Rated 5 out of 5 by campernurse Great Maternity top
I wore this to visit my new grandson in Mississippi. My daughter saw mine and loved it. It packed well, washes wonderfully with NO ironing if you wash and hang to dry after smoothing the wrinkles while on the hanger. It dries quickly! I wore it on the plane with little wrinkling. True to size or maybe a tad bigger, I am 40D and ordered XL. I ordered one for her as she thought it would make a great dressier maternity shirt!

Rated 1 out of 5 by AlaskanLLBeanappreciator Did not work for me at all!
I ordered three given the appearance on line and the great reviews. How disappointing! The fit on me was terrible. The tapered back was too low for my frame and the fit overall was the kind of top one might try on in a store and then take it off right away because of poor fit. I am 5'4" and a bit overweight, carrying weight in my middle but not an apple. I have many LL Bean clothes that fit perfectly like the cardigan stitchworks sweater I am wearing right now. Darn.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Rarelywritereviews This top rocks
I am rarely Inspired to review an article of clothing but this top is a winner. The drape is ideal for a tunic, the gathering at the waist in the back provides the perfect shape and the fabric is so comfortable. I think it will require ironing, which I also normally avoid, but this top is worth it. Did order a size up.
Llbean, PLEASE consider making this top a part of your classic offerings. I would take 3 more colors in a heartbeat.

Rated 3 out of 5 by BeanieFromOhio I wanted to love it, but.......
I ordered two of these shirts.....one in a medium and one in a large, because I couldn't decide on a size based on the previous reviews. I thought the material and the colors were lovely, however the fit just did not work for me. I normally wear a medium, but depending on the cut of the shirt and the style I sometimes can wear a large. I am 5'4 1/2 and about 145 lbs. The medium fit wonderfully and I liked it very much except through the shoulder area. It seemed very snug and when I moved my arms forward (like if you had your hands on the wheel while driving) the material in the shoulder area and across the upper back was very tight. I felt very restricted and would be concerned about the stress on the seams. I tried on the large and it looked a tad baggy on me, and yet the shoulders still seemed very tight! If it had been bigger in the shoulder area I would have kept it since others had mentioned that there was a bit of shrinkage after washing. I returned both sadly. I do not have "linebacker" shoulders at all and usually don't have an issue with things being too tight in the shoulders and okay everywhere else. I think people with narrow shoulders would love this shirt.

Nice shirt, pretty pinkish color, very soft and comfortable at a great daily markdown price! I wear between a small and a medium, but the medium fits perfectly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by HowdidIgetthisold Great for Tall People
I had great hopes for this shirt, and I knew I'd love the fabric. I ordered a size up as recommended in other comments, and while the shirt fit well, I felt like it was too long to look nice on someone who is 5'3" tall. I actually wore it to a casual event and when I saw the photos, I realized that it was dumpy looking on me. Otherwise, it didn't disappoint!

I own 2 of these shirts in the steel blue and ledge in my regular size Large. I'm an apple shape (42-37-39, 138 lbs# and thought the back gathering would make the shirt too form-fitting in the front but it didn't. It camouflages my mid-section perfectly and even gives me the illusion of a waist.
Not only do I love the fit but the length is perfect #5' 1") and so is the breathability, comfort and softness of the fabric. Washes well on cold, gentle and dried for just a few minutes on low in the dryer to get the wrinkles out then hung to dry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BeansRegular Don't miss out on this cool and comfortable shirt
I love the feel of tencel (linen not so much) so I bought 2 of these lovely casual tops, in blue steel and ledge. When I tried them on I was amazed at the softness and beautiful drape of the fabric--no linen itchiness here at all. The soft waist level gathering in the back did not create any clinginess or peplum effect. The shirts ran true to size for my usual regular XS. The top has a classy appearance and functions in more dressy professional settings.
I wore one belted over a straight skirt to work and the other loose over slim capris for a casual dinner, and both looked appropriate. The fabric is also extremely light and breathable for even the hottest summer days, which I really appreciate since I do not tolerate heat very well. A quick machine wash and brief dryer spin to de-wrinkle had them ready to wear again (without the dreaded ironing!)
I am waiting to see if there will be new colors out this fall, as I would love to order this shirt in deeper fall colors too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MTOD So soft!
I love this shirt so much, I bought 2 of each color. It feels like wearing the softest t-shirt you own, but it looks really classy and flattering, and the material is really cool. I'm allergic to ironing, but as long as I pull it out of the dryer as soon as it's done and hang it up that's no problem.
