Rated 4 out of 5áby CautionOnSize Size difference
I ordered the on sale jadette, the spruce jadette and the mountain blue in medium. While very nice, the were about an inch narrower around the hips then the purple and the fiery red medium regularly priced Pima boat neck tee that I purchased last week.
Must return for I will need that inch in the holiday season ahead.

Rated 5 out of 5áby GreatShirt Love These Shirts!
I love these shirts! They are so comfortable and dress up or down, and look great with pearls!
I just wish there were more colors to choose from. I would especially love a beautiful bright pink, bright orange and bright green!!!

Rated 5 out of 5áby Bunnysaver My go-to top
While doing the pre-work-week ironing this evening, discovered that I've acquired ten copies of this shirt! (Two of each in some hard-to-find colors.) This is approaching a "uniform!" Love the neckline and the sleeve and shirt length. Has held up magnificently through multiple on-gentle machine washings. #NB: I usually air-dry them.) They hold their shape, never pill, and dress up & down/mix and match with incredible fluency. My absolutely favorite top!

Rated 5 out of 5áby VGYB My fave top ever
I love these tops, great fabric, soft, comfortable, fits a woman's body and goes with everything. I have black, purple, green, pink, navy and white, I buy a few every year to replace the ones I have worn out and that takes lots of washings.

Rated 1 out of 5áby JacyJess What's going on?
I've ordered these shirts for a long time but something is wrong. I'm a short woman - 5"2 and the shirts are so short that I may as well be wearing a belly shirt. This really shouldn't be a problem for me. I am super unhappy with the purchase and will be sending the shirt back. I expect quality from L.L. Bean and lately I just don't seem to be finding it in the clothes I've ordered.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Murpwholovestees Pima boatneck 3/4 sleeve tee -- classic, tailored
This is a very classic pima boatneck tee. Nothing fancy or quirky about it. Fabric is very soft, slightly glossy, as pima cotton often is. True to size -- I wear an XL and this fits perfectly. Medium hip length, bra straps don 't show, just barely 3/4 length sleeves -- I hope they don't shrink at all, but don't know yet. Comfortable, tailored, simple, classic, as many of LL Bean's tops are. I could have one in every color , but . . . :) I buy cotton tees and tops everywhere and at many price points -- these are an incredibly good value for price!

Rated 3 out of 5áby jaghead A Bit Skimpy
I love the color and wish it was a bit larger. It felt skimpy to me. The sleeves are definitely tighter than they should be, but I'm going to keep it and hope that washing it in cold water won't shrimk it.

Rated 2 out of 5áby usmarte SIZING is NOT always consistent...
On 08/29/13, I purchased PIMA cotton boatnecks in SMALL in petal pink & china blue (spring/summer season?). SIZING is OFF on both. I'm generally a SMALL in this tee. Sleeves, from shoulder to below elbow, were tight on my toooo skinny arms, shoulders were narrow, bust was snug, shirt body was quite fitted with a little wiggle room, and lastly, there was a really strong chemical odor (perhaps item was garment dyed?). (I wear size 4-6, 5'7", 125lbs, bust 34")
The colors were pretty & depicted accurately in Bean's web photos. I'm glad I used my Bean Visa for this purchase so return is free!
By mistake, I previously posted this review under the Boatneck Tunic, Three-Quarter Sleeve, Item TA240822. That boatneck tunic is one which I wear and prefer, but it, too, can run inconsistently.

Rated 3 out of 5áby NJKatie Something Has Changed
I've been ordering this top for years. I only wear 3/4 sleeve length and I like tops that have enough room to cover the tummy. This top has always fit the bill. I just bought 3 more to take on vacation. The fit used to be perfect right out of the package. But something has changed. The arms are tighter and the length is longer. I noticed that there is a different tag sewn into it. It has foreign writing on it. Are these tops now being made in a different place than before? Is that why the fit is different? I always wash the tops in cold water and hang to dry. I would like the length shorter, but I'm afraid if I put them in the dryer to shrink the length, the arms will be too tight. L L Bean, I wish you wouldn't tamper with a favorite item.

Rated 5 out of 5áby LovesTheWind Bought 7 of them this spring/summer
I love this shirt for summer?. I?m a "young" 65 but NEVER wear short sleeves or sleeveless so the 3/4 length sleeve is perfect!! The boat neck is feminine looking, dressier than V-neck or crew. Early spring I ordered 3 and I just ordered 4 more !!. I live in Florida and it?s a perfect year round top! The fabric is a lovely silky cotton, thin but not too thin, just a perfect weight and feels soft on my skin!
One reviewer commented on the length. My new one is 24 Ż ? from the back of the neck to the hem before washing. I just washed a new one and dried it in the dryer, it is now 23 Ż?, so if you want to keep the length, do not put in warm dryer (hang up instead) and wash in cold water. I assume it will shrink a bit more as I wash and dry it. So take that into account.
What I didn?t like was that they are some what ?boxy?. I bought size Large to accommodate my bust but it makes me look bigger than I am, so I ?zipped? in the sides about 1? on each side at the waist. Since I do have a waist, I wanted the top to look neater and trimmer.... more flattering.
Other size Large measurements are 23? from arm pit to arm pit and 21? across at the waist.
One reviewer commented on bra straps showing, yes, they can. I move my straps out further towards my shoulders. One could also put double stick tape on the bra strap and pull the top over until it just connects with the tape. Or? be ?in style? like all the young girls and just let it show!! L O L
Thank you LLBean for making this lovely reasonable priced top in such beautiful colors....
and the free shipping!!
