Central Shirt in Pure White

Central Shirt in Pure White is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 29.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love! I’m somewhat new to Madewell and this is my first Central Shirt purchase, but I will definitely be back for more! I am a medium in most shirts and purchased a small in this. The fit is still oversized but it isn’t sloppy. For reference I am 5’6”, 145 lbs, 34DDD. The fabric is a perfect weight and is not sheer at all. Pull from the dryer while warm and no ironing is needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Please never stop making this I own three! Will probably buy more just in case I stain one so I'm never without. Beautiful fabric - love the drape and not see-through (so hard to find in a white shirt). Essential!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love, Love, Love! I get many compliments every time I wear this shirt. It's so soft and comfy! I'm planning to order it in denim as well. I don't have to wear a cami underneath, which is a big plus in the Texas heat. It does run a bit large, so size down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very flattering silhouette I love, love, love the central shirt style! I wish you would come out with more colors more often. I check the website weekly to see if any new colors/patterns have come out. I'm a fan of darker colors, so I dyed this white shirt black and it's perfect. Please never discontinue this style!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this shirt! I absolutely love this shirt. It's so versatile and I have gotten tons of use out of it already. It's definitely a spring/summer staple. It's a nice material, thick enough that your bra doesn't show through but it's very airy and loose, and looks so cute front tucked into skinny jeans or high waisted jean shorts. I'm going to buy another in a pattern.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great staple! I love this shirt! The quality and fit is very flattering and stylish. It does run fairly large though, so I highly recommend sizing down. I'm typically a medium in shirts (5'5'' 145 pounds DD cup), and it's very difficult for me to find button up tops that don't gape at my chest or make me look top heavy/boxy. I was swimming in the medium! I had to size down to a small and an x-small probably would have worked, as well. This shirt goes with pretty much everything. I love it so much, I'm tempted to buy another one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another great staple! Ever since I discovered the Central shirt, I've always loved every pattern and color Madewell comes out with. This white shirt is no exception! It's not too thin (no bra lines, 32C) and is a beautifully soft material. I range from a S to M in Madewell tops since I like a looser look but always size down to an XS in Central Shirts to keep it a little shape to the shirt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very soft, slouchy shirt This shirt is really soft and gigantic! When I tried it on, I thought "hmm, maybe I'll try exchanging for the XXS and see how that works" and then realized that I had ordered the XXS, and it was just that big. I don't know what the difference is between the sizes, but I would definitely say to size down, even if you want a bloused look. I'm petite, but the XXS is almost overwhelming. Not quite, though! I'm excited to tuck it into skirts and high-waisted shorts, and wear open.
