My weekend workplace requires all employees, male and female, to wear long-sleeved white button-down shirts. Many of my female coworkers have purchased men's shirts (because a basic women's shirt is usually hard to find), but as I am rather large-chested, any men's shirts I tried hung on me like a shapeless TENT.
By chance, I found these shirts at a Walmart in a town I was passing through, tried on the XXL, then actually went DOWN a size to an XL, and bought two. Six months later, with BBQ and other food stains beginning to show up on the cuffs and sleeves of those original shirts (though rotating use of bleach, peroxide, and white vinegar soaks have helped reduce those stains), I bought two more, and have one of those held in reserve in the event of the complete annihilation-by-food-stain of one of my other shirts.
This shirt fits a little large, but that allows you to go down a size if you're right on the cusp, especially as the Spandex affords it a little extra give across the shoulders without gaping in the front. The polyester helps reduce wrinkling, which means this is ALMOST a wash-and-wear shirt. I usually spray mine with Downy Wrinkle Reducer and hang them up overnight, and they look almost freshly-ironed when I get ready for work the next morning. The fabric IS a little thin and slightly see-through, so I always wear a flesh-toned bra underneath it.
All in all, an excellent work shirt for food service!
