Central Shirt in Stripe

Central Shirt in Stripe is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 38.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love, but... I got this shirt in the classic navy color and I really love the feel of the fabric and the fit. I'm normally an XXS to XS in madewell, depending on how baggy the shirt is. I bought this in an XXS and it's very roomy and drapey. I love the fit and look, but one thing I noticed in the picture on the model is that the sleeves are almost to the elbow and on me this is a normal short sleeve length. I'm petite, 5', so I was surprised at how short the sleeve was on me, I wish it was more of a longer sleeve length. Other than that I love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Madewell Does It Again! This is such a light and beautiful summer top. I've worn this shirt tucked into shorts, jeans, skirts- worn it tied up and loose, every which way looks great. The shirt drapes nicely, but isn't as structured as the courier shirts (which are my go to). If you prefer things a bit less flowy- size down. I am 5'7'' and wear a 12-14 40in bust and I could easily have fit the large, but chose the drape of the XL. Madewell tops have my heart.

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 Absolutely gorgeous! Hangs beautifully. Feels amazing. I get so many compliments for this shirt and wear it so much, I bought a second one. The only thing I don't understand is why Madewell hasn't yet taken this *perfect* combination of cut and fabric and made even more choices of color and pattern. I also own the Central Shirt in white (decent) but the other Central Shirts really don't hang as well as this one does due to subtle differences in weight and composition of the fabric.

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 Tried this on one in store and had to have it! The top is really cute and flattering - perfectly oversized!

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 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 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 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.
