Rated 4 out of 5 by rockonllbean Nice shirt - just too short
I LOVE the pima cotton t-shirts as they are so soft and breathable. The problem is they barely hit my waist and they are not offered in a tall or medium tall. I've stopped buying them because they are just too short which is the case for many LL Bean women's tops. I buy men's t's and they are a little tight across the chest. It would be wonderful if this was offered in a longer version as myself and other women I have talked to cannot wear these as they end up being a bit of a mid drift and I am 5'6". But the quality is great and you can not beat the 100% satisfaction guarantee! Could you make them in tall for some of us in just the basic colors - black, white, blue and perhaps a pink? I think you would sale more of them.

Rated 3 out of 5 by PeaceMom Great fabric, nice colors!
I deducted 2 stars because the neck is so large in the plus sizes. I hope designers someday figure out that plus sized women do not have necks like football players. Otherwise, this is a top quality shirt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Indago Great Petite T
Petite Pima Cotton T short sleeve crewneck fits great! Material almost wash and wear! Purchased several colors. Would like more colors for petite sizes such as: Rich Royal Blue or a Rich Colbalt Blue, a Rich Rasberry, Orange, Peach, Navy etc. Would like to see the same petite pima cotton T in v-neck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BoiseNoise Wish they were still around!
I ordered one of these t-shirts a couple of months ago, and it fits better than any other tee in my closet. The relaxed fit actually has space for my middle-aged, poochy stomach, and the Petite length looks fabulous! I really wish I had picked up more while they were still available. Sure do hope Llbean brings back this cut again. Their website touts the slightly fitted tees as being their "most popular," but that cut just doesn't work for some of us!

Rated 4 out of 5 by AyJay Careful...they shrink
I love these T shirts. I love the feel and the fit. I washed two of them in cold water and hung them up to air dry in the laundry room off the kitchen. That morning, I received another one in white I had ordered. (I order a Petite Medium). I spread out the air dried one the counter and measured from back neck to bottom. It was 20 and one half inches. Then I measured the new one that had just arrived in the mail. It was 22". So I know for a fact, they shrink. In my case, this is not a problem as I hemup many T shirts. But a tall woman might have a problem. Just be aware when ordering. Other than this problem, Mrs Lincoln, I can wear the newly laundered T shirt without ironing. They are wonderful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RIYogaGirl Well Made Tops
I have several of the pima cotton tees (short and long sleeve). They are well made and wash well. I use them for sleep shirts and layering shirts. These shirts run a bit fitted, which is fine for layering shirts, but I recommend going up a size if you want to wear this shirt by itself.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ElizaA Please make this tee longer in length
I have to agree with a number of other reviewers -- the material and workmanship of these tees is wonderful; however, even when washed in cold and hung to dry, THEY SHRINK. Very frustrating. This makes them way too short, even for someone who is proportional like me. Another 3 or even 4 inches in length would be great.
Doesn't anyone make a longer pima cotton top? LLBean, you'd be an answer to a million shopper's prayers if you could get this part right. Please give it a shot for the next possible season. Thanks!

Rated 3 out of 5 by ocean Bring back the old style crew neck!
My all time favorite crew neck tee is no longer a favorite since the neckline has been changed, is much higher and tighter, not at all comfortable! The fabric is also heavier and not as soft as the old Pima tee. Color choices are only adequate, could use lots more, and just because seasons change does not mean some of us do not want to wear lighter shades, like pink!
Please bring back the old style crew neck and soft Pima fabric!

Rated 5 out of 5 by oposliv Perfect tshirt and I highly recommend.
I have 2 Dalmatians and this fabric is so smooth that the dog hair does not stick. I love these shirts and bought one then went back for two more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by stitcher56 More Colors Please!!!
I really like these T's, they're my favorites, and I have bought a lot of them over the years, BUT you really need NEW and MORE colors in the Women's Plus Size (as well as the other sizes)!!! The same colors are offered all the time with the occasional new shade offered (but usually just a slight variation of a color already there). Otherwise they're a great top. They wear well, great quality for the money. They're nice enough that I can wear them for work, which is why I started buying them in the first place. They wash and dry well and the color doesn't fade away like some other ones do. Please offer more color selection, regular as well as seasonal.
