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.

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!

Rated 1 out of 5 by rhsl good fit-faded too fast
This suit faded badly within 3 months of purchase. I do water aerobics 3 times a week. I wash my suit immediately after swimming. It has been 6 months now and it is now stretched out and ready for the trash. I have had the same experience with other suits from LL Bean but they lasted a little longer then this last suit.I believe this suit is advertised as chlorine resistant. Not.

Rated 1 out of 5 by sunswimbeach faded fast
I had purchased two of the beansport one piece swimsuits in the last two years and they were great.
This year I purchased two more. I have worn one for the last month and it has faded out and looks awful.
I am thinking of returning the second suit.

Rated 1 out of 5 by LaxMom071410 Print faded quickly
I read the reviews and was hoping the previous comments about the print fading quickly were incorrect. I was wrong. I started wearing this suit once a week in March. After 7 wears it has faded to the point where it cannot be worn. I loved the fit and the print and thought the suit was a keeper. The print in some places holds it color while in other places it completely fades to looking like it is a old, used suit. Will be returning.

I seldom wear a swimsuit, but need one for an upcoming trip. I ordered this one in an attempt to avoid the expense of more structured suits..
As one might expect, this suit in solid color (black) shows every imperfection. It has been returned.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ARLM Good, simple suit
I purchased this skirt about a year ago and have worn it several times. I have the black medallion print, which is very pretty, in a size 4 regular. I typically wear a size 2 petite or 0 from LL Bean, as I find the styles run large. This suit, however, was surprisingly short on me. I am still able to wear it but I wish it were a couple inches longer. I do not believe that I have a particularly long torso and I don't usually have this problem. For reference, I am 5'3" and about 120lbs. I will say, I wish the suit had a bit more bust support but it is a good choice for a simple, sporty swimsuit. If you do have a longer torso, make sure to size up!
