Rated 5 out of 5 by Angels Light and Pretty
This is a beautiful shirt. In person, the fabric is light, soft, and breathable, but it is definitely not see-through. It fits true to size and has a flattering, slimming shape. I hesitated before ordering it since some of the early reviews described the shirt as see-through and said it required a camisole beneath. Perhaps some other colors were more sheer, but the color that I bought was the purple and pink print, and it is light, but not sheer. I don't need to layer anything beneath it. I washed it inside a net bag, in cool water, on the delicate cycle and hung it on a hanger to dry. It came out perfectly. I am very happy with this purchase and am sorry I didn't order the coral plaid as well, before it sold out. I hope Bean brings this back next Spring.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Colemangirl Beech Hill Blouse - Very disappointed
I ordered 2 of the Beech Hill short sleeve blouses, the print and also the turquoise blue plaid. I sent them both back, I was not impressed with the quality of these blouses. I was surprised at the poor quality. Stitching was not good, and although I was looking for some lightweight tops, I found they were just plain cheap. Sorry LLBean, they were very disappointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Zoolbia Compi and cool shirt
The shirt is the same as described on the web page, except the colors are not as bright, but still bright enough. The cotton fabric is really comfortable and summery. I like the fit, though it could be more stylish. all in all, I like it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tommei Wonderful for Warm Weather
I personally love this shirt. It's so soft and comfortable and perfect for hot weather. The fabric is thin but not see through. It's think to keep you cool. I personally love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by edngu Adorable!
I got the blue shirt with yellow flowers & the plaid one as well. Those cap sleeves are just so adorable. Both shirts are cute as a button. Have gotten lots of compliments when I wear either one. They are both super great for warm or cool summer weather. Altho the fabric is light it is not see through. Easy to wash & I just hang dry, shaking them out every once in a while.

Rated 5 out of 5 by flbeangal Lovely, feminine, flattering, sheer, and cool
I first bought this is in the green plaid, and loved it so much I bought one of the floral print ones. I'll buy the coral plaid when that is back in stock! I love the shirt - it is very sheer and cool, perfect for hot weather. Very feminine, but professional enough for me to wear to work. I wear a cami underneath it. It washes beautifully - hang it right out of the dryer and I feel no need to iron it. My husband complimented me on it, too!

Rated 2 out of 5 by PCray Fabric flimsy and doesn't support seams
At first glance I loved this blouse. Unfortunately, I am sending it back due to ripping. I wore it twice. The second wearing rips starting occurring in seams on a sleeve. Then I noticed holes on the other sleeve. I have given the problem a great deal of thought. I know that I didn't cause the tears. I do believe it is a defective material.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ashevillian Perfect for southern humidity
I love this shirt! I like the plaid (purchased Green Glen & True Blue), though they are a bit more muted in person.
The thin fabric is exactly what I'm looking for, southern heat and humidity can be difficult to dress in- this works great!
Looks nice with a chino twirl skirt and some boat shoes, I've worn it frolfing and hiking and it has worn well. Slows the sunburns down and keeps me cool, perfect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by OldWoodsWoman Cook, comfortable, good fit
I am at present wearing this lovely shirt. It is cool, comfortable, a very pretty print and a good fit, which is hard for me to find. The only drawback is that it easily creases.

Rated 5 out of 5 by diinin Light colors are a little see-through
I do think this shirt is see-through. I got the Island Coral, which is a light color, and was going to return it because I could see my bra through it. Wearing a tank underneath would defeat the purpose of having a shirt for stifling weather.
I had it ready to ship back, but decided at the last second to show my husband. He really liked it, and convinced me to keep it. I do love the cut, the fit, and LOVE the rounded collar! Makes it look so feminine. The coral color is just stunningly beautiful. The fabric is so light, you feel like you're wearing nothing.
Ended up ordering the blue plaid one too, which should be a lot less see-through because it is darker. I will wear both on their own, tankless, and hope no one is looking too closely!
