    This is a timeless shirt with the perfect edge. It is comfortable, fits well, and if it's like another Boden shirt I have, it will last a long time and get many many compliments.

      I love this blouse but back this goes because like the other petite items I ordered, the fit is off. It is too short.

      So Sad :-(

          Best Uses

            I ordered this in the gorgeous blue/lavender gingham, lovely color with the contrasting collar and cuffs! But I've tried "The Shirt" in both a size 8 and 8 petite and just can't seem to make it work. The size is perfect every where except in the bust. The darts are too low and too big for a size A/B cup. I've tried several seasons in a row with this style and have had to return.

            I'm bigger on top and sized up to a 18 rather than 16 to avoid the dreaded side peep show. I love the print and the contrasting collars but wish it was a bit longer and perhaps had a little stretch so it wouldn't become so wrinkled.

              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.
