SHORT SLEEVE DOUBLE COLLAR ESSENTIAL SHIRT
Cute shirt but very wide in the waist area.
I absolutely love the style and look of this shirt! I read the other reviews about it bleeding but I washed the shirt on cold, gentle cycle, and had NO problem with the collar bleeding. I did buy the white not the brownish tan color. My issue with the shirt is that I got the x-small and there is SO MUCH extra material in the waist area. I like the look so much that I bought it and took it to my tailor and even he was surprised by how huge Express has made this "x-small" shirt. So, if you love the look and can get it cheap enough to make it worth tailoring, buy it!

Cute Shirt for work
This was very different from your typical work shirt. It's very cute and comfy. I wear a undershirt underneath so that people cannot see through. I love this shirt!

do not buy
This blouse fit perfectly and looks great, however, after the first wash (following the instructions, cold water, hang dry, etc.) The black in the collar and trim bled into and stained the white material in the collar and the sleeves. There is a major flaw in the design and manufacture of these shirts... unfortunate, because they look good and fit well.

Classy and Different
I really like the gathered sleeves because I don't have many shirts that fit my small arms very good and this shirt does. I didn't have the issue with the black washing into the tan of the shirt (I didn't buy the white one though). It does come out a little wrinkled after washing, but nothing too crazy that can't be fixed with a quick iron. The pockets on the front are fake and that's a little cheesy to me. Other than that, the fit is very good and I would buy it in white too.

Cute but not colorfast
Has a really cute fit, but after the first wash (in cold water with like colors), the black on the bottom of the collar bled through to the white on the top of the collar, making it look patchy and green. It's really flattering, but I really can't wear it now because it looks old and stained.
