Rated 5 out of 5 by CleverJane Need short sleeve scoop necks also..
These are splendid, with the long legged pants to match, and the silk jersey fabric is far more comfortable against the skin than the pointelle. Please offer some in warm weather styles in short sleeves and scoop neck. The white is pretty. We use these as basic underwear, pyjamas and an unobtrusive layer for colder weather dressing. They pack light and small, and dry very rapidly when travelling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Grandma5X Women's Silk Underwear, Scoopneck
I am very happy with this scoopneck silk underwear. It is very soft, smooth, and comfortable to wear and gives just the right amount of extra warmth in cold weather when worn under my regular clothing. I wash it in a mesh bag in a regular load of laundry and dry it briefly in the dryer before hanging it up to air dry.

I received this silk top and it is lightweight and very comfortable. Would recommend to others. Does not add bulk.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Dutchmamaof4 Thin
I ordered the top & bottom to take to Japan this spring, knowing the weather could potentially be quite cool and don't want to travel with anything heavy. I think they will work fine, however, the top is not as long as I'd like. They are very thin, and you can see right through them so cannot wear on its own. I took it to montana this week and it was comfortable, but naturally still had on my hot chillys, a turtle neck, sweater & jacket over it, so hard to say if it did any good. The reviews said it kept people warm, but it was hard to say it was much more than a thin silk top. They run quite large, I am a size 14 top & 5'7" but not real busty and purchased the XL and its baggy across the chest. A large would probably fit better, but I'm afraid it will be even shorter. I like the little detail around the neck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by grampysgirl The perfect first layer
Love the light but warm first layer without adding bulk. A must have especially this super cold winter!

Rated 3 out of 5 by suttonfran Inadequate fabric, sleeves almost too short
I have other silk underwear tops whose fabric is a bit more substantial than this one - as this one *should* be : mine came with snags in the fabric and I've acquired a number of other snags since. I guess it doesn't matter as its an underlayer, but still...
The fit is ok - it'd be better if a v-neck were available, or at least without the scallop neck trim, or just a little wider neck? - the sleeves are long enough, but only just.

Rated 4 out of 5 by OrcaB Thin and warm
Fabric is a bit on the thin side, but it is a nice warm base layer, silky smooth under other clothing. Good degree of warmth for its lack of weight and bulk.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RDW2015 Silk T-shirt
I purchased the silk t-shirt in white. I was very surprised at the high quality of the undershirt. It was thin and very soft, but keeps me warm. I can put a shirt on top without it feeling bulky. I plan on getting the black silk shirt now. This is wonderful for cold weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jg2010 Exactly what I wanted
The silk underwear items are perfect for that extra, light layer under sweatshirts or sweaters for winter in Texas. After looking at as many places as I could find that carried silk underwear, LL Bean price far outweighed the other places. Since I have been a customer for many years, I knew the quality would be top notch. Now, I want the turtleneck style in this same item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DelitedwithBean LLBean is the best
Once you try the silk underwear you will wonder why you didn't try it sooner. The silk is warm in winter and cool in summer. I wear it under my sweaters and as a top for sleep wear. I am thrilled with the silk underwear.
