Rated 5 out of 5 by cincy23 Please bring this sweater back!!
This is a great light-weight sweater. Really stylish fit. Sometimes a boatneck sweater is too wide on the shoulders, but not this one. Please bring it back!

I got this sweater in the green last year and loved it. I espectially like the neckline, and the fit and feel are both perfect. Hoping to get another, I've just discovered that you no longer have any Smalls. Please bring this one back (and in other colors, too)!

This is a nice sweater. I think it runs a bit big. The photo on the model makes it look quite fitted, but it's not. I like the extra length. The knit is very soft.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 8everly Lightweight sweater
This is a great, lightweight, classic sweater! I love the subtle texture of the sweater stitch and the neckline is flattering. Though it is lightweight, it is not sheer, so it can be worn on its own. I'm 5'4", 34Ax29x39 and my usual XS fits great. Washing & drying does not seem to change the size & fit (though I only dry it enough to shake out the wrinkles and hang dry it the rest of the way). I bought this in the heathered blue color and in person the sweater is a slightly more washed out color than what is represented online, but still a great color. I would have bought another one in a different color but my size is now sold out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FabricFancier Surprised how much I (really) like this sweater!
I have two of these sweaters, one in the linen color and one in the mid-blue, which was called indigo heather but isn't a dark blue as the name implies. I normally order size small from LLBean (although in middle age I'm finding with most other brands I am often now a medium.) But small wasn't available in the linen color I wanted, and since I planned to wear the sweater over a lightweight shirt, a medium seemed like a good choice anyway. I did find that the sweaters shrunk somewhat after laundering, which actually was a better result in the fit for me. Just so you know, I only use warm water for laundry, not hot, and I only dry things like these sweaters for 10 minutes, and then hang them up on a thick hanger to finish drying. So the fact that they shrunk without having been through a hot water wash and a full dryer cycle should be noted. But, the shrinkage brought the sleeve length and overall fit into the perfect range for me, so it wasn't a bad thing. If you are a borderline size I'd go with the bigger and then see how it fits after washing. LLBean women's clothing is not notable for being elegant but I would say that these sweaters come close. The lighter weight produces a nice drape, and the interesting texture and flattering neckline styling really give them a classy appearance. I do not care for heavy, bulky cotton sweaters, so for me these ones are great. That said, they won't offer a lot of warmth if you live where winters are cold--they just aren't made for that--but I do find that with a lightweight shirt underneath they provide a very "comforting" layer of warmth in other seasons.

This is my favorite go to sweater. I have both the blue and linen colors and was hoping to get the green, but it's out in my size. Please don't discontinue I will check back

Very flattering, lightweight sweater. It's fitted, but not as fitted as pictured. The sleeves, which look too long on the model, are slightly too short.

I'll wear this, but it's a little skimpier than I expected. Just the way my daughter likes them!

Very comfortable, true to fit. Wears well with jeans, skirts, and dress pants. I bought the seafoam green color-beautiful. The only reason that I didn't rank it higher is that I haven't worn it much (it is long-sleeved and it has been hot and humid here in NC), but it is light weight and should be a staple when it cools below 80.

Rated 5 out of 5 by hubbyofshopper classic style and fit
Fitted but not clingy, and in subtle colors, this light knit is perfect for daytime wear in the spring and fall and summer evenings in Virginia, and can work for casual or more dressy occasions. Best of all, it has LONG (not 3/4 length) sleeves. For those of us who are tall, this is the best look. I have one in aqua and another in light taupe and have been complimented on both. Alas the coral was sold out in my size.
