Rated 4 out of 5 by BeanLover83 short sweater
A fair warning to my fellow tall ladies....
I had to return my Double L Cotton Sweater. The material is soft and this is a nice lighter weight sweater. However, it is very short. So short, if I raised my arms my belly would be exposed!!! At 5ft 9in, this sweater is short on me and it will definitely be shorter on an even taller gal. For some reason, it is only this style of Double L sweater that runs short in the torso. I can wear and love my split neck and collared versions with no problem.

I have several of these cotton cable sweaters in different styles and I love them. They wash beautifully, and are warm on chilly days in summer and for air conditioning.

After one wearing the bottom and wrists were completely stretched out and washing did not make it better. I was disappointed. Usually you can count on quality sweaters.

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!!

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.
