Rated 1 out of 5 by libbiesmom disappointed
I recently ordered this in the soft pink stripe, and was so unhappy with it that I sent it back .The shape was off. The neckline was way too large and gappy, the placket has a strange little pleat under it. The shoulders were way too big, ( I am not a football player) and the horizontal stripes look cute in the pic but not so much on a person..I have the LL Bean 3/4 sleeve V-necks and love them ( although I have 3 in the "same" size , each fits differently.) I was so hoping that this would fit like the v-necks, but with short sleeves ( I really refuse to pay $40 for a nitegown and then cut the sleeves off) Too bad . The only good thing I can say is the fabric is soft.

Rated 5 out of 5 by wonderfulnini Wonderful and could wear as a dreass
I ordered this nightgown in blue and pink and wore the pink tonight for the first time. It could be worn as a dress. It is comfortable and a great length. The stripes are pretty and so is the trim. It looks great on. I have some dreses that look like this so that is why I say it could be worn as a dress. I ordered the pjs too and may go back and order another nightgown in pink and another set of pink pjs. I have to think about it. The weight is great not too light and not too heavy. The colors a beautiful. This is a winner, LLBean!

Rated 4 out of 5 by nightgale sleeves
Soft and cozy fabric. Stripes are cute. Only problem is my arms are cold, a nightgown that's midweight material like this should probably have long sleeves. I am returning and will exchange for the pant/top set in same design and fabric, which has long sleeves. I prefer this style of mid-calf length gown, but I see now this will never work with short sleeves, unless it's a hot climate, which this definitely is not.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Frontierwoman Comfortable, soft, great fit
I love the softness of the fabric. I also like the buttons which allow me to button or not for extra comfort. It holds it fit even after several washings. I like it so much I have ordered another one in a different color.

I ordered this nightgown and one made of special wicking fabric from another company for a trip to Germany and Austria, knowing that hot weather is fairly common there and that air conditioning is not. When the Bean gown arrived, I was impressed by the wonderfully soft fabric but wondered if it would be too substantial for the trip. Nevertheless, I packed them both and found that the Bean gown actually kept me drier and more comfortable than the wicking one! Granted, the temperatures were warm (mid-70s in our rooms) rather than truly hot, but still?I was very impressed. This gown is cute, well-cut, and very very, comfortable. My initial gown is grey, I just ordered the paper-white version, and I still have my eye on the pink one. Bean folks, this is a wonderful fabric for nightwear, and I hope that you use it in additional styles!

I have been discouraged with how thin and clingy a lot of knit sleepwear is these days. This nightgown is neither.

Rated 5 out of 5 by exbaystater love it....so soft!!!
At last LLBean has a nightgown that doesn't look (to me) like its meant for my grandmother (and I am that age so I know whereof I speak). I'm tall and have a hard time finding nightgowns that go to mid-knee. Before I ordered these (I bought 2) I even called LL and asked its length in my size. When it came and I tried it on, it fit perfectly to just the length I wanted! The material is soft and washes well and doesn't wrinkle. I am finding it a bit too warm for late FL spring and summer wear but no matter....come October I'll bring them out again. If they made it in a lighter material, I'd buy those, too.

I love this new nightgown -- I have several LL Bean nightgowns, but I keep washing and wearing this one over & over! I think I better buy it in the other colors! I'm wearing this in June in southern California and the nights are still a little cool; I don't know if it will be too hot to wear in July, August & Sept. I love how it goes in ever so slightly at the waist to add some femininity. I am comfortable in the medium at 5'9 and about 155 lbs.

I am so pleased with my nightgown. The fabric is very soft and the fit is true to size. The length is perfect too falling just below the knee.
I hope a long sleeve version will be coming in the fall.

Very nice, soft gown. Washes beautifully. I would like all nightgowns to be longer though, they ride up when you sleep and I'm short! 5 feet tall.
