Soft Cotton Rugby is rated out of 5 by 387.
Rated 5 out of 5 by JCM03 from Great shirt As other reviewers have noted the material on this rugby is thinner than the rugbies of yore. I don't find that to be a bad thing at all, as I tend to over-heat even in the winter. I did go a size up as some have recommended. I am 5'6 about 175 with a bra size of 38DDD and carry all my weight in my belly. The XL fits with enough room to wear a tee underneath. I could see how the collar could bother some, which I was worried about for myself, but I must have a tall enough neck. The material is soft enough that I don't mind it brushing my chin occasionally. Came back to buy another and decided to leave this review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cosmosmom from Very nice! This shirt is the perfect weight for that in-between time of year when mornings are cool and afternoons get warm. I normally wear a petite large in a button-down shirt, but ordered a petite XL in this, as it is slightly fitted. It is a great fit and just roomy enough. I machine washed it and removed it from a low-heat dryer still damp, and hung to finish drying. No shrinking, and no need to iron. I bought the navy, and love it with the denim trim. The shirt is well-made, comfortable, and easy care. What's not to love? Oh, and it is slimming to boot! Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BlueberryCarolyn from Favorite L.L.Bean Shirt EVER! I have been shopping at LLBean for years, and this is, by far, my favorite shirt from them! This shirt fits and looks great, and I basically go from wearing it, to washing and waiting for it to be done drying, to wearing it again. I really don't want to take it off...ever! You definitely want to make sure you consult your measurements and where they fall on the LLBean sizing chart. The reason: this is a cotton shirt, so there is some slight shrinking after the first machine dry. According to measurements I am an XL at LLBean, which this shirt is. It fits as advertised, with some shaping, but not snug. I will be buying more!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Birddog from Great Shirt, but Lose the Logo! This Rugby Shirt fits true to size - it's the first time I've ordered a size small from LLBean and it hasn't been huge. It fits perfectly in the body, arms (+ length of arms), and hem length. The weight is great and the fabric is so soft. I loved it so much I ordered another color! The only thing I don't like about it is the huge logo. Please consider making it smaller, embroidering your name in a matching shirt color, or remove it all together (the buttons already say LLBean!). I think I could wear this shirt more often, even in more formal settings, if the logo was modified or removed. Otherwise, thanks for making a wicked cool shirt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CherOhMy from Soft Cotton Rugby, Misses Pet Small! Soft Cotton Rugby Top, Misses Pet Small, Navy is a dream top. Fabric is so soft, excellent quality, every detail is perfect. One of my favorite Bean tops. I will get so much use of this Rugby & the Striped version too! I would definitely recommend this top to anyone looking for a soft well made beautiful top. All I need now is cooler weather in Florida, can't wait to start wearing all of my new LLB tops & slacks! Love LLB, thank you so much for all of the excellent service & merchandise, have a good day! Oh, others have commented on the Logo for LLB, I wear that proudly for the history of such an awesome company!!! Thank You So Much!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LoveMyMichiganLife from Perfect Everything This is my new go-to favorite. COMFORTABLE! Weight: Lighter than a sweatshirt, more substance than a t-shirt. Fit: True to size. I am 5'9", average build, with broader shoulders and usually wear a Medium, but sometimes end up with a Large due to height/shoulders. No need with this top - a Medium fits perfect. The fabric and construction are high quality, and the style is both classic and classy. I purchased the Navy, and the color is a true (not washed out) Navy. Did I mention this is my new go-to favorite? Bonus: Tried on in store to ensure size, but store didn't have size in Navy - they ordered for me at the register and I had it delivered to my door in just a few days. Thanks L.L. Bean!

Rated 4 out of 5 by NoCAwalkergal from Funny sizing/fit Just got my back ordered (4/30) beach glass top, & tried it on over a thin tee. (XL Misses, after reading all the reviews) Arms & sleeves fine, as is "sweep" width at hip. Bust is probably 2" too loose & length is 2-3" too long (covers my rear.) I am 5'5", 163 lbs,bust 38D, hips 40. If I reorder a Petite to correct the length the arms/sleeves will be short. If I order a L it will still be too long & sleeves may be too narrow & short. If it shrinks, it may be perfect! Beautiful color, well made, got it to wear over tees w/ any number of Bean pants, especially my new madras sand dollar color longer shorts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nolani from Absolutely perfect I don’t know why everyone is complaining about the logo! The logo only makes this shirt that much better. It reminds me of Patagonia’s logo and placement, which I am also very fond of. Proud to be advertising a great company! That aside, the shirt is absolutely perfect! Perfect fit, great buttons, great colors! I am 5’7” and 125 lbs and I got a small and it’s already my new favorite. If I wanted a loose fit I could go a size up but I’m happy with this more form fitting size. Can’t wait to order more! And hope you never remove the logo! With these high of ratings, don’t change a thing or you’ll be messing with magic!! Thanks!
