Rated 5 out of 5 by vettelady782 Great shirts
After reading the reviews that so many have said that these shirts shrink, I don't know what they are doing to make them do this. I have numerous shirts, 3/4 sleeve, short sleeved ,crew neck, v-neck, and long sleeved ones and not one of them has ever shrunk. They are the best t-shirts in the world. One drawback, I wished they carried a pretty red in the 3/4 sleeve year round.

Ordering up a size was not the answer I had hoped it would be. I was looking for a nice cotton shirt I could toss in the dryer, but even on a low setting the sleeves shrunk and the fit of the shirt was too big and boxy. I'm reordering in my regular size, will do cold water wash and line dry. I love the length and style of this shirt, and the pima cotton fabric. Would welcome some heathers/muted colors. Thanks LL Bean for the great return policy and offering a variety of 3/4 length sleeve shirts.

After reading a number of reviews, I decided to write one myself. I have been buying these shirts--both long and short sleeve--for several years. I live in Arizona, so I wear them year round. I have never had one shrink and love the feel of the fabric--However, I always do my laundry in cold water, so maybe that makes the difference. I would be happy if they were a little shorter, but I have a serger if they are too long!

I wrote a review a long time ago. I have this shirt in so many colors I cannot count. Love it. It is perfect for all year long. Please keep on bringing it in lots of colors.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CopaceticPJC Thanks Reviewers!
I love this style of top -- cotton v-neck with 3/4 sleeves, a good weight of cotton fabric, not too flimsy. Thanks to reviewer posts, I ordered up a size, washed the top in cold water and dried it on a low setting, and, wow, did it shrink! The fit is a little boxier than I like but the most annoying thing is how the sleeve shrunk up and the binding at the bottom is a little tight. I'm now concerned about the effect of future washings.

I love this top. I have been ordering this three quarter V neck for years and decided to try in the color beeswax. I just love it! It brightened up my day. It will continue to be my go to favorite top.

Rated 1 out of 5 by FLReviewer Boxy, Short, Shrinks!
So disappointed in these shirts. The colors are beautiful but the shirts don't wear well. I ordered them one size up. Even on the gentle cold wash cycle and NO dryer the shirts all shrank horribly and ended up looking boxy. I am 5' 6" and these shirts are now waaaaay too short. They also seem to look "old" quickly. I much prefer L.L. Bean's pima cotton v neck long sleeve shirts but it seems they are being phased out! Bummer!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by ArlHtsShopper Major Shrinkage
I purchased one of these shirts and liked it so much that I immediately purchased several more in different colors. However, I was very disappointed after washing them (on cold and drying on low for 10 minutes). They shrunk INCHES in the length. While I normally, like my t-shirts a little shorter, these are so short I wouldn't wear them out of the house. Other than the shrinking, I think they would have been great. I have never experienced shrinking from LL Bean. This is VERY DISAPPOINTING!!

I'm just 5'5, so I expected these to hit me about mid hip or so. NOPE. And then they shrunk.

I love these shirts, until I wash them. The just keep shrinking and shrinking. I've tried buying a larger size. I wash them in warm water and dry on low. They still shrink. I wash them in cold water and line dry. And they still shrink! Meanwhile, I'm loosing weight so I know it's not me. I have several of them now and I'm thinking about taking them ALL back for refund. I loved the 3/4 sleeve, V-neck unshrinkable shirts, they were great. So of course, they no longer have them. Please bring those back!
