The fabric beautifully drapes into the perfect shape. Team this matte soft piece with distressed denim shorts, or layer under your favorite sweaters come cooler weather.
Note: Sand washing is one of the post-treatments for silk fabrics and it makes the fabric feel softer and removes the shiny appearance you get from silk satin.
Stunningly soft silk inside and outside, cuffs, collar, placket and pocket flaps are slightly corrugated thanks to the fused Interlining we inserted to provide extra structure for a sharper look. Whilst others don’t bother, we know it’s what distinguishes our shirts from the sloppy ones.
How to find your perfect size:
I loved this silk blouse but the size ordered was a 2XL which is a bit roomy. However I could not button this blouse. Too bad it was a beautiful blouse.
l have purchased a few other Camixa shirts, and they've always fit really well. I feel like some pattern resizing took place with this shirt to reduce production material costs. The sleeves are easily an inch shorter than every other Camixa shirt I've purchased in the same size. It's definitely not a relaxed loose fit as the description says. Or, I got an odd one out. The arm holes are only just large enough for comfort, but there's no breathing room between them and my arm pits. If I sweat even the slightest bit while wearing this, it's going to promptly soak into the shirt. The silk is a very stiff crepe fabric, it's a good fabric for a formal dress shirt you're going to iron, but there's no way this material is a casual no-iron wrinkle resistant material. I hand washed it when it arrived and hung it up to dry, the shirt doesn't look casual and chic, it looks like a dress shirt I failed to iron after being stuffed in my luggage rolled up in a ball for a week. all that said, it is a beautiful shirt, just not what i was looking for. i'll keep it for when I want a more polished and finished look and am willing to take an iron to it.
Very soft, beautiful color and fits as expected. I really love the way it looks and feels.
This is the second blouse I received this week from Camixa. The silk is beautiful. I have been looking for a white silk blouse in brick and mortar stores for awhile and was not willing to spend $250+ for a blouse to wear casually with jeans. It is also beautifully crafted with details such as fully finished seams. Like the linen/cotton blouse I just received it loses a star for fit. I was looking for a slouchy, casual look and thought ordering the XL would do it based on Camixa's size chart. Instead both blouses fit very well and give a more tailored look - and for reference I'm a 10/12 in clothes. Last night I ordered a 3rd blouse from them in an XXL and if it gives me the looser fit I'm looking for I may exchange the silk blouse for the larger size. But don't let the sizing issues many have had deter you from buying these - the quality is excellent in fabric and construction.
This blouse will swing from very casual if worn as pictured, or to the office or dinner. Tail is long in front and back, cut up on the sides a bit higher than other shirts I have. If you have large saddlebags or are trying to conceal very wide hips, choose another. I'm pretty much a large and their large was a little snug all around, but especially across the shoulders. I sized up because I prefer a roomier feel, and the XL was fine, but definitely roomy on top. The fabric is almost cottony feeling, rather than silky but I like to pop my collars and the firmness of the fabric will make that work just fine. I think this will stay in the closet as a good basic for a while.
I really like this shirt. The fabric is rich...nice quality. The fit is just a tad large so order down unless you want it to be very roomy.
Nice quality silk, plastic buttons slightly chipped but not really noticeable. Feels and looks decent. Sized up after reading reviews and am happy with my choice. Usually medium, got a large.
A classic! A must have!
Lete Silk White, Sand Washed Shirt with pockets
This shirt fits perfectly, really good quality cut and fabric.
Just received this shirt and I love it!
Made small but color is beautiful
This shirt is amazing. the quality. the fit. Its exactly as pictured in terms of color and fabric. I am returning it for a Large only because I like the loose, boyfriend fit. And Ill get a linen shirt for travel while Im at it! If you are questioning it - do it. You won't regret it. This is one of my favorite online purchase. And yeah for women designers doing their thing. Keep it up.
The sizing(not too tight) but still flattering is great. I really enjoy wearing them when I visit warm climates in the the US and during the summer where I live. The price is also great for the linen blends. Thanks
Fits well and I like the color a lot.
I had actually purchased this blouse last month and returned it, trying to economize w/a couple of less expensive rayon blouses - also pretty, but pilling after second wear. Decided I'd rather have 1 silk than 3 rayons. Lg fit well except gapped a little at bustline (36DD) so decided on XL. Blush color is palest pink w/tan tone.
