Rated 4 out of 5Â by maplejohn Adorable but runs small
This is a super cute button-down from Odille. I bought the yellow. The material is pretty high quality and it doesn't seem like it wrinkles easily. The eyelit means it's a little see through but a camisole with take care of that. The main issue here is that it runs super super small. I range from a 6-10 in Anthro tops (5'7, 34C), but I had to size up to a 12 in this top, and it's still on the snug side. So definitely worth trying this on before buying!

Â by Kyasurin Bought all 3 colours.
It's hard for me to find buttondowns that fit well(it's also hard for me to find blazers that fit well). In a lot of cases the sleeves are not long enough because I'm 5'8" but wear a size 0(and often the smaller sizes are shorter in sleeve length and body length). Although the body length of this shirt would still be better for me if it were a little longer(although it's still alright), the sleeve length is perfect and since most buttondowns still don't fit me this well, I decided to get all 3 colours. At $29.95 each they were a great price(3 for less than the price of 1 at full price). It didn't come in a 4th colour did it?
Anyway, I am 5'8", 100 pounds, small chest(A size - about 32 inches around at widest point with bra on), 24 inch waist, 32 inch hips, really skinny arms, and purchased size 0. I can see how having pretty much any muscle mass on your arms would be likely enough to require you to size up at least 1 size. I suffered a bad arm injury as a child and it's hard for me to gain muscle mass, especially on my arms.
The shirt isn't either too tight on me or too loose and I am able to wear a lightweight shirt underneath(which allows for nice layering with another colour showing through the openings in the embroidery).
I think the quality is pretty good although I did take one star off because there was a small hole in the shoulder on one of the shirts I got near part of the embroidery and some of the embroidery was also unraveled. I managed to fix the unraveled embroidery with a needle myself but I'm not sure about the little hole. I might have to take it to a seamstress, although the hole isn't that obvious and isn't in a location where it's likely to get any bigger.....although it will be annoying to monitor it and keep checking it to make sure it's not getting bigger so maybe I should just have it fixed so I don't have to worry. Due to the busy pattern of the shirt I don't think any fix-ups to it will be very obvious to anyone.
All 3 colours are beautiful and different enough from each other. I love how the Copper colour has stripes down the material where as the Yellow one has a checkered pattern and the Green one(I'm guessing it was called Green online) has a checkered pattern but a smaller checkered pattern than the Yellow one. I'll attach a picture of the up-close patterns/colours of the 3 shirts, especially since I see that one of the colours is no longer available online at this time but you might still be able to locate it in a store location somewhere.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by LadyMurasaki Good Shirt at Sale Price
For reference, I am 5'5", 120 pounds, 34A, 26 inch waist. I am regularly a Small, sometimes XS and usually a size 2.
After reading the reviews, I ordered a size 4. And I'm glad I did. The shirt is snug in the shoulders and arms. It's a bit wider in my waist, but it looks okay, and I will simply tuck it in, wear it with a belt, or just go for a "looser" look when I wear it out. I would have given this shirt 5 stars if the waist had been more in keeping with the upper body. But as others have mentioned, the proportions seem to be a bit off.
All the same, the fabric is of very good quality--strong and of good quality. I got the yellow shirt, which is really more mustard than yellow. The color works on me, but for some people I could see how it might be muddy. I've seen the shirt in the store and the other colorways are also a bit muted. I don't mind this, but someone else might.
For the price, though, I think this is a good shirt. But it wasn't worth the original price--it doesn't have that kind of Thomas Pink precise tailoring that you would expect for nearly $100.
