Rated 5 out of 5 by WeeAnnie Quality Flyaway Cardigan
I bought this pin stripe style as well as four or five solid colors. I'm 5'1" and 140 lbs. (after just dropping 15 lbs) and I bought a Petite M. I wanted to treat myself to something special, but still be able to wear it after losing another 20 lbs. This "cardigan" is perfect! My husband insists on having a "fashion show" and he loved the look and fit of each sweater as much as I did. His comment was that "they looked very expensive" and "you can wear those casual or for getting dressed up and going out". Each fit perfectly. The fabric was smooth and had no wrinkles coming out of the package. I immediately washed and dried all of the sweaters. They came out of the dryer wrinkle free and there was no shrinkage. Because there are no buttons, it will fit during drastic weight fluctuation. I am wearing these daily. The weight is perfect for year-round in the south (SC). I highly recommend this item. It will be another "keeper" from L L Bean!

Received this and loved the China Blue Colour. Wore with matching tank underneath. Comfortable and a great price!

Rated 3 out of 5 by MomInTheWoods NOT A SWEATER
We made a mistake with this one: saw the word cardigan and thought it was a yarn sweater. Daughter didn't like it for that reason. Fit was true to size (she wears an 8, this was a medium). The teal color was pretty, though a little dull. We'll keep looking!

This sweater came poorly packed with tons of wrinkles that didn't come out with repeated ironing even after washing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Britsmom7 I just don't understand...
... why there are ANY negative comments about this cardigan. I purchased one late last summer and was so pleased with every aspect of it that over the course of a year-and-a-half I've bought one in every color except emerald - and that's only because I don't wear that color at all, and it doesn't go with any of those that I do wear. Now I have about ten of these cardis and I couldn't be any happier; in fact, today I'm ordering a second one in black just for every day. The fabric is dreamy: soft, smooth, comfortable and just the right weight. I find that it comes out of the dryer literally wrinkle-free, but if it does happen to wrinkle in the closet, placing it in the dryer with a slightly-dampened towel for about 15 minutes gets it done - and I do it only rarely. The colors are deep, vibrant and fade-proof. The fit of the Medium is perfect for me (5 ft tall and 98 lbs, with linebacker shoulders and gorilla arms), and (an aside) it also minimizes the very obvious curvature of my spine resulting from scoliosis diagnosed too late to do anything about. I'm not a clotheshorse, but I do try to find clothing that emphasizes my good points while coming close to disguising my bad ones. Another point is that the cardigan is so versatile that I can wear it with anything from jeans to a party dress; it goes equally well with denim and silk. Its weight is perfect too, over a tank, a long-sleeve blouse or a tee, and under a coat in cold weather it provides just enough extra insulation. I've never written a second review for an item, but I'm speaking out now because I don't want people scared away by what I think are non-issues: closet-wrinkling, bad proportions, etc. Every female body is different from every other, to be sure; but if I look good in this cardigan despite my Quasimodo back, I bet there aren't too many women who won't. If you're looking for a comfortable, versatile, all-year-around cardi in gorgeous colors, this is the one. And now that the price is reduced? Go for it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by SBJ3 Warm red is not red, it is brick orange
See above, color isn't red. Brick orange. Nice for some but not red. I have to pay to send this back. Good fit. Good quality, 4 stars.

bought it this summer last minute to take on a trip - and wound up wearing it every day. Perfect for both casual and dressy wear - very comfortable. Good fit for my size. Strongly recommend.

I love this cardigan. I got it in Petite and it fits perfect. I live in Georgia and it is just the right weight for our temperate weather. It washes and wears lovely.

I bought this to wear during my pregnancy. I live in the south and between the mild winters and my higher body temperature while pregnant, the weight of this material is perfect. I usually wear a LLBean XS, but purchased this in a S for a little more coverage over my growing belly and for a little more room to wear over a long sleeved shirt. The material is soft, light, and to be honest, it was really nice to order an item of clothing that I know is of good quality, as so many maternity clothes are cheaply made. This will surely be a favorite both during and after my pregnancy!

Rated 3 out of 5 by NHsweetheart HUGE!!!
pretty, lightweight cardigan (cardinal red is a true red and compliments darker hair), but the L, my usual size, looks like a tent on me! I give it a 3 rating only because the material is extremely light and borders on flimsy. I am reordering in a medium, though, for a light sweater you cant beat the prize with the daily markdown.
