Rated 2 out of 5 by Agolf Fit not real for normal people
Quality of hoodie is all I would expect from LLBean but I wonder who in the fashion business has determined that all women are stick people with long skinny arms and no bust line. I have been a Med (10-12) for 50 years and my weight has gone up by 5 lbs and there was no way I could even zip this hoodie. And the arms were so narrow and long that putting it over a turtle neck would have been a challenge.

Rated 2 out of 5 by tobieh For a bigger version of me
I read the mixed reviews for the sizing on this sweatshirt and opted to size up. I'm 5'7" 145-150, 36C. I ordered Large (normally a Medium) hoping for a little extra room.
The sleeves fit perfectly. The body was another story. HUGE, and I mean extra wide with a floppy band. The seams on the front did not give a feminine shape because they left the panels boxy. The length came down to the tops of my legs. It would fit me well if I had about 30-40 extra pounds on my bod and wanted to hide it. I won't be ordering a size down. The sleeves wouldn't fit and I'm sure the shape would still be as shapeless. My 12 yo has the little girls version in L(14-16), with feminine shaping, which almost fits me. I'm going to try the girls XL (18).

The quality was not what I expected for the price.The sleeve cuffs were stretched out and material was not very thick. Have seen better quality at a resale shop.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Disenchanted1 I own four,would buy another color
I already have four, purchased over three years, and would buy another. It's looking like this item might be phased out. I hope not!
This hoodie is so warm and comfy. I only hang to dry, and the fit stays the same. The finish is still smart even after several washes. I love this hoodie!

Rated 4 out of 5 by clouddancing GOOD SWEATSHIRT BUT -----
I LOVE THE SWEATSHIRT, BUT THE COLOR IS NOT THE SAME AS THE CHART THEY SHOW YOU. I ORDERED THE PURPLE ORCHID AND IT LOOKS MORE LIKE A PINK COLOR. TOO EXPENSIVE TO SEND BACK, BECAUSE IT DOES HAVE SOME WEIGHT TO IT SO I WILL HAVE TO KEEP IT. I WAS LOOKING FOR WARMTH AND THIS SWEATSHIRT HAS THAT. IT WASHED WELL AND DRIED ON LOW SETTING. LOVE THAT THE POCKETS HAVE ZIPPERS, TOO.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Nick0 Super cozy
Seriously warm and comfy. It'll be a go-to layer throughout the cold months, both indoors and out. The vivid outer color is very cheerful, but I'm not as much a fan of the color contrast against the very white interior. The contrast makes me want to wear it full-zipped or not wear it at all. The fit was pretty roomy; there's plenty of space for layers. (I'm a 5'4'', 115 lb, B-cup; purchased size Misses Regular XS.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by NWmtngal Wonderful & Cozy Hoodie!
I received this hoodie yesterday and was in love as soon as I tried it on. I am 5'4" 150lbs. and usually a sz. 12, but I ordered a size large and it is a perfect fit. I still have a little room for some layering if needed. I waited until it went on sale to buy and am pleased they had the color I preferred (gray)....Thanks!! LL Bean for this product!

This hoodie is phenomenal. I sized it up one to be able to put layers under it. Because it is a thick, plush fleece lining it is quite warm without the layering. The outer cotton is top quality and the teal color is very rich. Many people have commented on the hoodie and asked me where to find one. The softness of the lining is not only warm but feels luxurious to the head and face when the weather calls for snugging that hood.

Rated 1 out of 5 by JEM4612 Very disappointed with the outer shell material
I ordered the fleece lined hoodie a couple of months ago in Violet Chalk. The color they sent me doesn't match either the Violet Chalk or the Purple Orchid Heather. It looks a bit like the Heather, but with lots more grey in it. The color is rather masculine. I do like the warmth and the weight of the hoodie so I thought i would keep it anyway. I wish I had returned it straight away. The outer shell material is fading in some spots. It looks kind of like water spots on silk material. I have never seen anything like it before so I am assuming the shell material is faulty?? The item number they sent me is REG 272958 and I noticed online the item number is TK 272958 so I am not sure if there is a difference. Some reviewers mentioned the fit is a bit tight so to order a size up, but I haven't noticed that with mine. In fact, it seems a bit boxy, so I am again wondering if mine was manufactured differently? Mine is from China. Overall I am very disappointed with it and wish I had returned it right away. I was so looking forward to having a cute, warm hoodie.

Rated 1 out of 5 by HatesColdFeet Great....if you're shaped like a box
Shaped like no other sweatshirt I've ever had!! It is VERY boxy. I'm 5'7", 140 lbs. and always wear Medium. Based on many reviews I ordered a size up to gain a little room and length. The chest/shoulders were ok and the sleeves long enough. The weight and thickness are nice.
BUT, the the princess seaming is a waste and is lost in the boxiness of the construction. The bottom band is SO BIG that the sweatshirt just hangs very loosely, allowing air to blow right up your waist. The band needs to be about 5-6 inches smaller. I doubt that going back down to medium will conquer that issue.
Not worth the money, even on sale Back it goes...
