Rated 5 out of 5 by MomMomMom Great suit
This is the 3rd Empire Swim Dress that I have owned. Obviously I like it because I keep buying it. It's fits true to size, I believe, and is very flattering. I don't mean to be immodest, but I think I look good in this! It hides what needs to be hidden without looking like an "old lady" bathing costume (no offense to any "old ladies" out there!) The skirt is just the right length and doesn't get in the way when you swim. It's not exactly inexpensive, but it's well worth the cost.

Leave it to LLBean! I'm always thrilled with my purchases through them; the only down side: NOTHING! Quick free delivery also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CJS1 An average lady
I am an average size woman who has a regular body, well maybe a little older and heavier than some but better than others. The swim suit is comfortable, covers well and looks good. I am bustier than many so I like the way it fits. This suit is true to size.

Really cute but the leg holes are way too big. Never had that problem before! I will be returning the suit.

Rated 2 out of 5 by MtnCycler Too low cut
I returned this suit because it is too low cut. Quality and color is good if you want to show cleavage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lzzy Great suit for someone in their 60's.
With a cruise scheduled in 10-days I was anxious due to being unable to locate a swimsuit, but thanks to LL Bean I can now enjoy my vacation. Wanting a suit suitable for my age, yet reflecting my better parts (since I'm not dead...if one understands what I mean) this suit is p-e-r-f-e-c-t. With the right support everywhere, and the right amount of cover-up, I highly underscore having no hesitation about ordering this suit. Whether you are petite or full figure, this suit does the job. One last thing, the quality is very high; you will love this suit!

Rated 5 out of 5 Flattering and forgiving and fabulous!
This swim suit is incredibly flattering and forgiving! Many swim dresses are quite frumpy, but this one is fabulous. It's modern in material but retro in style with the classic pattern of white dots against a navy background, and the scallop trim at the top of the empire waist couldn't be cuter. Instead of wanting to hide under my swim cover up, this suit makes me want to go to the beach right now!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Roduck Just not what I wanted
It was made well, arrived in timely fashion, ... And I was refunded my money ( minus $6.50 for UPS return label) in timely fashion ---
I returned it for two reasons:
1. I thought the color would be more of a powded blue -- but it was bright very BLUE blue
2. ( more importantly -- I would have lived with the color-- although not what I really wanted) -- it is ONE PIECE -- guess I didnt read description well enough? They even make it LOOK LIKE the 2 piece outfit I thought it was ---- ??!!!! --- where your skin would be ( abdomen) -- they have ( ugly) BEIGE material -- and, it seems like sort of spandex/ make you thinner girdle- ish --- not only ugly ( although the front skirt of suit is over top of it) --- but you still have that miserable One piece swimsuit issue to deal with in the bathroom that I was SOOO looking forward to avoiding with (what I mistakenly ) believed was a two piece suit--
So.... Not *really* theur fault.... But, it wasnt what I wanted / expected......( they handled the return well, however)

Rated 5 out of 5 by redpolkadot I've had this bathing suit for 5 years!
I absolutely LOVE this bathing suit. I found this in the store about 5 years ago and fell in love. Bathing suit shopping had always stunk for me as I like to be a bit on the modest side and I try and hide the extra curvy-ness of my tummy. This is my go to and I can move around and play in it with out worrying about a wardrobe malfunction. I get compliments on this all the time too! HIGHLY recommended.
