I ordered a Medium and have many Richer Poorer things and am usually a Medium, and although I love this fit of this, it is a little tight around the armpits. You might want to size up for a slightly looser feel. But otherwise I like the fit and cut. Definitely a T-shirt that can be worn in the office or dressed up.
Great quality and value. Bought 3 of them!
This tee comes in beautiful colors, but is very fitted.
The problem is that it's kind of impossible to know what you're doing with this tee because RP's description is lacking. I learned from trial and error. And I am here to share my wisdom.
The description for this tee should say that it runs narrow in the shoulders / looser in the body, and that it runs a little small. It says it's "fitted through the body" but you can tell just by looking at the models that this is inaccurate.
But most importantly, you need to know that it will shrink a FULL SIZE in the dryer!! And that's how they recommend you wash it! (I don't believe in air drying t-shirts... life is too short.)
I bought one of these tees in size S when they were first released last fall. It seemed like it ran large but after washing, it was perfect! Fitted in the shoulders and across the bust, relaxed in the mid-section. I am petite and curvy with narrow shoulders, and a medium sized chest. For me this cut is a rare and flattering find! However, being that it's semi-fitted, it will not work for everyone.
I bought a SECOND tee recently and thought it was a fluke that it was so much smaller after washing. I ended up getting a replacement... well... it took me washing and drying (thus shrinking) two of these to RECALL that the first tee I ordered shrank A FULL SIZE. Either the sizing had changed, or the first tee I received was mislabeled.
Finally ordered this tee in a medium and washed it... now it fits exactly like the small I bought last year. Since I went through all the trouble to figure this out, I might have to get another one. I also really like the fabric.
Knowledge is power. RP should be more transparent about SHRINKAGE.
The t-shirt is very soft and comfortable. Feels very flattering. I ordered a large as that is what I have in other shirts from Richer Poorer and they are bigger on me. I wear a 36C bra. I had to exchange for XL. A little nervous to wash but I air dry all my clothes so hopefully does not shrink.
