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.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Coyote12 Just bought my 4th one!
I wear a cardigan or a casual jacket to work almost every day, and so I am on a constant search for the perfect "underlayer" - a tank or sleeveless top that I can wear next to my skin underneath a (potentially scratchy) cardigan. These little sleeveless tees fit the bill perfectly. The neckline is high enough to look professional at work, and the straps are nice and wide. Best of the all, the fabric has a lovely, silky feel, and it retains its shape after many washings. I reach for one of these tops multiple times per week, year round. Overall, a great purchase.

Rated 1 out of 5áby applecreek51 pima sleeveless tee
I purchased several sleeveless tees thinking they would be the same tees as I had previously purchased, but they are not. The darts on the sleeveless tee have been removed and that very simple dart really made it look feminine and the drape on the tee was wonderful under a jacket. Now the tees are boxy and long and do not look very professional with dress pants and under a jacket. I have been a very loyal customer of LL Bean for over 30 years and have been very disappointed in some of the changes LL Bean has made. Fabric and quality just has not been the same lately. I always purchased LL Bean because their products were always very well made but I'm not so sure that is the case anymore.

I have this shell in 9 colors. So practical for wearing under sweaters. Soft and great color.

Rated 1 out of 5áby TallerShopper Please put the darts back!
I have SO many of these wonderful tops from the days when they had darts on the sides of the front--makes an unbelievable difference in the way they appear! They were so flattering and feminine-looking.
Now they are shapeless boxes, and it's really a shame, because there are wonderful new colors that I'd love to get. If adding the darts means that they cost another $2, fine. LLB, these are tops for WOMEN--please make them look that way!

Rated 2 out of 5áby Nick0 Shapeless and uncomfortable.
Returned. The fit was terrible. It hung on me like a bag, very boxy, and the crewneck felt containing. Exchanged it for the much more flattering 'Double L Rib-Knit Tank.' (I'm a 5'4'', 115 lb, B-cup; purchased size Misses Regular XS.) (Petite XS might have been better fit.)

Rated 5 out of 5áby RamblinRose so glad to find these!
I was looking for something to replace a basic 100% cotton tank that another company has discontinued and stumbled across these. I think they're great. I never knew them when they had the darts that other reviewers are complaining these lack, but I'm happy they don't; darts never sit right on me, and they sound odd for a knit top to begin with.
I find the fabric soft and a good weight, so I don't know what the problem is there, either. I hate the trend towards clingy, stretchy, long tops for women. Most of us aren't built like college girls any more. I also like the current "falls to high hip," which is way too hard to find in a knit top. I now own several but would appreciate having a wider color range in petites.
Thank you, L.L.Bean! Keep this one coming!

Rated 2 out of 5áby coolbeans Please bring back the older sleeveless shells
I used to love these shells. As other reviewers have stated-the older shirts were made of more comfortable material(thinner for summer) and MOST OF ALL- what happened to the darts. They fit so much better before. I can't even wear them now. I miss them as my old shirts are wearing out and I had to return the new ones because they just didn't fit right! I wonder if the people who like them now just didn't experience them before and do not know what they're missing. It would be so nice if you brought back the darts and the material that draped so nicely.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Shazzz So soft and durable too
I have had a few of these for about 2 years, and they have not lost their shape or picked up any permanent stains. They are lightweight for coolness, but not flimsy at all. They are so soft I sleep in them in summer. The colours are great and don't fade with years of washing.
