White Cotton Courier Shirt

White Cotton Courier Shirt is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 146.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect slouchy skirt A staple to any wardrobe; the white cotton button down shirt. This one is absolute perfection because it is no see through! So many ways to wear and style it...needs a little more attention post-wash with ironing but I'm ok with it. I feel like it livens up my typical mom wardrobe. I was between a size S or M but ultimately went with a M, which is my normal size. Perfect amount of slouch without feeling like I'm swimming in the shirt or that it's too constricting. For reference I am nearly 5'7, 150 lbs, size 36-28 C in bras.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from cotton courier shirt This is my first item from Madewell and I love it! Took my regular size xs, and it's my favorite white shirt in my closet. Great fit, style and fabric! I took one start off quality because the stitching is not continuous, it breaks at visible points. The piece also came with a lot of loose treads of fabric. The sewing ins't well finished.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite shirt I love this shirt because it is super comfortable, soft, and classic. Although it is relaxed looking (and feeling), it still keeps it shape and doesn't look sloppy. I have this in solid white and also white with green cacti. I wish Madewell would sell this shirt in other colors including chambray and navy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this top I've been contemplating buying this top for a while and I'm really glad I did. It's such a staple item! The sizing is a little odd as the other reviews note - the sleeves do run a little tight for how loose the rest of the shirt is. I'm 5'9 and 135lbs and usually wear a small or xs. I went with an xs and the sleeves are a tad snug - definitely wouldn't fit an xxs, but the Small would probably be baggier than I would want. Shirt is great quality though, don't need an undershirt with which I love.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from XXL... Finally! I'm a big fan of the Courier shirt with the foldable sleeves and longer length in the back. I generally wear a 16-18 so I can sometimes make an XL work at Madewell because of the generous fit but I'm THRILLED that XXL is now an option to give me a little extra wiggle room. This shirt's material is much thicker than the Central shirt, which I'm also a fan of. This feels like a heavy cotton (not quite as heavy as a utility shirt but almost) and the Central shirt felt like a thin button up. I chose this Courier shirt over the Central shirt in white. A must-have staple for every closet! Excited to see a modern short-sleeve option in white.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect shirt This is the best shirt. Like the other reviewers said, the quality is really high. It seems that I ha e gotten used to getting a shirt that is practically see through. This one isn't! So right away I am loving it! (It seems that the last few purchases I made fromMadewell all have amazing quality and relaxed cool feel) The fit is really relaxed and cool! I have seen other reviewers worry on the sizing but I didn't have any problems. I usually wear a small and this one fit perfectly (for comparison I am 5 feet six inches tall and approximately 125 lbs. I have a slim straight build.) This shirt will go with everything - jeans,pants or a skirt (for the kind of Audrey Hepburn look). Don't miss this shirt. You will love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Button Down! I've been eyeing this shirt for a while now and finally decided to just buy it. It is seriously awesome and fits really well. As others have stated, it has an oversized fit but the sleeves are really fitted. I typically wear a Medium and tried a Large for a bigger sleeve but it was too big everywhere else so I stayed with a medium. Will definitely be an all year shirt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Get a smaller size than you think I am an X-Small in everything Madewell, except this shirt. I ordered online and it was huge and very boxy. Be sure to order a size smaller than you think you'll need. The fabric is thick enough to not be see-through but also light.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect top! I saw this top online and I went to my Madewell store to try it on. I tried the XXS since that was the only size they had in stock and it was a perfect fit. I have never worn an XXS in my life, but this top is quite over-sized. It's very well made and perfectly structured while also being incredibly flattering. The material is pretty thick, so you don't have to worry about it being see through. For reference I am 5'1 and 120 lbs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite White Shirt!! This has to be my all time favorite white short sleeve shirt!! It goes with everything anytime. First, time buying (ref: 5'7 140 broad shoulders) L size was too big, accidently shrunk which made it a small (still wear) so I bought it again in M - its a perfect fit!!!
