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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Rachelleleigh Not a sweatshirt, order a bigger size
While I do still like the shirt, I wouldn't call this a sweatshirt. It is very thin. Also, I normally wear a small or medium, and in this shirt, I am able to wear a large (I don't want a snug fit in a shirt I am wearing for errands or lounging at home). If I ordered my true size, it would have been snug. I ordered the blue and teal and the colors are great. I wanted a true sweatshirt though (like they offer for men at LL Bean).

Rated 5 out of 5 by patinigal Excellent!
I absolutely love this sweatshirt! It is one of the first pieces I've bought from LL Bean, and completely made me a convert! It is thin as some have mentioned, but so incredibly soft and with a less bulky, more modern look and feel. It still manages to be warm and comfy without adding 50 pounds of fleece. It's great for layering, and I can even wear it with skirts and necklaces to dress it up. I want it in every colour! It's really become a go to in my wardrobe. Can't wait to order more.

Rated 1 out of 5 by SushiQueen Poor quality
I was very disappointed in this sweatshirt. It's made of extremely thin and skimpy material, with way more stretch than I expected. There is no hefty cotton feeling to it. Even though they claim it's only 5% spandex it has a cheap synthetic feel . Definitely overpriced for such a shoddy garment. I am returning it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by OnlineBeanShopper another return
Ordered 2: mallard green and sunlit coral. Colors are beautiful.
BUT, as others have commented, these are way to thin and stretchy. Sizing is consistent with a medium that I normally wear but "on me" it is way too long. Where are the regular "sweatshirts"?
I used to find so many items in LLBeans catalog for my wish list. Sadly, not any more.

Rated 3 out of 5 by merrymaker Soft but thin
Bought this in emerald green and love the color. It is soft and comfortable. But the shirt just doesn't do anything for me. It doesn't have any "body" to it... a limp, thin, clingy fit.. and its a little on the short side. (I am 5'6") However, it could fit another figure fine. I do like the zip-up version of these sweats, though. Good to find a zip sweatshirt that is a little more dressy and not too heavy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by iShop2Buy Missing 1X
Even though I'm loosing weight I miss the 1X shirts. They are great for layering and are not to hot as some sweatshirts can be. They are oh so soft. I love them. Bring back the 1x for the crew shirts. :)

Rated 2 out of 5 by ethelouise Not what I was expecting
I really loved the larkspur heather (blue) color pictured on-line and in the catalog. It was described as ultra-soft and I was expecting a traditional sweatshirt that started out soft and comfortable. Well, the color is a nice blue, but the "heather" is actually streaks of darker color globbed together which makes the sweatshirt look stained. Worse, the fabric is very stretchy, so it seems more like a thick t-shirt, rather than a sweatshirt. Certainly, not a product worth $40.

Rated 1 out of 5 by rockyroad53 Larkspur Heather crewneck sweatshirt
Bought the Larkspur and the Gray. The gray heather is exactly what you'd expect. The larkspur heather would have been a pretty color but the heathering is totally weird and very unappealing. I really don't know how to describe it but suffice it to say I felt compelled to warn potential buyers. This is the first review I have written. I've appreciated others reviews so will consider doing more of these in the future but most times I am satisfied with LL Bean products and rarely is the color my reason for return. I am keeping the gray - love it, lightweight and soft. Larkspur going back. So my rating is specific to this color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ceeaire Great summer sweatshirt
I love these sweatshirts. They are soft and look great. I like the lighter fabric for summer nights, and expect they will be great as three season basics. More colors please. :)
