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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by travellllller Had to buy a larger size than normal
I normally buy LL BEAN size large or XL (depending on the cut of the item) - but they didn't have my size in stock and I really wanted this gown so I took a chance and bought a 1X. It fit perfectly. I couldn't believe it. I was worried that open area on the chest would go too low - but it is just fine. I like the 3/4 length sleeves because I wash my hands a lot and I don't have to worry about the material getting wet. I like the length- it is long enough to give some warmth- but not so long that I will get overheated. The gown does have a chemical smell when it comes out of the package- but it goes away in one wash. The gown is soft and a bit silky- so some might find it to be made of material that is a bit cool for the winter- but I like being covered and not overheating- and this material works great for me. It is a thick material so you cannot see through it. I have washed my gown at least 20 times so far and it looks exactly the same as when it came out of the package. I have already bought another one in the 1X size- and it has been washed a lot already and is holding up great also. I don't believe my regular ll bean size would work for me in this gown- but the larger size suits me great. I love this gown. I would recommend it and would definitely gift it to others.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Ziggy10 Supima Cotton Nightgown
I have several of your supima cotton nightgowns that I have bought over the years. I love the feel of the fabric, 3/4 sleeves and below knee length all perfect for sleeping. I would love to replace them but the current items as SO DUMPY looking when they arrive that I have had to return them. Please restyle and bring back your old items!

Rated 5 out of 5 by peacetress favorite nighty ever
I bought this nightgown about 3 years ago and wear it year round. It's so soft, smooth and comfortable. Supima cotton makes all the difference. It washes well and retains its size. The texture is almost silky, yet it's cotton and breaths so well. I'd get another one, but not until this one needs replacing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by mattmom Chemical (?) smell
I had already overlooked the unexciting gathering at the V-neck and the overly bright shade of blue when I ordered this item because it is a good midweight nightgown to wear on fall or spring nights, or for traveling. But the unpleasant chemical smell of the nightgown when I opened the newly delivered package this morning was very unappealing. Possibly if I wash it the smell would go away but it isn't worth it. I will just send it back. I think I've had this experience with one or two other items over the years--do not know if it is a factory issue or a dye issue but it is not a good sales tool. I had ordered three nightgowns; only one did not smell. I am about to write a short review of the other one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MomToTallBoys Just what I have been searching for!
I really wanted 3/4 sleeves for sleeping because my arms always get cold and I didn't want full length or short so this one was perfect! The fabric is really soft and a nice weight, not too thin. I have had no problem with shrinking. It does need to be washed before wearing. The only negative? - I wanted more and they are sold out in my size!
