Women's Premium Washable Linen Shirt, Tunic is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 216.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good basic linen top Good basic linen top. I would prefer it be a tad longer, so it covers my bottom completely. The length is in-between tunic and regular length. I bought this to wear as an everyday top. I wear it alone or over a tank/cami. It does get quite wrinkly after washing/air-drying but I don't mind; that's part of it's charm. The upper back yoke has a pleat on each side which I would prefer LLBean omit. These pleats make the back bulge out. While I understand the pleats were probably added to provide more back room; I would prefer a flat yoke/back look. The colors are pretty and the fabric soft and breathable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my linen top I purchased this in the Petite XS in Ocean Blue. I am 5' 113#. I wasn't planning on the Ocean Blue - I went to the store to try on the Cirrus Blue and the True Navy Stripe, but the Ocean Blue had the best fit and the color is amazing in real life. For me it is slightly fitted and not too long. Wonderful fit. I love linen and the way it wrinkles. I have not laundered this yet, but I have two other older LLBean linen pieces which have laundered and worn beautifully. I plan on also purchasing the Aqua Teal Gingham color which is a nice color in real life (didn't have my size in the store). I highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Lovely Shirt I finally gave up my LLBean campshirt of 15 years and was looking for a replacement when I found these tunics and bought the Cirrus Blue, a lovely color. Linen does require a little extra care to looks its best, a slightly rumpled, soft look. I washed it on the delicate cycle in cool water. I added a half cup of white vinegar to the rinse cycle. Vinegar is a natural, gentle fabric softener. Then I hung it on a hanger to dry, finger pressing the edges and collar. Linen dries fast. If you iron linen it will get stiff and shiny, not what I wanted. It looks even better now than when I bought it! However, if you want a smooth, permanent pressed look that lasts all day, do not buy linen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite I own several of these linen shirts in XL petite, and just added the aqua color one to my collection. I live in a northern CA inland valley, where it gets very hot and dry for four or five months of the year, and during those months I live in these shirts. I buy one size larger than I normally wear, just so I can feel the air circulating, and wear them with the sleeves rolled up to just below the elbow. The fabric is fluid, so it doesn't look frumpy being over-sized. The shirts launder beautifully. I love the aqua color, and it was on sale, too....a bonus. Please keep making these wonderful shirts. I will keep buying!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It really IS washable! I bought the white linen shirt in size large. I do not like a tight fit so I choose L for everything. I am 5'4" with broad shoulders and a 36A bust. Built like a tree trunk, but even if you're curvy this shirt will work. It's generous in the hips and even after washing it fits like a "big shirt" on me. I washed it in a laundry bag and cautiously put it in the dryer for 5 minutes. It still looked fine, so I did another 5 minutes. Still good! I dried it until nearly dry with no discernable shrinkage! Wonderful!! I have put other linen blouses in the dryer and they shrunk so badly I had to toss them. No human other than a toddler would be able to wear them. So this blouse is a winner all the way around!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poorly designed shirt I bought this to add something lightweight and breezy to my wardrobe with the intention of wearing it with leggings or skinny jeans. I didn't particularly like it right out of the package. The fit is kind of "manly" - boxy without any figure-flattering qualities. Once I washed it, however, my opinion downgraded severely. It is now nothing but a wrinkled, sloppy looking mess. It is also a bit heavier than I was expecting it to be, so not something I would want to wear in hot weather. Linen is supposed to be light enough that it can be worn in warmer weather without causing discomfort. All in all, this was a gross waste of money. I do not recommend this shirt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from amazing fit I am a very short plus size. for any shirt to fit this perfect is wonderful. It fits through the shoulders, bust waist and buttons all the way down. the sleeves are about 2 inches long but considering my height that is not an issue. I like the cut of the armhole and the upper sleeve. I look forward to wearing it alone or as an over shirt. The color is excellent and I would like to see more deep rich tones in LLBeans assortment year around. I can't wear pastels and don't wear black, true white or gray. Jewel tones and deep rich colors would be great. when you have them, I buy all of them.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed I have a number of LLBean linen shirts, some many years old, which I love. I have to say, though, that I was quite disappointed with the fabric in this shirt. Like the style, like the color, but... I know you have to iron linen, but the linen fabric in this shirt looked crumpled after steam ironing on a linen setting. I finally realized I needed something besides a hot steam iron to get a reasonable press. I sprayed the fabric with Downy Wrinkle Release then ironed again. It looks better, but certainly doesn't look like a shirt that has been ironed twice. The fabric is just not as nice as past LLBean linen shirts. I'm keeping this shirt since I really like the color, but would not order any more.
