Great Shirt for work...
on August 16, 2013
I purchased this shirt in a 1X Plus and I normally wear a XL. However, I wanted a slightly looser fit for work, which this shirt was perfect for. It is comfortably loose, but not very loose. I have curves, so I have to account for my hip width, which is a bit larger than my chest width. The upper portion of this shirt is looser on me (not horribly so), but it fits perfectly around my hips (I'm a size 16/18 pants). The reason I love this shirt is that it is generous in length and in the sleeve. I can move freely without restraint around the arms and I don't have to worry about the shirt raising up too much when I raise my arms or bend over (I'm 5'10"). I have a very active job which involves a lot of movement, so i need to ensure that I am comfortable in my clothing. I have not washed it yet (just wore it around the house to test it out), so i cannot comment on whether or not it will shrink or fade. Though, after reading other comments I will most likely wash it on gentle cycle, cold water and then hang it to dry. The material is medium thickness, so it is not too hot in the summer. I also like that it is generous enough to allow for a thermal underneath in winter months. I gave it 4 stars because the black is a tiny bit faded and it is not an extremely flattering cut (though not an ugly cut either...it's a style meant for work). All in all though, a great purchase so far.
