This blouse was perfect in almost every way & I contemplated keeping it to see if my seamstress could rework the collar ruffle, but given the price (even as an awesome STP sale), I couldn't justify the extra money. Two other reviewers commented on this flaw and it appeared to me, that one side just hadn't been as closely gathered as the other side, resulting in more bulk and a collar that wouldn't stand up because it had too much fabric.

I own quite a few Paperwhite blouses and love them all! I wear a size 8 and an 8 in Paperwhite ALWAYS fits the say way...flattering and reliable. Ordered this Paperwhite tunic in two different colors. Each fit differently. One was noticeably larger than the other (both marked sz. 8) and the ruffled collar on the blue one flopped over on just one side. Tried everything I could think of to get it to behave, to no avail. Really odd. The fabric in both shirts (blue and black) were pretty colors, but thin and cheaper than their usual standards. I then noticed that these were made in China...all 7 of my other Paperwhites were made in Thailand. Apparently, someone in management at Paperwhite is trying to cut costs. Hope this is a one-time experiment. Hate to think that such a great resource for blouses has gone astray. Really sorry to post a negative review.
The chest measurement for a size 6 is 39 inches.|The chest measurement for a size 8 is 40 inches.|The chest measurement for a size 10 is 41 inches.|The chest measurement for a size 12 is 42 inches.|Hope this helps with sizing.
