Central Shirt in Stripe

Central Shirt in Stripe is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 26.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definitely an essential shirt This is my new go-to for any time I want to look put together (with minimal effort). Love it with high waisted anything, culottes, and leggings. I got a medium, am 165, 5'6, and super small boobs. It hangs just right and is structured in a cozy way. Not see through at all so I can skip the bra, which is always a plus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One, two, three... MORE!! I purchased this blouse in the stripes and then needed the red gingham. I really love it! It does fit larger in the arms and across the front. Primarily because of the style of the blouse. The front has gathering at the shoulders which causes a billowy affect if you get your regular size. I'm generally a large/xl and I purchased a large. The only issue I have with it is - because I have wider hips, the bottom button pulls just a slight bit and the top bunchs up in the back instead of lying flat over my bottom. However, it is a shorter length so that doesn't bother me. If you did go larger to avoide this possibly happening to you, it gets really overwhelming in the arms and chest. I recommend a front tuck if you do go larger. All in all, I ❤️ this blouse and I intend to buy more prints and solids. One note: the white one is an entirely different material than the stripe and the gingham. So it is more of a stiff button down and not as comfy or soft feeling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great for postpartum/breastfeeding I bought this shirt specifically with recovering from labor and breastfeeding in mind. Stylish enough to wear out or to work, blousy enough to hide my recovering baby body in. I like it so much I bought it in a different color as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE- perfect for warmer months I stuck to my normal medium for Madewell and it is oversized. I like it that way, but some of you might consider sizing down. I think the model must be wearing a size larger because the sleeves were not that long on me. I do have broad shoulders though. This is a perfect lightweight shirt to transition into the warmer months. It breathes well and I know I will be able to wear it through the Texas heat. Will be wearing this a ton! Thanks Madewell!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hate viscose Please, make this style in cotton, like last year! Love the style, have central shirt in bright indigo. It fits large, but in beautifully way. I'm between xs and s, and xs is great.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love it but The sleeves are too short. It looked in the picture like they were elbow length, but they are not at all. Loved the fabric. I had to return.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect spring shirt This shirt is perfect for spring and really soft, cute, and flattering! Basically the perfect shirt, especially when you want to feel casual but put a little more effort than just a tee. Its an oversized fit, so size down. One thing that caught me off guard was that the listing says "machine wash" which was a big selling point for me because I HATE hand washing, but the tag on the shirt says hand wash or dry clean. Not a big issue, but worth mentioning.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not for me I saw this shirt, fell in love it with. Read all the great reviews. I ended up ordering a size down, based on the reviews I read and how I like things to fit. This shirt looks horrible on me. Really broad in the shoulders, sleeves more like cap sleeves, not long like pictured. Fit tight around my hips and ballooned out everywhere else. The fabric is soft and falls nicely. Maybe I should not have ordered down a size, but this shirt does not fit and it not flattering for me. Returning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flattering staple As a smaller gal (5'3", 125lbs) with a G cup chest, it's nearly impossible to find any button-down pieces that are equal parts comfortable and flattering. This shirt, however, is cut just right and is the ideal amount of "oversized" for my shape. I bought the shirt recently in S, and it fits perfectly. No gaping, goes with everything. Tomboy & chic, it's already a staple.
