Rated 3 out of 5 by Birdlandlady More of a dressy option
I was looking for something basic; the fabric of this has a bit of a sheen and is a little thinner than I would like. It's a good option for layering for business or business casual type wear but feels too slinky for everyday for me. It's a good quality shirt, just not exactly what I was looking for. (If you feel the same way about fabrics, check out the "saturday" line...they're a little heftier and casual, though still not quite what I'd love to see.)

Rated 2 out of 5 by 790berme Upset and Disappointed!
I have been wearing pima tees in size 1X for years, buying new colors and replenishing old every several months. The shirts became a staple of my wardrobe. LLBean has now changed the fit from
"relaxed" to "slightly fitted". What a disaster. Those of us in plus sizes who need that room have been abandoned. And for what reason? Perhaps you could explain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ScotiaParisCanucks Pima Cotton T's Rock!!
This is the only cotton T-shirt I will order from now on!! I think I own about fifteen of them. I order one or two every few months. The fit is amazing, the colours beautiful, they feel soooo good on. These truly are the best kept secret!! I was afraid to comment on this because the prices may go up if the whole world starts ordering them!! I will order more, as soon as mine start looking old...which they haven't yet (even though I've washed them a hundred times, they look the same as the day I got them)!! : )

Rated 4 out of 5 by rockonllbean Nice shirt - just too short
I LOVE the pima cotton t-shirts as they are so soft and breathable. The problem is they barely hit my waist and they are not offered in a tall or medium tall. I've stopped buying them because they are just too short which is the case for many LL Bean women's tops. I buy men's t's and they are a little tight across the chest. It would be wonderful if this was offered in a longer version as myself and other women I have talked to cannot wear these as they end up being a bit of a mid drift and I am 5'6". But the quality is great and you can not beat the 100% satisfaction guarantee! Could you make them in tall for some of us in just the basic colors - black, white, blue and perhaps a pink? I think you would sale more of them.

Rated 3 out of 5 by PeaceMom Great fabric, nice colors!
I deducted 2 stars because the neck is so large in the plus sizes. I hope designers someday figure out that plus sized women do not have necks like football players. Otherwise, this is a top quality shirt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Indago Great Petite T
Petite Pima Cotton T short sleeve crewneck fits great! Material almost wash and wear! Purchased several colors. Would like more colors for petite sizes such as: Rich Royal Blue or a Rich Colbalt Blue, a Rich Rasberry, Orange, Peach, Navy etc. Would like to see the same petite pima cotton T in v-neck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BoiseNoise Wish they were still around!
I ordered one of these t-shirts a couple of months ago, and it fits better than any other tee in my closet. The relaxed fit actually has space for my middle-aged, poochy stomach, and the Petite length looks fabulous! I really wish I had picked up more while they were still available. Sure do hope Llbean brings back this cut again. Their website touts the slightly fitted tees as being their "most popular," but that cut just doesn't work for some of us!

Rated 4 out of 5 by AyJay Careful...they shrink
I love these T shirts. I love the feel and the fit. I washed two of them in cold water and hung them up to air dry in the laundry room off the kitchen. That morning, I received another one in white I had ordered. (I order a Petite Medium). I spread out the air dried one the counter and measured from back neck to bottom. It was 20 and one half inches. Then I measured the new one that had just arrived in the mail. It was 22". So I know for a fact, they shrink. In my case, this is not a problem as I hemup many T shirts. But a tall woman might have a problem. Just be aware when ordering. Other than this problem, Mrs Lincoln, I can wear the newly laundered T shirt without ironing. They are wonderful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RIYogaGirl Well Made Tops
I have several of the pima cotton tees (short and long sleeve). They are well made and wash well. I use them for sleep shirts and layering shirts. These shirts run a bit fitted, which is fine for layering shirts, but I recommend going up a size if you want to wear this shirt by itself.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ElizaA Please make this tee longer in length
I have to agree with a number of other reviewers -- the material and workmanship of these tees is wonderful; however, even when washed in cold and hung to dry, THEY SHRINK. Very frustrating. This makes them way too short, even for someone who is proportional like me. Another 3 or even 4 inches in length would be great.
Doesn't anyone make a longer pima cotton top? LLBean, you'd be an answer to a million shopper's prayers if you could get this part right. Please give it a shot for the next possible season. Thanks!
