Breeze-Back Tee in Stripe

Breeze-Back Tee in Stripe is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple Chic Just for reference, I wear a size XS but I usually order size S in tees at Madewell just because I like them a little baggy. But since this top is open-back, I went with the XS and it fits just the way I like it to. One thing I like to point out is that Madewell, for some reason, always makes their sleeves a lot slimmer than normal. So the sleeves are fitted for me but I don’t mind it as long as it’s not tight-looking. This is a little pricey but honestly, you get your money’s worth with the quality of the top and how much you’ll be wearing it. It’s simple and goes with everything that I have. I’ve worn this to work with a boyfriend blazer so it doesn’t show the back. And I grab this shirt as many times as I can when I go out because it’s so breezy for hot summer days.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super comfy! But very long. I love this top. The back slit is actually really subtle with how oversized the shirt is. It's totally comfortable and I love this stripes. I also like the cuff on the sleeves.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Size Down! Definitely a cute top, but just like the description describes it's very boxy. I had to size down from an xs to an xxs

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Fun For The Summer!!! This shirt is very cute. Definitely shorter in the front than the back and has a bit of a boxy look, however the back slit makes the shirt remain feminine. I am 5.6 and about 123 lbs with no chest and I got an xs and it fit perfect. With black jeans and sandals it is a great look for the summer.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from looks better in the picture This shirt is cute but its just too boxy. The sleeves are fitted but the body of the shirt is huge. I tried to size down and the body looked proportionate but the sleeves were ridiculously tight. The slit in the back is cool though.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Boxy I'm 5'3" and 115lbs, got the size XS. The body is super boxy however the sleeves are fitted on me (unlike in the photo where the sleeves are loose on the model) so it looks kind of off, since the body is gigantic and the sleeves are tight. Looks better in the photo IMO.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A Giant Slit In The Back? Why on earth would anyone design a shirt with a giant slit in the back? It almost looks as if it's been torn, but the edges are just to perfect. I'm not going to pay for a shirt that has a rip in the back, that's just dumb.
