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 5 out of 5 by EssentialOilMomma Great for Teens! Modest & Cute
My 12 (almost 13) year old needed a modest swimsuit for church camp. Should be easy, right? WRONG. I don't know why it took me so long to think of LL Bean. This suit was simple, but it was very flattering and it covered everything. She got lots of compliments on it at camp from other girls. I'm buying another one just so she's got 2 to wear on her next trip.

Rated 2 out of 5 by judijay Not chlorine resistant
The suit fits well, moves well, and looks good, but in 3 months the back is see-through with pilling of elastic and the seams on the side are starting to do the same. I had 3 of these suits. All did the same at the 3-4 month mark
I do aquafit 3 times a week. I wash the suits after each class.
The Y's pool is not that high in Chlorine. These suits just don't stand up to it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by diane58 Fit is great.........
Love this suit. GREAT for water aerobics, kayaking, and other water sports! The fit is GREAT on me! I wear a size 12 and opted to attempt to get the same size as I normally do and am happy with that! I love the way it "stays put" on my body, when I'm in my kayak or doing other water aerobic things. My only big complaint is that the stripes don't match up in the back so for giving this a 4 star rating rather then a 5 star. If you're a person like me, this does irritate me! But EVERYTHING else about it says it all! I Don't consider this my suit for bathing on the beach~I have others that I like better for this! But you CAN'T beat it for using it in the kayak or in a water aerobic class! So I DO recommend it for such. I don't know how it will hold out in the chlorine pools. I haven't had it that long yet to determine this..........

Rated 1 out of 5 by TildaR Loved this suit until it faded quickly along seams
This style was my bathing suit for many years and I had no problem until I started swimming in a pool instead of just the ocean. This past year I've started swimming in a pool every week and this suit and an older one I have in this style faded horribly along the seams. I'll have to find a new style. Very disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by knitknit Perfect Fit Bathing Suit
I bought one of these a couple of years ago and although the suit was wearing well it was just time for another.
So glad LL Bean offers suits in a long which really works well for me. I have found I don't need to go up a size just get the longer length suit for a perfect fit.
Lovely print suit. I will get many years of use out of this beautiful suit.

This suit only lasted me a little over four months. It saddens me because I loved the color and the fit. Unfortunately, the material deteriorated so quickly. The material was so worn that it became see-through. I usually swim three times weekly, but for a couple of months I was going maybe once weekly. I rinse out the suit right away after swimming in water and I immediately hang to dry. I do not wash with detergent. I am just disappointed. I wish there was some way to find out from their department what the problem was in their experience. LL Bean has wonderful customer service and all the quality of their customer service makes all the difference. I exchanged this suit for another just slightly more expensive. We'll see what happens. I may have to spend a lot more money to purchase a quality bathing suit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sherra Great fit!
I'm 55 years old and the swim suit is very slimming and comfortable. I bought the black and just ordered the white hooded cover up. Never disappointed with llbean.

Rated 4 out of 5 by mileswimmer Take care of this suit!
I love the striped or printed versions of this suit so much I have bought it several times over the last 5 years or so. It feels comfortable and covers my bottom well and I have been unable to find a more comfortable suit for my lap swimming. I wear it 3x a week to swim laps and sit in the hot tub afterwards so it gets a lot of wear and is subjected to a lot of heat and chlorine. I have learned that it will fade quickly if not cared for properly. In fact, I returned my first one (exchanged) not realizing that I may have helped cause the problem. I now avoid wearing it in my post-swim shower and exposing it to shampoo. After swimming I rinse it in the sink in cold water with a few drops of fish tank conditioner to neutralize the chlorine (a trick I learned when my daughter was on swim team). Don't use detergent on it (also learned form swim team). I make sure I hang it to dry ASAP. NOTHING will fade it and cause it to lose shape more quickly than forgetting it in my gym bag and not hanging it up to dry!!! That is the real suit killer. Doing those things I can get my money's worth out of the suit, even when I will eventually - absent-mindedly and in a hurry - forget to hang it up too many times and need a new one. (The old one will then get used for hot tub soaking at home). I'm buying my next suit now on sale so I have it when I need it!
