Possible Keep - and review

You possibly remember my struggles with BR chambray tunic which had a defective placket and was pulling at the chest. I decided to order another one  - just in case if mine was a weird oddball.
While I was ordering my eye also fell on  the soft wash chambray BF shirt in a brighter blue. Well, it arrived yesterday and when I got it out of the package I was immediately smitten with the fabric. It is incredible: soft, drapes like a dream, feels like the best quality silk (even though it is viscose / lyocell blend). It even has a light sheen to it - sooo beautiful! (can you see I am infatuated already :-) ) BTW this is this shirt in this pin

Please not that it is not styled in the pictures at all - I just popped it over culottes I had on last night. I would wear it untuckes with skinnies or tucked or semi-tucked for culottes, BT+F jeans , etc.

Now I need some independent view on the style and fit as I very well may be blinded by the beautiful fabric here. What do you think of the style and the fit? This is size L - should I try size down as well? For comparison I added a picture of the chambray tunic - it feels much stiffer than this one.

Thank you in advance!

    I love it! Beautiful colour too. I think you may need the next size down tho.

    Gorgeous shirt. I'd try a size down to compare.

  • Mona replied 3 years ago

    The first one looks amazing, Sveta. Are you going to order a size down?

  • Sveta replied 3 years ago

    Just ordered size M before they are gone - L is not available anymore!
    Have to run to work - thanks for your help ladies!

    I agree with the others - colour is amazing, but I think a size down would suit you better! Hope you'll post a new pic when it arrives :)

    Gorgeous color, but it swamps you, I would certainly try a size down.

  • Suz replied 3 years ago

    I hope the size down will work -- it's a lovely colour for you!

    The drape and colour are fab. I would definitely try the size down.

  • Inge replied 3 years ago

    It is stunning (such a beautiful shade of blue, and amazing fabric) and I want one too:-) I too would like to see the size down on you, Sveta, so good job acting fast and ordering it before it's sold out:-)

    The color is amazing on you and I rather like it with the culottes - size down and it will be perfect.

  • Joy replied 3 years ago

    This color was made for you. I hope the size down works, but if not, maybe taking in the sides just a bit will make a big difference.

  • jackiec replied 3 years ago

    I'm glad you are trying the size down. The colour looks great on you, and the shirt seems to have a nice drape.

  • Janet replied 3 years ago

    Beautiful color, and I'm glad you ordered the next size down -- I think that will work better.

  • texstyle replied 3 years ago

    Agree with others - the size down might be perfect. Beautiful color on you!

  • Angie replied 3 years ago

    I prefer the first shirt, Sveta. Sorry to be a spanner. Do try a size down though - that could help a lot. It's a gorgeous colour on you.

  • lyn67 replied 3 years ago

    Great color, but size down! Love the chambray tunic in nr 4, too!

  • Sveta replied 3 years ago

    Thank you for the feedback.
    Angie, the tunic from the previous post is size M. I ordered size L first in it as well and it was too big - in more obvious way than this one. Trying on the new shirt I realized what bothered me about the first ty=unic (aside from the defective placket of course) - the stiffness of the fabric. I remember thinking that maybe it will soften after a wash...this new BF shirt does not have this problem at all. I also hope it will be easier to tuck in bcasue it is so soft.
    I will be waiting for the size M and reserve my judgement until then :-0 Most likely the shirt show off happens when I am back from my vacation so stay tuned!
