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")

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DocA Fits regular misses true to size once shrinks
Soft, light flannel, stripes line up nicely front/back at shoulders. Barberry is as deep (almost red) as looks in picture; very nice. I did not feel it was large for size at size 8 (I run 8-10). With cold water wash and hot dryer it shrunk 1.5 inches in length so that it falls mid-calf, not ankle (I'm 5'6", 135 lb). The shrinkage also slightly raises where the end of the front pleats are, which might not be flattering for a larger bust. The sleeves did not shrink that much but I have long arms and would actually prefer the sleeves slightly longer. The neck when buttoned is slightly snug even for my thin neck but top button is also sewn on a little awry so will move it over. Decent room under arms so have elected not to go up a size. Would have been better quality had they pre-shrunk the fabric.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KMyers Exceptional quality, excellent fit for 2X
Beautifully made with great attention to detail. The fit is great, which is not something I can often say about a 2X.
SUGGESTIONS FOR IMPROVEMENT
1) How about one or two in-seam pockets?
2) Oh, how I wish this came in more colors with less of the grandmother element... (that blue especially). I would particularly like to see (in order):
A) Charcoal gray
B) Black with white embroidery
C) Dark lavender
D) Dark red
E) Dark green
F) Dark slate blue
If this ever happens, wouldn't it be grand if LLBean contacted me?
