Rated 4 out of 5 by gratefulgma pretty, soft light-weight sweaters
I have 3 of these soft sweaters in my usual M size, and the fit is good (comes to my mid hip on my 5.6 body). I do have to say, however, that the cranberry print one is a little shorter in both sleeves and body. I am keeping it because it is very pretty and versatile, but I`m going to be very careful when washing it and hope that it won`t shrink. The navy and white sweaters are a little bigger and very soft and pretty, too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Seattlejanie Really cute
I got the red flowered sweater, pretty true to size in line with what I usually get when I order small in bean sweaters.
The red flower print had quite a bit of mocha, with a little apricot & very little cream tones in it. It still worked for me with the amount of red in in the print.
As for length, on me it went to hip length.

Rated 5 out of 5 by musicgrandma longer would be better
The cranberry includes a few other related hues, too, which pair well with a lot of my orange/coral/deep red clothes.My XS fits true to size,but I probably should have ordered one size up to fit more loosely over a layer underneath. I would also prefer a couple of inches longer length.
So far has held up fine after a few washings.I haven't put it in the dryer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Charlestonbornandbred Solid vs prints
I have both solids and prints. Washed carefully according to directions. Solids, a cotton with nylon and spandex, washes beautifully with minimum shrinkage. Prints are 100% cotton, and they shrink substantially in length and sleeves. Both are lovely. Size up in prints and wash before returning. Order your size in solids. Then you can relax and enjoy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by FromMIblm Not blue and poor fit. Going back!
Beware the color is more greenish-teal than blue. I don't like green. The fit is also unflattering. The arms are very loose/baggy. I wear lots of other brand XS and this one is a tad too short. It would not cover my belt line on my dress pants.

Love this sweater for all seasons. So soft and perfect warmth
I returned my beloved black one the thread pulled out around the neck. Black was out of season so I took the blue and was told they would be back in the fall. I would of kept and fixed had I not been told it was a staple in the LL Bean line.
Now I no longer see the sweater at all in plus sizes. Very dissapoint to loose such a stylish option in my wardrobe.
Please bring the plus sizes back in the product!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by kitK Get a size small than your usual
Ha! I should have read other reviews before purchasing this sweater. I bought the mallard green in medium, my usual size. I really like everything about this sweater and love the color, but it's way too big. I'm online now trying to find the same thing in small, but see that color is not available.
Thanks to all who write reviews! You're awesome. You've helped me many times.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SunbeltGirl Cute and lovely material.
I bought this in the mallard green and it is lovely. I can't wait until it gets cold but this sweater is great to take now it if I'm going out to dinner. Restaurants are always cold and this is perfect.
It's light weight but lovely material.
The green is a very rich, bold color.
The sweater lays nice and it has a very quality look.
I liked mine so much that I also ordered one for my mom and one for my daughter.

Rated 1 out of 5 by ladylondon TOO BIG
I purchased two of these sweaters (navy and white) I ordered the size I usually take and they are swimming on me, I tried washing them gently and putting them in the dryer (while watching them carefully) to see if they would shrink a little but they are still huge
very disappointed as I really wanted them. A smaller size would have been too small for me.
