Rated 5 out of 5 by AuntieMJ Ballerina top, so lovely
Everything about this top is a dream. The material is buttery, silky & ever so soft against the skin. Very flattering fit and unbelievably feminine with classic styling that doesn't go out of style. I feel like a ballerina wearing these tops probably because of the scoop neck & 3/4 length sleeves. I own three & just ordered another one. The material is stretchy so it is very forgiving to wear. That being said, I recommend ordering down a size from your normal size (but I prefer form-fitting in a top such as this, however that's a personal preference). I normally wear a medium in LL Bean tops and purchased size small which gives me a form-fitting look (5'6", 150lbs, 38.5", 33", 38.5"). On me the tops fall about 7" below my normal waistline (it can be scrunched up too depending on bottoms that you're wearing). I don't wear a bra with this top as I don't have one that doesn't show on the shoulder plus I prefer the smooth look without undergarment lines.
The mariner blue is a lovely color. I also have it in black (favorite color in tops), molten red & just ordered the harbor blue. All in a a basic wardrobe staple for me. Thank you LL Bean for beautiful, well made clothing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by AGlynn Great everything shirt...
Bummed I waited so long to try this. I got the black in small and love it. Comfortable w just a little sheen (I can't stand most work shirts, I really like casual, natural fabrics) but I feel comfortable and sharp and the classic fit will go w Blazers, cardigans or be fine solo. It is a little fitted which makes me self conscious as I have had kids so will never be as skinny as I once was! That said, I still feel like I look good. 5'6" and 140lbs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by tennislvr Shapely fitted tee
Love this top. I purchased it in size small, harbor blue. I'm 5'7" & weigh 130 lbs. it's long enough in the torso & fits close to body but not enough to show any excess inches at the waste or bra strap in back. The fabric is stretchy with a thicker look than a regular nylon stretch top. Nice fit & quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JMR24 My go-to tee
This shirt is the best to dress up or dress down. It's incredibly soft, stretchy, and drapes wonderfully. I love wearing it because I can count on it looking good even after washing it over and over.

A sweet shirt made of super soft material. The dark charcoal colour is rich. A great staple shirt to have in one's closet!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Holacat stretchy and very very long
I ordered two of these tops. They are very stretch and long. The shirt does not fall at hips like the description. It is a long tubular tunic. Both are going back which is very expensive here in Canada. What a disappointment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by edumom12 Nicely shaped top, watch the sizing
I have copied my previous review of the first top I ordered, which I will now add to.
"I have been looking for a well fitting scoop-neck, tunic length T shirt for some time. I have tried a few but often find that the scoop is cut too close to the shoulders, which means constantly adjusting bra straps. This shirt has it all: not too sheer with the right amount of cling and stretch, perfect neckline, long enough in the body and sleeves. The ribbing gives it a bit more shape. I'm 5'9", 160 lbs, 36D and I ordered the large because that's where my measurements fit into the sizing chart in Signature. The medium (my usual LLBean size for tops) would have fit better."
Yes, I just received the second top in medium and it fits better. There is so much stretch in this top that the medium size is more than adequate. Consider ordering down a size if you like your tops to be form fitting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Snowfall Flattering, comfortable scoop neck
this is the shirt I've been searching for to wear beneath cardigans. it is very comfortable: close but not clingy. the 3/4 sleeve is flattering and versatile. i read the other reviews and chose a smaller size than the size charts indicated. it worked perfectly. i'm 5'5", 130 lbs, size small is just right.

Should have followed my instincts! I'll keep it anyway but will go for medium if I order more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by n9537q Smooth soft fabric
I wasn't sure about paying a premium for an LL Bean Signature product, let alone a simple t-shirt, but this was worth the price. It is so soft and smooth I had to check the label again to make sure what it is made of! Not silk, but it almost feels that good. It fits great, hugs one's figure for a modern, younger slim fit. I am 5'7", have about a 33 inch bust, 28 inch waist, and fairly broad shoulders. The length is good too- not too short and won't come un-tucked. Recommended.
