Columbia Silver Ridge Shirt for Ladies
Ordered size up so buttons wouldn't pull.
I'm an average frame 5'6", 36C. I saw other comments about ordering up so the buttons would not pull across the breast. I decided to do that and ordered an XL. The shirt fits really nicely-buttons don't pull, shoulders sit pretty well, sleeves come slightly over my palm #which I want in the sun#. The shirt is a little fuller through the torso because of how I ordered, but it's perfect for fit, function and comfort. I have ordered a second. Would recommend, but think about the sizing issue if you are fuller busted.

These shirts fit great! I love the slim shapely fit. The sleeves are actually long enough for me also. I also like the ease of washing, drying and wearing with no ironing needed. I wear my shirt with jeans as well as dress slacks to work. I own four of these and plan to purchase more.

I usually don't wear button downs. I just never thought they looked good on me or they don't fit right. I bought this one because I was going to Maui for a wedding (bridesmaid) and needed an easy shirt to get out of without ruining my hair.
After wearing it, I love it! And I really like the way it looks too. I didn't think I'd like the sleeves rolled down, but I even like it that way too!
It is very comfortable. Lightweight enough to wear in the summer. With the long sleeves, even nice for the cold spring in the NW. I'm about 5'8", but the length works, which can be difficult sometimes. So now I'm planning to get more in different colors!

Great shirt for sun coverage
I was admiring my cruise mate's crisp shirt. It was neat and smart looking. I asked her what brand and she told me Columbia. She layered with long sleeve cotton shirt. She said she washed at night, and it was dry in the morning, no wrinkles. Since sun is a problem for me I thought I would try. I purchased 2 of these shirts. I read the reviews, normally I wear M I did size up to L. It's a little big, especially in the hip area. I may size down as it stretches.
I like the fact that the collar extends to cover the neck. The sleeves cover the top of hand to help stop sun damage.
I would recommend this to a friend!
