Rated 4 out of 5 by Evaska Love Surf Green
I'm not generally a fan of the big shirt, but the color surf green is so juicy that I had to have it. I will be wearing it as a cover up over a white tank or over a swimsuit in the summer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AZKathleen Beautiful linen shirt
This shirt is beautifully made. I bought it in the navy color, and it's a really pretty navy..... but, it's a good thing I went into the store.... The shirt runs really big. I am a size 8-10 normally, but needed a size small in this shirt (my usual is a med-large). It fits well, and will be getting the ivory colored one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by JBeim4 Love this shirt!
I mostly try to wait for sales, but this shirt really caught my eye and I had to try it on. I immediately loved it and bought one right away.
I haven't laundered it yet, but so far I'm not disappointed. It's going to be so versatile. Looks great at work and for casual outings also. It's shape is very forgiving so it hides any bulges yet doesn't look frumpy. It's not too heavy; I think the weight will be great for summer air conditioning. I'm seriously considering one in another color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LadyFlo Great shirt!
I love the fit on this shirt. I usually wear a Petite small but this works for me even in Extra Small. I love the color of this shirt...in fact, every time JJill comes out with this linen shirt in a new color I buy it!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by iloveboris Cool and comfortable but not sloppy
Love the cool, light fabric of this linen. Love the comfortable but not sloppy fit. Love the colors. Love that it launders nicely (do need to iron it a bit). Love it so much I bought another one in a different color!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mom10 Large fit, but nice drape
I have several of these shirts in various colors and love them! I am usually a medium top and small bottom, but I order this in a small. The small is shorter than I like and the sleeves are too short, so I figured out that a small TALL works best, though I am average height (5'5") It's still a full fit, but drapes very nicely and doesn't look sloppy. Great when modesty and comfort are priorities.

Rated 2 out of 5 by gggoodgggirl Disappointed - Plus size not cut from same pattern as Misses
I tried this on in the store in an XL and LOVED it, but it was snug and I needed to size up. I assumed that since I had already tried it on and liked it, I was safe in ordering a larger size online. Unfortunately I assumed wrong.
The women's sizes are NOT cut from the same pattern as the misses... meaning they are not simply the same shape but larger. This misses shirt I tried on had a nice shape to it, was slightly tapered and the waist and then flared out ever so slightly at the hips. The plus size version of this is cut completely straight, from armpit to hip, and basically made me look like I was wearing a box. In the 1X It fit on top and I could not button the bottom. In the 2X it was swimming on top and just barely buttoned at the bottom.
JJill - please note that plus size women can still be shapely and do desire the same styles as slimmer women. I truly wanted the EXACT same shirt I had tried on in the XL, but larger. Unfortunately, this is not offered.
I gave this item 2 stars because had the shirt been available in an appropriate size and cut, I probably would have kept it.
