Rated 5 out of 5 by midwestwoman Soft and comfortable
Fantastic nightgown - very silky soft fabric and with the calf length that I prefer. I'd suggest ordering up a size if you want it roomy. I normally wear a M in LLBean tops, but the large in this nightgown is perfect for me. 5'5" 138 lb I don't have big arms or shoulders. I wish the short sleeve gown also came in this length. I would buy two.

This is a wonderful nightgown, so soft and fits me perfectly. Comfortable to sleep in. I haven't laundered it yet but am not worried. I have never had such a soft nightgown. Wish it came in more patterns than just wisteria though (for the plus size).

Rated 4 out of 5 by KAMH Almost Perfect
I really love these nightgowns but the tag in the seam is awful. It was poking me, so I cut it out. That only made it worse, because both tags aren't soft fabric. One is a stiffer material that once trimmed felt like it was going to cut me. So at 10:30 at night I had to rip open the seam, remove the tags, and resew the seam. I hope you will go back to the good, old fashioned tags that use to simply softly fray when they were cut out.

Rated 2 out of 5 by beanwearerx30yrs Frumpy style,too long
The "hand" of the fabric is lovely as is the print (wisteria). I feel the style of the item could be greatly improved with either long or short sleeves instead of 3/4 length sleeves & knee length for better coverage. The best of course would be an offering of both long sleeves for winter or air conditioned spaces and short sleeves for summer or warmer climates. The key is a knee length and round neckline.

Rated 4 out of 5 by RAPIDFOXRACHEL Great spring & fall nightgown.
A Great spring & fall nightgown.
Wonderfully constructed of soft substantial Pima cotton.
Perfect below knee length for walking, bending & sitting. Not too long & not too short. You won't be holding it up or pulling it down. Has nice 2 inch side split at hem.
I did not want to spend this much money on a nightgown, but am glad I did. Worth every penny. My old cheap nighties are going in the trash.
Fit is not relaxed, runs true to size. I'm 5 feet & 100 pounds & the small fits perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GoodDreamsAgain SO comfortable!
I'm just now ordering my second one of these nightgowns.
Every feature is absolutely perfect - I can't find anything that could be more to my liking, except maybe the prints and colors offered.
Most important is that it's so comfortable that I never want a less comfy nightgown again! From the silky cotton and the spacious neckline to the sleeve length - everything has been carefully designed for a good night's sleep. Thank you L.L.Bean!

Rated 5 out of 5 by NN4CR Wonderful nightgown
Great for a good night's sleep. Very soft material, hard to believe it's all cotton, has a silky quality. Light and very smooth, easy to move in the sheets, easy to slip on and off, or slip a robe over.
True to size, loose but not voluminous, and does shrink slightly in the dryer. Only a bit, but if you're between sizes, maybe go up one if you want a looser gown. Arms are not as loose as they could be, probably due to a taper in the cut to a 3/4 sleeve.
The Wisteria floral print is in my opinion the only pretty one, the other colors and patterns being slightly too much or too little, too bright or too plain, or too weird. It seems to be almost an LLBean policy to come up with bizarre colors that seems slightly "off" and if they had some truly gorgeous prints I would buy more of these nighties.

Rated 5 out of 5 by beangirl55 The perfect gown
I am so excited to find these on sale! I have two but will certainly buy another. I am spoiled by this gown and now I just don't sleep as well in anything else. Cool enough for muggy southern nights in Georgia but also warm enough to watch the news and drink morning coffee in on cold winter mornings. I am sure I have washed the two I have probably 50 times and they still look brand new. The only difference is that the fabric has gotten softer and softer!

Rated 4 out of 5 by CarmenSandiego cut big and dumpy, but not bad for a nightgown
I'm slim & petite at 5'1", 112". The XS Regular was very roomy, in keeping with Bean's vanity sizing. The shoulder seam was good, which is the garment's only saving grace. Otherwise, this would look like my grandmother's nightgown!
Since this is neither outside clothes nor "sexy" nighttime wear, I forgive it its "dumpiness". It's soft and comfortable, which is all I need in a basic nightgown.
I might it to my tailor to take it in at the waist and put in chest darts. I haven't washed it yet, but I could use some heavy shrinking!
As usual, the cotton and construction are excellent Bean quality.
The clearance price is unbeatable.
