Rated 2 out of 5 by lisalyn supima short sleeved shirred nightgown
I owned a great LL Bean short sleeve scoopneck night gown made several years ago. I ordered the current version and the sleeves are tight. The older gown was a more relaxed fit.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Music444 Sooooo frustrated
Had bought Supima nightgowns and robes in past. Fell in love and swore I'd only wear Supima sleepwear from now on. So excited when saw you had gowns and robes. Usually love everything from you but not this time. I didn't get money's worth at all. Like many said it's too short and shrinks all over. I'm 5 foot but when I sit down gown doesn't cover my rear. The fabric is thinner and not as soft as should be. Shirring is not comfortable and plain neck would lay better. There's little flair below waist so NOT ENOUGH ROOM for comfort in bed. It should have plenty of material so when turning in bed I don't get twisted up in a tight tube. These don't have nearly enough fabric. I even bought Mawmaw looking print as I wanted more Supima gowns so badly. I see others say in the past that your gowns were much better quality. Please improve these. Robe and gown will have to go back as not roomy or comfortable. Your agent said more colors coming and I had wanted 4 more items. And now I can't buy for Christmas gifts either. Will check in future to see if design and quality get better. Thanks.

Rated 5 out of 5 I love this nightgown!
I just can't say enough about how nice it feels to sleep in this nightgown. It's super soft, and the fabric is substantial, not thin and clingy. It is so comfortable! I have only washed it a few times, but it comes out of the washer looking brand new. I have read other reviews saying it was short, but I am 5'8", bought a 2X and it's fine. It hits just above my knees. I do wish we had a few more colors to choose from.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Triena I like it
This night gown is a little clingy compared to the older supima night gown, but it doesn't get as twisted when I turn over in bed. Wish there were more colors available.
My old ones are falling apart and I would like a couple more in my drawer.

I have worn Bean Pima cotton tee shirts for many years. This is my first Pima nightgown and I ordered it in my regular tee shirt size. It's really too small and too skimpy.
This is a lovely, soft nightgown but I suggest you order up one size. Perhaps two sizes if you like your sleepwear generously cut.

Rated 4 out of 5 by brb99 NIce gown, but on the short side
Just adding my voice to those who say (1) this is too short and (2) that it runs small. I would normally have debated between a small and a medium, but ordered a large, which fits perfectly (shoulders and hips). Maybe some prefer a shorter gown, but there should be an option that hits at or a little below the knee. This one comes mid thigh, not my preferred length.
I?ve only washed it once, but it came through perfectly. The material is smooth and soft, which is high praise from me, because I?m very picky about that. It would be nice to have more colors, but it?s not high on my list.
So listen up, LLBean: please give us at least the option of a longer gown!

Very soft and lightweight fabric. Perfect for summer. Comfy fit. Attractive style. Would love to see more color options in bright solids.

Rated 4 out of 5 by retiredUSNavy pretty & comfortable
I recently underwent a pacemaker implant & find straps over my left shoulder painful. This very soft cotton nightgown is a jewel, I'd wear it all day if I could! I'm ordering several more.
It could be longer, I'm 5' & it comes to my knees.

Rated 4 out of 5 by naturalfibersplease Very nice and soft!
I just received this sleep robe and it is amazingly soft.
Considering most walk-in, regular stores are now invaded by nasty stifling synthetic sleepwear, this feels like an absolute treat. 100% super soft cotton - wonderful for a restful night.
I did read the few negative reviews and I think I know where some may be coming from, particularly those who have been shopping at LL Bean for many years and may be used to even higher quality. When I looked at the material in the light, it does look like it may be a tad on the thin side and that it might wear out sooner than it should. As for size, I ordered one size up and while it's a little large, this makes it comfortable for sleeping; if it shrinks, even better.
Then again, this is just a sleep robe. It is a tall order to expect years and years of wear out of a night gown in a world where products like mattresses costing thousands of dollars are manufactured to be changed like socks.
I am not sure how this nightgown is going to hold up but in the meantime, it is the softest I have ever had. Plus 100% cotton (natural fiber!!) - which is an absolute requirement for sleep.
Overall very nice - although I would prefer to pay a little less for sleepwear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Happy25y Comfortable and pretty
So soft,,,,, I was concerned that this nightgown would look "frumpy" but it certainly does not! I love all the supima cotton products and would like to see sleep shorts and short sleeved sleep shirts in this fabric. I sized up to large as suggested by other reviewers and this worked out fine. For reference, I am 5'4", 135 pounds.
