Well, I've been through three of these shirts. The first, a "Medium" fit like a second skin. That's not good when you're out in a boat and need to move. But I'd worn it, so I kept it and ordered the next size up...a "Large". That one was HUGE, with armholes that would accommodate Mike Tyson. It went back and I tried a third time and ordered another "Medium". This one is perfect, though it's supposedly the same size as the first.
I don't know what to tell you about Columbia's sizing, except to expect at least one exchange. I'm 5'7 and weigh 130. The "Medium" should be right (and was the third time) but with this company you just never know. Thank heaven for STP's generous exchange policy.

I have the Super Bonehead shirt in the long-sleeved version, size medium. It fits perfectly. The sleeveless version is sized all over the map. My first try, the same medium that fit well in the LS version, could barely be buttoned. Thinking a size larger should be right, I ordered the Large. It's HUGE, with armholes that gape so badly I can't wear it. It will be going back.
The shirt itself is gorgeous. I have the blue fish pattern with pink "clouds". The one I can (barely) get buttoned looks great on. But the sizing problem needs to be fixed.

...the first time I saw it. I have the long-sleeved version but couldn't rest till I got this one. I read all the reviews about sizing and, since I normally wear a "Small" I ordered a "Medium". It was, shall we say, form-fitting and now that it's been washed I can barely get THAT buttoned.
Quality and styling of this shirt are excellent but, oh! those Columbia sizes. I like the shirt so much I'll re-order a large. Who knew a fishing shirt could be sexy?

I got this lovely sleeveless shirt in a medium. It fits perfect, is long enough in the front and back. I've had several compliments on the pattern. It's fun and has a bit of dressiness to it because of the collar. I've worn it to work and I work in very hot weather. The material a bit heavier than I though, but if it were any thinner you'd be able to see your bra easily.
Haven't had the pleasure of wearing it fly fishing yet.
If you're like me and don't like to iron, take it out of the dryer as soon as it stops.

I have the long sleeve model of this shirt and like it so thought I'd try the sleeveless style. As others have stated it runs on the small side because the body is shaped - except for the arm holes which aren't gigantic but are definitely shaped odd. I am in-between a size Large and an Extra Large so the XL shirt actually fits my symmetrically shaped body pretty good - except the arm holes gape a bit in the front. A sports bra does not show at the under arm though so that's nice. From my experience with the long sleeve model I know this shirt will wrinkle quite a bit unless you dry it lightly in the machine. With the fit being on the small side it could get tricky drying it all the way as it might shrink. I dry this fabric in the dryer on low for just a very few minutes then stretch it out and hang it to finish drying - it would look better ironed but I've retired myself from ironing!

I picked the plaid--not because I needed a fishing shirt or shooting shirt, or whatever, but because I wanted a plaid shirt for summer. It IS a sport shirt; I'm not sure which sport, but there is a mesh panel behind the shoulders covered with shirt fabric. I'm not sure why (to store your lures there? So you can carry a bazooka gun without messing up your clothes? I clearly don't get it) but if you care, it might spoil the line of your work blouse. If you have an hourglass figure, or maybe a muscled shoulders but a lean waist, this might ffit you better than it did me. I was never that shape and I never plan to be. Also, Columbia runs smaller than other big names.
Thee plaid is very pretty, but I won't be able to wear it, so it will have to go a back.

I have several other Columbia fishing shirts in Medium which fit perfectly. This one seems just a hair snug, though maybe that's just the fitted style.
Styling of this shirt is great. It's actually pretty...something you wouldn't expect from a fishing shirt. I love the blue sailfish pattern. It has pink "clouds" on it. I thought they were flaws at first but they're part of the print and very interesting.
