Rated 3 out of 5 by MullerLight Too big on the hips
This top is a great color, nice fabric and well made - but it's cut is weird. It has a very pronounced hourglass shape and is meant for people with much bigger hips. This means I can't wear it with jeans or a skirt as it makes my hips look enormous. I will be taking it in along the sides below the waist.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Caryll Weird shape
I have been ordering Extra Small from LLBean for many years. However, I returned this item (Extra Small) because of the strange shape. It was tight across the bust and flared out at the hips. Never had this happen before.

Rated 3 out of 5 by NanaMae a bit long
this was not available in petite sizes but I ordered it anyway (small). It's awfully long so that I don't want to wear it with shorts but I'm using it for yoga with longer pants and it's working for that, but not what I had expected

Rated 3 out of 5 by Mombrown Too tight
I bought a medium and usually wear a 10-12. Wonderful fabric and good construction but too tight all over. I don't think this would fit me in an extra large. I don't like closely fitted clothes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BeansRegular Proportions a bit off
I own many solid tank tops, but this one called out to me as I love the feel of Tencel fabric.
I bought one in the Mallard Green in my usual LLBean size of XS. I have balanced proportions (bust 32C, hips 35.5 inches), and this top does not.
As mentioned by other reviewers, this is a fabulous fabric, with a soft and smooth feel (think knit silk here). It is not thin or see-thru as so many tops are now. But, the bust area is way to clingy, and the hip has a subtle flare, giving the top a slightly bell shape. It is long, but this helps with layering and giving better rear coverage when wearing slim-leg bottoms. Some of the pictures show a small gathering at the neckline, but this was not present on my top. The armholes do not gap and are not too low. I did need to wear a racerback bra with this top, but that may be only because the top was too tight in the bust. I wore this top once in steamy hot and humid weather, and it did keep me cool and relatively dry.
Although I rarely wear a S in LL Bean tops, I am exchanging my XS for the S, hoping that the bust will not then be too loose and the armholes too large. I also hope that the bottom flare is not exaggerated with the larger size.
This top is wonderful enough that it is worth trying the exchange. I would love to see the Indispensable Knits Line (Tencel travel clothes) made with this even softer and richer fabric. I would certainly welcome any other clothing items from tops to jackets to pants and dresses in this very superior fabric.

Rated 3 out of 5 by birdiegal very slim fitting
I love the way this has absolutely no gap around the neckline and armholes; however, the body of this regular L tank is much too long and slim for my 5'4" petite L self.
Many LLBean tops are offered in petite sizing, and I am very grateful for that. I really must resist trying anything else, because it never works - except for the pima cotton tees, which lose length over time and end up of petite proportions.

Rated 2 out of 5 by CADayHiker Odd fit
The chest was too tight and the waist too large. I returned it, as well as one in another color. I am disappointed, as it sounded perfect in the description.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Camille113 Great fit, extremely comfortable , nice colors
My husband picked this top out for me so I immediately tried it on. It was one of the most flattering tops, so I bought it in two colors. I wore it during a very hot and humid trip to Baltimore to see the NY Yankees. I did a lot of sweating that weekend and my tops were always dry and never needed ironing. I will buy it in the rest of the colors offered. Just try one on and tell me if you don't love it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Babyboomer50 Great fit!
I wasn't sure if I'd like this shirt when it arrived but once I put it on, I really loved it. The shirt has a great fit, wicks away sweat and keeps me cool. The material is a bit sheer so you'll need to choose the right bra.
