Rated 2 out of 5 by SugrnSpice Don't waste your money
I wish the brand name would have been listed before ordering this shirt. For those that would like to know it's Planet Motherhood. This brand can be found elsewhere for half the price of JCPenney.
I tried the shirt on before removing the tags and thought ok it's a little snug I just won't put it in the dryer. Even washing on cold and air drying, the shirt shrunk and was much tighter. I am in 4 weeks from my due date, and the shirt isn't quite long enough to cover my belly so you see the panel of my maternity pants. It's not made well either. After washing is shrunk funny, so the shirt it lopsided, causing it not sit properly on me while wearing it. I feel like I was constantly tugging on the shirt to force it to lay right. The material is nice and it's soft, just not cut properly. If you are going to order if I suggest a size larger than what you would normally wear in maternity shirts. Unless you like tight clothing. I mean tight, not fitted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MishaMills Sized to pre-pregnancy, quality fabric, rich color
I am a 4th time mom with 17 years between my last child and this one. The shirt is on trend which is to say, that it clings much more than shirts I wore during pregnancy way back when but is very flattering, it does not cling overly tight like a tee, the rueshing and the bottom band keep it simple but flattering.
At 5'7" and at a pre-pregnancy size of XL, I ordered the XL. Some brands JCP sells for their maternity line do not fit true to size, you would need to order a size up (or down). This item was back ordered for almost a month, however, the XL still fits perfectly at 36 weeks and should be just fine for the immediate after delivery body changes.
Quality of fabric is actually very surprising based on the cost of the shirt, I would rank the quality at or near higher end maternity retailers.
My only issue was the very limited stock JCP carries in selection, sixes and colors across the board for maternity. In our town no one else sells maternity fashions casual or work. including our JCP store. Sizing the maternity is tricky as each brand within JCP maternity line varies by 1 and 2 sizes from another brand they carry within the category.

Rated 1 out of 5 by PGHmum Very uncomfortable
I purchased 3 of these shirts - 2 V-Necks and 1 scoop neck. I'm only 5'4'' and these shirts are way too short. I'm constantly yanking the shirt down so that you can't see the band on my maternity pants. Definitely do not dry these shirts. Also, with me being so short, the v-neck reveals too much cleavage for my taste. The scoop neck doesn't show as much cleavage, but its still not long enough.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DramaQ Very comfortable
these shirts are very comfortable. They are longer than the JCP brand maternity shirts so I am not as concerned about them getting too short in the next couple of months. I also like the waist band so even if the shirts do end up a tad short the waist band is thick enough that hopefully you won't see anything.

Rated 1 out of 5 by asans Too small, see-through
I ordered the heather grey and mint green shirts in my pre-pregnancy size. The green is completely see-through and they're both too small through the shoulders. I would exchange the gray for the next size up, but all they have is white and if the green is see through, the white definitely would be. Very disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by eliza801 Very feminine fit
I ordered two of these shirts, one in grey and one in white, and I LOVE THEM BOTH! The fit is great and really flattering. I hate drapy, boxy looking maternity shirts, and this is not one. I already feel huge (very pregnant), so it's nice to see some contour!

Rated 2 out of 5 by rbene material doesn't keep it's shape
Very cute cut, but the material stretches out very easily. The Neck line was much lower by the end of the day which is okay if you wear an undershirt. In my third trimester, in Louisiana, with temperatures 80 degrees +, I do not want to have to wear more layers of clothes.

Rated 3 out of 5 by melten Both good and bad qualities
The color, fabric and style of this item are all very nice; however, I do feel it was made small for its size. I bought many maternity shirts from several locations, and they all are the same size. This shirt is tighter than the rest, so I figured I'd wear it after I deliver.
