Rated 1 out of 5 by tallone YIKES!
I should have read the reviews before I bought this suit. I'm a size 12, have always been a size 12 and so ordered a size 12 in this suit. It was hard to get on but even harder to get off. I thought I would have to live in it because it took me forever to try to get out of it. I think I sprained my neck, my back and various other body parts trying to get out of this suit.
Back it went!!!!!!

I couldn't believe it when I tried on my new swimsuit, looked in the mirror and said, Wow, I look good!!! I took the advise of others and ordered the larger of two possible sizes. The adjustable straps are really nice and the skirt is modest without looking dowdy. It was easy to put on, the top actually feels like a bra, and the cut of it minimizes a tummy. I LOVE IT.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Serabella Thank You!
Thank you for the best swimsuit I've ever worn. You've made this momma feel confident, modest (but not frumpy), and cute! After having two children, I never thought I'd find a swimsuit I loved. Thank you so much! The swimsuit fits perfectly and is the most flattering one I've tried on (and I've tried on hundreds). I did order a size up from what was suggested in the size charts and it fits perfectly. I also love that I don't feel "squished" or uncomfortable like I did in other "slimming" suits I've tried on (not from LLBean). This suit was expensive for me, but worth every penny.

Rated 3 out of 5 by 19LLBShopper19 Cute swimsuit
Even though I sized up one size, it was still a struggle to put on, and it was a tight fit. Really nice concept, but I decided to return it. Too much trouble to put on.

Rated 2 out of 5 by ConGma Pretty but uncomfortable
I put this on and liked the way it looked. But with all the trim fitting, tummy tucking, hugging material it was like putting on a wet suit. I read another review that said it was hard to put on but thought I could deal with that. Well I found myself not wanting to use the pool because I couldn't stand the thought of tugging and pulling this suit on. I'm finally going to return it and look for something that's comfortable to wear and put on. Avoiding the pool because of the bathing suit it such a hassle to put on is a sign I need a different suit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PJandMira Great plus-size suit
I am a size 18W and I actually smiled when I put this on for the first time. Let's face it, no swimsuit can make me a size 6, but this one is flattering and hides huge flaws. I can't wait to wear it at the pool and not feel self-conscious. One warning: this is not the suit for you if you are small chested. Those of you who are more well-endowed will appreciate the underwire and adjustable straps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DTheriault Where has this suit been all my life?!?!
I am a heavier woman who hates wearing swimwear. I have a young family and we frequently go to beaches, camp, waterparks, pools, or hotels with pools. I hate standing in line or walking around in a swimsuit. Until NOW! I LOVE THIS SUIT! Nobody can tell it is a one piece, and since I have started wearing it, people ask if I've lost weight!! I really hope LL Bean continues to make this suit. It is the most flattering and comfortable suit I have ever owned! I did size up because so many reviews stated the midsection was snug. It fits comfortably and should I actually lose weight, it will still fit without bagging or hanging loosely.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Shopper14141414 A REALISTIC Review
I was very disappointed in this suit, after reading all the positive reviews! The fit shows every ounce if imperfection that you're trying to hide. Because of the type of fabric, this suit doesn't hide or disguise anything! It highlights them! The colors are too bright, too "discount store" looking. Tacky is the only word that comes to mind.

I bought this suit in the orchid, fell in love had to get the purple too! It is so hard to find this quality suit that is also stylish and slimming! I may need the teal as well! I am large busted DD so I sized down in the suit but went with the D cup and it fits perfectly! I am 43 and 5'6". This style is great. Need tropical prints next year!
