    Equine Couture Sportif Technical Shortsleeve Shirt is rated 4.1636 out of 5 by 55.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Comfortable! I'm a plus sized rider, which means finding show clothes is next to impossible. The 2X fits my 45" bust comfortably while still being long enough to be tucked in. The neck was snug but not super uncomfortable and the contrast color was very flattering. Sadly, my dog got ahold of my first one, so I had to order a second, but I knew I wanted another one of these and not any other shirt.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shirt I love this shirt. The white area is not sheer like a lot of white shirts. The sleeves are a bit longer but work well. The tan side panels are so becoming. I bought it to wear at a local show when the tempature was 98 degrees and it was perfect.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits great and enhances waistline I love this shirt, fits great and the dark sculpting on the side actually enhances my waistline. I have a thick mid section and usually dread wearing white shirts alone, I have no problem wearing this shirt alone. Added bonus it's great value.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great design for schooling and showing! One word - LOVE! Fabulous fit and fabric! The details of this would be found in a much 'higher end' shirt. I did find the shirt runs a tad small. Not significant enough for me to go up a size...but it fits more 'European'!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from didn't like I returned this. It gapes where the extra fabric is between the plackets.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprised I bought for a show and had read passed reviews. It surpassed my expectations, the material was not see through, fit well, was roomy as I did not want form fitting. Went underneath my jacket easily and could be worn on hot days by itself. For a schooling show, I just zipped up the neck and it looked great without a stock tie. Love it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from light weight but runs a little big I purchased this and I love it...light weight but does run a little big...I would go with a size down.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from yay for plus sizes Excited for plus sizes! The collar is definitely not proportionately sized to the body of the shirt but it's a start!
    Date published: 2014-08-25
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit! I am a "bigger girl" and bought this hoping it would fit well in the chest and actually cover my fanny when tucked in. And it is PERFECT! I wish there were more color and I would have one for each day of the week

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Boxy and large, but still adorable! It is true that this shirt is rather boxy and runs large, but I still think it's cute. I can get away with it without a jacket for the weekday jumpers, and then I can throw a jacket over it for weekend equitation and hunters. It looks fine under my jacket. I like that it isn't all white, and the fabric is opaque enough to keep my bra from showing through.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great shirts with one catch I over all loved the shirt, the sleeves weren't too short, yet not too long. If you are looking for a SHORT, short sleeve shirt this is the wrong one. But overall i am tiny and the shirt was a bit loose fitting, but it was great and comfy, i actually found it gave me room to breathe! the color ( i got white and navy) and the fabric are fabulous!! The only catch is the top..when you lower the zipper you do that for a reason..yet there is a triangle of fabric under the zipped portion that does not give you the feeling you want, if you want it unzipped, but that could be to make it look more professional in certain settings(i.e a clinic, etc.) I really love this shirt though, and am going to order another one..i wish they had more colors!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Boxy style shirt, fabric inside zipper awkward I ordered this in both1x and 2x because I wasn't sure which would be more comfy. I returned both. Both were very boxy, not contoured fit, which was unflattering. Sleeves too long for a women's style short sleeve. I also found the little fabric triangle inside the zipper irritating. It made the shirt too closed in and neck constricted. Might have been fine on a gal who is not chesty, though! I thought the 2 tone was cute, wished it had been a more feminine style.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from great for hot weather This shirt was light and cool, great for riding in hot weather. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is that the cut was just a little odd - the front was longer than the back. Also if I'm going to get picky, I'd rather the sleeves be just slightly roomier. But overall, a very nice shirt which I would buy again!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Way too sheer I purchased this shirt intending to wear it to schooling shows. As a size 18 it's tough to find flattering riding attire, and I was pleasantly surprised by how nice the fit was. I liked that the blue sections on either side were slimming. Unfortunately, the shirt was nearly see-through. Not even layering a white tank underneath it helped -- you could see the tank! I returned the item.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not a fan Ran large---im swimming in it. Ended up having to use it anyway as I was short on time for a show. Also was expecting a crisp white shirt, the color was more off white to me.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Runs big I wasn't a huge fan of this shirt, I sent it back right away. It looked ok and felt ok but i ordered a small and it was baggy and just didnt fit me well. Not at all tight like in the pic. I'm 5'8 and 145 pounds so not exactly stick skinny, would've thought the small would be plenty small. Oh well!
