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.

        Cute but not for me

        This shirt is very cute but did not fit me well. It was too tight in the back of the arms and shoulders, yet very wide in the waist area. I do have wide shoulders and back but the crinkle Boden shirts fit great in the same size. I am disappointed. This shirt is probably fine for someone who is more narrow in the shoulder area.

            The shirt is a nicely made soft cotton with a fun contrast lining inside cuffs and under collar. I did find it a tad short but not enough that I sent it back. I am busty but it does not gape in my recommended size. A nice basic with a twist (in the patterns)

              This shirt is beautifully made. The pick stitching detail on the cuffs & front give it a classy look. Nice fabric, & the print coordinates are great. I normally wear a size 8, but it was tight through the shoulders. I've reordered in a 10 & hope it fits, as I LOVE this shirt!
