Women's Long Sleeve Stretch Broadcloth Blouse
Length has changed
I have two three quarter sleeve shirts in this fabric that I bought a couple of years ago, and they are the most comfortable shirts I own. Since I've gained some weight, they are the shirts that still fit me best. So I ordered some more, in long and in three quarter sleeves, but was dismayed to find that the new ones are two inches longer, which hit me at a wider part of my hips, and less roomy around the bottom (vents are shorter). So after struggling about what to do, I've reluctantly decided to send them back. Wearing these shirts tucked in makes me look fat, while wearing them untucked is impossible.
I've discovered the PDF for product dimensions and have checked out other shirts, especially some old favorites. All of them have been lengthened. I eventually settled on some tunics, which are still just a little tight around the bottom, but they fit better than anything else I've tried. Please, Land's End, explain why you have made this change. I won't be buying any shirts here in the future as a result.

Not no iron.
The fit is OK, but the fabric is not as nice as your previous year's no iron shirts. The white shirt has a yellow tinge, and it definitely is not no iron.

Nice dependable shirt
I like this shirt, it is nice material, sturdy and requires just a bit of ironing...

The shirt was a great fit, very comfortable and reasonably priced.
This shirt is just the right fit. And very comfortable to work in, especially if you work in retail.

Fits well according to size. Material feels good on and doesn't wrinkle when removed promptly from low heat dryer. Is a good shirt for work or casual.

Finally, a blouse cut for a full-busted woman.
I wear a size 8 blouse, but have a hard time finding styles that the buttons don't strain at the bust. I'm 5'6", 136 pounds and wear a 34DD bra. This blouse is roomy and comfortable and I like the slight stretch. The straight hem gives the option to wear it untucked too. Beware that some ironing is needed after washing.

For me, this blouse was too "fitted." I'm a senior that prefers to wear loose-fitting clothing to hide what I would rather others not see. ;-)
However, there is nothing wrong with the blouse. The material feels good against your skin and seems to be good quality. Although I returned it, I do recommend it overall.

Was extremely wrinkled by the time I got to work
I followed other reviewers' advice and got a size 10 instead of a 12. It seemed like a good idea since I have had to go up to a 12 in other LE button downs. I have an athletic shape with broader shoulders and muscular arms. Once received though, I probably could have gotten a 10 since the 12 feels a bit big in the mid-section. I decided to keep it anyway since it wasn't outrageously big. The problem is it wrinkled within an hour of wear. I steamed it in the morning and dressed for work. By the time I got there, it was a wrinkled mess. I was actually embarassed by how wrinkled it was! I ordered the coral pink color - don't know if that makes a difference in how the fabirc performs.

Nice shirt, very professional
I wore this shirt today to the office. I didn't need to iron it this morning, nor did it wrinkle all day. I have it in Loganbeery, beautiful color. I usually wear a 24W, I ordered a 26W to be on the safe side and guess what? It fits. So to my plus size ladies, size up. I'm 5'11, I have a broad back and heavy arms. Oh by the way, I wore a undershirt underneath. I will buy more colors when it goes on sale.

nice fit and fabric, runs small
I bought several different Land's End blouses to try, and this is the one I kept. First, I admit to being a size 24 or 26. This one I needed a 28, which is humiliating, but it looks nice. There are other, high-end stores that I shop at where a 24 is fine. At Lands end, the tees, polos and sweaters all run truer to size (a 3x, which is 24-26, fits fine). Anyway, this required a 28. It's sleeves run surprisingly long, which for me is a blessing as I'm almost 6' tall. They would most certainly be too long on someone 5'6". It has nice shaping with the darts and falls well. It is well proportioned, comfortable and flattering. The fabric is not too thin, ie certainly don't need anything under it and it doesn't show the outline or seams on the bra. The fabric is smooth and the stretch makes it very comfortable. I gave it 4 stars rather than 5 only as a warning that with all Lands Ends blouses, they run a full size smaller than their knits.
