Women's Long Sleeve No Iron Tunic Top
NOT at all flattering! And Wrinkles!
I really wanted this tunic to work since I love crisp white shirts...but the fit is just super unflattering, and the material reminded me of cheap bed linens...it actually wrinkled right away despite the "no iron" description. The sleeves are extra long and the fit is tight across the shoulders and the back pushes out (so, from a profile view, it looks like you're carrying a white turtle shell on your back!). The fit across the hips is too narrow, again making the overall look not flattering at all. Plus, the material IS see-through - so there would be no wearing this tunic by itself. Sadly, I cannot recommend this tunic at all - even if it does eventually go on sale.

fit was smaller than expected but wearable; followed the washing directions and still had to iron it
The good new is that it didn't shrink. The bad news was that I had to iron it. Worst no iron fabric yet. I was surprised as other Lands End no iron shirts were much better quality.

Fits very tight across the shoulders - order up a size
I love the look of this shirt but you would definitely be best advised to order up a size. I am 6ft tall and weigh 155 lbs and am classically pear shaped with narrow shoulders and broader hips. I originally ordered 8T (I need a 6T in some Lands End clothing). It looked great but was so tight across my shoulders I struggled to get it off over my head! I replaced it with a 10T and although it fits better it is still a little snug across the shoulders. I am keeping it because I love the look

I loved the idea and length but it was cut strangely... Too wide at the hips... Not tailored enough for me. Also, I bought it in white and it was too see through.

The perfect white versatile Oxford shirt
Love this top! Fit is perfect, solves the problem with big busted women with the buttons stopping at above the cleavage line. Can be dressed up or down..

This shirt has great fabric, soft and smooth. Very roomy. Sleeves a bit long, but can be rolled up. The shirt is very plain-looking and a little sheer (I would wear a tank under it, and that would make it too hot). For the price, I wanted something really cute that I could wear on its own; was returned.

Glad I tried this on in store before ordering. Way too small through shoulders and upper arms. At 5'6 and 130lbs (size 6 or 8) I had already sized up to an 8 and didn't want to size up again. So disappointed!

Has a strange fit....not flattering!
I liked the fabric, but two things.....I am an average build and this fits tightly across the upper back. it also bunches up when walking. There is a problem with the pattern used to make it, I think. Also, you must take it off over the head, and the way it's constructed, it is very hard to do. You could very easily get makeup on the collar when trying to pull it off! Just not a good fit and design. Fabric good though!
Sad cause I was really looking forward to it and got one in a plaid as well!

Glad I read the reviews before buying
I said to myself when I ordered it, let's go up TWO sizes and see what happens. Lo and behold the shirt fits with some room to spare over my excess of me. I ordinarily take an XL/18-20 but in this shirt, I went up to a 22. I am 5'8" with an hourglass shape. The fabric feels very good on, is nice and thin but substantial enough not to feel like it's going to tear if I move the wrong way. I have long arms and sleeves are never long enough, but these sleeves are where I like them to be (which is too long for most people, from what I understand from others' reviews). I laughed, though, when I took it out of the washer just now; it's humorous to think of it as being somehow 'wrinkle-free,' unless the drier performs a miracle. I have hung it up to let it air dry prior to Scotchguarding it, though, and I'm going to keep an eye on the de-wrinkling process. Maybe there's some alchemy that happens while it dries and the fabric self-smooths.... ? Anything is possible, but it's a good thing I don't care about wrinkles.

fits small; thin fabric
I usually wear a size 10, however, this shirt is just too tight in the shoulders and upper arms. I will exchange it for a size 12 and hope it is not too big. The fabric is too thin and see through. Even in a nude bra it is obvious where the bra ends and my skin begins. I will have to wear a tank under it to feel appropriately dressed to wear it out in public.
