Love this blouse. The fabric is lovely and silky. The colors are rich and it looks like a well made, quality blouse. I first ordered a 4 and had to reorder it in a 2 as the 4 was too large. I am 5'2" and about 113 pounds. I haven't washed it yet, but it is cold water wash and looks like it should come out nicely.

This is a repeat purchase as I have one in another color and wear it constantly. It's a beautiful shirt, well cut, flattering, and washes well. The cut is neither too slim nor too boxy; the princess seams add just enough shaping. The silk gives it a lovely smooth drape, so it can be tucked in without extra bulk. It really doesn't need pressing, just hang to dry, or use an iron for a light touch-up. The placket and collar seemed a bit stiff, initially, but the facing/lining serves to assist the tailored look in the long run. All of the color combinations are beautiful. I love the wing collar, which lays flat.

This is a lovely shirt, with all the nice construction details I've come to expect from Paperwhite, though I would certainly hesitate to purchase it at the suggested retail price! I particularly like the cotton-silk blend. As for sizing, I'm tall (5'9"), so I did not find the shirt length or sleeve length too long. I am slim in the upper body, wear a 4-6 in stretch fabric tops, and I can wear this shirt in both the size 6 and size 8. The 8 fits better, however, as I have broad shoulders. The body is roomy, but the princess seams are slimming.

Very nice fabric,good colors, but it is not "vanity sized" I have a size 44-46 chest, and with top end American brands a large ususlly fits. This one had "gap"oisis. My sister-in-law will be happy with it for Christmas.

As an update to my last review: It seemed to me that the size 10 (my usual size) was a bit too loose, so I ordered another of this shirt in a size 8. It fits perfectly--neither too loose nor too tight. So my advice would be to order a size down from your usual size. The quality is really outstanding--you won't regret it!

High quality fabric; beautiful cut. I'm 5'7", 133 lbs., 34B bust, somewhat broad-shouldered. I usually wear a size 10, but found the body of the shirt to be a bit large, if still wearable. The shoulder fit was perfect, but I'm going to try the size 8 for a better overall fit and hope that the shoulders will still fit, as well.
