Rated 5 out of 5 by texasreviewer Like it!
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 2 out of 5 by gdmeadows Too short
From the pictures I thought this top would work out really well. I am tall and longer through the body but this is ridiculous. It does not even come close to "falling at the hip". It hits at my belly button which is covered by the swim shorts, but looks odd. sigh.. I will be sending it back :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by msmoo I love this tankini top!
I have bought suits from another catalog company in years past but was very disappointed in their selection this year and I am so glad I checked LL Bean! The top fits true to size. I often feel like I have to size up in bathing suits but the 12 fit me perfectly. I ordered cobalt and black and bottoms to match and am keeping both of them! I am 50 and I feel like it is very appropriate and very comfortable. I haven't swam in them yet though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by frostygoth Very comfortable
This is the first time I've tried an LLBean swim top and I am in love! The material is nice and thick, and the bra lining is very comfortable. There is not a lot of extra material hanging down such that when you're standing/sitting in water, like during water aerobics or in a hot tub, it flies up. I like how thick the straps are too. The fit does run small, though. I had to exchange for the next size up despite the fact that I used the sizing chart with my bust measurement. But the return process is fast and easy and now with the right size I'm enjoying wearing the top.

Rated 5 out of 5 by kitcarson Love LL Bean's Tankini Tops
I've purchase this Tankini Top for 2 yrs now and love them!! I will be buying more this season, I just can't decide on colors yet. I'm 5 ft - 3-1/2" and 135 - these are THE best! They fit really well and I found to be true to size. I wear mine with the lined shorts and was very comfortable for swimming all day in, sitting poolside or walking on the beach. We went to Hawaii and I received alot of compliments on where I got my suit. Also, the prices are very reasonable - you won't be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MrsRita Love the tankini
The fit is perfect. I am petite, small shoulders, small back but big sisters and I finally found a well constructed and pretty suit that feels comfortable and looks flattering. And I appreciate the quality. I will be placing another order now that I have finally found my brand.

Rated 4 out of 5 by meredevice a little large in the 26
I'm 5'10" and 240 so I went with the 26 which is what I get at other swim places on-line, but this does run a little larger than I'm used to. I'm a C cup and this could easily accommodate a D so that could be good news for someone. The neckline puckers a little on me so that tells me it has more give for a little more ta-ta but the soft bra is comfy and sticks to me ok.
Another review said the fabric is heavy: well, the entire front is lined, so I guess you could carefully snip that out if you like. The back is not lined and the fabric is perfectly normal for a good quality ladies suit.
The mid-section is also a little generous in size and between that and the lining, yes, as other reviewers have mentioned, it does float up in the water a bit if you're bobbing around upright. Actually swimming it shouldn't be a problem.
On land and dry it does provide nice coverage and length and doesn't fit like plastic wrap, nice if you don't have six pack abs.
If you're borderline on size, you may want to go down a size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DawnMA Absolutely Love These
I find the fit flattering and partnered with the skirted bottom looks great. I am in swim therapy and find the two pieces are comfortable, wear well and allow ease of movement during all the exercises. I would highly recommend these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by niffer great top
For me, 5'3" 175 pounds, this top is great. I ordered the 18W and it fits nicely. Others wrote about how the top comes up in the water. What I like about this top is that it is looser around the midriff (compared to other tankini tops). It's snug, yet falls so that the unsightly fat rolls are not as noticeable. It's the most flattering bathing top I have ever had. It doesn't look like a suit designed for an overweight person. I was skeptical that it would work for me. It is the most flattering tankini top I have ever had. The bra inside is sturdy, but still comfortable. There are no underwires or girdle constrictions as there are in many one piece suits. The cover up of the top is good. I feel very comfortable wearing this.
