Rated 3 out of 5 by fisherwoman2 Tropicwear shirt
While the quality of this shirt is good, the cut is skimpy. I wear a 16 so I thought ordering a larger size would give me plenty of room to move. This is more fitted than I would like and the sleeves, especially, are tighter than I prefer. I won't order another one or will order a 1X if I do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sprucefrost Excellent shirt for hot weather and travel!
I own 7 of these shirts, purchased over the past 2 years, and just ordered an 8th. They are perfect for long days in hot sun because the fabric wicks away moisture (perspiration) while providing excellent sun protection--neither of which cotton shirts of any weight are capable of doing. They also wash up very easily and dry in a flash. You can't do better than these for a hot weather shirt that also provides full coverage sun protection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Romey Quality shirt
My initial reaction was disappointment when I opened the package and saw the color. It was not nearly the shade of blue I had expected from what I had seen on-line. But I tried it on and it fit perfectly. It was very well made and the color appeared to change depending on the lighting one was in. After wearing it one day at work, I can easily say that it will be one of my favorites.

Rated 3 out of 5 by UpWithTheSun Snug at the Hips
I just purchased this shirt since I have an older version from LL Bean that I love and use all the time. The fabric is GREAT and dries quickly while protecting me from the sun. I read the previous reviews and hoped that this would fit me in the hip area, which is does but too perfectly. Since I wear this shirt over summer shirts, shorts or bathing suits in hot weather to shield me from the sun, I prefer to have it a loose fit. I normally take a medium shirt and sometimes a small, but I need to return it for a large to see if that size fits me better. I am not thrilled with the colors offered for this shirt either. A NICE patterned one or more pleasant colors would be appreciated since I decided that white was my only option since I already had the pale green one. The other colors are pretty dull and the Bright Citrus is too loud. Please bring back the women's shirt that is NOT fitted at the hip for this one! Possibly a collarless one would make it look less like a man's shirt, too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SarahforJamie Comfortable, well designed
I like these breathable shirts. The storage pockets are cleverly designed. I did not give this shirt 5 stars because I ordered 2 of them and the sizing of each was slightly different.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sweetbabycakes comfortable and lightweight
women's tropicwear shirt is wonderful! It washes well, I just shake and hang to dry, no wrinkles. It is great for lightweight & cool sun protection. True to size also, I love it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by almostperfect almost perfect
I have several versions of this shirt and they are comfortable, versatile, and great for travel. My only complaint is THE BUTTONS. They are made out of some kind of rubber(?) and difficult to button/unbutton. Please change back to plain old plastic.

Rated 3 out of 5 by LongIslandGal13 Nice looking, but disappointing
Not sure if I will keep this item. Nice looking, but didn't like the fit. A little too big in the shoulders and the sleeves were too long. I bought a XS because I wear a size 4. Maybe if they offered a petite, it would be a better fit. Something about the buttons that make it difficult to button. I first machined washed it on delicate and it came out too winkled. Dried it on low and it didn't help. I then washed it by hand and drip dried it. I still had to iron it. Other reviewers said it washed beautifully. They had better luck than I did. For me washing beautifully means no wrinkles and no ironing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NWoutdoorLady love these shirts but skimpy in hip
I have three of these shirts and love them. After losing weight I'm back in LLBean size medium, including perfect fit pants, so I bought my latest shirt in that size. It is too tight in the hips while perfect everywhere else. My older ones in medium fit perfecftly so these shirts are being made much more fitted now.
