Rated 2 out of 5 by Lois007 Boatneck Too Wide
I purchased this shirt because it was the only three-quarter sleeve style available. The material is lovely. It is very soft and smooth.
The main drawback is that the boatneck cut is too wide. Because of this, my bra strap is always showing and I have to constantly adjust the shirt to cover it back up. If the designers would have decreased the neckline width the shirt would have been perfect. As it now stands, I cannot wear it by itself and must wear it under a sweater, which is also not great, because pulling three-quarter sleeves down while putting your arms in a sweater (or jacket) is a bit more difficult than a long-sleeved shirt. If you like showing off your undergarments, then this shirt is for you. If you would rather have your bra strap covered, you will need to pick a different neckline.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LLBeanChik Love it so far!
I just got this, and I'm very happy! Love the color, love the semi-fitted cut, love the length. I did not find the sleeves tight, as one reviewer noted, and this is a moderate boat neck, so I think it will stay put. I don't know yet how it will hold up, but I'm hopeful. And so far, it's just what I was after!

Rated 5 out of 5 by PimaPolonia More colors, please.
I am a Pima Fan & have been for years. Please, please consider more colors....olive green, light brown, dark brown, non-heathered grey (light and dark), soft orange. Some softer and subtler colors that are not pastels would be most welcome. Pima shirts wear wonderfully and feel great. But some sophisticated "urban" colors are needed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by alizzie Nice, but not perfect
I do like my three-quarter sleeve boat neck, but not everything is perfect. The medium fits my 5 ft 5 in, 125 frame well, and I like the color and fit even after washing. But the boat neck is kind of goofy. Bra straps are always showing on one side or the other, and I have broad shoulders.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Elsbethie Love last years Boatneck Tunic
I love last year's tunic version of this boatneck top. It washed great and no shrinkage, There are a few things that have changed since last year and they are NOT for the good. Now LLBean no longer offers the tunic in plus so I found this sad alternative. I purchased this top in a plus size this year. I am so very disappointed in the "shrink factor"... specifically the length. I have tried everything that has been written on this forum. Cold water wash, hang dry, hand wash, etc. Don't waste your money on the V-neck Three-Quarter Sleeve Top either... same problems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by hillcountrygal2 At Last! My Favorite Color
China Blue as described in the catalog is my favorite color (I call this color periwinkle). The boat neck is flattering, fabric is smooth and is a perfect fit for my petite small size.
Sale price is another bonus.
An e-mail told me this package had just been delivered to my address, and sure enough, there it was. Great follow up from this reliable company.

Rated 3 out of 5 by doxielover Great fabric
These pima cotton tees are a great awesome fabric but find the style not to my liking. The crossover is longer & fit seems a tad bigger than all the others and that is much better. Boatneck shows bra straps.

I am "full-figured" at 5'4" and 135 lbs with a 38" bust, and usually wear a size 10. The MEDIUM fits perfectly. They are not "form-fitting", but neither are they "baggy". (I do, however, have slender arms). The hem line comes to several inches above the top of my legs. I ordered several of these shirts earlier this year and liked them so much I bought more. I now own seven (cardinal red, china blue, rich violet, sun--yellow, pink hydrangea, emerald green, and true blue). I measured them before washing in the machine, shaking them out, drying them on hangers (no dryer), and giving them a "touch-up ironing". They still measure the same. Recently I took six of the shirts on a 5-week trip of Spain (it was warm there). By combining them with 3 pairs of pants, 1 skirt, and a jacket and dressing them "up or down" with accessories, I was able to dress appropriately in Madrid and Barcelona as well as comfortably in resort areas near the Mediterranean. I washed the shirts out by hand in the hotel sinks, rolled them in towels to absorb excess moisture, and hung them on hangers in the bathroom. Most of the time they dried overnight. Afterward I gave them a touch-up with my travel iron. I am making another trip in early fall and will take the same shirts but a warmer jacket as it will be cooler.

Rated 3 out of 5 by marintwinmom Don't like boatneck
My husband bought me this shirt for my birthday. It's a pretty shirt, but as I've discovered in the past, boatneck's don't work for me. I'm always adjusting my bra straps. Also, it's a little wide at the bottom, so not very flattering.
I'm exchanging it for another top.

Rated 1 out of 5 by beckyt52 elbows too tight
I ordered this in size medium in hydrangea pink. Unfortunately, the elbows were too tight to the point of being uncomfortable so I had to return it. A size larger would have been too big overall.
