Rated 3 out of 5 by lilu My Ugly Sweater
The color of this cardigan is really lovely (mallard green), and the quality is outstanding, so it looks amazing in my closet. It is a whole different story when I wear it, it is boxy, short, with short sleeves and just makes me look ugly. It is my wear-at-home and -the-yard-work cardigan, I'd not risk wearing it in public.

Rated 4 out of 5 by comfortmostimportant heavier than you might think
The color blue of this sweater is lovely and it goes with navy and denim. The sleeves were a bit long but I washed and dried it in the dryer on low heat and the sleeves shortened. The whole sweater shrunk a little but in length, not width. On second washing it didn't shrink any more. I believe the label says to air dry, but I don't have the space nor patience for that. I'm very glad I bought it.

I thought this sweater ran a little smaller than most LLBean large tops. It's uncomfortably tight for me in the shoulders and arms so I am sending it back, even though I really think it's beautiful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by chocolatemoose2 It is perfect!!
I love this cardigan! The fit could not have been more perfect. I ordered one and loved it so much that I ordered 2 more (lemon, island coral, wisteria blue) back in February.
I am 5'6" 118 lbs and size S fits well. The lemon color is in XS because it was the only size available then. Since I loved that lemon color so much I just had to have it. The XS turned out to be a tiny bit fitted but still very comfortable.
The sweater is substantial with good weight and the colors are sooooo pretty. It looks really cute with jeans. I cannot wait for the Texas weather to turn cooler so I can wear them again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chef4Seniors Great!
This cardigan is very beautiful, well made, and warm. I feel that it does fit a bit large though. I would recommend going one size down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Charann REALLY BEAUTIFUL CARDIGAN
Purchased this cardigan for Fall transitional period and really absolutely love it. The quality of the knit and the colors are perfect in every way. This is a cardigan that will truly retain it's shape and not sag nor will the sleeves. I have been wearing it with a solid color tee shirt, but plan to purchase a mock turtleneck in on of the blue colors in this cardigan to wear on cooler days. The colors within the cardigan will work with a number of colors so you will get full utilization pairing it with slacks, capris and skirts. This cardigan is suitable for both casual or a semi-dress or office situation. I would definitely recommend it, by the way I went with the Blue Stripe color in a Large size which was a perfect fit. Have received several compliments on it from the first wearing already!

Rated 3 out of 5 by lilu Good quality, Pretty Colour
This is a very beautiful cardigan that is very well made, but not without some flaws. It is a bit boxy looking. I think because it is so thick it should be longer to balance out the overall appearance. I would only recommend this to my petite friends.

Rated 3 out of 5 by geoskimom Gorgeous colors, but boxy and frumpy on
I practically drooled over the colors and excitedly ordered this cotton sweater in the aquamarine. Indeed, it arrived lush and soft, and in a delightful color. But, on it was a huge disappointment. Boxy, extra fabric under the arms, thick front placket looked great but made buttoning and unbuttoning the smallish pretty, pearly, buttons difficult. Daughter gave it thumbs down, so back it goes. (I do wonder if the shape might have changed with washing and wearing, but as I have way too many sweaters anyway, back it goes.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by mommycozy Soft with attractive colors
I ordered this style next year but returned it due to the boxy shape. This year, I ordered two of these in regular size instead of my usual petite in blush pink and aquamarine colors. I love the softness and beautiful colors of the sweaters.
Having the sweaters longer in regular size certainly helps ease the boxiness.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LadyHiker101 Just bought a second one.
The striped and highly textured version of this sweater makes it a stunning, eye catching piece. Last year I purchased it in blue. I just received the sienna brick color. It couldn't be more beautiful and complimentary to anyone's skin tone. Thanks Bean.
