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.

I got this as a Christmas present and absolutely love it. The fit is great and I really like having the zipper.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by pennyone Zip-front cable cardigan marled
Received the sweater earlier than the back order date, & was so happy. I ordered a LG because I like a layered feel. It fit very comfortably & the color is perfect. It is a good purchase.

I'm writing this to warn people that the fit of this sweater may not flatter everyone. It definitely clings to the torso and is quite short, even for my 5'1" frame. Believe me, I have wanted to own this sweater for years, but, every time I try, it just misses the mark.
I've found the Stitchworks sweater to be more successful.

Rated 2 out of 5 by NJThrifty Not as expected
The garment chest measurement is 4 inches smaller for this marled gray cable knit cardigan in a size Small than it is for Bean's solid color cable cardigans. It is also thicker and has very little stretch. Reminds me of a sweater that has shrunk in the wash. I wear my purple cable cardi indoors but this one would be too heavy. Wish it had been a looser and lighter knit. Liked the marled gray colors..

Rated 5 out of 5 by GrammarGrandma Great fit/lasts forever/ flattering
I've been wearing this sweater ( Double L Cotton Sweater, Zip-Front Cable Cardigan) for the 7 years I've lived in the NorthEast and love it! Great for all kind of weather: as a "throw on" before it gets cold out, as an additional layer under down coat, and it always gets compliments. I've washed it, had it "green " cleaned, doesn't matter what process, fit remains perfect. Zipper also is flawless. Color ( mine is plum) is vibrant still after all this time. I'll buy different color next time.

I wound up getting four of these. It's a good three-season sweater that's slimming.
