Rated 2 out of 5 by LilyRose47155 Length Too Short after Drying
After reading the reviews --- I cannot understand Why L.L. Bean continues to make a comfortable, well made Henley --- with the length too short!! This is the same problem many of us talk about in our reviews is the length. After we wash the Henley, we cannot put it into the dryer or the length shrinks & then comes out of our pants. I would Love if you redesigned this Henley with a LONGER length & also made it a bit fitted. I am going to order one because I do Love the Quality & Fabric --- please consider a redesign & sell under: For Tall Women the longer length. Thank you!!

I wish I had read the reviews before purchasing this shirt. Three of the top five helpful reviews complain about vertical shrinkage in the shirt. It is true... after just one washing the shirt doesn't even go to my belt loops. Disappointed. My first failed purchase from llb...

Rated 1 out of 5 by hawkip poor quality
I ordered this shirt on line and waited several weeks to get it, the quality is substandard, the material is thin and does not wash well at all. Looses shape and looks like a pajama top. Very cheap looking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PuppyChow My fourth waffle-knit henley
I just received the sunlit coral today, beautiful color. This is my fourth henley. Really like the ribbed cuffs, they are so comfortable and very nice for layering. However, I only wished the torso length were a little longer. I wash them in cold water and only line dry them; even just a little shrinkage will make the shirts too short for me. Luckily that hasn't happened yet.

Rated 1 out of 5 by zzLynn Barely covers my waist after a few washings
This shirt really fell short. I originally ordered it in two sizes. The one that fit had a placket that slanted diagonally across the shirt. I thought "Ooops, a defective one slipped through" and returned it. I exchanged it for another and added an order for one in another color. The two shirts came and once again one had a placket that was not properly centered. I kept the one that was made correctly and loved the color and the fit. Then I wore and washed it a few times. It barely covers the waist of my high waisted pants and I'm only 5'3". I'm sad to have to return this item.

Rated 4 out of 5 by vinnie452 Love this Henley BUT
I have 3 of these and love them BUT I put my grey one in the wash and then forgot it was in the load and threw into the dryer and it came out about 2 inches shorter than when it went in. I am so mad at myself for that mistake and it cost me dearly. I love these shirts they are so soft, and nice colours But why oh why it I put it in the dryer grrrrr. So I am taking a star off for shrinkage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by truckeelady absolutely love this
Well, after the first buy, I went back and bought 2 more, and now I'm thinking that might not be enough. I've gradually learned through the years to buy LOTS when I find something I really love, so I will be buying more. Maybe some for Xmas gifts..
They are soft, just the right weight, not too thin or heavy. Comfortable on the body, alone or under top. The colors are wonderful. Washes and dries just great. I can wear regular, petite, and since I'm not fussy about fit even a small women's, so I can take advantage of sales.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KLMom Love them!
Love these henleys. They fit well, and are warm. They wash up great. I haven't had any problems with shrinkage, but I do hang most stuff to dry. Loved them so much I bought more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Springlover2 warm and practical
Got the raspberry color, it is very pretty to wear when the trees are losing their colors. I ordered a size up, to layer above LLBean inter-lock cotton shirt. These two layers keep me warm in a 70 degree house. The shirt does not shrink or lose shape after being washed three times. I use cold water and line dry. The material is soft. Some people may find it boxy, but wearing it in the house I need something really practical and down to earth. The shirt does all the jobs I requires it. I am happy with my purchase

Rated 1 out of 5 by LLBeaninCalifornia Too Short
I love the waffle knit shirts and use to buy them through LL Bean for years. The last few years I keep trying but I have to return every one of them. The problem is shrinkage??.they shrink up to the point where they do not even cover your belt loops. This year I ordered one to try, didn't have to wash it for it to be too short. Does anyone check the quality of merchandise anymore? The shirt out of the bag is so short it barely reaches the top of my levis. Returning again.So disappointed because this has become the norm for tee's as well.
