Rated 5 out of 5 by beanfanchicago Always a winner!
I have bought this bottom and top for several years. I spend a lot of time at the beach and pool in the summer, and I need a "go to" suit. This is the one. This bottom is so comfortable. It covers my behind just enough, and the skirt is not too full. The waistband is wide and holds in my tummy. The choice of colors allows me to mix and match. Keep this one, L.L. Bean!

Rated 1 out of 5 by MLB5684 Woman's is not the same straight skirt as misses.
Years ago, I bought the LLBean swim skirt that was similar to the picture of this. I LOVED it. I completely wore it out. I still can't bring myself to throw it away. I wear it at home.
I thought I was ordering the same skirt, back in June, when I ordered Woman's 22. I knew it would be big in the waist but I'd rather have the looser fit on my rear and I can take in the waist. I received one that is a full skirt that is gathered at the waist. It makes me look even larger than I am! In June, I was desperate for a swim skirt so I kept it. Early in July, I ordered again but chose the size 18 misses size. It was the straight skirt I wanted but was too small. I tried one more time and ordered the Woman's 20. Again, I received the full, gathered skirt. :-(

Rated 2 out of 5 by lucero I started to love this, BUT...
I swim many laps in the pool. This swim top and bottom did not fade with the chlorine, BUT after several gentle washings, the elastic band around the waist got twisted up. It was a huge pain to untwist. I sewed stitches periodically around the waist band so this would not happen again, but I'm sure the chlorine will not be kind to the thread I used and I'm not sure how long my little fix will work. I am disappointed as it is a very cute swim bottom that fits well and is flattering, but definitely not worth the fight. I hope LLBean looks at this review and sees the problem because I really want to purchase another. FYI - I purchased the skirt bottom and top in black.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sneakers2005 Fits perfectly
I needed something that would cover a scar that I had from a previous operation. This skirted bottom works perfectly. I am happy with the fit and material.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DawnMA Absolutely Love These
I partnered several of these Cobalt, Black, and Snapdragon with the scoopneck tops both striped and medallion prints. They can be mixed and matched, provide great coverage and are slimming. I swim twice a week and always feel that I look good in and out of the water even though I am older and a bit overweight.
I would highly recommend these.

Great quality and very flattering. First time buying a skirted bathing suit and loved it. Long enough to cover my hips, & it moves, well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mexicobound A keeper if
If the top that I purchased would have fit, i would be keeping this skirted bottom. It's made well, the color is beautiful and they are true to size. They looked nice. Woe is me.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Weavermom About that "quick dry"
I bought top and skirt and like the look and feel of this bathing suit, BUT it does not belong in the "quick dry" category. It cannot go into the dryer, must be line-dried, and mine has just dried out after 24 hours.
In Aqua Fit classes now and need suit every other day. Will have to purchase different suit to know it will be truly a quick-drying suit.

Rated 3 out of 5 by cizrath Waistband elastic is a problem
I purchased 2 tops and 2 bottoms to mix and match on my vacation. I love the colors and the fit. I am a size 8-10. 8 top and 10 bottom fit well. The tops are excellent. The bottoms have a problem. After first wear, the waistband elastic is twisted and folded and very difficult to smooth back to normal and will not lay flat or stay in place. Very dissappointed with this quality issue particularly for the price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jensuni Nice Swim Skirt
I got one of these last year in size 8 and it was always a bit snug so this year I bought another one in 10. That fit perfectly. These wash and wear well. My only complaint is that they do sort of show wrinkles.
