Question on Linea item A351412 Button Front Shirt with Pockets

I ordered this shirt last night and then became worried I should have sized down as the measurements were a little bigger for the medium and I am between a small and a medium. Can anyone tell me if it fits big? I tried to change my order but could not, was told by CS that you only have 30 minutes after ordering to change it before it is locked in. Thank you.

@Carmille  I normally wear a Small in Linea tops but on this shirt, the Small was too small. I couldn’t even button it closed! I have to think about it, but I may have to order the Medium. My 2nd shirt was a Small & had the same measurements as the XS. So I am reluctant to order a Medium on the off chance those click here measurements are correct (it would be too large for me to wear). 

 

For those interested, the fabric does have a slight slubbing as the matching pants.

Thank you JustJazzmom. Wow, I hope I have made the correct decsision. Maybe it is running on the small size? The medium shows the bust measuring 44.5 inches which is a bit over what I would typically wear but maybe because it is a flowy type fabric, it will not be an issue. Sorry you had issues with sizing, hate sending things back. Thanks again for your help..

I usually wear xxs in knits and xs in wovens. I went with the xs and it fits well. I personally think this is the kind of shirt or shirt jacket that is better larger rather than smaller. It is very soft and drapes to the body. I don't think you made the wrong choice. BTW it's a wonderful jacket.

Thank you Marilyn. I think you are correct, the medium was the way to go. Don't want it tight in any way. And wearing as a jacket is how I will wear most of time. Can't wait to get it. It looks devine! Thanks again for your input!

I really could have even gotten a sm. The xs fits perfectly, but I like this type of jacket oversized. That's just mu personal preference.

@Carmille  How did the dill jacket work out for you? Was the Medium the correct choice?
