Rated 4 out of 5 by BeckyinOhio Pretty Tee but too short
I love the scoop neck and elbow length sleeves as well as the magenta color, but am returning this tee due to the short length, as other reviewers have commented. I was also surprised that the pima cotton fabric is not the same thickness as previous Bean tees I purchased many years ago and still wear, but would have ignored this fact if it had fit to my liking.

I ordered two of these shirts certain they were going to solve all my problems of needing a form fitting black tee to wear with skirts in the workplace, but with sleeves long enough to cover my tattoos. The idea was right, but the shirt was not. I actually ordered two of them in L. I normally wear an XL and am quite busty, but know that LLBean shirts tend to run big. It was very big! The sleeve length was right on, but the sleeves were baggy and the shirt itself was a big square. I'd read the other reviews about it shrinking to the right size so I tossed one in the washer before even wearing it. It came out in half its size! I am 5'6" and have a very short torso -- it was above my belly button. The sleeves stayed the same, the shirt stayed just as wide, but I lost 2"-3" on the torso!
The material is very nice! I wanted to love this shirt, but could not. I want to love your shirts, LL Bean, but they're so short and wide! I'll keep trying.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Deena1978 Awesome fabric, wish it was longer
My title says it all -- the fabric is beautiful and washes like a dream, but the length feels quite short and boxy. This would be my dream tee, my holy grail, if it were just a little bit longer. 2-3 inches maybe. I know some people like the length -- so why not also offer it in a tall size?

I have been buying tees for many years from LLB and have always been satisfied with them. This tee is exceptional in that the neckline is lower, but not revealing. The new twist with the sleeves is great for coverage, but still cool. Perfect drape. Thank you for this tee.

I own the Pima Cotton Tees, Elbow-Sleeve Scoopneck in 5 different colors. The fabric is dressy, the cut is perfect, and the sleeve length is flattering. I am comfortable removing my sweaters or blazers at work (when the indoor temp fluctuates), because these tees look office-appropriate on their own.
Sadly, LL Bean discontinued the long-sleeve button-front Pima shirts that I used to wear as cardigans. They made for fashionable "sets" when paired with Pima tanks or tees. The replacement "fly-away", open-front monstrosity is not the usual tailored look I expect from LL Bean. I hope LL Bean brings back the button-front shirts for those of us longing for a cleaner look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BoCla Very satisfied customer
I love the LLBean pima cotton tees for women, especially the elbow length sleeves since I wear a compression sleeve on one arm and the tee sleeve is long enough to cover the top of it. The fabric is soft and washes extremely well. It never pills and does not fade. I am very reluctant to buy any other brand of tee unless it's a color that LLBean does not have. Thank you for such an excellent product!
Please order more red tees!

This is a step above a plain tee, however it is cut large and boxy. "Semi-fitted" is a generous description. Size down for semi-fitted.

I bought three of this shirts. Wore one of them once and wash it. It now has little holes on on it. I will not buy T shirts that can not be wash

Rated 5 out of 5 by webgal318 Soft, soft, soft and I love the quality and fit!
I previously ordered the same shirt in petal pink and I just received the white one today. I ordered a Small Petite and it fits perfectly out of the package and I love it MORE after it has been in the washer and drier. It shrinks just to the right length especially when I pair this shirt with a skirt. If you are looking for a longer tee, then don't order a Petite or go one size up. I have a 34" in chest and the fit is perfect! Oh, yes, I love the elbow length sleeve because it looks a little dressier! Now make this in a soft mint green please!

Liked it but only prior to the first wash. It became significantly shorter.
