Rated 4 out of 5 by TurkanaGirl Wonderful fabric, difficult fit for me
I'm 5'7" 138 lbs: long in the legs and hips and short in the torso and arms, with a reasonably narrow waist and 34B chest size. I frequently have difficulties finding shirts that are short enough to not hang or wrinkle around my hips. Unfortunately this shirt is not the solution I LOVE the Pima fabric and the neck styling and I really, really wanted this to work, but no dice with the sizing. The Petite Medium was just too big overall. The Petite Small was close to my size, but too bulky around the waist so made me look fat; the shirt came all the way down to my hips and just kind of sat there with tons of extra fabric around my midriff. The Regular Extra Small was the right length and OK around the waist, too small in the bust and armpit area - lots of wrinkles. Had to send them all back. If you are sized like me, I HAVE had success in the 3/4 sleeve Pima Cotton Polo in Small. Try it and you will not be disappointed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by NAES Great Fit
I bought 5 colors once they were put on sale. So comfortable and the extra design on the V neck makes it easy to dress up even as a cotton shirt. Great for spring, summer, fall. Probably too thin for winter.

Rated 3 out of 5 by BruinFan nice material but the color was not what I expecte
I ordered several sizes and several colors of this top because lately, I am never really sure what color I am going to get. I wish the website had a page that displays all the colors with all the names of the colors used, so I could see where a certain color is on the color spectrum. And, when you click on the color, you can add relevant comments about that color, like, this is a dull red, this is more blue green than blue, etc. Anyway, I ordered the color Cobalt, and that color top is deep purple. I was expecting a rich blue shade, but it is definitely purple. Soft Cobalt is closer to what I think is Cobalt. When I checked Cobalt color on the website, it looks like a rich blue! Kind of frustrating - will have to return.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bettina It's just the color
I was looking for something new to begin the summer season next year and this looked good. The style, fit, size and material were all fine, but the color (yellow) was not what I would wear. The on-line yellow (sun) looked fine but the top is more of a dark goldenrod so I knew it would hang on a hanger - always rejected. L.L.Bean usually comes through.

Rated 3 out of 5 by clothesllbean Runs very large
Be aware these shirts run VERY large. The shirts are listed as slightly fitted. However, I would classify it more as baggy or relaxed fit. I normally wear size 0-2 and ordered the XS petite. Based on the listed measurements for the size, it should have been a decent fit. The shirt is at least 2-3 sizes too big!!
The shirt is very soft and the color pretty though different from the color on the website. The color is Emerald Spruce which on the website looks like a green. IN reality, it more like a muted green-blue.
The styling is nice, esp if I could have 3 inches taken in on the sides. Since it is 100% cotton, I am hoping it will shrink to a better fit with a few washes in hot water and dried on high.

Rated 3 out of 5 by patsy39 Fit and color
I was disappointed with this Pima Crossover top. The size was smaller than your normal sizing for your tops. The color was a bright blue instead of the color on the color chart. I would still recommend the shirt, but if you want a looser fit order next size larger. Also please let customers know where the shirts are manufactured. I prefer American made. Thank you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SouthwestSam Love the styling, but ... !
I tried these on in the store and opted for the Petite Small because it fit best (I am usually a petite medium). The length, at 24", was great. But after washing once, the length became 22", and after the second wash, it is 21". The rest of the shirt still fits great. I returned them for a Regular Small (not petite), so that I still like the length after the shrinkage. Otherwise, I really love the styling!

I thought I would give this shirt a try. It is a new and different style for me. Very comfortable and I like the fit.

This is a lovely shirt. Great fabric, fit, and color. I wear a 12 and got a medium as I find LL Bean large too baggy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LilRed nice fit, nice fabric
I came online to buy two more of these shirts - the fit is perfect for me and the fabric is silky. I'm a little over 5'3" and small on top, but with "beefy" upper arms. The small regular is a perfect fit. I'm long waisted and the hem hits at hipbone length. The design is perfect to dress up or down. Like others have commented, the pleats at the neckline require some attention in laundering. I just take them out a little damp, press the pleats flat by hand, and hang to finish drying.
