Rated 5 out of 5 by wygardener great gowns, but no selection
I've owned more than 12 of these gowns & they're great & long lasting. They wash well & are ever so soft. I live in them when I'm at home.
Bean:your color selection is minimal, at best

Rated 2 out of 5 by lobstershift Not like the good old days
The gowns that I ordered last year are thin, cut oddly, and are uncomfortable and cheap. Already, the elbows of both have worn out.
Alternatively, nightgowns sold by Bean's competitor last and last, with thicker fabric and more generous cuts.
I've come to the conclusion that Bean's thinks it can get away on its reputation, and no longer has to sell clothing that's cut well and meant to last. It's no longer a "first class" choice when I need to look for something.
And I started out as a Bean's purchaser in 1976. It won't be my first choice forty years later.

Rated 5 out of 5 by VarsityTeamDogWalker Love this silky cotton nightgown!
I cannot say enough about this nightgown. I love it and own it in all L.L.Bean colors. It washes perfectly, the fabric is softer and silkier than any other nightgown and it is 100% cotton. The color doesn't fade. I prefer this style because it is below the knee. I cut and hem the sleeves because I like elbow length short sleeves. Now, it is perfect. P.S. I also love the zip front robe in the same fabric.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jkautz Comfortable Nightgown
I love this nightgown, but wish it came in more colors. I am not a print person, but the plain one only comes in blue at this time.

Rated 2 out of 5 by DecorahGrandmother Cheap scratchy poly thread makes no sense
The thread used is ridiculous. I have worn the supima ls tees all winter and loved the fabric and the cotton thread used in manufacture. Now I have this nightgown that touts its softness except I have to turn it inside out for sleeping and I am not the only review to mentions this. I like the style and fabric but what were they thinking off? Will this be changed in the future and if so how will I know? I would like to give 5 stars but it makes me feel strange to wear a good quality garment inside out looking a bit deranged because what, is this thread cheaper? It will certainly outlast the life of the nightgown I am sure. Instead of ordering more I am at a loss if I should keep or return.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 43yearoldmom Best nightgown I have ever owned
This is the perfect nightgown. I love the softness, and the styling is cute! Finally a comfortable and conservative nightgown that is not a sack! My teenage daughter actually noticed it and said she thought it was so cute that she wants one! So now I am getting myself another and her one as well. Thanks LL Bean!

Rated 5 out of 5 by DLighted Luxuriously soft! Just the style I was looking for
You'll love the softness and "aaah" feeling of this gown! I was looking for a 'tweener weight gown with short or mid sleeves. This one is perfect. I sometimes need Bean's Xsmall on looser clothes and that was just right for this nightgown. I chose the floral print. Very feminine! I'm delighted with it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by OneLuckyLady I love this nightgown
Everytime I wear this nightgown, I enjoy how silky smooth, soft, and light the fabric feels. For my comfort, flannel is too warm and heavy and binding, but this nightgown is comfortable and warm enough without being too heavy and restrictive of movement. I have used it many times so it has been washed several times, and the fabric is still smooth and soft as new.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Clothessensitive FINALLY!
While not my style pattern-wise, this nightgown is the first one I could find in years to replace my worn out one that doesn't BUG me! Size is true, the co. info is stamped on (no annoying tag!) and it is SOFT. So relieved to find this. How about the same thing in tall size and long sleeves, llbean? But thank you in the meantime.

Rated 2 out of 5 by TeeshirtShopper Not a comfy gown
I found this gown small and too form fitting. I ordered a large and have been wearing size large clothes from LLBean for years that were very comfortable. I prefer gowns that are relaxed and generous in size. This one is not, the tail is the almost same width as the middle and bunches up during the night. The fabric is beautiful and has a nice feel, but the seams are itchy. It was a big disappointment
