Rated 4 out of 5 by Vivi2 So Cute and Wonderful Fabric
Too bad the first one I ordered accidentally got into the dryer on high heat with towels. I liked it so well I wore it even though it had shrunk. Then I decided to order another one. I would love to see this with a little more room so if that happens again it wouldn't be too tight. Also, would love to see this in a lot more colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by me15 Nice fitting shirt for work and play
This fabric and cut is really nice because it is stretchy but not clingy, and wash-and-wear. It is also quite breathable and I stay cool in it. The fit is flattering along the sides for a little bit of muffin-top, might not work for more than a little. The cross-over v-neck is just right: not too low to wear to work and not too high to feel like its choking. The sleeves are fitted and therefore don't take up much space under sweater sleeves, which is also nice. After reading other reviews, I did size up from S to M and it did shrink every so slightly after a wash and dry. For reference, I am 5'4", 155 lbs., athletic build, and have size 8 pants and 36B chest. I'm wearing the Medium regular right now after washing and drying and it is perfect on me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TraceyCanada Very Comfortable; Great Fit
Dress it up for work - Dress it down for the weekend. I have a couple of accessories made out of turquoise gemstones that are a perfect complement to this colour.
I read the reviews that say this shirt 'runs small'. It is clingy and stretchy but I ordered based on my measurements (chest 44" = XL) and it fits perfectly. Washed and dried very well...no shrinkage to speak of and the colour is still vivid.
The Blue Pine is lovely but I wish it came in more colours! I'm tempted to buy the black version too but I have way too much black in my closet already. *sigh*

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.
