Other reviewers right- runs big! Shirt is Classic men's style. Reminds me of shirts my brothers wore in the '80's at height of preppy ... Accessorize with feminine details and it works. Ordered medium and it is roomy. Bought on uber discount so may spring to have it tailored through the waist - a lot of fabric to try to keep tucked in.

Great fabric--lovely, cool silk in a tidy, casual pattern. Maybe slightly geeky-looking when buttoned all the way up, like the kind of thing you'd expect a computer programmer to show up wearing when "business formal" attire is stipulated. (I know a lot of programmers.) Anyhoo, I got the XS whereas I generally wear about a size 6 or 8 in shirts, since I didn't necessarily want the fit to be too relaxed. It fits me well in the body, circumference-wise, though body and sleeve are rather short in length. I plan to wear it tucked into high-waisted skirts, and unbuttoned and/or tied in front as a cover-up layer. I'll probably roll up the sleeves and keep the top buttons undone to keep the look more on the "elegant casual" side and less on the "uncomfortable programmer" side.

In general this is a nice shirt - well made and lovely fabric. The fit is not right for me. The shirttails are long and flare out. It is long like a tunic so too much fabric to tuck in but it just doesn't hang right. It's going back.

Wish I had a closet full of these blouses. The medium-weight silk, full cut, and classic color and pattern are perfect for long days at office in appropriate look with comfort. The extra effort to dry-clean or hand wash is well worth it.
