Rated 1 out of 5 by abuela69 Shrunk
I tried this top on when I received it and it fit perfectly. I followed washing instructions for cold water and low temp dry. I used the extra low temp on my dryer. When I got it out of the dryer I could tell immediately that it had shrunk. I tried it on again and it looked short and terrible. I bought a Pima cotton tank top from L.L. Bean 10 or 15 years ago and it still looks almost new. No shrinkage and it hangs to my hips and looks very nice. I just think the quality of these Pima cotton tops has gone downhill over the years. I really hate it when clothes shrink after you have bought the correct size and follow washing instructions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tynsal Very smooth fabric and good fit.
I ordered two of these shirts in a 1X and find the fit excellent after washing and being in the dryer. Before laundering it was a bit large on me. Still a bit longer than the v-necks I've ordered for years. I'm 5'2". I like the longer arm length (I'm 69). I'd love to see this shirt in a light mint green. I love the feel of the fabric.

Rated 4 out of 5 by OnlineShopper48 Love this shirt!
This shirt fits great and is flattering. It can be worn casually with jeans or dressed up with a skirt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ILoveOutdoors New colors!
I moved from the LLB's V-neck to the Elbow-sleeve scoop-neck in the last year for a change of look and just recently discovered new colors! I bought one in "ledge" and one in "clover" and like them enormously! Thank you. Please bring more colors to your other true-and-tried staples!

Rated 2 out of 5 by ridergrammy too short
Love the elbow sleeves, material and colors, but shirt is 2" shorter then other brands. I am 5'4" and 115 pounds. I wear XS. Yours are too wide and too short.

by LilyGGirl Love...but they've changed
I absolutely *love* these shirts and manage to buy more every spring/summer. The longer sleeve offers a bit more coverage for my upper arms. The material is gorgeous and higher quality than a basic t-shirt so they're easy to dress up. I wear business casual to work and often pair one of these with a skirt or pants - add on a necklace or scarf and you're good to go.
One big, disappointing exception: they've gotten shorter. I took a picture of last year's green shirt with this year's red on top and there's a significant length difference. I don't know why L.L. Bean messes with a good thing. The length used to be just right - not too long, not too short. This season, however, they border on a bit too short. It falls in an odd spot somewhat between hip and waist level. I'm large chested so I'm sure that has something to do with the fit but...still...bring back the regular length.

Rated 4 out of 5 by yestoshop Great BUT
I bought this shirt in black, white, yellow, peach and pink. I LOVE the sleeve length and fabric but wish it were a little longer. All my friends (in our 50s and 60s) buy this for the upper arm coverage but would love to have a little more length. The boatneck version provides both the sleeve length and the overall length but the fabric is not the same.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Libbysgirl Red jersey
I bought this beautiful red scoopneck jersey in a Small based on other reviews, but when it arrived found that it was much too big. It measures just under 40" under the arm, so I will be returning it for an XS. I usually take a Small in LLBean clothing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cascabin2827 Best Tee Ever
Nicest tee I've ever had. Nicest material. Neckline, sleeves and drape are very flattering. Get all your favorite colors.

by OnlineBeanShopper FYI
Just adding a review to give my experience with this top. First off, I now have 3 of these tops because I found them comfortable, nice colors and a suitable fit.
But.... buyer beware... I am enclosing a photo (not very clear I admit) but it shows how much shrinkage there is in this top. The red is brand new.. The green has been laundered according to label (cold wash, tumble dry low). For me it works as I am 5'2 and the changes in length and width are "almost a good thing". But with so many of LLBean's items today.... buyer beware.
