Rated 5 out of 5 by cvgjax So soft
These are my new go-to tees.
During a recent sale, I bought Bean's 3 types of tees to compare:
The Pimas are the softest, lightest and shortest. A slightly dressier look than the others. I am 5'3, and the Regular length fits me fine.
The Bean Tee is slightly heavier but still very soft. It has a ribbed crew neck vs the Pima self-fabric neck. tt was the longest of the 3.
The Carefree tee went back. It is jersey fabric rather than interlock like the others, so it wasn't as soft or stretchy. It didn't fit as well around the shoulders,and the sleeves felt shorter than the others.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Goddess5 Smaller neck opening
I have a closet full of LL Bean pima tees. However, I had to return the two crewneck short sleeve tees I just ordered because the crewneck is much smaller (and therefore tighter) than the previous ones. I am very disappointed because I love these tops.

Rated 2 out of 5 by CallMePicky Great Fabric But Poor Cut
I have several Bean pima tees in short sleeve, long sleeve, 3/4 sleeve and turtle neck. The fabric is silky smooth but the cut is just not right. They are all cut too short, too wide at the bottom, and too skimpy across the shoulders. I'm 5'5" tall and 110 lbs. and I have a hard time keeping these tucked in to jeans that sit at the waist. They are too boxy and wide at the bottom to wear them without tucking them in. And they are not wide enough across the shoulders so the seems don't lay at the right place. Soooooo disappointing! Please make these several inches longer, narrower at the bottom, and wider across the shoulders so the shoulder seams sit in the right place.

Rated 2 out of 5 by SeattleShopper54 TOO SHORT!
This Tee is made from wonderful fabric that doesn't cling, but it's a good 1-2 inches too short! And I'm only 5'4''. Also, the 'True Navy' color is very light for navy - closer to royal blue.

Rated 4 out of 5 by PennName soft fabric, very short length, 1X longer than XL
I love the soft fabric and nice neckline (nicer than a regular T-shirt). Nice thick fabric (not see-through). I can wear it to work easily.
The XL is short. Much shorter than many of my other T-shirts. I also got the 1X size, and those are about 2 inches longer than the XL. The 1X seems to be about 2 inches wider across the bust and waist also. (but call LL Bean for exact differences if it matters to you)
I wish the 1X came in as many colors as the XL. I'm not sure if I would order the XL again due to its shortness (even if I lose weight).
This was the first time I ordered from LL Bean, and I was very happy with delivery and everything.

Rated 1 out of 5 by wishicouldorder very disappointed
I actually love these shirts and have ordered many of them. I need some now. There is not one color in the current lineup (as opposed to neutral black and navy) that I can wear. I am very fair, very blonde and "of a certain age," as the French say. Those colors all wash me out. Some of us do not wear pastels, even in summer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by kawool GREAT T SHIRT
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these shirts. They are soft and glide easily over my bumps and curves w/o accentuating those unsightly areas! They fall to just hip level, so I love that they are not too long. The only reason I didn't put 5 stars is because of the limited color selection...no RED/NAVY in plus sizes...imagine that! Please make these in more colors!!!! (I am 69 years old, 5'5 and unfortunately overweight....)

Rated 4 out of 5 by activeCTmom Lovely petite dressy t-shirt
I have shorter legs and dislike long tshirts, and have been hunting for a petite short sleeve shirt with a decent neckline and short, not cap sleeves -- this is it!! I'm 5'4", 122 lbs and got a petite small, which fits perfectly except the arm holes are not overly roomy.
How about more colors like Dark Purple, Lime Green, and a brighter blue ??

Rated 3 out of 5 by RetiredAF Need both relaxed fit & slightly fitted & longer
This tee is made from the most wonderful fabric. I love it!!! It is so popular, LL Bean would be wise to make it in both relaxed fit, slightly fitted and plus size for all of their shoppers. Same for the long-sleeve tee. And please, please make it longer. The tee shrinks as one would expect from 100% cotton, but then it is way too short! I love this tee but won't be buying it anymore unless it is made longer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Yisunah Great SHORT teeshirt!
I ordered this teeshirt specifically because of all the reviews noting that it is too short and shrinks up in the dryer. For reference I am 5'1", 110 lbs, and often even Petite sizes are too long for me - I do not have slim hips, so many knit cotton shirts bunch up above my hips and are bulky when tucked in. I washed (warm water) and dried (warm setting) the shirt and it did shrink up about an inch - for me an improvement! (Be warned if you don't want this!) This tee pairs well with dressier skirts and slacks as well as with more casual bottoms, the cotton is soft, and the colors are lovely - I plan to order a couple more in Petite XS.
