Rated 3 out of 5 by TraditionalMom22 Comfy
This top is soft and comfy, but thats really all it has going for it. Description said it was slightly fitted but it doesn't seem fitted much to me. Its rather boxy and shapeless. It also is quite thin; doesn't offer any warmth at all, which is okay for me because of where I live but anyone living in a cold climate, looking for warmth would be very disappointed in this top. I wouldn't recommend this sweatshirt unless you are only looking for lightweight comfort and find it on sale.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sunfishgirl Perfect lightweight sweatshirt
If you are looking for a thick, warm sweatshirt, look elsewhere. But if you like the look of a sweatshirt without all the bulk to temper the cold, this is for you. I find it perfect for winter in Florida. Bought the olive green color, large, and it fits great. Love this sweatshirt, good quality, and plan to purchase another.

Rated 2 out of 5 by CMSMom Not at all what I expected.
From the description I expected a soft sweatshirt. What I got was only slightly heavier than a t shirt styled like a sweatshirt. I have always ordered a large and had perfect fit but this was way too small and tight to wear at all.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Tortuga30 Comfortable, great fit, beautiful color!
Coral color is beautiful. Fit is just right. 5'1" 134 lbs. Ordered Small Regular. It's not a traditional cotton sweatshirt material. Feels more like athletic wear as it has some stretch and elasticity. Overall I would recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Northstar10 Finally, a Plus-Size non-hoody
I have looked forever online and in stores for a simple, good-quality, Plus-Size non-hoody sweatshirt that isn't all blinged-out or appliqued or banded or draw-stringed or whatever. Now I've finally found it. The simple design not only fits me well but is more flattering to my figure than most sweatshirts. I also like the lighter weight. I have owned heavier-weight sweatshirts and they are just too bulky and hot for me. Thanks, LL Bean, for thinking of us Plus Size women with this sweatshirt. I plan to buy more.

Rated 3 out of 5 by PAChickenFarmer pretty, but too flimsy
on the plus side, the sweatshirt is soft and pretty. On the flip side, it is very thin, and not nearly warm enough for me. Plus, it shrank after one washing so that now it fits a little tight. I am a normal sized woman (5'5", 130 lbs) but this medium just doesn't give me the room I want, especially in the arms.
I usually buy LL Bean's Men's sweatshirts and now I know why. Won't buy the Women's version again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MsABeaN Boxy Fit
Love the fabric of this sweatshirt although the shirt is shaped like a box and not flattering. I'm 5'4" normally wear a size M, the size M in this sweatshirt is huge, a size small would have worked for me with plenty of room to spare. Wanted to return this item, but the cost of postage was insane.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Seattlebarb Deceptive
From the picture and description, I was expecting the standard sweatshirt, the kind I wear all winter around here. Instead, it was very thin, more like a long-sleeved t-shirt. The description should be changed to reflect what it truly is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LabMomRN Comfortable, Flattering and Warm!
I think the reason some folks are dissatisfied with this sweatshirt is that the fabric is not the typical heavy weight of a regular sweatshirt. It's the thickness of flannel but more stretchy and soft. I love mine and find it just as warm as a regular sweatshirt but without the bulk and stiffness. What I particularly love is that it's straight and tunic length. Much more flattering than having a tight hem band with the ugly puffing around the waist of a traditional sweatshirt. It washes beautifully and I'm very satisfied with the quality. It may be debatable whether or not ANYthing LLBean sells is worth the price but I don't think it's more overpriced than any other items they offer. There's nothing cheap looking or cheap feeling about it, in my opinion. I can see that it will be a go-to with jeans on chilly days and will probably order another one. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by MissBrenda perfect sleep top
I recently purchased this sweatshirt in the dark blue. I had some coupons to use, otherwise I think it's too pricey for a sweatshirt. It is a lighter weight, but,for me it's a perfect top for sleeping, paired with plaid flannel bottoms. We keep our house fairly cool in the winter.I've washed it many times in cool water and medium drier, with no shrinkage or loss of color. I'm 5"3 155lbs, apple shape, and went with the petite XL. I came back to buy the dark green, but it was sold out.
