Rated 5 out of 5 by Wren67 A great silhouette
I bought this tankini top recently to wear with my LLBean skorts. It is comfortable and flattering. I got the clover pink and the color is vibrant without being too bright. Since I am tall and thin with a small bust (34A), I have always been self-conscious wearing any sort of tank top. This top makes me feel pretty and flatters my figure. I will continue to buy your skorts and tankinis in the future.
Thank you LLBean!

Rated 4 out of 5 Almost Perfect!
I ordered this top and the full swim dress. I love it, but it is just a little bulge-y under the armpits/next to the boobs - however the support and front view were great. I am 5'9", 132 lbs, and a DD cup. I think it would be fantastic for a D cup or below. Super cute and flattering! Sad to return it.

I'm going with the assumption that many people who buy this suit are either 1. modest or 2. interested in accentuate the positive eliminate the negative if you know what I mean. I am both. How did this suit do?
1. Great color! So many other suits in this genre have a black skirt. Just because I am larger-sized doesn't mean I look good in black (which I don't).
2. Good skirt length. Not too short but not too matronly!
3. Better-than-average boob support. The halter shape helps as do the nicely-lined cups.
4. Cute style. Looks good on.
Cons: (could be better-maybe fix for next year?)
1. Neckiline is too low. I had to pin mine together so I wasn't showing too much. Still feels a bit revealing!
2. Area under the pits needs to come up higher. Too much showing in the armpit area is not flattering to those of us who are soft in that area!
3. Top needs to be longer. Sometimes it rode up and my stomach would accidentally show. No one wants to see that.
4. Stomach area could be a cut just a tad more generously. Maybe some ruching or just a bit more fabric to flow more easily over bumps and bulges.
5. Maybe there could someday be a suit that is constructed like a bra with adjustable back closure etc. It would sure be nice to support the girls so I could be lookin' my best!
I did see another much skinnier woman wearing it the other day and she looked absolutely fab! So these are comments nore for the bolder-sized crowd. (mine is the size 16)

Rated 2 out of 5 by Gramaneen Loved it in the beginning...but it faded terribly
While I loved this tankini top in the beginning...very comfortable; but it faded terribly!! I have two sets of bottoms that I bought to match and those did not lose any color. It's obviously not chlorine related or the bottoms would have been worse than the top. I came on here to return it and see it's still for sale. I love the bottoms.. I may just have to send back the top only in hopes of having a new one not fade.

Rated 4 out of 5 by saugusgirl Sizing
I ordered the top and bottom of this suit according to the measurement on the sizing chart. The size 8 skort fit perfectly. The top in size 8 was much too small. I returned it for a size 10, still too small. Next got a size 12 which fits fine ( my chest is 35, not 38, which is the measurement for size 12). It looks great, hope it wears well.

by honestannie Best fitting halter tankini top
I'm 5'4", 146lbs, 34C bra, Medium in tops, and 10 in bottoms in Mall Stores & Catalogs. I am so impressed with the fit of this halter top. I thought I was just going to order 2 and keep 1 but they fit so well and are so comfortable, that I'm keeping them both!!! I can't get over how well they hold the girls in but are still modest and sexy at the same time.
Only request is MORE COLORS PLEASE, and MORE PATTERNS PLEASE!!!

I am a size 6-8 and this suit is perfect for those days when you don't want to wear a bikini. The fit was perfect and not old looking. I had many compliments from people and even strangers wanting to know where I picked it up. It was soo comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BarbaraTH Great choice
This is a really well fitting tankini -- even for an elderly person....my only comment is that I would have appreciated a reminder that the top requires a bottom.....ordered the skort after I got the top and they are great together. Beautiful suit and not a bad price. Would love a shorts bottom as well if LLBean were to offer one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NorthEastMother Red Tankini Swim Top w/ White Dots (Item TC274620)
This red tankini swim top with white dots (Item # TC274620 ) is cute and not matronly. It provides adequate coverage and is true to size. I also purchased the solid red skirted swim bottom (Item # TC274625 ) to go with it as well as the navy blue swim dress with white dots (Item # TC274616, Size 18 Long). I typically wear a size 18 at my current weight so I ordered a size 18 Regular for both the red skirted swim bottom and red tankini swim top and they fit perfectly (I'm 5' 5" tall and weigh 190 pounds). The shipping and delivery was fast too (I received it within 2 days...I ordered on July 7th and received it on July 9th). I would recommend this to a friend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Barkley911 So cute and a great fit!
I ordered this top in the same size as my other clothing ( size 4) and it was a great fit. The bra top feels very secure and the bottom of the tankini top fits nice and comfy, not tight.
