Rated 4 out of 5 by SomeWhereOverTheRainbow Fits Small
Bought this in the Aqua Sky color along with an light aqua Pima Cotton sleeveless shell to wear under it. The colors are absolutely beautiful and it is so soft!
One problem is in my opinion, the sweater runs small. I should have read the reviews before I bought it, but I bought it in the store and came home, tried it on, then read the reviews. It pays to read the reviews before you buy an item, whether you buy it in the store or online.

I love the softness of the knit and the fact this sweater is cropped, slightly. Personally, I don't like long sweaters for the Spring-Summer months. This one is one of my go-to choices because the length is ideal to wear alone with jeans and it looks so darn cute! The multi-floral colors are pretty, too. Not too flashy but feminine and Spring in tone. I purchased a size XS and found that is was generous. My clothing fits properly and has the right drape, so I would say in this product, go according to your true size. It's a keeper!

Just received this harbinger of spring in the daylily colors. The fabric is soft and lovely, the fit is perfect, the colors bright and joyful. We are traveling to Europe soon and this is one of the essentials since it pack well and go with so many looks - from casual day time, to evenings over the basic black dress with a perfect silk scarf! Thank you, LL Bean.

Every season I seem to find one item that becomes my "go-to" outfit. This year, it is the blue and yellow floral cardigan -- maybe because it pairs so perfectly with denim AND stretch pants. I have pulled out all my solid yellow tees and am living in these jeans/tees/cardi outfits. It is also the perfect weight to be my cardi for our cross-country "road trip" this summer -- just hope I don't leave it somewhere! My one reservation about the sweater is that I notice the sleeves at the wrists are beginning to stretch out...and I have not washed it yet, so I do not know how it will launder. But as an all-around "go to" cardi for spring, it is as close to perfect as I have ever found.

I've passed on these floral cardigans until I saw this year's blue version. What a lovely sweater for spring. I can't wait to wear it---I bought the pima sleeveless shell in "sun" to go with it and I think it really complements the yellow in the sweater. I've got several of these cardigans in the solid colors and they wash really well----they don't shrink and they stay nice and soft. One of LLB's best.

Rated 2 out of 5 by tensails Wish it was longer
Just received my new washed periwinkle fine gauge cardigan in the mail today. The fabric is soft and the color is beautiful, but I was so sad to take it out of the package and realize it barely reached my waist! I'm 5' 7" but ordered an XS to fit the bust (plus I have narrow shoulders). I have another LL Bean cardigan, size S in my closet, and it is at least 2 inches longer. I will be returning this one, but I'm not sure yet if I want to take a gamble on ordering a size S. LL Bean, it would help if you could include length in the size chart, since this sweater definitely did NOT fall at the hip like the description says.

I purchased the navy with bright blue flowers for myself and the camel with pink flowers for my sister. We both usually wear small petite but the camel wasn't available in petite so I purchased regular small. It fit both of us perfectly. I recently ordered the navy in regular small and again the fit was perfect. This sweater seems to be somewhat shorter than most regular size small so I was quite happy with the fit. The color combinations are just beautiful. Love the light weight of this sweater. Would definitely recommend.

Beautiful cardigan; I so wanted it to work. But it is really not flattering at all. Please offer more fitted clothing! I don't want to look old and frumpy! As usual, the quality of LL Bean clothing is superb; the fit, not so much. I keep trying, but I'm starting to lose faith, sad to say.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cin1295 LOVE THIS SWEATER
Even though I have been shopping, very frequently, at Bean's for the past few years, I had always bypassed this sweater until this year. I really liked the colors in the "white" option so I purchased it and received it just today. Now I'm sorry that I didn't get them sooner. The feel of this sweater is just amazing! It is so soft and comfortable next to the skin. The colors of the white option sweater are just perfect for building a wardrobe with the French Blue flowers.
I am now looking for more colors in this sweater for spring as it is a lighter weight sweater.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PattyM Great sweater
I think this is a classic, wonderful addition to my wardrobe. I have 3 and am considering another. I don't understand some of the negative reviews, I actually checked to see if we were talking about the same item. My sweaters are true to size, not boxy, fit me very well. I am a medium petite. Every time I wear the sweaters I get some compliment. Quality is great too. I am dry cleaning mine because I want them to last a long time.
