The elusive Holy Grail of women’s clothing—a flattering, well-fitting button-down shirt—is now available for women of all sizes, thanks to Rebecca & Drew and their unique TrioFit sizing formula.
A collaboration between alice + olivia co-founder Rebecca Matchett and ASP’s Drew Paluba, Rebecca & Drew has worked wardrobe magic with its TrioFit formula. Devised after a year of research and mass fittings in New York, Boston, and Philadelphia, the formula calculates sizes based on chest circumference, bra-cup size, and height—a winning trifecta for women's shirt proportions.
The popular centerpiece in the Rebecca & Drew line is the TrioFit shirt, a revamped button-down available in a range of pastels, pinstripes and polka dots. With a nipped waist, double buttons at the bust, and a contoured back, the TrioFit solves all your classic button-down woes, from boxy shapes to pulling and gapping. The brand has also expanded to included shirtdresses, skirts, and trousers—all of which offer a custom fit without the custom price. That's good news for everyone—except your tailor.
After separately designing their own lines of irreverent ready-to-wear clothing, alice + olivia co-founder Rebecca Matchett and Drew Paluba of ASP teamed up to tackle a ubiquitous office staple: the woman’s dress shirt. Bemoaning the ill-fitting proportions of standard button-downs, the pair set out to invent a flattering shirt for women of all sizes. After a year of development, they created the TrioFit sizing formula, which calculates shirt size based on chest circumference, bra-cup size, and height. The European fabrics change seasonally, and an array of solid-colored pastel, polka-dotted, and striped shirts are arranged on orderly shelves. The line’s best sellers are also its centerpieces: the TrioFit shirt in traditional and slim fit (which includes a nipped waist and contoured back), both with double buttons at the chest to prevent gapping.