I love this Camixa washed silk shirt in the blush color; the fit is perfect for me as it really flatters and hangs beautifully. As soon as I received the shirt, I touched it up with an iron on low heat to make the packaging wrinkles less noticeable, and was encouraged by the process, as I believe I can hand wash the shirt in cold water and Woolite and then dry it flat with toweling. It truly seems that it will be fairly easy to care for, but it will require some pampering, as most quality garments do. The shirt really fit me as expected, as I followed the measuring instructions which indicated I could wear a small. I am an older woman who has kept myself fit and fairly trim; I am 5'9" tall and I weigh 135 pounds, and my bust measures 34" and my waist is 27". The shirt drapes beautifully ( not loose but not tightly fitted either) and I can wear it in or outside my high rise pants. The sleeves are just right for me, reaching to about an inch below my wrist. I would buy another one in a heart beat, but I have already bought five of the Camixa shirts in various fabrics, colors and styles and I am very happy about all of them!
The fabric has the body of paper tissue. Even after washing and ironing it does not drape nicely. I am updating my review. The company contacted me and reminded me of the washing instructions. You really have to rinse the shirt with water and white vinegar, which is not very convenient, but it makes a big different. It feels a lot softer and drapes much better. I am considering buying another one in a different color, but maybe a different size.
Very comfortable and soft and does not pull at the bust like other button down shirts. Love the purple color. I have not worn it yet but the only negative so far is "dry clean only" because it is made from silk.
Love it! silk is of a nice quality and not see through. very happy with purchase.
Love the fit, colors, and pockets of the Camixa linen shirts. I also bought the silk ones, and I think they are tops too. I like for my shirts to fit so well that I don't feel one bit conscious about them. The Camixas fit the bill for me.

My one disappointment is the length for me is nothing like as shown on the model. I am 5'10" and there is no way to tuck the shirt in without showing skin on the sides as the shirt length on the sides barely comes to the top of my pants, and I do not wear low-cut pants. Won't be ordering this again.
I just received this shirt. I have tried it on around the house but haven't worn it out yet, so I can't speak to its durability. What I can say is that it is very well made. Sturdy design, great fabric and the color is true to the picture (I ordered the blue). I am normally a US6-8 and my measured boyfriend fit was Medium. I ordered the Large to be on the safe side and I'm glad I did. It is not too fitted but not too slouchy. The sleeves are the loosest, most boyfriend-fit part about the shirt, but they are a perfect length for my arm span (I'm 5'6"). Providing the shirt holds up to wear, I plan on purchasing the blush and the white versions sometime in the near future.
Very nice silk shirt. Good quality and well made. Feels good against my skin.
I really wish this shirt worked out. I have wider than average shoulders and an athletic build, I'm 5'3 and 125 lbs usually, although I just had a baby so I'm 146 right now with a little belly, but everything else is about the same as I was pre-pregnancy. I usually fit a size 2 or 4 shirt, depending on the brand. I wanted a boyfriend fit, but the instructions were a bit misleading. I measured my favorite shirt, which fit me the way I wanted this shirt to fit and then proceeded to order the size that was closest to what I measured. I even ordered a size up for the "slouchy" boyfriend fit it suggested (a Small). Well, it came in and it was more fitted than slouchy. And the shoulders were tight, not surprising. SO I returned it and ordered a larger size. I wanted to get a Medium but it didn't come in medium for some reason, so I got the XXL since that was the next size available. At first I thought it was just right. I tried it on at night and it felt comfortable and soft and wasn't tight on my shoulders. But in the light of day and wearing skinny jeans in the way I wanted to wear this shirt as an outfit, it didn't work. The pockets are so big on me it outsizes my chest. If I wore this with a high waisted skirt the pockets would almost tuck into them. Basically I was swimming in it. UPDATED REVIEW: I tried a third time for a size Large to see if that fit me right and it was pretty damn close, but still not the fit I was looking for, just slightly too big and it made me look more stocky than I am. I had also ordered the Lotus linen shirt from the same designer in a medium, since it was available, to see if that was my size and I love it. I'm keeping that one. I think if the silk came in medium I would get that one too, now that I know my "size" for boyfriend fit. I do hope the silk comes in a version without front pockets though, since those play a big role in making the shirt look too big on my frame.
I love this shirt! It is really easy to wear in any occasion, during weekends with a short or at work for business attire. Also fit any seasons. I have bought different shirts from Camixa and I am always highly satisfied with quality and look! each new shirt becomes my favorite. The customer service is amazing! Can't wait to buy the new one!
