Embroidered Cactus Courier Shirt

Embroidered Cactus Courier Shirt is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 55.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply darling! I fell in love with this courier shirt with mini cactus only I snoozed on it! When I decided I must have this shirt it was on backorder for three months. What can I say but it was definitely worth the long wait! As with all Madewell courier shirts it runs big. I normally wear a size 6-8, bra size 34 E and tend to buy smalls or mediums in Madewell tops. I ordered this shirt in a size small which is still roomy yet that is the cut. If you love the mini cacti embroidered on the shirt, run don't walk to your nearest Madewell store or order online!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nothing like it! I own a few of Madewell's courier shirts and this is by far my favorite. The mini cactus embroidered detail is clever and cute. Perfect little detail for the summer! The fabric is soft and comfy. I like to wear it half tucked in with rolled up skinny jeans or short jeans and layer a leather jacket or jean jacket for colder days. I am 5'1" and I usually wear XS at Madewell, and this shirt did run a size bigger so I recommend sizing down one size. I ended up getting an XXS and it was a perfect fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun and versatile This shirt has quickly become my go-to for spring. I'm devoted to my white courier shirt, and this embroidered version is such a fun variation for work or play. I love to wear it with high waisted jeans now, but I envision it with pull-on shorts when it warms up this summer! The quality is great, it's not very sheer, and it attracts a lot of attention and compliments. I love the slightly oversized fit because it is effortlessly cool without feeling too slouchy. I ordered my regular size and it was perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Such a FUN shirt I've been obsessed with this shirt since I received it. I totally understand where people are coming from with the small arm holes. I ordered an XXS and was feeling really nervous due to everyone's reviews, but when I tried it on, it wasn't bad--and I DON'T have skinny stick arms. They ARE tighter in relation to the rest of the shirt and are snug on my arms, but I don't hate it. I cannot wait to where this shirt again (and again). For reference, I am 5'1" and 115ish lbs with an athletic-ish build (I lift weights but also love pizza! lol)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE IT! Love how the courier shirt has a more feminine fit than most button downs. Super flattering and original looking!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it Such a cute blouse, boxy, crisp, very stylish. I am sure I will find lots of excuses to wear this gem of a shirt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Shirt for Joshua Tree Whenever Madewell releases a shirt in this style, I always buy. Why? It is always the finest quality and I feel like a hippie in the wind. Not a hipster, a hippie. I have the windows down in my Subaru, playing the Rolling Stones, and this shirt is blowing. Keep in mind buying this shirt: it is suppose to be big. I typically buy a small in normal shirts, but for this one, I got the xxsmall. It is perfect. I highly recommend buy it before everyone catches on to the greatness!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fo Sho! This top is a definite keeper. I have never owned a courier shirt but was stoked to see such a fun pattern. I am 5'4" and 120 lbs. I ordered the XS and S...ended up keeping the S. Yes, it's big but fits like it does on the model. It's 100% cotton so figured if I end up wanting it smaller, I'll shink 'er. I love this top so much and can't wait for it to warm up!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beyond obsessed. I'm in love with this top! The fabric is great and it feels well made. I sized down to a small from a medium and it was definitely the right choice. It has an oversized fit, but if I had bought a medium I would be swimming in it. It still has a fashionably loose fit even sizing down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cactus Makes Perfect Finally embracing the embroidery trend. This top was too cute to pass up. I like that it mixes the crisp white button down with the embroidered green cacti. The shirt does come a little oversized but that's what I like about it. I ended up getting mine in an XS and would normally purchase a small. Happy Shopping!
