Rated 5 out of 5 by Gem48 Love the Fit and the Colors!
I was wary after reading the reviews but bought three anyway in 3 colors...and I love them! They fit me great, compliment my figure in places needing it and obscuring my figure in places that don't need it.
The shoulders are more snug and the bottom more roomy which is very figure flattering for me. I bought the cream, wine and teal colors and they are all so pretty. I like the wide neck and didn't find it a problem at all. There are little black specs all over the top (heathered look) which adds nice texture to the overall look.
I was afraid it would shrink after washing and it didn't shrink much at all nor did it bleed in the wash. I'll be buying the rest of the colors for sure!

Rated 5 out of 5 by SeattleCommuter Look carefully at the picture
This shirt is okay, but the loose neckline makes it more like a shirt you'd wear as pajamas. Also, the body is loose, it's not like a typical fitted Henley. The sleeves are short -- more like 3/4 length but longer than that, yet no cuff or button. All in all, it adds up to a pajama-like, Mary-Jane, loose-fitting look. The picture is accurate, so look closer than I looked, and if this is the type top you want, you'll be very pleased with the quality and the fabric. I thought I was buying a Henley, but it's not, so I'm returning it, but it's a nice top that someone else may like very much. Runs true to size, I'm 5'4", 118 and a small was the right size.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Southerngal123 Cute Henley
Just received 3 of of these cute Henley shirts today: deep raspberry, classic navy, and deep turquoise. The colors are beautiful with the contrasting tweed material. I ordered my normal size medium and they fit great. I read many of the review that said the neck was too wide or cleavage too deep but that was not the case for me. I am 5'71/2 , 145, thin broad shoulders, curvy hips, 36A bust. I gave it 4 stars for the following reasons: The deep raspberry seem a little smaller in the waist; the classic navy smelled like someone may have worn it with a strong perfume; I am not sure I love the feel of the tweed, seems a bit rough. However, they wash beautifully...washed them on gentle with Woolite and dried on low for a few minutes with a dryer sheet, then hung to dry. (And the Oder/perfume smell is gone) Still a little rough for a 100% cotton shirt, but the tweed is what makes this Henley so Cute! And I got them on the 2-A-Day a Daily Markdown! Awesome!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by birdwatcher61 Disappointed in Fabric Quality
Disappointed in the lack of quality of this top. Cute style though. Fit is on the small side and feels skimpy. Biggest problem is the fabric which feels flimsy and rough. Doesn't feel good next to the skin.I will be returning this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LOLO2702 Wore it 3 days in a row while driving.
I am: 5' 8" tall, 172 lbs, 36D or 34DD, ordered a Medium
After washing this still falls just a little past the hip. Fabric didn't roll or twist after washing.
Nicely covers the abdomen.
Sleeve length is near/at the wrist for a tall person.
Is nicer looking than wearing a t-shirt.
The "heather" helps hide travel wrinkles from seat belts, etc.
P.S.: Might as well put on the same top when I won't see the same people each day, the top isn't compromised, and is entirely comfortable for driving and flights. ; )

Rated 1 out of 5 by happy2day Poor quality item.
I returned this item because the material was very flimsy and thin. It was supposed to be a small/petite, but was way too big. This item does not reflect the normal quality of L.L. Bean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lolosmom nice lightweight shirt
This is a nice, lightweight long sleeved shirt. It's a bit looser and longer than many knit shirts today, which you may or may not like, but for me it is a nice alternative and good with jeans or cords. I like the contrasting color of the buttons too.

Rated 3 out of 5 by blugreen C-
Deep turqouise color and texture.
Fabric too thin and light weight for a longsleeved top.
Sleeves taper too narrowly.at the wrist.
Fabric not warm enough to wear without layering.
Clingy fabric and fit not loose enough to layer under.
Layering over hides the tuck details of the shoulder.
I wish I had read the reviews before I ordered. I like it well enough to keep, but still disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Phaseolus Cheap. Unworthy of the OLD L.L. Bean
Shirt is cheaply made, thin material, flimsy. Made in China. I sent it back and asked for a refund.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ShowsSetters Nice material and pretty color
I purchased this as a Christmas gift for my niece, and haven't tried it on, so cannot comment about the fit. However, I love the color and material. I purchased the navy blue heather, and it's really pretty. Even with the heathery dots, the pin tucking shows well.
