by LilyGGirl Love...but they've changed
I absolutely *love* these shirts and manage to buy more every spring/summer. The longer sleeve offers a bit more coverage for my upper arms. The material is gorgeous and higher quality than a basic t-shirt so they're easy to dress up. I wear business casual to work and often pair one of these with a skirt or pants - add on a necklace or scarf and you're good to go.
One big, disappointing exception: they've gotten shorter. I took a picture of last year's green shirt with this year's red on top and there's a significant length difference. I don't know why L.L. Bean messes with a good thing. The length used to be just right - not too long, not too short. This season, however, they border on a bit too short. It falls in an odd spot somewhat between hip and waist level. I'm large chested so I'm sure that has something to do with the fit but...still...bring back the regular length.

Rated 4 out of 5 by yestoshop Great BUT
I bought this shirt in black, white, yellow, peach and pink. I LOVE the sleeve length and fabric but wish it were a little longer. All my friends (in our 50s and 60s) buy this for the upper arm coverage but would love to have a little more length. The boatneck version provides both the sleeve length and the overall length but the fabric is not the same.

I bought this beautiful red scoopneck jersey in a Small based on other reviews, but when it arrived found that it was much too big. It measures just under 40" under the arm, so I will be returning it for an XS. I usually take a Small in LLBean clothing.

Nicest tee I've ever had. Nicest material. Neckline, sleeves and drape are very flattering. Get all your favorite colors.

Just adding a review to give my experience with this top. First off, I now have 3 of these tops because I found them comfortable, nice colors and a suitable fit.
But.... buyer beware... I am enclosing a photo (not very clear I admit) but it shows how much shrinkage there is in this top. The red is brand new.. The green has been laundered according to label (cold wash, tumble dry low). For me it works as I am 5'2 and the changes in length and width are "almost a good thing". But with so many of LLBean's items today.... buyer beware.

Rated 5 out of 5 by alaskakid Finally! The fit I've been looking for!
So glad I tried this top. I came back for more two times. It's tricky to find a soft, pretty t-shirt fabric that's cut for a woman who isn't a teenager anymore. I have trouble w/ tshirts fitting well and this one does the trick! I'm 46' size 10 pretty standardly, and wear a 32F in Euro sizing bras. (Yes, there is such a size;) ) So that's why I appreciate this fit. It's cut to fit and flatter!
Only thing I was looking for in this top would be a grey one. When LL Bean makes it in grey, I'll pick that one up too! Thank you!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by lnorth Great shirt, miss the great colors
I love this style t-shirt. It can easily go to the office with a jacket and a skirt or to somewhere casual with a pair of ankle pants. Elbow length sleeves are great if your biceps need a little work, but are not frumpy. There use to be two great colors that I miss a lot - cobalt and china blue - flattering color for many women, I would think. If LL Bean decides to bring them back, please let me know immediately, I will place a pre-order. If not those colors, a few more good blues would be great. FYI - Brightwater blue is a little too neon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BoCla The best tee ever!
I so appreciate the elbow-length of the sleeves for 2 reasons: I am older and my upper arms are no longer attractive; I also wear a compression sleeve and really like that the elbow length sleeves of the tee cover the top of it with no problem. I also like that it comes in so many colors and that it is made of supima cotton. I only buy supima cotton these days since it is so soft and lasts and lasts without fading or pilling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Retiredteacher96 Wonderful shirt!
This shirt is perfect for what I need. The elbow length sleeves are perfect for my 60 something arms. The shirt length is perfect for my 5'4" body. I will be ordering more colors.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Shal2 Black tee
This tee was not sized the same as the other colors of this style tee. The white tee fit great in medium, however the black was very large. I find this very discouraging since it costs for return postage on orders. This is the second time this has happened to me with LL Bean products.
