    I always need good white shirts, so I jumped at this one when it went on sale. It's more sheer than I would like, I wear a white tank top under it and you can fully see the tank top as though the shirt wasn't even there. I do like the structure of the shirt, it is fitted nicely. I docked 2 stars though because I prefer for my shirts to NOT be see-through. :(

    I really really like this shirt when I saw it online and when I received it. But when I tried it on, the sleeve, the burst fit perfect and the waist is too too tight ( I'm current size 2 on pants and top on almost the brand). I recognize that the most tops and pants I bought from Boden are tight at the waist and hip. Hopefully Boden fix the size. I really really like the style, the color and material.

      I agree with all the positive comments. The Shirt is my favorite Boden product and I get at least one every season. This year I paid full price for the bird design and it's my favorite garment. LOVE the contrasting cuffs and plackets.

      Reading through the comments I have noticed frustration about wash/dry/ironing. I never iron if I can help it. I have discovered the trick to this shirt: put it in the dryer and ALMOST dry it. Make sure to take it out of the dryer before it gets bone-dry. Shake it and hang it up and you will not have to iron it.

      I am ordering two in the clearance; I have enough shirts but I could not resist.

        I love THE SHIRT. I have many incarnations of it. It's a well made garment, with details that make it special, i.e. the contrasting cuffs. I'm a 34DDD and the the size 10 shirt fits well without the buttons straining.

          I was happy with this shirt from the moment I opened the box. The cotton is good quality, the color as advertised, and the cut just right. Especially when its on sale, you can't go wrong.

            This is a fun, comfy shirt! It is fitted so works well under a blazer, jacket or sweater. Washed well. My only wish would be a touch of a synthetic (2% maybe) so it wouldn't be so cottony wrinkly.

            This shirt has great color and detailing. The English sizing runs bigger than typical American sizing. The tag says to air dry, that is a bummer. I like to keep things easy, I wish it was tumble dry.

              I have a curvy shape and love the look of button-down shirts but have never been able to wear them because they never fit my c-cup bust without gaping or popping open. This is the first button-down shirt I've tried that stays put. It's cute under sweaters or alone. I personally like this better than the crinkle jersey shirt since this retains its shape pretty well so it looks a little classier IMO. I got the bird print since it was so unique. I will likely buy one a year as my budget allows. I will probably buy something less flashy next time. Looks great with jeans or dressed up for work!

                I was looking for a polka dot navy shirt for a long time and this one is really cute, the navy is dark which I like and the fabric can stretch a little bit so it fits comfortable. Overall very happy.

                  This shirt has a nice shape and fits comfortably under suits, sweaters, and jackets. My only complaint is that it doesn't come in a long. I'm 5'9" and not terribly long-waisted, but this shirt comes untucked on me. Boden, make a longer cut and I'll buy several! Also, it get pretty wrinkly, so make sure you have an iron handy if you like a smooth look.
