Rated 5 out of 5 by momma2two Runs VERY small and short
I read the reviews about how small this sweater was running.Glad I listened. I normally take a petite small. I ordered this in a misses medium and it looks just like the one in the photo. Comes a few inches below my belly button and isn't baggy or tight. So for me, it's perfect. I'm a 34-26 and 5'2". The quality is excellent and the rust color is lovely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HappyBeanCustomer58 The plum orchid is GORGEOUS
This sweater was my birthday gift from my best friend. I love the plum orchid color . The sweater is well made, fits well, looks great on, and is perfect for both casual or office in place of a jacket. I am very happy with it.

I have at least six of these cardigans in various lovely colors. They are a nicely weighted sweater..perfect for fall and winter chill. Highly recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by texasreviewer Great sweater, but not for my form
Would have given 5 stars but couldn't get the right fit for me. This is a beautifully knit sweater. . . but I am "presently" 131 lbs, 5'2", with a 36 bra bustline. :-( This boxy form did not work for me in either the PS or PM. The PS was too tight across the bust. The PM fit around bust but was wide from the bust down. No fitted shape. So disappointed that I have to return.

I've worn this sweater for only 1 and a half seasons. The elbows are already starting to wear through. This seems to be a reoccurring theme for my L.L.Bean shirts and sweaters bought within the last 4 or 5 years. Up until now, I've always been happy with Bean's quality - I've got items that are 15+ years old that are still in good shape. Either the quality just isn't what it used to be, or my elbows are getting more pointy as I age! A quick internet search finds others complaining about the same thing, so I don't think it's my elbows! :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Antsy True fit, good color
Since some reviewers said this sweater runs small, I ordered a Large, instead of my usual Med. I should've gone with my instincts, as the large looked sloppy. I exchanged it; the Med. is perfect over a LS Tee. BTW, the Stone color isn't grayish as it looks in the online picture. It's more of a marled warm-khaki, which I much prefer. (It should be called Sand!). And, yes, the sweater is a bit heavy, but for our mild winters, I think it'll provide just the right amount of warmth under a rain jacket. I'm going to enjoy having a new "nice-casual" cardigan this winter. All in all, I like it even better than I thought I would.

Rated 2 out of 5 by LTShopper Looked much better on the model
This is a thick sweater and much heavier than I expected. I am returning it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CSS623 Collecting this cardigan in various colors
I have this cardigan in a few colors and just bought the blue stripe to wear with LLB True Fit Jeans and the ivory camisole and a pair of navy ballet flats. Looks fabulous. Bought the sweater in an XS. It is so versatile. Wear it using one button near the waist. Classy, contemporary and comfortable. Have worn them to my son's rowing competitions. Just heavy enough to be warm and not need a jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by libraryland Great fit
Both cardigans are a great fit - so glad L L Bean is providing us shorter proportioned people with petite sizes. Being 5' and 108#, I still order an XL size for layering - for a looser fit.
Thanks again for great service, and petite sizes
