Women's Plus Size Supima Oxford Back Pleat Buttondown Tunic
Love this shirt!
Love this shirt so much I have to buy another. Would have preferred it without the tucks in back, which cause the feeling of something pulling slightly, and without the blue striped lining at the collar and cuffs. But It is a nice weight, thick enough to wear without a camisole. I ordered about 3-4 of LE's oxford shirts in various styles and this one was the keeper because of its nice fabric and the length. If you prefer something more formal, then look for one of their perma pressed fabrics, but I like the soft casual feel of this one. Long enough to wear over skinny jeans, great for layering or just by itself. I find myself waiting for it to come out of the wash so I finally had to break down and buy a second. I have washed multiple times and it still fits great, no shrinkage that I have noticed. I machine wash, hang dry, and then toss in the dryer for 10 minutes to fluff it up.

A "Man's style" shirt!
When I first put this on to wear on a Saturday, my husband actually asked me if I was wearing one of his shirts! He is observant, and he noticed this shirt right away, probably because its rare to see me in a button-down style top. (I usually wear tees, pullovers, tunics, and tanks, in solids and in patterns too). After I set him straight, I did enjoy wearing it. I threw on a blue cardigan too and it paired nicely.
Excellent quality and truly looks like your boyfriend's or hubby's shirt, right down to the small striping on the inside of the button-down collar. There also striping inside the cuff-pleat. Its a casual shirt to be sure. Cotton Oxford is soft and feels good.
The thing that differentiates this shirt from any MAN's shirt is the back detail/pleat. Like the quality and the small "back- pleat" is slimming! The shirt also comes in SUPIMA fabric in white and a color called "pansy stripe" which looks interesting, and perhaps a bit more feminine. I suspect the fabric is not as "thick" feeling as the Oxford fabric is. I am considering the Supima shirt because I doubt my hubby will mistake it for one of HIS ! LOL !

Beautifully constructed cotton, good fit, softly comfortable. Will need to be startched and ironed if a crisp appearance is desired. I think the quality will give very good service and I plan to order another.

I liked the length and fit.
I liked the length on this shirt. It is not long enough for a tuniic but it's a better length than the regular shirts for wearing untucked. It would have been nice in the no-iron fabric but I can live with that because I liked the fit. Would love more colors. I didn't think it was boxy. the darts in the back gave it shape.

Great tutu potential for apple-shaped plus sizes.
I wanted this shirt to work but it has a high scoop on the side seam that makes both back and front angle away from the body on an apple shaped body. It's fine if you are looking to have a peplum in front and in back, but the side profile made me think I should sign up to take a ballet class.

Looks Much Better in the Picture!
I was really disappointed by this shirt. Unlike the picture, on me the shirt was just boxy and shapeless and it was too short to be considered a tunic shirt. According to the size chart the 0X should have fit me perfectly but it didn't. There are no smaller sizes to see if that would have made a difference and even if there were that still wouldn't have changed the length problem.
