Rated 3 out of 5 by snsand Shrinkage
I love the material of this tee, however, it shrank lengthwise. It fit perfectly at the hip when I got it. After one washing it is shorter by at least 3 inches, just covering my beltloops of my jeans. I am not overly tall, 5'8". It also got wider, making the after washing fit very boxy. I put it in the dryer.......I am going to rewash it and hang it to dry and see if that fixes it. I do not like a tee shirt that I have to hang dry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BBC48 Great T!
I have been wearing the pima cotton t-shirts and turtlenecks for years and think they are fabulous! The fabric which is a good weight feels wonderful even after many washings...does not pill. I wear them to exercise. I am 5'4" and the length is perfect for me. Please...never, never change the pima cotton T.

Rated 3 out of 5 by lissaj31 Lovely fabric, odd fit
The fabric on this shirt is quite lovely. Yummy and soft. I thought the shirt weight and thickness to be very good (I dislike thin T-shirts). However, it fit quite oddly, and therefore unattractive. I am a very small person. I ordered the XS and it was still too large. It was short (just barely past my belt) and quite wide. I think it would look very nice on a short person who carries a little extra weight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Moose159 Nice T!
I ordered 4 of these in Women's Plus for an upcoming vacation. The fabric is silky and soft and I really like the weight of it. It's not heavy but yet it is substantial enough not to be clingy. The fit is wonderful. I am short and this shirt is not too long for me. For a very tall person, the length might be too short. I will definitely be ordering more. I highly recommend this shirt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HappyBeanCustomer58 a wardrobe staple - clean, neat and pressed
I keep coming back to these shirts time and again for the soft feel of the fabric, the outstanding fit, as well as the all-day comfort. They wash beautifully, no shrinkage, no fading. I pair them with your perfect fit pants for a clean, neat, crisp look at all times. These are without a doubt the most comfortable shirts in my closet. I am completely satisfied. Definitely my favorite shirt in your line.

Rated 1 out of 5 by internetgirl Not like they used to be
I have been wearing these for years. However, in the past couple of years they seemed to have gone downhill in quality and fit. I think I have given up on them. They do not keep their shape and the material doesn't even feel the same.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Riveridge Sleeves are tight
I didn't expect to have any fit problems with a short-sleeved T-shirt! The fabric is lovely, smooth, mid-weight, and the color is pretty. But the circumference of the bottom of the sleeves is a full 2 inches less than the Carefree Unshrinkable V-neck T-shirt which I ordered at the same time. Both of these are described as "Slightly Fitted." The Carefree shirt fits exactly as I expected (I ordered XL because I like a looser, casual fit). The sleeves on this Pima V-neck T-shirt hug my arms closely, from the hem up to the shoulder, and feel as binding as a T-shirt can feel, though the body of the shirt is quite loose. I'd like to return it, but shipping will cost half as much as the shirt did on sale, so I'm disappointed.

Rated 4 out of 5 Delightful fabric, shrinks in length
Pros: Pima cotton fabric is wonderfully soft, lighter fabric weight will be nice for warmer weather (but not too thin), decent color choices, well made.
Cons: Fit is a little odd in that shirt is a tad snug through shoulders and arms but going up a size results in a girth too big around (almost like a maternity top). I have a pima crew neck from several years back and it fits the same way. This is probably why I have not ordered more over the years despite really liking the fabric.
Measurements on a Regular Large out of the package and measurements after one regular wash and tumble dry are as follows:
Length(shoulder to hem): 24" down to 23". Girth (laying flat) 21" with no change after wash, Sleeve length (armpit to sleeve hem) remained at 1.25". Cannot say if a cold wash and hang dry approach would prevent length shrinkage. I personally did not want a shirt that needed special laundering attention. I am 5'3" and weight about 125lbs and the overall fit is decent with exception of odd shoulder/arm fit as noted above.

Rated 3 out of 5 by likesthesnow A little disappointed
This is a lovely, soft t-shirt. However, I found it to be too short, coming to the top of my hips. And, within 1 week and 1 wash, the hem has already unraveled. No big deal, because it's an easy fix - but disappointing, as I expect better from LLBean products.

Rated 4 out of 5 by canfly Please restock!
Love these shirts because they are lightweight and so soft. I love the rich violet and the colbalt. I re-ordered the purple because my cat made a hole in my first one that I got last year. I would really like to have another colbalt one but there are only small and medium left. Please restock!!! BTW... a suggestion: L and XL are always the first sizes to be sold out and always S left over. Why not stock more of the L & XL and less S to start with?
