Rated 2 out of 5 by Woolsocker Unbuttons too easily!
While wearing this item the buttons unbuttoned constantly so I had to rebutton parts of it every time I stood up or sat down. And having the "separation part" on the private area constantly open was a bother to say the least. On a good note, it is extremely warm which I was very happy with! But the next minute it would come unbuttoned and the cool draft would come in on your chest and then a cool draft would come in the other way and cool down other areas... I had wanted on of these for years and when I finally relented to pay the high price, and for the warmth it's worth it, I was very unhappy with the construction. Returning it and will not replace with the same item.

Rated 4 out of 5 Warm
This is so warm and comfortable! It falls short of 5-star rating due to it being just a tad too short in the body. Not uncomfortably short, but enough that I don't want to wear it all the time. The spread-apart slit in the back is okay but not my favorite design. I think I'd rather have a flap.

Now in it's 5th year, I live in the suit most winters. Was a gift in size large and I'm a fluctuating size 6-10 so it fit HUGE at first. However, I have since methodically shrunk it to fit snug in the arms and, albeit a little short in the legs, if right out of the dryer. Now I will likely hang it to dry the remainder of it's life. It is warm without feeling weighty, and it's itch free for realz. Those who felt it was rough, c'mon ppl, lower your expectations and launder. After only a few washings, the fabric softened nicely yet the fabric kept it's integrity, which isn't often the case. I am never cold or chilled and have been able to lower my thermostat at night sleeping under primaloft blanket wearing only this. For doggy walks, or low aerobic activities, this suit warms well, for higher aerobics, like skiing, or frigid runs/cycling, you do not need much more than a wind layer to keep you perfectly content - all without the midsection gap chill, so motion is never restricted by cold breezes. One layer warmth with no exposed skin or tummy means nice neat top layers too. I will don a thin wool tank or henley on coldest of cold (below 0-15) but even if just slouching on the couch, I never want to take it off. Would be a 5-star rating if only the button flap were effective. Didn't read all the way through the description of this latest version, so maybe it has improved. But my version, the flap has one lonely button to keep a rather enormous flap closed. This was poorly conceived as the only way to secure a rather large, chill producing area of the suit and from day one, it has never sealed correctly - or without gaps/window to the goods. Now in it's 5th yr and not a hole or frayed seam to be found, I'm ready to bring it to the seamstress for alteration of this flap...snaps perhaps? Whether lounging or cross country skiing, this is an LLB high quality piece which I consider a lifetime investment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GardenBirdDog Women's Union Suit
Gave one as a gift to a family member who is always cold. She LOVED it so much, not wanting to take it off when at home, that we quickly gifted her with a second suit in a different color!
PS, her young granddaughter was so enamored of Grandma's special suit that we got her a matching one.

This is my first women's union suit and I am very happy with the way it fits and feels. I've had men's union suits from LLBean before and loved them but this version fits my slender frame perfectly without being baggy, bunchy or tight. I chose the pink heather color and I love it. I wear this suit around the house and then slide some jeans on over it to go outside. I recommend the union suit for lounging and outdoor activities.

Not real tight fitting but it is cute and warm at night as PJs.

Rated 3 out of 5 by DCBarooo Itchy!!!!
This product would be five-stars perfect if it weren't for such an itchy material. Rather than wool, would love if LLBean offered in either all cotton or cotton/silk blend.
I purchased a Small which fits right (size 6) however the material is just too rough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TwinsfortheWin Great product, as expected!
I just received this item in the mail and I love it. I bought it with the intention of wearing it as pajamas in the house and for cold weather camping trips. The fabric is thin, it is not a waffle knit, but is well made and very warm without the bulk of waffling. I bought the pink and I think it's cute. It is a union suit, however, and does not contribute to a modern silhouette. I couldn't imagine wearing this under any sort of normal clothing, but I do think it would be a comfortable layer to wear under bib overalls (snow pants) on the ice for ice fishing season or for snowmobiling. The fit could be improved. When I ordered, I thought the picture gave the impression of a short torso; and indeed it is. I was almost tempted to exchange it for a men's, but decided that I really like the pink. The sleeves are longer than they need to be, but the wrist cuffs do a fair job of holding them up. The leg length is fine. Overall, a great product- but if you are long torsoed and large busted, consider your sizing options as the torso is short.

This union suit is wonderfully soft, warm, and fits great as a pj. The ribbed wrists and ankles prevent the fabric from bunching up during the night and allowing cold spots. Yes, the button holes are a tiny bit big, but not so much so that the buttons pop open... It just makes unbuttoning easier. I love my red union suit and will buy another, just wish it came in a color other than pink. I bought my husband one for Christmas.
