White Tie-Front Shirt

White Tie-Front Shirt is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from True to size - size up for a more relaxed fit I have this shirt in two other colors and so I knew that this fits more true to size than oversized like some other Madewell shirts. While it is true to size, I think the shoulders are a little narrow/snug. Because of this I sized up to a Medium because I wanted a more oversized and relaxed look for this shirt. I'm glad that I did that, because this material is thicker than my other shirts, since it's all cotton. Like another reviewer said, it is slightly cool toned. Also, it's quite opaque and not sheer at all. I can wear a nude bra underneath and you can't see it. Great for the summer. Me: 5'5'' 125lb, small bust Madewell sizing: XS - S in tops

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic white button down but better I have been searching for a white button down for awhile but they always have something just a bit wrong with them. This shirt is perfect. Love the front tie and that there isn't extra bulky material in the back. So soft but not sheer or too thick. A perfect closet staple. I stayed TTS and bought a small (5'5, 128 lb) but wanted it more form fitting. To get the looser look I would have needed a medium

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought ANOTHER ONE! I received my shirt three weeks ago and I have worn it so many times so far that I just bought another one! Just in case it's not back from the cleaners when wanted. I can not stress how cute this shirt is. I'm 5"7' 120 and wear XS in most tops (32C). I wanted this casual and comfy and that's just what it is. I got this top in a "small"... I can't wait to wear it with swimsuit bottoms and a big hat for the pool! I've been wearing it with Skinny high waisted jeans so far. Must purchase!!!!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Prefect Shirt The fabric is so soft and thick enough. The tie-front design is really cute. This is a whole year piece. I am 5' 4 and 105 lb. I bought size XS, and it fits perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great soft cotton, sits well The material of the shirt is exceptionally soft which makes the shirt sit well and not be a 'ball' above the tie. Suits well with jeans but also in the office, at least when combined with more formal trousers etc. As for the fit, I am 5'4, 115, 34b with straight body form and xs was perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE this shirt This shirt is so soft and made with really nice comfy cotton. The back doesn't have a long tail so nothing is tucked in in the back. The front is made to tie so there is no gathering like with a long button up shirt. You can tie either tightly or loose like. The sleeves look great scrunched up like the picture. Easily dressed up or down. I have worn with cut offs & with jeans and wedges. True to size. I am 5'5" 120lbs and got a small. Perfect. I really recommend you get this shirt. I haven't washed it yet (just ironed) but when I do, I will hand wash and iron a little, hence the 4 stars not 5 on quality. But I am sure it should be a 5!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great shirt, but on the shorter side love the idea of this shirt, but beware, it is more cropped than not. i'm petite and found it hit me right at my upper hip bone. nice fabric, not too sheer, and cute cut. will keep but be mindful of how short it is!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely Top - but runs small! I love this shirt, it's casual, cool, but still polished and just pulls everything together. I definitely feel like this top runs small though - I'm usually in between an xxs and xs at madewell and I bought the xs, but feel like I could have even sized up to the small and been ok. I'm 5'5" and thin, but this seems a little short and on the tighter side. I still love it and don't think it's too small to warrant an exchange, but I was definitely surprised, it's more fitted than the model photo. It's also pretty sheer, which I wasn't totally expecting. but overall, super cute and look forward to wearing it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this top! I really love this top BUT when I bought it the picture showed a BRIGHT WHITE top when it arrived I noticed it had a blueish tint to it. I ordered another to see if this was a defect and was disappointed that it too had a blueish tint to it. After coming back on the site I see they have updated the picture to reflect this. Even with this discrepancy it's a great shirt. It's on the thinner side and soft.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable & chic The tie front shirt goes with everything. Very comfortable. I am 5'3" and petite. XXS is a bit too big but like the shirt enough to keep.
