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!

Rated 4 out of 5 by mommycozy A little too long and roomy
I love the marled cotton fabric. The colors of these sweaters are no doubt charming. The V neck style is best worn with layer because it is long and roomy. Not an entirely flattering sweater. The colors are great though.

Rated 3 out of 5 by BCChiker Too bulky
I do like warm sweaters, but this one is just too thick and bulky, especially in the sleeves. Also, the v-neck is unflatteringly high. And, be advised, the "Island Coral" is more like a light orange.

I ordered this sweater in a petite size so it would not be as long as described. I also ordered a size up, to medium and I am delighted with the fit. I wore it the day it was delivered and it has been washed and came through just as nice as it was in the first wearing. This will be a three season sweater. The texture of the sweater created in the different stitches also gives more interest in its visual appearance. A great all around sweater.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 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 5 by 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 5 by 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 5 by 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.
