Rated 3 out of 5 by PortlandOregon2 Cardinal red layering tank
Cardinal red is very orange. Definitely looks more orange than red. Otherwise, it fits nicely. I love these shirts, but not in this color.

Rated 1 out of 5 by filumena2 The unshrinkable layering tank..........
Not a fan of this tank top. It's unshrinkable because it has so much spandex in it. Just don't like the feel of the fabric. Feels like you're wearing a bathing suit top. Sorry if that sounds harsh...but it's true....And the medium size is a little too snug and the large is a little too big, especially in the hips. Some of your other tanks aren't as generous in the hips, & are a little shorter in length, which is good. Couldn't you make the different shaped tanks in more like colors to fit the different shapes wearing them, Think it's a shame that this tank top is the only tank top that has color matches to the new Pointelle cotton/linen sweaters. Why not make more tank tops to color coordinate with these dressier sweaters & also having a scoop neckline,.... in All Cotton!....like the Double L rib knit tank or the other cotton pima tank tops. Some people don't like spandex! That's how I feel...Sorry llbean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by wendye great tank
Based on the reviews and the fact that I am between xs and small, I got the small and the fit is perfect for what I wanted. Not skin tight, just skims me. I plan to wear it as a summer top with skirts. Armholes also fit perfectly, but then again, I am a swimmer (with the shoulders that go with it).

Rated 5 out of 5 by AnimatedAnimator Cute, Comfy, Fluid Fit
I have never purchased a Bean tank top before, and am quite pleased with my first go. It has a nice non-binding fit, looks smart and well constructed, not cheap and flimsy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by 10000000000 Comfortable tank
Today, I'm ordering 4 more of these tanks. I wear them for yoga class and the spandex is just right. I have been wearing these tanks for a year or two and they wash and dry nicely and I just fold them up and throw them in my yoga clothes drawer. The only reason I don't give them a 5 star is that they are an inch or two too long. I order the XS and I'm 5'4", about 115 lbs. A petite size would be better, but is not available.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Pocus At least 2 sizes too small
I bought my usual size T-shirt and couldn't wait to try it on. The shirt is highly fitted (nicest way to say it) and even then came to be at least 2 sizes too small. If you like a more fitted look, you could possibly do with 1 size larger.
I also had bought 3 colors, white, yellow and cardinal red. The white and yellow were perfect but the cardinal red was not cardinal or red! It was alot more orange than red meaning the color name was erroneous. How about "ember red" instead.
Needless to say, I will be sending these back and may reorder a larger size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by karsmitty2 LOVE this tank
The material used in this tank is great. It's more along the lines of a slim fit, contouring to the body. I think it looks flattering on and my usual size Medium in LL Bean fits me perfectly.

Rated 2 out of 5 by filumena2 Tank Dots.....
The Tank Dots are cute but..............
Am disappointed in the fit! Got my usual size in tank tops. The top fit is fine on top, however the bottom was too wide for my frame....And a little on the long side to tuck into pants. Don't always tuck my tank tops in, so you would then see how baggy the tank would fit around the bottom.And another reason that I'm giving these Tank Dots 2 stars is the spandex material. Even though it only has 6% spandex, it makes the tee too stretchy. Maybe it's me but just like the all cotton tank tops, like the Double L tank top, that's all cotton & has a bit of a scoop neck. But do love the wonderful colors and dots in these Tank Dot Tees..They are made well & will be cute looking on someone else but...Just not for me!.....Sorry llbean!

Rated 2 out of 5 by evgeneia Terrible fit on my body
This tank is well made and appears to be very good quality. Unfortunately, the fit is just terrible on me. The arm holes and chest are too large, and the material gaps unattractively. Yet, the abdominal area is too tight. I don't have a large belly--pretty average in proportion to the test of my body (more pear shaped).
While I prefer a little length in my tops, this was too long and fitted.
I bought a couple of colors expecting to like the shirt--but they're all going back...

Rated 4 out of 5 by columbus colors please
I liked this and bought another...great fit, washes up nicely, not too long or too short, fabric is soft and not too thin. I would give it 5 stars if Bean would update the color choices! How about gray? Or a nice kiwi green? Or pale yellow? Seems like their color choices are quite old fashioned/out of style.
