Rated 5 out of 5 by WestervilleShopper Fabric great for the heat
I am 5'4" and 160-plus pounds. I ordered XL, and I may have been able to go with L. But I like the loose fit and a form fitted look would probably not be ideal for me. The top is a little long but nice. I really like the Indigo so much. I needed it for wearing under a casual suit jacket. The other colors don't appeal to me much - just love navy in summer. The fabric is really nice in the heat. I paired this with the basic wrinkle free twill skirt from Bean, and it looks casual and current.

Rated 4 out of 5 by katetrek Nice lightweight summer tee
I am super picky. Recently I bought 2 different Bean tees: the supima V-neck and the West End. Of the two, I prefer the West End. I am a fairly fit 64 year old with a C-cup bust and a smaller upper chest; 5'7" tall and 135 pounds. Most t-shirts leave me with a lot of baggy saggy fabric in the upper chest. This was the case with the supima shirt, but the West End fit great. It was also a tad longer, which is a definite plus if you are a fuller figure in the chest area. The fabric weight of the West End is definitely light; it's great for summer, but I prefer to wear a sport tank underneath because -- except for at-home wear -- the fabric reveals too much (unless you are my daughter who is a string bean).
My only complaint -- and yes, I'm picky -- is the shape of the sleeve. It isn't a cap, but the cut of the lower sleeve toward the arm pit is pretty severe. I find this to be pretty uncomfortable because I'm aware of the rubbing and chafing especially when doing athletic activities. (Perhaps on women with smaller bust sizes this wouldn't be an issue.) On the other hand, it's flattering. Much more so than the supima V-neck.
So...overall I give this 4 stars. I just ordered 3 more and hope I can get used to the "armpit" sleeve. For the sake of fashion, I'll suffer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AnnieBanannie Great for a slender woman
I wish I could wear this shirt!! Alas, it would have been a knock-out on me 30 years and 25 lbs ago. I clearly didn't read the description. As described, it is form fitting. It's clingy, too, and shows every bulge. It is also quite low cut. I'm giving it 5 stars because it would be gorgeous on the right figure. It's just not for my shape and age group.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Fitand40 Love this tee!
I have about 5 of these short-sleeve tees and the colors are very pretty. I also love the fit. I am 5'8" and 140 lbs, and I order a large. I have a long torso and a 36B bra size. I think the v-neck is stylish and attractive. I am ordering more now. Keep making these in an array of feminine colors, and I will keep buying them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by KatyT Fitted well made tee shirt
This is not the typical LL bean loose fitting tee shirt. I usually order small or extra small just to get a feminine fit. West End tees are true to size and comfortable. If you feel it's too fitted, just pull it out slightly. The tee holds it shape all day. I ordered the heather blue. I ordered a small, I'm a 36C. The length hits the top of my hip, I'm 5'6"', short waisted. The vee may be a little too low for some, but I think it's fine. My bra doesn't show.

Rated 4 out of 5 by AOPi59 Polka Dot Fitted Tee
After ordering this shirt, I read a review stating that the material was paper thin; granted it isn't quite as heavy as the pima cotton but certainly not paper thin. It's fine for the hot summer heat. I'm glad I ordered and I'm not disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by UpstateNYArtist Love this tee!
I have about 10 of these tees in short and 3/4 length sleeves! I really like the lightweight quality of the fabric. It is not thick and bulky like some other tees. The neckline is nice for summer. I do not find it low at all like some of the other reviews but find that it adds some style! I would love to see even more colors!

Rated 5 out of 5 by BBchilake Great V-neck and flattering
I haven't shopped at L.L. Bean in year and years...but went into a new shop at our local mall. I bought this T-shirt and love it so much I'm ordering more online. I'm about 150 pounds, 34DD and the medium is a very flattering fit, but not clingy and the V-neck is sexy. Just the right depth to the V-cut.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hello7 Nice material
This tee is made of a nice, light material and the coral rose is a subtle color. It's fitted, not loose and can be dressed up or down, even with its simple design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by VTCSGirl Perfect length!
It fits perfectly! I have a long torso, so I often find shirts either too short or not fitted enough. This is my new favorite. It's also made from a quality material that has retained its original size and color through several washes. It isn't made from a thin material, so it doesn't require wearing a camisole underneath. I have since bought this same shirt in the remainder of available colors.
