Rated 5 out of 5 by Glissando Wonderful Design
This bathing suit has so much going for it! The design is a classic but updated with the empire lines. It fits beautifully and whats more, it is comfortable. I know I will not be self-conscious in this bathing suit. In addition to great style, it is made so well and will hold up to an active day by the pool or on the beach. You thought of everything with this suit.

Thank you, LLBean! Someone clearly put some thought into this design. It has a firming spandex underneath the dress in nude so it actually looks like a cute 2 pc. It's a lovely suit and I can't wait to wear it to the beach or pool.

I have never written a review before, but I am so pleased with this suit that I wanted to rave about it. Finally, I have found a swimsuit that I can feel comfortable in. It fits well, is flattering, and offers just the right amount of coverage. Thank you, LL Bean!

Rated 5 out of 5 by llbeanershopaholic Beautiful swimsuit for most body types!
I took a chance with this swimsuit. They did not offer it in D cup (HINT) size, so I ordered the regular 14. I am normally 36/38 DD and size 12 across all brands. The 14 fit well and was super cute, thought my bust just barely fits! If I was any larger in that area, I don't think this swimsuit would work. I would have my bust popping out the sides! It fit me well, but not great (that's my fault, not the swimsuits!). I highly recommend it, beautifully constructed.

Rated 2 out of 5 by manaka Too short, bust line too low
I wanted a swim dress that covers my bum & keeps cleavage to a minimum.
This one feel short & I'm only 5'4".
It barely covers my bum (the under pants can be seen from the back) & the front of the suit sits pretty low, barely covering my boobs (yes, I know it can be adjusted. No, it's of no use).
It also make my tummy look big even though I have a waist of 29".

Rated 5 out of 5 by newmominlaw Finally a suit that fits!!
I just received my new swimsuit today and absolutely love it! As is LL Bean's trademark, this is very high quality, a perfect fit and a very flattering style. I'm actually looking forward to wearing it at the beach in front of people!

Rated 5 out of 5 by peargirl I didn't think I'd ever feel 'cute' in a swimsuit
This suit is quality. Very well constructed and design well thought out for a feminine figure. The fabric is soft and non-binding...even at the leg openings. Fit my 'pear' shape very well with full bottom coverage under the skirt and from the skirt itself. Although I'm at least 2 sizes smaller on top the top portion of the suit also fits well and provides great coverage. I didn't think it was possible to find a suit I wouldn't be pulling down after every step. Will be happily wearing it to the public pool for water-aerobics.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LLBeanBargainShopper05 Almost everything and then some!
Finally, a suit that I am comfortable wearing in public!
As a fifty something grandma who is beyond wearing bikinis, but still craves style, and who needs a long torso suit...I have finally found what I have been looking for.
The navy and white dot is one of my all time favorite prints. It is a classic while still drawing attention. The dots are subtle, as is the trim along the bodice, adding just enough interest to be called pretty and feminine. The padded bra is nice for a no show thru look. And the shoulder straps are adjustable allowing for a customized fit. For me the length could be 1/2 to 1 inch longer, but still a nice concealing length. The fabric has a nice feel and the design of the suit is very forgiving. (Conceals my extra bumps and bulges easier than a diet!) And the neck line is perfect too! (high enough so that it's not all hanging out when bending over with the grand kids, but low enough so that it doesn't look frumpy)
The only thing that could make this a better suit, in my opinion, is the addition of an underwire bra. While the cut of the top is much more supportive than other styles that I have tried, "my girls" like the added support that an underwire provides.
So, add an underwire and this suit is definitely a five star winner! Until then it is just one star short of being absolutely everything that I want in a swim suit.
Can't wait to hit the summer beaches and the waterpark! I will feel so confident in my new suit. Thanks LLBean for another great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by 1mountainlover Love it!
I received my new suit today and LOVE IT! I have a long torso so I ordered a long and it is so comfortable. I love the length of the skirt, the fabric, color (navy), everything about it. Will order another one in another color.

Rated 3 out of 5 by GreeT Really wanted it to fit!
This suit is so cute, I really wanted it to fit. If it works for your body type, I'm sure you will enjoy it. The quality appears to be up to LL Beans usual standards. I am short for my size, and the skirt hung halfway to my knees. Also, the leg openings were much too big. The seat fabric hung loosely down the back of my legs and showed way too much in the front (though hidden by the skirt). I loved the medium blue color and the skirt was not too full like some. Since it fit everywhere else, I don't think a smaller size would solve the problems for me. I will have to return for another style.
