Columbia Bahama Shirt for Ladies
Own many colors
I really like both the long sleeved shirt and the short sleeved shirt. I own many colors of both. I wear a small in the short sleeved shirt but a medium in the long sleeved one. The long sleeved one runs smaller in the body than the short sleeved ones. I normally wear a medium in shirts so I would say the short sleeved shirt runs big and the medium is truer to size.
After washing, I put them in the dryer for a short time, then hang them to dry when damp and they look good. If you over dry them, they will be very wrinkled.

Great for Texas heat!
I bought this shirt because I am doing a biodiversity study in the woods this summer. I needed something light and breezy (because of the brutal Texas heat) but also something durable that wouldn't rip when working through brush. This shirt is wonderful for both purposes! It quickly wicks away my sweat and protects me from things like posion ivy. Can't wait to buy another one!
They are slightly large, but I think that's good because you don't want something too grippy when working outside.

I bought this shirt in march, and after reading the reviews I opted to go with a large because some were claiming it was tight in the shoulders. I have pretty broad shoulders but the large is much to big, I ordered the same shirt in short sleeve and medium not long ago and it fits perfect, it is not tight but it is not so lose and baggy that it doesn't still look feminine. Other then that I really like this shirt and plan to order more in short sleeve and long.

Great shirt, looks good, feels good and does the trick.
I got one last year and liked it so much that I ordered one in another color. You stay cool even in HOT temps and it protects great from biting bugs. I especially like the pockets as I often carry a GPS on the trail and even though it is on a lanyard around my neck, putting it in my pocket keeps it from bouncing around, while still handy to get to. (I am on horseback). Also love the velcro closures so you do not have to deal with buttons while on the go.
