Rated 3 out of 5 by jcrewing Petite Runs Small in Shoulders
Because petite sizes aren't in many stores and early reviews stated the shirt ran large, I ordered a 0 petite and 2 petite. I'm 5'2", 108 lbs., 30A, with slightly broad shoulders. I like my tops slightly loose (not form fitting). I'm consistently a J Crew size 2 petite or regular size 0 in button downs. I found this shirt to run narrow, but only in the shoulders. The 0 petite constricted my shoulders uncomfortably and the shirt pulled tightly when I lifted my arms--but the body fit perfectly (so the shirt may run large for others here). The 2 petite was still shoulder snug, but bearable, and the body was slightly looser, but not baggy. I could get away with 2 petite, but given the shirt price, I'd like to try it in a 4 petite or a regular 0 (despite longer sleeves). Sizing aside, the shirt is versatile, great with white pants/skirt, blue denim, greys, and can be worn from summer to fall, casual, office, or evening. A good wardrobe buy!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Alise Runs way too large
I am consistently a 0 regular or 2 petite in J.Crew shirts. I ordered a 2 petite and it is so enormous that it looks as if I'm wearing my husband's shirt--it's not even in the realm of a woman's size and the proportions are way, way off. Not sure what went wrong when this pattern was cut but they definitely need to go back to the drawing board on this one!
