Rated 5 out of 5 by Bethany from Perfect lightweight cardigan I spent a lot of time looking for a lightweight non-sweater/sweatshirt cardigan that I can travel with, and easily stash in my bag (which, ironically despite living in Maine I overlooked LLBean for a while!) This is perfect! Its just enough drape and length over the bum but without excess material to make you look frumpy. Ideal for transitional season weather and AC in the summer. For additional reference I also purchased the Pima Open Cardigan With Rib Trim and while I'm keeping that as well, I like this one better as it is a little more fitted and less casual than the rib trim, though the rib trim is longer over the bum.

Rated 3 out of 5 by stgcrm999 from Almost First of all - Thank you! Thank you! for carrying Petite XS. LLBean is one of the few places I can find clothes. Love these Pima cardigans for year round office casual or jeans wear. I like pockets anytime, and feel so-so about the split back. But I'm returning this one because of the stitching down the front. On the mauve berry, the thread doesn't match too well and looks like you're wearing it insideout. Matches better on the darker Royal Plum, but still. I'll try again next season, and try to order early since the colors I like always sell out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dbdunston from I love this jacket It just arrived, and I immediately ordered two more in different colors - with coordinating tee. 1. The pima cotton drape is perfect. It's a nice soft jacket but not shapeless. 2. The length is perfect. Not too long, not t0o short. The bottom hits at the first joint on my thumb. 3. The fit is a bit generous, but not overly so. I usually wear an XL; occasionally an L. I ordered L and it fits perfectly. 4. Bean's pima cotton is the best. It holds up to washing and is comfortable to wear.

Rated 1 out of 5 by illinoisretirednurse from Split back not attractive I have and love the pima open cardigan from past years, and wanted to order another color. What a disappointment to find that the back is now split. It even looks unattractive on the model. I'll try one of last year's that is still in stock. Unfortunately only misses are left; I wear a petite. I will wait for next year's iteration, which I hope will not have a split back.

Rated 3 out of 5 by malenkya from Meh I was hoping this would replace an old Lands End cardigan jacket that I wore to death.It doesn't. The fabric is thin, very much like Bean's t-shirts (which I do love). If I put it over a knit or woven shirt it sticks and wrinkles when it should hang straight; I would give it more stars if the fabric were more substantial. The front opening is quite wide (and I'm quite flat-chested) so it's not very useful for warmth, and there are no buttons. I kind of like the waist seam and back opening; they add a bit of much-needed style. Bottom line: I'd find this a useful, versatile top layer if (a)the fabric were heavier, (b) the front closed all the way and (c) it had buttons or some other closure.

Rated 1 out of 5 by sargarrett from Returning I just received this in white. Disappointed that the split back has been added. The original style with smooth back was much more slimming and flattering. The split back is too high and doesn't lay flat causing it to fly open when wearing. Not attractive. Sadly will be returning. Please bring back original style.

Rated 5 out of 5 by norsekate from Beautiful Cardigan I like the fabric, the style and fit of this cardigan. Usually, I wear an XL in LL Bean clothing, but I bought the L and it fits well (5’7”, 170). It has nice details, and though it’s a relaxed fit, this cardigan is stylish and not shapeless at all. The cuffs are not fitted, but it doesn’t bother me, though they could be tapered to the wrist a bit more. It’s not a deal-breaker because the cardigan is so lovely otherwise.

Rated 1 out of 5 by marybearsbeppy from I'm Appalled My anticipation turned to disappointment when I just now opened this item! Oh, my! Sleazy material, not at all like the many beautiful tees I've gotten from you... Horrible cut and design, not vaguely worthy of the LLBean name... Muddy color... How COULD you?! I'm going to wash it, later... If it shrinks, it goes back to LLBean, with a tsk, tsk! If it doesn't shrink, I'll keep it to use as a bed jacket, a smooth light layer over my supima cotton sleeping layers... I'll plan to sew one or two buttons or snappers onto the front piece, to keep things ship shape... I surely wouldn't want to wear this item outside, anywhere, and be seen in it... All I can do, right now, though, is repeat: How COULD you?! This one takes the cake for mistake... Please stick to your basic values!!!!! b.c.
