This shirt is an absolute must have for every working girls wardrobe! Once you find out your fit its so snug and nice quality. I would recommend you purchasing multiples of this shirt.

Hit/Miss color/size shirts
I wanted to like these shirts I really did. But the size and colors of these shirts are just too inconsistent to be healthy. The pink shell color I received looks like a peachish color online...but the one I got was a dark salmon pink color. The sizes are also hit and miss...the last color I had purple orchid had a odd bulge in the middle of the shirt, but the pink shell version was tighter in the arms. Going to try one final time in another color and hope I receive a decent fitting shirt for the price.

Very fitted shirt on the fence
Going off the size chart I fall right in between sizes with a 35 inch 32 DD bust so I tried both size small and medium size shirts on and def feel like the shirt is designed to fit close to the body. I had to try several different smalls on before finding right ones that didn't gap in the middle. Each shirt is actually cut a little differently and I noticed that they have a production date on the side tag and the older they were the tighter they seemed to fit. Seems like they shrink a little on their own over time. I don't know if I am going to keep or not because if they shrink at all I'll be busting out of them. The blues are pretty but the in store color options aren't as plenty as the online. I love express and appreciate the great experience I have when I shop there.

I bought this shirt in the cobalt blue and the color is bright and adorable. This shirt is the perfect attire for work because it goes great with any style pants. It can also be dressed down with jeans and some boots or flats. It fits true to size or else if you get bigger it will be to baggy in the shoulders. The material is strong so it lasts for awhile! The only down side is the shirt wrinkles easy so make sure to take care of that before you wear it.

The essential shirts are pretty, but they are big. X-small usual fits in Express, but these shirt still look baggy on me. I bought one a while back that was a Fitted Essential, not an Orignial Essential, and love it! However, I can't find them anymore! Please bring them back, Express! I need more colors!
