Central Shirt in Stripe

Central Shirt in Stripe is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 16.
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 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 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 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 Perfect spring/summer shirt I love this shirt. The fit is slightly oversized but not so much that you're swimming in it. And the fabric is very light weight and perfect for the weather where I live! I would highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect spring/summer top love this shirt! bought it in xxs (i'm 5'5" and thin) and love the fit. it's still slightly drapey and oversized. i think an xs would fit more like the model photo - the sleeves are nowhere near that long and big on me. super soft and love the fit. will be a spring staple for sure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this shirt! Absolutely love this shirt! It's quickly become a new favorite in my wardrobe. Super flattering, soft, and comfortable. Looks great tucked in or not. Relaxed, easy fit, though definitely oversized. I'm usually a medium in Madewell, and got this shirt in a medium... I like the way it fits me, though a small probably would have worked just as easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New favorite My new favorite shirt! I love the weight and drape of the fabric - i just wish they would make PJs out of it!! I would live in them. It did shrink a touch the first time I washed it but I planned for that so It's good. I'm 5'1" and about 110/115 lbs, I got the small and it's just right as a loose fitting shirt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes me forget about my other shirts. I'm impatiently waiting for warmer weather to come so I can start to wear this shirt! Looks grown-woman tom-boy with my low slung Boyjeans, super trendy tucked in my Perfect Vintage Jeans, and ultra slouchy chic with pull on shorts. You need this shirt. ASAP.
