Rated 5 out of 5 by pdxtraveler Flattering and comfy
I absolutely love these shirts. They are flattering, especially with the ruching at the chest and the gentle gathers at the shoulders. Very lightweight and perfect for travel to warm climates.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Jericho Skimpy tee
I was looking forward to adding these tees to my summer wardrobe because of the cute patterns but sadly had to send them back. I ordered a Large (I take a Medium or Large, depending on the item with LL Bean) because of the "slightly fitted" description. I am a size 10/12 and have a 36" chest and these tees were too snug in the chest. I would describe them as "very fitted".

Rated 5 out of 5 by ellebee Perfect active top!!
Very breathable, flattering and comfortable top. I have already bought two, probably more in the future. The sizing chart suggested a size S for me but I was swimming in it, XS was the perfect fit. I made the mistake of not reading the care instructions on the first shirt I bought and when I put it in the dryer it began to pill. Lesson learned, I always do gentle wash and hang dry now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by happytrailsgirl I'm taking all 4 colors with me!
This is a comfortable and cute little shirt. It's stylish and flirty, goes great with shorts, skirts and jeans. I'm taking all four colors with me to Europe this summer.
So happy to have found these. They will be the perfect travel companions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BeansRegular Check size before you purchase this top
I am always looking for cool, non-clingy tops for working out and just tolerating summer heat. This top looked lovely, and I followed the advice of many of the reviewers, and went with the smaller of my 2 possible sizes.
That did NOT work out for me, and I wanted to mention this since I did not read any reviews that mentioned the fit of the XS vs. the XXS. Some of LLBean's XS active tops can run loose on me, and following the size chart I fell right between XXS and XS (5'7", 118lb, 32C, thin with a slightly curvy rear). I ordered 2 colors in the XXS and both fit the same way. With a sports bra under, the bust was too tight, the shoulders were too small (I do have wide shoulders from years of working out), and the hip area was tight and clingy (not a good look). The fabric is super-light and super-soft and should function very well for both travel and active wear, as well as everyday use. The V-neck is just right, not too low. I am exchanging both for the XS, and am planning to order one of the fall colors too. Maybe in the smaller sizes, this top does not run a bit loose, as other reviewers mentioned for the larger sizes.
I want to say that I am happy that LLBean has widened its size range for women with the inclusion of the XXS size. I have been an LLBean customer for years, and unlike other retailers that have vanity sized me from a 4-6 to a 0, they have only slightly adjusted sizes to accommodate current body proportions. I started out with LLBean's size 4 (20+ years ago) and still wear a size 4 now (same weight) with a size 2 in the Signature line. It is apparent that I am a true XS at LLBean, but I appreciate reading all the reviews which help me greatly in chosing sizes (I find it helps if people include their height/weight).
Kudos to LLBean for advancing their technical active lines at affordable prices.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 7531 Always gets compliments!
Shirt washes well, is nice looking and roomy. I bought the larger size and it drapes well-not snug. The top stays wrinkle free and is great for traveling. It is very comfortable and has a classic look. Definitely a good buy. I find it is my 'go-to' top. I just may have to check out the other colors!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by ldshopper Great color
I was pleasantly surprised to find the XL to be a perfect fit. Garment is generous in size. I love the river blue color which is close to teal in color. Soft fabric suitable for working out or everyday wear. Good for travel - wrinkle free, lightweight and packs down to nothing. If between sizes, you might want to size down. Interesting print. Very feminine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NNNY comfortable in the heat
This top was comfortable as is, but when I was hiking in the Cinque Terre region of Italy, I was sweaty - very sweaty, but the shirt did not cling to me and it did not have telltale dark wet marks!

Rated 4 out of 5 by HappyTrails1 Lightweight, pretty
This tee is comfortable and attractive without being too "cute" or fussy. I am partial to small patterns and solids. It's a bit long, but the same length doesn't work for every body shape. It is a nice alternative to the traditional tee, more feminine. I bought the deep pink color hoping it could go with the plum skort. It's not a color match, but the pink and plum are still compatible. If you are looking for an exact match to the plum skort, you might be disappointed.
