Great staple with style

    This shirt is so versatile - I got the white with pink polka dots and wear it to work and warmer weather events. The overall style is classic, but the details at cuff and neck make it interesting. I wear a 6P or 8P in shirts, and got the 8P to avoid any worry of cling or pull at work, and it has plenty of room - true to size. Despite other reviews, I don't think it's too sheer.

      This shirt looks lovely and I was very disappointed that it did not fit me properly. I struggle to find button shirts that fit well and this style is among them. For me, the trouble was the arms--they were far too short. If, however, you know that this style fits you well, I would recommend it. The contrasting collar and cuff lining is a lovely touch.

      Very cute design and details but the sleeves are much too short for me. I am 5'11 and normally a size 6. I can only wear this shirt with the sleeves rolled up because they are about 1-1.5 inches short of my wrists. I bought this on sale so not hardly worth returning.

      I'm both style and comfort driven and Boden has a number of items able to fit that bill. While I will be keeping this shirt, I do wish Boden would conduct a bit more research on the general "body types" common to the U.S.. I have purchased/tried on clothes while in the U.K. and find the overall fit of most clothes to be a little too restricting in the back/shoulder area and I'm a small, fit person (120 lbs, 5'4" and have always been athletic). Boden has fabulous prints/styles, just work on the fit.

          I love how this shirt is a classic piece with a twist - the cuffs. It fits like a glove and is a necessity within a trendsetter's wardrobe. I look forward to ordering more just like it from Boden.

          A shirt for curvy girls! But wrinkly.

          I am wearing this shirt today!! I ordered 4 of this shirt in different colors because I love wearing button down shirts but struggle to find shirts that are fitted and flattering that don't pull across my bust. I am a C/D cup. This shirt fits the bill!! It is a flattering fit and doesn't pull across my chest while also contouring in at the waist and providing a nice structured look. It is perfect for me to wear to work- and I LOVE the constrasting cuffs! They look great folded over a cardigan.

          My main complaint with this shirt is how easily it wrinkles. I ironed it before going to work today, and by 10am it looked like I had slept in it. :( I was very disappointed by the quality of the fabric in this sense.

          Another complaint is that the white and the yellow striped shirts were completely see-through. You would need to wear a cami underneath. Even with a nude bra on, you could completely see my bra through the shirt. That is disappointing considering the cost of the shirt and Boden's usually high quality fabrics.

          If you are curvy or have broad shoulders and struggle to find well-fitting button down shirts, this is a great shirt. Just be prepared to iron it every.single.time you wear it.

            I love this shirt for so many reasons! I bought the navy blue with off-white polka dots. The print is super fun without being too bold. I often have a difficult time finding button down shirts that fit me - - I am 5'8" and have a long torso. This shirt is the perfect length for wearing tucked in, as well as un-tucked, for a more casual look. The contrasting pink on the cuffs when they're rolled is really cute and eye-catching!
