Rated 5 out of 5 by Moved2Samm Runs small, very stylish and comfortable
I ordered two sizes since the sizing charts are very general, unreliable and vary greatly by manufacturer. I ended up keeping the larger size and it fits great. The shirt has a slight stretch which makes it lie well across my arms and stomach. It's not too low and the empire waist makes it office appropriate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by duchess1128 I love this shirt!
I bought the black and raspberry in regular medium. It hugs in all the right places to be flattering and conceals the other places. I just bought another black, raspberry was sold out in my size. I would love more colors!!
Washes and dries well. No pilling or fading. Worth the price. Great for packing and traveling, no iron needed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by sylvics Don't buy!
I bought this since it's designed along the lines of the Summer Knit Dress, which is very flattering on me. Don't be fooled though! Apart from the sizing which runs very tight, it's not anywhere near as flattering in the way it fits. The only nice factor is the raspberry color, which is a beautiful rich shade.
Will be promptly returning it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by rappunzell Runs Small - Very Clingy
The skirted portion of this shirt is very narrow and the fabric is very clingy. Personally, I hate the feel of the fabric as well as the fit. I wear a 16/Large but the XL of this top looks small on me.

I love this shirt. After my first wash, I wore my shirt again and love it! I just ordered another shirt with different color and I am looking forward to wearing this comfortable and fit-perfect shirt more!

Rated 2 out of 5 by FarmGirlAtHeart RUNS SMALL, TIGHT, SUPER FITTED!
I wanted this top as I love the color and style. But it was sold out. I kept checking daily, and behold....a few in my size Small were in stock.
So I quickly ordered it. Now I can see why it was in stock....RETURNS! Every other top I order from L.L.Bean, I buy in a Small Petite, if Petite is offered. And they fit perfectly. Not this. I wasn't able to get the petite but because I wanted the top, I took the Small Regular and figured I could shorten the sleeves or bottom, if needed. Didn't get that far. It was even snug trying to get it over my shoulders when putting it on. So fitted and tight! This is either an XXS size or an XS size. Certainly not a size Small at all! I returned it.

I loved the fit of this when it first arrived, but now I wish I had returned it. After one wash and dry on medium it shrank a lot and is no longer slightly fitted, it's tight now. The style was so flattering before it shrank, and the color (raspberry) is beautiful, so I'm very disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Unschooler Way under sized!
I ordered an extra large and it was more like a medium. The fabric is very thick also. I will need to send it back. Hope Bean is not going with the new trend that an XL is a 12!

Rated 5 out of 5 by mozart1 Great-looking and Comfortable
Great material for this type of shirt. It has a little bit of stretch, so it fits in the bust without flopping open. The rest of the shirt drapes well with no clinging. I wish I had bought the raspberry before it sold out.

Rated 3 out of 5 by midwesttad suplice top
I was so disappointed by this top! The fabric is amazingly soft, and such a beautiful color (raspberry) and the fit was amazing. The problem? The entire time I'm wearing it, I was so itchy. I just couldn't figure it out. Then when I was taking it off, I realized the seams that go around the waist have an overstitching that is something like a stretchy plastic stuff. It is quite rough and scratchy (the source of my itchiness while wearing it). I am reluctantly returning this, because even though I washed it wth fabric softener, it still itches me like crazy. Beware if you have sensitive skin.
