Whisper Cotton Long-Sleeve Crewneck Tee

Whisper Cotton Long-Sleeve Crewneck Tee is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 62.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I live in these tees I am obsessed with the whisper cotton long-sleeve tees. I have them in every color. The material is super soft, the fit is just a little loose. They are super comfortable and can be thrown on anytime. I've worn them to work and to the gym.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this top! I love this top!! Finally, I found a great basic top that will last longer than one season and that is long enough!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very comfortable! I do go up to a large in these--from my usual medium-- just in case they end up in the dryer. I now have 3 or 4 of them and can say with conviction that they are really the most comfortable shirts ever!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this shirt, I have it in 3 colors! I love these long sleeved t-shirts. They are true to size, but loosen a bit after a few wears - nothing dramatic though. I am 5'7" ~135 lbs and I got a size small. The material is thin but not see-through. I would wash on delicate cycle to avoid tears. Would love if they had this in more colors/patterns!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite I LOVE this T Shirt. It is incredibly soft and comfortable. Washed up nice too, no shrinkage and it was not misshapen. Do order a size down unless you want an extra baggy look.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from whisper cotton long-sleeve crewneck tee, small size I bought this tee around two months ago and I love it, but after wearing this maybe four times I got two holes and two runs in armpit area. This is not big deal for me, I can repair it, but quality of this tee, in my opinion, is poor even for sale price. (If possible I can send a picture).

Rated 2 out of 5 by from So conflicted.... These shirts are literally my LIFE BLOOD, as in I wear them all the time, but the quality is heartbreakingly poor. I really hate saying so because I'm such a Madewell fan and I swear by them to anyone who will listen! However just this week I discovered gigantic rips in both armpits of my black crewneck long sleeve, and a big hole in the collar, rendering this shirt completely unwearable. Not only that, but the stitching has come completely undone in both sleeves so I constantly have to trim all the little strings hanging down. I haven't had it nearly long enough for it to be falling apart like this, and I always wash it exactly the way the instructions say to! I'm giving it two stars because the style is still wonderful and I really do love how it looks, I'm just so sad I paid full price for something that didn't last at all :/. My advice (regretfully) is to either buy this shirt on sale, or not at all.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor Quality Surprised to see so many good reviews for this shirt. Yes, it's whisper thin and comfortable. But both armpits ripped with large holes even before washing for the first time. I was stunned since the fit was loose and baggy. The material is incredibly thin (too much so?). Stitching at seams isn't top notch. So I just wear the shirt to bed now. Disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great shirt- until you wash it I LOVED this shirt when I bought it. It's super soft and comfortable and had a nice, loose fit. However, I washed it once (exactly as instructed) and it shrunk so much and started falling apart. I can't even wear it now. I am so beyond disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed. I was looking for an every-day long sleeve tee shirt so I bought this in grey, and another one in bright ivory. First of all, the grey one arrived ripped. There was a gash in the middle of the shirt. The ivory shirt was more cream colored, and completely see through. In addition to that, I typically where a XS in Madewell, and the S was too small, and ill fitting. These tee shirts were thin and I felt that the overall quality was poor. They just weren't worth the money. Overall, really disappointed. I should have listened to the previous review.
