Women's Bean's Layering Tank is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 85.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nicely fitted I wasn't sure which size might fit me in this layering tank, so I ordered both L and XL (I'm 5'6", 165, fairly small busted) and the L fits perfectly. I intend to wear these under sweaters and shirts and not by themselves, most likely. The fabric is quite thin, the length low hip, so it can be scrunched if desired, and my bra straps are covered. Wish there were more colors, but maybe in the spring/summer there will be. I'm building up my stash of basics after losing weight, so I need these -- I also run cooler than I used to so I need an additional layer more often than before. These seem high quality and the light gray heather is very comfortable. Great value on sale!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Tank Please never discontinue!!! This is the perfect layering tank! I have many tanks from LL Bean (and other stores) which I wear alone or to layer, year around, and these are BY FAR THE BEST I OWN! Neckline is high enough to conceal cleavage, but not so high it can’t be worn with a variety of necklines. It is sturdy material but not so thick as to be bulky and has great stretch and is long enough that I don’t get cold from it riding up. I have 3 of these and plan to get some more but I see white is now sold out. I wish I had gotten more than just one. Please, please never discontinue!!! Please keep them EXACTLY the same!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Always good, always versatile I have these and similar tanks in various colors. They are true to size, comfortable, wash well, last long. I use them year round. In the cold weather I use them as a base layer for a knit longsleeve shirt and sweater, whatever keeps me warm. (No bra needed, in my case at least!) In warm weather I wear them under a lightweight button-down shirt and I am good to go! They can be worn alone as they are fairly substantial in weight and the armpits are not too loose, but a lot depends on the shirt color and the pointiness of your nipples. AND the attractiveness of your upper arms!!! AND the situation - if you're out gardening or cutting down trees, who cares?! They are comfy!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from too long and flimsy From years past, I have somewhere around 8 LL Bean tanks. They were sturdy material with wide shoulder straps. This current tank, gray, is much thinner material, the edges around the armholes curl and the shoulder straps are too narrow. Also, it is so long that it comes to the top of my thighs. I bought it on sale and I don't want to pay to ship it back, so I'm keeping it to clean the house in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit The extra long length is a bonus. Doesn’t shrink, even when dried in the dryer. During the lockdown, these shirts became my undershirt which I wore everyday in lieu of tight, constricting foundational undergarments. Lots of comfort, lots of stretch. Didn’t need to go to a plus size. The XL is perfect. I’m a large-sized, short woman and these were perfect for me. A great layering tank - just what I needed when I had to work from home during COVID-19.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed in quality and new design I have at least 10 of the these that I wear under sweaters , shirts and hoodies and have loved them -that is until my new purchase arrived. The new style is a much lighter weight fabric , not as good recovery on the stretch ,larger, longer and poorly designed banding around the neck and sleeves. The old style and fabric was so much nicer in everyway. On the plus side- they do have so pretty colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I wear these tanks 24/7 I don't usually write reviews, but I wanted to give a "shout out" about the llbean layering tanks. I have been wearing these tanks for almost 10 years. I even still have the ones that came with the shelf bra! I wear them under pajamas at night and shirts or blouses every day. They are not only comfortable, but also make whatever I wear over them look smoother. These tanks were called "unshrinkable tanks" for a while and they always sold out quickly, so I'd grab them in any color that was available. Then, suddenly, about 2 years ago they disappeared from the llbean website/catalogue and were replaced with thin sleeveless tees (definitely not tanks!) with absolutely no stretch in the fabric. I resigned myself to wearing the "old" ones that I already had, despite some of them being rather worn out. Then, about a month ago, I got an llbean catalogue and there were my much-loved tanks! They were now called "layering tanks," but they were my old favorites! I quickly bought four (that's all that I could afford right now) and am as happy as can be!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Quality tank tops. Very comfortable and perfect to wear under summer or winter shirts as well as sweaters, or just by themselves. The tops are long and stay tucked in to my pants nicely. The tops are stretchy and soft but retain their shape really well. I have bought 4 in different colors and actually plan to buy 2 more. They are a winner for me.
