Rated 2 out of 5 by quitecontrary Funny button placement
I had to return the 8, my usual size, because it was far too tight across the shoulders. 10 was out of stock so I tried the 12. I tried it on and it seemed a bit loose but that was okay. Until I wore it to work... When I tried it on, I didn't notice how the buttons gapped. Then at work I glanced in a mirror and saw that with the top button unbuttoned, the next 2 buttons gap and show my bra and chest. I tried tucking it in tighter, and finally unbuttoned the next button down, and that seemed to work (although that made it lower cut than I like). I don't know why some shirt manufacturers can't get button placement and overlap right. I'd return it, but I no longer have the return documents.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NorthernNewYork Excellent Petite Fit
I find this shirt to be a rare find for my petite frame. I am 5'2", 122lbs, 30DD bust, I bought a 6 Petite...usually shirts would be tight thru the bust but too large elsewhere. This one strikes the rare balance of fitted, but no too much so, and is very flattering. It kind of floats on my frame, but skims at the same time. The second button from the top is about 2 inches below the hollow of my throat--that is lovely placement, where just a bit of my collarbone is visible but it is still modest. The cons: it is very thin, although I can wear the striped print without a camisole. There is some gaping at the buttons also, but I have chosen to deal with that with double sided tape. To me, the fit and lovely tailoring is worth the cons. More of these in petite, please LLBean, I will buy them for years!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Oppy beautiful soft cotton shirt, great fit
This shirt is a return to the cottons of yesteryear, like the British Liberty prints, cherished by so many. It is soft, drapes well, and is cut beautifully. I find many of your shirts a bit "matronly" in their fit and styling, but this shirt is different. The collar is more youthful and up to date, the print is very attractive and it drapes well. It is cut a bit on the longer side, in keeping with the current styles. I would love to see more of these small floral prints in other colors, with small collars and perhaps 3/4 sleeves for summer. Also, a collarless shirt, cut close to the neck, perhaps with some tucks along the front buttons would be terrific - but shaped, not too loose. I am a full size 14.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Mmtw rice paper thin
I should have believed the other reviews that this would be transparent. Maybe a solid dark color would be OK, but the check seemed see through all over! Obviously returned as I had no use for it at all. Poor choice for a signature piece!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Sigourney Too sheer / weird darts
This shirt is too sheer to have the (ultimately three-layered) darts in the front. If there was some way to shape the shirt without these odd opaque stabbing shapes, that would be much better, and I may have been able to make the shirt work. As it is, wearing a nude camisole underneath you can clearly see the neckline, and the contrast is made far worse by the darts. Hmm. Mine is being returned.

This is a wrinkled mess. Impossible to iron and not worth the trouble.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GardenStateMom Great Shirt
I bought this in the store so was able to try it on first. It has a great shape (as in, yes it comes in at the waist) but is not tight.. (I'm about 5'6" and 150 lbs and bought a 10.) My arms are long, and the sleeves fit. I have a broad back but a relatively flat chest and the coverage is very good -- no gapping. In this dark blue color, this isn't sheer. I've been wearing this regularly under sweaters as the cuffs and tails, with the little dots, look good peeking out. It has washed well. I'd buy this in another color/print if I could.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Freesailor Signature Lightweight Poplin Shirt
I love this shirt. I just ordered myself a second shirt in a different color. I have not owned a shirt of this quality since I used to order from The Hathaway Shirt Company and that goes way back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by FabricFancier Nice fit and feel
I ordered this shirt hoping it was a slightly peachy pink, but it was not, and actually it is very pale, almost a pink-tinted white. It does look nice with the sweater I wanted it for, and the fit is very comfortable. I was a little concerned that at my age--57--the fit would be too tight in the mid section but it seems fine. I don't want a boxy shirt that creates bulk under a sweater, so I am not disappointed with this shirt. The size 8 fit actually was fine for me (5' 4", 143 lbs); I was thinking I might have to order a 10 since the Signature clothing line is cut for slender, youthful figures. I noticed that LLBean describes the fabric as soft, but really I think "smooth" is a better description. Poplin is a tightly woven fabric, so it does really get "soft" and mushy (thankfully). That is not to say that the shirt is super crisp either; it is just right The smoothness of the fabric feels great against the skin, I must say. If you hate ironing I would not recommend this shirt, which is 100% cotton. When I received it it was full of wrinkles. I don't mind ironing (in moderation!) and I like the fabric, so this shirt is definitely a keeper, I would like to see more interesting colors and prints added.
