Denim & Co. Long Sleeve Oxford Tunic with Pockets
I am sorry to say that this tunic top was not only a terrible fit, but the material was stiff and cheap looking. It was so big on me that it stood out in the back and looked like a bell. I ordered an XS because there was no XXS. It was also much too long that I could have worn it as a mini dress. What's up with the sizing at QVC? I have been shopping at the Q for 20 years and I never had trouble with the sizing until last year. I am tried of sending merchandise back and paying S&H fees. Something has to be done because the consumers should not have to keep returning merchandise or sizing up or sizing down. When I make a purchase, I know that I want that item and am disappointed when I have to return it because of improper fit. This tunic is going back today.
I would like to thank everyone who took the time to write reviews. Your reviews and honesty concerning the ironing of this shirt was exactly what I was looking for when reading the reviews. I thought this shirt would need ironing but wanted to check before ordering, will be looking for a different shirt. Again thank you ladies. I don't recommend this for anyone but won't allow me to delete , mind of its own.
Looks like a lab coat
Looks like a medical jacket! D&C could do better than this!
Runs Smaller Than I Expected
I am right on the border between a large and extra large on the size charts. I usually go down to a Large when I order Denim and Co. That didn't work out very well for me on this top (I ordered the blue and the pink)... although it fits well enough in the shoulders and bust (both of which are small), it is super tight across my post menopausal gut. And of course, there is no chance of layering this shirt over a tee or turtleneck. But I haven't tried the shirt on in quite some time; I'm happy to say my gut has decreased in size...yay!!! I bet they're just fine now! (Still wish I'd ordered an XL, though!)
Like, but don't love
Bought white and gray last year. Like, but don't love. The fabric is coarser and heavier than I expected -- not like the oxford cloth shirts of my youth, making them too hot for summer wear. Washed one to make sure shrinkage wouldn't be excessive, which it wasn't; however, ironing is a must. Like another reviewer pointed out, even with a Rowenta iron steam assist, the original crispness couldn't be reproduced. I know I won't wear them as often as I thought I would because they will be waiting to be ironed much of the time. The pockets are a plus. The length is just what I wanted it to be: long. Paired them with D & Co pants.
This is a super top!!! If you do not like to iron, this one is not for you!!! But well worth it!!!
Not a flattering style for me:(
I'm gonna have to return this. It wrinkles easily, but more importantly it looks frumpy on me. Maybe because I'm plus sized I don't know. And I hate the placement of the pocket! Even so it's well made. It does run large so I sized down but it still looks bad.
not very flattering
Had to return the two I bought. Purchased my usual size 1X but was a bit too large and very full and unflattering in the back. Great quality fabric and weight, though. May look better on a smaller person?

love it PLEASE MAKE THIS WITH SHORT SLEEVES I HAVE THIS IN THREE COLORS AND BACK FOR MORE
I love to iron but.......
First off, I love this shirt and was so excited when I received it. Crisp, beautiful pink and loved the style and fit. Ironed out the few shipping wrinkles and loved this shirt. Then, I washed it. Now, I love to iron and I am kidded by many about my ironing of everything but this did not come back crisp at all and I use a professional Rowenta with steam. Very disappointed. Please fix this material and I will buy several colors.

I purchased two in white and gray. The material is excellent as well as the fit BUT too long.. Why not a reasonable length shirttail. Oh well. I thought of hemming them about to the bottom of the pocket but the price is too much for a lot of alteration. They are on the way back.
I ordered this shirt in the mocha color, which is a neutral with a touch of dusty pink in it and it is BEAUTIFUL, not to mention incredibly comfortable. I'm coming back for more colors!!
