Rated 5 out of 5 by IMA10 Great Tee shirt
I absolutely love these button-front shirts. I have them in many colors and they look great year after year. I just update them because each year there are new and beautiful colors. Washed very well and feels so soft. Highly recommend this!

Rated 1 out of 5 by FLAGWOMAN WHAT HAPPENED TO THIS ITEM IN A PLUS SIZE??
I am giving this a one star rating only in hopes of catching the attention of the LL Bean folks to ask them why they stopped making this in Plus Sizes. I have this item and its matching Tee in many colors and wear it as my go-to outfit paired with a skirt or pair of pants. I am able to be comfortable and put together looking, yet casual. This is such a great item! Please, please bring it back for us plus-sized gals!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Doosenbury Use as cardigan instead of "shirt"/plus szs plz!
I own one and have ordered 2 more open Pima cardigans in plus size. I wanted to order this one, but it doesn't come in my size! Please stock this item in Plus Sizes! It would look more flattering than the open cardigan which is very full in cut with large,almost shawl-like, lapels down the front, making me look larger than I already am! I love it, but it's true. It makes me look bigger! This button-front "shirt" is more close fitted, so it shouldn't exaggerate the figure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by webgal318 Can be used as a cardigan too!!!
I initially bought the "Brightwater" blue one several years ago as a cardigan because it was displayed on a model wearing the long sleeve shirt layered over the sleeveless version of the shirt. I have been looking for a pink cardigan just like the shirt described above for quite some time and I finally found it! The "pink hydrangea" color is the prettiest shade of pink I have in my wardrobe. I am only 5 feet tall and it would be great to have this item in petite sizes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Pstew Plus Sizes PLEASE!!
This is one of my favorite wardrobe pieces. I have purchased many different colors over the years. It's very disappointing that you have decided to discontinue the plus sizes. I echo many other customers who are saying, please bring plus sizes back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by closetothecoast Great shirt
I have 4 of these shirts. I like separates rather than outfits, so these can be worn with anything and can be worn year round.

Rated 5 out of 5 by woodruff A superb tee!
I got the first of these button-front tees not long ago, and find the quality of the garment just astounding!
The black color is rich and dark and holds up to washing. The fabric is soft and smooth, and has not shrunk at all, even with (gentle) machine washing and drying.
I am not quite five feet four inches tall, broad-shouldered and a bit bosomy, and size Medium fits me perfectly, without straining anywhere. The tee is cut to flatter a real woman, I think, and skims problem 'bits' very gracefully.
The only quibble I might have is that the black tee does have pale buttons. Considering how dressy this top actually could be, I think black buttons would be nicer. But this is a very minor detail on an otherwise very nice garment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TKnTexas Love button-front Pima shirts--PETITES PLEASE!
I own a couple of these button-front shirts, finding they are such a great buy because I can wear them to work all 4 seasons in Texas. Keeping it from being 5 stars is that they don't come in petite sizes and I have to add a $12 alteration fee to the cost for shortening the sleeves 2-3 inches, which makes it a pricey cotton shirt--unless on sale. Also, they come in so few bright, fun colors like tomato red, coral/orange, sunny yellow, lime green, cobalt blue; also, a basic dark brown would be great. I would love to have more of these shirts, but many colors are often out of stock in my size. I sized up to XL the last time so I could comfortably layer a shirt under and it is plenty roomy without looking sloppy--am a full-bodied 5'3", 36DD on top, and usually wear size 16 petite. These shirts launder pretty well, although I find safest to lay out and stretch and block while damp and then hang to dry to keep the original size and shape and the placket from looking wavy.

Rated 2 out of 5 by fortwaynebuyer Warning - fit has changed
I loved these when they came in relaxed fit - I have all the colors in cardigans and shells. Now the fit has changed to "slightly fitted" along with several other items I used to buy regularly from LL Bean. You need to watch closely. Filters for items with relaxed fit will result in items that have moved to slightly fitted.
Moving on to another brand now for the things I love with a sizing made for real people. Who the heck did they interview for this switch on sizes / fits? Not dedicated customers that is for sure.
And there is nothing to tell you what size to buy to get the fit you really like. So if I bought something in misses L relaxed fit - what size is that in slightly fitted that they've moved on to?
I will continue to look at things that come in some realistic fits, as I do love LL Bean. But I expect it will be dropping off the list if this keeps up as I like clothing appropriate for work - not teenager or nightclubbing fits.
