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.

I am a curvy 5'3" and weigh 124 pounds. I ordered the petite small and it fits perfectly.

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!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Elsbethie Solid Marled Cotton Sweater
Love... Love... Love this sweater !! I live in north Florida and this sweater is perfect for cooler fall / winter days. Nice for work, great casual look and super cover for walking (the beach) on cooler mornings. The cotton is medium thickness and I find that it does breathe. I wear a plus size top so I purchased one size up for additional comfort. It is longer for good coverage. I find the pullover marled sweater more comfortable than the marled cardigan sweater. I will be purchasing additional colors!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by BostonTerrier This review is for the solid INDIGO marled sweater
Excellent daytime/casual sweater. The indigo color is slightly lighter in person than pictured.
You know it's a comfortable, well-fitting garment when you put it on and forget you have it on...it needs no pulling down, fussing or adjusting.

I bought this sweater in the violet (not striped) and I LOVE IT! This marled cotton is incredibly cozy cotton. And I'm crazy about the extra length. I wish they still had the striped one in my size, but since they don't, I'm contemplating going back for the yellow. I ususally wear a large in LL Bean sweaters, and I bought a large in this one. Bring this one back next year, LL Bean!
