Rated 1 out of 5 by cmfhawkins Definitely not No Iron
Unless you want to look like you slept in this it is not No Iron. It will take starch and 10 minutes to get this wearable. I also wish the fit were more feminine, slightly boxy. I have washed it so I can't return, but I regret buying it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CallOfKthalia Perfect work shirt
These shirts are a perfect work solution. They are classic. They are well-made. They are easy!
I am not certain how my use/care scenario differs from the other purchasers that had shirts which weren't behaving in a no-iron way for them, but for me these shirts are fantastic!
First thing, I washed the shirts. I usually always wash everything but jeans and towels in cold delicate cycles. Clothes usually just don't get dirty enough for more. Then I use medium to low heat settings. With these shirts I used a medium permanent press heat. I did let them dry the whole way the first time but have also done the "tumble a little - hang dry the rest" method to good effect. This is probably even better for the fabric when you have the time/space to dry this way. This is my typical washing routine which keeps my clothes' fabric nicer for longer, prevents shrinking and I've noticed usually creates fewer wrinkles even when I am not on the ball to pull the items from the dryer. These methods worked great with these shirts.
The shirts look nice from the dryer. Furthermore, they also seem to really resist wrinkles while wearing them. My work has the potential to be extremely hard on clothing not only with general wear and tear, but also because I am moving around a ton! I get hot, which could cause wrinkles particularly combined with me moving about so much. Throughout the day these shirts have stayed crisp, nice and professional-looking in an environment where they could easily wilt to look frumpy and disheveled. Also, the 3/4 sleeves mean I don't have to push my sleeves up to keep the cuffs out of my work. They have a pretty, slightly narrower 3/4 cuff with a different button set-up. Again, classic but slightly delicate-- pretty!
For fit reference: I am 5'6", 150 lbs, 36C and I chose the 12 regular. I wanted room to move around while staying covered (i.e. no puckering between buttons at the bust-line while twisting and turning!). This size is a teeny-tiny bit full on me but does not look "baggy", fits at the shoulders, and meets my needs for space to move.
Bottom line: Quality made. Pleasingly easy-care. Look great. Love them! I also will strongly consider purchasing others in non-work sanctioned colors because these really are fantastic shirts that are easy but look snappy. :-)

Rated 1 out of 5 by everything Very disappointed.
I bought three shirts, happy to think of no-ironing. I washed all three, and they are very wrinkled. I then re-washed just to be sure I had followed laundry guidance, and they are still very wrinkled. Even with ironing, they do not get a crisp look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by anotherTeri I love this shirt!
It is great by itself because of the cute shape and 3/4 length sleeves with a sweet pattern..gray lines with small dots. It is also terrific under sweaters...quite pretty!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Beach10 NOT no iron!
This shirt is a big disappointment. The fabric is too sheer and is a bit see through.
It is not a no iron fabric at all. The blouse looks like it has been slept in right from a warm dryer. Going back.

i didn't check that there's no spandex...so it feels like a bed sheet....no shape or anything...and yes, you MUST iron after washing...i wasn't crazy about it...so i'm not wearing it again.

I love the lavender color but it is most definitely not a No Iron shirt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Oskarmom my 1st type buying this type of LE product and I LOVE IT
I am a LONG time LE customer normally buying their dresses. However, since they have gotten rid of their wrap dress (PLEASE PLEASE bring back the standard wrap dress in cotton blend) I decided to try their shirts. Boy am I glad I did. I love 3/4 lenght and these shirts are such nice cotton, and the colors are vibrant. I bought 3 of these. They fit great and true to size. My clients even complimented me on them. Highly recommend. Seem to wash well too and keep color

by Spikeyv Not really no-iron
It is not really no-iron - I have a lot of no-iron shirts and I know how to launder them to keep them that way. This one never looks really fresh and has to be touched up. It is also a little skimpy in the bust and the sleeves.
