Rated 5 out of 5 by justmeinpennsylvania Beautiful!
I was surprised at the detailing, it's simply beautiful! If you love redwork needlepoint, the red dobby is for you! I did have to fix where the seamstress accidentally got a piece of material stuck in the seam while sewing, but since I'm an avid sewer, it was an easy fix. I love that it's very long which is how I think nightgowns should be. (I have the tartan plaid nightgown and feel it's a bit short, I'm 5'5")

I am not understanding the 'flannel' aspect complaints of this nightie. I received the redish one yesterday, immediately washed in very hot water and dried - the reason being - I ordered an XL - I for years and still do wear a medium in pretty much of LLBean's clothing - I do not like tight tops in anything so style pending, I would order a Large. After taking this nightie out of the dryer - having shrunk a tremendous amount - it is perfect - and that was an XL - it also has lost the 'cotton' feel that I've been reading about - it is soft and like a light flannel - mind you I never was a fan of those thick flannel pj's/nighties I wore as a kid - ugh! - but had no choice - also I think that old fashioned 'thick' flannel - would make this nightie resemble a Nanny McPhee gown.
The above being said, this is a great nightie to hang around in and of course, sleep in. I am going to order the blue one right now in XL, shrink it and love it. I thought about the creamish one, but read the best & hysterical review about the 'mustard color' too funny - hence the blue. Bottom line, shrink it and enjoy the softness of this particular blend of flannel. Amen.

I asked for the first gown I had as a gift several years ago. I liked it so much I bought another one for myself the following year. They have held up beautifully. I love the softness and durability of the fabric.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Teddy64 Buyer Beware
Yes, as others have noted, this nightgown is much thinner than the older version. I would not consider it flannel. Nevertheless it seems well made and fits well. My wife likes it and will keep it, although, she was hoping it was heavier. To me, it hurts the reputation of LLBean. Next time we will look elsewhere.

Rated 2 out of 5 by katie853 Not LLB Worthy
Had one of these gowns years ago when I was a smaller size, and was looking forward to having another one, so I ordered one in blue when they were on sale. Exchanged once for smaller size. While the gown is "voluminous", most of the volume is in the front, On the one I received, the front was also 2" longer than the back. Just looked strange, As for fabric, it is not flannel, but more like a challis. Sending it back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MplsKim Love this nightgown!
Great quality flannel. I've owned two in the past decade or so and am ordering a third. They last longer than any other brand I've bought. The sleeves are not tight (I hate tightness at the wrist). The regular length is perfect to stay warm (to the ankles and I am 5 ft. 5.5 in. tall). Lots of buttons down the front and tucking and striped pattern make it very vintage without looking dowdy. Hubby bought the first two for me; some guys do like flannel :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by MahJonggLilly Good looking
Most comfortable nightgown I've ever owned. For some reason it does not creep up around your neck. This might be due to the lovely pin tucking in the bodice. The gown is of very nice quality and not only looks good, but feels good. I am in the process of ordering another...........

Rated 5 out of 5 by AABEAN Perfect maternity and nursing
I bought this one size up for a maternity nightgown and it was perfect. Plus the deep placket meant I could use it after for nursing the baby at night while staying warm. And I still used it after as it is a lovely, cosy nightgown.

I own 2 of the light gown and 2 of the blue one and am on here to purchase the red one. I just love them. They are very soft and cozy. For me, size 2x, 5.7, The length is perfect and they are very roomy. A wonderfully comfortable gown. Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Milasu comfortable classic style
I read through a number of the comments made about these nightgowns before purchasing two of them just recently. A few people had mentioned that the flannel fabric wasn't as good as it had been in previous days. Perhaps not, but as a longtime seamstress and admirer of high quality materials and workmanship, I must say I couldn't be happier with these gowns. They are very well made, wash beautifully and are comfortable to wear both in and out of bed. I plan to buy more, including the blue one for myself, and others for a couple of sister-friends I'm sure will love them too.
