Rated 5 out of 5 by Northern123 A keeper for Years
I've tried on several LLbean linen shirts and this is my keeper.
I'm 5-2" size 10-12 a 36C, pear shaped and find that the medium is a perfect fit. This shirt balances me out and I love the side slits on both the sleeves and bottom. This gives added width without extra material. I find it very flattering on my body. It's just enough coverage without looking droopy or slouchy.
This is a classic that will never go out of style and a good investment shirt that will last for years.
If different colors are offered next year, I would suggest colors that are more on the neutral side. I'm not fond of the bright pinks, greens, and blues.
I prefer black, dark grey, light grey, mountain red, brown and navy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sunflowers54 Year round casual comfort
I bought my first shirt 5years ago and now own 6. These great shirts drape well and get softer with every washing. They can be worn alone or over a tank, but always look terrific. Can't say enough good things about them! Only drawback is that they need ironing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BeckyNY Well made but long
This shirt is well made and the fabric is very nice, but it was a little too fitted and too long. I have bought many shirts from Bean over 30+ years, and always wear the same size. And I have ordered linen shirts in past year (way past), but this styling is just too slim.
This may work well for tall, small busted and very fit women.

Very disappointed with this shirt. The material feels very rough and uncomfortable to the skin. The shirt arrived wrinkled and the material appeared to just be always wrinkled. I am not a big fan of constantly ironing clothes and I had hoped that linen had evolved to be more consumer friendly. Keeping this shirt wrinkle-free is too much of an effort for casual summer wear. Would not really recommed this item to anyone. Usually LLBean offers much better quality for their products.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TahoeBarb Nice but wrinkles
I really like this shirt but every time I buy linen I kick myself afterwards- it wrinkles like crazy. This shirt in a nice cotton would be perfect. Other than that, it is great- good color and fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MTOD Cool and comfy, need plus sizes!
These shirts are so airy and comfortable, and I love the colors. I'm 5'6", 140, 36D and the S was a bit too tight in the chest, so I kept the M. I do wish they were cut a bit looser in the chest and tighter in the waist, but they're so comfy I'm not too bothered about it. They're also very versatile so I can wear them with ratty jeans or dressier slacks. LLBean, you REALLY need to make these in plus sizes. My mother has been looking for a nice short-sleeved linen shirt for ages, but she's a plus size and is now super jealous of my new shirts!

Lightweight and comfortable in the summer heat and humidity. I use it as a shirt or as a short-sleeve jacket layered over a sleeveless top.

Great shirt, just make sure you select the correct size, I chose a large and it is quite big. Will be roomy and comfortable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DomsGram short-sleeve linen blouse
Very comfortable blouse. The button hole size varies from one blouse to another, however, so it was necessary to sew a couple of stitches on some of the buttonholes on a couple of the blouses. In spite of this little glitch, I really like these blouses for comfort and style.
