Rated 3 out of 5 by lbsea great hoodie except for maternity type design
I'm 5'4'', 120 lbs, slim, athletic and usually wear a small. From LL Bean XS tends to fit me better so that's what I ordered. The hoodie is so cozy, beautiful blue color and would have been perfect except that below the chest it's designed to accommodate what I can only describe as an enormous stomach. No exaggeration you could easy put a basketball in there. It creates such an odd silhouette. I can't imagine why LL Bean would do this to an otherwise great hoodie at a excellent price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cocoloco53 lily pond hoodie
I love these I purchased 3 for last winter in mild Myrtle Beach and I love the fit and styling. Also the thumbs grips are great to keep my wrists warm. I'm back again to purchase more as I have lost weight and am disappointed there isn't a bigger selection. Please offer these again

Rated 5 out of 5 by MarinaMama Wow, is this nice!
This hoodie is of outstanding quality--fabric, design, & workmanship. I got the coral color, size xxs (all that was left at the greatly reduced price). I'm a busty 5'4" and 115 pounds and the xxs is quite fitted on me, and a bit too small for the thumb holes to be comfortable, but it's such a cute cut. I'm wearing it over a Seamless Studio Cami; it's too snug to layer over anything else. So I cannot wear it as outerwear, but that's okay. It'll keep me warm around the house, and I like a pocket for my cell phone. I can tell it will hold its shape; it's a resilient stretchy fabric that's very soft. I just have to hope it doesn't shrink, as it does have some cotton.

I really like this sweater, light weight but warm. Very soft on the inside, not bulky. Loose fitting which is nice. Also I'm long torso so I'd prefer if it was a little longer but I'm still happy with it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by mmmpork Lightweight and Warm, Great Fit!
Overall I love this hoodie and just have 2 minor issues requiring me to dock a star. I ordered this in the Icy Gray in a size Medium. My measurements are 38" bust, 34" waist, and 48" hips. The hoodie fits comfortably over a short sleeved or long sleeved tshirt. I got this to wear as a warmer layer when a jacket would be too much. I've worn this with a scarf and long sleeved shirt in 45 degree to 55 degree weather and was very comfortable. For windier or slightly colder weather, a thin, unlined windbreaker over that was sufficient to keep me comfortable. I love the color, it's more of a light blue than a light grey. The hood fits well and the thumb holes are comfortable for me. The hoodie is incredibly soft and warmer than you'd expect for how thin it is. I love the fuzziness of the inner fabric.
The only things I'd change is I'd like to see some kind of zip or closure for the pockets. They are very deep and well placed, but having that extra security would be nice. The other thing is the quality of the zipper on my hoodie isn't the greatest and it's a little difficult to get the end of the zipper into the notch so I can start zipping it. I think the little metal tip needs to be a bit longer, it can take me a few tries, and then it tends to stick when i'm unzipping it.
All of that said, just 2 minor things but otherwise I've been wearing this thing everyday. I line dry my clothes and this dries within an hour if I spread it out well enough and have the fan going.

Rated 5 out of 5 by newmidwestshopper Great fit
I got this hoodie in the coral color. It is more orange than it looks, but still looks nice. I got a size medium. I am 5'4" and about 140lbs. The medium is roomy, but not too baggy. It is a good size for wearing long sleeve shirts under. Sleeve length is good. The thumbholes are a bit small, but I have big hands. I probably won't be using them as they are uncomfortable. Pockets are huge, which is nice. Hoodie is also warmer than I thought it would be and has a subtle pattern to it. This is nice enough to wear out and about and still casual enough to wear in the house. Overall, very pleased with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bebetalk Can't Say Enough Good About This Hoodie
All the reviewers seem to be in favor of this hoodie and I'm no different. I had to order up a size - bought a medium and it is slim-fitting so I exchanged for a large. I put it on and don't want to take it off. It is soft enough to be pajamas - cloud soft. I wear it with light t-shirts and it provides lots of warmth but is also light enough and comfortable enough to wear around the house. The Ice Gray is a very pale blue and looks beautiful with jeans.

Bought this based on other reviews and I'm so glad I did I love the color and the fabric is soooo soft. It is the perfect weight for spring and early fall. The fit was also wonderful I bought the M. and it was not to tight or to loose I'm 5'5 135#. The Dark Taupe with blue grey stitching is really a great combo.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SRMRN Runs really large!!
I just received my lily pond hoodie, and it was huge! I ordered an XL, which I usually order in LL Bean tops for a little extra room, in case of shrinkage. It seemed like an XXL, and I am sending the XL back and ordering the Large. I ordered it in the medium gray, which is a nice color, and would highly recommend!
