Rated 5 out of 5 by LLBeanBeliever Best Turtleneck Ever!
I've been wearing Bean's t-necks for several decades. They fit perfectly and look great dressed up or down. And I appreciate that the neck isn't tight and constricting. They array of colors matches Bean items I've had for years, and they resist pills and fading like no other t-necks I've every bought. Way to go, Bean!

Rated 1 out of 5 by HeirloomBean Remarkably shapeless
I ordered this in my usual 2X, and it just looked like someone had cut a rectangle out of a piece of stiff cotton. It had no drape and it looked like i was swearing a barrel. I sent it back.
It should be obvious, but women's sizes need bust darts or some shaping to look decent. The straight cut just adds pounds.
I live in a town with an L.L.Bean store, and find it very frustrating that they do not carry women's sizes in the store. It's very annoying to have to order things by mail when customers in the misses' sizes get to waltz into the store and browse the racks and try things on immediately.

Rated 5 out of 5 by albanycatlover great fitting tutlenecks
I love the fit of these turtlenecks! Some reviewers complained that they were too short in length or the sleeves were too short- that is actually what I love about them. I am 5'4 and usually shirts are too long in the arms or length- these turtlenecks are just right for me in petite medium!! The material is very soft and high quality. The colors are vibrant. Very pleased!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by 1morecustomer Great! Love these!
These turtles are excellent. They fit well and wash up nicely. All in all I find they are a great purchase. Thanks for keeping the quality consistent.

WHERE are the relaxed fit interlocken cotton turtlenecks? I've worn them for over 30 years and they fit perfectly and not too tight like the 'slightly fitted' ones you have now. PLEASE bring them back!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by SEMinDC Excessive shrinkage!
I ordered two of these striped turtlenecks in my usual size. After washing as instructed (cold water wash, low dry) both had shrunk, particularly in the sleeve length. Because I really liked the look of the shirts, I then ordered two more, but in a larger size. After the larger ones arrived, I compared the two to make sure that they were identical in overall size and length, then washed only one of them. The sleeves on the one I washed shrank a full three inches! It was only then that I read the reviews to find that many others who purchased these shirts in the last six months had the same problem. It is disappointing to see that LL Bean continues to sell these turtlenecks even after all the comments about shrinkage. When two long-backordered solid color interlock turtlenecks arrived a month after the striped ones, I washed only one, with the same result. All six shirts were returned to a store for a refund. I have been wearing LL Bean's turtlenecks (usually in Tall which I wish LL Bean would bring back) for more than 20 years without a problem, but quality control has changed.

found the fabric coarser than previous T-necks, not as stretchy. Sleeves too short. Shrunk when washed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DCFCshopper Neck too short and loose
Have ordered Bean's turtlenecks for years in solids and now in the welcome micro-stripes. However, the necks are shorter and looser in both models as of the past few years' orders. As Beans addresses the other feedback concerning too-short sleeve length, please also restore the neck length to the old standard and consider slimming the neck width -- or offer a slimmer neck width option in misses Regular and Petite sizing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MotherOf3Munchkins Good, but short
Love the fit and the cuffed sleeves, but please make them longer. I am not at all a tall woman (5'4") but they keep coming un-tucked.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Luvbeanproducts Bean turtlenecks are the way to go!
I have the raspberry and the teal and love them both. Fit is great and I get compliments on them all the time. I wash them, dry on med. heat, and put them back on. I have a tendency to stay cold in winter and they help keep me warm. I have had them about a year and they still look like new!
