Rated 4 out of 5Â by BostonBrit Almost perfect
I've been looking for a long white shirt to wear with skinny jeans and I think this is it, I love the pleated placket! This shirt is very fitted in the torso, which gives it a great shape as it then flares out nicely. I'd discard the belt, you don't need it to create shape. The fabric is quite thin and it has an aged feel to it, sort of like a child's Victorian nightgown! I think you'd need a cami or tank underneath if you were going to wear it with something dark on the bottom. It's definitely not as opaque as it appears in the model shot, you'd be able to see the pants through the shirt. I'm a 32DD and found the size 6 (my usual size) to be too small, it pulled across the chest. There was no 8 for me to try but I believe that would be the correct size in this shirt. Despite that I'd say it probably fits true to size...

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Costagirl Great design idea, poor quality cotton
I needed to purchase a white shirt on short notice and this design worked. I knew the cotton was lightweight but I didn't expect it to be so hard to maintain. Pressing it takes forever because it keeps re-wrinkling in places that have just been ironed. Also there are strings and tabs which are not explained online (inside the sleeves and at the bottom of the shirt). I didn't see these when I tried it on and with the thin fabric, they don't make sense.
Cotton used for men's shirts or even a linen/cotton blend (where the wrinkles look okay) would have been much better.
I still love Anthro but I doubt I"ll wear this shirt much - it's too casual for so much work!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Sheeba23 Perfect Casual Shirt
I recently purchased this shirt in white and absolutely love it!! It looks fantastic with leggings and boots as well as with my skinny jeans. I've received many compliments when I've worn this shirt as it is super flattering.
I had to go up one size as the top was a bit snug around my chest - from size 6 to size 8. However, that is typical for me when it comes to button down shirts as I'm a bit busty. The good thing is the ties on the shirt allow me to cinch it so it fits nicely around my waist. I plan to get this top in blue soon
