Women's Long Sleeve Pattern Supima No Iron Shirt
Too short overall
I am 5'9" and 135 lbs and ordered two of these in size 2. The sleeves and the body of the shirt were both too short. Fit fine around the waist and chest. These are going back and being exchanged for size 4. Then they are going to the tailor to get them taken in at the waist/chest. Hope it's all worth it.

I love this blouse.
Great blouse. Fits great... arm length on blouses is always a little long for me.

Nice shirt, nice tayloring, great color (violet pink stripe).
This is a nice shirt with a flattering fit. I ordered a 14W which was true to size but a bit more fitted in the shoulders than I would like. I'm keeping the shirt because it's still comfortable enough to wear at work all day.

I collect these!
I never wore blouses until found these. I have big "girls" and blouses never fit my 34Fs properly. The tailoring on these shirts gives me a great fit without overwhelming my 5'3" frame. I use a small wardrobe steamer to smooth the button placket and collar a bit but that is it for care. Truly wash and wear! The colors and patterns always offer a new pop to put under my cashmere sweaters in the cold months and on their own the rest of the time. The finishing details also look like a much costlier shirt. Love the narrow ribbon sewn to the inside cuffs.

Lovely pattern--but too small
I bought this blouse in "Mazarine Blue Stripe," size 18 Tall, hoping it would fit well and I could order more prints. It's too short and too tight in the bust and hips (but long in the arms and big in the cuffs). The print is gorgeous and the fabric is crisp and thick, but I'm going to have to send it back because it's awfully snug and I'm not sure it's long enough to stay tucked in reliably.
I'm only 5'9", though with a relatively long torso and longish arms, so I'm guessing it would be quite short on a really tall woman. The shirt hem hits me at the upper hip, not mid-hip. I'd have preferred low hip, for what that's worth. The cuffs are wide enough that I'd have needed to move the buttons (wish there were two buttons to make it easier to fit). The bust is snug though not gaping, and I suspect I could make it work with a different bra, but it is much too clingy in the hips and there's nothing to do for that. It is fine in the shoulders and waist. I have other tops from Land's End in an 18 Tall, so it seems like this one is just snugger than usual. If there were a size 20 Tall I'd order that instead but I guess I'm out of luck, as the Plus version would be much too short.

Looks great in catalog....but
This shirt is an odd shape. See the model in the navy with pink dots and note the "batwing" type sleeve then tapered. Perhaps it is only the navy one? They call it crisp? I call it crunchy and stiff!! I agree with an earlier reviewer in that the button holes are so tight, had to pull it over my head to see the fit. Cant imagine having to dress in a hurry! And please LA, just because we are larger doesnt mean we have gorilla length arms. All companies seem to do this.

What did you mess these up?
I have been purchasing this shirt in various colors/prints for a few years & loved it. It's my workday "uniform" along with a pair of black or navy trousers. I just purchased 2 more after not buying any for probably 6 months, and these are not the same shirts! The material is...for a lack of a better word....weird! It is thinner and kind of sticky on my skin and my bra, if that makes any sense. I rated this as "fair" because maybe if I was not aware of the much higher quality these used to be I would have a different opinion. They are okay to wear so I won't return them, but I don't love them. For this price, I should love them. I won't be buying them any more :( bummer....

I have an hourglass figure and this traditional cut did nothing for me. It is boxy and not very feminine.

I agree: Runs at least two sizes too small
First off, let me say the shirt itself is nicely cut and seems well-made. But if you're at all busty or wide through the arms and shoulders, you might need to go up at least two sizes.
I am usually a solid 20W, but sometimes need a 22W for a tailored, button up shirt. I ordered both sizes to see which fit best. What a disappointment! I couldn't come close to closing the 20W, and was able to get the 22W to "touch" at the seams, but buttoning is out of the question. The arm length was good, but even unbuttoned it was very tight through the upper arms and shoulders. I'll be returning both in exchange for a 24W AND a 26W--just in case.
Speaking of buttons, these buttons seems very small to me and the holes were tight. The shirt was a bit difficult to unbutton out of the package. I can't say how easy it is to button up, since that wasn't an option in my normal sizes.
