Perfect for Florida
I am glad that I ordered this shirt. I did order a size down because of the other reviews and was a little worried but I, but it worked out. The shirt still has room and the sleeves were long enough... I love the light weight and it doesn't have an artificial fabric feel that so many of the other type of sun protective clothing out there has.... I think I will get a lot of use out of this shirt!! I bought the raspberry and I love the color pink

Awesome shirt
I now own five of these and I have to say that it seems like this year's finally have a longer sleeve length! (I'm 5'7" with broad shoulders and long arms). Previous ones I've ordered were too short in the sleeves - not a big deal since I tend to always roll them up, but still rather silly for a sun-protective garment. Yes, it's a "big" shirt, so order down a size if you don't want it super baggy. That's what I do and I find it nice and roomy and comfortable to wear another shirt beneath if needed. Since most ladies' blouses "gape" open on me I really like the fit of these. I love the long length - great with leggings or capris in summer and though I don't use it as one, it would be great as a beach cover up.

Cover-up
I received my order today, and with all the reviews...everything fits, so thanks!! Cover up is nice, kind of prefer the light mint looking one, however I ordered turquoise and it is bright and nice. It will pair nicely with the white active pants I ordered in PS, and they fall perfectly.

Definitely order one size down
I usually wear 12/14 so I ordered a Med. It was HUGE. Hoping the small is better. Disappointed I have to pay for postage to exchange.

Great shirt!
Just received this shirt in the mist color which is a light mint green. Beautiful. I am a consistent size 14 at 5'7" and 165 Lbs. Reading the reviews I decided to order the size Small. The fit is ample but not huge. Perfect for gardening and outdoor activities. It is very well made and the material is light, but not see through. Order at least one size down.

Pretty, extremely oversized
I'm glad I read Down The Shore's review before I ordered. I normally wear an XL top (14-16), so I ordered a Medium, based on reviews. It's quite large all around (though not oversized in length). Soft fabric, pretty color (I ordered turquoise, which I believe is the color in their picture of the shirt; they don't state.) I'm tempted to order another since it feels good & is attractive, but I think I'll go with a small next time. (I don't think I've EVER worn a small in anything!) In my same first order, I ordered the sleeveless stretch top in a large (the largest that they offer) and it was too small. The sizing of their clothing is very inconsistent.

GREAT shirt for just about everything!
Ordered my first shirt a year or so ago in white. Am usually a size 8-10 w/large bust, but took review advice & got the Small. It's a perfect fit & still oversized! Use it daily for dog-walking in the hot stifling sun. It's perfect to wear by itself - & even without a bra when it's miserably hot - because the fabric is NOT thin, has a pocket & is again, BIG! Arm vents also keep me cool. It's long enough to be a swimsuit coverup & is a staple for vacations. It's had a lot of use & was beginning to discolor a bit due to use w/sunscreen. Just bought another white one for other times than dog-walking. When the first one totally wears out, will make it my painting & glass fusing shirt. Expensive but not really, considering the sun protection it offers!

Beautiful, but HUGE
This top has great styling, and the color, Mist, is a lovely mint green. Be advised, that the sizing is incredibly generous. I normally wear a misses XL top,or size 14-16, so I ordered a size M, based on the reviews that the top was very generous. When I received it, I was disappointed by the enormity of the size M. Conservatively estimating it as a women's XXL may be underestimating it. I'm going to re-order a size S and hope for the best.

Great shirt!
This was my first time buying these shirts and I am very happy with both shirts in bought however.... I am tall with longer than average arms & legs. Neither shirt has arms long enough for me, they need to be about 3 inches longer to come to my wrist. Other than that the shirts are great.

My Favorite All-Time Shirt
I bought this shirt to wear on vacation with a matching sun hat several years back. Lost the hat to the sea during sea-fishing trip and have mourned the loss ever since. I continued to wear the shirt during hot days to stay cool. One day I was so hot painting that I put on the shirt to keep cool thinking that I would not get any paint on it. Bad decision - I got paint on it. I was so comfortable in the shirt while painting that I decided to designate it as my painting shirt even though it was an awful expensive painting shirt. These shirts are now my only "Painting Shirts"! Gone are the Goodwill Painting Shirts that I collected and wore everyday. I paint furniture and I am also a Watercolorist. I have room enough to move in this shirt, the ventilation in the arm allows for my body to breathe, and the material is light and not bulky. I almost always roll the sleeves and because the material is so light weight the roll stays put and does not interfere with my painting. Also the shirt is long enough that it covers any clothes that I might wear underneath-A big plus! However, I often wear only a bra underneath which does not show through the light material. Now through the years, I have ordered 5 of these shirts. I have two designated as painting shirts and the rest I wear as tunics. They are my favorite shirts of all time. The material is so wonderful that they will last forever and they are well tailored. I wish they made them in more colors for 2x size (I want a peach one) and maybe a 3x size. As time goes by, the 2x is getting a little tight. You would laugh if you could see what my painting shirts look like. They are covered with paint of all colors but not one tear! All my friends and family know not to mess with my painting shirts. My clean shirts that I use as tunics are proudly hung in my closet and earrings to match in my jewelry box.
