Rated 5 out of 5 by stonecold from Innovative Fluffy Fleece Most fluffy fleeces have some sort of smooth, but not soft liner-this one is fluffy on the inside. I got the cream color-very pretty with my blond hair. I like the elastic bindings at the waist and wrists that block wind and make me look slender at the waist. I tried on several sizes in the store. Normally I am a large, but this was too big and I sized down to a medium at 5'4" 156 pounds. The zippered pockets are always great for times you don't want to carry a purse.The design reminds me of L.L.Bean fleece I wore in the 1990's with those nice elastic wrists and button up collars.Reminds me of being in college again...throwback....

Rated 4 out of 5 by CaseyW from Very warm, very cute! I bought this for a trip to Canada this winter. I absolutely love this. It’s SO soft and incredibly warm. I wore it with a cotton long sleeved shirt underneath and got hot a few times, so it definitely keeps you warm. It’s sizing is true to size, but be aware that it is a little tight/restrictive through the bust/shoulders. I tried sizing up to get a more slouchy feel and it was far too large, so I just kept my small. It’s definitely not uncomfortable, just would’ve given it 5 stars if it had a little more room for comfort and were a little longer through the torso. Overall though, I’m very glad I purchased this and would definitely recommend it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Pink from Shedding Constantly The shedding is unacceptable. I loved this pullover right away. The color is beautiful and fit true to size. However, it began shedding the first time I wore it. I washed it per instructions twice and the shedding continues to worsen. Everything has pink fuzz on it! I couldn’t wait to get home from work to get this pullover off. I have other L.L. Bean clothing that I love, but this is a big disappointment. Please do not buy this item. It is very frustrating to pay this much for something that begins shedding on the first wear. I do not write reviews, but I do not want anyone else to waste their money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Writergirrrrrl from Sooooo soft and squishy Just arrived and I love it. Truly VERY soft and buttery and lovable. It's nothing like the mountain pile fleece. That one's more rough and tumble, this is cuddly. I ordered this in July because I knew it would sell out by fall. I'm a 5'4" and a size 16-18 with a large bust. I ordered the Petite XL and it fits well. The only comment I would make to help you is there's not a lot of layering room, it fits quite snug. I'm happy though. Sleeve length and body length is good. A keeper. Lastly, ordered the grey and blue. True to the photos (on a MacBook Air, anyway). Pleased with my purchase. Haven't washed it yet, arrived today. But when I do, I'll wash in cold and hang to dry to preserve the cuddle factor.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ashers from Love the Color! I got the Loden/Eucalyptus, and I’m in love with the color! It’s more of a rich hunter/forest green and less a brown-green, which I’m happy about. I normally wear a petite XS, but I ordered a petite S because I wanted it to be oversized. It fits exactly as I imagined it would. I just wore it for 2 hours today and got compliments from several teenagers (I’m a teacher). The only issue I’ve noticed is that the back of collar doesn’t fold down well when you fold the front. Is it supposed to be that way? Will it relax over time? It’s not a deal breaker, but it is a bit weird. Overall, I’m happy with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JAS16 from Dreamily soft This pullover is the stuff dreams are made of. It is so soft and so warm that I never want to take it off. I feel like a majestic polar bear ready to take on whatever winter can throw at me. Frankly, I'm impressed that I exhibited enough self-restraint to leave the store with only one of these magical fleeces. I got the cream color, but I have my eye on the olive green one too. I will most definitely be living in this fleece once the temps dip. Buy one before I buy them all!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Amythegardener from Fantastic except for the uneven hem!! I got this in the faded eggplant in petite XL because I wanted something roomy but not so long that I felt smothered. The fleece was soft and I loved everything about it except when I put it on, the hem seemed uneven. I thought perhaps it was just my eyes, but then I took the garment off and the hem in the front is COMPLETELY UNEVEN. I do not see how this could have slipped by LL Bean’s quality control, but it also means I have to send the item back. Unbelievable to me that this could happen since I know LLB is a reputable company and I have many of their products. This one unfortunately was a loser. Hopefully the replacement will be better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LovesBeanInLenoir from Soft and Snuggly Bean's sizing is a little inconsistent now. In some of Bean's tops, vests, and pullovers, I wear an Extra-small, and in other tops, pullovers, etc, I wear a Small. I ordered a size Small in this fleece pullover thinking I might wear a tee or turtleneck underneath it. The shoulders are so closely fitted, I think I might be able to wear only a thin sleeveless camisole underneath it. Bust area & sleeve length are just right. It's really cozy, I love the olive green color, and I purchased it at 25% off, so I'm keeping it.
