Re IRONING which appears to be an issue with this. In my grocery store I discovered an excellent product which (for me) eliminates ironing of cotton clothing ~ it's Downy Wrinkle Release. When my shirts are about 90% damp dry, I take them from the dryer and spray about 1/4 of one side of the item with the Downy and then quickly run my hand over it (with pressure) to smooth out the wrinkles. The 'phone number on the bottle, to find out where you can buy this in your area, is: 1-800-220-0214.
This shirt I ordered one size larger than I usually wear and, after a cold water wash, the fit was okay. I've been very satisfied with Blair's products since I discovered them about ten years ago.

Do not buy!
I bought this striped shirt and am not happy with it at all. I read some negative reviews about it needing ironing. I do iron so wasn't too worried about the shirt. I couldn't get the lines out of the shirt from shipping just by ironing so decided to wash it. It faded and now looks like an old shirt I have had for years. Color is not bright as shown in the catalog once it is washed even though I used a cold water setting and did not tumble dry.

I had to shorten the sleeves
I shortened the sleeves by several inches on this shirt and the plum colored one as well, and sewed velcro in the front to keep it closed

Blair does not have a shirt size that fits me.
I have ordered shirts in different sizes, and they are either way too big or slightly too small.

Disappointing! Washed before I tried on.
Only washed 2 Blair blouses in same wash. Didn't put in dryer because it was so wrinkled, but did hang it up hoping wrinkles would lessen.
Unless you like to iron don't buy it! Also shrunk. Bought an XL & after washing was about a L. Now I can't return it because I washed it 1st.
Lesson learned? Never buy 100% cotton unless it notes "wrinkle resistant".
I have almost stopped buying on line because you never know if the product lives up to it's description.

very poor qulity of material, quite small for 2XL
Very quality of material and assembly of blouse. Size quite small for 2XL more like size 16.And not as pictured. Price was outlandish for the quality.
I returned the blouse
I'd been a Blair customer for years but am not sure I would order again

i have ordered other blouses from you in x-large and they fit fine. i didn't try these on because the size has been accurate. so now i have a too small blouse that has been washed. i am very disappointed!!!
