Rated 3 out of 5 by 1ohioshopper1 Boxy and short
I'm just 5'5, so I expected these to hit me about mid hip or so. NOPE. And then they shrunk.

Rated 1 out of 5 by kayakgirl2 Shrinks!
I love these shirts, until I wash them. The just keep shrinking and shrinking. I've tried buying a larger size. I wash them in warm water and dry on low. They still shrink. I wash them in cold water and line dry. And they still shrink! Meanwhile, I'm loosing weight so I know it's not me. I have several of them now and I'm thinking about taking them ALL back for refund. I loved the 3/4 sleeve, V-neck unshrinkable shirts, they were great. So of course, they no longer have them. Please bring those back!

Rated 4 out of 5 by CaveatTalonWager BE SURE TO ORDER ONE SIZE UP
I ordered this shirt in several colors and they are beautiful. I think LLBean leads the industry in the nice variety of colors they offer in their clothing. The fabric used for these shirts is a very nice quality and is quite soft
Since I am an avid review reader before I purchase much of anything on-line, I did read several dozen reviews on this shirt and one thing kept popping up over and over again...SHRINKAGE. So I decided to order one size larger than what is my normal size and sure enough, I was swimming in it. I went ahead and washed and dried the shirts (on low) and they shrunk LIKE CRAZY! The good news is that now they fit me very well. The arms are a bit snug (I can't figure out why clothing designers and manufactures make garments with such skinny arms (and my arms are not inordinately big). Since there is nice stretch in this fabric, the arms are OK...I just would prefer a bit more roominess in them.
This shirt has nice contours for a person who has a waist and it is very pretty. If I could change one thing about it (other than the intensive shrinkage and thin arms) I guess that I would raise the "V" up a bit, but that's just personal taste.
Be SURE you pay attention to the comments about shrinkage and order up one size IF you are like me and don't like to baby garments in the wash OR might forget and accidentally throw these in the dryer...even one time. You will never wear it again...

Rated 3 out of 5 by NapaArtist Does not seem "slightly fitted"
I wasn't happy with the fit of this shirt. I bought a large in this and the Crew all cotton short-sleeve shirt, both of which were supposed to be "slightly fitted" This shirt was very baggy and hung down below my arm pits and out from my torso. The short-sleeve crew fit my body nicely. My husband also remarked on the difference. I am returning this one, disappointed to not be able to find a 3/4 shirt with the same fit as the short-sleeve shirt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by qscftyjpo So pretty
I got the top in the aquamarine heather. Stunning color. I forgot to measure before washing and drying. Not sure if it shrank or not. It's a good weight cotton knit, not thin, not too thick. Good for spring and fall wear.

I like the fabric but mine did shrink. I would recommend line dry.

Rated 1 out of 5 by ChrisRI Going from bad to worse!
My previous complaint was these tee's were not consistent in fit...but I ordered several of these this week and now they are consistent in fit- too tight! .. I lost weight and now in between sizes, but I decided to order my old size and go from there. Bad idea, these tee's now have the feel and limp clinginess of the Pima cotton and are long like the tunic (but in the sleeves too!) I don't know who they are made to fit but they're not even the great thick cotton they used to be either. Gal at the help desk did confirm they changed the fit, but they changed it to something they already had, a pima, "slightly" fitted tunic! Perhaps a new RN, ID number should be assigned to the new Tee?
But now they are consistent!

Rated 3 out of 5 by NanceoftheNorth Recommend ONLY if OFFERED in MORE PLUS COLORS!
I have enjoyed this style for many years, especially beautiful on a PLUS SIZE lady like me ~ but I cannot give LL BEAN more then 3 stars because of the poor number of COLOR CHOICES offered in PLUS! For instance, I would like PLUS CLASSIC NAVY, BUTTER YELLOW, SEA GLASS, COBALT and LILAC shades to wear on my travels to Highclere Castle and they are not available for purchase!
I would also like to match this style to a lightweight PLUS fleece zip-up jacket for my travels, but LLBean doesn't think to coordinate OR offer colors in PLUS sizes for these two items. If you only knew how many PLUS GALS would like MORE of these particular items COLOR COORDINATED, with MORE COLORS, your customers would be much more happy!

This used to be my favorite all around tee, but I have to agree with what others said about shrinkage. I always wash in cold water and line dry, but still find that they shrink quite a bit. Several of mine have shrunk so much in the length that I can no longer tuck them into my pants. Too bad...I am now trying to find another favorite tee (sigh).

I always model my purchases - this shirt earned an emphatic thumbs down due to the lack of shaping.
