Rated 1 out of 5 by KingfieldDawn Not Usual LL BEAN Quality
The color and styling are beautiful, but the quality is not up to the usual LL Bean standard. I washed this on the delicate cycle and laid it flat to dry to avoid possible shrinkage. The cardigan did not shrink but the front opening edges (buttonhole side and button side) puckered and would require ironing -- if I were one to iron. I am sending this cardigan back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Domas Bring back the button cardigan
I love these cotton knit button cardigans with pockets and have several in plain colors and striped. They are perfect for cooler spring, fall and even summer days or evenings, and to have handy in air-conditioned offices. The pockets are great for a key when out walking the dog, or a tissue in allergy season. The trend to "fly away" styles does not suit me at all. Please LL Bean, bring these back in all sizes and colors.

Rated 4 out of 5 by webgal318 Regular is OK but petite would be better
The aqua sea color is beautiful. The size is true to size but it doesn't feel like a "relaxed fit" when it is buttoned. It fits just right. I am normally a 4 for tops and the XS was a pretty good fit. I definitely don't get "lost" in it like I often do when I order some regulars.
Petite sizes would be MOST welcome!
Overall great quality.

Rated 3 out of 5 by BeanFanFromFlorida Nice cardigan with uncomfortable sleeves
The solid color cardigan fits well in the torso in my extra-small size. The color (aqua sea) is lovely and the cotton-knit fabric is soft. However, the sleeves are quite narrow, and they bunch up uncomfortably at the elbows. The sleeve issue is important, and I don't think I would enjoy wearing the cardigan. Sadly, I am returning it.

I received this yesterday and just love it. I got the coral and the color is perfect, just the pick me up that I need. This will be great for spring and summer. I wish I could get it in more colors.

Rated 3 out of 5 by BorntoTravel2007 Love the Style but Shrinks and Fades
This sweater jacket is the perfect style to pop on when its cool, and comes in beautiful tones. Love the pockets too. I bought two in a small - I am 5'5" and 116 lbs, and it fit perfectly (which means a small runs a little small. Unfortunately when I washed the first (as directed in cold, low dryer) it shrank a lot - 1-2 inches in length and width in all areas including the sleeves., and the color seemed to dull quite a bit. It was easy to return, so I did so. I have not washed the second one yet, but will try by hand in cold to see if that helps. I do like the style and the soft fabric.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Llbeanclassy Perfect Fit
Perfect fit. Buy yourself a tape measure for proper fitting. I bought a large and it was fit to size, with little but not too much wiggle room. Perfectly flattering. Even though this item was made in Cambodia, it still has the perfect American fit. The coral was just what I needed for spring time and too add pop of color in this dreadful winter weather. I wish there were more colors available for purchase. This is a perfect cardigan for all year.
As for fit: I have on a lightweight turtle neck, vest, and my cardigan over it. So the fit is nice and flattering.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CarmenSandiego perfect long cardigan for my body
My specs: 5'1", 112 lbs, 34DD chest, narrow hips and slightly long arms.
Despite being petite, the XS Regular fits me well. I like the longer, low hip length and the sleeves are just passed my wrist. The shoulder seam is perfect. The chest and hip areas are fitted and the stomach area is comfortably roomy. It has a bit of the boyfriend fit, if that makes sense. One negative on me: the first button comes down to my low chest; I'd prefer it to be 2 inches higher.
It's 100%, typical Bean quality cotton. To minimize shrinkage I plan to wash it by hand in ice water before letting it go through the machine cycle.
The color Deep Mallard pairs well with greys and browns. It's a "quiet" color that is office appropriate.
Made in Cambodia.
The sale price is a good bargain.

Rated 4 out of 5 by mommycozy Good value on discount; some design flaw
I like the length, fit and pockets of this cardigan. It is a good, casual, mid weight layer. I had to return the stripe coral one because of the placket.
