Rated 5 out of 5áby 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 5áby 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.

I'm size 6, 36B. This V-neck tankini top with the sewn-in soft-cup bra looks great. I like that the straps are wider than most - they don't cut into my shoulders. The top is easy to get into and out of since the straps are not crisscrossed. Even so, the straps do not slip off. A person can safely swim some laps without a wardrobe malfunction!

Rated 2 out of 5áby Media35 Not for my full figure
I loved the color. I loved the length. But and it's a big but, it doesn't offer enough support for a C cup. My boobs almost fell out when the suit got wet. I will have to return it.

Rated 5 out of 5áby HatesColdFeet Quality Tankini
I just received two of these and like what I see. I'm 5'6", 140 lb., and a 36C. I ordered size 10 based on a one-piece suit I bought a couple years ago. It's a pretty good fit with decent support. Yes, it shows some cleavage, but it is a bathing suit, after all. A size 12 might work, but I was concerned it would be too big once it gets wet.
The fabric is nice - not paper thin like some suits. All seams are double stitched. Back straps are ż" wide and can be criss crossed. I bought coral and tropical blue. Pretty colors!
I bought these for kayaking, car washing, hot tub, working in the yard, etc. At $19.99 on a daily mark down, I can't go wrong. Now...to find matching bottoms.

Rated 5 out of 5áby LuvToWander Finally!
After ordering and trying on MANY different color and size combinations, (THANK YOU LLBean for your GREAT return policy,) I finally hit the jackpot with this top and a skirted bottom. The fit of the top is snug enough without feeling like you are in an elastic straight jacket. The adjustable straps are great, too. I will not be constantly tugging at it to keep it from riding up or slipping off. I look forward to many worry free times at the beach this summer!

Rated 4 out of 5áby Teammate Great color, goes with all blues and greens
Size 14 worked for a 12/14 buyer. Loved the color, and looked great when I put it on. After getting wet, the front of top was pulled down by the water weight. Thus it dragged, and was like the old apron style suits mom wore. I cut out the extra lining that was in the front of the suit only, not the back. Quick fix, worked well. I would not use this suit for laps. As a swim instructor, it's perfect coverage. Other than the front lining issue, would've rated 5 stars.

Rated 3 out of 5áby Gogreen66 Nice quality but tricky sizing
I am 5'1" and weight 108 pounds. I am a 32D so I ordered the size 4. It shows way too much cleavage!! However, the quality is exceptional. I haven't seen quality like this in any of the local department stores. I am bummed that this just didn't fit me the way I had hoped. Will have to send it back.

I am a size 8, 32 DD. Have tried on dozens of tankini tops, none had enough coverage or support. Size 8 top and bottom in this suit fit perfectly. Yes, you will see some cleavage if you are larger busted, but not ridiculous. Most importantly, there is plenty of support and side coverage. Thank you LL Bean, please make in more prints next year!
