Rated 5 out of 5 by 99cents medium indigo my favorite chambray
This is a simple, beautiful, clean-lined chambray, and I am so happy with it. I am 5'5", 112 lbs. with narrow shoulders and 32B bust. I generally wear XS to S tops, depending on the brand and cut. After reading the reviews, I went with size 2.
I am so pleased. Size 2, on me, is lightly shaped--not fitted. There is sufficient room for movement and it does not pull across the front or back. It is slightly less tight than the ones on the models, which is what I was hoping for. It tucks in smoothly, without too much "blousing", but it also hangs easily over jeans.
The only nuance I'd note is that the blue of my shirt has distinct yellow/grey undertones. It is not a clear-blue chambray color. Some people may like this more or less. Or, perhaps, the shirts themselves vary a bit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Authentic Medium Indigo very refined!
I already wrote a review for this style shirt in a different fabric/colour. I loved the original shirt, in the navy indigo glenn plaid but I gave it a 4star rating. I will revise for both shirts with a 5 star rating.
I just added the medium indigo to my collection. As the description says, this is indeed a refined take in a work-wear fabric.
I love this shirt, and for many of the reasons that others found fault. The cut is superb--lean and just long enough. Since I am a smaller version of a lean and long figure with a few delicate curves, this shirt suits me perfectly. I am a true 0 as opposed to a vanity 0. Hence, I am purchasing signature items that I already know will fit me.
If you are slender, you will really love this rendition of a chambray shirt. It is much nicer than the offerings of other sportswear lines that make a big deal out of their chambray shirts. I have one of those too, in a vanity size 00.
As for the tightness of the collar, which was my reason for deducting one star, after wearing it buttoned, which I rarely do it does ease up.
For info purposes, again I am 5'4" and 100 pounds. I have a 32B and square shoulders with a small waist 23.5"-24"
If you are built as I am, regardless of your size, do not miss the opportunity to get this shirt, while they still have your size.

Rated 2 out of 5 by lainsie a shirt for skinny girls
I ordered this blouse two sizes larger than my normal size....having reviewed all the comments and information on the shirt description....but it was still too snug. Like other reviewers I am really disappointed to have to return the shirt as the fabric is exactly what I wanted.

Rated 2 out of 5 by RMMNyc Lovely shirt, runs WAY small
Very sad to have to return this shirt; the fabric is so nice and soft and I loved the pattern, but it runs EXTREMELY narrow. I have a DD bust and am a size 14; the size 16 did not even come close to buttoning. Wish Signature would cut these shirts a bit more generously, as they're totally nice otherwise, but this isn't a shirt for a curvy girl, and I'd recommend anyone with a sizeable bust order at least two sizes up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Authentic nearly perfect but . . .
I had this shirt on my wish list for a while. I purchased it to go with my Signature sable skinny jeans. However, when I took it out of the bag there was a ticket attached with a warning that colour( indigo dyes) might transfer. I decided to wait until I washed it by hand in cold water with white vinegar before I wore it as planned. Instead I wore it with blue jeans and underneath a chocolate coloured cashmere pullover from my own wardrobe.
This is a beautiful high quality shirt. I am particularly partial to Glenn plaid and to navy blue, which is my favourite colour for garments.The material is substantial. Bean did a good job in matching the plaids--a huge bugaboo for me. I hate unmatched plaids I think it diminishes the perceived quality of a garment. I purchased my regular size, which is 0. The shirt is slim but not fitted, just as the description tells you. On my slender frame it borders on slightly relaxed. My only problem with the shirt is the top button which when buttoned is not comfortable. I have a slender neck? This is not a big enough issue for me to return it, as I would never button it anyhow. I prefer to wear a neckerchief casually knotted in the open neck in colder weather, as a type of ascot, although not as formal. Hence I did not give the item 5 stars. I think I am pretty standard in my sizing, and I really appreciate that Bean Signature does not use vanity sizing, as many competitors do! I abhor vanity sizing. I could go on, but I will get off my soap box before I get myself into trouble;-).
I see that what remains in this item is only the 0. For information purposes I am a smidge under 5'4" and weigh a smidge under 100. I have a petite well-proportioned frame. I am neither short- waisted nor long-waisted. On me the shirt looks great un-tucked poking out beneath a sweater.
I know for a fact there are scant few left in the 0, so if you are at all inclined now is the time to charge and send!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LoveArt love this shirt !!!
I am 5 foot tall and wear between size 2-4. I have broad shoulders and am flat chested. Size 4 fits me perfectly, I mean, absolutely perfect everywhere including the length. It is very flattering. It's a more fitted style, but there is a good room for movement. I just ordered my second one in the same color, weathered brick. Great on its own or layered. This brick color goes especially pretty with Signure ponte knit blazer in raison I purchased recently. Great sale price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by migotogirl Beautiful and classic
This is in reference to the plaid style. Fits me well, like the model pictured. The shirt is long for tucking in on my 5'2" frame , but it's manageable. It also looks great worn unbuttoned with a white v-neck tee. I have received admiring compliments, and I enjoy the comfort of the shirt as well. Love the menswear look. Quality product as well. I ordered the smallest size and weigh about 105, with few curves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by UpstateWallace Classy and Comfortable
I usually wear size 10 but read previous reviews and ordered 12. Fits very well; slim yet not tight. Nice weight for late fall wear. Classy dark color...never could wear darks well until gray-silver started creeping into my hair. Now the contrast looks sharp. The only challenge is ironing...the shirt runs heavy on wrinkles even from the dryer. Steam iron required and slow, patient ironing necessary, but worth it for a great looking and wearing shirt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LJMAMA Hip, fits great
Love this shirt so much I'm writing a review for the first time. I only wish it also came in black. Wore it to work and felt stylish, urban, and comfortable. The fit is great, I wear a DD and usually have to add an extra hidden button to avoid peek-a-boo bra, but not with this one. A roomy, yet tailored size 6.

Rated 4 out of 5 by djm100 Order up ... at least one size
I typically wear size 8, but upon suggestions in reviews, I ordered a 10. . Cut very small - even the shoulders were snug - which rarely if ever happens. Not sure about shrinkage, so sending it back and getting a size 12. Hope it fits well because I really like the shirt.
