Rated 5 out of 5áby SanDiegoSusan Love this Sweater
I ordered this sweater in blue for my mother last year on her 91st birthday and she loved it so much that I thought I'd treat myself and get one, too. My solid cream color sweater (Petite XS) arrived today and I LOVE it. It is so well-made, pretty, and flattering. The fit is perfect (5'2" 107 lbs) and I can't wait to wear it. The length of the sleeves and body hit just right. I prefer zippers to buttons, especially as my hands get older! It's so nice to have petite styles on the LLBean website and I know they will always fit well and look good. The weight of the cotton is just warm enough for our San Diego weather, but I'm sure it will be great for traveling in colder climates, as well. Good Job, LLBean!!!

Rated 5 out of 5áby IndianaMomTaxi DO Order this wonderfully heavy Zip Cable Cardigan
Quality! You will not be disappointed (unless your wanting a thin sweater). I have been afraid to order LLB because I am a plus size but I am pleasantly surprised. This is my first order - Black Zip cable cardigan sweater. The 3X does not run small, like some others. I am going to exchange mine for a smaller size. If you are on the fence about your order and have questions Chat with customer service a bit and Go For It! Hopefully you will Chat with the VERY helpful and knowledgeable Stacey. You have a New and Happy customer LLB (stolen from one of your competitors,lol)!

Rated 3 out of 5áby mommycozy Warm and snug but quite short and boxy
This style is quite boxy and not flattering as it does not hug the waist. I would also prefer this cardigan with pockets. It is probably best layered with a camisole.

Rated 4 out of 5áby TravelerAnn What's up with the color selection?
I have this sweater in a royal/sky blue and am very pleased with it. I'd love to buy a couple more, but the colors are AWFUL. How about Navy, or Kelly Green, L.L. Bean?
Overall, this is a sturdy sweater that looks good with jeans. I like bulky, square-cut sweaters and this fits the bill!

Rated 5 out of 5áby madreuno Finally!
This is a well made quality sweater. Finally, there is a sweater in a shorter length - which is so hard to find. I have purchased this sweater in four different colors. Usually I wear it with a matching mock turtleneck, but works ok with just a t-shirt. It's warm, comfortable, and of the highest quality. Washes well.

Very plain, pale, gray, short sweater. Disappointing.
"Aqua Teal" is a lovely summer color...also, too short for me.[5'8"]

Rated 4 out of 5áby Consumerista Nice, but boxy
Have been very happy with the last few cardigans I've ordered, but this one, not so much. The reason is the length, which seems disproportionately short; I'd describe it as high-hip rather than hip-length. I'm 5'4" and a size 6, and although the body of this sweater in size small is actually a bit roomier than the last few sweaters I've received, the shortish length makes it seem boxy. A longer length would have been more flattering. Very nice quality, but disappointing proportions.

Rated 4 out of 5áby weatherlover IT'LL BE WARM!
I ordered the gray heather zippered sweater in Petite size Large. I'm short, but I need the large size because of my chest. I like the shortness of the sweater because I am short, but I was VERY surprised at the length of the sleeves. They were long for a petite size. (I even checked the label to be sure they sent a petite size. ) I've NEVER had this before from LL Bean; and I order quite a lot petite sized clothing from them. This sweater is thicker than I thought, but it's ok. It would be more ok if I didn't have this bulk at the end of my arms - having to roll up the sleeves. I'm not sure yet if I'm going to send it back. I am a little disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5áby 10191baby Way too short!
Totally disappointed in this purchase. Wish I would've read all the reviews. This sweater fits right at the waist, right at the top of my jeans, almost like a crop top. Not at all what I was looking for. Unfortunately I will be returning both of the sweaters I purchased.

Rated 2 out of 5áby WestervilleShopper Not that flattering
I got this in a petite. The sweater seems close fitting and cropped. I also think for the overall scale of the sweater the cables are too large. Be careful of the colors too. I got a rose and I should have thought about that more. Sometimes the non-neutral colors are not what you bargained for when they arrive from UPS.
