Rated 5 out of 5 by Curlyque Comfortable swim suit
I love this suit. It is very comfortable, does not ride up in the back, shoulders stay up and slimming look. I use it to swim laps and just love it.
I highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by advisedshopper a great bathing suit at last
Just perfect !! Well cut, well designed !!
Not too thick, not too thin, not too covering but still covering enough.
Holds every thing in place without being a girdle.
A great bathing suit !!!! Love it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Outdrgrl on size and wear
Size - I measured at exactly a size 10R, but because I normally buy one size up on bathing suits I ordered a 12R and it fits perfectly. I am 5'3" and wear a 34DD cup. Based on other comments about the cup size, that may be why I needed to go a size larger on the suit. I would like it cut a bit higher in the leg, but that may be a function of going up a size.
On wear- I have had the cobalt medalion suit for about 6 months and wear it primarily in salt water. Considering I wear it walking on the beach nearly every day in summer and swimming half those days, it has retained its shape and color remarkably well. It no longer has the sheen it came with, but other than that has not faded too much.

Rated 4 out of 5 by dcausey76 Fits nice and pretty colors
I really like the fit and quality of the tank. The problem I had with the cobalt color tank was if I was swimming in the ocean and it was cold the soft cups were not thick enough..... I was conscious of this so not sure I will buy more. It needs alittle thicker cup. Sure I am not the only one with this problem with this suit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sjznj The perfect suit
I just bought a house with a pool and use it almost every day to exercise. I'm a size 12, 36 C and have always opted for underwire and skirts. Not any more. My family can't believe how
flattering this suite is.It dries very fast, is true to fit, super comfortable. I just ordered a second one in the other color! Love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hedgeworth Pretty print, comfortable suit
I was a little skeptical because of some of the reviews and because of my own preference for suits with racer backs and no cups. I'm glad I took the risk because this swimsuit is a welcome addition to my collection.
I have some suits that are strictly for swimming laps -- racer back, no cups, faded and maybe a little loss of elastic. And then I had 1 (skirted) that is mostly for swimming when I'll also be hanging out at the pool or the beach, when I'm not just going to be headed to and from the locker room immediately. But, guess what! This suit is, well, *suitable* for both purposes. It's comfortable to swim laps in and it also looks ok if I'm going to sit near the pool or on the sand.
I have it in the blue/purple/black print that I think is very pretty. I was happy to discover that the front has a micro mesh lining. The armholes come up high enough to provide some support but not so high that they are annoying when I swim. The back also is cut high enough to provide support and keep the straps up.
I am glad I didn't let the more critical reviews influence me unduly. I just got the suit, so I can't say anything about how it will hold up, but I'm glad I bought it. It passed the swim test.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Sgupnorth Nice suit, but fades in chlorine.
I wore the blue medallion suit for about a month in a salt pool, no problems. Started swimming in a chlorine pool and within three weeks it was bleached out and looked terrible. Too bad, because otherwise a nice suit.

Rated 3 out of 5 by geoskimom Sloppy. stripe matching on sides and back
Loved the fit of this suit in the long body. Looked terrific from the front, but the mismatched stripes on the sides and center back disqualified it. Not the quality expected from LLBean. Even back in Jr. High sewing class we were taught to match stropes across seams. Back it went.

Rated 4 out of 5 by akchel Excellent swimsuit
I bought this for my first trip to Hawaii. It is very comfortable, fits well, and I like the color. I would like more pattern choices, but overall it's definitely worth getting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jessica80 Great fit & comfortable, cute!
I am a 35-year old camp director and needed something conservative to wear all summer in the pool with counselors and campers. The sizing chart was spot-on and the suit is even cuter than I expected. It is very comfortable, too, and provides much coverage for movement without being too matronly. In fact, it looks pretty sporty. I wear the matching lined shorts for added modesty and they are also perfect! I wash them on delicate and hang to dry outside to make it last longer (after reading reviews that it might fade). I have had it for 6 weeks, wear it every other day, and rotate the cobalt pattern one with a solid black one. So far no issues!!
