Rated 5 out of 5 by MissFiona Faith restored in LL Bean sweaters
I'd had some bad luck with sweaters from LLBean in recent years. I ordered this one in small in the solid soft green color. It fits perfectly (I am 5'2" and 120 lb) and feels wonderful. It is cozy and soft, almost has a silky feel. The fit is not tight but is figure-flattering, not boxy. This is a great sweater, and I'm ordering another in the lilac. Secret desire: one in each color.

Rated 4 out of 5 by evaska Definitely Size UP
I wear a size 6 top and definitely needed a M in this sweater, and I NEVER wear a medium in LLBean sizes. Everything else I've bought in the last 2 years at least has been S or XS. Other than that, the sweater is gorgeous, and the Mountain Lilac color is truly spectacular--a very cool-toned pinky lilac. The stitchwork is interesting. Based on past experience with 100% cotton sweaters, I will dry clean (they get stiff in my experience of washing them at home).

Ooh la la. Bean is a master of cotton knits. This is a very, very flattering design. Sizing is true. Colour is true. Fits me like it shows on the model, hugging all the right curves. The weight of the yarn is substantial for a cool spring day. Neckline does not gap, sleeves are below wrist bone. Nice tunic length without being too long. Highly recommend. Go ahead girls and get this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MaggieInAmes Great sweater
The stitching makes this such an attractive sweater. I loved it but with my short, round figure I didn't do it justice. It will look great on taller, slimmer people. Wish I could have kept it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by CakesCakes Cute sweater, pain to care for
Bought this in the green. Fit is cute and flattering, true to size. Green color is very pretty. I had never bought a cotton sweater that couldn't go in the dryer before. When I hung it up to dry, it ended up losing all of its softness. I didn't want to try and dry it only to shrink it a few sizes so I returned it for another item.

Sorry, but I will be returning sweater as it does't fit. I expected a looser fit.

I love this cotton sweater! It looks good and it is very comfortable--keeps me warm on cool days but is not heavy weight. Love the colors! I highly recommend this sweater!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Wat5 LLBean's sizing has changed; order 1 size larger.
I was pleased that there was a continuation of the pattern on the back. Very important to me. A garment isn't complete to me if the back is plain.

I ordered an XL. I washed it, following directions (warm water, warm dryer). It shrank to at least a small. I couldn't even get my arms through the sleeves. It's on its way back to Maine as we speak..
