Rated 5 out of 5 by SusanLovesLLBean Perfect for Work or Weekends
I brought this sweater in Island Coral primarily for work to wear in place of a blazer. I received so many compliments on the color. It really is pretty and flattering. The cut and quality are exceptional.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CrazyCrocheter An LLBean Winner!
Absolutely loved the sweater right out of the bag. I am 5'4" and wear a 3X. I was looking for something to keep the cool air off my arms. Bingo! The fit is true-to-size. I bought the stone to go with everything. I will be buying another color soon. Thanks LLBean!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bluebearee Great fit
Just ordered this sweater. It fits my small frame perfectly. I am 5'0 110# 32A bust and ordered the XS Petite. I like tops and sweaters to fit to my waist so I am thrilled w the shortness. I wouldn't call it that heavy, in Maine this is standard sweater weight. I think I'm going to love it and already want another color!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cin1295 Continue To Love This Sweater!!
This is the second year that I continue to purchase this sweater!! I love everything about it. It has a soft feel to it but is heavy and warm. Each season I buy just about every new available color, and this spring is no exception. I love the lilac color, the coral, the aqua sea, and I have yet to purchase the Wisteria Blue. I also have the indigo and the yellow from last year. They are the perfect spring sweater!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by BusyIsBetter Review for Marled Cotton Cardigan - solid
Reviews are funny: one woman's one-star is another woman's favorite sweater. Too short? No problem! I love short cardigans and these are what I pull out of the closet everytime I need something casual throw on. They are deceptively heavy and warm, gorgeously made, and holding up after several washes. The screen images don't do these justice, the sweaters are beautiful! I'm frequently complimented on the two I have and asked if they are handmade (d'aww#. For me #5'6", 155lbs# a size Medium is roomy enough for layers underneath. And I've got my eyes peeled for new colors as they seem to change frequently. I have one in Fire and another in Saltwater Blue #my fave of the two#, and neither color is available anymore a few months later. So if you're going to order, grab the color you like when you see it!
In sum: one of my favorite sweaters ever, and my gateway purchase to LLBean fandom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tipper14 Very pleased.
I bought this sweater in the Jadite color, a nice early Spring color. I ordered my normal size and the fit is perfect. Sleeve length is fine. The sweater is heavier than I thought it would be but that is a good thing. I washed it according to instructions and it did not shrink. It appears to be well made.

I love this sweater as a substitute for a winter jacket. It is heavy, but that is why it works so well for what I wanted. The size is perfect for me in the small. I am very happy with the sweater and would order several if they had more colors I could use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Shopper495 Fit is a little too short (not too small)
I am 5'3" 115 lbs and wear a petite small in many manufacturers' styles. I am still getting used to L.L. Bean sizing but will probably stop buying petites and start buying misses' small. This cardigan falls at hip (not mid hip) which is short enough to begin with; but factor in that L.L. Bean petite is "really petite" compared to most manufacturers, and you end up with a sweater that barely falls to the hip and where the sleeves are short enough that they almost look like they were designed as 3/4 sleeve. And yet through the torso, the fit is beautiful. I will keep this item since I plan to wear it over a shirt, where having the cuffs show is not a problem. But unless you are really tiny, get the misses small and not the petite small.

Rated 5 out of 5 by itsKQ Ultimate Compliment
I have this sweater in light pink, from a few years back, and it's just lovely. It's very comfortable in 100% cotton with a nice heft to it, a beautiful color, and I feel great when I wear it. It looks like something that might have been lovingly hand made, and my "ultimate compliment" came when a friend asked me who had made my sweater. I've added another, the Island Coral color, to my wishlist - but what I'd REALLY love is a nice green, in a leafy or bay shade. (Are you listening LLBean?) Thanks for a lovely sweater!

Rated 5 out of 5 by filumena2 Marled Striped Cardigan..........
Checking over the reviews. This style sweater goes back a few years. And didn't take notice of it till this new color...Love the coral striped. Looking over the more than 500 reviews, I can say I'm late to the party...some say too small, some say too big and some say just right. The proof is in the trying on! My usual size in bean sweater is med....but this med is about 2 to 3 " wider than my other med bean sweaters...it's too big and a little too boxy when on...Have ordered down a size to a small.... Agree with others...it is difficult to button & unbutton... maybe the buttonholes will stretch with normal use! Aside from all that, it's really quite a nice sweater, as quite a few also agree...Have to say ...Another great garment from llbean!
