Rated 4 out of 5 by bosshossgirl Good Coverage
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.

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 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.

I have been looking for a bathing suit top to go with a black swim skirt I already own. I don't find most bathing suits comfortable or appealing to my age group. However, this top fits great, looks great and I received excellent customer service at the LL Bean flagship store in Freeport. The store did not have my size in the color I wanted.The sales clerk suggested I order it, which he did for me right at the register. I received it at my house 5 days later. It is so nice to experience great service from people that clearly love their job. Thanks!

I ordered for self and daughter. I was so excitedwhen the pkg arrived, so sure I would look really good. NO
The color was amazingly gorgeous in cobalt. I ordered a size 20. The bra fit, but the item from there to bottom of the top was really big, and I am really big. I am 5'6" 185 lbs Naked I look like I am 8 months pregnant. I spend a lot of time trying to hide my front. Maybe I should go to Maternity shops.
This top was like an A-line dress and did not look good. LLBean tanks (one-piece suits) are beautiful and fit me just fine, even if they do not hide my pg looking front. With a cover-up I look just fine when I get out of pool.
So, That does it, no more 2piece swim suits for me.
I will return this item. I truly appreciate LLBean's return policy.
Otherwise I could not shop on-line. You shop on line and cannot really tell if you will love it till you try it on. Usually you try item on and love it and keep it, but if not you can return with a full refund.
LL Bean is fantastic in this department. Thanks LL Bean !

Rated 4 out of 5 by LLBeanNeedsaStoreInMichig good fit
This is the first tankini I've purchased, and I think I'm going to like it a lot. haven't had a chance to try it in the water yet, but the fit is comfortable. perhaps a little light on coverage but not thin. no pulling or stretching to get it on. would be nice to have more of a color choice.

The BeanSport tank-style tankini top is just what I was looking for, great for water sports, and times when a more modest tankini is needed. I was very pleased with the new cobalt Medallion Print, as well as finding that my usual size 10 has not changed in fit, as some other tankini tops have. While I typically prefer cami-straps, this top is good for the other times, and even nice enough to wear as a vacation tank top! I have not had the opportunity to try it out in the water yet, but it seems about the same as the previous style. Thanks LLBean for keeping something the same, and more choice of prints would be appreciated!

Rated 5 out of 5 by oklip955 modest top
I ordered the 12 and it was too big, I reordered the 10 and it fits great. I wore it swimming at the fitness center yesterday and it worked great for me. I wanted something that would not show cleavage and yet was stylish, I paired it with some swim bottoms that I already had to make a nice modest swim suit. Thanks for making something for the rest of us.
