Rated 3 out of 5 by marypr2 Didn't Fit Like the Old One
I bought this top to replace a beloved one that had faded. Anyway, I bought the new beansport suit pieces to replace what I had, and both the tops and bottoms are way skimpier. I have lost weight since I bought my first set, particularly in the top, yet the one size down is uncomfortably tight in the wrong places. Other people might wear their suits tight like this, but I'm too modest. The skirt I had to keep at the same size as before despite my weight loss, and that is skimpier than the former as well. I think these suits are relying on less suit and more lycra. I you don't want to highlight your tummy, get a size up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by rosie247 great fit
I love this top. This is the second one I have bought from Bean. But after 2 years, the elastic in the shelf bra disintegrates. I had to toss my previous, beautiful lime green top, and now a black one; I have ordered a new black one but knowing it won't last more than 2 years. I am careful to wash them out after each swim, never put them in a drier, etc., and yet the elastic gives out. I have swim wear from other companies which lasts for many years, yet I keep ordering this top from Bean because it is the best fitting and the best looking. It's a little longer than others so stays down, the cut and shape is great, and it's very comfortable. I will keep getting these tops in spite of the elastic problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NOCAfan all day comfort
comfortable and modest to wear all day even around town with crop pants to slip over the swimsuit bottoms. I followed the chart and got 2 different sizes in the top and bottom and both are perfect. The sizing chart doesn't lie! Only problem for me is that the top could be about an inch shorter but I am also under 5 feet.

Rated 2 out of 5 by ocean Same as last season.
The print on this tankini top is a nice combination of shades, and it's a good swim top for those who want more of a tank top style. However, it's the same style as last year's BeanSport Tankini top, not particularly becoming for small figures, just another tank top style. The fabric is certainly substantial enough without the inside lining, and the lining only makes the top much too thick for hot weather, and takes too long to dry. Already had one of this style from last year and didn't need another! LL Bean needs more selection in their swimwear, nice prints, cami straps, and becoming styles!

Thank you, LLBean, for offering Women's sizes. But women of size need undergarment support. The bras in these swim tops are ridiculous for most women of any size, let alone a plus size woman. Needs a redesign. Returning both purchases.

Totally didn't understand that this was just a tankini top...not a complete bathing suit. That information should be crystal clear somewhere in your discription. Clearly, I'm disappointed.

Rated 2 out of 5 by KtownGranny Scoopneck Geo Tankini Just OK
Bought this in hopes it would provide the quality I have come to expect from LLBean, but the fit is odd and I am returning it. The top/bra was a bit loose, but gave good coverage. The major problem, though, was that from bust to waist hem the top absolutely billowed--almost like an A-line tent. If I ever got in the water with it, the bottom hem would have been immediately at my neck. I am exchanging it for another top in a different style and hope that one fits better.

Please offer this style next year! It is the perfect fit for my small frame and small bust size.

Purchased this top to wear with the swim bottoms. Love it. Very comfortable, true to size, and ample support. Would definitely buy in other colors.

I love this suit. The bottom material is very stretch, in a good way ... and the top fits perfect . The length comes long enough to have top and bottom blend together . I got it in coral and will probably do blue to keep for next summer.
