Rated 4 out of 5 by ShopsatLLB Boatneck Tunic
I usually wear a medium in LLBean tops which I got 2 of these since they were such a great price. I am 5'6", about 135 lbs, with fairly broad shoulders and long arms.
The positives: Length is good for me and doesn't ride up when I bend over. Fabric is nice after 2 washings. Doesn't seem to wrinkle much after being packed. Colors have stayed pretty true without fading.
The negative is that even with the boatneck extra "tabs" to prevent bra straps from showing I have had problems no matter which type of bra I wear. This is the first LL Bean boatneck I have had this problem with. Both shirts I got are the same size with the same problem. I kept both tunics since they were marked down enough not for me to return them. I have to slip my bra straps further down my shoulders so they don't show which is a bit uncomfortable. Thus the 4 star rating.

Please bring back this style in navy and white this year. This tee does not pill in the armpits, bought duplicates for myself, best friend, and my mom. Fantastic quality.

Rated 3 out of 5 by HappytoRun Cute but Longer than expected
I received the aqua pullover as a gift and was immediately fond of the bright color. It was also very soft to the touch. But when I tried it on, I found that it was much longer than I anticipated and also had an unattractive boxy fit. To put things in perspective, I received a small and I am 5'7" and around 135 lbs. Luckily, the pullover works well when tucked into a pair of jeans with a stylish belt.
If ordering, I would recommend getting a smaller size than your usual LL Bean size.

How does LLBean manage to make summer clothes that are both classic and trendy? This shirt delivers.
I ordered the aqua. It's very pretty but not girly. It fits fine. So far, I've washed this shirt twice, in cold water only, and laid it flat to dry. No noticeable shrinking with this cleaning method.
My one complaint isn't about the shirt but about its description. Why can't Bean give us the length of this shirt? As a tall woman with a long torso, "past the hip" doesn't mean the same to me as it does to someone of average build. Please, we need the length of the shirts we buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Phoneloser Well made, great fit
The colors on this shirt are really pretty. I have the aqua. It is a medium weight cotton. I ordered a large Petite which is roomy. I am 5'2" and busty but it's not tight and has a slight shape-- comfortable but not boxy. The boat neck is flattering. This is a shirt I could wear all year round. Mine was made in Peru with washing instructions in Spanish and Chinese.

I love this top. The colors I preferred were already sold out, so will order earlier next year. I found it to run pretty true to size. It washes well and had no shrinkage. I do not put my clothes in the dryer, but hang it to dry and touch up with an iron. It really doesn't need to be ironed, but I am fussy about wrinkles.

This is a very nice shirt. It is a little heavier than your usual T-shirt and runs a little bit larger.
I love the length ( I hate short T's). It is well worth the price and I'm sure I'll get a lot of wear out of it.
It laundered very well....no shrinkage or fading.

Rated 3 out of 5 by NHGlove It runs small and feels like it would shrink
I loved this top on but I was sure it would shrink. It reminded me of the old LL Bean tops, well made and substantial but something about the material just told me it was going to shrink, even if I air-dried it. Originally, I had ordered two colors, each in XL.
I've gained some weight due to a health condidtion so I returned those tops for one in size 1X. Neither my husband nor I could see one iota of difference in the fit, thus it will go back with the first shirts.
I've been an LL Bean customer for ages, and I can always tell when a shirt is going to shrink.

Well I have to return this shirt because the boat neck is too wide even though I ordered petite. Should have realized this since I usually have this problem with boat necks. I gave it a higher rating because the knit, fabric and color are very nice and on the right person, would look nice. If you have nice broad shoulders this would look nice, however, petite ladies it's a little long and wide even in the petite size.
