Rated 3 out of 5 by Dondus Disappointed
I have purchase these shirts before and was pleased with them. This time I ordered a red and a purple one. The red one faded onto my under clothes and when I put on the purple one, it had a snag in the material right in the front. The quality of this order was not the same as my previous order and I will not be ordering them again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ILoveBoatandToteBags SUPER sleeveless shell!
I LOVE this shirt! I bought it at the outlet in Freeport, ME and discovered I have been buying the wrong size all these years! I switched from small misses to extra small petite after discovering that the petite is more than an inch shorter. (I hate long shirts that hang down long and only emphasis the back side and belly!) I like the modest neckline and the armholes that are designed small enough to fit one arm instead of two arms in each! I had to buy "butter" because that was the only color they had. Yellow is not really my color, but I don't care because it fit so well and the fabric is so soft! I told my daughter that I feel like a banana, but that's OK....I'm one comfy, happy banana! :)

I LOVE this shirt. I have it in three colors now and wear one almost every day in the summer. It fits so well! The armholes, neckline, and the overall length are perfect. Great colors and super soft cotton, too. For reference, I am an athletic 40-something, 5'3", 130 pounds, 36DD.

Loved the colors, loved the high neck and fit.....hated the fabric. It was soft, very soft......but it was thin.....incredibly thin material.

This is my "go-to" summer top.... modest neckline and armholes, and it covers bra straps completely!

Rated 3 out of 5 by WNYNonna Pima sleeveless shell
Love the Pima cotton material; it's silky, soft, and usually keeps it's shape with minimal shrinkage. Because this is the first purchase of this tee, I hope my experience with other pima tees holds true for this shell. I ordered a sz lg after checking size guide, but didn't get as expected. Shell is close thru bust area, measures less that sz. specs. Armholes do not lie flat under arm appearing a bit too wide. Previously ordered tees have been sz large and always have fit well. What's up? Inconsistency has not been an issue with Bean orders in the past.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Mona828 Not a good fit
I purchased some of the sleeveless shells in plus size 1X earlier this summer. The fabric is good, but they need to be about 2 inches longer, and I'm not tall, just 5'6". Also, the arm holes need to be a LOT smaller! I won't be getting more of them. But the tops with sleeves are good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by EnergeticGrandma Runs small, colors may not be as shown
I usually wear a medium but after reading reviews I ordered a large. The fit is good so I suggest ordering a size up.
I ordered the arctic purple and the color is much lighter than shown, more of a lavender than a purple.
The garment had a funny smell when I opened the bag but I hope it will come out when laundered.

by jennww2ns Plus size review
I don't typically like having my photo taken but thought I had no choice with how very, very badly these tops fit.
First off, I usually wear a size 2x and that's what this top was. When I inquired about these shirts, I was told the plus sized ones had darts but they don't.
The material is medium weight but feels like it might not hold it's shape very well. The length was as described.
I ordered 2 tops ("brightwater blue" and "arctic purple") and they both fit the same.
The main issue is the arm holes. While they fit well shoulder-to-armpit, they were awful front-to-back and didn't lay flat to the body. Instead they pouched out and created these weird... wings? places to rest your thumbs?
Needless to say, I'm sending them back.
(The black you see in the side-boob area in the side view picture is my bra, not shadow.)

This is my favorite top of all time. The fabric is soft and smooth, the colors wash well, and the fit is simple and comfortable. It's a great first layer for anything from a beach walk to a dinner out. L.L.Bean has made minor changes to the styling over the years and IMHO each time has been an improvement. Truly a perfect wardrobe basic!
