Rated 5 out of 5 by kayaktime Super Soft
Bought this based on other reviews and I'm so glad I did I love the color and the fabric is soooo soft. It is the perfect weight for spring and early fall. The fit was also wonderful I bought the M. and it was not to tight or to loose I'm 5'5 135#. The Dark Taupe with blue grey stitching is really a great combo.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SRMRN Runs really large!!
I just received my lily pond hoodie, and it was huge! I ordered an XL, which I usually order in LL Bean tops for a little extra room, in case of shrinkage. It seemed like an XXL, and I am sending the XL back and ordering the Large. I ordered it in the medium gray, which is a nice color, and would highly recommend!

Rated 4 out of 5 by hones Love this - but thumb holes are useless for me
I already wrote a review here of this hoodie - which I love (there doesn't see to be a way to edit reviews??). I forgot to add that the thumbholes are useless for me... the sleeves are not nearly long enough for me to comfortably have my thumbs in the hole. And even if the sleeves were long enough, the thumbholes are too small. My arms are on the slightly long side - but only slightly. If you are petite, they make work for you. I love the hoodie anyway - but listen up, LL Bean... the arms have to be longer if you expect them to end at the knuckles!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by hones Nice shapely fit - runs a bit large
I am very pleased with this hoodie! The fabric is mid-weight, so not for when you want to be super warm, but perfect for my needs. I wear a size 10 and after trying both the medium and small, I decided to keep the small. It fits fairly close to the body without being skin tight. One thing about the cut of this particular hoodie is that it's not meant to be a loose, boxy fit. The medium was much looser on me but it just looked sloppy given the shaping and slightly longer length (whereas a shorter, boxier cut would look fine a little loose). I just lost 10 pounds, and I can say for sure that I would not have kept this at my prior weight - it would accentuate a "muffin top" too much! But now that my clothes are fitting me better, it really nicely shows off curves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CCJC Love this hoodie!
This is everything I expected it to be; a light weight hoodie that is stylish and slightly fitted. I ordered an XS regular and it fit perfectly (5'4" 120 lbs).
I love the color - icy gray. Just beautiful. I washed it before I wore it on the gentle cycle, low heat for drying and it came out beautifully. The textured look, both inside and out, gives this hoodie styling that is very attractive. Just love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by OSUfaninMichigan Women's Lily Pond Hoodie
I got this for my daughter-in-law for Christmas. She picked it out, the coral color, and asked for a small (I would have gotten her a medium, but we won't tell). She put it on the next day and it fit, and she loved it. She kept commenting on the softness of the fabric and how comfy it was. She washes most everything in cold water, so shrinkage shouldn't be an issue. I kind of want one for myself, but I really don't need one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by teathyme Great fitted hoodie
I bought this in the green and plan to get another in purple. It is more fitted and longer than usual which is great. I am 5 ft 1 and 114 pounds and bought the xs . This is probably the limit for this size. I have washed it but not put it in the dryer in case it shrinks. The pockets are a good size. I can put a Samsung Note phone in easily. I did end up sewing a couple of snaps on the pocket in case it fell out when walking/jogging. I hope llbean will think about adding a Velcro closure to the pockets of active wear with this in mind.

I ordered this jacket in taupe during one of L.L. Bean's site-wide sales to wear before and after yoga class. When it arrived, I thought it was okay but nothing special. Believe me, it has grown on me! I've found myself gravitating toward it whenever I want a snuggly, comfortable layer to sink into, and now it's my favorite fleece. The inside, with its checkered pattern, is soft and fuzzy, and that pattern is subtly apparent on the outside of the fabric, too, giving the jacket a unique appearance. I also appreciate the slightly longer length and the lack of pills after washing. In fact, I like this jacket so much that I ordered it in sea glass as well--a lovely, deep color. How about a dark gold for spring, Bean folks?

Rated 5 out of 5 by dumbidea Comfy and lovely aqua color
My purchase of XS Reg. fits my 5' frame and weight -100 lbs very well. I was surprised at the hoodie's long length, but I'm used to it now and it covers one's butt especially when wearing yoga or tight pants. The overall fit is slim and flattering.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MonMarie Nice looking
I love this item. The bottom is a little large but over all fits well. I like the style and my husband says it looks nice on me. I have been wearing it a lot and am thinking about purchasing another on in a different color.
