Rated 3 out of 5 by LuvsBubbly Too long & too lightweight for a fall sweater
The tiny amount of cashmere in this garment adds nothing at all to its warmth or heft (though maybe it did add to the price!). I was looking for a layer with some substance to it that would keep me warm in cooler weather. This doesn't do it. I don't know if the fit would've been better for me if I'd been able to buy it in a Petite size (it didn't come in Petite), but the overall length was much too long & there was no shape to it, so it merely looked big & baggy on me. I sent it back.

Rated 2 out of 5 by FrequenLLBeanShopper too long
purchased two of the Cotton/Cashmere Sweater, Waffle Pullover. They feel soft and look wonderful in the picture. However after wearing it one day the sweater stretched making the sweater hang to below my hips. I wish it was available in petite as the matching hoodie is available in petite. I am disappointed that it is only available in the misses length.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MermaidMoeNJ It's a keeper
I ordered a Small. I wear a 34B. The top fits perfectly, except for the arm length. The arm length is short by 1 inch. The cuff does not meet my wrist. Arm pit to cuff measures 18". Shoulder to cuff measures 22". Reasonable quality. Soft. I would order another one in red if Bean had my size in stock. I would not pay anymore for then the retail price for this top.

Rated 4 out of 5 by shopdrone Should have looked at picture more closely
I had this in mind for a somewhat warm top, and when it arrived the neckline is kind of scooped and I expected it to be more crew neck. The picture shows this - but somehow I missed it - so when it arrived, although I liked it - I would have to wear another top or turtleneck under it for fall/winter and that's not what I had in mind. Material is very soft and it's a beautiful green, but not what I wanted.

Rated 3 out of 5 by dogdocCT Sleeves way too short
Loved the fit of the medium, but the sleeves are" bracelet" length on me, obviously not appropriate for this style. They were so short I rechecked the listing to make sure they weren't 3/4 sleeves... The large was gigantic on me and the sleeves are barely long enough. Great if you have short arms. For that, I give 3 stars.

Rated 3 out of 5 by EgansMom Not Quite Right For Me
I ordered this in the cinnamon, but returned it. It was more transparent than I would want when spending money for a quality item. It was also less fitted than I hoped for. It did seem to be of a nice quality and feel, and the color was great for Fall. Just not exactly what I expected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by agatha2 PERFECT!!!
I loved these the minute I saw them on line. A great style and fit up grade. I bought all four of them because I knew I had shirts/pants etc. in my closet that would go nicely with them all. I'm 5'4" and weight 145 lbs. [and am large busted] so purchased the large because I planned to wear them layered [I like things loose not snug]. Perfect fit for me. The colors are very pretty and rich looking. I wasn't disappointed in any color. They also hang [on me] just right on the hip...not too short or too long. I hope you try one....I can't believe you'll be disappointed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by filumena2 Cotton Cashmere Waffle Sweaters.............
This years crop of cotton cashmere sweaters have a new design. They are sleeker & sportier, with raglan sleeves & a waffle torso. The Twilight is a a lovely darker, rich shade of turquoise than as shown on line. The Flag Blue heather is a nice periwinkle. As for the fit....it's true to your size. The only hesitation & reason for only 4 stars is that not really sure if the waffle will stand up to normal wear ie getting the waffle front pulled by various things, again ie, a sharp object, picking up a pet & getting their nails caught, a charm bracelet, etc. You get the idea..... I have several waffle henleys, I use for around the house, under the french sailor zipped tops& as nite shirts, very comfy but they do look a little shopworn, as they say. Guess the test is how well they perform. They have to because it's another great garment from llbean!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Gertie2003 Cozy with Character
I don't know if anyone else had this issue, but I want to report when I received my sweater, it smelled musty/like it had already been worn. I washed it in tepid water w/soap and let it air dry and fortunately it did lose it's "character". I have worn it briefly and it is cozy, I plan to use it to lounge in or on those casual cooler fall weekends. It has shape, but I went a size up because I like extra room for layering. It will be a go to sweater through the fall and winter seasons for years to come.
