Rated 2 out of 5 by rumbasmama has gotten thinner
I have bought this product a few times and was satisfied before. This time, it has gotten so thin that I won't purchase this product any longer. I know silk is sold "by weight", just as silver and gold, and since the price of silk has gone up, I guess they use less of it now. I would look for elsewhere for a better product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Snowfall top quality, delicate versatile layering piece.
it is somewhat stretchy but still fits nicely. i'm 5'5", 130 lbs, size small fits right. the scoop and 3/4 sleeves mean I can wear this with more sweaters and tops than long sleeve undershirts.

Rated 4 out of 5 by lastMinuteOrder silk underwear
for my sister, size 2, who is always cold. Says it keeps her comfortable under regular clothes in house without extra sweater.
wears top and bottoms. Only down side was I didn't get the color I wanted as it was out-of -stock the week before Christmas. So don't count on availability at short notice or busy times. Several experiences with poor color selection at LL Bean. Colors tend to be muted and drab, not suited for my color palette. Fortunately, silk underwear is always covered.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SoCAhopper Warm and Comfortable
I purchased the Silk Pointelle top after hearing that silk was a good, warm base layer. I tend to be cold all the time and when I saw that L.L.Bean sold silk base layers and receiving a gift cert for a birthday gift I decided to finally purchase one. After reading the reviews and consulting with a friend who also loves L.L. Bean I went with this one and, so far, have not been disappointed. I hope that the weather will cool down here and become winter again so I can use it more.

Rated 1 out of 5 by roadrunner2010 wonderful material; uncomfortable tag
At first glance, this shirt looked wonderful. When I put it on though, I found the tag in the back of the neck terribly uncomfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Orchidgrower Finally an 'invisible' long underwear top
I have looked for a base layer that was thin, close fitting and scooped neck for a long time. I have super warm underwear for outdoor activities, but wanted something to wear under wool sweaters that have a bit of itchiness without adding bulk. These are perfect - block the itch, don't show (the scoop depth was perfect on my 5' frame) and don't affect the desired sleek look. Plus they add warmth to those loose fitting sweaters that let in drafts. I got a Petite 'Small' and could have used an extra 1/2 inch in the bust. The 'Medium' would have been too big, but luckily the material has some stretch and isn't binding. It would be good if the size selections didn't jump an inch or more between sizes. I hope LLB keeps offering these because another color I wanted wasn't available in my size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Seaglass3 A must for every winter wardrobe
Been buying these silk tops for several years for myself and daughters. We love them. They're soft, not bulky and add a layer of warmth. I like the 3/4 sleeve because it keeps my arms warm but doesn't hang below the cuff of an outer layer. If you need serious additional warmth under clothing you may want to go with something heavier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by faninfl Perfect little silk undershirt!
Living in central FL these are rarely called for; however, we've had some bitter cold weather lately and these are fantastic. I have never worn "long underwear" so I didn't know what to expect. Was I ever surpassed at how comfortable these are. I love them!

Just what I was looking for, something skin tone to wear under lighter weight sweaters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SeriousShopperSandy Silk Pointelle Scoopneck
Very comfortable. Lightweight & thin. I actually bought this to sleep in because I get so cold. Runs true to size. I have washed it in the washing machine with cold water without a problem. I wouldn't recommend the dryer. For lightweight coverage I would recommend this top. It works for me and I like it!
