Rated 3 out of 5 by KathrynEL Not what I was looking for
This sweatshirt, as mentioned by many other reviewers, is far thinner than what I was looking for (I didn't read the reviews before purchasing, silly me!). Additionally, the sizing is very small. The description describes the shirt as a "relaxed" fit--a more generous cut, but I find this to be a more slim fitting sweatshirt. I would recommend sizing up, if possible. Didn't LL Bean used to offer XXL for women's clothing? If available, I would have exchanged for that size. I have a newborn at home and was looking for some nice, loose-fitting lounge wear. I'd say I'm a true 16-18 in clothing, and the XL is supposed to fit sizes 18-20. I'm keeping it because it is comfortable enough, but beware with sizing.

Rated 3 out of 5 by SmartCookie62 Too small
I really wanted to wear this sweatshirt as soon as it arrived. I ordered by the measurements on the size chart. A small should have fit. But it didn't. It was tight in the shoulders and hips, and the sleeves were too short. It's going back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonno My 'go-to' sweat shirt.
I LOVE this sweat shirt! It is a dressier sweat that I like to wear over a long sleeved blouse. I have four of them and wear them with a variety of colored/patterned shirts underneath. They tend to look more like a sweater this way which is fine since I can wear them more places. The quality is typically 'LL Bean' - they wash and wear very well. The shirt is not too thick and easy to wear but still affords warmth. I wish they would bring back a former color - a sea foam green that I like very much, and add more colors to their petite line.

I just love this sweatshirt! The light aqua color is very flattering, and the feel is light and soft with just enough warmth for cool summer evenings. I bought size L, which fits me perfectly. I'll be wearing this for a long time!

I've been looking for a cotton sweatshirt that fits and looks good, and this is it. It's more fitted and not as heavy as a men's sweatshirt (which most cotton sweatshirts are) but it's perfect for a cool spring day like today. I love it and hope they do it in more colors. And I'd like a tee with these measurements.

Rated 3 out of 5 by NN4CR Not true sweats
A sweatshirt is a 100% cotton, thick, warm, soft, baggy, cozy shirt that gets sloppier yet more comfortable with age. That is not what this is. LLB seems to be aiming for a fancy designer sweatshirt, with thin, clingy, slippery material more suited to an evening gown. It looks like a sweatshirt, but it is 5% spandex and very lightweight and that changes it entirely. Some people might like this different weight and feel, the quality is still excellent. But to me, it's just not a sweatshirt. It's something else, it's not something you would throw on after working out, or wear to rake the leaves. But if you want to wear it with high heels and a chiffon scarf, it will work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by eatdrinkbemerry Love this
I agree it is not as heavy/thick as a traditional sweatshirt, but that is what I like about it. I think the description should be updated to more accurately reflect how it actually is. I can wear casual to work, but I am always hot there, so this is perfect for me. Comfy, nice colors, not clingy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by minilop Soft, stretchy, comfortable
This top is not a sweatshirt, but rather a very soft, comfortable crew neck top, cut in a sweatshirt style. It is lightweight and stretchy. I love it! But do not buy it thinking you are getting a heavy sweatshirt. I usually get medium size, but based on others comments, I ordered small and it fits great-still roomy and comfortable.

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.
