Women's Premium Washable Linen Camp Shirt, Short-Sleeve is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 75.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just what I wanted except for ... I bought three of these shirts. I normally wear a size 14 but I got these in size XL to allow for shrinkage and also because I wanted something loose and airy for mid summer. The fabric and workmanship are very good and I think they will hold up well over time and numerous washings. The style is very boxy and I would have preferred having darts for a bit of shaping. I washed them for the first time in warm water and tumble dried them on low heat. They shrank several inches in length which was much more than I imagined, and an inch or two in the width. The weight of the fabric is noticeably heavier than it was before washing. The shrinkage is significant enough that it needs to be considered when purchasing this shirt.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Boxy shape and quite short This shirt (designed for women) does not have any darts. Since linen is fairly stiff, the shirt hangs from the shoulders very straight, and looks very boxy on. I always wear a medium from LLBean, and this shirt was at least a size too large. It is also VERY short. The hem is cut straight across the bottom and hits at the high hip - and I'm only 5'4" so it will be really short on someone who is taller. I'm really disappointed because I love linen and love the casualness of camp shirts, but this one just looks awkward. I'll be returning the two I purchased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Boxy, breezy, summer shirt Sturdy mid-weight linen that is perfect for hot days. Wash it per the label instructions and get it out of the washer asap. tumble dry in an already warm dryer with other items for no more than one minute. hang it up and "iron" all the damp seams and edges with your fingers. It will then be fine for dog walking and other chores like the grocery store. If you are going out to tea, you may wish to iron. I liked the vintage plum so much I also got the blue plaid and the plaid hides the wrinkles even a little better, but it's linen so wrinkles are expected and welcomed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Which one? The first of these shirts I purchased was great; large and breezy. I did need to iron it but very little and it smoothed out easily. I bought another for a back up because I liked the first so much (you know how things vanish from the catalogue at LLBean). The second shirt was quite inferior to the first. The linen was rough and stiff and it came with permanent wrinkles in the fabric. The body was broad and the sleeves narrow. They're just 2 different shirts and the second one I'll have to pass along. I would recommend this shirt with the information that they might need to send it back if it's style 2.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I wanted Traditional camp shirt, loose and boxy fit. Good quality linen and nicely made. The plum color is lovely. I washed it in cold water on the gentle cycle, but it did shrink slightly in length only. If you are uncertain about size, call customer service and ask for the finished chest width for your size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for Loved this shirt; just the summer shirt I was looking for. I got the blue and the purple/lilac color, both were pretty much as pictured, though the lilac was really prettier than the picture (deeper in color). The fit was as expected and the linen material is really lovely. I WISH they would make this in white, but I'm happy with the two colors I did purchase.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Linen I love cotton "camp shirts" and they are really hard to find. So, I got this one and these are my two comments: 1) It shrank when washed (I sent it back). I wish they were in women's 1x,2x etc. 2) I love linen, but have found that LL Bean linen is super wrinkly..no such thing as wash'n wear

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Loved the green I look for different colors each year LL Bean puts out their linen shirts, and I loved the green. However, each year they change the placket and collar as well. I didn't like the unsewn placket in the front and the way it runs into the collar. And I like shirts that have a seam running around the outside edge of the collar, it helps keep it in place. This style leads to having to iron down the lapels after washing. I typically wear my short sleeve linen shirts over tank tops and don't button them. This style isn't really conducive to that look. Unfortunately, I sent it back.
