Rated 4 out of 5 by JustOnePerson Good, But a Little Skimpy
Overall this is a good quality sweater. I would recommend it to slim friends and those who do not need extra layers of warm underneath. This sweater is just slightly thicker than the majority of women's sweaters these days. It definitely runs small. Thanks to other reviews, I ordered the next size up. But, that was barely big enough. In the end I decided to return it rather than exchange it for a large. That's because this sweater is quite form-fitting and I did not think a large would remedy that. I was hoping to receive an old-style less clingy crew. They work better with my figure and are also warmer. We need truly warm sweaters here in Wisconsin. And, room for layering.

Bought a Petite Large to cover my stomach, fits so perfect with
or without a shirt underneath. Sleeve length is exact and my
arms are a tad long. I am 5'2 115 lbs. There is enough give to
this sweater for someone bigger then me and the fit would still
be perfect. I am small on top so its roomy for me but not baggy.
Hits at the hip, warm and light weight. I have it in black also
just a nice quick sweater for jeans or slacks.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Reensmom56 inconsistent sizing
Let me start off by saying that I own 5 of these, all in size L. I love the heft and cables in this sweater. The colors are rich and beautiful, and they wash very well. Unfortunately, 2 of the 5 that I own have a baggier fit and hang at the bottom as though they are stretched out. I am afraid that if I buy another it will have the same issue.
Please, LLBean: do something about your quality control. I would be willing to pay more it if means going back to the quality that you used to provide each and every time.

Rated 2 out of 5 by NorthernNewYorker50 Good quality but runs small.
I just received this sweater in Teal Shadow in a medium petite.The quality of this sweater looks very good however I think it runs small. I normally wear a medium petite in tops, however this sweater is a little tight, and it is also too short falling at my waist. I am small breasted wearing an A cup. Even if I order this in a large petite it will still be too short, and if I order a regular, the sleeves will probably be too long.

I recevied the mint green sweater as a gift. Color, size & fit are perfect. I was surprised the sweater was so heavy. I haven't seen a sweater that heavy in a long time. Just in time for the snow we got in IN.

Rated 2 out of 5 by StLBerg Odd sizing
I wanted to like this sweater. I have three other Double L sweaters purchased from the current season in two styles. The length of this crewneck is nothing like the other three I own. I ordered my usual size of XS and the sweater barely fit over my head. Once I had it on I couldn't believe how short it was compared to the other styles I own. The length was at least 3 inches shorter than the other sweaters are on me. Oddly enough the arms were the correct length. I am 5'5" and weigh 110 and always wear an XS from L.L. Bean if that helps anyone. I am sadly sending this back. I love the three other Double L sweaters I have so I guess I will try again with another style.

Rated 3 out of 5 by RK22 Shorter than usual sweater
I received this sweater as a gift. The purple color was beautiful. I'm 5ft7in and this sweater is described as hip length. Barely, as it fell just very slightly below my waist and seemed shorter than other "hip length" sweaters I've purchased. Described as slightly fitted but seemed less so than others with that description and the sleeves were also short. Returned the sweater for another style that was longer in both body and sleeve length.

Rated 2 out of 5 by merf An everyday sweater not offered in Navy?
How can an everyday casual sweater NOT be offered in navy blue???? And what happened to the nice easy fitting smooth knit double L cotton sweater in crew and vee neck that is my wardrobe staple?? Very unhappy with whomever made the poor decision to carry this as the only option. I will shop elsewhere.
