Rated 3 out of 5 by ZoeT Way Too Small
My boyfriend bought me this sweater in a size XS for Christmas and when I opened it, I had to ask if he shopped in the toddler's section for it because it was way too small - my Cabbage Patch Doll would have looked good in it!
Too bad, because the material is wonderful and looks very well made. My only wish is that LL Bean takes the length from the sleeves on this sweater and adds it onto the waist. Pity.

Your description of this sweater :
Why We Love It - Few garments are more versatile than our women?s zip-front cardigan.
I agree...but have been visiting your site for weeks now looking for colors and sizes of this for spring and finding neither.
Is this a clearance item now? Why wouldn't you have a full stock of sizes and colors in this classic cotton sweater for springtime makes me wonder what is happening with LLBean? VERY disappointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by pshome Bring this cardigan back
I love this cardigan and have it in three colors. I always have at least one in the office, which is often too cold for the outfit I wear to work. These cardigan go nicely with just about everything and are the perfect fit, hanging just below the waste but above the hips.
I would love to order more --> LLBean, please bring this cardigan back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Outdoorlover2 perfect fit for me
I've got short arms and don't like long sweaters, so it works great for me. I just got my second one in the zipper style and my first in the regular crewneck. These sweaters arrive slightly stiff but soften beautifully with wear and washing (I hand wash and lay flat to dry). I'm 5'4" and around 130lbs. For a tight fit I got the Petite XS and for a looser fit I got Petite Small. Perfect fit on me, these sweaters are really nice and last well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by EveningMargarita exceeded expectations
My marled black surprised me with its flattering fit. Also I had never bought this type of neckline before because I don't want a hoodie. I had bought it to wear with a sparkling necklace that cascades down an open front which has to be anchored closed at the bottom. So it was to serve a dressy purpose. It looks so good and feels so good that it has more frequent use as casual wear. AND I plan to buy another in the fall when a refilled color range is offered again, HOPEFULLY <- PLEASE LLBEAN

Rated 3 out of 5 by dks222 Very Short!
Well, the petite is like a crop top - while the sleeves are the right length the length to the bottom is about 4-6 inches too short for me. You can kinda see that on the model and I don't expect the regular size would fit right either, certainly without leaving me with sleeves that are way too long.

Rated 2 out of 5 by jean1252 SIZING ERROR?
Purchased this item in a size MEDIUM for my sister. I could tell immediately when I opened up the packaging that it was going to be too small. I tried it on and it fits me perfectly. I'm a size EXTRA SMALL. Not sure if the label is mis-marked or if the item runs REALLY small for the listed size. If it had been size-labeled correctly, I would have given the sweater a five-star rating.

Rated 4 out of 5 by WinterinBoston Good-looking product, runs a bit short for sizes
I'm 5'3" and I sometimes get petite sizes. I first ordered this in a Small Petite and it fell too short for my liking. I tried a Small Regular and eventually settled on a Medium Regular (Misses) fit. I would say order to the next largest size to have a comfortable fit.
I also originally got this in Black/Paperwhite but ended up exchanging it for the Gray Heather/Paperwhite. The black version was a lot darker than pictured on the website, and the colors seemed to contrast a bit more (on the website photo it looks more like a blended dark gray).
That being said, I now am very satisfied with the version I have--thank god for L.L.Bean's return/exchange policy. I have received a lot of compliments on it. I really enjoy having a sweater that zips up (without a hood!). I like the high collar and it is a good sweater to wear to work.
