Rated 4 out of 5 by TurkanaGirl Too long!
Well, I see a bunch of reviews complaining the shirt is too short for some, but I have a short torso and it is too long for me. I tried it in Small and Medium and had to return both. Since the boatneck neckline is so high, the big expanse of fabric below makes some of us people with small torsos look huge, and the fabric catches and bunches on the hips. Right now Bean is trying to hedge its bets in the middle and failing to satisfy many customers on both ends of the spectrum. Suggestion: Make this in both Petite and Regular sizes - then we'll all be able to find what works for us.

Others complain this T is too short. At 5'2", 180, the XL is a good fit, and the length is also fine.

Rated 3 out of 5 by RufeMN Really Really Red
I purchased a red shirt in XL. Even after 2 washes, it still bleeds red onto my undergarments. It is very soft and comfy.
That said, it DID shrink.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Notapickyshopper Boatneck Tee
Not the same shirt as last year--which was wonderful. Bought two this year, and they are not made the same. Before, they had a top that folded in so you could see no stitching. Not true anymore--yet the ad says: "We've offered it at a great price for nearly 20 years, while maintaining the premium quality. " Not so. Tacky compared to the past.

So many complaints that these shirts are too short. Why won't you make these in tall or add to the length? Really makes me unhappy with this brand in general.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cdidion Pima cotton tee, 3/4 sleeve
I love this top. BUT, I've been watching and waiting for 2-3 years for it to be offered in GREY! Seems like it would be a big seller. When will it be available in grey?

Rated 3 out of 5 by Kate1322 Boatneck T is not long enough!!
I purchased this top a few months ago, only because I could not purchase several other tee styles in plus sizes. I have to have 3/4 sleeves, so the choices are limited, as are the colours. The tee fits well in the shoulders, but it is about 4 inches shorter than I would like. I am of average height - 5'5".
LLBean - please make some of your tees longer, and please make more of them available in plus sizes. (The fabric quality of the tee is great by the way.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by SeattleMama An Entire Adolescence; Back for More!
My daughter is 18 years old. She doesn't really need a lot of school clothes this Christmas, but then she sighed, "Except...LL Bean just makes the SOFTEST pima cotton tops..."
She should know! She has been wearing them since she has been large enough to wear misses' clothing. In our family the girls grow quickly, so she has been in these tops for close to a decade. She is small boned, half-Japanese, but the boat neck tops are not so widely cut that they slip over her shoulders as some others she has tried. She likes the v necks also because they are slimming.
But more than anything, my girl likes the feeling of soft, soft fabric against her skin.
Before too much longer, she will be out of the house and on her own, but I will still be buying her Christmas gifts. Of course I will! And so Christmas after Christmas, I will be back to Bean's for pima cotton tops...for my grown-up girl, who will still always be my baby.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RKKC2407 One of my favorites
I am plus size and bought several as I can use them often at work with business casual slacks since the neckline is perfect for the season's stylish large bib style costume jewelry necklaces. I like the three quarters sleeve length. I don't have the problem with bra straps mentioned by others . So far the shirts hold their color and shape well. But they seem to shrink in length by about 1/2 inch. They travel well. They are easy to keep clean when soiled as opposed to less expensive cotton knit shirts I have almost every color and would like more colors from LLBEAN. I plan to reorder when necessary to always have at least 5 of these shirts in my closet

Rated 5 out of 5 by MRose Favorite shirt by far........but,
This is my favorite LLBean shirt by far! Over the years I have ordered more than 20.
My only complaint is that LLBean doesn't offer this shirt with long sleeves, especially for use in colder weather. When wearing the 3/4 length under a sweatshirt or cardigan the sleeves tend to ride up and bunch a bit and are not as comfortable as they would be if they were long.
Please LLBean, make this shirt with long sleeves!!!
