Rated 5 out of 5 by ArtGirl999 Super Comfy!
Generally I wear medium in LL Bean tops. But for these Henley
I ordered large to allow for shrinking as other reviewers reported that shrinking had happened. I immediately washed one of the two that I purchased and tried it on. It was Fine!!! I washed the shirt in cold water and dried with the cotton cool down cycle...
Now I am looking forward to weather a bit cooler so that I can wear my new Henley!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Juniegrl So cute in so many ways, but way too short
I love everything about these waffle knit Henleys but the length. The fabrication is great; love the neckline & the cuffs; multiple great colors. But the length is just ridiculously short. I'm 4'11" so it's not like the length can't accommodate my height. I even tried going up a size thinking that would give me some extra length, but that didn't help. They're not long enough to cover the top of my jeans, much less to tuck in. I just gave a bunch of them away to Goodwill; maybe a child will get them & won't mind that they're so short. I hate writing such a negative review -- I love L.L. Bean & wear many of their products. But these shirts need some revision.

Rated 3 out of 5 by EagleEyes41 Women's sizes fall short
I'm a chesty girl, so I got the 2X in grey last winter. It was a little shorter than I like my tops, but I kept it because it was soft and warm and the fabric is nice and sturdy. It's kind of hard to find rugged, outdoorsy clothes in bigger sizes. But, it's been washed a few times, and now it's just too short. It hovers above my waistband and gets nowhere near my hips. I can still wear it over a tshirt so I don't have exposed skin when I'm working, but it looks kind of goofy. Note to LLBean: plus size clothing needs to be cut a little longer to compensate for drape over a larger bust, not just wider. If it was cut about 4 inches longer, I would probably buy it in every color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by YoYosMum Perfect for Winter
Moved from So Cal to southern Utah last year so ordered 3 of these Henleys & wore them constantly--it's COLD here! Just ordered 3 more for this winter so I don't have to do laundry so often. Theses shirts are kind of snug which feels good. I mostly wear these & the fleece lined flannel shirt all winter long.

I love these shirts & have minimum shrinkage. Very comfortable! I just wish LL Bean would have these shirts in mint green or light green. Some colors are nice but in the fall & winter it"s nice to wear brighter colors and LL Bean carries very few shirts in green. Bring back lighter colors besides the typical white, blue or gray.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MarinaMama I'm living in these!
I got three of these, close-out colors on sale, and I wear them every day here on the coast in springtime. The peony heather is the prettiest pink ever, and I got it in M petite which fits me perfectly (5'4", 125ish). The sleeves are nice and long, not too fitted except for the perfect long cuffs that cover my wrists completely, even in the petite. I like the deep placket; if I unbutton it I can easily pull the shirt over my head without mussing my hair when it's wet (I have curly hair and don't use a dryer on it). For me this shirt is perfect, and I think I'll be able to wear it in the winter with a scarf to keep my neck warm. The fabric is soft, cozy, and breathable; very comfie. A winner!

Rated 4 out of 5 by PersonalStyle Guaranteed colorful warmth, nice shape
Too warm for the warm blooded and not enough fun with so many other choices available. In better health now, I am out and about in Bean's beautiful wool blazers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by gcbari fine garment for the price
I have two of these, and just ordered another. I'd get them in every color, however the brighter colors look awful on me, so I'm limited.
But there're enough, almost...
Every time I'm stumped for something to wear, out this comes. It does shrink in the dryer even on super low, however you can easily bring it back to size with some judicious ironing.
And you can dress it up or down, it's really wonderful.

Rated 3 out of 5 by AncientCrone Comfortable and warm but shrinks
The waffle Henley is nice to the touch, comfortable, warm but not heavy. I ordered 3 colors. All 3 shrunk in length.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JAM45 Wonderful!
I've always liked cotton thermals. These shirts are very soft, they wash beautifully. They keep my body temperature pretty even. I now have seven(!) of them in different colors. Please keep them around for a few years!
