Must have struck lucky
I loved the look of this and having read the reviews, did size up, which does give a good but not loose fit. It is a really striking and pretty tunic that looks great with the periwinkle Ocean Crops.
I am by no means slim and sizing up was a must!

very poor fit - returned
so disappointed when this arrived, in two sizes, a 14 and 16 (I can be both in White Stuff). Like other reviewers I struggled to get the 16 on had to check the sizing, not sure an 18 would even fit. So returned! Interestingly I ordered another tunic in same 2 sizes and the 16 was perfect with lots of room. Shame

Sizing an issue
Like others have already stated sizing is an issue with this item. Even when I sized up one size it seemed tight and didn't hang right until my husband suggested ironing it. It had arrived heavily creasesd and a quick press and it was a different top altogether - so I'm keeping it. However, was unimpressed with how it arrived and it was only because I loved the colour that I kept trying it on to determine why it didn't seem to fit properly.

This looked so lovely in the picture - I was really looking forward to getting it. But I struggled to get it on and once I had, the arms were too tight. It didn't hang well either. Had to return it.

I got a 16 in this even though I am often a 14. Tried it on in the shop - the sleeves felt a little tight but otherwise it looked OK - mainly I fell in love with the colour and the button detail at the back. But when I put it on at home, discovered that the sleeves ride up, which makes the neckline sag in a very unattractive way. Also, the viscose fabric used for the back creases up very easily indeed.

I ordered a 16 so it would be nice and loose. Managed to get the item on however it was a tight fit and one sleeve was tighter than the other. I have returned this. I have not had this problem before. I have a feeling the item has been sized wrongly. Very disappointed with it.

Far too small
I agree with the other reviewer about the sizing - I am a 14/16 and thought I would go for the 16 so that it would be nice and loose. However, when it arrived I too had trouble getting it over my shoulders and it was way too tight. I had to look at the sizing to make sure that I had ordered the 16 because it was very small. It might look good on someone who is very slim but like a lot of other things that I have ordered from the new season it is going back :(

I love this tunic. Perfect fit in my usual size 10. It shall be having its first outing with white crops and sparkly heels . Would look equally as nice with flat pumps. A little costly but made use of the 15% off . Love the delphinium blue , looks fresh against the white. For me a perfect purchase. Thanks Whitestuff.

Sizing very strange
I ordered this as I had been wanting to use my personal code for my discount. It was between this and the fluttering maxi skirt but unfortunately there were no skirts left in my size so went for this as I thought it looked really pretty. It arrived today but I am going to send it back.
The fit was poor, I managed to get it over my head but then that was it ! Arms, shoulder way too tight to even get on. It also looked drab, not as nice as the picture. Sizing seems way off or maybe I just got a duff one. I'm not reordering though as it didn't live up to my expectations.
