Rated 3 out of 5 by LeftCoastNow Latest one bought not the same quality
I had previously bought 4 of these sweatshirts in different colors and loved the fit and style. The latest one that I purchased in the same size as the previous ones is larger (looks baggy on me - and no I haven't lost weight) and the material is a bit thinner. The color is lovely and since I will be wearing this sweatshirt for casual wear, I decided not to return it. But I am a bit disappointed. I did notice that the shirt was manufactured in a different country than the previous ones purchased.

I love its soft and smooth texture, its color (soft light green heather), and size (medium for 5'2" frame). I just bought this so I have not washed it yet - will see how it will hold up. I liked it so much so far, however, that I immediately bought the same item with a different color (brushed lavender heather) while it is still on sale.

Rated 3 out of 5 by LuvsBubbly Don't like the stretchy fabric
I bought these sweatshirts years ago when they were all cotton & they have worn like iron. I neglected to note that this garment has Lycra in it, otherwise I might not have bought it. I rarely like rubber in my clothes except sometimes in jeans. Adding spandex to this garment does nothing for the drape of the fabric & merely makes it baggy. We'll see what happens when it's washed. One more thing--it would've been nice to have side slits as my old sweatshirts in this style did.

I bought two of these sweatshirts last year. I loved the fabric and weight of them. They are not bulky at all and feel wonderful. The neck line is the only reason they are getting three stars and not five. The neck has stretched out and looks terrible on both of my shirts. I have not had this problem with any other shirts that I have, only these two. If they were cheap I would have expected this but I pay more for LL Bean's quality and these do not meet my expectations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jestarr Absolutely love these sweats.
I hope these sweats will be back next year. I bought one sweatshirt and pair of pants. They are lightweight and roomy enough. The Lycra in them helps maintain shape and keep out the wind. Mostly I wear them around the house, but wear them to exercise class as well. I liked them so much that I went back for a second shirt and pants. I didn't get much in the way of color choice the second time around, but I couldn't stand not having them if they were in the wash. Bring them back next year, and offer them to men too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by flwesties2 Comfortable Soft Logo sweatshirt
I ordered an XL sweatshirt in both navy & burned orange which is like a coral color and loved their softness and lightweight. I planned to wear them to bed & they are perfect being roomy and comfy. I ordered a navy in L so that I could wear a turtle or mock turtle underneath & do errands, etc. on cool mornings in FL. There were no more coral color or I would have ordered one of them too. Lastly I ordered a medium navy to wear with no other shirt underneath and it also fit well. I am very pleased with all the sweatshirts & their fit & feel. I usually push up the sleeves so have no issue with them being too short. I like the length a little long so see no problem with length. I have washed & dried the coral one several times & it still looks great. I have been pleased with all items I have ordered from LLBean both for me and my husband who takes a Tall XL which is a hard size to find where we live on Gulf Coast of FL. Love LLBean's return policy and all postage free since I have an LLBean charge card.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Rainbow27 LL Bean crewneck sweatshirt
I was a little disappointed with this sweatshirt. I was hoping that it would be thick like a regular sweatshirt and less like a longsleeve crewneck. I love the navy blue color and the fit is quite roomy. It would be perfect to wear in the spring.

This is a roomy and extremely comfortable ultra soft cushy sweatshirt made of a wonderful buttery fabric. I wish there more colors because I would buy every one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by mtbjane Updated version of a classic!
I purchased two sweatshirts, both in xs regular. One is in charcoal heather and the other in light gray heather. For sizing reference, I am 5'1", 130 lbs and 32D. The xs regular is a relaxed fit for me and a tad bit roomy. I prefer my sweatshirts to fit on the longer side to accommodate any shrinkage. There is some shrinkage to this sweatshirt but not a lot.
This is a lovely update to a classic wardrobe piece. The fabric is very stretchy,soft and medium to light weighted. Feels great against your skin! It is not the type of heavier fleece fabric typically used in traditional gym wear. This fabric will drape a bit, but the relaxed fit keeps it from being clingy.
The charcoal heather is a lovely color. Feels exceptionally soft. I have washed and dried these sweatshirts and they still look great. My only wish is that the neckline is cut just a bit bigger/lower.

Rated 5 out of 5 by qscftyjpo Very nice item
I was so puzzled at the 1-, 2- and 3-star reviews, so I read through them to see what people didn't like.
This is not a typical sweatshirt. It seems people were expecting a regular sweatshirt with that fleecy stuff on the inside. It doesn't have that, but it is a heavier knit than a t-shirt. Some said the sleeves were too short, but they are perfect on me. However, I often have a problem with sleeves being too long, so maybe the sleeves are a little short, not sure.
I always order a small, and this fits me perfectly. The band around the hips is not snug, just hangs down nicely over the hips. The fit is relaxed but not sloppy; it's the way a sweatshirt should be. OK alone or can accommodate a lighter garment underneath. It's about 15" across the back, shoulder seam to shoulder seam. The fabric is soft, has a nice feel.
For people in warmer climates this works well because often a heavy garment isn't needed. Colder climates might be a good inside garment with something under.
Not sure what color I got--pinkish. Very pretty.
