Collection Drake's® for J.Crew perfect shirt in Bird of Paradise is rated 2.9 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Colorful & Wildly Patterned but Somehow Works Be warned that this top runs a little small, so you may want to size up. I'm 5'4", 125 lbs., & typically wear a size 0 or 2 in most clothes. In eyeballing this top at the store it looked a little small, so I tried it in Sizes 2 & 4. Size 2 looked tailor-made for me & fit perfectly, except for in the back across the shoulders, where it was so tight that it restricted my movement when reaching forward or trying to lift my arms to the ceiling. Size 4 was comfortable but fit much looser, thus lacking the "sharpness" & polished effect of the smaller size. I settled on Size 2 & will just have to "sit pretty" on the days I wear this top. IRL the burgundy color is not as rich/bright as depicted on the model in the photos. Instead the burgundy is a little flatter/duller & looks exactly as depicted in the photo of the shirt by itself. I actually prefer the flatter/more subdued burgundy shade on this top, given all the pattern as well. It's busy but the colors are lovely & it all somehow works.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from So Bummed I Couldn't Find the Perfect Fit I was eagerly awaiting this shirt. The print and colors are gorgeous. I thought the feel of the silk was nice. I am usually a 4 in J Crew Blouses. The 4 looked perfect on; however, I literally could not move my arms. So I re-ordered in a 6, and the fit in the bodice was a bit looser (not surprising) and the arms were better but still too tight and pulling when I moved. I probably could have lived with it, but considering the price, I decided it really needed to be perfect to keep and it just wasn't. I do have broad shoulders and muscular arms; but I'm not a body builder! I am bummed because ordering up to an 8 will likely result in too loose of a fit in the body. I may try the pants instead because the print really is killer!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from So wanted to love this, but ... This print is gorgeous! However, the cut of the shirt is bizarre -- while the shoulders are right on (TTS), it is tight under the arms (you feel it when you raise your arms, even to put your arms into a blazer) and tight in the lower torso. Tugs near waist. Sadly, going back ...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Beautiful Silk Pattern but..... There is something CLEARLY WRONG with the way this shirt is made! It fits fine throughout except like the other reviewers stated....the arms and shoulders are so VERY TIGHT it hurts like it is cutting into your arms. Sizing up would not be an option. The next size would be way to big otherwise and I feel the arm/shoulder issue would still hold true. So sad, as I wanted the shirt & pants to match as a set. Love all of the Drake prints, J. Crew so nailed it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Heartbreaking I absolutely LOVE this print, all the Drake's prints... and this shirt...sigh...I stalked the front door waiting for it's arrival... Fabric, meh... not as luxurious as it could be for an expensive silk... Fit... so extremely small in the shoulders and upper arms (and I am a ballerina, and a size 0 which is what I ordered) but then had extra fabric in the back so even sizing up it would still be strange... the cut of this shirt is just awful and I have been dreaming of it for so long...
