I wear medium/size 8/36B. Medium fits perfectly. 5'3", 120 lbs, falls just to the widest part of my hips. It could use a little shaping in the back, but if I want I can just make a couple of tucks for shape. The pockets are so large I can fit my entire hand inside- they go all the way from the front placket to the side seams. I love that the pockets are in my slim area- below breasts and above my hips. I hate having stuff in pockets when the pockets are either on my chest or hanging down in my groin and bumping around when I walk or getting in the way when I sit. The extra fabric in the back will hide a slim fanny pack or a security document holder when I go to Europe. (At least I can get my passport out of my pants.) Pocket liner is mesh, has hidden-type zippers so people may not even notice the pockets.
My upper arms tend to get cold- when I bend my arms, sleeve comes just to the crook of my elbow, so they are perfect.
DRAWBACK- I just checked out this shirt in my closet. I washed and dried (low heat) and it has tiny pills on the fabric after only one wash. They come off easily, but still surprised there are pills from one washing. Maybe gentle or hand wash and line dry. On vacation, I'll hand wash, roll it in a towel for a minute, then hang to dry. It should be fine.

Comfy light shirt, dries quickly, zip pockets in good place (under bust rather than over or on top of), good for travel. Large zip pockets extend to side seam. But fabric is not cotton-nylon as product name and Overview tab say, but 70% nylon-30% polyester as Specs tab says. I would have preferred the cotton blend, but this seems comfortable enough. Its generous cut helps it feel cool. Note: matching pants are cotton-poly; due to different fabrics, the shirt color does not match the pants perfectly (at least in tan). But OK for travel, when my standards slip.
