Designed to flatter: Ruching skims the bust but doesn't cling, while a sparkly contrast band defines the high waistline. The designer adds a gentle trapeze line to the lower body's silhouette for a top that drapes comfortably. A twisted I-cord is applied to the raw neck and armhole for a polished finish.
