Rated 3 out of 5 by LLBeanBathingSuit Color Fade - help
I have purchased your suits for years as you carry LONG and I like the fit and bright color Turquoise. I had given feedback for more bright colors (orange, pink, etc) for Florida instead of black and was told to look for more choice in the Spring,
Unfortunately, I agree with the others. Since moving to Florida and using my suit more often in the pool, I have had 3 fade exactly as pictured and described. I am at a loss as I don't want to invest another $45+ on several suits.

I have two of these...the black suit has lasted well. I used it for months three times a week at the Y. I started to wear my blue suit last week, and it has faded in the back and is stretching out already.
I am very disappointed with it. There is a major difference.

by Loyal2Bean4Yrs Not Chlorine Resistant, Color Fades
In only two weeks, this cobalt blue bathing suit has faded to a lavender striped mess. It fits beautifully, but the colors are not chlorine resistant as advertised. Even with cold water, hand washing the color dissolves a little more each time it is worn in a pool.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Midwesthiker Great suit, but not chlorine resistant
I bought this suit two months ago for water aerobics classes. I've worn it twice a week (and took a couple weeks off at the holidays and because of illness.) So, it's had only moderate wear, but is already beginning to show signs of puckering at the rear and side seams. I am disappointed in the fabric's wear, but otherwise ADORE this suit. It's very flattering, and is cut well, with adequate coverage. I will continue to buy it, but would love if it was available in a longer wearing fabric. That's why I didn't give it five stars. Recommended, anyway.

I love the tank suits, I have had several, just received a new one a month ago. They are easy to get on, not too low cut for exercising in the pool. My only complaint is the chlorine wears them out too fast. The new one I got is supposed to be more resistant to chlorine so we shall see how long it lasts. I won't stop buying them though.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Shindy Great Fit color fades quickly
I have purchased 2 BeanSport Tank suits and wear them to an indoor pool 3 times a week. The color fades quickly (within 6 months) and it loses much of it's elasticity. When new it fits nicely and is flattering to a mature figure.

I have this swim suit and it is very comfortable and being a mature woman I can say it is even flattering to my old figure.

Rated 3 out of 5 by AquaLover Love the Color, Love the Fit - Just didn't last!
Love this suit-great fit, great color. After only two months, the back of this suit just faded and it is enough that I won't wear it. Not sure if it's just this suit or affects these in general. Will try one more time...

Rated 5 out of 5 by 2fortea Favorite Swimsuit
I love these tank suits and have one of each color. They fit well and are easy to put on. The fit is very flattering, I've received lots of complements on each suit. I hope that next season L.L. Bean offers them in more solid colors like hot pink and neon green and yellow.
The colors don't fade and the suits are easy to wash and dry quickly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NWMermaid Best swimsuit ever!
I ordered the BeanSport Tank suit (10L) on the web, based on the size chart, and was worried...would it really fit? My fears were put to rest...not only did it fit true to size... but I would definitely say it is the best swimsuit ever! It not only fit great, the coverage was nice in all of the right places, and it stayed put while swimming--no riding up in back. Loved it so much, I just ordered another... thank you, LL Bean, for making such a great suit!
