Rated 5 out of 5 by wordygram I love it...
I bought this is red stripe, want the blue, also, but alas! All gone!
I purchased a size up from my normal size after reading the reviews. I love the fit, the neckline, the sleeve length, and the length of the tee itself. Haven't washed it yet, but as I am most careful in the drying of my shirts, I don't anticipate a problem.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Shopper68 Shrinks
I purchased this top in early summer for my elderly Mother in women's size small. She lives in an assisted living facility. The top's fit was a bit large, but I figured it would shrink some in the dryer. It looked quite nice on her. Now two months later, the top has shrunk so much it is unwearable. It shrank in every direction. The surprise is she owns similar LLBean tops that have been washed/dried many, many times and are still the same size as when purchased years ago. LLBean's once consistent, top quality clothing is a thing of the past it seems. I know this garment can be returned, but it is very aggravating to have clothing shrink even a little.

I must be one of the people whose body type works with this top, because it is one of the most flattering tops I've ever owned. I can see the neckline not working if you have very narrow shoulders, but it is great on my average ones. I'm fairly busty and like tops to be a little loose for camouflage, but not baggy. This one is perfect.

Rated 3 out of 5 by CindiLC Wonderful t-shirt
I really like the weight of the fabric, you can tell it isn't cheap. And I LOVE the length of the sleeves.They are perfect for older women whose arms aren't so pretty any longer. The sleeves are really flattering. My only challenge with this shirt is the length. Hip length is fine for some women, but not all. I wish it was a tunic. Then this would be a perfect shirt. Change the length to tunic length and I will buy all the colors.

Rated 4 out of 5 by lovethebirds Lovely top if the style suits
I was so pleased when I received my order, the knit is lovely, super soft and thick and I love the dark cranberry/cream color. I was so upset when I tried it on and found that the neckline just doesn't work for me because of my neck and bone structure. I knew that I would never feel comfortable wearing it so very reluctantly I will be returning it. If only LLB offered this stripe knit in a standard crew neck top - anyone listening LLB?

Rated 2 out of 5 by Togs Not Bean's usual fit
Great looking shirt - just doesn't fit right. I'd say more than "slightly fitted". Ordered my usual LLBean size and this just doesn't cut it. Square cut neck is too wide to conceal bra straps as well. A definite "miss" on this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Whitters2 Good Quality but Boxy Fit
I'm giving this 5 stars because this shirt is high quality and I love the style of the shoulders. I'm usually a size 6/8 and ordered a Medium, which fits very well in my shoulders, arms, and bust, but is otherwise very boxy. I will have to take it in a couple inches on each side near my waist.

I purchased the blue top first and loved it. It was perfect so I ordered 2 more, oatmeal and peony. The peony was on backorder, but oatmeal came 2 days ago. It fits NOTHING like the blue one. My bra straps show. I tried it on with 3 different bras and they showed with all 3, so I lined the 2 up and sure enough, the shoulder inserts on the oatmeal are sewn a half inch further toward outside than they are on the blue. I have cacelled the backorder on the peony. I am getting very tired of paying return postage due to lack of quality control on the part of llbean. If they don't fix the problem they are going to lose a good customer

Rated 4 out of 5 by HoustonCajun Very nice
The bright plum heather color is very pretty. I will keep this tee shirt, but will not order additional colors because my bra straps show. Ladies with broader shoulders than mine may not encounter this problem. I tried to avoid the problem by ordering the petite small rather than my usual regular small. My solution did not work. Too bad!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Golani weird fit
I needed a slightly dressier Tee, so ordered this in my usual size -- which is intended to fit generously since I hate tight shirts, and hey -- if there's a little shrinkage, I should still be OK. Not this shirt. It was oddly tight across the top of the shirt right out of the bag. Seemed more like a design/cut issue than overall size. Gave it away to charity.
