Rated 5 out of 5áby plantagenet Almost Perfect Nightgown
This is the almost perfect nightgown - I love the fabric, which is silky and a perfect weight; I love the 3/4 length sleeves and the mid-calf length. I also like the pattern, an understated floral. The only drawback is the unflattering droopy-looking V-neck, which would have looked SO MUCH better rounded. Despite the unfortunate V-neck, I plan to order several more because I love the way it feels to sleep in! LLBean, can you bring it back like it is but with a better neckline?

Rated 5 out of 5áby SusannaD Comfy nightgown
I have bought many of these wonderful nightgowns in the past and just bought two more. The fabric is very soft and comfy and launders really well. The colors and prints are always very pretty.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Lovinglife1 Very soft and comfortable, feels like a big hug
Just got one of these and the gown was so comfortable. It didn't ride up and get all twisted. Very soft cotton. Great length. My husband even likes it. No, it's not sexy, but it looks and feels good on. Haven't washed it yet, so I can't comment on that. I did order a second one, as I know the first will be worn often.

Rated 5 out of 5áby queenmom1 Short sleeve, please!
I LOVE this gown. I have 4 and in the south I can wear them most of the year. The more you wash them the softer and silkier they get. The problem is in the summer. I need the long length in a short sleeve version. Please plan on making short sleeve for the summer season next year! I will buy 4 more in the short sleeve!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5áby tammyK comfortable, silky supima nightgown
I just received the longer sleeve nightgown in plum rose today and immediately washed it. All my other pima nightgowns are knee length with short sleeves but I wanted one gown with more coverage.The Supima fabric is silky and washes and dries in the dryer with no wrinkles. I also love the pima cotton tees which launder and dry well with no extra care. This fabric is a pleasure to wear,looks beautiful on. Love all the colors.

Rated 3 out of 5áby UpstateShopper nice but not the same
A year or so ago I purchased one of these in a different patterned fabric, light blue with tiny flowers. The softest, most comfy nightgown ever. So I wanted another and the same fabric was not available but this one was. This is soft, but not as soft as the first one and also heavier and stiffer. I had hoped this one would get softer with time but that has not happened. The first one was definitely worth the price but this second one, not so much.

Rated 4 out of 5áby corpwife Perfect Nightgown for 3/4 of the year
These are so soft. I have very sensitive skin and the material on these is Perfect. When I had hot flashes, the V-neck gave enough "breathing" room at the crucial neck and throat area.
The 3/4 sleeves do not bind like a previous LLBean version of this nightgown. And Bean got rid of the silly useless tie. Yay!
Now for the negatives. For winter, I would like an ankle length, or at least low calf, (I am 5' 7 1/2"). I would like long sleeves.
I would like more color choices that grown women would wear, (no baby pink) and prints that do not make me look like I am 110 years old.
Oh and I want all these choices available in a 2X.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Happy25y Even prettier than the picture!
I purchased this gown in a rose print last year and just had to come back for another one. I'm happy that I took the advice of other reviewers and sized up from my usual medium to a large. For reference, I am 5'4" and weigh 135. The gown is soft and comfortable for sleeping and lounging around the house. Love the 3/4 sleeves and mid-calf length. What else is there to say?

Rated 2 out of 5áby AdirabkeK9 Too short and not as expected
I intended to get another identical copy of a mid-calf length plain blue (not a print) L L Bean nightgown that I bought recently and love. I wanted to get a second one before they were no longer available, and I thought this was it, supposedly the same size and color.
But: the new one is smaller and tighter (not pretty when on and not so comfortable in or out of bed), and the blue is lighter and, well, not such a nice shade at all. It's going back.

Rated 2 out of 5áby IndianaFan Hem unraveling in less than three months
I only ordered this nightgown on January 17, and I do not wear it every week. The thread in the hem has already broken and the hem is unraveling. This nightgown is not up to LL Bean standards!
