Rated 5 out of 5 by Starfish58 Silky soft and feather light
I had an old Bean silk top which I bought years ago, and I knew I liked it. So I bought a new one with the matching pants. I am a size 14 and the large fits perfectly. I like to walk in winter, but the wind coming off the water can get really rough. This underwear works. It's super thin and light, feels good against the skin, and it allows me to walk in cold wind. I plan to get this in more colors.

I haven't worn this item yet, but will in January in Maine and New York. It seems to fit smoothly under my outer clothing so won't be bulky. Plus, it should be really warm. I also like the extra length!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LLBEANGURL Cozy Underwear
It is very cold up north where we live and I wear this underwear from October to May. The silk fits close to the body and adds no bulk, and it keeps me unbelievably warm. The garment appears very light but it has held up very well through lots of washings without any snags or wear. The LL Bean silk underwear is the only kind I have ever worn with such quality and I would never wear any other brand.

Rated 2 out of 5 by MyParentsParent nice material, but runs large
Yes, I read the other reviews and should have listened. Some said this was big, and trust me, it runs very big. I got a medium, but it's so big, it should be called large. And the scoop-neck scoops down SOOOOOO far.... well why wear this if you know what I mean!! The material is nice. Too bad. I'll definitely be returning this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 3DecadesBeanFan Perfect under sweaters!
I live in these from October to April, here in Massachusetts. I need to be in dress clothes frequently, and they are form-fitting enough to be invisible under cashmere sweaters. I am 5'6" and 114 lbs, and the XS is perfect. They wash well, hang dry quickly and MOST IMPORTANTLY for me, the seams inside are soft and non-scratchy. Yes, they are filmy and lightweight, but this is not an indication of poor quality! They are beautifully finished! I am ordering a long-sleeved one this year...the scoop neck should be better under V-neck sweaters.

Rated 2 out of 5 by petitesized too big and too low
When I tried on the long-sleeve scoop neck the neckline was a bit low, though I could have accepted that if the shirt was not too big. I ordered a size small, and I found the length to be too long and was the midsection did not lay flat. It just did not fit properly. I thought of ordering a size XS but think it may be too tight. With the neckline being low and overall not fitting me correctly I decided to return it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Warmwyogirl Comfortable yet warm
I like these long underwear tops because they are comfortable and wash up nicely. I like to wear them under a long sleeve shirt with a vest on for easy long haul driving.
I usually wear a large in sweaters because of washing and drying. Yet I order these in a medium for a closer fit under shirts.
The scoop neck is great because it doesn't show under shirts. But if one wears a v-neck sweater the nicely finished trim on the undershirt can show a bit with no problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 43rose Perfect for fall or spring travel
I take this when I pack in one suitcase for a 10 day trip to Europe in October or the UK in spring. Since black is my go to travel color, I use the black one. It is elegant enough to wear under a sleeveless garment if it is colder than expected. It is light enough to only add a few ounces and very little space to the packing so that I don't regret taking it if I don't need it. I never travel without it if I expect variable weather. This garment is sheer and lovely and doesn't look like "long underwear."

Rated 1 out of 5 by KathyLS Poor quality
This silk long underwear top is definitely not worth the money. It's as thin as tissue paper. The fit is too short waisted. The neckline is too low. I washed it in cold water and hung it to dry. It's pilling and completely shapeless after one wash. I expected better for the price.
