This is the perfect top for travel. Casual but can go into evening.
I recently purchased this shirt to try out anatomie and I was wildly impressed. No matter what season, I get hot traveling through airports with my 2 year-old. Sure enough, after lugging our bags from the parking lot, making it through security, and finally to our seats, I was drenched in sweat. You could even see it when I raised my arms to stow my bags. I waited patiently for the air to kick on, hoping I wouldn’t have to spend the entire flight in sweat-drenched clothes. To my absolute amazement, within 5 minutes of the cabin being cooled off, the wetness on the shirt began drying up. Within 10 minutes, you couldn’t even tell how hot I had been. It dried SO QUICKLY! I am sold!
Nice color and lightweight to wear in the summer. The mesh in the back V bunches up a little bit but overall, it looks good and sits well. This needs to be handwashed to avoid any snags on the mesh. I'm 5'7, 138 lbs an ordered a Small. It is not fitted/body hugging but it drapes over the body well. The shirt runs a little long but it still has a relaxed look if tucked loosely into jeans or shorts.
Since I travel only with a carryon I need to be able to wash my shirts. The XS taupe summer Kim mesh top is a great design with mesh sleeves that allow covered arms even in hot weather. I weigh 205 and 5'3" and the top was fit well. I wore the top when traveling with a 2 year old who wiped her greasy hands over my sleeves and body, so I had to wash the shirt twice during our travel. I had to wash the top twice to get the grease out but it washed well. It takes longer to dry (overnight) than the Luisa pants fabric. After 3 washing (by hand gently) I noticed that the sleeves developed some elastic fraying near the seems (see photo) but these are not noticeable when wearing the top. This is the reason for the 4 rating. There was no snagging or pilling from the body. The stretchy quality makes the shirt fit well and great for summer or as a second layer beneath a sweater.
I got this in the dusty rose. So versatile! Think I will try to order the light blush before it is gone
I just wore this on my f 21-hour flight to Singapore. It has kept me comfortable through heat and cold temperatures, where before I would sweat when the cabin got warm or be too cold. I wore it under a thin quilted jacket for this travel and it was perfect. Washed it right away after I got to hotel, indeed it dried fast. Very impressed with all my Anatomie items so far.
