To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Due to the lack of size guide, I purchased an XL thinking it would be similar to an Australian/UK XL - it isn’t. I’m a size 14 Australian and the XL is a 16-18 Australian. As the return cost to exchange is exorbitant I can’t return it either... Otherwise, the shirt appears to be of good quality fabric and is well made.
I usually wear L or XL. I bought this shirt in L, white, and I liked it's shape and all but thought I'd like to have another one in blue and a little larger, so I ordered an XL. Yes, it did fit better through the shoulders and chest, but it was SO much longer - like 2 and 3/4 inches longer. In fact it's a high-low hemline -- the back is much longer. The first one I ordered, the hem is the same length all the way around. Another differences is that the white one was made in Vietnam. The blue one is made in Bangladesh. I won't be able to tuck the blue one in -- there's too much fabric. It's alright not tucking it in but it goes past my bum.
The existing reviews say most of what I would share. Additional things I would have wanted to know:
(A) the shirt truly is princess seamed, but it is NOT substantially slimmer at the waist as it appears on the model in the photo. It has a bit more room at the bust from the seaming, but it is otherwise just a standard cylindrical shirt. If you have very curvy hips and a slim waist, it may not work.
(B) the shirt does NOT button to the neck and can't be adjusted to close that way because there isn't enough fabric. So, if you have to wear a tie for your work uniform, this shirt won't work well for you.
These two misleading points are the reasons I gave it 3 stars instead of 5. Other than that, it seems like a very nice shirt. I will keep it -- I can wear it with some things -- but I won't buy another.
I bought the bright blue not navy blue. I love it!! The quality is great for the price! I wanted to purchase more but they are sold out. I purchased a XL. Size 16 regular. I can fit 16-18 depending on the style. So this was perfect. The first button from the top sits right above the chest area and not the collar. So you could wear It as a casual dinner wear. I want to buy all the colors. Just got the white one too! It goes good with Jeans or work slacks. I wear a short dress blazer over my shirt for work. So the bottom of the shirt is revealed just a bit on the bottom and it is flattering as a color pop. So nice.
I bought XL because I have large arms. The shirt is very well made (as expected from Lee!). The extra button at the bust is great. The buttons are also hidden, which is a nice touch. The XL is loose on me, so I can wear it as alone or open with a T-shirt. After ordering the XL, I bought the white in L. It fits perfect (even the arms!); however, I will have to be careful about what bra to wear because a bra slightly darker than my skin showed through. I usually wear shirts that are L or XL, depending on the brand.
