i'm gonna try both BD S and BD XS. one of them should fit.
the AD XS feels very loose and blousey, so the darts and smaller chest in the BD fit will help. i think the comparison between brands varies heavily depending on the tagged size. AD XS is definitely much bigger in the chest and waist than epaulet XS.
i have in my possession three WvG melon tencel shirts. BD S, BD XS, and AD XS. BD XS fits me the best, although it's a little roomy in the chest at 19" pit to pit. everywhere else it fits fine.
for reference: the WvG BD XS fits similar to band size 1 (small) and a little looser in the chest and waist than epaulet xs.
i tossed it in the wash (cold) and will probably tumble dry on low heat for 5mins to get the winkles out. i expect shrinkage will be minimal to none. i'll try to post a fit pic later tonight or tomorrow.
thanks again mauro for getting the BD XS made for me since it was sold out. i love this melon color and the tencel blend is crazy soft. the other two shirts will ship back to you soon.
when is the next tote holder email gonna drop?
