Women's Short Sleeve French Cuff Stretch Blouse
The fabric is a nice weight for summer, and the length and covered placket make it look professional even while untucked, which is how I like to wear my shirts. I will be wearing a lab coat over this blouse, so I think the French cuffs will stick out too much, but the buttons can be adjusted so the cuff is flatter, and that should work better under another layer.

For a basic short sleeve shirt, this has a bit of detail on the sleeve that is perfect. I wouldn't suggest trying to wear this under a cardigan, but alone is a nice work shirt.

Great to wear to work and comfortable.
Fits very nicely, good quality. I wear it to work where I need to move around a lot and its very comfortable. Washes nicely.

Good fit. Nice fabric. Pretty colors.
I originally ordered the short sleeve blouse with the rounded, ?Peter Pan? collar and ruching at the shoulders. Although cute, I found that blouse to be too long (more like a tunic length) and the ruching accentuated my natural "puffiness," so I returned them for these. These I like very much. The fabric is soft and feels good. They are more fitted, so I don't look too poofy in spite of my 24W size. And, they are not too long. Finally I love the covered button placket. Since Lands' End now insists on using white buttons for everything (which I hate and typically replace), it's nice to just have them hidden. All in all I'm very happy with these and glad I got three colors. Would love a teal or a green too.

Nice looking & comfy too!
I wanted some more shirts for work that look nice, but are comfortable too. The hidden front buttons and french cuff are nice touches. I love the stretchiness and the fit of this shirt. It is lightweight and does not constrict in the shoulders and sleeves like a lot of women's shirts do. I like the color choices as well. I got 2 and will probably get more!

Love this shirt!
This shirt is a great wardrobe staple for office wear. The collar and cuffs add a professional look and the fit is very comfortable while looking dressy. I bought two colors and wish there were more that would go with my color palette. The fact that it's machine washable is a plus, although I do remove the little cuff buttons from the sleeves first so I don't lose them in the washer.

Clergy wear with tailoring flaw
When I first got it, it looked like a blouse for a clergy because the buttons were hidden, just leave the white cardboard collar in there. But when I put in on, it felt well fitted. I would have gotten a different color but it was my fault for not thinking through it. Oh, the underarms fitting is not good because the shirt will be lifted up in a weird way when arms are lifted: a tailoring flaw.

Too short & boxy
I ordered two of these, expecting them to be the perfect summer work shirt. However, after trying them on, they're shorter than I expected. This made me look dumpy and wider. There's not really any true darting, so the shirt fits very boxy. I also expected the buttons on the cuffs to be a little nicer. There's something unappealing about the placket that hides the buttons down the front as well (maybe too wide?). The regular short-sleeved button downs (without the French cuff) are a much better fit.

This blouse is nice and well made. However, it doesn't really have much shape. I am a size 3X and it fits ok. Unfortunately it is just a shirt. no shaping at the back or front. It is just ok. Not sure if I will keep it or return it. Just arrived yesterday.

I love this blouse. It the fit is just right - not baggy at all but slimming without being tight. The fabric is soft and elegant. Sleeves not to tight at cuff and the hidden placket buttons a nice feature. I will order in more colors.
