Rated 5 out of 5 by LadyHiker101 Very flattering, comfortable summer weight
I have worn this sweater on several occasions and have received multiple compliments each time. For a night out, I dress it up with several extra long, gold colored chains mixed with pearls--still casual but stunning. It is warm enough, even on a San Francisco summer's chilly eve, not to need a jacket, yet light enough to "feel summer." The fabric is soft and feminine causing the garment to drape in a most flattering way.

I ordered the sweater in the soft, orange-melon color., Beyond the gorgeous color, the drape on this sweater and softness is just ideal for Spring. As a change from the 3/4 sleeves found often this time of year, I like the full, long length sleeve for the Spring days that are mild but not warm. I ordered the XS and it is well fitting on my long torso. The sleeves are also generous in their length which I appreciate. Nothing looks worse than short above the wrist bone long sleeve products that are supposed to cover.
Normally, I am a cardigan person but I chose this product for its versatility. It exposes my collar bone, femininely, without too much of a plunge, if I wore it alone. Additionally, it can be worn for layering with a scarf, cami, a tank or blouse and look just as sophisticated and polished.
No matter how you choose to wear it, the compliments will come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by vt8hrt Flattering sweater
I ordered the coral and navy stripe design of this sweater and just love it! The fit is perfect--slightly contoured, like a women's body, not boxy like some sweaters seem to be. The feel is so soft, smooth and comfortable. I really love the v-neck and the stripe design with the splash of coral gives it interest--which I really like; I get tired of solid colors. It could easily be dressed up or down. Overall a very flattering piece.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bookgarden Love it!
This is a winner. I love everything about it. It is a very nice fit. Not too tight, not too loose, nice deep V neck without showing too much, very soft, and I love the pink color. The color is very unique and I don't have anything else in this color. I usually wear a M in LL Bean sweaters and that is what I ordered. As long as the sleeves don't shrink in the wash it is perfect. I only wish it were available in more colors. I have a curvy figure with a small waist and broad shoulders. This sweater is neither too loose nor too tight in any area.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Up2noGood Nice material
I'm 5'2' - ordered medium in the dusky pink. It feels a bit wide but really super comfortable and soft, length is fine. The colour will look great with jeans or shorts. Nice weight - not too heavy.. I like it! Thanks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MountaineerMom Lovely, soft sweater
I purchased this v-neck sweater in the heather grey color and love the way it looks. It is a light grey color and the fabric is very soft. I wear it with a mock turtleneck underneath for the cold weather. It looks great with dark pants or jeans. It runs true to size. I purchased a Large and I am 140 pounds and wear a 14 shirt and it fits perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SAM1111 Soft and classy!
This sweater is very soft, comfortable, and looks sharp with dress pants, khaki's or jeans. I agree with a previous review, it does run a bit small. I'm 5'9 and usually order Large in LLBean sweaters. I like them a little big (not fitted) to wear a cami or a t-shirt under them too. I couldn't layer this sweater and feel comfortable as it has a smaller fit. If you plan to layer when wearing this sweater, I would go up a size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 2casual4nyc Nice color and fit
The pink color is the same as shown on the screen, and is a very pretty light coral/salmon and not a traditional pink. The color is what I wanted so I am pleased with that, along with the cotton/cashmere which is very comfortable. The petite sizing is true to size. My only complaint is that it is a fairly low V-neck, a little low for my taste but I will keep it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Wausau Best V neck ever!
This sweater is outstanding. So soft and comfortable. My only wish is that it came in more colors. As far as size, I would say it runs a tiny bit too small. I am 5"7 and I ordered a large because I like to wear a t-shirt underneath it. I almost wish I would have ordered an X large. Too late as I am already living in the ones I ordered. Really really well made. LL Bean thank you for the quality in everything you sell!

Rated 1 out of 5 by pjcwimp BUYER BEWARE
I liked the look and fit of this sweater, however I found a hole on the front near the bottom and returned it. Now I just received a replacement only to find yet another hole on the back near the bottom of the replacement sweater. It seems quality control is lacking if I am receiving 2 flawed sweaters back to back. I give up and will not reorder another one.
