Rated 5 out of 5 by Jasmax My second one.
I liked the first so well....I decided to buy another in a different color.
It fits well and hides a multitude of sins.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Oracleofdelhi Two-piece suit good for beach/so-so for swimming
Bean's swim jogger scoop-neck top and the matching swim shorts are good for the beach and for whatever else may involve water, like canoeing. They do dry quickly and allow for range of movement, plus the shorts have pockets. The top has good support. This ensemble was just so-so for lap swimming, as the top billows a little.
Sizing was an issue. (I am 5'2", older, full-figured, and spend a lot of time around water.) I initially ordered a 20W top and a 2x jogger short, based on the two-piece LLBean suit I bought in 2008 (the color faded and the elastic on the top gave out). I exchanged both pieces for a 22W top and a 1x bottom. This new set fits well, and performs so-so while doing laps. I recommend this two-piece suit because of the color and the fit, and that it dries quickly when getting in and out of the water, especially in warmer weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by oceangirl175 comfortable!
This swim top couple with the swim skip is very comfortable to spend the day in. It is modest and so can be worn among any group of beach goers, pool splashers and even students. Highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LLBeanGeorgiaFan Comfortable and attractive
I bought several sizes of this top to get the best fit. I've worn my choice several times in the past two weeks and like it very much. LLBean processed the returned tops efficiently and credited my credit card quickly.

Rated 2 out of 5 by 1Cor13 Wished it was a Jogger!
I love to run and I love to swim. I was so hopeful this would be a tank for both. If I didn't really need a suit I'd be returning it. The "sports bra" support I was anticipating wasn't there; it felt no different than any other swimsuit I've worn. I was self conscious running down the beach, much less going for a jog! Blessedly, my kids like it; teens are tough customers! The coverage is excellent (terrific length, scoop is attractive, color is fabulous). If you are looking for something fashionable, this may work for you (I am 150lbs, 5'4" and 53 years old). Was not at all what I expected; I won't be jogging in it, that is for sure!

Rated 5 out of 5 by SpringsShopper Pleasantly surprised at the great fit
I've ordered these styles in the past and they are usually too tight in the arm opening. This one isn't. It's not too tight around the middle either and it stays down when swimming. It has a built in bra that is just perfect. Very happy with the fit of this top.

Rated 1 out of 5 by ShopitoErgoSum Not as good as the old one piece
The material and fit are great. If you aren't going to swim, you'll be fine. If you are going to swim...the top rides up, kinda floats out and rides up. They used to make this as a one piece jogger and it was the greatest suit with shorts that ever existed. I gave it a shot and ordered two...can't even sell the one I never wore because nobody wants second-hand suits. So disappointing.

This is a great top . I have four of these BUT they are not as chlorine resistant as you might think. So remember that if you should order any of these.

Rated 2 out of 5 by katfish tank top strange fit
The fabric is good, but the fit is strange. Like a tight top but the straps then fall down.
The stripe across the front emphasizes any bulk under the bustline. And the stripe does not wrap around the back, it stops at the seam.
Shelf bra is ok.
Not keeping this.

Rated 2 out of 5 by lorenapescador Wish it fit better....
I am sad, this is the first time I have not been happy with an L.L. Bean tankini top....Same problem for me as for others, not long enough and to get the size I need for my bust made the fabric around my torso to loose...I could tell that it would ride up when I would be in the pool....sadly I am sending it back...
