Nice Shirt Shaped Like a Maternity Top!

Verified Buyer Reviewed by BeachMom from CA on Sunday, January 29, 2012
This shirt runs true to size. Based on previous reviews, I ordered one size up and it was too big and the odd fit was accentuated. Once I had the right size (normal size I wear) the strange cut was not quite as bad. The best way for me to describe the cut is that it is like a maternity top! Fitted around the shoulders/bust and in the back, but way too much fabric around the front (not back) midsection. OK I suppose if you have a pot-belly shape. Aside from that, I like the zip pockets for travel. The sleeves are long (good coverage for sun) but may be too long if you have shorter arms. I can't figure out why the Columbia label in front is on a velcro tab. I'm not sure what one would attach/unattach there without it being in the way (maybe an ID badge?). I ordered the Imperial color thinking it was purple, but it is really blue (color is off on the website). I'm keeping the shirt because I like the fabric and colors and the price was right. Would have returned it though if it were full price.
