Rated 3 out of 5 by GrannieO Out of proportion
I suppose I will keep this top, but I am disappointed in it. The neck is big, the arms are long, and the bust area is tight. I just checked the size chart and it should fit me (1X). If it shrinks I'll really be in trouble! Even now, when it's new, the bust area is so tight that a special t-shirt bra would have to be worn to avoid a bad look.
I was taken by the color (pale yellow) which is so hard to find nowadays, but don't care for this item.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ClaredeLune Runs short in length
Love the cotton. Nice quality, very soft. Colors are nice. I ordered two. One came right away; the other was on order. When the first one came, it seemed to fit nicely, but after one washing, it shrunk in length. So if I reach up while wearing it, my stomach will be exposed. Second one came about a month later. I washing it but did not dry it, just to see if it would retain its length which was about 1" longer than the one that had shrunk. Nope. It shrunk in just the watching. So while I really love the fabric and feel it is excellent quality, I will probably return these two items.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HappyBeanCustomer58 comfortable, well-fitting shirt
I'm 62, 5'6", 195 lbs, size 1X or XL and this shirt fits me perfectly. It is hip length, covers my tummy, is roomy enough without being baggy, the sleeves come to my wrists, the Henley neckline is modest, the fabric is light enough for the spring warmth yet substantial enough for cooler spring days with a light jacket. I ordered this shirt in wisteria blue and lemon and love both colors, which are very pretty. They wash very well (warm water wash, tumble dry two or three minutes, hang to dry), no shrinkage. Another winner from L.L. Bean.

I am always looking for shorter tops but they are hard to find. This one is perfect. I am short waisted and find most Bean tops too long. I also like the shorter tops to wear under vests and jackets. Please keep making the Saturday shirts for shoppers like me. The rest of you shoppers have ample choices in longer styles. Thank you LL Bean!

Rated 5 out of 5 by judyonthego Love This Shirt
This shirt is wide and SHORT! I love it. I am short and have finally found the perfect shirt for my height. I realize it might be too short for anyone who is average height or tall, but for us little people it is perfect. Thank you so much for this shirt. It is now my favorite!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Smallred I love this!
For years I wore the short sleeved version of this shirt, but had to give it up as I no longer want to show my arms. Now, I can get the same terrific look and hide my old flabby arms! I'm back online to buy a 3rd one of these babies. Yes, they are shorter than most shirts (the picture and description make that clear) and that's what I like about them. I am just over 5' 4" and find this a great length for all types of pants - but especially those with wider legs where longer shirts make me look enormous. This length also works well with skirts.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Birdergirl99 Way too short
I'm regular height (5'5") and this is way too short. Makes for a weird look. Very disappointed as I loved my last season Henleys.

The fabric and colors are soft, but it looks like a cropped shirt on this average, middle aged women. I am returning it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by GailDonna Really wide
I liked the look of this Henley knit. The wisteria is lovely with the white and tan stripes. Unfortunately, I didn't realize that "relaxed" indicated such a wide shirt. I am going to return it.

Finally a shirt that fits. Love the shorter length, I'm 5ft 115lbs and the small is just right. Purchased one stripe and one solid. Fabric on the stripe shirt is much softer. Wish these shirts come in more color. Purple or lavender will be great. Please do not change the fit of this!!!
