Rated 2 out of 5 by SunflowerFan Cute but Too Short in the Torso
Love the look, but this darling sailor shirt shrank in the torso and was too short! I gave the two I purchased to a friend who is smaller, but they were too short on her too!

Rated 3 out of 5 by gloria70 Beautiful color and nice material but strange fit
At 5'2 I usually order a petite L because of sleeve length but took a chance with the regular. It is more fitted than it looks so if your midsection is a problem area this one isn't for you. Sleeve length was great and it fell at top of hip so not sure you would like this if you are tall.The zip top covered my chin when I tried zipping it all the way. It is a beautiful color and nice material just not for me I guess. Gave it to my daughter.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Dinkmama Not typical LLBean quality
I received this shirt on Friday ... took it out of bag to wear it on Saturday and noticed just how poor quality the fabric was and the stitching is uneven all over the place. Returning in hopes of finding something of better quality with 1/4 zip.

Rated 2 out of 5 by fastpaced needs an upgrade
I ordered this top in my size, it fit great except for the length. All I have to do is raise my arms and my stomach shows. I love this top but not happy with the measurements. I urge LL Bean to change this and I will be first in line to get one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CaveatTalonWager What a gorgeous shirt!
I ordered this shirt in Clear Emerald and Turquoise and the color is gorgeous! I ordered my normal size and it fits like someone took my measurements and made the shirt just for me (that doesn't happen every day!). The shirt has a lovely contour that flatters people like me who have a small waist in relation to everything else.
The fabric is thinner than I expected, but is still very nice. I would not say that this shirt is "soft" but rather has more of a "gritty" texture to it, but that doesn't bother me. I am hoping that it doesn't shrink as it will then become too small. It can be difficult to determine a size when shrinkage can be an issue. I've not washed it yet, so the verdict is still out on that.
I gave this four stars rather than five because of the way the neck line hangs. Other reviewers reported it as "wrinkling like a piece of bacon" and I would agree, but ti appears that some of the shirts are worse in the regard than others. I order two shirts originally in two different sizes and the one that I kept was not as wrinkly in the neck as the other, but I still took spray starch to it and that did help some. BUT...neither shirt looks the same in the neck as in the picture on the website, so just be aware of that.
I would like to see LLBean fix the way the neck lies on this shirt and then it will be a SIX-STAR garment!

Rated 5 out of 5 by momof4gk Quality shirt!
I'm so pleased with my purchase, it fits true to size. I got a XS, I'm 125 lbs, 5.5. and it was on sale! It fits nicely, not clingy and not boxy. I'm going to order more while on sale.

Rated 3 out of 5 by No2Eagle Returning it
This one doesn't have any sort of peculiar smell and it fits well, but the fabric is a bit coarse so I am returning it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jojoayo Tip for Petite
This is the second one I buy in a different color. Since I am only 5 feet 1 inch, they were too long. I washed them in cold water and put them in the dryer. They came out streight and just the right length. This could be a solution until they are available in petite size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by rhymes Ready for Spring!
Love the Clear Emerald/Dark Turquoise stripe. It made me happy just to try on something that says, "Spring is coming!" This quarter-zip is a great wardrobe staple ... soft, comfortable, just right with an LL Bean vest when it's still too chilly to wear solo. I have the red/white stripe and other colors from previous years. They are easy care and the colors stay true. My oldest one is relegated to being worn for yard work because it's a little too well worn ... I've had it for years and can't make myself give it up. Thanks for a great shirt, LL Bean!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jojoayo Just perfect
I bought this sweater in Emerald color at the LL Bean store in October and I had so many compliments since, I just ordered the same in navy.
I usually ware Large in other companies, but this time the Medium is perfect.
