Rated 5 out of 5 by Ashleywmc LOVE THIS SWEATER!
I just received this sweater and I love it! I sized up, per the previous reviews. At first, I was second guessing that decision, as it was a little big. But, after washing it per the instructions, the sweater weave tightened a tad (which I had hoped it would) and now it is just perfect! This may be my favorite LL Bean sweater of all time. It is a substantial weight but doesn't constrict or limit movement. Warm and soft. The natural/navy stripe is rich. Love. If you are on the fence, as I was... just buy it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by WheatenLover Glad I read the reviews
Many of the reviews on this item state that the sweater runs small. I agree. Typically, I wear a medium. However, after reading the other reviews on this sweater, I ordered a large and am I glad I did. A large fits just fine and a medium would have been tight. The sweater itself is beautiful and looks exactly like the photo online. I love it and I'm sure I'll wear it until for many years. If you're planning on buying one, I would urge you to think about a size larger than you usually purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DrMO Love it!
Stylish and comfy-- and, as with everything I have come to expect from LL Bean, of high quality. Fit is a bit snug (I ordered a medium and am usually between small and medium) so you might want to size up. A little pricey, hence the 4 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Clachnaben Smart, comfortable, versatile and warm.
This is a highly versatile garment with a multitude of uses ... throw it on over anything and you're immediately respectably turned out. I've been waiting for many years for the smart cardigan to return. I'd love to see this one in black.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Limestone Lovely color but . . .
This sweater is a lovely color but upon seeing it in person and trying it on, I do not think it is worth the price so I am returning it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MoreBeanTheBetter Feels wonderful...true to size
I ordered in 2 different sizes and for a change I kept the bigger one. I have lots of sweaters from Bean in XS but this one fit too tight in XS. I guess I'm saying it's not over sized like some of the other sweaters. I know it's meant to be worn open in the front (obviously since there isn't a button to tie it up) but I wish there was a button so it could be worn either way. All the same I am keeping the small and have worn it twice in the last week. It's very comfortable. The knit is pretty. Sleeves are plenty long. Just haven't washed it yet. Sometimes that can be a deal breaker but hopefully not in this case.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LoveArt Nice looking, wish it was over-sized fit
The yarn is so lovely. It has nice dry texture, soft feel and good weight.(neither heavy nor light). Nautical stripe is stylish. It was near perfect for me. But, unfortunately I had to return. It was much shorter than I anticipated even though I do know that I have longer torso. It was more like a blazer fit on me. I believe the description indicates "falls below hip". I wish it was an over-sized cardigan. Also, I think it will look better if the collar was slightly wider, and the collar did not lay flat very well. I would also like LLB to offer a cardigan just like this but with one button and a loop so that it will give an option how you want to wear it.
