Boy.. I hate to sound like everyone else.. but I LOVE this top. I agree that it would be a good idea to block it. It would look really cute over a black long sleeved shirt!!!

I love it! If the lumpyness around the straps are really annoying to you, you could add two medium or one large button to the base of each strap to kind of hide it.  I have always wanted a shirt that this but with buttons.  Overall its very cute, you did a really nice job.

Hi Cathyc,
Did you vaporized  the straps? That could help to eliminate the bumps on the straps. I agree with everybody that your top is beautiful, and you look good wearing it.

I'd wear it. The gold stripes in the stomach area are a little distracting, but the straps and bust part are really cute!

Hi!
I really like the part at the bottom and the colours.
I think once you have a better fitting bra on as suggested it will look cool.
Possibly shorten the straps?
Maybe try a v neck next time, might be an idea.
Hope you get to wear this tho, its pretty.
regards

I think the style can *only* work with big boobs, to respond to what you said. I would've gone with a slightly darker orange, but I still really like this piece.

I like it, too! I've bought tops that have waaaay more flaws than I can see on yours.
If you can't stand it as a top, it might look good if you somehow made it a bit longer, and then wore it over some thick black leggings with a black tee under it. You can never have too many short little sweater-dresses, you know.

There's nothing wrong with that top. It's your undergarments that are causing the problem.  Find a good lingerie shop with someone who knows how to fit brassieres. 

Oh dear. I've already done that!!! I'm in a brand new fitted bra which I'm happy with...although it is true, I don't know that the US is like but here in Australia I have very little choice because I am very small across the back, maybe a US size 8 at most.

I think it's really cute and I don't see any mistakes. I like the idea of adding a ribbon under the bust of it, tho.

I like it as well, it's bright, cheery, colourful, and flirty in a way. If you don't like the way it looks on you, you could always give it away as a gift...
