Rated 5 out of 5 by CatWoman Fabulous shirt!
I got this recently in Spruce XS, and it is my favorite. It has a feminine cut and the fabric is lightweight. It washes and dries beautifully with no need to iron. It still looks crisp after washing. I am 5' 2", 110 pounds the the shirt is a perfect fit. Thank you L L Bean!

Rated 4 out of 5 by sweatersavvy Almost perfect easy care plaid shirt
I agree with the reviewer who said the dark plaids should have dark buttons on them rather than white buttons, which don't go with the autumnal look of this shirt. White buttons are good for the summery looking pastel plaid shirts. I received a dark plaid in the mail yesterday and am so pleased with the shirt, other than the buttons, I ordered another dark mini-check,and the pastel coral plaid, with which whit buttons are appropriate. I am 5'8" 165 lbs. and th extra large fits perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ldshopper lovely floral print
The floral print is beautiful. The petite XL fit my 165 pound, 38D bust and 5'1 frame really well. The 4% spandex provides for a customized fit. Great Spring shirt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by aqua Favorite Shirt Style!
These Easy-Care Stretch Poplin Shirts are my current favorite style. Fitted just enough to look feminine but not too tight. Length is good. Fabric is not too thin. The seams don't bunch up like some of their other stretch shirt styles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cin1295 LOVE THE "PINK FLORAL" SHIRT
I purchased this shirt in the "pink floral" color and I just LOVE IT> Many days I would stare at the colors and found out that they look just as pictured online. It is a soft shirt, next to the skin, but also has a crisp look that I prefer in a shirt.
Since it is hard to match colors online, I went and ordered a perfect match and was very happy to find that they look great together. Try this shirt with the Aqua Sea Marled Sweater and you you find a great match!! The green that really shows online in the shirt, really picks up the green in the sweater, for a perfect combination. I am so glad that I ordered them together.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Girl50 Not Quite What I Hoped
This shirt is lightweight and has pretty shape, but the background on the "dots" version isn't bright enough white to my eye to make it pop color-wise. To me, it looks more off white, which detracts from the "crisp" factor.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Girl50 Shapely, Pretty
This shirt has a feminine silhouette, is light weight, and the colors on the navy/white floral pop with contrast. Looks good untucked or tucked, alone or with cami or under a blazer or other layer. Very pleased.

Rated 4 out of 5 by evaska A Checkered Review of the Mini-Check Shirt
This is a mixed bag. I adore the prints, so much so that I got two of these. The similar mini-tartan shirts sold out in my size before I got my act together (Bean, please, get them back), but this is a close equivalent. The "wild aster" looks adorable under a classic navy blazer... and the "spruce" is a moody mixture of blues and greens. That said, the construction of this shirt is checkered, to say the least. It has some truly high-end elements, such as French side seams (which prevent puckering) and a lovely cobalt finishing on the cuffs and the inside of the collar. On the down side, the pattern is not matched between the back yoke and the rest of the shirt, which is very noticeable. Not a problem, if you wear the shirt under a blazer, but otherwise, the finicky will notice. Another problem are the awful, terminally ugly buttons, and the poor way they've been sewn on. Come on, bright white, plastic buttons on a darkish shirt? If you wear the collar open, the nasty white knots on the back of the two top buttons show like pox marks. I simply had to swap the buttons for some grey MOP ones. Suddenly, a transformation.... But this is a lot of effort to replace what Bean should have done to begin with.
