Rated 5 out of 5 by Faithg Sweater with many uses
I bought this in light gray and loved it so much, I bought another in navy, something I very rarely do. I am 5'7", weigh 134 and am slightly long-waisted. As others have noted, this sweater is longer than it appears on the model-- which was what I wanted. It nearly covers my bottom. The medium would fit me well if I were still working and wanting to look career-professional. As it is, I wanted something casual and slouchy, but not sloppy or boxy, and this is perfect in the large. I am careful with my clothes and wash these on "normal" in a front loader with like colors and dry flat on a rack. No shrinkage.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Liz537 Really long
This is a soft, well crafted cardigan but unfortunately for my 5'4" self, it is really long. If you want a sweater to completely cover your rear end, this is the one, but it would look much better on someone very tall. Sorry to say, but back it goes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by IronRangeMom Perfect Cardi! Comfortable, Perfect Weight
Living in Minnesota we have winter from late October through late April, so I am always watching for good cardigans. This one is by far my favorite. I bought the navy and it's definitely a true navy. I'm 5'5" and wear either a L or XL depending on brand. I bought a large in this and it's just right for me. I'm a bit long-waisted so it comes to my mid-hip and the fit is not boxy or loose at all. I want a cardi that doesn't look sloppy as I wear them for work, shopping, almost anything, and this one will work for any occasion. I would buy more if there were bright Springy colors available. I have never been inspired to write a review in the past but I love this cardi so much I had to write this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by grandmaofAanl Runs small but so soft!
I got this and wore it the next day. I have the hoodie in the same fabric and love how soft these are. It will be great for year-round, I think it will be light enough for cool summer mornings and will be warm enough for cold weather with a long sleeve T under it. This cardigan is the right length, falls below my hips which is good. I normally wear a medium in most Bean sweaters, got this in large after reading the other reviews and am glad I did. I am 5'4", 135# and the large is perfect, not too tight nor too big in the shoulders. I haven't washed this one yet, but the hoodie washes beautifully, a few minutes in the dryer to remove wrinkles, then on the rack to finish drying.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CarolCola Definitely order the next size up
I ordered the blue/ember/white sweater. I ordered a size up & it is still a bit on the snug side. I paired it with the ember polo shirt & it looks smashing. I got 3 compliments the first day. I have 2 other sweaters the same style. They wash fine, but do tend to pill a bit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Houstontallshopper Perfect for business/business causal
I am 5'11" with a large frame but not overweight so it is difficult to find things that fit well. Plus sizes are too big, regular sizes do not fit the shoulders and arms as well as length. I wear a size 12 and while this does not come in a tall it is still long enough. I bought the large and it hits me very low hip, almost half way down my rear end. Perfect shoulder fit and while the sleeves are not long enough, I always push them up a bit anyway. I am wearing the blue color and it is a vibrant, yet deep, blue. I love it. Its jeans Friday today so right now this is paired with a casual fitted tunic top in a neutral color and dressed up with a nice necklace. (by the way, a tunic length top on me is HARD to fine - I mention in in the review because it took me years to find one). I will wear this with black dress pants as well, for during the week. I wish they had more darker colors such as black, graphite gray, and a rich purple color. I plan on keeping an eye out for tehse colors to be added.

Rated 4 out of 5 by scullysitter Snug fit
The sweater is described as slightly fitted. I ordered in my regular size small and the sweater was very snug. I want to wear it comfortably over a blouse or tee so I sent it back for a medium. The medium fits perfectly and it is a great value. Get it, just order up a size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by filumena2 Comfortable Cotton/ Cashmere Cardigans............
Great is the word for this cardigan. So soft, comfortable, light in weight.& stylish yet warm....Refined!...The Dusk Pink is a lovely shade of rose ...the Light Gray Heather was not what I had expected... It is very light in color in person,.... not like online, where it appears to be a little darker shade of gray... Wonder what the Blue Pine looks like in person?...looks like a pretty dark shade online...The fit is true to size, but it is a bit long, at 5'9", it's past my butt. That's ok! Can get a lot of wear out of this sweater...It can be a 3 or 4 season sweater. Light enough to fit under your down jacket... not bulky at all. A definite choice to be added to your wardrobe...Maybe some new added color choices in the future....Another great garment from llbean!

Wanted to love it. But it was just an unflattering fit. Baggy in the body.

Nice color (pink). A little thinner material than I had expected. I usually buy a size medium regular, but will have to return this as it is too tight in the arms and across the bust. If it had fit well, I would have been happy with the product, but at this price I would have thought it would be more generously cut.
