Rated 1 out of 5 by dixycup too much material at neck
You must have broad shoulders to make the material of shirt lay
flat at the neck. I first ordered medium. Reordered in small. It did not help at all. Still too much material at the neck line. I am sending my boatnecks back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JanniePB Flattering and comfy!
I've had this top for months now, and still love it as much as I did on Day 1. The top is very flattering for those of us who are older and experiencing the dreaded saggy necks! The sleeve length is also more flattering for those of us in this age group. The top is very comfortable to wear; bra straps don't show, and it washes and dries beautifully - with no shrinkage, and no wrinkles! I returned to buy another, but the color I want is not available in my size - disappointing, since I would like a dozen of these in my closet!

Rated 3 out of 5 by 1947er You need a long neck and broad shoulders for this
I love the material and the style and the colors! That is why I rated this as I did and would recommend it to others. BUT with the following proviso: I am sadly returning both shirts because I do not have the long neck required to successfully wear this shirt. The boatneck is cut very high and some of us do not have swan-like necks, and so the material kind of softly chokes us in front, as it rides up under our chins. And I keep pulling it dwon as it rides back up. All day long. Also, the boatneck is cut very wide across the front and tends to slide off one or the other shoulder (sometimes both) enough to expose bra straps. Some of us do not care for that look either. So - LLBean, please redesign this shirt so that the neckline is a little lower in front and a little less wide-cut all the way to the shoulders. Then it will be awesome!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Dagny Poor Fit, Neck Far Too Wide
I bought two of these tops, one white and one black, and was really pleased with the way they looked and the quality of the fabric when they arrived. However, the boat neck is so wide that there's no way to conceal bra straps, and the sleeves are really tight, which also makes the top fit poorly across the chest. I'm sending both of these back for a refund.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Styleshopper15 sleeve problem
I bought this shirt as I like the new style to go with different skirts. It fits fine except the sleeves are just snug enough as to be a distraction. I haven't washed it yet, in cold water, and dread w/o not it will shrink and be a waste of $25!!! Please have your manufacturers add just 1/2" width to the sleeve and pre-shrink the fabric or allow for shrinkage in the direction that the fabric shrinks. That shouldn't be too much to ask for a price of $25!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Blighty Very Attractive shirt
I was not sure I could wear the boatneck of this shirt as I have "Victorian" narrow shoulders but as luck would have it they make my shoulders look wider! Yeah! I love the fit of this shirt and the elbow sleeves are such a plus.

Love the material, however, the neckline is cut to wide - bra straps show. Would not buy again for this reason.

I ordered the square boatneck pullover in bright plum heather, petite. The color is lovely, the neck lays nicely, it's a perfect length and the sleeve length is nice for a little arm coverage. After laundering, nothing changed. Hard to find that combination. Thanks, L.L. Bean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by xokensie1 Stylish tee
I really like this tee, it is more stylish than just a plain tee. The material is soft and comfortable yet has some structure to it. As description states slightly fitted, but in a good way. The sizing is true to form
