Rated 1 out of 5áby ChrisRI Going from bad to worse!
My previous complaint was these tee's were not consistent in fit...but I ordered several of these this week and now they are consistent in fit- too tight! .. I lost weight and now in between sizes, but I decided to order my old size and go from there. Bad idea, these tee's now have the feel and limp clinginess of the Pima cotton and are long like the tunic (but in the sleeves too!) I don't know who they are made to fit but they're not even the great thick cotton they used to be either. Gal at the help desk did confirm they changed the fit, but they changed it to something they already had, a pima, "slightly" fitted tunic! Perhaps a new RN, ID number should be assigned to the new Tee?
But now they are consistent!

Rated 3 out of 5áby NanceoftheNorth Recommend ONLY if OFFERED in MORE PLUS COLORS!
I have enjoyed this style for many years, especially beautiful on a PLUS SIZE lady like me ~ but I cannot give LL BEAN more then 3 stars because of the poor number of COLOR CHOICES offered in PLUS! For instance, I would like PLUS CLASSIC NAVY, BUTTER YELLOW, SEA GLASS, COBALT and LILAC shades to wear on my travels to Highclere Castle and they are not available for purchase!
I would also like to match this style to a lightweight PLUS fleece zip-up jacket for my travels, but LLBean doesn't think to coordinate OR offer colors in PLUS sizes for these two items. If you only knew how many PLUS GALS would like MORE of these particular items COLOR COORDINATED, with MORE COLORS, your customers would be much more happy!

Rated 2 out of 5áby Kellee Disappointing
This used to be my favorite all around tee, but I have to agree with what others said about shrinkage. I always wash in cold water and line dry, but still find that they shrink quite a bit. Several of mine have shrunk so much in the length that I can no longer tuck them into my pants. Too bad...I am now trying to find another favorite tee (sigh).

I always model my purchases - this shirt earned an emphatic thumbs down due to the lack of shaping.

Rated 4 out of 5 Nice but shrinks!
This item shrank after the first washing. I purchased a larger size based on reviews of others stating the garment shrinks; I just wanted to be able to throw it in the wash with everything else. I took the following measurements for a size Regular Large new from the package and then again after the 1st trip through a regular wash and tumble dry. Length (from shoulder to bottom hemline) went from 26" to 24", girth 21.75" lying flat to 20.25", shoulder seam (neck seam to top of arm) with no change at 4", and sleeve (from armpit to sleeve hem) from 12" to 11" after laundering. I am 5'3" and weigh about 125 lbs with a short waist. Cannot remember if this is even offered in a Petite version (which I typically buy) but it would be way too short after washing even on me. Cannot say if a cold wash and hang dry would prevent shrinking. I just didn't want anything that had to be babied. Good quality construction and fabric weight seems mid weight - not too thin as is often the case these days.

Rated 4 out of 5áby greeneyes222 Correction
Need to correct my review. Upon closer inspection (and perhaps better light LOL), I think "slightly fitted" is accurate. I also forgot to add that I really like the weight of the shirt, not thin/light. All in all, good shirt!

Rated 2 out of 5áby greeneyes222 "Slightly fitted" not really
This shirt comes in both "relaxed" and "slightly fitted" which I didn't realize as they are identified the same, 'three quarter sleeve v neck" and the same model wearing the same color shirt is used for both. TA244335 slightly fitted TK244335 relaxed fit.It was only reading thru the full description and comparing item numbers (because the colors offered were different) I realized this. I did buy the slightly fitted which I wanted but I can't see that it is "fitted" at all. I bought the pet xsp and it hangs on me. On the positive side the neckline is perfect! To return or not to return...... Recommend if you really don't care about " slightly fitted" fit but then you might as well buy the "relaxed fit".

Rated 1 out of 5áby NorthernSnowflake Shrinks!
I loved the fit until I washed in cold water, dried on gentle cycle and found they shrunk 2" in length. Next wash 2 more inches. Now unless I can stretch them back into shape while wet I won't be able to wear them at all. I bought the pink and the blue, love the colors. This is unacceptable. T-shirts are the workhorse of the wardrobe and shouldn't have to be so fussy to care for.

Rated 4 out of 5áby booklee8888 Not for me?
I wanted to love these T's..I even bought three. The fabric, the cut, colors, everything wonderful, but...For me I guess I am realizing when it says the hem is "at the hip" I need BELOW the hip. For me it is not attractive for it to cut me off right at that part of my body.
Sure I like a Tunic, but sometimes I just want a T that is not a tunic, but not cut so short. I wear an LLBean medium but this cut is not good for me..unfortunately had to go back.

Rated 2 out of 5áby Capefan Shrinks a LOT
I really liked the feel and weight of the cotton in this shirt and the fit....until I washed it. Now it's a bit tight and the sleeves are up to the elbows. Wish I had not bought quickly and had taken the time to read the reviews. I would have bought a larger size to help compensate.
