Rated 4 out of 5 by mommycozy Lilac color is pretty
This sweater is longer than the boat neck so I had to order the petite. I enjoy the v neck style although I am still a fan of the boat neck. The bottom flares out a little bit though, so the drape is not terrific.

Rated 5 out of 5 by marls00 Nice - well-made, comfortable & attractive.
This sweater is a bit on the thick side, but I don't consider that a negative. It's nice to have a couple of chunkier, thicker sweaters to wear with jeans or whatever. It's attractive in a laid-back kind of way and looks good on. The v-neck is a little higher which for me is a plus because I get cold so easily and do not like when v's are too wide or low. This sweater does not cling at all. It's the type of knit that after washing you can pull out and stretch a bit if you need a little extra room in some areas. At the same time,, it hold it's shape well. I'm 5'4", 130 lbs, size 6 in pants with a small-ish chest. I bought a small and it fits perfectly. I haven't washed it yet and will post another review if there are any problems -- I don't anticipate any. Very happy with purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Barbara96 Very Pretty, but Heavy
This sweater is beautiful in blue!
I should have thought more about the description.
It is too heavy for my taste. It is a very nice fit otherwise.
However, my daughter was at my house, the day I got it, and loved it, so I gave it to her.
It made her blue eyes all the more beautiful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by likewarmth very nice quality, heavy sweater
The SMALL size sweater I ordered could fit two of me in it; it's that huge! All out of X-Sm. so I'm out of luck. Don't know if it's just this one that runs so large or if others have found the same.
Size consistency is not as good as it used to be with LL Bean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lovemysheepdog Great sweater!
Love the blue. I'm 5'6", 145 lbs, and I got the size Large because it's cotton and I don't like tops snug across my middle, so the fit is great for me to layer a tee or tank underneath. Very flattering the way it skims over my body. The sweater is heavy weight, thick but very comfortable. I wear it with skinny jeans , scarf and boots. Wish they had more colors left in my size.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Happy25y Pretty sweater, but...
After reading customer reviews, I ordered medium petite instead of my usual medium regular. The sweater fit fine, but after the first laundering it shrank, especially in the sleeves. This is the reason I gave it four stars instead of five. I just reordered in a medium regular size and plan to return the original purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SouthCarolinaGal V-Neck Marled Solid Color Pullover/Wisteria Blue
I got this sweater in the wisteria blue, it is beautiful. Sweater is a nice medium weight and I will be wearing with blue jean leggings. It is plenty long to cover my hips and rear, which is what I was looking for. I am 5' 10" so sometimes it is difficult to find tops long enough. Wish Bean would offer more tall sizes. The colors are now all sold out in my size or I would buy more! Sweater washes up fine, I used Woolite in cold water on delicate wash, then in dryer for about 10-15 minutes and then lay flat to continue drying. No shrinkage that way. Hope this one comes back and in more colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SafetyChick Cozy Sweater
After reading other reviews about the sweater being long, I ordered a regular medium. After thinking about it, I ordered a petite medium a couple days later (before receiving my original order). The regular medium was a bit too big and long. I've lost weight and used to be a large in LL Bean clothes. I'm now a size 8 so I should have paid closer attention to their size chart and ordered a small. The petite medium arrived and it fits perfectly. It is still plenty long enough (it falls at my hips instead of a couple inches below) and it's roomy enough to layer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MyGuiltyPleasure FABULOUS Sweater - Great fit & rear end coverage
This review is for the SOLID color sweaters - To give you perspective on this review, I should let you know that I am a 46 year old, petite and curvy mother of 2 young boys. I am 4' 11" with a 32H bust. I have 3 main requirements for my clothes: (1) comfortable (2) modest and (3) machine washable. Not only is this sweater all of that, it is also extremely cute and flattering. It is a longer length, so it gives great hip/rear end coverage which I love! The upper body is a bit more tailored, so it minimizes my bust very nicely. I bought 4 of these in the Petite Large and am only sorry that 2 other colors I liked are no longer available in my size or I would have bought them too!! Thanks L.L.Bean!!!!
