Rated 2 out of 5 by azdogs Shrinks up
I bought the next larger size because of the reviews I read. These shirts still shrink way up in length. I won't buy these again. Too bad, because the cotton is very soft.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Scubared Need more colors and more stock in size lg and Xlg
i love this shirt! So soft and washes well- dress it up or down.
However....whenever you get really great colors such as turquois, soft cobalt .... Nice vibrant colors....you must only stock a few in each size because they are sold out whenever i try to order them!!!! C'mon guys really!!???? The stock you have currently are muted colors that i will not buy for summer. I don't want to go to the mall, but you have no beachy-summery colors to choose from! Please bring more summer colors!

Rated 3 out of 5 by dj1955 too tight
LL Bean has done it again: changed sizing. I used to love the pima cotton tee, but now that it's "slightly fitted" it doesn't fit me. If LL Bean wants to retain its older customers, their policy will have to appeal to us. That is, give us the CHOICE of "relaxed fit." I exchanged my usual Medium for Large, but Large is baggy. It's OK for around the house but the pima tees are nice enough quality to wear for special occasions. No more, sad to say.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Shopper68 Restore relaxed fit as a choice
I have purchased Pima T-shirts for years because of the soft silky fabric, general quality of the garment, it's versatility and the perfect fit. The shirts could be worn with jeans or dressy slacks. The relaxed fit was a perfect fit for me as a 5' 2" busty woman whose figure is otherwise average. My weight has remained the same over the years. I've noticed the past several years that both the fabric quality has changed and the fit has become narrower and tighter until now the tee is described as "slightly fitted", but it really isn't. The medium shirt fits close to the skin and even going up a size doesn't resolve the tight fit since the shoulders are too wide in a large size. Even the sleeves are narrower. Also, in regards to care. Several years ago I stopped putting the shirts into the drier on low since they shank a full size in every direction. I washed on cold, hang to dry and iron to maintain original sizing. Please bring back the relaxed fit so busty gals can be attractive and comfortable again. In the meantime, I will find tops elsewhere.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Winniwoman PLUS SIZE COLORS and LONGER tees needed!
I will just keep saying it over and over again until someone at LL Bean hears me: PLUS SIZE WOMEN ARE PEOPLE TOO! Look at all the beautiful colors in the Misses size...under TK207241 you have emeralds, turquoises, cobolts, forest green, etc. etc. etc. And what is there for Plus size women? Practically nothing. In both the TK and TA 207241 Pima Crew Neck offerings there are only blah colors. Just because we are larger does not mean we don't like colors. In fact, you have given us only choices in these crew neck pimas that are light colored so they make us look larger. The beautiful emeralds and forest greens and medium or dark cobalt would be beautiful and slimming on a larger person. The tees in ALL sizes need to be LONGER as well. For some reason lately your pima tees are all getting shorter and expose the middle when bending over. Not good. I'm not even tall! I'm a 2X and 5'4", so making just a "tall" won't solve the problem. All size versions need to be longer! Would you PLEASE consider putting a 2X or 3X size woman on your marketing team? Perhaps then we could get some things offered we could actually buy from you!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Zeisel Nice shirt - too short
I like the quality and make of the shirt but it's way too short for most of my pants. Bean shirts used to be my go to t-shirts, now I buy them elsewhere because these are too short

Rated 5 out of 5 by Soxgirl58 Just perfect
Ordered this a few weeks ago and have worn it twice. I don't often take the time to review but wanted to give this T a 5 star rating. Lovely material for layering under sweaters or jackets, long enough "short sleeves" not "cap" length, just the right body length for those of us too tall for petite but on the short side of "regular". I read the reviews that said this T shrunk but I didn't have a problem; put in dryer on low for only a few minutes then hung to finish drying and it came out beautifully. Too bad colors in my size were limited, I just ordered the only 3 left. I'd take more!