    Date published: 2013-05-15
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Runs large, shapeless fit I love EC's stuff and was surprised at the boxy, unflattering fit of this shirt. I'm a medium normally. The sleeves are large and longish (boxy), and the shirt lacks feminine tailoring. Also, the fabric is rather see-through. The shirt is very long and will definitely stay tucked in... but of course, it also bunches up in your breeches. I bought it for a dressage show and it was so unflattering I wore an Adidas shirt under my jacket and tie instead. It's likely very cool and durable, but I was disappointed at the fit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice shirt Love this shirt. Fits well and the navy is very slimming. Wish the neck wasn’t so tight but it still works. I plan on using this for my clinic coming up (or the long sleeve version if its chilly). I would definitely buy this again.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Adorable shirt but... This is an adorable shirt with a great fit and look for show- but the stock tie keeper's snaps broke off the first time I wore it! Probably wouldn't be terribly difficult to fix but I really hope not to be making repairs on clothing after one wear! Otherwise a nice and (seemingly) well constructed shirt so long as you don't require the stock tie keeper.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits Great! Looks Great! I am extremely pleased with this purchase. Very flattering look; good quality; nice material. I wear a size 8 and purchased a Medium. Planning to take this, as well as the long-sleeve version on an 8-day horseback safari in Kenya.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great Eventing Show shirt I loved this shirt to wear for dressage and stadium phases of an event. It holds the stock tie in place in the back of the neck with a secure snap flap. Not too hot. Fit was great for me (small). the decorated fabric when opening the front zip was a cute touch that I haven't seen before. Works nicely so you don't get that V-shaped sunburn when you're relaxing between phases.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shirt for schooling or show! I am so glad I purchased this shirt. It is super comfortable, long enough to tuck in nicely, and really looks sharp. The sleeves are just long enough to flatter your arms. The sizing was pretty consistent with shirts I buy in department stores. The zip up neck fits like a typical show shirt choker. I wore it recently in a clinic and will be wearing it at my next show.
    Date published: 2012-07-06
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable and Affordable I wear this shirt for shows. I like it -- it's comfortable and affordable. It looks nice under my jacket with a stock tie. The zip neck is a nice design touch.After reading the reviews, I bought the large size since it supposedly runs large. (I normally wear a medium.) I guess those other gals must be bustier or have wider shoulders than me. The large is big on me, especially in the shoulders. If you wear a medium normally, I think the medium would fit just fine.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Investment Purchased the long-sleeve version of this shirt several years ago and decided to go with a short sleeved version - it's a very complementary looking shirt no matter what size you wear. Was very pleasantly pleased with the updated/wicking fabric and, like the older version, it washes and wears nicely.
    Date published: 2012-06-09
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this shirt! I purchased this shirt to use in dressage shows and I love it. I have never worn anything so comfortable. The other reviews were very helpful as to fit. I normally wear a large or size 14 ladies, and this shirt fit me like it was tailor made. I was more comfortable and cooler in the ring than ever before, it helped me feel more relaxed, and was easier to ride in than a shirt with a ratcatcher collar! It looks very professional, too. Like one of the previous reviewers said, if you're "looking to hide your stuff" you might want to purchase a sports bra to wear under the shirt or a "body slimmer". I plan to order more of these shirts in the future.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I didn't think I had a fat neck... I thought I was a pretty normal yet curvy gal. The shirt did a nice job of fitting around my waist and arms. I wear an XL in regular attire and the sizing stayed true for this shirt EXCEPT for the neck. Zipping it up for the show as a giant UGG...GASP...CHOKE. It is extremely tight in the neck but it does stretch out when you jerk on it enough with out tearing.Things I loved included the little horses on the neck and butt, the blue armpits (when you take your dress coat off no one has to know that you sweated that class out), the cut that shows off the figure, and that I totally got slimmed in one wear and the green pony slime came right off with a bit of tide and the shirt after five shows and all that pony dirt, the white still looks 'new' white.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from This top is nice looking & good material. The fit is just a little too trim for hot weather riding.
    Date published: 2012-05-11
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from I had high expectations for this piece, as I mostly love all of the Equine Couture line. Especially since I'm a full-figured gal and they offer cute stuff in bigger sizes! While the idea of this top is great, the size isn't. I would say it's flattering, but the neck (as mentioned in other reviews) is strangely too tight! Also, the white fabric is a bit see-thru. For someone trying to camoflauge her stuff a bit, this is NOT a good choice. However, perhaps on a thinner gal, this would be great!
