Rated 3 out of 5 by capecodeasy why is LL Bean changing the old stand by tees?
I have been buying this tee for years. I still have the first one faded but in great condition. The second ordered tees were lighter material and all developed holes around the seams but they lasted a long time so time for more. The new ones came and were 4 inches smaller around the xl bust! What's up with that! Disappointed by LL Bean again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Northern123 The Ultimate top!
This is such a great top! I love the silky feel and weight. It's perfect for any day, anytime, anywhere. I can cook all day, go to a meeting, shop, go biking or even go on a night out with a great necklace and bracelet in this top!
I'm a size 12 (pear shape) small shoulders, 5'-2" and the large is perfect, just enough drape. Very slimming and just right in length.
I don't like bagginess and like classic clothing so, this fits my taste.
The boatneck is Extremely flattering for anyone and I do lean towards the blues but, I picked up a couple of fun colors on those fun mood days.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Imalimabean What changed?
I had purchased these shirts in the past and loved them. This year I ordered 3 more. NOT THE SAME SHIRT ANYMORE!! The neckline is off, the length is too long, and the material is too clingy. Very disappointed in a product I thought I could count on for comfort and good style. Bring back the old shirt!

I loved this shirt the first time I wore it, it fit pretty well and looked nice. Unfortunately, the first time I wore it, it shrunk an inch in overall length, and in the sleeve length also. I washed it in cold water, dried gently on low. Have had the same experience with LLBean turtlenecks 2 years ago, they shrank so much I could not wear them.

Rated 1 out of 5 by flowerchild48 Something is wrong with the cut!
I usually love the items I purchase at Bean. This shirt is the exception. Like others who wrote a review I was disappointed in the fit of this shirt. I ordered an extra small, but the sleeve seemed to be made for an extra large and looked almost like a raglan sleeve at the top.. Very uncomfortable as it pulled whole shirt askew. The hydrangea pink color was very pretty, but this shirt is being returned.

I don't know what they have done to the neckline of this tee but it just doesn't fit anymore. I have bought these same tees several years running but this year, they don't fit right. First, I got my normal size medium and found it was very awkward to wear with the shoulders and neckline feeling snug. I then ordered size large and it is no better. The neckline kind of sticks up now with the shoulders being narrower than they were which creates an odd fit. Too bad as I loved these tees in the past and am still wearing some of my old ones.

Why, why, why don't you offer these in petite sizes? Love them but they are too long for a shorter person. They are almost like tunics on me.

I purchased two of these tops in yellow and warm red. Nice fit and neckline. Pre washed both. The yellow is fine, but the red color rub off on my bra and I can't get it out. This one will be returned.

This shirt was among my first order of Bean's Pima tees, and I am very glad to have found them. They fit well, if a little snug in the arm, so I'm glad I went up a size. The neckline is not too wide as I feared, and even after washing and drying (ten minutes then hung) there was no shrinking and no wrinkles. I ordered the jadeite which was an ok color. not as muted as I'd hoped. It looked more like a sage on my screen. The fabric is so soft and drapes beautifully, but I did notice that any bit of moisture, like a few raindrops, spread like mad and look terrible, at least til they dry, hence the four stars. Perhaps the darker colors don't have that issue. I will buy many more!

The shirt itself is very nice. I liked the style, and the fabric is wonderful. However, it doesn't fit right. Based on the other reviews, I ordered both a medium and a large. The large was too big, especially under the arms like some had mentioned, but the medium, which seemed ok otherwise was too tight in the sleeves, yet still a little baggy under the arms. My arms aren't heavy, so I think there is just something wrong with the cut--maybe the sleeves are sewn in backwards???
I wouldn't recommend buying this unless you are able to try it on first. I wish they had worked, since the colors, fabric and neckline were nice.
