Rated 2 out of 5 by MountainGram Shrinks too much!
I purchased two of these nightgowns in large and had to return them for an XL....that's how much they shrunk after washing and drying according to label instructions. Not only did they shrink in length but were also way too tight in the arms and across the shoulders. For reference, I am 5' 3" and weigh 158 lbs. I generally wear a size 12 and according to the size chart for these gowns, and XL is an 18. Also, the fabric is not nearly as thick as the older version. I still have some of these gowns from many years ago; I don't expect the newer ones to last very long. The only reason I kept them is because they still are very soft and comfortable. I do wish LL Bean would go back to offering better quality items; but, I don't see that happening. Despite all the complaints about lower quality merchandise, LL Bean continues to decline in quality clothing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jdmat58 Soft, smooth fabric but a little short
I love this fabric! Soft and smooth and it holds up well -- meaning it doesn't pill and it doesn't stretch out of shape. (I also have one in the 3/4 sleeve style that I've had for over a year). It's comfortably roomy without being too big (I'm 5'2", 144 lbs). It's a little shorter than I'd like, but it works ok. LLBean, listen to all the reviewers who'd like the gown to be a little longer --like the 3/4 sleeve style maybe (?).

Rated 3 out of 5 by Chipper6 Too short
Like the feel and comfort of this nightgown, BUT it is too short and I am only 5'1". Would prefer that it be 2-3 inches longer.
The shirred neckline is nice and would look good on a tee shirt also.

I pre-washed these before wearing, cold water/low dry and they shrunk two sizes. I am a typical Large, purchase these in a 1X because I like my nightgowns very loose. I so wish LLBean would pre-wash their cottons. Very disappointed, I sent them back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JET20410 MY FAVORITE SLEEPWEAR
For years I keep coming back to this nightgown. I've bought many other pajamas, nightshirts, gowns...that I love but this is my favorite. It is the most comfortable pleasant sleepwear I've owned. I check every season for the new colors to arrive. I grab them quickly since they do sell out.

I owned a great LL Bean short sleeve scoopneck night gown made several years ago. I ordered the current version and the sleeves are tight. The older gown was a more relaxed fit.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Music444 Sooooo frustrated
Had bought Supima nightgowns and robes in past. Fell in love and swore I'd only wear Supima sleepwear from now on. So excited when saw you had gowns and robes. Usually love everything from you but not this time. I didn't get money's worth at all. Like many said it's too short and shrinks all over. I'm 5 foot but when I sit down gown doesn't cover my rear. The fabric is thinner and not as soft as should be. Shirring is not comfortable and plain neck would lay better. There's little flair below waist so NOT ENOUGH ROOM for comfort in bed. It should have plenty of material so when turning in bed I don't get twisted up in a tight tube. These don't have nearly enough fabric. I even bought Mawmaw looking print as I wanted more Supima gowns so badly. I see others say in the past that your gowns were much better quality. Please improve these. Robe and gown will have to go back as not roomy or comfortable. Your agent said more colors coming and I had wanted 4 more items. And now I can't buy for Christmas gifts either. Will check in future to see if design and quality get better. Thanks.

Rated 5 out of 5 I love this nightgown!
I just can't say enough about how nice it feels to sleep in this nightgown. It's super soft, and the fabric is substantial, not thin and clingy. It is so comfortable! I have only washed it a few times, but it comes out of the washer looking brand new. I have read other reviews saying it was short, but I am 5'8", bought a 2X and it's fine. It hits just above my knees. I do wish we had a few more colors to choose from.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Triena I like it
This night gown is a little clingy compared to the older supima night gown, but it doesn't get as twisted when I turn over in bed. Wish there were more colors available.
My old ones are falling apart and I would like a couple more in my drawer.

I have worn Bean Pima cotton tee shirts for many years. This is my first Pima nightgown and I ordered it in my regular tee shirt size. It's really too small and too skimpy.
This is a lovely, soft nightgown but I suggest you order up one size. Perhaps two sizes if you like your sleepwear generously cut.
