White Cotton Courier Shirt

White Cotton Courier Shirt is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 82.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect white summer shirt I bought an xxs (usually buy xxs in courier shirts, otherwise get XS in tops) and I'm a 34B, shorter torso, 26 waist, 5"3 at 118#. You NEED this top! It is soooo versatile and goes with just about any kind of bottom: skirt, jeans, slacks, overalls, etc!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This one will get lots of wears! I love this shirt. Quality is great, and its not see through which I love. I'm 5.'6, 135, 34 C and I ordered a XXS. It still has that 'over sized' feel to it and I love it, but i do wish I would have gone with the XS for an even more so over sized feel. I will echo what some other reviewers are saying about the sleeves, they are a bit snug. But overall, its an awesome, clean cute shirt. The shirt is super cute tucked in as photo shows as well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You need this in your closet I can't say enough about the courier shirts - I love the fit and style of them. This white cotton version is an absolute must. The two front pockets give it that little umph that it needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Workday I love this shirt! I'm tempted to buy more--it's the type of shirt I could wear every day. I'm 5'-7" and weigh 135#. I range between XS-M depending on cut/fit. I bought this shirt in a small, and it's perfect. The material is lightweight, but not too see-through, and it doesn't end up super wrinkly at the end of the day. My only slight complaint is that I have a slight athletic build, and the sleeves are just a tiny bit snug on my upper arms.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tomboy Perfection Some reviewers have commented on the tightness of the sleeves. I am 5'4" and 145 lb. with muscular arms (I mean I'm not a body builder but does it count that I regularly work out and do push ups?) and the sleeves are a little snug but not tight in my usual medium. I do think the sleeves are meant to be tighter around the arm to help give the shirt some structure. If the entire shirt were oversized it would definitely be a shapeless tent, so if you like that sort of thing don't buy it. I pair mine with skinny jeans and booties and it's like everything in the world is right again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thick, stylish white shirt - FINALLY I have always loved Madewell's courier shirts. They work super well for tiny people, especially those with small frames and short torsos. I've always been more drawn to a tomboy-yet-fashionable look but often find it hard with other brands (I'm 5'3", 101lbs and have an inseam of 35" and like an inch or less between my ribcage and hips). Whenever there is a new courier shirt or one of my favorites on sale I snap it up. I particularly like this one because it is so essential to have a nice white shirt. It's loose enough that it doesn't look like a waitress shirt, but still is designed for small shoulders so it doesn't look like you are a 5 year old dressing up. Another important thing about this particular shirt is that it is super thick. No see-through here. I teach so it's important that my professional shirts don't allow my bra to be seen. I love this shirt and I'm pretty sure my students think I live in it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Casual and comfy I am absolutely in love with this purchase. It is so comfortable, great quality, and can be dressed up or down. Pairs great tucked in with jeans and a neck scarf. No regrets on this shirt, but I definitely suggest sizing down. I'm normally a medium, but purchased a size small.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this shirt! I absolutely love this shirt. One of my favorite shirts at the moment. I am 135lbs and 5'7 and ordered an XS. It ran a bit big. I like my items a little bit more tight than most.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A classic! I love this shirt! It's a classic white shirt I know can wear season after season. The fit is so chic and the material is the perfect amount of softness. I wasn't sure about the fit before I bought because I read some people say it runs slightly small. I'm usually a size small (5'2", 31-26.5-34.5") and wasn't sure about ordering a medium so I ended up ordering it in a small. I'm glad I did. It fits perfectly with just the right amount of bagginess. For me this runs true to size.
