Expertly tailored women's dress shirts for your body shape
Women's tailored dress shirts designed to fit women of different heights and body shapes. Made of exclusive fabrics.
Our aim at Ella Hopfeldt is to create fitted dress shirts that flatter women's bodies. Our four distinct shirt fits are designed to fit and enhance the four main body shapes: triangle, rectangle, inverted triangle and hourglass. So whatever your height or body shape, you will look sleek and smart in an Ella Hopfeldt dress shirt.

Through experimentation and trial-and-error we have developed a set of beliefs about how the best women's dress shirts should look and feel. Now every shirt we make is a manifestation of these beliefs.
With Ella Hopfeldt shirts you get the following benefits:
Our tailored, fitted shirts come in 4 fits for different heights and body types. Find the fit that is perfect for you and look impeccable – a fitted shirt is always more flattering than the alternative.
Designed and produced in Europe, Ella Hopfeldt shirts are made with superior craftsmanship and attention to detail that elevates the shirts to a whole new level of comfort and style.
Details like collar and cuffs distinguish a high quality dress shirt. All Ella Hopfeldt shirts have reinforced collars and cuffs that makes these details firmer and crisper looking even when your day extends into night.
We work together with one of the world's leading manufacturers of shirt fabrics from Austria. All Ella Hopfeldt shirts are made of premium 100% cotton that lends the shirts an enjoyable and comfortable feel.
When the campaign is over, we'll send out a survey where you'll choose your fit, size and color. All shirts are available in 4 different fits for different heights and bodytypes.
The double cuff shirts come in two classic colors: white and light blue. Should we hit our stretch goal (€7.500) the navy blue double cuff shirt also becomes available.
The double cuff is twice as long as regular cuff and the material is folded back on itself (hence double) and closed with cufflinks.
Our white and light blue double cuff shirts are made of the finest herringbone twill which feels soft and luxurious against the skin and is easy to iron. Navy blue is also fine but without the herringbone weave.
Universal cuff shirts come in 3 designs: classic white, white with back details and white with red details. Universal cuffs include both button fastenings and cufflink holes to insert cufflinks, allowing for a seamless transition from day-to-night or from office-to-occasion in the blink of an eye.
Our universal cuff shirts are made of exclusive, wrinkle resistant Dry&Fly cotton (100%).
Our project goal is €5.000. Should we achieve €7.500 another design, a navy blue dress shirt with double cuffs, becomes available.
I'M IN! WHAT'S MY FIT AND SIZE?
The most important thing when buying a dress shirt is getting the proper fit and right size. At Ella Hopfeldt, we offer four carefully designed women’s dress shirt fits to help every customer find an ideal match for their body type: we call them Italian, German, French and Spanish fits.
Finding your perfect fit starts with your height:
- Are you of average height or taller (166–183 cm/ 5'5''–6'0'')? Your fit is either Italian or German depending on your bodytype.
- Are you of average height or shorter (155–166 cm/ 5'1''–5'5'')? Your fit is either French or Spanish depending on your bodytype.
Next step – determine your bodytype: are you a triangle, rectangle, inverted triangle or hourglass?
- Are you a triangle (your bust and/ or shoulders are smaller than hips, waistline is somewhat defined) or a rectangle (shoulders, bust and hips are around the same size, waistline is somewhat defined)? Your fit is Italian if you are taller and French if you are shorter.
- Are you an inverted triangle (bust and/or shoulders are wider than hips, waistline is well defined) or an hourglass (bust and hips are balanced, waistline is well defined)? Your fit is German if you are taller and Spanish if you are shorter.
Final step – find the correct size!
In order to pick out the perfect size for you, please measure yourself. The important measurements are bust, waist and hips. Compare your measurements with the appropriate size chart (according to your fit) and see which size fits you best. If you are between sizes, please choose the larger one.

Ella Hopfeldt brand was started by two women, Marion and Merit, both of whom love to wear dress shirts. What started as a personal need for classic, high quality, tailored shirts quickly grew into a strong desire to provide premium products to women all over the world.
The brand name is a tribute to our grandmothers, one of whom was named Ella and the other had a last name Hopfeldt.
