The Great Shirt Hunt Returns (chapter 4)

Finding crisp cotton shirts in feminine colours that button all the way up and down!

RB Sellars and RM Williams are two Australian stores stocking modest women's shirts. I managed to get hold of a catalogue from each company and am thrilled at what's available. Today we'll look at RB Sellars. Next week we'll look at RM Williams. - superior clothing in premium fabrics at affordable prices.

RB Sellars is keen to extend its market into New Zealand and to this end have a New Zealand web address which immediately redirects you to the Australian website where all items are listed in Australian dollars. The good news is that they are offering free shipping until 30 June 2011. This is worth taking advantage of.

Without the need to figure in shipping cost, you can get a 100% cotton Sandy Workshirt (half placket, shaped hem) for A$39.90 (NZ$53.46) or any 3 for A$105 (NZ$140.69), which is NZ$46.90 each, almost half the price of an similar RM Williams shirt available from NZ Farmlands stores. Band together with your sisters or girlfriends and you could get yourselves a bargain.
You can get a shaped (tailored) Lorin or Pearl 100% cotton shirt in pretty stripes or checks for A$59.90 (NZ$80.26) or any 2 for A$100 (NZ$134). I applaud the close proximity of buttons on the placket (except the Davies Twill style) which should ensure that you don't provide bust- or tummy-exposing peepholes as you move.
You can get a plain pastel Rebecca Casual Shirt for A$45 (NZ$60.30) or any 2 for A$80 (NZ$107.20). These too feature a positive button rate.

If you like to dress in a sporty, casual style, the Clara Rugby and Sarah Rugby offer a modest, comfortable option in feminine colours. A$59.90 (NZ$80.26) or any 2 for A$110 (NZ$147.39).

Workshirts, rugby shirts, polos, and tees are available for girls up to size 12. Also short-sleeved shirt styles for women.
Last but not least, the Sally Casual Long Sleeve Shirt is A$45 (NZ$60.30) or any 2 for $80 (NZ$107.20). With a choice of 3 pastel shades, it's pretty and practical and, like the work shirts, good for hiding tummy bulges.

Apart from the knit rugby shirts, polos, and tees, all these shirts are 100% cotton. In other words, think'll crinkle. You won't look as pristine as these models, but you'll be just as comfortable.
