Rated 3 out of 5 by Maya71 Plus Size Please!!!
Please make these in Plus Sizes!!! My mother loves this sweater but she really needs the next size up. 1 X is a little more roomy for her.

Rated 4 out of 5 by shoppingpro Nice classic
this sweater is a classic- I bought it in a large- vs my med I usually buy based on other reviews- not sure I needed it- I have laundered it and its still a bit roomy.... Maybe the med's ran way too small- but I'm keeping it. I am 5'5"- 150lbs

Rated 5 out of 5 by JRTlady Lovely sweater and color!
When this wonderful sweater arrived I thought I wouldn't get to wear it until next winter, then our unpredictable SW VA. weather kicked in so it will barely get above freezing today. I bought the Bright Water Blue which is like a deep lavender. It is very comfortable to wear and was on sale to boot. Very happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DaffodilGirl My favorite sweater
I love everything about this sweater! First, the weight is just right for me--warm, but not so thick that I'm uncomfortable indoors. Since I don't like to be too warm, I don't wear a layer underneath, and the cotton knit is very soft against my skin. I'm 5'4" and sometimes need a petite, but the length of the sleeves and the sweater of the Regular Large is perfect. If you're taller, it may be too short for you. I got the light green and the color is beautiful. Every time I've worn it, someone has complimented me on this sweater. The color is a real pick-me-up after this long, hard winter.

I have so many of the Double L sweaters - all styles and colors. I wear them all year long. Well made and look dressy enough for the office.

Took the advice of other reviewers. The petite does run small. Would have gotten a petite medium but chose petite large.
It fits perfectly - sleeve length, sweater length. I'll be able to layer under it. Beautiful color. Heavy weight and warm for inside my cool home. Haven't laundered it yet, but looking forward to wearing this for a long time. Thanks, LLBean!!

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.
