Rated 1 out of 5áby comfycozie Change to rating
I need to amend my previous five-star rating. I was delighted with these shirts, but they shrank about 2 inches in length after the first wash. So very disappointing. I thought I had found a real winner. I am tired of yanking them down as I wear them, so they will be going back. I have had good luck with the Pima tees, so I will give them a try in long-sleeve. Unfortunately, they don't come in 3/4 sleeve V-neck plus size.
Previous review: "I got this shirt in black and cranberry and I am so happy. I am having an increasingly hard time finding simple, plus-sized basics that fit. They are usually made for someone much taller or with a much bigger bust. I am 5'5" and a 3X, and this shirt is a great length -- tuck-able but not too long -- and the neckline is just right. I don't want a V-neck that shows cleavage, which I find is the case with far too many plus-sized tops.
100% cotton? Check!
Sleeve length? Check!
All in all, a great 3-season top. And if the tee I bought previously is any indication, it should pass the wash test with flying colours too.
Thank you, LLBean! The duty charges are discouraging for me, but shipping is fast and free! I will be back for more!"

I really liked this chart out of the package--nice length, soft fabric, comfortable fit and looks good with jeans.
Unfortunately, like many other reviewers--when I washed it, it shrank in length. I washed in cold water, and tumbled dry low for about 15 minutes, then hung to dry the rest of the way.
It's just too short now--I found myself pulling it down when I tried to wear it out.

Rated 2 out of 5áby katie853 Sizing Very Inconsistent
Bought on of these online in China Blue in L, and it was too small. Color was not available in XL, so I ordered it in cream. Unbelievably BIG! Like the fabric and construction of this shirt, but will NOT get any more online. Will be near a store next week, will try some on if available.

Rated 1 out of 5áby mdc124 Shrank too much on first washing
I'll be returning these. I washed in cold water, low temperature dryer, and they shrank inches in length and in width. They also were not "relaxed fit" as described, but slimmer to begin with. I wish I'd read these comments before buying them.

Rated 2 out of 5áby ColoradoJenny Great colors, but they've shrunk
I purchased several of these. I love the colors and the 3/4 sleeve length. However, after only 4 months of wear and washing according to the care instructions, the shirts have shrunk and no longer fall at the hip as they did when new. Now I find myself tugging them down so that I don't bare my midriff when I raise my arms.

Rated 5 out of 5áby rural6 Finally!
Love this V neck! Finally one that's long enough, (haven't washed it yet---hope it doesn't shrink!) not too baggy, great color and available in all sizes! It looks and feels great. Love the deep turquoise. Thanks!
Now I'd like to see it in navy blue, spruce or hunter green, rich violet or a similar darker purple, nautical red, a medium true blue.
Clearly, someone is listening at LL Bean design central! We appreciate that!

Rated 1 out of 5áby WalkerandPainter Poor quality
This has been my favorite Bean tee for years, but the quality has changed. The fabric is thin and does not hold the shape when laundered. This is increasingly true of Bean clothing. The newer tees are only at home shirts. What happened to the clothes for real people, the ones who garden, hike, and MOVE instead of just stand about in fashion clothes? Please bring back the fit and quality of your past. I would love to see some relaxed fit shorter shirts that you once offered.

Rated 2 out of 5áby northbass Loved it, at first.
I loved the shirt when I first got it 3 months ago, fit nice, was soft, and the color beautiful. However, it did shrink over several washings to the point I don't wear it any longer. Expensive t to only wear a few months. All of Bean's t's I've purchased have shrunk up short, I liked the above shirt so much when I got it, I order it in different styles, all which are too short to wear now. Please make them longer so they won't shrink so short, the shirts are cute and comfortable when they fit.

Rated 2 out of 5áby JacyJess So so so disappointed
I've loved Bean's clothes for a long time and always been a loyal customer. Recently I've been more and more unhappy with the quality of the clothes. This shirt is no exception. The length on the shirt was very short and as I washed it, the length got shorter! It was to the point that I would have been wearing a belly shirt. I tried stretching it by hand and laying it on a drying rack etc. I finally gave up and I just sent it back for a refund. Sorry Bean's but this one is no good!

Rated 1 out of 5áby Scottiedogsmom All of my Bean's Tees have shrunk!
I am ultimately disappointed in this product. Last spring, I purchased 5 tees and all have shrunk in length. The 3/4 sleeve is now elbow length and the length of the tees--which were at the hip line when I first received them--now fall just below the waistline. Shrinkage only effected the warp yarns . . . obviously a cheaper yarn or one of poor quality. Otherwise the fabric is still good, but I won't wear these next year--they are now out of proportion and the "waistline look" is ridiculous! I like to purchase quality clothing that lasts more than one season.
