Lovely quality and great service

I have just received my new shirt and the quality is excellent. I'm also impressed with the fit. I am a Medium with a D cup bust so shirts often gape at the buttons over the bust even though they fit waist, back, arms etc. This shirt fits me perfectly and I also like the button position which sits right on the point that your bra starts - you can leave it unbuttoned enough to be sexy but it's subtle because it doesn't show the bra. I love the little fabric sample that comes with the shirt too - what a fab idea! I decided to change the colour of the shirt I ordered and Sophie swapped it for me with exceptional speed and efficiency. Thank you!

Lovely to hear this Katrina. Thank you for writing this review. We're pleased you liked our fabric swatches as well.

Excellent customer service and love the pure white

I recently received excellent customer service with the Fable. I had an issue with the shirt I ordered and the Fable went out of their way to rectify the issue for me. In addition, I love the polka dot black and white shirt. The white is a pure white (as opposed to cream) which I have found is hard to find. I have pale skin and cream coloured silk only washes me out.

Lovely to hear. Thanks for sharing your experience Laura.

Excellent fit & easily washable

I've purchased many a silk shirt before from Country Road and the like. And I can honestly say The Fable shirt fits better and has lasted longer than any other. Other than a great fit, I love that I can hand wash, not iron and it comes up perfectly, not loosing any of it's lustre. The classic designs also means I've had my Fable original for a few years now and it remains as relevant as ever.

Great to hear - thanks for the feedback. We hope you enjoy shirts.

Best silk shirts out!

I’ve got a few Fable shirts now and I won’t be stopping there. They’re great quality (at a fab price) and every new season there are more to tempt me!
Love! Xxx

Love the new patterns but not perfect for the price

I already own a size S in the old/discontinued sleeveless style (still sad that you’re not making sleeveless anymore!) and I love it but I could tell if it had sleeves the shoulders wouldn’t sit right. So when the new styles came out I ordered 2 long sleeves in a size M. (For reference I am usually a size 10 in shirts but I am tall and have a 12C chest). They arrived today!! The sleeves are just right but now it’s a little baggy around the middle. I think that the new material feels more polyester-y than the previous style and the bottom button ends way too high - it’s above the waist band height of anything that’s not a full high waisted pant, so I have these long flaps of shirt at the bottom. Guess I’ll just always have to tuck them in. They are super wrinkly out of the packaging but I’m hoping it will smooth out in the wash (although your product description says crease-resistant)... Just doesn’t quite feel right for the price.

Hello Kerry, thank you very much for writing this review. Your feedback is valued and helpful. The two shirts you ordered were from our new range, The Fable 2.O Collection. The fabric is now a crepe de chine (from Shanghai) instead of Indian crepe so you will notice a difference in the hand feel and fall of the shirt. In regards to the button positioning, you will find the bottom front button sits slightly higher than shirts in our previous range. Feedback from customers was that they preferred a more relaxed fit and in order to facilitate this we moved the button up slightly so not to constrict the fit around the hips. While our shirts are crease resistant, after having been sent overnight in a box folded they will have a crease line which is unavoidable. If you would like to exchange or return your order, please keep in mind we have an easy returns policy. Once again, thank you for taking the time to write this review, we appreciate all feedback from our customers.

Gorgeous shirts!

I purchased the Poker Face shirt and absolutely love it - so comfortable, great fit and I LOVE that it launders so well and doesn't need ironing! I will definitely be investing in more colours.

Great to hear this Victoria. Thanks very much for sharing your feedback.

My new silk shirt go-to

I love the feel and look of my fable shirts. All the colours I have are beautiful, and the silk is really lovely quality. The shirts are a great fit, I love that I can wear them to work and also out at night or the weekend. Unlike other silk shirts, the fable silk does not crease. Highly recommended!

Thanks for the feedback Emily. Great to hear all of this!

Love my Fable shirts

I liked my first Fable silk shirt so much that I ordered another one in a different colour for myself and one for my daughter. We both love them. They are great for travel as they don't crease too much and are easy to wash. The ethical manufacturing is a bonus. I definitely recommend this company.

Lovely to hear - thank you Fiona. We hope you and your daughter enjoy your shirts.

