Before washing, this shirt fit as I expected the marked size to fit. After washing it was slightly snug, but as I plan to wear it under other clothing, it is not critical. If I planned to wear it alone, it would be too snug.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by DDinOK Not a good fit at the wrist
The sleeves taper at the wrist and is not comfortable. I have long arms, so when I reach for something, the shirt sleeve stops mid-way up my arm. If they would make the opening wider, it would be a great shirt.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by bernice I like the price.
I have had 3 other shirts like this. I like to wear them under t-shirts or under my scrub shirts I wear to work. They are comfortable but I had to order 1 size larger than I usually do to allow for shhrinkage.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Anonymous Troubling changes in sizing and quality
In addition to this style, I ordered some "featherweights" in extra small, and they were truly extra small --- only about 30 inches at the chest. But THESE, oh dear, the opposite problem. With no extra small available , I ordered size SMALL. And in fact, if sizing was standard across models, that would have been fine. I have ordered this top, or a very similar precursor style, in the past in the "small" size, and have been very pleased. The prior version was fitted at the waist (trim but not binding), right (for me at least) at the shoulder, in sleeve length, and also at the bust. The fabric was a sturdy but soft cotton knit. This version, produced in a different country, which fact may or may not pertain to the issues at hand, is cut from a coarser cotton fabric. It has lost any pretensions of a fitted waist: if anything, it now is wider at the waist than just below the sleeve (ie the chest). The waist (the WAIST !!) is a full 36 inches (or 18 inches measured flat) !!!! This is at least 6 inches larger than the former version !!!!. It is also about 1 1/2 inches wider from neck to shoulder seam than the prior version -- which means 3 plus inches total. As someone else commented, the sleeves are also longer -- at least an inch as I recall. If the original version fit you, this assuredly will NOT. ARGGH. It used to be just what I needed -- soft, simple and well fitted, terrific with jeans or under a suit with pearls. NOT now. Okay for working in the garden I guess, but for that I reserve my old, worn out clothes.
