Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect little tee I am 5"3' and 120 lbs. and size S of this tee fits perfectly for me ... looks just like the fit on the model. Can't be happier ... especially with the sales price. Washed it once and the quality is great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super comfy I bought this in a large, although I usually wear a small or medium. Super comfortable and the fabric is really soft.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from In LOVE with this tee The forward-seam makes it just that much better. It's simple but such a statement. Comfortable. Not too cropped but not too long for a crop either. I loved it so much I bought a back up tee. I purchased this on sale and was well worth it. I recommend to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not just Made Well, but Well Made! I love every Madewell tee shirt that I have and this is no exception. Always a little different to add some panache even to my ripped jeans! Side Note -- Madewell, I am sure you have your reasons for offering a lot of linen tees. I, for one, would buy a lot more if more cotton was available.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE this shirt. The shape is great. It's not too long, not too short, and looks awesome with basic blue jeans. Or almost anything else for that matter. It's simple enough that it can be worn with a lot of different things, but the bien fait makes it more than just a black t-shirt. The forward-seams on the sides are subtle but very cute too. It's lightweight, breathable, and super comfy fabric. I get a lot of people asking me what bien fait means. I'm 5'7", 120 lbs, and got the small, which is what I normally get. Perfect fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from cute tee This tee shirt is super cute and comfy. I got it in one size larger because I didn't want it so cropped. since I'm short a small fit great, yeah it's boxy but I like the fit and it's just cropped enough to work with the swingy fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE IT I love this shirt, but I did go up a size to get more length. It is a little boxy but still works and you can wear it with jean, shorts, or a denim skirt. It's comfortable, flattering, and I can see this lasting several seasons. Very happy with my purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very sweet tee Soft and flattering, slightly loose and boxy fit. I got my usual size small. It is a nice length on me -- not too long or short. (I am 5'5".)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great summer tee. I've had the bien fait phone case for over a year now so when I saw this t shirt I had to have it. I'am 5'7" 145lbs with a DD chest. I got the medium and it's perfect. The price was way more than I like to pay for a shirt but sometimes you've got to treat yourself.
