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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by AquaLover Love the Color, Love the Fit - Just didn't last!
Love this suit-great fit, great color. After only two months, the back of this suit just faded and it is enough that I won't wear it. Not sure if it's just this suit or affects these in general. Will try one more time...

Rated 5 out of 5 by 2fortea Favorite Swimsuit
I love these tank suits and have one of each color. They fit well and are easy to put on. The fit is very flattering, I've received lots of complements on each suit. I hope that next season L.L. Bean offers them in more solid colors like hot pink and neon green and yellow.
The colors don't fade and the suits are easy to wash and dry quickly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NWMermaid Best swimsuit ever!
I ordered the BeanSport Tank suit (10L) on the web, based on the size chart, and was worried...would it really fit? My fears were put to rest...not only did it fit true to size... but I would definitely say it is the best swimsuit ever! It not only fit great, the coverage was nice in all of the right places, and it stayed put while swimming--no riding up in back. Loved it so much, I just ordered another... thank you, LL Bean, for making such a great suit!

Rated 5 out of 5 by BeadedRoyalty Stays put - fits great!
Love this suit! It fits true-to-size (I wear a 10 shorts/12 top and bought a 12). I have seen the reviews about it being too short. The key is to measure your torso the way they describe?
This was my go-to suit on vacation lounging around the pool and is especially comfortable for doing laps in the pool. Lined front means no unsightly suction on the belly button. : ) I would be just as happy if I paid twice as much, so it is worth the try if you are on the fence. With LL Bean's return policy, how can you go wrong??

Rated 3 out of 5 by Wishfulhiker Love suit, but doesn't wear well
I'm on my 3rd suit because I absolutely love the way it fits. I know it fits, and I can order online without trying it on. The reason I gave it only 3 stars is that I only owned my first black one for 3 months when the back wore so thin my lower back showed through the suit. (very embarrassing!) I swim on average 3 days a week. I don't feel a suit should wear out in 3 months. But, because I loved the way the 1st one fit, I ordered a cobalt one a month later. Good thing I had that one on hand when the black one had to be thrown out! Hopefully, this won't happen to my cobalt one. But, I'll be prepared to replace it with my new black one. Then, that would be the last suit I buy. We'll see.....

Rated 2 out of 5 by SueInClearwater Mismatched stripes on sides and in back
This suit fit me perfect and I love the colors in the tropical blue stripe. But it was poorly made in that the stripes are mismatched on the sides and in back. I wish it was not the case as everything else about it is great. But, I am returning it for a solid color. Any good seamstress knows to match stripes/patterns at seams.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Geniegreenjeans Great Swimsuit!
I got this swimsuit to wear in my water aerobics class. The fit is true to size and fits well. I use it 2-3 times a week. So far it has held up beautifully to all that chlorine. (I've only had it a couple of months now - but my old suit seemed to succumb to the chlorine really quick (not an LLBean suit) )The pool is a warm water pool and seems to have a lot of chlorine. It has good coverage too. I like the color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tiramisu1 Excellent suit - fits exactly as it says
This suit fit *exactly* as the size chart said it would (I ordered 20W). No more AGONY while shopping for a bathing suit. If only I'd ordered this suit sooner - I could have been sporting about in it. I swim laps and at the ocean, and it's a good suit for that. Colors exactly as shown. Soft cup bra works for a larger (DD) bust but isn't like wearing armor plating. I am tall (5'10") and curvy and this suit works splendidly for me. Right after I finish this review, I will order another.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gunsmithwife Just perfect
I wanted a suit I could wear for swimming and hot springs soaking without having to feel self conscious about what was hanging out. This suit is perfect. It is pure class...a basic bathing suit that offers good coverage, good bra cups, and good basic straps that make it easy to put on and take off. No weird tan lines from this one either. It is not as "basic" as the old shapeless "tank suits" we wore in high school swimming class (ugh). Yet it does everything a swimsuit should do. It covers the right parts and lets you enjoy SWIMMING and SOAKING without worrying about cleavage escaping. I cherish this suit. I got basic black but would recommend ANY color or pattern. I am 5'9", 150 pounds, and bought a 10 Long, even though I usually wear sizes 6 or 8. With swimsuits, it's better to have too much than not enough. This is not an old-lady suit at all. It just looks FINE on just about any body.
