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.

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.
