Rated 3 out of 5 by OnlineBeanLover More fitted than others
I ordered this 3/4 sleeve shirt in Coral Rose XLG, having already bought a short-sleeve and 2 tank tops of West End Tees in this size which fit me okay. The cool slub fabric in the 3/4 sleeve was the same great fabric as the others, but the shirt was way more Coral than Rose, and it was too tight through the torso. Shoulders were fine--plenty of room--length was great, but the middle of the shirt was cut surprisingly slim, so I sent it back. This one will probably work well for a woman with an hour-glass figure. I look forward to wearing my tank tops and short-sleeve Vneck, but won't order this style again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by yourmajesty Mixed feelings
I didn't heed the reviews about the fit as some said it fit true to size, others said to order up. Believe me girls, order up is the correct assessment. I have mixed feelings about the westend tee. Coral rose is a good colour for me, but I think I could do better where the style is concerned. It's just another average tee shirt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by alicealice Coral Rose much lighter in person
I have quite a few of these shirts in this cut and the short sleeve. As others have said, order a size up and it will still be flattering, but not skin tight. The neckline is lovely, but not too deep for those of us who are perkier and could otherwise show more than we mean to.
I received Coral Rose today, and it is a couple of shades lighter than the swatch suggests. It's a bright, warm toned pink. It's not neon, and it's a pretty shade, but is not the deeper tone I was expecting.

I normally wear a medium to large Tee shirt but I could barely get the large on and could not possibly wear it. It runs very small. The fabric is quite sheer. The styling is very nice.Unfortunately it has to go back.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Nolafan Disappointed
I ordered this shirt in an ivory color expecting the usual excellent quality clothing that LLBean is famous for but instead received a thread bare t-shirt. I ordered the shirt in an ivory color and this color doesn't always provide coverage but this particular t-shirt is on the verge of being a sheer see through fabric. I am very disappointed but also surprised because I've never gotten a product from LLBean that I didn't absolutely love. And I've certainly never gotten one made with such cheap fabric. I take comfort in knowing that the store has an excellent return policy and that they care about customer satisfaction. On the positive side the shirt fit very well and was a flattering fit. LL Bean please keep up the quality clothing coming even if means you have to increase the price to do so.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ShelbyinCA Runs really small!
I was so happy to find a 3/4 sleeve top in lightweight cotton. I ordered 5 different colors and was very disappointed when I tried them on and couldn't even get my arms in the sleeves! I ordered my regular size Medium, but am going to exchange for an XL because I like the shirt otherwise. I sure hope I can find a size that fits...the colors, length and fabric are awesome!

Rated 5 out of 5 by AKgal85 Love this shirt!
I'm a fan of 3/4 sleeves, so this is a great find for me. The scoop neck is not indecently low, but great for wearing necklaces with. The slub texture adds a bit of visual interest, and I'm glad they've added more colors. I've bought it in green, red, grey, navy, and black. They're a great classic piece that's comfortable, affordable, and looks great with jeans as well as more formal pants.
This top does fit quite close to the body as advertised. I find it very flattering, but it's not for everyone.
I have noticed that on a few of the ones I bought, areas that look worn through have developed. Honestly, that won't dissuade me from buying more, because I like them so much. I'll just hang on to the receipt, because the great return/exchange policy will let me get new ones.

Rated 3 out of 5 by LJCTGC Note IT IS FITTED-my bad for not realizing
Very snug fitting--website does say that it is fitted, I just did not see it before ordering. I think it still runs small.
I order the WHITE. The printed label in the back is in peach and shows through. Also the neck is bound it peach on the inside-not shown this way on website--and that shows through. The "show through" would probably not be a problem in colors other than white.
Consider all of these things before you order
I LOVE the material that it is made with.
If I wanted fitted, I would order it in a color but ONE size up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by kkm9 Just wish you kept more more in stock.
Some of us run 'hot', meaning, we need cool (as is this great slub fabric) 3/4 sleeve T's. I'm one. I managed to get 3 colors, but they quickly run out in L and XL.
For next season, please widen range of darker, jewel colors that won't show boobies as do the lighter colors. AND, get more in stock to begin with so you don't run out before fall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bimmer An LL Bean favorite!
Just received my my West End Tee yesterday and I am in love with this shirt! Be forewarned--this is a fitted shirt, so if you like things a bit looser, this shirt would not be for you. Personally I find this fit exceptionally flattering. The tee has light-weight fabric that has a bit of a stretch to it and has a longer length which I love. The scoop neck is flattering without being too low. My only suggestion to LL Bean is to continue to provide this tee in more and different colors (including black). I will definitely be buying more of these shirts.
