Rated 5 out of 5áby worldtraveler52 Very comfy
I love the soft cotton material. Even after repeated washings it remained soft with very little shrinkage. I was looking for a comfortable nightgown and this met my expectations. I recently ordered the pjs in the same material.

Rated 4 out of 5áby Walli Great Length Night Shirt/Gown
Finally a short night gown that is the perfect length. I'm 5'6" and it comes right at my knee. The fabric is VERY soft and the cut is comfortable to sleep in. The fabric is pretty hefty though and it will be too hot once we get into warmer weather. I have cold washed and hot dryed this garment about 5 times now and it has not shrunk at all. The neckline is not as flat as it was originally it has developed a bit of a ripple, at this point it's not an issue for me. I bought the blk/wht stripe with pink trim, I think the other colors available are odd combinations. It would be nice if it was offered in a summer weight fabric.

áby travellllller Shrinks- but very soft
The first one arrived with a hole in it. I was shocked it passed quality control since it was on the front of the night gown. I tried it on anyway just to check the size. I always order an XL because I like my gowns roomy. When I put it on it was enormous- like soo big that it looked horrible. Since all of my night wear from LL BEAN has always shrunk I decided to get the replacement in the same size and just count on it shrinking. I had to wait a week for the replacement to arrive. The XL replacement arrived and I could immediately tell it was a different size than the one before. I have a feeling that the first one that was marked as an XL was really a plus-sized gown because it was no where near the same size cut as this one. This one actually looked good on me from the time I tried it on. I decided to take measurements on the gown to see if it would shrink during the first wash and it did. As you can see from the pictures below (sorry they are soo grainy) it shrank 1.5 inches in the width and then 1.5 inches in the length. It is still a longer gown compared to other night shirts that I have from LL BEAN but washing it once definitely shrinks the size. I was hoping to be able to wear this gown around company (extended family members) but due to the cream colored material I would need to wear a bra under it in order to look decent. This probably would not be the case if I had chosen a dark color instead of the cream with blue stripe- however, after it shrank the top is a bit more form fitting and clingy so it might happen with the darker material too- who knows. The gown is extremely soft. I love how it feels. I would love for LL BEAN to make this same gown but with a wild print (to distract the eye) on it so that I could wear it around company without having to wear a bra under it- mainly because it is longer than other nightshirts and sooo soft --and I love it!

Rated 5 out of 5áby Happyhyper Love it
Soft, warm but not hot. 5'4" 130 lbs and the small fits great. I can't stand flannel or long sleeves and this is comfy and just right for cool nights.

Rated 4 out of 5áby MishaT Almost perfect except heavy fabric
Love the length - right below knee. Fabric is soft and cozy, but warm. Will love this for the winter - too heavy for summer.

Rated 3 out of 5áby Christyf Disappointed
When I saw this nightgown I was excited because it was what I've been looking for but could not find - that is short-sleeved but knee length. All of the other knee lengths have longer sleeves. Anyway, the length is right, but the material is different from the other LL nightgowns which are pima cotton. This one is heavier and not what this mid-lifer was looking for to stay cool but covered through the night.

Rated 5 out of 5áby babyshopper super soft nightgown
Wonderfully soft and never binding under the arms.
Just what I was looking for. One problem for me personally,
is the scoop is a little big and falls off my shoulders sometimes while sleeping because I have narrow shoulders.
I am 5'4" and 123 lb and bought a medium so I could get it
below my knees which it is. Like the grey/pink color.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Doggerfolk Very Soft and Comfortable
This gown is very nice but I too wish it was a bit longer. I am 5'10" and it falls just above my knees. Soft, soft and soft. Too nice to send back - I may order another.

Rated 3 out of 5áby iijoanna Wearable - Selected the Pink & White Gown
I had expected the pink color to be more solid; the pink color has a slub effect where there is the primary pink color but with parts of white interwoven in the color. I was disappointed. As it is, the navy collar is solid and seems to be out-of-place with the slub pink color effect of the gown.
The fabric itself is very soft and nice to the touch. Very wearable for sleeping.
There is something missing here; I am not sure what it is -- I thought maybe a jacket or robe? I am not sure.
I am keeping the gown, however.
