Rated 5 out of 5 by NHGlove Good quality for a decent price
I ordered several sweaters, some of them identical, in my most recent LL Bean order, all of which will have to go back. This cardigan is included.
It's a nice cardigan and the color I chose, Brick Rose, was lovely. I had planned on wearing it with a white tank top because I get heated easily and then, if it was really cold, I figured I'd change to wearing my white long-sleeved LL Bean crew neck shirt.
My problem with this, and all the things I ordered, was that I wasn't aware of just how large my derriere had become. This did have a tendency to cling to it, and it wasn't a pretty sight.
One thing I would have changed on it, although it wouldn't have been a deal breaker, was that I prefer a sweater that has the ribbon finishing on the front, on the inside, not the outside of the sweater. It's a personal choice.
It was well made, fit me well in an XL, and could I shave off a few feet - no, I jest - inches of my backside, I would have kept it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NColoradoLLBeanShopper One of my favorite sweaters
I LOVE this sweater. It's a nice medium weight and very nice looking. It's long, which I like, and the pattern on the front is very classy! This might not work for you if you are really hippy, but who knows. I will probably get this in another color, as it looks great with jeans, but would look nice with a dressy pair of pants as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JenBrit The color is not what I expected
This is a beautiful cardigan. I ordered the Brick Rose color, which appears a to be a deep pink in the image. However it's more orange than pink. I am keeping it, because it is well-made and the size is true, but I was hoping to wear it with light pink T shirts and blouses, and it won't look good with those. For this reason I only give it 4 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NHflowergardener Perfect weight for Autumn
It is truly wonderful to receive a catalog item that is even better than you imagined. I just received this today and I am quite pleased. The green marled color and pattern is gorgeous. It is so soft for 100% cotton and the weight is perfect for our autumn weather here in NH. I look forward to wearing it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Scout72 My new favorite!
Beautiful sweater. I love the longer length, the color is beautiful (twilight), the weight is nice (not bulky), and it's very soft. I washed it and laid flat to dry, and it held it's shape very nicely. Size large fits true to size (I'm 5'7", 165 lb). Very happy with this sweater!!

Dear LL Bean: Thank you for covering my derriere. I wish you offered more sweaters in this length.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CoastalCTShopper Beautiful Sweater!
This sweater is really gorgeous. It is well-made and has beautiful details. The fit is great. I ordered a small, but XS would have been fine for a more flattering fit. I always order larger because I hate when things are too tight. I haven't washed this yet, but I would be careful with drying it so you don't shrink it. I would say it runs true to size, and is not roomy or bulky at all. If you want to wear a turtleneck under it, you might fit a thin one. I would recommend this sweater and would re-purchase in other colors.

This is the sweater I've been waiting for. I ordered it in green. It's a beautiful color and the pattern is really nice. It fits well and it's long enough to cover my hips. The pockets are great. I really look forward to wearing this when the weather cools off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SoPoGalBW Best Cardigan Ever
This is the best cardigan ever-Bean's or otherwise. It is soft, but holds shape, not itchy, fits perfectly in arm length & where it falls around hip. I'm 5'5" and got the XL. I ordered the Moss shade & will be ordering another one soon. One word: flattering.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Cardigan CardiganReview
The sweater was so soft and beautifully made! Unfortunately, it was way too long! From the pictures I was not expecting a sweater several inches below my hips. I have returned it and have not decided whether to try a petite size. I don't where petite sizes, so I'm not sure that will help.
