White Cotton Courier Shirt

White Cotton Courier Shirt is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 78.
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 very comfortable and fun I discovered this shirt on and ordered it. And I love it. At first I thought it would feel like an old-fashioned maternity blouse, but I didn't. I wore it all day and it hardly wrinkled! Haven't washed it yet, but I have high hopes. About size--I ordered a small and medium. The small would have been fine, but the sleeves were a little snug. I am quite happy with the medium. And I did receive compliments.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from white shirt First emember, it's 100% cotton so those of you who have a thing about wrinkles, you'll need to iron. I don't care, and I love cotton.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Perfect Button Down I love this shirt. It's definitely oversized and is meant to have an oversized fit like the shown on the model. The material is thick so you don't have to worry about being able to see through it. I got the XXS and think it's the perfect mix between being oversized without making it feel like you're swimming in it. For reference, I typically order and XS in all other fits, am 120lbs and am a 32D.
