Rated 4 out of 5 Very comfortable and good for a casual workplace
I love this shirt. The cotton is thick enough for work and very soft. The shape is flattering to my size fourteen frame (short waist, a bit of a belly), good coverage on arms. Very comfortable. The length hits at the hips, below the abdomen (which is good for people with bellies in my opinion). Wish they had it in more colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by grumpkin Love it
I absolutely love this top. I normally wear a L and bought an XL after reading the reviews. I've washed it, allowed it to hang overnight, then a quick toss in the dryer the next morning.....no need to iron! The material is light yet not see through and so soft and comfortable. Looks great with jeans.

Rated 2 out of 5 by texashayseed Runs Very small
After reading other reviews, I feel like I may have got a lemon. I wear a medium in LL bean tees, shirts, boatnecks, etc. I ordered this shirt in a medium and could barely pull it over my neck. It fit like a rubber band - so it is going back. I am not going to exchange the size because I would have to go two sizes up just to be able to wear it and then I fear the fit will be poor.

Rated 3 out of 5 by filumena2 weathered striped tees.............
Must agree with another reviewer....the material is thin....but it is more than that... I found that these tees do run long...@ 3" longer than most tee shirts. Got the blue and coral.... The blue stripe 's colors are bright but the coral's are a disappointment.. they look faded or washed out. Is this the look you want? The tees are nice looking inline.. but just don't look great in person..ie..material too thin, colors too faded and tees are too long. Had to send them back. You can do better llbean!

Rated 2 out of 5 by STLCardLover Flimsy Fabric
This shirt is a very cute design and the muted colors are nice but the fabric is flimsy like a worn out tee shirt. Will have to be ironed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cincimom Comfortable, fun shirt
I wasn't sure if this shirt was really my style, with the wide stripes, but I ordered the blue color in my usual LLBean size small and really love it! The boatneck is comfortable as well as the light cotton fabric. I like the roll-up sleeves held in place with the button for warmer days. It's really a nice departure from my typical tops.

I love this shirt! It is soft and stretchy that makes for a trim, comfortable fit. I found this shirt sized slightly small. I normally wear mediums in llbean shirts, but the medium was slightly snug-it still fits and looks well.

Great Shirt. Really hesitated since stripes are not my thing. But I am so glad I bought this shirt. So comfortable and light, yet warm and cozy.
Bought both the Coral and the Natural which by the way has green, taupe,and beige stripes. The one on the model looks like it has blue, green and beige stripes. Just ordered the Indigo Blue also. The color blue is also not my thing, but since I am so fond of the other two shirts, I am willing to take a chance of the Blue, especially since I have a couple of straight leg white jeans for summer. I wear a Small, but I am one of those ladies that is somewhat "Busty". I find my regular size small fits just fine in that area by wearing a seamless minimizer Bra. In fact since the shirts are slightly fitted, I look slimmer in them.
Anyway, great departure from my usual solid color picks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by janieangel So glad I bought these!
I purchased one of the indigo stripes and one of the natural stripes and I couldn't be happier. I received them yesterday and am wearing one today. It feels as soft as butter! And, I absolutely love the natural background with the stripes. As is typical with L L Bean merchandise, the attention to detail and quality is evident in the soft material, great fit and I love the roll-up sleeves with the button tab. I noted that a few other reviewers mentioned the lightweight material. Yes, the material is lighter weight than some other T-shirts but it is not see-through and I think the lightness is an asset in the warm summer months. Oh, and the size seems true. I normally wear a large in a T-shirt and that's what I ordered. It fits great.....very flattering fit. LOVE IT!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by BeansRegular Summer Classic
I have a bias towards striped shirts for summer, and found these shirts to be a great addition to my wardrobe. I have the natural stripe and just ordered the indigo stripe. I have a straight figure and my usual XS size fit just fine from the shoulders and bust through the hips. I can imagine that curvier ladies might need to size up one size since the hips and bust are not particularly generous (but work perfectly for the straighter figure in your true size). The fabric is light enough for summer (but not cheap or flimsy) and is not see- through ( I tried it on with a tan patterned bra underneath and the pattern did not show). As I do not care for 3/4 sleeves, I like the option of leaving the sleeves rolled up and buttoned up to elbow level. I have successfully spot washed the shirt during the short initial wearing and do not foresee any problems with it in a regular wash load. The boatneck is nice, but not wide enough to expose bra straps.
Overall, a very comfortable and light summer tee. I would like to see more than 3 or 4 color options available, since some of them seem to sell out very quickly.
