Rated 5 out of 5 by SartorialGirl Fabulous top - but more of a classic wrap
This is a gorgeous top - it is more of a classic wrap top than a tee.. in the pic you can just make out the gathering on the sides and on me it did have that gathered look. I love wrap tops, they're very flattering so full disclosure - I go between M and L sizes and did order M so I'd be certain of a fitted wrap look. I love it, LLBean should do more styles like this. I wear a tank/cami underneath it, it looks great is very comfortable and washed well. I did line dry it because I've been having some issues with LLBean and shrinkage lately (unfortunately) so didn't want to take a chance.
Am ordering several more - colors are terrific

I just received by order for these tops. Tried them on and they are awesome to say the least. I find the LL Bean tops run a bit big on me so I down size from my usual medium. Purchased smalls and the fit cannot be any better. Do not hesitate to purchase these tops you will not be sorry.

Stunning design, looks good for dress up and casual. Has become my favorite shirt for everything. Fits perfect and the fabric is so heavenly. Now have one in every color!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Linlake Love it!
This top is well made, silky soft with a very nice fluid drape. In fact, I loved it so much, I bought it in 4 colors. The V neck is fairly steep, but not low enough to show cleavage (at least not for me). I can see how some of the other reviewers might have found the neckline to be too loose for them - as it much depends on the size of your chest.
I weigh 185lbs, am 5'6" and wear a size 42DD bra and the XL fits me perfectly. It is very flattering - especially the way it gathers around the mid section. I have worn it casually and also to work with a blazer and it is very comfortable under my jacket.
I highly recommend this product and hope they continue to make them. I haven't washed it yet - and am a little worried, but will wash in cold and hang dry.

Rated 3 out of 5 by JATShopper Nice tee but fit is off
I loved the fabric and style of this shirt but it just was way too large for me and with the low neckline it just didn't work. I bought my usual size Med. but it was so big in the body and also really long. Loved the apricot color but unfortunately it will be going back because of the fit. :(

Rated 3 out of 5 by iamcrystal Runs large in the bust and the fabric is clingy
I have to send back because it just didn't fit right. I'm glad L.L. Bean makes returns easy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lynne97 Perfect but not for the very modest?
This is a wonderful shirt in every way---my only complaint is that the large is a bit large and the medium is, well, a bit sexy. But who cares? I stuck with the medium just will not wear it to church!! I got it in white and the yummy coral and aqua colors. Fabric is luxurious.
Also, no complaints about the plunging v-neck because that gave me an excuse to buy two cami-bras, one plain (for regular wear) and one lacy (for dressy occasions.) Have received many, many compliments on this tunic, which unlike other LLBean tees is not too short. I hang it up wet to keep it long and that works beautifully, no wrinkles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jonedw Sizing comments
I ordered Petite Medium & Regular Medium b/c of other reviews re: gaping. 5'6" 150# 36B (39" around bust). The sleeves were a bit short on the Petite & it was a bit narrower. Not significantly shorter.
I preferred the regular. My interpretation of the fit: if you are "low set" (even w/ a bra on) or busty, you should be fine (and a wee bit of tacking would solve the gape). Lilac is lovely. Slightly thicker modal than I've seen elsewhere.

Rated 5 out of 5 by waborita62 Very nice top
I recently purchased ths top in lilac and I really like it, wore it today. The color is very nice for spring. I was hoping the V-neck and crossover effect would be slimming and it is. The V is not sewn in place but I never felt like it would reveal too much. The fabric is light but not flimsy with plenty of stretch to help it keep it's shape. Washed fine, a little wrinkled but I threw it back in the dryer with a damp towel for a few minutes and it looked good. I will probably buy it again in another color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by nhampshire2nhaven order in petite and it won't flop open
I've been burned by surplice tops like this before...very frustrating b/c you're constantly pulling and readjusting it. This time I ordered it in petite, and it solved the problem for me. I don't normally wear petite (I'm 5'6") but making the shirt shorter worked. It's still plenty long. Also, it's incredibly soft. I'm ordering two more!
