John Lewis Girls' School Fitted Stretch School Blouse, White
Bring back the old design
The sleeves of the new design are a disaster, as the other reviewers have commented. We also think that the pintucks have altered the fit for the worst.

Sleeves still too tight!
Bought 15yr old blouses for my daughter - however cuffs at bottom of sleeves incredibly tight - and my daughter has very slim arms! Have just read other reviews and it seems this is an on-going problem from last year. As this is a mandatory blouse for my daughter's school, am a bit stuck. Guess will have to buy a bigger size, hope the cuffs are bigger, and alter the blouse myself around the body. Any timescales as to when this might be resolved?

Altered from last year
I purchased 4 of these lovely fitting blouses last year and needed three more this year, however sadly you have changed the width of the arm cuffs and put buttons on them for some reason, they are way too tight for my daughter and she is of slim very build, desperately need to exchange these for the older style, can they be sourced still as my local JLP did have them but not in her size? :(

do not buy
Unfortunately the sleeves on this blouse were so narrow that neither of my girls could bend their arms! so we had to return prouduct. We did then order the short sleeved blouse - fantastic!! washes well, dries quickly, minimal ironing!!

Sleeves too tight!
my daughter is extremely slim & these sleeves were too tight for her around the elbow- so who are they made for?!

well fitting blouse, looks good, cotton resonable quality and thick enough not to reveal underwear, stretchy material makes comfortable to wear. downside is that the fitted cuff on the bottom of the sleeves are a bit too fitted, and cuts into arm and elbow area when bending your arm. sleeve probably needs to be a bit longer, or slightly wider at the cuff to avoid this. overall very nice.

Nice quality blouse, unfortunately too tight
This style of blouse is stipulated for school uniform which I also bought last year. Unfortunately, this year I bought the largest size available and they came up too tight across the chest for a "developing" adolescent. It would be good to see bigger sizes for young girls bearing in mind their body changes as I can't fault the quality of JL products.

This blouse fitted my daughter really well. It is more flattering than the normal school shirt, whlch is perfect for a 13 year old who is into fashion! It washes without any creases and so does not need ironing, which is perfect for me!
