My uniform as of late has been loose tops with form-fitting bottoms, so I decided to give their silk blouse a try. It also helps that I've discovered a $2/item dry cleaners nearby so my lazy self no longer dreads washing items by hand. I chose the nude color, which is a pretty peachy-pink in person. Sheerness is not an issue with this color, but may be with a lighter color like white. Regardless, I wear a nude cami underneath. I don't own many 100% silk items in my closet, so the slight sheen of the fabric took a little getting used to (not visible in photos, more apparent in person). The fabric feels substantial so hopefully it can withstand random snags. But most of all, I love the way it drapes.
The cut of the blouse is straight through the torso, so it already has the loose-fitting look I was looking for. When deciding on sizing, I stumbled across a forum thread where one person shared that Everlane blouses fit similar to Equipment Brett blouses and are much slimmer than Equipment Signature blouses. Can anyone who's familiar with both share their thoughts?
Everlane silk blouse measurements:
- in XS (by me): 15.25" shoulder-to-shoulder / 27.5" length / 23.13" sleeve length
- in XS (from thread): 15.13" shoulder-to-shoulder
- in S (from thread): 15.63" shoulder-to-shoulder

Everlane offers free shipping and free returns on your first order, which is great if you're unsure of sizing or just want to try out their items. I had actually placed an order with a typo in my shipping address, so I quickly canceled my order. When I resubmitted my order, the system didn't reapply the first time free shipping offer, but an email to customer service rectified that. I've also read through other forum threads that customer service is prompt and helpful with sizing inquiries.
