Rated 5 out of 5 by LivingSimply Great Suit - suggest more colors/better patterns
I love the fit and look of this suit. I thought the gathered skirt would look and feel too filly but it doesn't. It is very flattering but still substantial. I would like to more colors - like a nice tropical yellow green. A naturalistic print might work too but the starburst prints available do not seem flattering to me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by wideshoeloveer Offer this suit next year, LLBean!!
I have long been searching for a suit with a D cup that offered support and modesty both. So hard to find. I LOVE the sarong style, the fact that the suit fits beautifully, AND the 14 D was a perfect fit for one who wears a 36DD bra. This suit is fabulous! Just went to order another "end of the season" one for next year, but all sold out in the "D" cup. I guess others found a good thing as well. I am hoping that the company offers another sarong suit next summer with the underwire for support and in a "D" cup. I'll happily buy another one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by bordercolliebuddy Finally, a suit to fit my long torso!!!
I was VERY pleased when I tried on this swimsuit. Not only is it cut long, it has adjustable straps to make it even longer! I also found the fit to be slimming, as advertised, with great coverage!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Pinchick2 A flattering suit
I got this suit on sale. It was in an old color, pink on black. I love the look and color and print. The fit isn't perfect for me. I'm busty and it wasn't available on sale in the D cup. The regular size 8 seems to have more like an A cup. It was way small. I modified it by pulling out the underwires. It's now like a soft cup bra which is much more forgiving sizewise. My only other comment is that the tummy slimming panel is a bit high for slimming my tummy. It's really a waist slimming panel. If this were available in petite perhaps a petite, size 8, D cup would fit perfectly. All in all, it's still a flattering bathing suit, which isn't so easy to find for an older body.
I haven't tested this suit in the water yet, but I would consider buying it at full price with the D cup.

I just received my suit today and it is a perfect fit as well as being comfortable. It has an underwire bra in it which gives me the support I need. The adjustable straps are an added bonus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by webster1943 good coverage
Nice suit- vibrant color. I purchased this suit for the good coverage; no plunging neckline . The fit is good for a busty gal- does not extenuate the bust. .

Rated 5 out of 5 by NorthBayShopper Plain Black Suit
Bought the plain black sarong. Love the fit once on, very flattering. Ran true to size for me (16 long). It is tough to get in and out of the suit.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Gramaneen Great Quality - Way off base with sizing!
I am typically a size 10/12 for all clothing. Purchased a few sizes of this suit and even the size 14 Long didn't fit me comfortably. Felt like I was in an 8 rather than a 14 L. I was skeptical to even order a 14 (just in case) thought it would be 'swimming' (no pun intended) on me, but it wasn't. I thought about sending it back to get another size but there is no way I would purchase a 16 or 18 just so it fit comfortably! Price point was a bit high too...
Other than that it was pretty and well made.

Rated 2 out of 5 by loveullbean nice looking suit but not for those with pot belly
The colors and print of this suit are beautiful. I so wanted to love it. And I did like the sarong style of it, thinking that that would hide my belly a bit. And the suit is slimming in some respects. However, the tummy control panel that is mentioned is for the midriff area only and holds that area in quite nicely. But if you have a belly that sticks out below that, there is nothing to hold it in, and the bulge is very noticeable. Also, the leg openings were a little big on me, but that's because my thighs are not proportioned to my trunk...they're smaller. If there had been a control panel in the panty to hold my belly in, the suit would've been a keeper. Unfortunately, I had to send it back.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Fitzy5 This is a slender suit
I guess I didn't pay enough attention to the description and failed to note that this was a slender suit. The color was very nice and I love the sarong but I felt like a sausage. It was very uncomfortable and restrictive which is not what I was looking for in a swimsuit. I have other swimsuits with control panels that are very manageable, but this one had to go back
