Rated 1 out of 5 by MargieG Frumpy and Boxy
I so loved the fitted polos and I am shocked to see that you have done away with them. This is a frumpy and boxy shirt that will not flatter anyone with a waistline. And why only the two buttons. Luckily I had ordered several of the fitted polos of yesteryear and have lived in them. Unfortunately they are getting a bit raggy but I won't replace them with these boxy numbers.

Rated 2 out of 5 by tobele fitted is better
I love the fitted version of the 3/4 solid color polo.
Fitted is more youthful looking
I have 3 that are great for spring and need to be replaced.
The full version looks too dowdy for me. And, the fitted long sleeve is too warm. PLEASE BRING BACK THE FITTED 3/4 SLEEVE!!!

I usually wear a 2x in the polos but this one is way too short and seems to be a bit tighter than the usual polos. I sent back the 2x and ordered the 3x thinking it might fit better, but it is also too short. It's going back too. Note that I'm 5'3'' - yes, short - but these shirts barely come to my hip. Not attractive?I'll stick with the regular polo shirts.

I finally found a Tee shirt that fits just right. Now as I have been trying to order again, they have evidently discontinued this style. I wonder why??? In fact, I've told others to order this style. Please offer them again. Also the solid colors. I want some spring colors.

The length is perfect! Don't ever change them. Short waisted women with a full figure look great in these, no "belly hugging" as with regular shirts. I just wish there were more colors in all lthe Saturday styles.

Rated 1 out of 5 by psugirl Bring back original polo
This is not the same quality or design of the previous polo. I have that polo design in almost every color. The fit was so much better - not boxy like this one and it had more buttons at the neckline,
a larger opening at the neckline and a more flattering fit. Please bring that design back!

Rated 2 out of 5 by NorthofSF Sadly, must rate this frumpy and dumpy
In spite of mixed reviews for this shirt, I ordered it because the item description seemed reminiscent of the original women's Double-L long-sleeved polo, which had a shorter, top-of-hip length and a boxier cut that still managed to look a bit A-line on the body, so it didn't make one appear barrel-shaped. Alas, instead of creating the slightly A-line shape I was hoping for, this polo bows out at the midriff, making for a very dumpy, Pillsbury Doughboy look (I bought it in white). And because I bought a light color, the sheerness of the fabric is very noticeable, clearly displaying the jacquard design of the nude-colored bra I was wearing when I tried on the shirt. As the shirt was on sale, it isn't worth the time or money to ship it back, so I'll keep it to wear only when I know I won't be seeing another soul, or when I just want to embrace middle-aged frumpiness!
Though I was able to get the shirt over my head without trouble, I can see what other reviewers mean about the relatively small neck opening. I like that there are only two buttons, which is the number of buttons a classic polo shirt should have, but that's about the only resemblance this shirt has to a proper polo. Product reviews reveal many suggestions for changes to items to meet our own personal preferences, so I'll weigh in with mine: perhaps offer the classic Double-L women's polo (in pique and jersey) in both the shorter, boxier cut and in the longer, shaped and fitted style, too?

I have ordered several of these shirts for a couple of years now and still love 'em. Lightweight, good length and durable. They are obviously popular because many times I have tried to reorder and found most sizes in all colors depleted! Would like to see more colors - black included.
My only complaint is it is understocked!
