Rated 3 out of 5 by CooneyGram It Shrinks!!!
I bought 4 of these shirts from the website when on sale. I normally take a size Large in LLB shirts so that is what I went with. I found the shirts to be quite large and not warm because they hung away from my body. It looked like a maternity top. I wore a tank tank under the first one. I decided to wait until I washed the first one before I exchanged the others for a size medium. Good thinking! The shirt did shrink significantly. I washed in cold water and dried at normal temp. It is now two inches shorter, an inch narrower and the sleeves are an inch shorter. Other than now being a bit snug in the armpits and the sleeves being slightly short, the shirt now fits GREAT. I will wash the remaining three before wearing them. I now LOVE this shirt. I might even order another one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LIRed Returned for smaller size
One of the reviews stated that this item ran small. I found just the opposite. I am 5'4" at 142 lbs. I usually wear medium. That review steered me away from ordering a small. The medium was huge on me, especially around the middle (where I actually carry my weight), and very long, and I also like long. I returned for a small and hope that it's not too big.

Rated 5 out of 5 by gloria70 Lovely shirt
I bought two of these and love them! Nice quality and good weight. I was reluctant to buy as I saw comments that said they were clingy. I am 5'2 and 148 lbs and there is no cling to this shirt despite the fact that my midsection is my problem area. I bought large and its a perfect fit! Not tunic length but falls below the hip. Perfect!
I have not washed them yet, but so far I am pleased.

So comfortable! The material has a good weight so will wear in the fall. I was very happy with the fit, fits a bit relaxed on me and the length is low hip, I am 5'5''. This top is made well, very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dnkmom Comfortable, relaxed fit, good quality
I'm 5'6" and 135, and I took a small. It fits perfect! Nice and relaxed, modest, and comfortable. L.L. Bean quality is evident in this one.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Jan1234567 Ok for some
I am 5'4" and 158lb. I like loose, so get XL. This "tunic" came to below waist, NOT tunic length!. Also, it was VERY tight across bust. The neckline gathers fell taut across bust top. No way could I keep this top! To be sure,checked inside top, and is WAS an XL.
Otherwise, if you are very small busted, and want a tee, this might do. The fabric was soft, and good weight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Miamichica Cute shirt and great quality
I really like this shirt. I love the 3/4 sleeves and the material is nice and thick for a t-shirt.....it is substantial and not see through at all. It is conservative in that way and I really appreciate that. I like the length, too. It covers my belly so I don't have to worry about showing too much. It is not skin-tight either like some of the cheap shirts from other stores. Overall I really like this shirt. My only complaint is that I ordered the "deep fuschia" color which I thought was going to be a burgundy or wine color, like a deep purple....that is what I wanted. However when I received it the color is just a bright pink. It is a less sophisticated color. However, it's still a cute shirt and I am going to keep it because it's great quality. I would love more color options in this.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Esmeraldah Clingy, runs small
Because other reviews said that the sleeves were tight, I went up one size when ordering. Even so, the sleeves are still tight. Fabric is way clingier than I like. And to call this a tunic is just silly. No way is it long enough to be reasonably classified as a tunic. The only reason I'm keeping this is because I bought up one size. If I'd bought my usual size, it would have been returned pronto, if not faster.

Rated 4 out of 5 by carolannie nice fit but they shrink some
Good fit with the raglan style sleeve. Slight gathering around the neckline give a little extra fullness in the front for the female figure. Fabric is a good weight a little heavier than other brands. Glad I read prior reviews as yes it does shrink a bit so glad I got one size bigger. Wish it had a longer sleeve, comes just below the elbow, would love it in deep purple or a rose color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HonestShopper Cute Shirt
I really like the design of this shirt. I purchased the one in Orange Spice Heather and may order another in Dark Elm Heather too. I recently gained about 10 lbs. When I wear this shirt, it doesn't show my bulgy stomach. It is very cute and comfortable. I am going to wear it with a matching scarf.
