Rated 1 out of 5 by TEEBOX1776 scoopneck tankini top
I ORDERED TWO TOPS IN SIZE 12; BLACK, AND BRILLIANT BLUE, FOR A FAMILY VACATION IN ALABAMA.
THE COLORS ARE NICE, BUT THE MATERIAL IS HEAVY, AND HOT. AS SOON AS THE TOP IS WET, IT FLOATS UP TO YOUR BUST AND/OR SHOULDERS. WE RODE BOOGIE BOARDS A LOT, AND PLAYED IN THE WATER EVERY DAY. I WORE THE BLACK TOP TWICE, AND FINALLY GAVE UP. I NEVER WORE THE BRILLIANT BLUE. UNFORTUNATELY, I WILL BE RETURNING BOTH TOPS. I REALLY HOPED THIS TOP WOULD WORK FOR ME.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mexicobound Nice sporty suit
I'm disappointed that I didn't make this purchase sooner because by the time I purchased it, they were out of my size. I bought a size up hoping that it would work, but it was too large. I was thinking of keeping it and making some alterations myself because I liked it so much, but decided that would be a bad idea. This suit would be nice for the beach - it's very easy to wear.

I had to agree with those who found the tankini top bulky and not really comfortable to swim in. If you are anything more than a 'splash around in the water' kind of person then you would probably want something a bit more fitted - certainly less fabric. But for a 'women of a certain age' this top with swim shorts is about the best you can do to try and hide until you can duck under water! And trying to get a rash guard over the tankini is a forget it...just too much bulk!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Groundhogwrangler THE STRIPES DON'T MATCH
Didn't use the product because the stripes don't match. Not the look I was going for. And you should mention that fact in the product description as that would eliminate the whole ordering/returning process.

This top is very comfortable, looks good, provides good coverage and just in general is a great swim top. Fit was true to size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by kaycee45 solid tankini top
This is a solid piece, well made, with a supportive built in soft-cup bra. It is versatile - I bought it to go with dolphin short bottoms I bought elsewhere. I ordered size 8 - I wear a 36C - and the 8 fit perfect. A 10 would have been too big. I might have liked a little bit higher neck - but this provided adequate coverage, revealed no cleavage, appropriate for my age.

I received my size 14 top. I am about 150 lbs. 5.6". I almost always wear a 14 swim top. It is refreshing to find a top that is not tight in the hips. It may even be a little too big. I am 58 years old. Don't like tight swimwear. I went ahead and ordered a 12 to see if it might fit a little better. I have not received it yet. I will keep one or the other. This top gives nice coverage. I am small busted. There is a little bit too much room in the bust. I will write another post when I get my size 12. I would say this swim top runs just a little big. Still a great top. Have not got it wet yet.

I like the cut of this top. . . It's youthful and sporty and covers! I have this print and matching cobalt swim shorts, and the stripe brilliant blue top with their brilliant swim skirt. They are interchangeable! I am 123 lbs and curvy. An 8 was perfect in all pieces.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FigsAhoy Terrific Top
I finally found a tank-top styled tankini. It's so hard to get a simple top that fits well and is age appropriate. I've been debating on whether to purchase this because normally I am between an 8 and 10. I took a chance and ordered the 10 after reading other reviews. I'm a 36 chest and weigh 130. The top is perfect. My plan is to use it while I'm walking the beach or boating. The fit is perfect and the top is modest but pretty for an upcoming Florida vacation.

Rated 3 out of 5 by FloridaRosie Not right for me
I was hoping to layer this tankini top over a swim bra. (I have a 45 in. bust, which unfortunately for me most regular swimsuits cannot accommodate.) Although I like the stripe pattern and the fabric seems like typical LLBean quality, the overall shape is all wrong. It is extremely wide, sort of an A-shape, which made me look like a barrel...or pregnant. I could have sized-down, but decided to just pass on it since a smaller size would have been way too tight for my chest.
