Rated 4 out of 5áby dogocentric A pleasant surprise
I like the slightly fitted fit of this top. I am 5'2" and weight 115, and ordered petite small. I wasn't expecting it to be so short, though it says hip length--there's no coverage at the bottom, but that makes it look very neat, with no baggyness. The neck and cuffs are exactly right; any bigger size and the sleeves would have been too long; any smaller and my hands would not have fit through and the neck would have been tight. After reading other comments, I think I will hand-wash it and air-dry. So overall I like it a lot. The fabric is very comfortable, and happily, after hugging the dog, it was very easy to brush the dog hairs off the black material.

Rated 3 out of 5áby LibertyHillLabs Don't like the taller neck of the newer mock-necks
It's been a couple of years since I have needed to replenish my supply of mock-necks. The ones currently available have great fabric weight and feel, which is why I buy LLBean tops. But the mock-neck appears to be significantly higher than the last time I bought them. I find the taller neck much less flattering than the lower mock-necks that I currently have. When I look down, the neck hits me in the chin. And because it is taller, it gaps more around the neck.
I bought one but couldn't stand the new neckline, so will wait until they hopefully redesign again and have a lower neck profile. If I wanted a neck that high I would buy a regular turtle-neck.

Rated 4 out of 5áby KMcGhee perfect fit
The mock-turtleneck fits perfectly. The color wasn't quite what it appeared to be online. It is about 2 shades brighter than what I was expecting, not bad, but if I had seen it in person I may not have gone with the Glen Green. Still, overall very pleased.

Rated 4 out of 5áby nfmoon Nice Tops
As soon as it starts getting chilly enough to wear mine I do....often. It's gotten to the point where I get pretty much all of my casual clothing from LLBean. Great selection of colors, just right amount of stretch, though not sure if the small amount of spandex is in all the choices. And the stretch never goes away. It's still in my older tops. They do shrink after a lot of washes and eventually instead of letting them line dry I start throwing them in the dryer and that adds to the shrinkage. But I still love them. I can wear them under another top and to go hiking it when there is a chill in the air but it's not really cold. I will keep buying them!

Rated 1 out of 5áby Evyy soft and colorfast, but shrunk too much
Bean mock turtles are soft, colorfast and comfortable. However, they shrink so much after a few washings that my wrists and waist are no longer covered. Your color selections are great - but I now go to the competition to buy my turtles. Many reviewers have raised this issue - perhaps a different fabric composition or offering them in tall sizes would be useful to your valued customers.

Rated 4 out of 5áby Yeti Nice Top but Sleeves Really Shrink
I bought several of these tops over a year's time. The fabric is very nice. Soft and just the right thickness. The drape and construction is very good. The colors are beautiful. However, the sleeves shrink a lot over multiple washings. I usually wear a medium but got large sizes to compensate for the shrinking. It didn't help. The sleeves are now slightly shorter than my preference.
I wear these as a layer now. Still pretty colors after the multiple washings. Not much fading.

Rated 4 out of 5áby coldincalif Size up indeed!
I read the reviews and decided to size up. Normal size is petite XL and I ordered 1X. After washing this, I compared it to the waffle henley I purchased from L.L. Bean (size is XL regular). I compared the two after washing both of them in the same load and they are EXACTLY the same size now. So yes it shrinks but I like it better than many of the L.L. Bean turtlenecks/mock turtlenecks that can be purchased.

Rated 3 out of 5áby SLactuary Great wear, but...
I usually LOVE anything LL Bean, but this mock neck falls short. By short I mean I barely come to 5'4" and the sleeves on my medium only reach to about one inch ABOVE my wristbone, although the shoulder seams are at exactly the right spot. If you are of "normal" confirmation, you may want to think about arm length.

Rated 3 out of 5áby adirondackee Shrinks like crazy
I ordered 2 of these shirts in medium and they fit perfectly but once washed it shrunk so much the sleeves were very short and the shirt uncomfortably short. I returned and purchased large - washed them and they are great. I like the colors and fabric is very nice.
