Rated 5 out of 5 by Canoehead I adore these tees
I have several colors. As others mentioned, I am normally a medium in bean but always order up for the " fitted " styles. Love the fabric and the fit and the green is a great color. I wear these every day on my power walks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by OSUfaninMichigan it's a keeper
I just wore my new fitness tee on a bike ride to pay my water bill. I wanted to try it out b/c I am taking it next week on a camping/hiking trip. I love it! The long length is great,the sleeves are a nice length, not cap style, so that is a big plus. I got the large b/c I don't like tight and clingy shirts. I am a med person. I got the blue pine which I think is more of a turquoise, still a nice bright color. I want the orange! Please get some more in stock. I'll probably get a long-sleeved version of this shirt for spring and fall riding and hiking. Another quality product from a quality company.

Feels like skin it's so comfortable - it's body hugging - washed and dried very well - glad I purchased two...if you like it less hugging, order size up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by llbeanershopaholic Runs small
Thank you to prior reviewers! I generally am a medium in llbean tops but ordered a large. It fits well though it is still somewhat clingy. My main negative issue is that it really shows off my bra, you can see the outline of it in the front. However, it is a great fitness shirt. I have four, use them all the time, and they are great for wicking moisture. When I sweat it doesn't show off arm pit stains and it doesn't hold in body odor either.

Rated 5 out of 5 by shopperbythesea Love the longer length!!!
I am of average height (5'6") and I love the longer length on this shirt. It's perfect for doing spin class. When leaning over your bike, it does not creep up your back! This is also the reason this shirt is great for yoga or pilates or anything that requires you to reach out your arms over your head. I can see how it may be too long for a really petite woman, but it's great for me!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Chicstyleplus '41/2 stars' and a great shirt..
Excellent fabric,the nicest/softest I have come across in ages..wonderful on one`s skin very,very comfortable.and smart looking and the colours are beautiful..The only down side is that the shirt is a bit too long in the body length.....I have a bust so I ordered a size medium regular.It comes in bright colours and is well made..I can see a professional athlete liking it very much..I am short so perhaps the longer length might be fine for a taller person..I do like L.L.Bean a great deal..

Rated 5 out of 5 by Abbeyroad Fitness Tee, Short -sleeve
I like this shirt and I am glad that I ordered up to a medium from my usual small size. This shirt is very fitted so I wanted a looser fit for the gym. The neckline is very comfortable and I love the feel of the fabric. Personally I like the longer length because it doesn't ride up during a gym workout.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CinBen Perfect Length!
Some of the reviewers mentioned that these tees were too long for them. That's what I love about them. I use these tees for my gym workouts. I don't have to worry about exposing my belly when I'm doing squat jumps, tricep extensions, or any exercise my trainer has come up with so far. I'm 53, with glow-in-the-dark-white skin, so I like keeping my belly to myself :-)
These tees are very comfortable and do not interfere with my range of motion while working out. I LOVE them!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sunfishgirl Terrific workout shirt
This workout shirt provides ample coverage, both at top and rear for a comfortable gym workout. Fits wonderfully and truly makes my time at the gym productive and worry-free. The v-neck-type shirts are too peek-a-boo for me, when I lean forward, etc. You won't be disappointed.

Rated 2 out of 5 by 8everly Scratchy seams
I am normally an XS is LL Bean tops but sized up to an S based on the tighter fit of this top. I'm 5'4", 34Ax29x39. The fit of the S was good, fitted but loose, but I wish I had sized up to an M for an even roomier fit because I'm pear shaped and the fit at the hips was a bit snug. I ordered the Citron which was a nice, bright chartreuse color.
In general, this is an okay top but two things I don't like are the weight of the fabric and the seams. I don't find this shirt comfortable for active use.
I wore this to a martial arts class and the synthetic material and medium weight of the fabric had me feeling hotter and sweatier than when I wear cotton/cotton-blend shirts. The shirt has side panels that are a different knit and have micro-perforations (which is really hard to see even if zoomed in on the bright yellow top shown with the model) but I did not feel as though the top has good enough ventilation.
But the thing I disliked the most was the scratchy seams. There are multiple panels used in the construction of this shirt and they are pieced together with an overlocked stitch, which makes the seams lie flat. But because a heavy weight, synthetic thread was used the seams feel rough, scratchy & uncomfortable.
