    I bought this in white and pink polka dots. I love the white; crisp and classic. I plan to wear it with shorts all summer. Polka dots just didn't do it for me. Color wasn't flattering on me and it seemed tighter across the chest which is weird because I would think it's the same pattern but it pulled where the white didn't. Anyway, I returned the polka dot but kept the white and love, love, love it!

    IMPOSSIBLE to iron

      Oh goodness. This shirt (I ordered white, 8 petite) is IMPOSSIBLE to iron. Strangely, ironing the shirt caused the material to pucker under the iron, and basically ironed weird ripples into the fabric. I gave up ironing it and washed it, thinking I would try to iron it again. It was even worse. The hem of the shirt flipped up after washing and remains kinked/pointing up. It is a nice-fitting shirt, and the details (buttons, placket) give it such a subtle little dash of style. But it is deadly impractical. I honestly would feel cruel if I took this to the dry cleaner and asked them to iron it for me. It will be going back. I'm curious whether all the colors are as bad as white, or if the white is specifically terrible. I can't believe that others can give good reviews on such a terrible shirt; makes me wonder if I got a lemon, or cut from a weird piece of the end of the bolt of fabric or something.

          My husband has a shirt from Boden and with this pink shirt, we make not an identical but a natural couple look. I love everything about this shirt except that this shirt runs a little bit small. Size 4 is my normal size from Boden but this shirt seems to be about half inch small on the shoulder. I wish the fabric was 5% mixed with elastic or 1/2 inch bigger.

            I ordered this shirt in the pink gingham pattern and it is gorgeous, but too large. I used the size recommender, which said I should order 6 petite (this was my first time ordering for myself from Boden). Size 6 was a perfect fit in the other items I ordered, but not in this. I had about 3" of spare room all over, which made it look dowdy instead of fitted and tailored the way I like this kind of shirt to fit. Since I love the shirt and think it will fit much better once I have the right size, I will reorder in 4 petite.

              I so wanted to love this shirt. The fabric is beautiful. For me, the chest, shoulders and upper arms were uncomfortably tight and I had ordered a size above my normal Boden size to start with. Unfortunately, had to send it back.

              Everyone needs a great basic white shirt. The staying is great but the fabric on this one is thin and fairly transparent. I also found it difficult to iron and when my iron left a small stain on it (there was something on my iron) it wouldn't come out.

                Love this shirt! The pink gingham is bright and cheery for spring. Sizing is accurate. I was a little concerned as I am nursing, but this shirt falls beautifully with no gaping. I'm back to order more for spring.
