Rated 4 out of 5 by Frenchy Neckline is too low!
The colors of the blue chambray sweater are much more vivid on line than they really are. On line the roses look like they are a brilliant blue. They are actually a much duller blue. The blue is also overshadowed by the green stems.
I do not like the low (scooped) neckline. I prefer a sweater that goes up to the bottom of my neck and keeps my neck warm.
The sweater is fitted and does not run big.
Overall, it is a nice, soft sweater, but it is overpriced.

Rated 5 out of 5 by knitknit Very nice cardigan
I ordered this fine gauge cardigan in black and was pleasantly surprised at how nice it is. Good quality at an excellent price point. I ordered a large and the sleeves are a good length and it has a fitted not boxy look.
I paired it with a pima sleeveless shell in black and it looks dressy especially when I wear it with perfect fit pants--very versatile and I can wear this shopping out to dinner, or to the theater.
Very pleased with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LovingWhatIs Lovely basic sweater
This is a high-quality, light-weight, super-soft sweater. It is good for travel because it packs so small. I have purchased 10 of these sweaters. The first one was a patterned sweater for my mother-in-law in size L. Then she wanted a basic black sweater so I bought a second for her, 4 more as gifts, and one for myself. I usually wear one size smaller than my mother-in-law so I ordered a M for myself. I thought the M was a good fit so I was surprised when I tried on a S that I had ordered for my daughter-in-law and it fit even better than the M. So then I ordered 3 more sweaters for myself in size S. I am 5' 7" and 138 lbs. and both the M and S look fine on me. In other words, you don't have to worry about the fit of this sweater. Any size you order is likely to be fine.
My only complaint is that the "white" sweater I bought is not a bright white. Instead it almost perfectly matches the antique white paint on my walls and it is only slightly lighter than the "winter white" sweater I bought last year. If something is sold as "white," then it should be a bright white. On the other hand, the black sweaters I bought are a nice dark true black.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lori9822 Beautiful Color....Great Fit!!!
I purchased the Sun solid color in Large. The fit was perfect and looked great. I had several compliments. The color is a nice yellow...not too bright, not too pale. The sale price was a bonus! I hope to purchase more of these in the future. This sweater is definitely a winner!

Rated 4 out of 5 by discgolfer Lovely, but too small
I just received this sweater and although beautiful and the color was just right, sadly it's too small. I read the other reviews before purchasing and thought a small would fit being 5'4 and 125. This did not quite button around my chest.

I ordered the cardigan in gray. It's soft and appears well-made. But on my fuller figure it was not flattering. I would have preferred ordering one of the several other cardigans with more substance but, alas, none were offered in 1x that I prefer. I've noticed that the company used to have plus sizes in a lot more of their garments. They are missing the boat by not serving women like me who would be frequent shoppers. The boomers are aging and have money to spend. Not all of us are young, slim and willing to settle!
I sent the sweater back and now I'm hoping my feedback will be heeded.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Noregrets1 Different sizing
Love the colour and fabric of this sweater and I love the fit of the one that I had ordered previously, but this sweater, in the same size was much larger and longer. It wasn't a more "modern" cut, it was just oversized and looked dumpy. Sadly it will be returned. Disappointing because, again, I love the colour and the fabric.

Rated 5 out of 5 by boilerluv Love it lots!
This sweater is beautiful. Much prettier in person than in pictures, I think--so glad I chose this color. The background cranberry is perfect, and the greens are so pretty--almost shades of teal. The fabric is lovely and soft and the workmanship is fine. I get compliments when I wear it--love the compliments and also the way it feels on my skin. I think it is very true to size, as well. Have not washed it yet, but am hoping/assuming it will wash up as nicely as my other LL Bean purchases. It's really a lovely sweater and I'm delighted that I chose it. When I put it on and look in the mirror, it makes me smile inside. Thanks, LL Bean, for a terrific addition to my fall/winter wardrobe!

Rated 2 out of 5 by EnergeticGrandma Fine-Gauge Cardigan Floral is faded looking
I was so disappointed when I received my order and found that the blue floral was so drab compared to the pretty, vibrant colors in the picture. I had ordered this for a Christmas gift and it looked so cheap I immediately returned it. Still waiting for my credit. I have a lot of Bean sweaters and have loved them all up until now. I wouldn't even want to buy this one if it was on sale.