Got my shirt in deep sea blue - love it!

The other reviews here are all true. Fable were delightful to deal with and very very fast. Shirt looks great, feels great, sizing is accurate. I decided to put it through its paces and just wore it on a 4 hour coach trip complete with a nap. No wrinkles, looks great at the other end. Love it!

Great to hear - thanks Marian.

Gorgeous, easy care shirts.

Love these shirts - look classy, easy to rinse and wear and priced extremely competitively. Bonus that comes packaged like a present and is delivered quickly. Initially supported the company for their ethical social contribution in caring for their workers, will be buying many more for the quality.

My Fable shirts arrived promptly and are gorgeous, I love the length and the high quality finish of the product. I would definitely recommend this to friends and the discount for the second shirt was a bonus.

Love my silk shirt.

I like clothes I can put on and forget, so my black long sleeved silk Fable shirt is perfect for me. It always looks classy. I had to change my size and it was no problem to return and I received the next size very quickly. So very easy to deal with Fable and can happily recommend them.

Beautiful Silk Shirts

I wholeheartedly recommend shirts from the Fable. They are flattering and elegant, well made with quality silk and a great fit. I ordered two shirts was impressed with the quick delivery, and was able to exchange one of the shirts with no problem. Thanks.

Lovely feedback - thank you for sharing this. We're so pleased to hear you're enjoying your shirts!

No other silk shirt compares

I absolutely adore the long sleeve shirts. I ordered 5, one for each day of the work week, and will be ordering 5 more once my size is back in stock. The colours are so vibrant, and the fit is classic. The feel of the fabric is very soft and luxurious. The service received from Sophie was excellent and very quick delivery too. Thank you xo

Thank you very much for the feedback. You will have a line up of our silk in your wardrobe. We hope the shirts have made a nice addition to your working wardrobe.

So impressed

I purchased two sleeveless shirts in navy and pink. Excellent quality, excellent service (quickest delivery ever). I'm officially obsessed and would buy every colour if they weren't sold out right now. They will make an excellent basic. Thanks The Fable.

Thank you Tamara! We're pleased to hear all of this and sorry we don't have all our sleeveless shades in stock for you. We hope your two are enjoyed!

I'm a convert

Great overall experience at The Fable. I'd been eyeing off their shirts for a while and sent my details through straight away when I saw they offered samples of the fabric/colours.
I received my shirts yesterday (ordered last Friday) and the packaging is so beautiful and delicate, I didn't think there were two shirts in the box! I tried them on straight away and I've never had such well fitting shirts. I'll definitely be getting a lot of wear out of them.
Best customer service I've experience in quite a white - thankyou Sophie!! I'm sure I'll be back soon xx

Thank you Maddy. Great to hear you enjoyed The Fable shirt and experience. We hope you enjoy the piece.

Amazing customer experience

I cannot rave enough about my experience with purchasing my first The Fable shirt. It arrived promptly with the most gorgeous packaging. The colour and cut are perfect. So flattering and the shirt is long enough so I can tuck into my jeans without it popping out. Love it xx

Questions & Answers

Hi, just wondered if the sizes have changed recently.. Bought 2 size M shirts a few months ago that fit great, but a recent purchase of an M has me swimming in the shirt? Please advise. Thanks.
1 answer
Hello, thanks for reaching out. We haven't changed our sizing although our fabric has changed slightly so depending on when you placed your last order, this could be why you're noticing a difference. We have easy exchanges and returns so please send us an email at info@thefable.com.au and we can find a solution for you :) Jessica

Hi there! is the white spot or rose quartz colour transparent?
1 answer
Hello Lana, Dalmatian isn’t transparent however we recommend wearing a nude bra with Rose Wuartz as it has a degree of transparency. Very best, Jessica

I'm thinking of buying the new T-Shirt in white but wondering how see-through, can I wear it with a nude bra and that wouldn't show?
2 answers
Hi Evas, You can. If you wear a nude or white bra underneath it will not be visible. Let me know if I can further assist. JessicaI wore it without a singlet (beige bra) for my first wear and felt exposed at work. I feel like I need a singlet under the white shirt.
