Rated 4 out of 5 by Kinda soft hand, well constructed
i am a 5'1" 97# woman. i ordered the XS nightshirt in cream w/blue polka dots.
fabric is exceptional. overall construction exemplary. the garment is
plenty long/knee length: i would almost classify it as a short gown.
upon 1st wash several buttons fell off, which i reattached.
my main complaint would be that the facing "flaps" as you walk, catching at the knee and making walking awkward. i stitched the facing on both sides to the garment (eliminating the chest pocket) and the problem is solved.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Busyoldlady Perfect coverup
I'm always cold after we turn the thermostat down for the night. Now I can read or watch TV with looking for something to wrap my self up in. I usually wear a Small but purchased a Med and found it very roomy. Perfect weight, good quality and very soft. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by citrucal Comfortable sleep inducing nightshirt
I ordered two of these shirts for a Christmas present . They are so great, I would have ordered two more if they had had them in pink and green or any other colors. I bought the two they had available.
The fit is great and the fabric so comfortable.
I have always been more than satisfied with the quality of L.L. Bean products. I look at this web site first when I am loking for something they may have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Memphisdawn Great nightshirt
I ordered a blue one for myself. I like it so much that I have ordered a cream one. I think I might like it without a collar though. Like that it buttons and it is warm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JustGold Love at first try on
I bought this nightshirt for my sister in a size Large. I tried it on when it arrived to ensure that I bought the correct size for her. While I think it would have fit her, I just couldn't part with it. It is super soft and very comfortable. The weight of the material is substantial, but not too heavy. Being middle aged I was afraid it would be too hot. That hasn't been the case, there is plenty of air that circulates around my neck and chest that allows me to be comfortable. I haven't worn a nightgown in years and was concerned about getting wrapped up in it as I turned in bed, but that hasn't happened. I am quite pleased with it, and am glad I decided to purchase something else for my sister.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KatieDancer Comfortable and washes really well
I bought this for my mother because the front buttons make it easy to get on and off . It quickly became her favorite and I am back today to buy a few more. It is well made and the blue is a really great color. I bought it a few months ago and have been washing it a couple of times a week (see, a real favorite). Except for having to resew a button, it still looks new and hasn't shrunk. It is nicely made. My mom says it is very comfortable and it is nice and soft. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BusyIsBetter Soft and warm. Be sure to order up a size!
I stay cozy warm in this soft flannel nightshirt! I read the comments about the shirt running small in the chest area and I ordered a size Large instead of my usual Medium. I'm glad I did. The shirt fits perfectly up top (I'm a 36DD) and flares out as a Large on me would, but I really don't mind. It's comfortable and makes me happy. I wish there were more prints left to choose from, I'd buy another!

Rated 1 out of 5 by jean99 Does Not Feel Like Flannel
The first thing I noticed was the material surface has a sleazy feel, a little like Velveteen. Not the true softness of flannel. Kind of like heavily processed cheap material - I felt like there was a synthetic in the mix.
After a washing, the coarse surface feel persists.
I'm reading other reviews raving about the softness, and thinking, maybe they don't remember the wonderful softness of the old Bean flannel pajamas.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MamaGoldielocks Very warm!
I ordered this in a petite medium as I was concerned it was going to be snug through the chest if I ordered my usual small. It fits great and is very soft, even after only 2 washings. Very warm fabric...may be too warm to sleep comfortably unless it's a very cold winter's night!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Artlovre Makes a great coverup
I purchased this night shirt to wear as a robe over pajamas and it is perfect.
The fabric is soft and the fit is just right.
It makes a very nice button down style robe.
