Rated 4 out of 5 by KtTheMainer203 Lovely sweater
I have been eyeing this sweater for over a year, and was excited to finally have the right combo of a sale and some coupons for it to be affordable. It is a well-made sweater, very thick and sturdy-I'll be glad to have it come winter. And the indigo color is absolutely stunning! The only reason I have given this sweater 4 stars is that I wish it came in bigger sizes. As a 5'9", size 14 woman, a large is definitely on the snug and short side for me. I actually had some trouble getting my (not larger than average) arms into the sleeves. I would definitely still recommend this sweater, but maybe size up if you're not petite and/or on the curvier side.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rhubarb737 Love this Sweater
I am very happy with this sweater! I purchased the Mountain Red solid colour in size XS regular. That is my usual Bean size, and I am 5'7" and weigh 130lbs, early 30s, hourglass-type shape. The fit is definitely more snug than the non-signature line, but this was a plus for me as I often find the sizes to run big in the usual line. For my size and shape, the look is fitted, and is true to how it looks in the pictures. It sits shorter in body length such that it looks great with a button up shirt under it and will show the layering nicely. The pattern is very attractive and I am very happy with the red colour. It is a deep, cherry sort of shade. You have to be a little careful as the stitching can hook into things around you, and is softer being a cotton, but that's ok. I like it enough that I would purchase more colours.I haven't washed the sweater yet, so I am hoping it will withstand that ok.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dhuoda Casual, yet refined
Purchased the Mountain Red shade (Nice warm wine hue) in XXS (for ref. I'm 5'3"/95, 34/24/34). The fit around the shoulders, breasts, and the waist-length are PERFECT for my short stature. The sleeves are slightly long on me, but they look nice turned back. The thick cotton-knit is attractive, good-quality and well-finished. Looks great with the tight LLB jeans or cargo pants. Can be worn alone/over a tee for casual look or over a shirt to add a touch of elegance..... Please LLbean, keep up offering the XXS size. for us , PETITE women!!!!!...

Rated 5 out of 5 by leiaca4768 great fit, nice design
I'm petite, so most standard-sized sweaters I've bought are too long for me, falling at mid-thigh. This garment fit perfectly, and I love the design of the weave. I bought two sweaters in this style - in plain beige and in striped navy blue and beige.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Murphys6 Liked but too short
Ordered this in red for a Xmas gift for my HS daughter who is 5'6" and 105 lb. Loved the color and styling but it is just too short in the waist. The next size up is only 1" longer so we are returning it. Would probably work ok for someone who is short waisted but not for my daughter who I would say has an average waist.
Said no to recommendation solely on short waist. If it were longer we would have kept it and recommend to others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by tayl0rvandyke Couldn't Ask for a More Perfect Sweater
I received this as a Christmas gift two years ago now and I could not have imagined anything better. I'm 5'2, 100 pounds and I have the sweater in small and beige. I think the extra-small would be a little too small. Mine hits me just below the waist and keeps me really warm. The knit is beautiful and if I could wear the sweater every day in different colors, I know I would be.
Thank you, L.L. Bean, for nailing it on fashion and customer service every single time!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Andreaczs25 Fisherman Sweater love it!
I have ordered 2 of these sweaters. I love them.I am 5'3 in. Weight about 118. I ordered both small. They are a perfect fit. This is not a baggy sweater. It sits right on above hip on me. The arm length right to top of my wrist. The sweater is great chilly days. I ordered a blue and at the time they had it in orange. Nice color Fall. They seem hold shape after washing. I hang dry. I would recommend.

by annaca2000 Best Christmas gift ever!
My fiancee got it for me for Christmas and after trying it on I just didn't want to take it off. I'm 5'7 (128 pounds) and got small and it fits like a glove. I have long torso but the length couldn't be perfect. Now I have an eye on a pink washed one, I wish they were on sale..

Rated 5 out of 5 by NicknamesRPointless Perfect Fitted Sweater
I got this because I needed a more professional, less casual/sloppy sweater. Most of my sweaters I buy big so I was a bit worried buying this in a small. (I am 5'4, 118 lbs, 34D, small boned) This sweater fit perfectly. Everyone who saw me in it, complimented me. (Which made me wonder how horrible I've been looking in my non-fitted sweaters) I am short waisted, so the sweater looked a normal length on me, not cropped/short the way it looks on the model on the website. The sweater is cotton but a thick weave so it's warm - unlike some cotton sweaters I own that are so loosely woven you can feel the wind right through you. I wish this sweater came in black or dark brown. I would buy both of those colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 7lexi7 Beautiful quality
Highest quality sweater, and very beautiful in person. Lots of stitching detail. It really looks handmade.
About the fit: My chest measures 38" around and the Medium fit that comfortably. I was also happy with the fit on the upper arms, as that can sometimes be a too-tight problem for me
I am having a hard time deciding if I should keep it or not though. It is such a great sweater, but it is thick, and I don't care for the additional bulk on my smallish but rounded frame.
