Rated 5 out of 5áby aUSconsumer Loving It!
My 4th LL Bean Turtleneck and appreciate the wide range of colors & collar choices. We have a real old fashioned winter here and have been layering these with sweaters. Haven't had them long enough to notice shrinking but did note others saying to order a size up to allow shrinkage & as I enjoy soft & "roomy comfortable" so far these have fit the bill.

Gets shorter each time I wash it - sleeves are now 3" above wrist & won't stay tucked in. Circumference is perfect!
I'm returning it, and really want the same thing, but without the shrinkage. Wish there was a bit of poly in it to prevent the shrinkage.

I am a typical size 'x-small' I took a chance ordering this because LL Bean is known for its target audience for a fuller cut figure. So I washed it. It shrunk up 3" at the hem, and the sleeves are now above my wrist bones. Overall the length shrunk up 15% while in the width it shrunk by 5%. All this after following washing instructions for a 100% cotton top. Buyer beware.;-(

Rated 1 out of 5áby edumom12 Shrinks with washing
Bought this for my mother in her regular size which is med petite. Looked good until I washed it. Then the sleeves shrunk up a lot, and the neck got wider. So then it didn't fit at all. Try regular rather than petite to allow for shrinkage if you must order this. Also not suitable for the elderly because of the big floppy neck. Customer service was great as they allowed me to return this item.

Rated 3 out of 5áby Vt1st Bad Tag
This is a well made product, as you would expect for LL Bean. However, I chose to return it. The tag sewed into the side seam is extremely uncomfortable. I very carefully tried to remove it and was left with a large hole in the side seam. I hope the designers read this and address this problem.

Rated 1 out of 5áby Henrydoodle Horrid neck
I bought 3 of these because you stopped offering the Pima cotton turtleneck in plus sizes. This is not a good substitute! The neck squashes down constantly so I am always fixing it. It really looks bad and is a nuisance. I don't have a big neck and the collar doesn't feel tight. Just a bad design. Bring back the regular turtleneck in plus sizes in the Pima!

Rated 1 out of 5áby Tucci good fit but....
I purchased 2 mock turtlenecks on Oct.7. With the first wear the neck was so loose and streched, it wasn't even close to being wearable. I have been wearing these for years and have never encountered this. So dissapointed!!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5áby dogocentric A pleasant surprise
I like the slightly fitted fit of this top. I am 5'2" and weight 115, and ordered petite small. I wasn't expecting it to be so short, though it says hip length--there's no coverage at the bottom, but that makes it look very neat, with no baggyness. The neck and cuffs are exactly right; any bigger size and the sleeves would have been too long; any smaller and my hands would not have fit through and the neck would have been tight. After reading other comments, I think I will hand-wash it and air-dry. So overall I like it a lot. The fabric is very comfortable, and happily, after hugging the dog, it was very easy to brush the dog hairs off the black material.

Rated 3 out of 5áby LibertyHillLabs Don't like the taller neck of the newer mock-necks
It's been a couple of years since I have needed to replenish my supply of mock-necks. The ones currently available have great fabric weight and feel, which is why I buy LLBean tops. But the mock-neck appears to be significantly higher than the last time I bought them. I find the taller neck much less flattering than the lower mock-necks that I currently have. When I look down, the neck hits me in the chin. And because it is taller, it gaps more around the neck.
I bought one but couldn't stand the new neckline, so will wait until they hopefully redesign again and have a lower neck profile. If I wanted a neck that high I would buy a regular turtle-neck.
