Rated 3 out of 5 by RoseyRoo Requires ironing-not for hot weather
The interior facing under the buttons and button holes wrinkle when washed, and the seersucker fabric "pucker texture" increases to an annoying degree.
It is also not for hot weather, as the pucker texture effect of seersucker traps body heat. This shirt only looks decent if it is ironed very well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LindaCapeCod Seersucker Shirt with 3/4 Sleeves (White)
I was concerned about shrinkage on this 100% cotton seersucker blouse. But washing it in cold water and hanging it to air dry resulted in no shrinkage. It's a nice blouse that I bought to wear with jeans, well made, as I would expect. I'd have preferred long sleeves that I could roll up rather than the less versatile 3/4 sleeves. All in all, it was more than I wanted to spend at full price and the style wasn't exactly what I wanted, but with LL Bean, you know it will last and that counts for a lot.

Nice fit and very good fabric. This washes and drys nicely, with just a little iron on the collar and bottom hem because I am picky, Was very disappointed that most colors sold out early on in women's sizes. I would have purched more.

Blouse felt rough even after washing. Basically I like my clothes to feel soft and this is not

Rated 1 out of 5 by Schnarps Oddest Fit
I had tried this shirt last year in 2X and returned it about one hour after receiving it because a button broke in half without even being touched. Because I had liked it otherwise I gave it another try this season, this time in 3X because I had felt that the 2X had been a bit snug in the sleeves and chest and in the warm season I prefer looser clothing. My usual LL Bean varies between 1X and 2X.
Well - the 3X went back as well. The fit was still just as snug in the chest, back and sleeves but huge around the mid section - very shapeless looking and too long (I am 5'7"). I don't know what it is with the cut of this shirt but it is obviously not for me. I would apparently need a 4X or something like that for it to properly fit me in the chest and sleeves, and a 1X to 2X (max) to fit around the middle and to be the right length.
My conclusion is that being on the bustier side and having broad shoulders makes me the wrong body type for this shirt all around.

Rated 4 out of 5 by tavidog1 Easy to care for, minimal pressing required
The seersucker is a classic. I am complimented everytime I wear the 3 colors I have. I wash in delicate cycle, permanent press drying cycle and hang up. I only press the button flap/lapel so it doesn't welt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ruralNYshopper high quality shirt
Cold washes and hangs to dry very well - no wrinkles at all. Fabric wears well during the day with minimal to no wrinkling, as well. Color true. Workmanship high quality. Only suggestion is that upper arm size be increased just a little to give a more comfortable fit.

Very happy with the shirt! The loose fit and seersucker fabric make it ideal for hot summer days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by EMD62 Comfortable, versatile shirt
I love the feel and fit of this shirt enough to own 4. The size runs a little smaller than expected. A perfect shirt for summer casual. Washes well.

Rated 2 out of 5 Poorly made
For a forty dollar shirt, I expected better quality! The seams were very rough. I just did not think that it was LLBean standard!!
