Rated 5 out of 5áby Kanzan Favorite Summer Tank
I bought every color they put out of these tanks 3 years ago. I wear them constantly during the hot summers here in Texas. They are such a great fit and oh so comfortable! They have worn like iron and have not faded over time. They're not too tight but not so loose it looks like you don't have a shape. I will definitely be buying more. I'm 5'6" and have weighed 140-125 during this time and the tops have fit great.

Rated 3 out of 5áby OnlineReviewee Not expecting a PJ fit.
I'm am either a large or extra large in LLBEAN; but the large did not fit, especially in the breast area. If you are typically a C cup and usually a large then this would be perfect for you! Perks for the material and would also suggest as a summer PJ top.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Nick0 Simply perfect.
Slightly loose, simple, comfortable fit. Ideal for me, who generally finds the elastic shelf in standard tanks unpleasantly containing. Perfect as an underlayer, classy even by itself. I bought one in each color and about three of the white. (It was on sale!) (I'm a 5'4'', 115 lb, B-cup; purchased size Misses Regular XS.)

Rated 5 out of 5áby CosmicBlue Good Choice
I just bought this tank in the navy and cream color combination. I like this color combination better then the navy and white shirt I alreay own. The fabric is a heavy, quality knit with double stitching on the neckline. The shoulder straps are wide, the armholes fit well, making it a comfortable tank which does not gap at the neckline. I plan to layer it with the L. L. Bean navy blazer and sweater I purchased this year.

Rated 4 out of 5áby eejl Mine was flawed
This Tee fits well and looks nice. I unfortunately I received a tee with a large slub of thread center front. I guess this one got past quality control. No shrinkage after washing.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Appleblossom Comfortable and concealing
I prefer this tank to the tanks from EB that contain lycra. This is pure cotton and a little stretchy but it doesn't hug my lumps. It's nice and long, unlike the pima garments which I would love to see in more reasonable lengths. Straps are wide and neckline is medium, not as attractive as lower cuts but nicely concealing.
Does NOT SHRINK.
Very comfortable in the summer heat and goes nicely under an SPF shirt for sunny climes.
I do wish there were more colors, but maybe next year. This came out sooooo late this season. I do like the heathers, as the plain double L knit colors are pretty flat.

Rated 5 out of 5áby monacr two thumbs up
I love everything about this tank. I have a terrible time finding tanks without too low cut of a neckline, but the scoop neck on this is just right. Form-fitting but not skin tight. Straps are thick enough that you don't have to worry about your bra straps, and the fabric is substantial enough that it's not see-through (even in the cream color). I did not find the tank to run large. I am generally a size 4 and followed L.L. Bean's sizing chart to purchase an extra small, and it fits great. I couldn't be happier with this tank; I'm crossing my fingers for more colors!

Rated 4 out of 5áby elizsil Finally, a top that is not boxy!
I have had zero luck with LL Bean tops--they are all boxy (even those labeled "slightly fitted") and they fall from the bust straight down to the waist and make you look like your torso and waist are as big as your bust. Not a good look when you have a 35 inch bust and a 25 inch waist. Finally took a chance on this top because it was labeled "fitted' and voila-a top that at least follows the shape of my body! The tank runs big though--I am usually a small and it was way too big. The X-small fits but I would by no means call it snug. The straps are thick and cover bra straps and the aqua color is pretty. Hope this tank represents a trend of LL Bean offering at least some tops that are more body conscious.

Rated 4 out of 5áby PetiteBeaniac Good coverage, nice colors, fabric a little thick
This tank gives great coverage for those of us who don't want it all to "hang out". In other words, I would wear it to do errands, etc. The colors are lovely--I got indigo. It is a little long for petite me, but ok. However, the fabric is quite thick for a tank and not therefore not as cool as the same style that I bought last year.

Rated 5 out of 5áby speakeasy perfect fit and fabric; need more colors!
This tank is perfect if you want adequate coverage that doesn't look frumpy. The fabric weight is excellent, i.e., neither see- through nor so thick and stiff as to lose its drape. The cut doesn't cling, yet it's not boxy, both a problem for people with small chests. I'm 5'8" and 117; although most of LLBean's tops are too short for me, the length of this tank is also great. The scoop neck isn't "trying too hard" (important when you're 57), yet it's deeper than a crew neck. And the sleeves give plenty of strap coverage. This is my second purchase of this top. The first one (last year) has washed great. I wear these alone with slacks and shorts all the time, but they layer well too. Two notes: I haven't washed these latest two tops yet. I'm writing this review for the solid tank, but your system is making me post it under the stripe version, which I haven't yet tried.
