Rated 1 out of 5 by retiredbeachgoer Color faded
The color in this swimdress has faded and I've only worn it for less than one swim season. It has not been worn in a chlorinated pool. I wear it to the beach and rarely go into the Gulf. I have laundered this suit after each wear in detergents made for colors and hung it up to dry. I've purchased LL Bean swim suits for about 10 years and they haven't faded for 2-3 seasons. I love the style and comfort of the material but I'm very disappointed in the color fading. I will have to buy another suit very soon and it will not be with LL Bean

Rated 5 out of 5 by XOMYDOG Love the style
I'm 5'10" 123 lbs. Based on one of the reviews and the measurement chart, I ordered an 8 Long. I also checked my bust measurement before making the choice. I usually wear a 10 in a swimsuit and should have stuck with that. The suit looked good on, my husband approved, but it felt tight, especially with the criss cross straps. I have returned it for exchange and have my fingers crossed the 10 Long works. We are pool people and my grandchildlren expect me to join them, no sitting poolside for me. Also love the navy color and youthful style.

I never write reviews but I was so thankful to the swimsuit gods that I had to review this suit. It was a lot of money but worth every penny. It was designed to fit and enhance every part. All parts felt "contained" and secure but totally flattering as well. I love the bust design; a little flirty and not at all matronly. More exposure in the back which was nice. I don't know how they designed a bathing suit that has coverage, containment and cuteness, but they did. My husband even wolf whistled when he saw it! Love love this suit. I would buy another one if they made it in another color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SCisGreat Pleased!
I have never spent this much money on a swimsuit but I have just had a hard time finding a suit that I am happy with. This bathing suit arrived yesterday at my house so I had to try it on. I was very pleased at how it looked on me. I have gained weight over the last year (ug) around my waist, butt, and thighs and have dreaded swimsuit season. My family is going on vacation tomorrow so I wanted to have a nice looking suit that I would feel comfortable in and would "hide" my trouble areas. I think this one fits this bill! Kinda wish there had been more colors to choose from but navy works. I don't think you will be disappointed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MRosa Great Swimsuit
After trying on at least 20 swimsuits with no luck at the department store, I came home and looked to see what LLBean had, and decided to buy this in green. I'm 5'9", 155 lbs, and bought size 10 Tall. I'm glad I bought the size Tall, because the swimsuit fits like a glove, perfectly! My husband said it was cute, and looked "young" which is great since I was concerned it would look too old for me. It covers all that I wanted covered up. The only thing it could use is more tummy control. Best of all, I got it on sale with free shipping, and came in 2 days!

Rated 5 out of 5 by CamarilloReviewer Flattering for small bust
I have a hard time finding a swimsuit that minimizes my stomach and fits and flatters my small bust size. Which made me really hesitant to order a swimsuit online. So glad I did. This swimsuit is very flattering and I can finally go out to the pool with a little more confidence.

We want to look cute too! Love the crossed straps in the back, which most of your suits do not have...they make my shoulders look not so wide from the back, helps them to stay in place and gives more visual interest to the plain back.

I can't wait to dig in the sand with my grandson! This suit is flattering and modest for the active woman. No need to tug and pull to make sure everything that should be covered is covered. Please keep making this suit! The long torso is perfect for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TexasMomInLove Feels and looks beautiful
Simply put: it's perfect! I bought this suit in the pink shade, and really am happy with the color. I'm 5'8", 140 lb, and 36B and it fits nicely. I think it would look flattering on a number of different shapes. The material is great quality and not thin. I like the modest style, and I get a ton of compliments on this suit! Would definitely recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HigherEndShopper Best suit ever!
I just bought this suit to replace two previous LL Bean suits that are identical to this, except in color. In true Bean fashion, they're beautifully made and of good material---no thin, cheap stuff here! The style is as attractive as it is comfortable, and I imagine it flatters various kinds of figures. This and its two predecessors have been the best suits I ever owned for looks, comfort, and durability.
