The shirt looks lovely, it really does. I like the idea of plastic press buttons as normal ones so easily pop loose. But it is definitely not a UK16. It has the same dimensions as a UK12, and even though I usually wear a UK14 with ease I had ordered a size up because I wanted some space around my chest. It does not even come close to being a UK16. I sadly can't refund them because I am not a UK resident so returning it would cost me about as much as I paid for it. Otherwise I might have gone a size up even further, but if this one is already two sizes under what its supposed to be I am not hopeful an 18 would be any better. If you have even an inkling of a larger chest(I am UK 34F) DO NOT BUY THIS.
I wear an extra small in practically everything, and the other xs items I buy from Necessary Evil generally fit pretty perfectly, however this shirt felt a little small-mostly at the collar. The bat wing detail is connected only at the collar, so it shifts around much like a caplet and I quite like the effect. The material is also odd, not the stiff, thicker material I'm used to with these types of dress shirts. The material alongside the plastic buttons make the shirt look a little cheap, but it's still a cute shirt and I most certainly will still be wearing it.
Really smart great for my work, comfortable as well.
