Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect white shirt love this shirt; just wish the XLG wasn't always sold out. Managed to snag a couple here and there when they had like one in stock and then a few days later another one dribbled in. Wish I could get a few more. My uniform is this shirt and jeans lately...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shirt. Great white shirt. Pretty basic, fits like all other oversized items by Madewell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic White Shirt I have been hunting forever for a great basic, not tissue thin, white shirt. This one is it. It's a soft cotton that is not too sheer, but not so thick it's all but denim either. Do size down though if you're petite or just want a more fitted look. I'm a curvy 5'3" and weigh 165 pounds and L fit me just fine. I could probably even get away with an M, but I like having a bit of an oversized body skimming fit, which this one does nicely. And when you wash this shirt it doesn't shrink or come out so wrinkled you need to iron it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfy white shirt The material is soft and with a good quality cotton that you can wash and wear. A basic must-have in your closet. Goes well with boyfriend jeans for the casual paris-chic look.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Recommend sizing down This shirt is oversized, as it states, but I actually went down a size from my normal XS to a XXS. It's still nicely oversized on me, but it doesn't look like it's totally swallowing me, like the XS would have. I'm 5'4 with a 31 inch chest an 25 inch waist, if it helps anyone. The material is not as thick as I was hoping it would be, but it's not sheer either. I got this hoping to layer it under roomy sweaters, and I think it will be perfect for that.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent value on sale I liked the idea of the oversized white shirt, but didn't realize there would be some slight shaping/contouring in the shoulder seams. The shoulders are a little wide set so that the connecting seam to the sleeve hits a little off your shoulder. This is fine, but the shoulder itself is cut with a little shaping that is slightly too narrow for my frame. That said, it's not too noticeable, especially because I always wear a scarf or a jacket or something on top of a plain white shirt anyway, but it's definitely something that would have made me think twice if I hadn't been buying final sale, sight unseen. I got it on sale, so I'm happy with filling this closet staple with this shirt for now.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just what I wanted The shirt is well made. I like the true white color. It is a little sheer, but not too bad since I always wear a tank underneath. It is also true to size. I got it in small. It fits my shoulders perfectly and still gives good room for the arms.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Solid classic, but pretty sheer This is a great classic white shirt, but it's definitely on the sheer/thin side. Even a nude bra shows through, so if you're not into that kind of thing, you'd want to wear a camisole underneath.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from No more pure white ;-( I bought the shirt during the summer and absolutely LOVE it. Perfect fit and material. I recently ordered another one because it's so great and, sadly it is an off-white cream color now - which just isn't the same. I took it into 2 stores to see if there was a mistake and all the shirts are the same cream color (I brought in my shirt from the summer to compare). The sales associate was stumped and suggested there may have been an material error in the latest batch of the shirts because they are defitnely a different color. Please bring back the pure white!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too boxy The cotton is stiff and uncomfortable. It not only runs large but boxy
