I know nothing about sewing, but I am pretty sure it is tricky to nail down a good boatneck design. Well, look no further. This shirt has everything I like. Forgiving, stretchy fabric that feels substantial without running hot. Sleek silouette that makes me feel quite fancy. Leng enough to be tucked in without being awkward. Definitely follow the instructions for size: go by your shoulder width. I have "strong" shoulders that often get pinched in a size small. Ordered Bateau top in medium and it fits perfectly: slight draping at the collar bone and smooth through the shoulder. Doesn't get better than that!
LOVE this top! Got so many compliments! The neckline is feminine and clean, and the fit is very slimming! Highly recommend! Get one in every color!
