Rated 5 out of 5 by outdoorsy88 Love this!
I was a little hesitant to buy this due to the higher price, but I absolutely love this shirt! I am 5'10", 130 lbs and got a small. It is not tight and very flattering. Typically I have a problem with body length and sleeve length, but the length was flattering and the sleeves didn't creep over my elbows. I didn't experience any shrinkage in the wash and the fabric doesn't wrinkle easily. Great for all seasons and love the classic style - more colors please! :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by suzicruzi2 So wanted it to work for me!
First let me say, the fabric is luscious and I love the feel of it! It is a really, really nice shirt! I got the red stripe, and it's beautiful; just what I wanted. I'm 5'4+, 120lbs and ordered a SM. The shirt fit me the way it should, I think, except for the neckline - it sags in front just enough to make it look odd. I think it comes up a bit high, hitting me at the throat, not like how it looks on the model in the pictures. If I were to just wear it alone, I might be able to get away with it sagging just a tiny bit. However, I want to layer my jean jacket, or my chambray shirt over it, and when I tried both of those on over it, it made the neckline look like a mini cowl neck on me. No way, no how could I adjust the fit to make that sagging go away in front. I suppose the cut of the boat neck is just not the right one for me, sadly enough. I'm really sorry that it doesn't fit me properly and I have to send it back. I was so looking forward to adding this shirt to my Summer wardrobe. Bummer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by KenoWI Shoulders too narrow
5'8" Red large. Great neckline. Bra straps do not show with movement and inverted shoulder triangle looks sharp. Size lg feels nice against skin, good lower hip length and just the right shaping for an older apple body. Exchanging for an Xlg shoulder and hoping the hip width will not be too big.

I really like this shirt. I have one in cream with red stripe, and one in Night. The fabric drapes nicely, the sleeves are long enough that they don't bunch up at the elbow, the neck lies flat. The torso is slightly shaped, but not tight-fitting. The solid color one goes equally well with casual wear or dressier linen skirts or pants.

This is a great shirt! I bought the blue stripe and it is comfortable, classic and fits really well. The fabric is very soft and holds its shape. I highly recommend it and hope they add more colors soon. A blue with red stripe would be fun too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AnnefromCanada More colour options please
Love this shirt because of the fit. It is tapered around the waist. Very flattering! The medium was a perfect fit for me - I'm 155 and 5,9. I wish there were more colour options than red and blue.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MoreBeanTheBetter Not like the model...or even close.
Ugh...seems I'm the only one so far that doesn't love this top. I wanted to, I really did! I went with the Navy, looking for a classy Hepburn style knit top but the top I got was ill fitting. Nothing like the look on the model. Well, I guess if I would have used a clothespin to tighten it in the back, it might have looked like that but without clips, it didn't. Returned it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by yorkiemama1 Love this top!
I bought the cotton/modal 3/4 sleeve boat neck top in the solid navy and black colors and loved them. Then, when the teal stripe and yellow/orange stripe came out, I had to buy them also! I wear these tops with slim khakis to work, sometimes with a scarf and sometimes not, and always receive compliments. Simple yet elegant. Wash on gentle cycle, cold water, toss in a low temp dryer until damp-dry, and hang. Perfect results every time, no ironing necessary. No shrinking either.
I am 55, 5' 5", 32D bra, and 115 pounds - small fits perfectly.
Would LOVE to see these tops in additional colors, particularly solids!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ilovecotton I love this shirt
I bought the green and white striped size Medium.....and only did so
after reading one reviewer who said to size up, that she thought this
ran small. I'm 5'2, 135 pounds and I generally would buy a petite
medium or a small regular. I went ahead and decided to size up and
don't think this shirt runs small at all. It fits perfectly in the length
and it might be a bit fitted in the sleeves, so if a woman had heavy
arms, this is going to be tight. I don't have heavy arms and I like that it's a snug fit. The boat neck is a bit wide but I haven't washed
it yet so I'm sure it will shrink just enough to look even better. I
love the color. Not sure about the multi stripe....doesn't appeal to
me as much. I think what makes this shirt special is the color and the fabric is excellent. I just wish LLBean would use printed
labels for in back of the neck because every label they sew in
irritates me. I have to neatly use a seam ripper to pull out each
thread to remove the label.
I'm very happy with this purchase and feel this shirt is especially
flattering! Good job....Wish it came in more colors with solid

Rated 5 out of 5 by kobedoo Great quality!
I was very pleased with this shirt. The quality is fantastic and the styling is modern. Th fabric is not thin, like some llbean items. I have worn the shirt to work every week since I got it about a month ago.
