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 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!

Rated 4 out of 5 by newera Glad I bought it
This turtleneck top comes close to what I seek for my everyday winter uniform -- a turtle neck under a warm sweater or other topper to help stay warm in our Great Lakes climate. The fabric is pretty good, it hasn't shrunk much, the neck is almost what I always look for -- not floppy and almost snug enough (without binding). For me, this is much more satisfactory than the more expensive LLBean Pima cotton turtle neck I ordered at the same time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by YukonBrunette Perfect fitting, flattering classic turtleneck
I got a petite M (and am about 140 lb, 5'@) and it fits perfectly. Not too tight, not too boxy: very flattering fit. Comfortable and the fabric is great. A staple item.

Rated 2 out of 5 by DraftyInNH Women's Turtlenecks Coming Up Short
I bought five of these shirts in different colors with the anticipation that since they were coming from LL Bean I would be getting a better quality and fit than I would with a department store purchase. The neck definitely fits better than department store shirts but the sleeves are halfway between three-quarter and full length. I keep feeling like I either need to pull them down to my wrist or push them up to my elbow. Also, the length of the shirt is so short that I am constantly reaching behind to try to cover my back to keep from being exposed. I am not a tall person 5'4" so I wasn't expecting this problem. After reading some other reviews, I see that others have had the same problem with the newer Bean turtlenecks. Please go back to the lengthier sleeves and body and when you do, post it in your catalogs so that we can know you have made the change. LL Beans shirts are three times more expensive than a department store shirt. The fit should be better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by evpalulis Correction to my previous review
My old age eyes must have pulled a different shirt from my closet. Today I put on the correct turtleneck and it is perfect. I call LLBean and wanted to withdraw my bad review but that is not possible so I am writing to apologize.

Rated 2 out of 5 by evpalulis Turtlenecks have changed.
I've been buying your turtlenecks for years. I ordered the same size, L, and returned it because the sleeves were too short. I exchanged that for an XL and the sleeves seemed to be even shorter. I am currently wearing an old LLBean turtleneck that has probably been washed 30 times and the sleeves are much longer. So disappointing.

Rated 2 out of 5 by AdkLakeDweller Also Experiencing the Shrinkage Issue
The colors are vibrant and as many have already said, they fit well at first but after 3 or 4 washings, they shrink considerably. I'm a huge LL Bean fan but these are definitely not up to snuff.

Rated 4 out of 5 by artistandcook Good quality turtleneck, but needs special care
I agree with some of the other reviews. I have been ordering LLbean turtlenecks for years. It is the only kind I like. I also notice some of the shirts are thinner. I have some from 2 years ago and realized that any future shirts that I ordered had to be line dried so those wouldn't shrink. I have always washed these shirts in cold water. Starting last year, I now hang up the shirts, no dryer. I have a lovely blue one from the fall of 2013 and because I treat it with special care, it didn't shrink or lose its' color. This year I ordered the black stripe on blue, it is a beautiful shirt and again is treated with special care. I received a cranberry one for Christmas and I do remember in the past that these cotton shirts were thicker, but I still prefer LLbean over other choices. I like many of the other products as well and I am a long time customer. I like the sizing and I think the shirts are great for women are have a more mature figure.

Rated 4 out of 5 by sthrelk sleeves to short
Love this turtleneck, it is so comfortable and soft and have purchased in several colors because I love it so much in the winter. This recent purchase I noticed the sleeves were much shorter than my other ones by about 1/2 to 1 inch. Sized perfectly, except the length of the sleeves were short. It washes beautifully and retains its shape and color excellently! Did I say how soft and comfortable it is to wear as a layered item when it is super cold.
