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!

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.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TinaJM Favorite Hoodie Ever!
I love this hoodie. I bought it in coral and just came back and bought the other two colors. It's not boxy at all and just fitted enough to look feminine. It keeps me warm walking my doggies in the a.m. from about the low 50s (with a long sleeve shirt underneath) to the upper 60s. The thumb holes in the sleeve are nice for cooler mornings. It's pricey, but well worth it. I have washed my coral hoodie twice and it washes wonderfully and no pilling. These will be my "go-to" hoodies for quite some time.

Rated 3 out of 5 by sweatersavvy Not for me
The material and rich color of this hoodie were very nice, but the shape wasn't flattering. It seemed to run small, so I sent it back.

This hoodie is so cute! I got the coral, and it's very vibrant, which I like. I was worried I wouldn't like that it is part polyester, but it's very soft and comfy. It's seems to be good in the 60's and low 70's so far. I like that it's nice and long and has a nice shape - not too boxy, just slightly curved in at the waist. With the coral, the stitching doesn't stand out too much, which was a little bit of my worry with the green. I think I may still want to get the green at some point, though. I wish it also came in white. Overall, love it!
