Rated 4 out of 5 by PiperL Great Shirt
LL Bean please offer this shirt in more colors! This has become one of my favorite shirts. It is a very flattering fit and covers all my imperfections while still slimming. I wasn't sure I'd like the band at the bottom of the sleeve, but once I tried it on it was fantastic. My only complaint is the fabric around the neckline does seem to be warping a little but I've been able to fix that with a good iron.

Rated 3 out of 5 by KANS Loses shape
I really liked this shirt when I got it. It's a nice weight, and it fit well. But, after several washings (per instructions), the bottom has stretched out so the shirt "flares". The bottom must be at least 4" wider now than when I got it. The rest of the shirt fits great, but this now feels like a "bell bottom" shirt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by fresh Great for less than perfect upper arms
The sleeves are very flattering and not too tight, in my experience, after washing. More colors please.

This shirt is great!! I am 5'4" and 140 lbs. The medium is perfect. The sleeve length is just long enough to cover emerging "bat wings". The shirt is fitted through the torso and looks neat and trim and just glides over any "imperfections". Bought it to wear with maxi skirts this summer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by activesenior11 Please make in Petite size
Liked the tee. But I'm only 5'1"and size Medium and it was too long for me. As a lot of people commented that the sleeves were to tight and very tight for summer. Since it doesn't come in petite sizing it also was big in the shoulders and I had to adjust my shoulders to fit right and the front did not look good. I have to send them back. Next time I will make sure the item comes in Petite sizing, That makes a big difference for me and everything I have ordered from LL bean that is petite sizing I have no issues.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Madriver7 Not a true elbow sleeve
This is a great T-shirt. The material is substantial and of great quality. The v-neck is flattering and the shirt fits great through the shoulders. My only quibble is that the elbow sleeves don't go to the elbow. They stop about 2-3" above the elbow joint. I'd prefer a true elbow sleeve. I think this shirt fits better and wears better than the Supima elbow sleeve scoop neck and would like to see it offered in lots of colors.

Rated 3 out of 5 by KarenFromJackson Shoulder problem
I am 5'6" tall, 124 lbs. I ordered one of these tops on clearance in the red color. According to the size chart I am a Small, but some other reviewers had said these tops run tight, so I bought a medium instead. It turned out to be a bit big; I wish I had gotten the small. But the real problem is the way the shoulders are cut. A couple other reviewers had commented that the shoulders are "weird" and I know what they are talking about. I have somewhat square shoulders, and this top is cut for a person with more sloping shoulders. On me the garment pulls up toward the ends of the shoulders and doesn't lie smoothly. The fabric is nice and I would like it except for that. So if you have square shoulders you probably won't like this top.

I saw this tee online and liked the elbow length. Bought 3--navy, red and blue. The fit is excellent, skimming the body but not too tight with a good amount of give. The V-neck hits just right and the banded sleeves give this tee a trendier, hipper look. One request to LL Bean is to stock petite sizes and add more colors. For reference, I'm 5'5" 120 lbs and purchased XS regular.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MichtoKy Runs a little large
I fall between a size S and XS in LL Bean clothing. This shirt was described as slightly fitted and I saw that other reviewer said it tends to shrink, so I went with the S and have washed it and put it in the dryer several times. While the sleeves are snug, the torso is still pretty baggy on me and makes me look like I have a paunch. Still, I like the color and other things about the shirt, so I may get another one in an XS. For reference, I am about 5'6" and 125 lbs.

I'm a pretty solid 2X and all the shirts & coats I order from LL Bean are 2X. The sizing on this T shirt is really off. I ordered two of these shirts in a 2X and they were too tight, before even washing, so I exchanged them for 3X, which I felt should give me plenty of room. When they arrived they fit pretty well but with no room at all for shrinkage. Unfortunately, after their first washing (cold water, tumble dry on low) they shrunk so badly that I'll have to return them both. Before the wash the measurements were 26 1/2 inches in length and 24 inches wide. After washing they shrunk a full two inches in length and an inch in width. Strangely they shrunk more in the front and less in the back. I'm very disappointed in this product.
