Rated 4 out of 5 by AllisonbytheSea Great shirt, but obey washing instructions
I really liked the shape and colors - I bought blue and light gray - and they fit really nicely too. They're a bit drapey, but fit pretty slim, so not too blousey. Basically, the way I like to wear polos. The shorter dolman sleeve is a nice update from regular old polos, too.
But...when the washing label says cold, wash cold! I put the gray one in on the warm/cold setting and it came out about 2 sizes smaller than it went in!! I then made sure the load containing the blue one was on cold/cold and it appears to not have shrunk much, if at all. The label says you can machine dry them, but I'm not taking any chances, so I'll find out if the fit changed once the shirt air dries.
I'm going to buy another grey one and only Dryel or wash it on the delicate setting going forward...

Rated 5 out of 5 by SkiingEnthusiast Very nice!
Great colors and silky fabric. I. Bought every color. It does run long. Almost too long for a petite person which gives a boxy look. I tie the shirts at the waist to give a fitted look.

Rated 3 out of 5 by pari good style but quality is a question.
-I like the look and how it feels.
-The color is little different than online, still beautiful.
-the shirt is too long for petite people ( 5 feet and below).
-the material is too thin. (So I have to use tank top inside)
- the material is not cotton.
But most of all, after wearing it for only two hours it started to shed in little balls. So I'm not yet sure if I want to keep it or not.
please llbean, bring it in cotton. and keep the petite people in mind.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chicstyleplus Great But I have the Dress in the smae material..
This blouse is wonderful. great fabric, size was perfect, small, and the cut as well. .Sleeves are cut well and look great BUT I have this fabric in a dress already that I ordered a month ago! There was no reason to keep this identical fabric in both a dress and a shirt...Too bad really but I would be duplicating myself I thought...and I must be sensible with my money as I pay duty and taxes and the blouse became an expensive item!! My take, for what it is worth but both items are very well made and very stylish..and I liked them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by cmr71 Beautiful shirt- be aware of Dolman style sleeve
The shirt's fabric was very nice and the blouse fit well, but the shirt has a Dolman style sleeve rather than a traditional cap sleeve. I am petite and small in the bust, and felt the sleeve created a lot of extra fabric under my arms and in the chest area. I ended up returning the shirt due to the cut.
I wish the garment description had included the sleeve details. It only states "cap sleeves", but this certainly wasn't a traditional cap style.

This is a great shirt: draped well, styled nicely, fit better than the photo. And I wish I could have kept it. The color was not flattering on me, but I'm hoping enough people liked it as well as I did so Bean will keep the style and add warm colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by squarefootgardner Very classy shirt
This is a very classy shirt. It has a lovely, smooth hand and a rich color. As you can see if you look carefully, it has a button at the neck, but the 'three button' polo placard is hidden. It fits to size and is very flattering. Although the fabric feels silky, it is heavy enough to leave a very smooth silhouette.
My computer makes this color look dark pink. It is not - it's a deep cranberry red, as described and as shown in the catalog. The white dots are not WHITE, but have a subtle pinkish/reddish color to them. My husband says this blouse is bright, but I wore it with a dark blue sweater and a pair of teal tencel pants and thought it looked subtle and very sophisticated. I am going to wear it to a conference next week - I expect it to travel beautifully.
