Rated 1 out of 5áby njtraveler2 nice style but too big
I'm returning this because the bottom of the large top is at least 44 inches so it flares out from hip. Shame i have to return because i liked the styling around the neckline.

Rated 1 out of 5áby Bluefalcon Pima crossover top
It shrunk a lot. I've had this happen with many (or all) of ll bean Pima tops. Why can the Saturday cotton tee be unshrinkable and not the Pima cottons? All that's necessary is to pre-shrink the fabric before cutting. Very unhappy. Will return shirt & not buy in future. Very disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5áby VELVET007 LOVE LOVE THIS TOP
THIS TOP MAKES ME FEEL GOOD. HELPS MY SHOULDERS LOOK LARGER WHICH IN TURN MAKES MY HIPS LOOK SMALLER. I JUST ORDERED MY SECOND ONE. I TAKE A SIZE LARGE AND THE FIT IS PERFECT. I HAVE THE PINK AND NOW WILL HAVE THE COBALT BLUE. I AM 5 FOOT 5 IN. WEIGH 155 IF THAT HELPS ANYONE WITH SIZING.

Rated 3 out of 5áby Troika I purchased two
Loved the fabric, neckline and sleeve length: however, I found the length to be too short and I am short (5'2"). Also, the shirt does require ironing to keep the pleats looking neat and lying flat. I would not purchase again and I find I seldom wear these shirts because I do not like to get out the ironing board and iron. I think I would not mind as much about the ironing if they were longer and hit my hips at a more flattering place and I did not have to worry about my midsection showing if I reach or lean over. This is a shame because the fabric is lovely and very soft and the colors are really nice.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Carolee1945 Fantastic, but for a specific body build
I see the stars on this shirt range all over the map. I think the problem is that is is meant for a specific body build and for me, it is great. I am 68 with a large bust. I am not fat, but that bust makes me look dumpy. Well, the V neck slims my look. I am 5'6" so the length is just right. The pleated neckline is so complimentary, and it stayed perfect after washing. (but I cold washed and hung to dry) I have gotten so many compliments on this that I have ordered several in different colors. Bottom line, I feel good when I wear this with jeans.

Rated 5 out of 5áby rosieo76 Adorable Shirt
I disagree with the reviewer who stated this shirt should be longer....no way! An inch and a half longer would not look flattering. If you want a longer shirt, order a tunic! This shirt is classy and a longer look would ruin it.

Rated 2 out of 5áby VeraViolin Pleats are cute when they lie flat
Nice idea those neckline pleats; but they don't lie flat after a spin in the washer and dryer. Fabric is nicely weighted but needs to be longer to cover the tum- just an inch and a half more!

Rated 4 out of 5áby lizabethj2 Forget it, Petites
Thought I'd try this because it's a really classy-looking top and it seems to fall high-hip when you look at the photo, but, alas it is quite long on me and I'm 5'2". So, if you love the look but are a petite, it won't work. The fabric is stretchy so shortening would be very tricky. Loved it otherwise. Nice fit through the bust and shoulders; flattering neckline.

Rated 5 out of 5áby QualityShopper Hooray! No returns!
Bought the sun and rose colors which are vivid and lovely. Yes, like many noted, the pleated collar does not lay flat after washing; a real disappointment but when a top fits as perfect as this one does, I'll iron. Yikes! Can't believe I said that. Ordered my normal size; the shoulders and sleeve length fit perfectly. Too often a 3/4 sleeve fits me like a long sleeve which shrunk a little and shoulders rarely fit like they should! Trying to decide which other colors to buy.
