Rated 5 out of 5áby maryincanada great sweater for fall/winter
I recently bought the indigo v necked sweater. It is more of a medium blue than indigo but pretty all the same. I would not say this is a spring /summer sweater, it is heavy and is better for fall and winter. Like the other reviewers noted, it is fitted and longer than a typical pullover . It looks great with skinny jeans and leggings; not so much with regular fitting pants as it tends to cling around the hips and rear and shows the lumpy parts. I am looking forward to colder weather so I can wear it!

Rated 5 out of 5áby ecm86 Great sweater for fall!
I saw this sweater on sale in my local LLBean store and fell in love. I purchased the light purple color. The color is absolutely beautiful, and the sweater feels like it is made from a very thick, high quality material. I cannot wait to wear this sweater when it gets cooler in the fall! I have worn it around the house a few times and it is extremely comfortable. I will definitely be purchasing more colors!

Rated 4 out of 5áby Jed4 Thicker than I thought
This is a very nice sweater - soft, warm and long enough for a moderately tall person. However, it is a lot thicker than I thought - definitely more of a winter sweater, despite the summery colors.

Rated 1 out of 5áby rappunzell Very clingy - in all the wrong places
This sweater is too thick, clingy, and long. The way it hangs on me, it conceals my chest, and enlarges my hips and buttocks. Very unflattering!
I've been very dissatisfied with LLB fit on many items. They have a tendency to make armholes much too big, sleeves too short (instead of a two-button adjustable cuff with a longer sleeve) and a shapeless body. Too bad since I like many of the fabrics and colors.

Rated 5 out of 5áby suester Great Sweater
I like everything about this sweater. Great shape, fit and quality. Lightweight. I am 5'4" and ordered petite and it is long enough to cover to mid hip. It is my go to top. I am going to order another.

Rated 5 out of 5áby eibbed0615 I just orded my second Marled Cotton Sweater
This sweater fits nicely and the weight of the weave is heavy enough to cover some of those less desirable curves without a cardigan as a cover up. It washes up very nicely, held its shape and did not become shorter after several times thru the washer & dryer. This is a sweater I look forward to wearing.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Tovah warm and wonderful - happy clothes
I look forward to coming home to this sweater every night and putting it on. It is just the right length for me (5'8") - I love the color (ocean) - and I especially love how warm it is. It is perfect for MN winter nights. I am buying another one.

Rated 2 out of 5áby neurosurgerytech I Really Should Have Believed the Other Reviewers!
I should have taken the other reviewers at their word -- this sweater really IS too long . . . freakishly long, to the point of being unflattering. I don't mind a longer sweater (say in a cardigan) but with this pull-over style, it just comes off as being frumpy. It goes about two inches past the caboose, so if you've got a generous one like me, it is just going to maximize it all the more. Not a good look.
The colors are lovely, the weight of the sweater is perfect, and I like the texture created by the variations in the knitting. If this sweater could have stopped at mid hip instead of going on to look like a mini-dress, it would have been a winner. Sadly, it is going back.

Rated 2 out of 5áby PunSpec Nice heavy sweater, but fit did not suit my frame
I liked the thickness and color of the sweater but it was a very unflattering fit; it hung like a tent. It fit well through the shoulders and sleeve length. It was nice to see the longer length but it was way too wide at the hips.

Rated 3 out of 5áby nancys waaay to long
I love LL bean sweaters, have quite a number of them-last for years! Tried the new marled cotton, first in the coral in a medium. Sleeves too long and body way too long, so ordered it in petite medium, but in Aqua Sea. LOVE the aqua sea color, sleeves were proper length, but sweater was too long-and being a little more fitted, added "junk to my trunk", so not flattering. If it was either slightly less fitted, or about 2" shorter, would have been perfect. I hope they either change the fit, or make differently fitting sweaters in Aqua Sea color. Material feels wonderful, wish it would have fit better on me!
