Rated 4 out of 5áby Tortuga30 UNLINED BEHIND - Not fully lined!
Beautiful pattern, great looking suit. It seems to run a little short in the length. Ordered 6 regular. Will be exchanging for an 8 regular. I ordered a few suits in this shipment: BeanSport and Tidewater separates. Be warned, NONE OF THE SUITS ARE FULLY LINED! Only the fronts, not the backs! Which doesn't make any sense to me. Cost cutting strategy? Disappointing. I'm hoping the pattern will help disguise this issue. Overall I recommend the suit, it really does look beautiful and slimming on.

Rated 1 out of 5áby kyegirl No fabric match on backside
I had ordered this suit in a size 6 which was a little tight. I was very disappointed in the fact that the striped fabric on the back of the suit was not lined up to match. What woman wants to draw attention to her backside in a swimsuit. This speaks to very poor quality in my mind. As I was going to try a size larger I hoped that the mis-matched stripes on the suit was just a fluke but the 2nd suit I received was mis-matched on the back too. This suit is very cheaply priced at $49.95 and I guess you get what you pay for.
I do think that the quality of clothing at LL Bean has denigrated in recent years and this purchase has really reinforced my opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5áby travellllller love it so much we bought a second one
My teenager was in dire need of a suit- and since it is the winter we had to go online. I found the Cobalt stripe on clearance and took a chance on it- we looked at the size chart and ordered an 18 long. It was a perfect fit. She said that she couldn't believe how comfortable it was and it was the greatest suit she had ever put on. After using it on vacation and in the hot tub we decided to go ahead and order another one in solid black. It looks great too. She is thrilled- and I am thrilled that she has two good looking bathing suits- that cover her body, are comfortable, and look really nice. She keeps telling me that it is the most comfortable bathing suit she has ever put on. The sizing chart was exactly right when it told us which size to buy. If you happen to find a cobalt stripe still on sale- the picture is accurate, the stripes do not line up in the back- but she didn't care so we didn't care. It is really a great cut, style, and fit. I highly recommend it. AND we have seen no fading from the hot tub- which hasn't been the case with other brands. I will definitely buy more of these in the future.

Rated 3 out of 5áby 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.

Rated 3 out of 5áby amarks tank 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.

áby 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 5áby 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.

Rated 4 out of 5áby pamoc tank suit
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 5áby 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.
