Rated 5 out of 5 by Lollingagging Perfect in every way
This top is wonderful. Fits exactly as stated, easy to launder, and best of all very comfortable! I love it and have it in two colors now!

Rated 1 out of 5 by LMSWCASAC Shirt suffers from "gaposis"
This is the first negative review I've ever written on an item from llbean. I wore this shirt for the first time on a plane trip to Phoenix in Feb. The shirt gapped open and if that were not embarrassing enough, when I stood up to disembark, the buttons unbuttoned. I don't like tight clothing and this shirt was an xLarge and roomy. I wore the shirt one time since then (5 months) over a short sleeve T of the same fabric and shade. It worked but was unattractive. I won't be wearing it again unless I can stitch the opening together and slip it over my head. I can't be bothered. This shirt is a total waste. I ordered it to layer with llbean quilted vest and fleece I bought specifically to wear on the plane from NY to AZ. I found a turtleneck in the same shade and fabric for a plane trip to Florida in March which worked well. But everytime I see this buttoned shirt Online I want to warn others. Pay attention to reviews. I didn't.

Rated 3 out of 5 by LLBeanShopperDeluxe Thin Material
I bought 2 pima pintucks henleys in 3/4 sleeves, and was so pleased that I purchased this long sleeve one in pink, thinking it would be similiar. This one is not as well made as the 3/4 sleeve ones. The material is way thinner, wrinkles more easily, arms are more narrow, and the fit is longer and less flattering (at least on me). It reminded me of a top to pjs. If you like the pintuck front, and wouldn't mind a little shorter sleeve, I recommend you purchase the 3/4 sleeve one. Material is much more substantial, and packs/travels much better than this one.

Rated 2 out of 5 by BeanYouRock Nice top/Poor construction
The color, material and fit of this top was great. However, the little buttons on it frequently pop open. I had the right size for me, so it wasn't a matter of the top being too tight. I wore it one day, and during that day, one or two of the buttons would slide out of the button holes from time to time, and I had to re-button them. Could have been quite embarrassing, since I was out and about that day. I am returning the item today (June 26, 2015).

Rated 2 out of 5 by nycgal Beautiful, vibrant colors - style not for me
I purchased this style in multiple colors (all lovely) but I must return all.
While the fabric is nice, the shirts arrived very wrinkled, due to the amount of fabric that must be folded. It will require ironing now, and every time I wash it.
Also, the pin tucking on the front of some of the shirts is not sewn down correctly and will require careful ironing every time.
The buttons are real shell -- this is a high quality item, but will require too much maintenance on my part for everyday wear.

Love this top - have it in sleeveless as well. Flattering style and good fit. Washes well and no gaps between buttons.

Rated 5 out of 5 by celest Love it
I totally love this top. I'm 5'6" and weigh 130, and am long-waisted. A small fits perfectly. The scoop neck, tucks and other details set this shirt apart. Most tee shirts are too tight for me across the hips, but this one flares out just right. It is a lovely, heavy cotton. I have four of them in primary colors.

Rated 3 out of 5 by RickysMom mixed emotions
I love the bright violet color and the super soft and fine material. But the somewhat rough seams on the shoulders end up about 1 inch below my shoulders. So I'm constantly thinking my bra strap has slipped off my shoulders. NOT comfortable. In fact, it's irritating!
Also the top button won't stay closed. I tried washing and drying it to see if that would help and it didn't.
Don't know that I'll keep this. LOVE the color and fabric but the 2 problems are driving me crazy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by BusyBeanFan Great top for small-busted women
I love the way this top fits. I gambled on the size small after reading a review that the buttons didn't stay closed, and it worked out because with other shirts if I get a size large enough for my broad shoulders, it is way too baggy in the front. Also, with the sleeves rolled down, they are the right length for my long arms. I washed it out in cold water and dried it flat, and it did not shrink at all.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ShowKees mixed feelings
The fabric, color and style are nice. The fit is good. The only negative is that even though the shirt is plenty big, the front puckers and gaps between the buttons. Can't wear it without a tank underneath. Not how I planned to wear it, but will keep it because I need some roomy button front shirts to wear after recent shoulder surgery. Would be perfect if not for the serious gapping that leaves you exposed.
