Rated 3 out of 5áby evgeneia Have they changed?
I have a Pima tank from a few years ago and absolutely love it! It's held up beautifully, and still looks as good as new.
So, I recently ordered several more in different colors. While the material is just as soft and lovely, the fit is different. Unfortunately, the new ones are unflattering. They're very boxy and do nothing to help my figure. Rather, I notice more figure flaws with the boxiness.
I don't know if the cut has changed, but sadly, these are going back...

Rated 1 out of 5áby AKTiger They shrink *up* rather than in
I own four of these that I bought about a year or so ago. I washed them according to the care instructions and even hung them to dry, but they shrank up so much that I can't tuck them in at all. Very irritating. Trying the unshrinkable tanks instead with hopes that they do a better job, but I'm not pleased at wasting the money on these, so I'll only be wearing and washing one item next time, and if I get the same shrinking, forget it.

Rated 3 out of 5áby JynxMom But I Liked The Same Old, Same Old
I have purchased at least 20 of these sleeveless tops over the past 6 years, because they were just fantastic to layer. I work at a job where layers are a must and these were perfect. Something in the design or material has changed, so I've probably bought my last one. The style is now more casual and I'm not as comfortable wearing them as office attire. I did manage to get several shirts in the old style at a clearance price in the fall, that still have the darts. Unfortunately, after only a few wears and washes, the seams on the neckline and the darts have come undone. I wash them in cold water and hang them to dry, as I've always done. The quality is just not there anymore, which is sad, because LL Bean used to be the first place I turned to for items that lasted.

Rated 4 out of 5áby WoheloWaterWitch Colors are off
I agree with the reviewer who ordered the pink hydrangea color, and upon receiving it saw that it was exactly the same as the petal -- a much lighter pink than seen online for the pink hydrangea. I too will be returning this item, although I do like this shirt and have ordered other colors before. But this shade of pink is much, much lighter than what is shown on the website.

Rated 3 out of 5áby Pozzi Poor Color
The shirt is very nice, 4-5 star. The color "cobalt" is very poorly described, not at all a cobalt blue, it is a purple. I am returning the shirt.

Rated 5 out of 5áby 30yearsofBean love the tanks, but the website colors are way off
I own a bunch of these tanks and I love them for layering under sweaters and jackets. But I just ordered the hydrangea pink color which looks like a medium pink online but when it arrived, it turned out to be a VERY light pink. I already have the petal pink tank and this was equally light though a different shade of pink. I will be returning it because I don't need two light pink tanks. I know the computer images can be deceiving but it's never been this far off before. Other than that, these tanks are great!

Rated 5 out of 5áby Brie3403 Simple and long lasting
I wear this shirt under blazers and cardigans all the time. It is stretchy but does not stretch out. I like that it is high cut (modest) without being prudish or making me feel as if I am being strangled. It is comfortable, washes well, and seems like a great staple piece. I am 5'7" 155lbs and bought the medium in white. It is perfect. So perfect that I went ahead and bought one in black too. The only thing I would say as a possible downside is that there's a bit of a funny smell before you wash it the first time but after that it is absolutely awesome!

Rated 3 out of 5áby Southerngal123 Just Ok for Me
Just received the nautical red shirt in medium today. It is much more fitted then I was expecting. If I remember correctly it said it was "relaxed" fit. For me it's a bit tight. I am a true medium in Bean clothes. I gave it a 3,star because it had a very strong oder to it when I opened the bag it was in. Not sure why that would be. I am letting it air out and will re- try it on. This one may have to go back. Love this color red! Very rich deep red. Match red cowgirl boots so that tilts the scale to the keep side a bit!

Rated 2 out of 5áby PlusSizedSalsaGirl Boxy fit, sending back.
It's hard to find a "Women's"-sized item that has a feminine fit and I struck out with this top. But the fabric was nice and soft, although it would be better if it were a little thicker. Since I bought it in white, it 'shows' more than it would have in a darker color.

Rated 5 out of 5áby 12Sally "Best in the Southwest"
Llbean in my humble opinion is by far the best mail order company. When you see "Pima Cotton Tee" you know that it is going to be the best. They seldom fail. This fabric is beautiful and the color will never fade. I am an old gal 73 years old with a miserable arthritis.
I am thankful for this company.
