Rated 3 out of 5 by PeaBrainsOpinion MORE STYLISH THAN FUNCTIONABLE
My Two Cents Worth: One size fits too tight across the bust and cuts into my arm pits but the next size up has arm holes that show WAY too much of my bra meaning I can't comfortably wear this shirt in public. Also, the new 'streamlined' style of pocket and 'side shaping' have a 'girdle' effect on the bust line - I'm of average size and feel smashed into the shirt and it looks that way too - The older style with the billowed pockets was much more comfortable, useful and more flattering plus the arm holes fit better though still too large - and I'm not petite in the least. It's too hard to get a fly box in and out of these pockets - a lot of money down the drain if you drop it in the drink, and a day of fun ruined. The fabric looks nice and drys quickly with few wrinkles but the 'candy cotton' color choices are getting old year after year - I'd like to see some natural earth colors: Olive, khaki, light sage, clay, off white, etc. I would not suggest this top to a friend without the above warnings. I think LLB is trying to make this shirt work for too many different situations instead of making two styles: 1 - A 'cutesy' stylish model you can wear to work in trendy colors and 2 - A comfortable 'functional' model in natural hues that blend into the enviornment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TravelingSideburys Disney in August!
Needed for trip with heat index 106!! Wore with tropic shorts. Plane from CT to FL then right into parks. Did not overheat, even at my "certain age". As cool as my linen tops without the ironing. Dries very quickly after water ride or rainstorm. Eyeglass loops were an extra delight when switching glasses to go inside/rides. Runs small, especially in chest. I ordered up after reading reviews. 36B ordered size large. For me at 5'1" length falls at bottom of my back pockets but does look too long! Also wore as a over shirt, unbuttoned with jockey stay cool cami under. Collar is substantial, I would prefer band type collar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LLBEANSHOPPERINCGCA WHERE'S THE PLUS SIZES????
Please start carrying more plus sized tops. Many women are top heavy and need the extra room. This top is sooo cute but runs small. LLBEAN would sell many more if they offered them in Plus sizes. Also, please try to carry women's shirts that are longer in length. Everything seems so short and with shrinkage, it's even worse. I love LLBEAN but please expand your line of Plus sizes.

I have both the long and Short sleeve in this shirt and like very much. Tried this sleeveless in the same size I order for Long and short sleeve but too tight around my chest. So exchanged for an XL.
It was too generous and created gaping views in armhole. So sent back again and ordered the S/Sleeve instead in my usual size L and just fits like a dream. I'm ordering two more today so happy with the shell pink and white colors. The pale turq. seemed a bit uniformish when I matched it with a khaki skirt, but like the Lapis Quartz instead. If you aren't too busty then the fit should work for you. Its really a nice top with the slightly fitted design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LLBEANSHOPPERINCGCA Why Wont You Carry this in PLUS Size?
Love these tops, but they run way too small.
After seeing many reviews asking LLBean to carry
these is PLUS sizes, I'm surprised they still are not
being offered in PLUS sizes. If they did, I would buy every

Have purchased 6 of these shirts over the last couple years. I am a serious organic gardener and whether I am covered in dirt or water the shirts clean easily and dry fast. Love them.

I have this shirt in several colors with long sleeves and purchased the white sleeveless one for a recent trip in the Balkans where the weather was hot and humid. Very classy shirt that I wore many times, out over pants or skirt and belted (or not) and other times tucked in. Dresses up with a scarf. I got comments from other travelers that I looked so classy each time I wore it. Has several useful pockets in a secure location to keep room key, money, copy of passport. I washed it in the sink and hung to dry and it was ready to wear the next morning. I just bought my second and third ones for a trip to Africa. The green is very pale and muted....lovely and goes well with many colors...and I am not a fan of green. The yellow is a nice, soft pale color that also complements several of my pants and skirts. Sizing is close fitting. I am between a small and a medium petite and the medium fits me well. I ordered the small and had to return it.

Very cool and comfortable. Perfect for the hot and humid late-summer weather. Good coverage with appropriate sized armholes. I like the slightly longer length compared to other sleeveless tops. After reading the reviews, I decided to size up one size and I'm glad I did, hence the 4 star rating

I bought two of these shirts before a summer hiking trip that I knew I'd be sweating bucket loads on. My shirt dried 99 times faster than my husbands cotton tee. I really liked having this shirt! Only wished it came in petites. It was a little long on me at 5'3. Be great if I was a tuck it in type girl ... but I'm not! Still a great shirt!
