Rated 5 out of 5 by Kashib More colors
I love the pima cotton tees. They retain their shape and size and last FOREVER! Very stain resistant. My wish......to have a greater selection of colors that are currently popular such as lime green, orange and turquoise. Also, all colors should be available in women's sizes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JerseyGal Good...It didn't shrink
After reading all the reviews about smaller sizes and shrinkage, I was hesitant to order this shirt. But I did, and I have worn it, washed it by hand and by machine, dried it on the line and in the dryer, and found no shrinkage, This is a nice shirt and even though it isn't a petite size which I usually choose, the fit is fine and I love wearing it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by LovetoKayak Very nice, but run small
I posted a review of the crew neck version, but I'll reiterate what I wrote.
The size medium in this shirt has virtually the same measurements as the size small I have ordered in past years. I checked as soon as I received the size medium version as it looked smaller than I expected.
I am 5'6", 135 lbs., and measure 36" in the bust and 38" in the hips. The medium is none too large and, in fact, I will not risk putting it in the dryer as I don't want it to shrink.
So if you are used to ordering small in the pima cotton shirts, you might try a medium this time around. The sizing is definitely less roomy and shorter than it used to be.
I wish LLBean would keep the sizing more consistent from year to year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Blossomdfw My go-to shirt
I started out ordering 2 shirts and loved them so much, I've ordered almost every color and wear them everywhere. I am a plus sized woman and always worry with t-shirts that the bottom of the shirt will shrink and not give enough coverage. These do not! One reviewer mentioned they were having wrinkle problems. I have one tip that has worked for me. Wash them, then place them in the dryer for 10-12 minutes. Afterwards, hang them up to dry. They are so light, they will dry quickly and I have yet to see a wrinkle.

Rated 3 out of 5 by BeachRabbit Pretty and soft but too short
These are beautiful, soft, well made T-shirts. But I only kept one of three that I purchased because I'd washed that one. The length shrunk considerably. I can still wear the shirt but it can't be tucked into pants comfortably now. Beautiful colors. Hope that LL Bean sizes them taking into account shrinkage, or comes out with the same in tall. If you are petite, 5'2 or under, this is a must have. Does not work for me at 5'6.

Rated 4 out of 5 by chapelhellian More colors needed
I've yet to find a white t-shirt for summer that doesn't show through, but this one comes close.
These should all be on sale when your stock is so low that most of the colors are unavailable. Today, for instance, several items offer only black and white in plus sizes. Bean's should keep offering emerald green.
This t-shirt with "perfect fit pants" is my gym uniform.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Doosenbury Love the look, love the feel, love the fit!
The title says it all! I'm very well pleased with this top. So much so that I ordered several others in different colors! They have become my favorite things to wear this summer.

Rated 3 out of 5 by activellBeanGirl Lovely, but....
The color is beautiful and the fabric is soft. However, I've noticed that any spot you get on them does not come out in the wash, even if you treat it immediately. Also, all the t- shirts shrink in length, to the point where they will not stay tucked in my pants. I certainly can't wear the pima Ts with my low waist jeans!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Irene70 This top is a warm red, not a cool red
In case you are the type of person who looks best in either warm or cool colors, it is useful to note that this tee is a warm (orangey) red, not a cool (bluish) red.

Rated 2 out of 5 by cicerogeronimo GETS HOLES! WILL NOT BUY AGAIN
THE FABRIC GETS SMALL HOLES AND COMES OUT OF THE DRYER WRINKLED. WILL NOT BUY AGAIN. THIS FABRIC USED TO BE BEAUTIFUL. I'VE BOUGHT MANY OVER THE YEARS, AND HAD NO TROUBLE. I AM SAD THAT BEAN HAS LOWERED IT STANDARDS - BUT NOT ITS PRICES.
