Rated 5 out of 5 by Flowergirlgolf Comfortable Madras
I love the softness and sizing of this shirt, it's a feminine fit without being too roomy towards the hip. I am 5'4" and the petite sizing falls at my hip and the sleeves are a perfect length. I was afraid there would be a gap in the button down in the bust area but there is not, and the shirt does not pull at the bottom hip area. A well made shirt. I don't think the yellow color stands out either, the red shades are the colors on parade here but even so, they all blend well together.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ilovebooks Nice but a little too bright for me
I love the idea of a bright madras button down, but this was a little too much for me. I agree with other reviewers that the yellow/lime green colors are the problem; to me they looked almost neon and seemed to consume the other tones. I do think it's a fun and vibrant plaid, but I'm more of an earth-tones person and this shirt just wasn't "me." It went back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KirklandAAShopper Great shirt
Received my size 2 today - I am 5"3 , 34B, and 110. It fits perfect, but a close enough fit that I will not dry it - don't want any shrinkage. Will only fit a camisole underneath or else tight in bust. Colors are all nice and bright, there is more yellow than I thought just like a previous reviewer said, but it is tempered by all the other colors. The only downside of a shirt like this is where they cut the pattern and what colors then end up by your face- I would have preferred the pinkish shade to be on the collar but I got the pale limey green which is my least fave color on the shirt. But still love it overall - very unique shirt looks great with a cardigan.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Madaboutcatalogs Gorgeous, but too much yelllow for my coloring.
This is a beautiful, well made blouse. Unfortunately I have to return it, because yellow is not a flattering color for me and the yellow in the plaid stands out far more than I realized from the photo. I love everything else about it, and will buy another if Bean continues to bring out new colors in this shirt. Btw, I ordered a 10 and a 12, and would have kept the 12. I am 5'8", 140#, but a litttle broad in the chest and shoulders. I felt that the 10 was a little tight across the back when I swung my arms around.

I couldn't be happier with my cotton madras shirt. It's made from sturdy, woven fabric, the Bay Aqua color is gorgeous, and the size 14 hugs my 40-36-39 frame without fitting too tightly. I will be wearing this beautiful shirt for years to come. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BigSkyOhio Divine Madras in Salmon
Usually a M in most Signature & Bean tops, got the 12, w/plenty of additional room to layer a tee underneath, yet fitted enough w/a neck that actually isn't huge on my scrawny neck. The salmon is really flattering w/my coloring. I have very short hair so the feminine color is a bonus. Love the drab army green colors, w/black checks. One of a kind shirt, one of a kind find. I have another Sig Madras & these do not shrink in wash or hot dryer.

Rated 3 out of 5 by iluvllbean123 It shrunk!
I was really excited to wear this shirt! I loved the rich colors and the fit was perfect...However, after the first washing, the sleeves are now too short! I definitely recommend sizing-up when you order.
