Sorry to be a forum hog. But I’d like your feedback.

First of all, Allsaints is brilliant to order from for US customers who use Amazon — you can use Amazon checkout and shipping was super fast.

It’s challenging to get decent pics of a black top, but I tried. I just put it on with cuffed straight leg jeans and black boots for a very simple attempt at styling. I was pleasantly surprised to see the neckline works without showing bra straps when worn this way —
I don’t think the Flashdance styling is for me.

It’s voluminous, but also a bit shorter in the body than I expected (odd because I’m short in the torso). I like where the slightly curved banded hem hits me, but when I reach or put my arms up, it does need tugging down afterward, and I don’t love that. I’m wondering if it’s worth trying a size up, or whether that will just be too much shirt on me. It clearly meant to be roomy but I don’t want unflattering. Give it to me straight — try another size or let it go and return it? There are a lot of black shirts in the world so I won’t be hurt if y’all think this is not the best on me. It’s not my usual silhouette but I don’t mind a roomy top sometimes as long as there is structure somewhere, which I think the waist and lower sleeve fit provide.

Side note: I have just discovered this is being sold at discount on the Nordstrom Rack site, so I could try a different size from there. Allsaints is offering 25% off but the Rack deal is even better.

Opinions? (I’m sure it would look better with styled hair and makeup, sorry for the disheveled appearance)
