Rated 5 out of 5áby Bethanylu Warm and Soft
This is a great sweater - very comfortable, very warm, perfect fit (I'm petite) and quality construction. I recommend it highly as a gift or personal purchase for anyone who is looking for a substantial "cardigan," an alternative to a button front.

Great fit. I now have three and wear them both to work and with jeans. I do find the zippers hard to line up though.

Rated 2 out of 5áby UpstateNewYorker5 Great Until Washed
First, I don't know why this keeps saying I'm reviewing the striped version of this sweater-- mine is solid off-white. I admired this sweater when a friend of mine wore it and she recommended I get one, except that she then told me that hers had shrunk and gotten stiff after washing to such an extent that it was ruined. But she is not particular with labels and I learned she had put it in the dryer, so I didn't worry much. I got the sweater and washed according to directions (reshaped and dried flat), but after two washes, it is almost unwearable. It has gotten very stiff and shrunk quite a lot. When I tugged a bit on it to try to make the sleeves more comfortable, it stayed in that stretched-out mishapen shape. The ribbing has lost its shape and is wavy and the fabric is uncomfortably stiff. I keep wondering if I might have done something wrong in washing it, but I followed the directions, washed it in a fabric bag and dried it on a sweater rack. I thought this was going to be my favorite sweater for the winter, but I doubt I'll wear it again. What a disappointment.

The sweater fits great when you first put in on but then it starts to stretch out as you wear it. The sleeves start out at you wrist and end up down over your hands. Guess that is the price of 100% cotton.

Bring more colors in these sweaters, and I would buy them all! I have the beige and the blue colors both. Bought them within a week of each other. Fits is good- they could be just a tad longer, however.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Elyse Pleae restock rich purple!
I like this sweater. I bought one in cream as a default and have others in this style from other manufacturers. I find this style very versatile, and LLBean's seems to be the best quality. Unfortunately, I really really want the "rich purple" which seems to have been sold out from the day the catalog was delivered to me. I keep checking, but alas.... no luck.

I have two of these lovely sweaters, lime green and light pink. I would like to order the purple but they don't have my size. I wish they carried more of a selection in sizes.

Rated 3 out of 5áby NCGardenGirl beautiful sweater, but not "semi-fitted"
I love zip-neck sweaters and I really, really wanted this one, but I had to return it. The description says "semi-fitted" but I think it would be more accurate to say "relaxed." The sides of the sweater hung straight down from my arm pits to my hips, giving me no shape at all. I have other "semi-fitted" clothing from LLBean, including several Fitness Fleece zip necks and polo shirts, and those have a wonderful curve from the armpit to the hip, giving a very nice flattering silhouette without being too tight. I was hoping for the same in this sweater and was disappointed. I must say the fabric and construction are wonderful - I love the soft, cozy cotton and excellent construction -- I wish I could buy one in every color! If you like a relaxed fit, this is a great sweater.
