Orvis women's clothes are cut generously to accommodate the active, country lifestyle. In addition, we build plenty of “wearing ease” in all our garments to ensure you will enjoy them for many years. We field-test all our clothes on Orvis associates, and we take into consideration how the clothing will be worn. For example, when we fit women's outerwear, we always size it with the appropriate layers beneath. That means you do not need to order a size up for a comfortable fit.
Petite Clothing Sizes: We offer many of our Women’s styles in Petite lengths. Your height will determine which length you choose (5'4" and under). For the Petite trouser customer, we have reduced the rise measurement and inseam. In tops, dresses, and jackets, the sleeve length and body length have been reduced. For all styles, the body widths have been reduced slightly.
Comfortable, durable style for warm weather
Woven from the fibers of the flax plant, linen is both stronger and more absorbent than cotton. The structure of the linen fiber is hollow, so it draws heat and moisture away from the body, keeping you cool and comfortable on even the hottest summer days.
It’s been the ultimate warm-weather fabric for more than 10,000 years; linen weaving even pre-dates the invention of the wheel.
Flax is one of nature’s most efficient fibers; it becomes even stronger when wet. Linen will get softer over time and with each washing, but it will not weaken. This makes linen clothing surprisingly durable. Linen is also naturally hypoallergenic.
Our breezy Shoreline Linen trousers, shorts, and shirts are designed with a flattering style that’s perfect for warm weather—simple, comfortable, effortless.
