Rated 4 out of 5 Finally a tank that fits right!
The fit is great, not too constricting and yet figure-flattering. The armholes and the neckline are well-designed so it's cool and comfortable for biking while providing enough coverage when leaning forward. So hard to find nice tanks, I'm ordering 3 more in other colors. Next summer I'll get some more without waiting for them to go on sale to be sure I can get my favorite colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PikesPeakGal Soft and sturdy fabric and flattering style
I bought the small in navy/white and a medium in cream/tan. I am usually a small at LLB but in this style the M fits better (I'm 5'5, 125lb, and a 35" bust#. The fabric of these shirts is so soft and comfortable, yet thick and sturdy enough that it lays well and doesn't show what's underneath. I like the more modest neckline-especially for work, so I don't have to worry about my cleavage being visible when I bend over. This tank is sporty yet professional enough to wear to work, and looks cute with a sweater or blazer. I love the stripes, and hope to see more colors in the future #lets get inventive LLB and do combos like charcoal/mint, charcoal/lemon yellow, periwinkle/rose, lime/lavender, etc!!#

Rated 5 out of 5 by BeansRegular Simple and Perfect
I purchased this tank in the mint/cobalt stripe, but I have many that I bought in solid colors over the past years. (The stripe I bought goes perfectly with the tropical blue swim cover-up shorts and capris, which I also have). These tanks are simply the best that you will find for your money. The cotton is ribbed and follows your curves without clinging. The straps are wide enough to cover bra straps and extend far enough out that regular bra straps will not slip out. They wash and dry without shirkage or fading, and never wrinkle. Full coverage, substantial ribbed cotton without clinginess or show-through all lead up to perfect! The only change you could make, LLBean, is to offer them in more solids, stripes and other patterns in both neutral and pastels to deeper, more saturated colors for year-round layering use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Daisylight Love them!
I purchased two of these tanks a couple of years ago when they were on sale. At that time, there was not a large selection of colors available. I just recently purchased three more to take on vacation with me, along with the originals. The are soft, comfortable, and true to size. They also wash well. I have been to the mall to shop for tanks, but nothing compares to these. I wish they came in more colors, I would buy them all! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by agatha2 Comfortable tank
These are the best tanks I have ever found. They aren't too low at the neck. the straps hide bra straps well. They have some shape to them without being too snug. Run true to size. They wash well and are ready to wear from the dryer They work very well under blouses
or jackets. These are my go to tanks! I hope they offer more colors
in the next batch.....and don't change the fit/style!

Rated 4 out of 5 by WillysMom Runs Small
I am usually a size S but since I think LLBean runs roomy, I ordered a S and XS. I am 5'6", 130#. I am returning both for M as the S is tight enough that my bra straps show through raised on the back. I was surprised and since they are 100% cotton, can't risk shrinkage.

Rated 4 out of 5 by sunshine82 Looks nice and covers bra straps
The fabric is thick but cool and soft. I like the slightly lower cut on the neckline and that it covers my bra straps. It was really long though and tended to bunch at the small of my back so I had to keep pulling it down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by wildcatter Best Tank Top Ever!
I ordered two of these for a friend who is VERY particular about tank tops. She loves these for the all-cotton material and perfect fit, says they are the best tank tops she ever had! Why do you have such a limited selection? If you start carrying the double L tank tops in more colors, you can make a fortune!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Szeckrich Great fit
Usually have trouble with tank tops fitting as the arm holes can be too large, the straps too narrow, the fabric see-through, etc. This fits great and looks great with just enough cling for a slimming look - but not too much. Don't have to worry about wearing a special bra with this tank. This covers it. Wish they had solid colors in this fabric and cut. This is a great looking sleeveless in a nice fabric.

Rated 4 out of 5 by snapnbean Soft, good fit, scratchy label
I got this tank top in beeswax and really like the color - true to what was on the webpage. I wear a Medium in LL Bean mock turtlenecks and the tank top in Medium fit me, although a little snugger than the turtlenecks. The neckline is a bit higher than most tanks, but not bothersome. My only complaint is the scratchy labels that are sewn into the side seam. I tried cutting them off close to the seam, but they still irritated my skin. I ended up ripping out the stitching to remove the papery-stiff labels and then re-sewing the side seam.
