Rated 2 out of 5 by Emma1967 There's nothing bright white about it.
It describes it as bright white when really it's medium beige. I'm 5 foot three and have small upper body. I ordered a XS. When I put it on the arm holes were so big you could see the whole side of my bra and stomach. The straps needed to be shortened to keep from showing all my cleavage. The material was so thin that you could easily see through it. I see that a lot of people liked it from the comments but it just didn't work for me. Just know the XS is more like a medium and like I said above it's not white it's beige. I'll be sending mine back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Birdie12 low cut
This shirt is a great layering shirt, after I sewed the shoulder straps to make them shorter and the bust line higher. The bust line was very low on me as cut. The material is nice and soft, and the length nice and long - but not too long.

The quality of this tank is exceptional as well as the price. I've worn it under a sweater in the winter, paired it with a blazer and jeans in the spring, and as the weather warms up will wear it with capris or shorts. It washes up well and the color (blue) has not faded or pilled. The medium fit is true for my average 5'7" frame. I found the neckline to be perfect and the armholes cut just right.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Paigeroo good basic tank
I bought this in muted gold, which was a major gamble for me. The colour is great in person. It is definitely a mustard sort of yellow. I don't like using this descriptor, but it really is very "mad men".
I am 5'9 and about a 12, and the large fits me well. I'm quite busty (DD) and it has enough room through the chest and did not pull at all. It's a nice, flattering length (not too short, hurray!). It is not clingy in the tummy area either.
I have been able to wear this to the office tucked in with a dress skirt, but only on more casual days. I don't think I'd wear this to meet with clients, because it definitely just looks like a cotton tank top, albeit a nice one.
I have a steamer, which I find is the absolute best way to smooth wrinkles in any LLBean signature stuff. I have easily gotten away with washing dry-clean only stuff, because the steamer is way more fool-proof than an iron. Our of the wash, this shirt definitely needs some sort of smoothing. Might be a pain to iron a cotton tank, but if you have a steamer it's a non-issue.
My only complaint about this shirt is in regards to colour-fastness. I wore this one evening when I got a bit of oil splattered on the front. I treated it with Shout, which in my experience has never damaged any of my clothes. I then washed it on cold, with cold-water detergent. When it came out of the wash, the treated spots were significantly lighter, almost like they'd had a run in with bleach (which they had not). So this shirt is unfortunately now pajama-wear.
For the price though, I think I will give another colour a shot. Who knows, maybe just a one-off problem.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Beangirly Great Basic Tank
I bought this for casual wear originally and have wound up with five in different colors. Perfect for everyday wear or worn with office attire.
The fit is great, I am 5'3" and usually find tops a little too long but this is not an issue here!
Very comfortable, looking forward to some new colors!

Rated 4 out of 5 by LLBeanTXfan Great basic canvas
I bought this in Flint, primarily for work, but I have worn it casually as well. It pairs with my suits just as well as it does with shorts or jeans. Living in the South, one can never have too many basic tees and this one is a great change from the hackneyed "white t-shirt." Yes, it doesn't come wrinkle free, but that's what you get with a modal/cotton blend. *NB though, I air-dry all of my clothes, so ironing doesn't take as long for me on this top.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lanaloo Size down
I should have gotten an extra small. I am 5'9'' 135 lbs with a small bustline and the size small is a little too big. However, the material is lovely and soft, the tank hits me right at the hip, and the neckline is not too low. The strawberry color is more of a pink than red. This a pretty, basic tank but size down if you are built on skinny lines.

Rated 2 out of 5 by BigSkyOhio Very Casual Jammy Tank
For the casual at heart this one, imagine once washed will be messy, low key jammy wear, or one to be ironed after each wash. Colour is a bright pink red, not flattering for this gal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 8beans Cotton/Modal Tee Tank
I received my strawberry tee tank today, and agree with another reviewer regarding the lovely color and nice drape. I wish the navy blue was still available! I would recommend this shirt. I usually order an XL in LLBean shirts as they seem to run a bit small, and an XL is slightly fitted, definitely not a boxy tent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by chickadeesyr beautiful top
The strawberry color really pops and the lightweight fabric drapes beautifully. I wore it on warm days on its own and plan to wear it under a cardigan or jacket now that the weather is cooler. I like that it is long enough to tuck in if desired but looks just as good over the waistband of jeans or skirts.
