Rated 3 out of 5 by glyc Great Quality but runs small
I have bought these henleys before and been happy with quality. Long wearing, sizing and choice of colors. However this time the XL runs small. I won't return the one I ordered but I would advise going up a size.

I just love this soft, cozy Henley and agree with others who find it the same way. It does have the touch of spandex but is not a body hugger, which is not what I wanted. I have 3 and going for my 4th. I come home from work and put this on and love the comfort and casual feel. All 3 have washed and dried perfectly with no shrinking and no ironing needed! That too makes it a great top for me. All depends on what one is looking for and after I got my first I was hooked. Thank you L.L. Bean for one of the most valued pieces of my casual wardrobe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CallMePicky Beautiful Henley Shirt
I give the waffle henley shirt 5 stars! I now have it in seven different colors! I ordered the size M. I'm 5'6 and 105 lbs and it fits perfectly. The cut is very feminine, not too tight or too loose, and it launders beautifully using cold wash, in the dryer for 20 minutes, and then hang to dry. I have not experienced any shrinkage. These are perfect for the colder winter climate here in Oregon. I would definitely recommend these waffle henley shirts to someone looking for a warm, comfortable shirt with feminine styling.

Rated 1 out of 5 by parkgirl A tad too short
I'm 5'10" and usually require a 2x in tops. This shirt was a tad too short in the sleeves and was just too short overall. I'm going to try and order a men's top, however the colors won't be as fun!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Howmuchspandex How much spandex?
A "touch of spandex"??? It use to be 60/40. 60% cotton and 40% spandex. I am a very slim person that takes extremely good care of my L L Bean purchases, which I have bought for several years. I have noticed the decline in good material ingredients and therefore do not buy things that are described as a "touch of spandex". They do NOT hold up to gentle wear and care. You have to replace them every year because they fade and lose their shape, (even with cold water wash, gentle detergent and hanging them to dry - NO dryer). So why is it that companies are going to 100% cotton or close to that? Because - it is cheaper for the company. I am sick of spending hard earned money on something that looks like junk after one or two gentle washings!
BEWARE, they should be 60/40 and you will be able to wear it for a long time. So disappointed in the quality of merchandise these days!

During last 3 years, I have purchased almost every color this henley comes in! This is my favorite shirt of all time! I must admit, I do not put my shirts in the dryer. My experience with just about any knit shirt is that they will shrink in the dryer. I use softener and cold water in the wash and once they are done I put them on a drying rack. My daughter also wears these shirts and washes them the same way I do and has had no problem with them.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Ughhhh Short!
This is the second style of shirt I have ordered from Bean that has a rather short cut that became 'unwearably' short ofter just one wash (cool water, low temp dry). Otherwise, it was of better quality than most of the junk you will find in your random box store or low-end department store. I just wish Bean would offer a longer cut without a boxy shape. I am returning this item along with two others, and potentially more, depending on how they come out of the wash.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DonnaZH Most Comfortable Shirt ever!
This is the most comfortable shirt ever! I bought it in a large, and it was slightly big, but after washing it shrunk a little, making it fit perfectly. I'm buying more for sure!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Kodiegirl Nice shirt but......
I bought this shirt in the burnt sienna and the color is great and the style is very nice.....but the shirt is shapeless. It says it has a 'touch of spandex' to hold its shape. It needs more than a 'touch'. The shirt fit great for about an hour ~ literally. It quickly stretched out and lost its shape and now looks baggy and sloppy. It certainly doesn't look like it does on the model. And the sleeves are too long. I am 5'4" and have to roll up the sleeves. I understand LL's penchant for all cotton products but in order to retain shape there should be a good blend which would allow for shape retention and no shrinkage. I wish LL would move more towards blended materials rather than all cotton. If not for a coupon which reduced the price I would never pay regular price for this. To be quite honest this shirt is not any better in quality than one you could find in any of the chain retail stores. This would be a perfect shirt if it had more spandex in it.

Very nice shirt. Good quality, very soft and comfortable. Not too "fitted" as some tee shirts.
