Rated 5 out of 5 by fuuryfriends Comfortable and delicate looking
I wore this shirt immediately...love the way it fits and the feminine feel and look of the material and style. Have not washed it yet....but I have bought many LLBean clothes so I have no doubt it will wash well. Love thecolor too!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Sacramento Cute top, good fit, flawed fabric!
I was looking forward to wearing this top throughout the spring and summer, but had to return it because of fabric flaws across the left side of the bodice. I thought the white color would be cool in our hot California temps, and the eyelet breezy. I have to say that it fit well and I liked the styling, so I gave it 2 stars. The flaws looked like old stains that someone hadn't been able to get out. Otherwise it was a cute top. If you get one with no fabric flaws, then you're in luck.

Rated 2 out of 5 by jbb122090 Disappointing
It looked a LOT better in the picture than on my body! The fit is a bit strange. The neckline is too wide, and the front "pooches out" and makes me look about four months pregnant. I loved the fabric, but I'm returning the "popover."

I love these tops. I ordered one in the white, and in mallard. The white is a bit see through, but with the tank, I ordered, it will be perfect. The Mallard color is absolutely gorgeous. It is such a nice, deep, rich color. I did think the length was a bit long. However, I love the "shirt-tail" type hem. When it is warm, I can just roll the sleeves up and it will still be perfect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by nightgale Large lady, but not preggers
I'm a size extra-large and so the slightly flowing style works in my favor. This is just the loose but refined style I need.
I looked at some other eyelet shirts this season, and LLBean's has some peculiar pluses and minuses. Obviously for you thin types, you don't need a long tunic with a draped quality. But for we bigger gals, this is a great asset.
The cut is a tunic, it's not voluminous. I like the long, easy length. I like the relaxed sleeves with cute bands. They come to my wrists (I'm tired of everything 3/4 lately). The scoop neck instead of a tailored collar is soft, and allows for any necklace or scarf.
An oddity is the bib. This shirt would look like a normal big style, without the strange inset on the chest. I can't see how that adds to the fashion.
The pastel colors are excellent and there should be more, maybe pink as well as a black. L.L. Bean has a very hard time getting colors right, many are just slightly goofy or "off". 3 of these are very nice, aqua, apricot and white.
Finally, the quality is excellent. I hope to see more styles for mature women, and not all ultra fitted triathlete stuff.

Rated 2 out of 5 by llbeanershopaholic "Is that a maternity shirt??"
The positive: beautiful color options, love the light apricot-perfect color!
The negative: The style is atrocious. I put it on and it made me look frumpy and about 20 pounds heavier. I had ordered a medium, I'm 5'6" and wear a size 12, so ok, I'm a bit pudgy, but the style of this shirt was NOT attractive. My husband asked me in complete innocence, "Oh, is that a maternity shirt?"
I am sending it back sadly because I loved the color. Come up with a different style shirt in the same color options and I'll buy it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lynne97 Pretty but sleeves run long
A very pretty and feminine top---the sort of thing I will wear with a skirt to church or use to dress up a pair of jeans for casual parties. I did have to shorten the sleeves, too long and not the type you can roll up.

Rated 3 out of 5 by emmykate Not a good fit
I have been having a hard time finding tops that fit. I ordered a larger and an extra large to see which one would fit the best. The large fit but was too long. I have never noticed that you had Petites because I never order Petites but I will send these back and see if the petite will fit better.

I loved this shirt at first. the colors are gorgeous, I bought all of them.. the fabric is wonderful with a great feel and weight, then someone asked me if I was expecting. ugh, if it lay flat in the front it would be great but those pin tucks make the belly stick out. darn.. sooo close.
