Rated 5 out of 5 by murph1201 Not your ordinary hoodie...it's delightful!
Sounds like an odd adjective to describe a "sweatshirt"- but this is anything but...The lining is the softest, most plush fleece- like your favorite stuffed animal...and the outer fabric is softly brushed. I purchased the green- a subtle, neutral, season spanning color. This would make a wonderful gift for a woman of any age...starting with teens. It will definitely become my go to jacket!

Rated 1 out of 5 by HatesColdFeet Great....if you're shaped like a box
Shaped like no other sweatshirt I've ever had!! It is VERY boxy. I'm 5'7", 140 lbs. and always wear Medium. Based on many reviews I ordered a size up to gain a little room and length. The chest/shoulders were ok and the sleeves long enough. The weight and thickness are nice.
BUT, the the princess seaming is a waste and is lost in the boxiness of the construction. The bottom band is SO BIG that the sweatshirt just hangs very loosely, allowing air to blow right up your waist. The band needs to be about 5-6 inches smaller. I doubt that going back down to medium will conquer that issue.
Not worth the money, even on sale Back it goes...

Rated 5 out of 5 by llbeanershopaholic Comfy and versatile
Nice, heavy-duty sweatshirt that I use as a jacket in 50 degree weather. It's thick and cozy. I am size 12, and ordered one medium and one large. The medium has a fitted look, the large is a nice relaxed look. I wear them frequently, the quality is very good, and the zipper is pretty heavy duty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by travellllller My new favorite sweat jacket- order a size up
I was jealous of the child sized fleece jacket that my son had from LL BEAN so when I saw that there was similar one for Women I scooped it up. It is soooo soft on the inside- it is thick and heavy and cozy. I like the fact that the pockets have zippers, my son's child size jacket does not. He tried on my XL coat and it was a great fit on him (he currently wears a child size 18) so I might actually order him one in the gray for next year since his is getting wayyy too short because it is a child length and he has maxed out on the child sizes and the men's sizes swollow him. With that being said- I normally wear a size LARGE but I ordered an XL because I didn't want it to be too form fitting. It is a good thing that I did because it shrank and is now more form fitting. If they ever put this on sale I will probably buy several colors. I bought the Purple orchard color and it is almost a pink color. I actually like what it looks like in person more than I did online. Just a reminder- the fluff does not run down the arms- the arms are just regular material. It is a great jacket. I love it! (would love to see it in Solid Black!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by evgeneia Love it!
I purchased this when it was the recent 2 a day daily markdown sale and got a great price. Probably wouldn't have ordered it at full price because of the shorter length and banded bottom.
That said, I'm SO glad I purchased this! It's incredibly soft inside with the fleece lining. Like another reviewer mentioned, it feels like stuffed animal!
Like other reviewers mentioned--order a size up for a roomy, comfortable fit. I'm pear shaped and not normally comfortable with banded bottoms because they can draw attention to my widest parts. I prefer longer jackets that cover the hips. But this jacket is very flattering! I'm 5'6 and wear a size large.
I got the Mallard Blue which is more like navy--was hoping for something a little bit brighter, but it's fine. The sleeve length is perfect my my shorter arms, east to put 1 roll at the cuff.
My only regret is that I wish I ordered this last fall so I could wear it in the cool weather! It's warming up quickly here in Atlanta--and it'll see limited use until next fall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by neerondogs Best Hoodie Ever!
I originally bought 2 of these and have come back for an additional 3 more. They are the best hoodies I have ever owned, and I have had many. The fleece lining is soft and makes you feel warm and relaxed, no matter what the weather is. I sometimes wear them to sleep and they keep me warm and comfortable all night. They run a bit small, so I would suggest sizing up one size for the most accurate fit. Can't say enough good things about this product. Get one!

Rated 4 out of 5 by SaskatchewanGal Woman's Fleece Hoodie
I have 3 llBean fleece vests, which have kept me toasty warm during our frigid Canadian winters. I decided to buy a hoodie when they came on sale, as I wanted the fleece warmth with sleeves. I purchased "darkest violet" (beautiful colour) and a size Large (I am a size 12). The sleeves are a little long, but can be rolled up at the cuff. The "body" & hood are lined with the lovely warm fleece, and the sleeves are warm. While the vests have a zipper that goes up right under the chin (and keeps my neck warm - ok, I'm old!), the hoodie does not, so I need to wear a scarf to cover the opening from the top of the zipper to the hood. The hood is a lovely fleece, but does not have "ties" to pull it shut. Aside from those two issues (which hopefully LLBean can recify in the future), it is a lovely hoodie and will continue to get me through this cold winter under my winter jacket.

Rated 1 out of 5 by 24609lady Wishing for a hooded hip length jacket ...
I wanted this because it it more than just a sweatshirt jacket. Most styles/sizes seem to be for the "teen" age people or you have to be so small to want this style. Sorry, I would like to have all the features but at least cover to the bend of my leg. This barely comes below the waist...just not for an older lady I guess. Also, I like a little extra room to an outer wear garment...not so tight over my tops. It's hard to please everybody!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LCHmom Perfect!!!
I wanted a sweatshirt that was a little warmer so I ordered this one. After reading the reviews, I was a little worried about the size. I'm 5'2" and 120 lbs. and I got the medium. It fit perfect! The length was perfect and the fit was great. I tried it on with a t-shirt, but still had room for a thicker shirt if I wanted. It's not snug and the bottom hangs straight down, it doesn't hug my hips, but it's not baggy either. I got the darkest violet color and it's really nice...it looks just like the picture. The fabric is very soft and the lining is extremely warm and soft. I did not think the sweatshirt was too heavy as stated by other reviews. If you're looking for a warmer sweatshirt, this one is for you....it's perfect!!
