Rated 4 out of 5 by CJAH Pretty and Good Coverage
I'm a size 8-10 but D cup and I have trouble finding a flirty swimsuit that I'm not falling out of in the top. I may be a senior now, but I don't have to look drab and matronly. Plus pretty colour choices are important, because if I have to buy another "black" swimsuit, I will scream. I ordered the solid blue colour which is gorgeous.This swimsuit is a bit constraining (like a girdle) but I like the full support, more generous bra area and the underwire that really flatters. The size 8 was too tight and cut unflattering lines into my back but the size 10 works. Plus once you get into the water a few times the fabric relaxes and is less restrictive. I would like the leg to be a little higher cut, the back a little lower cut and the tummy control panel is too high (at my abs) and should be lower around the navel area and down where I need the extra control. But since it works for me and I felt very good in it, I have ordered a second one. Plus it stayed put when the waves hit me or I dove into the pool.By the time they wear out, hopefully there will be an improved version available. The UVH protection is not necessary for me, but a safe add on.

Rated 2 out of 5 by MinnesotaMom100 Cute front, omg the back
I was so excited about the potential of this suit. The front was super cute. Then I turned around to check out the backside. Yikes!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Louns Color Fades Dramatically
I purchased this suit in solid blue. I've never had a better fit. And it's very slimming. However....I swim laps 3 times a week at an indoor, chlorinated pool and within 2 weeks it had faded considerably and now, a little over a month of wear and it is unrecognizable turning an odd gray!! So disappointing!

Really nice suit -- pretty color. I had to return it as the leg openings of my size are too big. .

Rated 3 out of 5 by AnniePA Sarong Style Swimming Suit 20W size
the suit fits me better than any I have had for some time. However, there is one flaw. The elastic in the legs is too loose and it feels like the bottoms are climbing up my backside all the time. It was especially disappointing because it's a nice looking suit and the rest of it fits me perfectly. However the leg opening is too large or the elastic isn't tight enough.

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.
