Rated 5 out of 5 by TomsRiverGardener Comfortable and great length
This turtleneck is so soft against my skin, and the neck scrunches nicely. The fit is perfect, and the length is perfect for staying tucked in. I love the hemmed sleeves (rather than stitched on cuffs) so that I can wear it for casual or dress wear. It's worth paying the extra cost over the competitor's product.

I think this a good product; comfortable, easy to wash, minimal shrinkage. However, the colors offered are--- except for the basic black, white, and cream----unsophisticated, more suitable for little girls than women.
You make the same tee for men in subtle, wearable colors like gray, teal, rust. Stop with the paint-by-numbers stuff!

Rated 4 out of 5 by MidnightBlue not like they used to be
I still give this item 4 stars due to the soft pima cotton (which is better than any other retailers I have tried) & neck style, but would be 2-3 stars in other ways. Mind you I would never have even tried others if Bean had kept the consistent sizing and quality from years ago. I have literally hundreds of pima tees (been buying for over 20 years) in every style made. I have ones from 10 years ago I still wear.
What has happened in the last few years? There is now excessive shrinkage! I love the all-cotton, and don't even like really long tees, but these become unwearable; you needed to make longer to allow for this. They only shrink in length, not width so going up a size doens't help. Also the cut changes every year (I've remained the exact same size but some years take a med, though they are always too wide then, and some a small, though sometimes they are then too tight in the upper arm or across neck or shoulders). I am 5'5 1/2 and 126 pounds (same since I started buying form Bean). I used to be able to count on size small tees and size 10 (or Medium) pants. Now that rarely works.
I've also tried the 'bean tees' but same problem (shrink in length excessively but not width). Please please please go back to your former high-quality & consistency. I used to buy all my clothes at Bean (also for my husband) but am increasingly frustrated. Great customer service but tired of having to return so much.

This is a wardrobe staple - why on earth would you discontinue these in women's plus sizes???

Rated 3 out of 5 by ksturkeyred Color discrepancy
I ordered a "true blue" turtleneck, based on what I perceive "blue" to be. The shirt that I received, in a package labeled "true blue", appears to me to be closer to turquoise. My husband, who doesn't particularly discriminate among colors, without prompting from me identified the color of this shirt as "turquoise". I wonder if the package was mislabeled. The shirt itself is OK, fabric and construction seem to be decent quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by toolatesmart Absolutely the BEST turtleneck ever made!
Perfect L fit with length and not too tight around the neck; virtually invisible neck seam. The best part is the fabric; I hope LLBean starts offering lingerie in this fabric, and scarves, and anything else that touches the skin. Looks good after washer-dryer. I'm in love : ) Donating all other brands of turtlenecks to charities this week.

Rated 4 out of 5 by eggandbeans Flattering and comfortable
I have been buying LL Bean Pima turtlenecks for years and continue to be pleased with the quality and workmanship; the fabric is soft and silky, and the turtleneck works well with both casual and dressier clothes. The raisin brown color is a nice addition to the palette, and the black retains its color even after many washes. As some other reviewers have noted, the turtleneck needs to be slightly longer, although it still works well for me; with this improvement I would be able to give a rating of 5 stars instead of 4.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Enthusiasticfan Great fit and fabric
I always like LLBean merchandise, but this turtleneck is especially comfortable and fits perfectly. The extra small is not too tight and I love the feel of the pima cotton, even more than the regular cotton. I bought the lavender and am planning to get the yellow as soon as I get more coupons.

Rated 1 out of 5 by ActiveRetiree09 Much too short to stay tucked in
I have stopped buying LL Bean shirts: turtlenecks and crewnecks, because they are way too short and will not stay tucked in. They are also inconsistent in length; in some cases, a Small is shorter than an Extra Small. I always wash in cold water and never use a dryer, but the shirts shrink in length anyhow. Please, LL Bean, listen to the many, many customers who complain that the shirts are too short!
