Rated 5 out of 5 by RufusCat Great tankini top
I purchased the darker blue print on sale in size 10. I'm usually size 8-10 or medium at LLbean, 5'9". The tankini top is the best fit I have come across after trying on and buying others from local stores earlier this summer. I matched it with black bottoms I already had. The coverage is perfect for a young mom who does not want to be falling out or adjusting the padding after each time in the water. You can be active in this suit, great for the beach or pool but not the best if you are a serious lap swimmer. Only worn a few times but so far the colors and shape are fine. I wish there was less flare at the bottom but that is minor. Overall I am very happy with this top and would buy it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bama51 excellent top to cover a "muffin top"
This an excellent top for woman who want full coverage; but still look good & not like an old woman. The top makes a small busted woman look more sexy. I purchased the blue & black color and it looks great with my black swim shorts. I am 5' 8" and weigh 140 pounds & purchased a size 14. I do not like tight fitting anything.

Rated 1 out of 5 by thatpricekid Poor fit all around
Must be some photoshop going on with the model and her breast or she has side wire that my suit didn't have. V neck was way too low for me. The lower part was not as loose as I would have liked.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Brelou Best fitting swim top I've ever had!
I have trouble finding swimsuits that are comfortable because I am long waisted, wide rib cage, small bust and have put on weight. Other swim tops I have tried are too tight and/or too short. This top is so comfortable! I wear a size 18 and the bust fits nice (most size 18 have larger cups which I don't need). The suit is not too tight, falls at a comfortable length, and does not expose my stomach, even when I raise my arms. I ordered the Snapdragon color and it matched a pair of dark blue bottoms that I already had. Liked the fit of the suit so much that I ordered the Brilliant Blue. Wish there were bottoms that matched the pattern of the swim tops.

I just finished a vacation where I snorkeled and swam every day wearing this top. It fit well. The straps stayed in place. I appreciated the extra length and coverage. I couldn't be more pleased with this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BigBiddy flattering swim top
The BeanSport swim tops are great. I have a scoop top version I've worn for years. Quality is great, and they last. And they're not too skimpy and revealing for those of us too old to be showing a lot of flesh.
I like this even better than the scoop top. Very flattering, pretty pattern, and I was happy to discover that the straps are adjustable, which is great for me because I'm tall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Brookie123 Cute and comfortable
It is true to size. I am a small busted size 4 and it is very flattering on me. I ordered the tropical blue and love the pretty green and blue color. It is very well made and covers me in the right places but still looks sexy. I haven't had a suit on in years but can't wait to wear this one on our vacation!

Rated 5 out of 5 by SFRun Great suit for flat chested women!!
I am 38 years old, almost 5'8 about 155 lbs. I am a 36 B (mostly hollow from having kids..lol) and am broad across the back from many years of swimming. This suit is awesome!!! It gives me a chest without overdoing it. It is very comfortable and flattering. It is difficult to find a suit that flatters in the chest area when you have no chest!! I also bought the Summer Harbor Swimwear Tankini Top and love it just as much as this one!! Though I have not worn this suit in the water yet the Summer Harbor keeps it shape when wet. This suit has similar material and built in soft cups as the harbor suit so I expect the same from this suit. Hope this helps!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by 5thtryforanickname cobalt blue Ikat
This is a very pretty color and print. I wish LL Bean would make swim bottoms with print that matched the tops. I ordered the black bottoms. They matched the print, but I felt like I was wearing a beautiful swim top with Wonder Woman panties. I have ordered the bottoms in Cobalt, hoping that looks better. The top is so pretty that I may keep it and wear with my navy skirt from last years swimsuit. It doesn't match, but with 3 different shades of blue and black in the print, I don't think anyone would notice. Since the print was so pretty I tried to order the one-piece, but it is sold out. Just as well. I prefer 2 piece suits. I did try the black top with black bottom, but it just looked boring after the cobalt. Still, would give the black/black 5 stars too.

I wear this top with the crops and I can boat, wade in the bay, and never be afraid that I'm oversharing my body! Comfortable, pretty, excellent fit.
