I loved the fit of the striped version I tried on - perfect around the shoulders, waist and bust and long enough to tuck securely into skirt or trousers (although there could be a bit more room around the hips...). But I really NEED this in white. Please get more stock in the smaller sizes!!!!

Overall Review: 3 out of 5 3 out of 5 3 out of 5 3 out of 5 3 out of 5 3/5 Too little fabric around the arms
I don't find myself particularly muscular or chubby in the arm area, but I find most Pepperberry shirts/tops too tight in the sleeves. Whilst the bust area is growing and the boob-waist problem is virtually non-existant anymore (thank you, Pepperberry!), the sleeves seem to stay exactly the same for most sizes. I tried 12 RC, 14C, 14 RC, and on top of that 16C, and the sleeves' widths were EXACTLY THE SAME. In the end I decided to leave the shirt behind, as the last one I bought with the same problem ripped on one arm She-Hulk style when I was lifting files at work. Could you sort the sleeve problem, Pepperberry? It's annoying when the shirt that fits so well on the boobs that it looks tailor-made seems so ill-fitting on the arms it seems to rip any second!

Overall Review: 4 out of 5 4 out of 5 4 out of 5 4 out of 5 4 out of 5 4/5 Great shirt
I've always struggled to find shirts that fit but was reluctant to buy the classic shirt previously as reviews said it was short in the body. True to the description, this really isn't the case with the new shirt and it fitted wonderfully. Great quality and really flattering. I measured myself and used the Pepperberry size chart to pick a size and it fitted really well. However, it's definitely worth looking at the size chart as the measurements Pepperberry use are bigger than conventional sizing.

I bought the black (same size) a few months ago for school, and had decided to also invest in the white. I would say the latter seems slightly larger/looser in size than the black, though it may be that this has shrunk from washing. The waist goes in more tightly too, which I think would exaggerate an hourglass figure. As with most shirts here, it sits just above my hips so high waist trousers/vest top are needed. Would love items suited to a longer torso!

Overall Review: 2 out of 5 2 out of 5 2 out of 5 2 out of 5 2 out of 5 2/5 Bad fabric, decent fit
While this shirt fits as promised, I was really disappointed in the overall product quality. It's 97% cotton / 3% elastane, but the fabric feels like the thinnest, cheapest cotton. It's quite rough to the hand. I purchased it in black and in white, and can see through the white. I have a similar shirt that was about the same price, 98% cotton / 2% spandex. While that shirt doesn't fit me as well, it's pleasantly smooth to the touch and not see-through; I suspect that brand uses a longer fiber cotton. For this price, I wish Pepperberry would make a higher quality shirt.

Based on other reviews, I ordered this sight unseen from the website. I was desperate for a work wear shirt that didn't gap, pucker, or bulge. The fit was perfect. As mentioned in other reviews, it does have a slightly high waist, so I pair it with high waisted skirts. Thanks Pepperberry!

Overall Review: 5 out of 5 5 out of 5 5 out of 5 5 out of 5 5 out of 5 5/5 Great wardrobe staple
I ordered this shirt in the 12RC in black and the 12SC in white. I wear a 32G bra and have a 31 inch waist. The 12RC fits just about perfectly, while the 12SC is too baggy at the top. So, reviewing the one that was the correct size for me: this is a great shirt. It won't be my favorite shirt of all time, but it is a classic (hence the name) and will get a LOT of wear. It gives a defined waist without pulling and gapping at the bust, and the length is just right (apparently it has been made a bit longer than a previous incarnation). It is long enough to stay tucked in if that's the way you prefer to wear it, but is not so long that it looks sloppy when worn untucked. The sleeves have enough room in them to be rolled up comfortably. I'll keep an eye out for this one in other colors.

Overall Review: 5 out of 5 5 out of 5 5 out of 5 5 out of 5 5 out of 5 5/5 Nice but short
I got it in black. I am top-heavy with a belly problem and it makes me look thinner. I am 32 G/32GG and it fits fine. The arms are also fine. The tailoring is ok, but the shirt is still a bit short for me (above my hips). The sleeves could also be a bit longer. I love it in black but would love to see it in bordeaux red or dark/medium grey.
