Rated 5 out of 5 by sdwaldon Bean three quarter sleeve v-neck
I wrote a review a long time ago. I have this shirt in so many colors I cannot count. Love it. It is perfect for all year long. Please keep on bringing it in lots of colors.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CopaceticPJC Thanks Reviewers!
I love this style of top -- cotton v-neck with 3/4 sleeves, a good weight of cotton fabric, not too flimsy. Thanks to reviewer posts, I ordered up a size, washed the top in cold water and dried it on a low setting, and, wow, did it shrink! The fit is a little boxier than I like but the most annoying thing is how the sleeve shrunk up and the binding at the bottom is a little tight. I'm now concerned about the effect of future washings.

I love this top. I have been ordering this three quarter V neck for years and decided to try in the color beeswax. I just love it! It brightened up my day. It will continue to be my go to favorite top.

Rated 1 out of 5 by FLReviewer Boxy, Short, Shrinks!
So disappointed in these shirts. The colors are beautiful but the shirts don't wear well. I ordered them one size up. Even on the gentle cold wash cycle and NO dryer the shirts all shrank horribly and ended up looking boxy. I am 5' 6" and these shirts are now waaaaay too short. They also seem to look "old" quickly. I much prefer L.L. Bean's pima cotton v neck long sleeve shirts but it seems they are being phased out! Bummer!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by ArlHtsShopper Major Shrinkage
I purchased one of these shirts and liked it so much that I immediately purchased several more in different colors. However, I was very disappointed after washing them (on cold and drying on low for 10 minutes). They shrunk INCHES in the length. While I normally, like my t-shirts a little shorter, these are so short I wouldn't wear them out of the house. Other than the shrinking, I think they would have been great. I have never experienced shrinking from LL Bean. This is VERY DISAPPOINTING!!

I'm just 5'5, so I expected these to hit me about mid hip or so. NOPE. And then they shrunk.

I love these shirts, until I wash them. The just keep shrinking and shrinking. I've tried buying a larger size. I wash them in warm water and dry on low. They still shrink. I wash them in cold water and line dry. And they still shrink! Meanwhile, I'm loosing weight so I know it's not me. I have several of them now and I'm thinking about taking them ALL back for refund. I loved the 3/4 sleeve, V-neck unshrinkable shirts, they were great. So of course, they no longer have them. Please bring those back!

Rated 4 out of 5 by CaveatTalonWager BE SURE TO ORDER ONE SIZE UP
I ordered this shirt in several colors and they are beautiful. I think LLBean leads the industry in the nice variety of colors they offer in their clothing. The fabric used for these shirts is a very nice quality and is quite soft
Since I am an avid review reader before I purchase much of anything on-line, I did read several dozen reviews on this shirt and one thing kept popping up over and over again...SHRINKAGE. So I decided to order one size larger than what is my normal size and sure enough, I was swimming in it. I went ahead and washed and dried the shirts (on low) and they shrunk LIKE CRAZY! The good news is that now they fit me very well. The arms are a bit snug (I can't figure out why clothing designers and manufactures make garments with such skinny arms (and my arms are not inordinately big). Since there is nice stretch in this fabric, the arms are OK...I just would prefer a bit more roominess in them.
This shirt has nice contours for a person who has a waist and it is very pretty. If I could change one thing about it (other than the intensive shrinkage and thin arms) I guess that I would raise the "V" up a bit, but that's just personal taste.
Be SURE you pay attention to the comments about shrinkage and order up one size IF you are like me and don't like to baby garments in the wash OR might forget and accidentally throw these in the dryer...even one time. You will never wear it again...

Rated 3 out of 5 by NapaArtist Does not seem "slightly fitted"
I wasn't happy with the fit of this shirt. I bought a large in this and the Crew all cotton short-sleeve shirt, both of which were supposed to be "slightly fitted" This shirt was very baggy and hung down below my arm pits and out from my torso. The short-sleeve crew fit my body nicely. My husband also remarked on the difference. I am returning this one, disappointed to not be able to find a 3/4 shirt with the same fit as the short-sleeve shirt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by qscftyjpo So pretty
I got the top in the aquamarine heather. Stunning color. I forgot to measure before washing and drying. Not sure if it shrank or not. It's a good weight cotton knit, not thin, not too thick. Good for spring and fall wear.
