Rated 1 out of 5 by acarriagedriver Too small
Although I bought this same sweater from LLBean several years ago in the same size but different color, the current sweater is sized very small. It measured 3" shorter and 2" narrower in the shoulders than the other sweater. When wearing it, it hits me right at the waist. I prefer a sweater that's somewhat longer so I'm returning this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Colonialgirl Zippered sweater
I just received the Double L cotton sweater. I wasn't sure which size to order. I took the advice of another reviewer and used the Chat with customer service. I'm glad I did that, since Kari was helpful. I ordered both a regular and petite size in denim heather and lemon colors. Both fit, but the sleeves on the petite size were a little better for me and the length two inches shorter. I have to decide about returning the regular for a petite. Both colors are great. I would order another!

Rated 2 out of 5 by kbnh99 Short and tight
I really want to like this sweater, but I can't, not even on sale. It's just too short. In fairness, it's not any shorter than shown in the picture, but wearing it is a different story. I keep wanting to pull it down. I'm 5'4" so I'm no giant. Also, the arms and chest feel exceptionally tight. Typically, I wear a small from Bean, but ordered this in medium. Still tight. And short. I have the same problems with the crewnecks. Bummer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SunbeltGirl Beautiful sweater!
I bought two of these (red and white) and they are both beautiful vivid colors. They look exactly like the picture. The cotton feels nice and smooth. They do run higher just as the picture shows which I really like. I'm not a fan of long heavy sweaters.
I like the zipper too instead of buttons.
I tried to get a red one in a small for weeks and they have been sold out. So if you think you'll want one for next fall get it now. lol

I have two of these sweaters. Each of them is tighter than normal in the body and the arms. I never dry in the dryer, or they'd probably shrink another size

Rated 1 out of 5 by keywestwarm Sleeves too tight
I ordered two of these sweaters to give as Christmas gifts, and both women had to return them because the sleeves were too tight. Disappointing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BigElectricCat Well-Made But A Smidge Too Short
I love the quality of this cardigan; it is very well-made and I appreciate the generous sleeve length. I gained a few pounds the last year, and was worried about vertical stripes making me look wide, but surprisingly enough, for whatever reason, this sweater does not, in my opinion. The only thing I would have liked more, is a bit more length to it. It's NOT that it is horribly short; it goes down to the top of my hips (or backside), but I do like sweaters just a fraction of an inch longer - "mid-backside"! That's just me being overly-picky about clothing. Overall, it is a fabulous sweater and I highly recommend it.

This sweater is the worst quality of any sweater I've ever seen in my life. It looks like it will rip apart within a week, so I sent it back. The zipper is terrible as well. I love all of the footwear that I get from LLBean but will pass on this sweater.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Juliej005 A fine sweater.
This sweater is comfortable, soft and has a hearty weight. I'm a 2x and it fit perfectly. The length of the sleeves and overall length of the sweater was perfect as well. I'm 5'7 and it hit at mid hip. I see myself using this sweater a bit like a jacket. I liked it so well I ordered another the same day this one arrived.

Rated 5 out of 5 by elgirl From A Picky Shopper
I'm 5'2" or 5'3" 150 lbs. I bought a Petite M in Black & a Regular M in Navy. The Petite looks a little strange if you want your shirt to hang out a bit on the bottom & the Regular M is too long to have anything hanging out. My preference is to wear with nothing under them to enjoy the softness & to look as slim as possible, or with a light weight shirt because the cable knit is somewhat bulky. It hasn't pilled after 4 wearing's. Haven't washed yet, but will in cold water, then use dryer most of the way, then hang to finish the process. It's very well made & a good looking sweater. If they changed anything I wish the collar would be a little larger to really stand up around the neck. I love that look & feel.
