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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by humboldtgirl Flattering & slimming top
I wore this top yesterday evening when we went out, and my husband actually said he "liked my top", which is something different! As far as the front opening, just discreetly pin the V-neck inside to keep it from opening too much. I like the gathered waistline and length, which are both flattering and slimming. Lovely top that also looks good with a scarf worn loosely at the neck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by filumena2 ps review....Supima V Necks
Forgot to mention the Atlantic Blue is quite darker than pictured on line.....just to let you know...not what you would expect.. For most of the colors you get online the colors are true & some are not...Don't know why that is?....but it's still another great garment from llbean!

Rated 5 out of 5 by filumena2 Supima V-Neck Tee Review for 2014.............
Back to review for a second time...This years colors are 6 all new, bright & different choices.....
Just love this style..For me this is possibly the best fitting top I own.Some reviews from last year had trouble with the top opening a little too much...A simple solution .. just wear a lacy cami underneath, so if the top does open too much you will only be showing the lacy cami and not your bra...Love this years colors, but the Aqua Sea is a little too pale for me. Not as pictured online...Ledge is a great taupe mushroom color. Love it!...The Light Apricot is a wonderful shade of apricot/dusty rose/ light coral color that matches & pairs with the new cotton/cashmere V neck sweater in Dusk Pink... A great outfit with pants or skirt.....And another great garment from llbean!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Pamela09 Stylish comfort
I love everything about this long sleeve shirt - comfortable, washes well, stylish, good for winter - except it is a bit too low cut in the front. I'm not really well endowed but I think a women who is would not have a problem filling out the top. I'm not big enough and so therefore, it falls a bit revealing more than I'd like (and I don't mind showing a bit of my top but this is too much). I simply wear a thin camisole underneath and it works beautifully.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jannyshopper Supima/Modal V-Neck Tee is great, except...
This is a great shirt - quality, texture, color (loved the navy!). HOWEVER, I wore it alone and had to constantly close the V neck with my hands. The neckline was way too deep and revealing, especially when the fabric stretched a bit. Cannot be worn without a cami!! LLBean ran out of this shirt very early. I could not get the petite small in teal, online or in stores, and the season had just started! :( Hope they re-release this with a slight modification in neckline. It would be a great wear-alone top!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by seaside2 Neckline too revealing
Like the concept and fabric but no matter what I tried, I could not keep the neckline from limply hanging too open and revealing. Had to return.
