Rated 2 out of 5 by sherwood Beautiful but huge
I normally wear a 2-3x in sweaters, so I went ahead and ordered 3, size 3 sweaters. Tomorrow they are going back. They are HUGE. I must say, the quality is excellent, but as a 5'2" plus size, the arms covered my hands and the sweater hung below my butt. Not a flattering look at all. Even a smaller size won't help the arms or length.
In the French Sailor shirt, I wear a size 2-3 and they are perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MCubed Perfect!!
I was a little nervous about ordering this after reading the reviews about the fit. However, I went ahead and ordered the size I normally wear in tops from LL Bean and this sweater was a perfect fit for me! I am 5'5", 125 lbs and I usually wear a small regular, or small petite if the top is cut long. I ordered the small regular in cream and the fit and color were exactly what I wanted. It IS cut a little shorter in the body and the sleeves might be too long for someone with shorter arms, but I didn't find it to be too tight either in the body or the sleeves. I am looking forward to cooler weather! I know that this sweater will get a lot of wear!

Comfortable, mid-weight sweater. I usually wear a petite large, but after reading the reviews I ordered a petite XL and it was a perfect fit. I'm 5'6", 140 lbs., but I have short arms and a short torso-and finding tops that fit can be challenging. I liked this one so well that I ordered 3 more in different colors. Sizing seemed consistent in all 4 sweaters.

Drapes beautifully. Not too tight. A sweater for any occasion. No substitute for this. Beats the competition. . Better than picture. Mid weight. I am 5'2", 133 lbs with larger shoulders and the Large fits fine.

Rated 3 out of 5 by twin20 Nice but too short
I liked everything about this sweater: quality, color, feel of material (combed cottone!) EXCEPT: it was much too short and did not look good because of it. I sent it back, it was just too small . Would it have been 3 inches longer, it would have been a great sweater for me.

Just received the Reg M denim solid zip cardi. The color and texture are nice. I usually wear an LL Bean Reg Small (5'3", 123 lbs). In this case, the Medium fit, but very closely. I certainly couldn't wear more than a t-shirt underneath. I'm going to try for the Large and see how that works.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LitLover almost, but not quite
I love my longer hoodie sweater like this one in denim blue. I got this one in Stone for the summer. I love the feel of this one too. What I miss though are pockets. Also, since the sweater is shorter -- saving yarn-- and the pockets are missing -- why is this one the same price as the hoodie double L cotton sweater?

Rated 5 out of 5 by KYLoyalShopper Great Fit and Quality
I am 5'4" and weigh 107 lbs. I purchased an XS Petite because I wanted it to fall at my high hip which is my preference in sweater fit. I have a hard time finding sweaters that aren't too long and was really hoping this would work out. This sweater was exactly what I wanted. I bought the Denim Heather and loved both the fit and color. The sweater quality is also very nice. It's warm enough to wear on it own on chilly Spring days or with a Turtleneck for extra warmth in the Winter. Since I've looked long and hard for a sweater with this fit, I decided to purchase the Lemon as well so I'll have two.

Rated 2 out of 5 by 1Smithieshopper Pretty but too short~
Own several of these sweaters from previous years but new style is too short. Even tried really big size but it was just wider not longer.
[Purchases were solid colors not stripe.]
Disappointing for tall girl.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Run6014 Fits tighter than expected
Earlier this spring, I bought the Double L Cotton Sweater, Zip-Cardigan Style WITH A HOOD. I gave the sweater a 5 star rating.
Given this positive experience, I decided to buy the same sweater in a different style--i.e., the Double L Cotton Sweater, Zip-Cardigan style WITHOUT A HOOD. The sweater fits more like an XS than the S I ordered. It is short in length and fits tight throughout especially in the arms. The sweater is extremely uncomfortable when zipped all the way up. I feel like I'm being choked!
The 4 star rating may be generous in light of the sizing issue. Perhaps the sweater I was mailed was defective? mislabeled?
