Rated 5 out of 5 by JudiRachel Best suit ever
This is the most beautiful, flattering, comfortable, perfect-fitting bathing suit ever offered by LL Bean. I am in my seventies, 5 feet 3 inches tall, 112 lbs, athletic build. On basis of measurement chart I bought four suits in size 6. Hard to put on, yes; but once on, the suit always stayed perfectly in place throughout energetic hour-long swims in salt water. Suit looked and felt good both before and after swim. Excellent quality lycra.

This suit is very flattering with good coverage. It stays in place when swimming and walking. I had taken my measurements using the size chart, but based on how my previous L.L. Bean suit fit, I ordered one size up and the longer torso, which was a perfect for me. The front has great tummy control. In regards to fit, I have never found a bathing suit I loved so much. After 3 times swimming and rinsing right away however, the rich Parrot Green color has faded slightly. I only wish the color would stay vivid longer.

The LLBean suits are really good quality. This one was very flattering but my lumps showed on the back side, where the panel is just a flat panel with no gathering like on the front. So it went back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cornelia0712 Finally a great bathing suit!
I am a 6'3" tall woman of athletic built. I ordered the bathing suit in red which is a super nice color, in size "long 14". Fits perfectly. It is long enough and comfortable with good support in the upper department.
The material is very pleasant to touch and the built in wrinkles are nice and don't look too flabby.
Finally a good bathing suit that fits a tall woman!

This swimsuit is cute on. It needs to be lined in the back. It shows way to many flaws. The front coverage is very nice.
I would only purchase in a dark color if I did so again. I have the Red in a size 10 which I may return because it does not have good coverage in the rear and back. Just something to consider if you have any dimples or rolls on your back. Sorry, but hope this helps.

I needed a suit that doesn't draw attention to my chest. The gathers along the sides do that. It fits great. It is the right size and coverage is good. Nice quality.

Love the suit. It has a flattering neckline. It is the second suit in this style that I have ordered. I did order one size up on both suits and they both fit equally well. I'm in the pool a lot and I am pleased with the quality.

I am 5'9" tall and have always had trouble finding suits that were long enough. This suits is long enough and fits well. It is also flattering for a body that has had two children and all of the issues that come with that. The only thing that I would change is that I wish it had an underwire bra and was more supportive. I wear a DD cup. There is moderate support, but it could be much better. I would purchase this suit again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Charann GREAT, CLASSY SWIMSUIT
Having not worn a swimsuit for about 20 years, I was afraid to even entertain the thought of what I would look like in one. I immediately liked this suit when I saw it on the website, so I chose the Navy color and went with a size 14 and held my breath. Did not try it on right away...had to build up my courage gradually, When I did try it on....WOW it really fit nicely and looked nice on. The quality of the suit was more than I expected and the fabric was comfortable. I liked the neckline and the adjustable straps. The price was even a good price for a quality swimsuit. Now, I will be ordering a navy swimsuit coverup from LLBean to complete the look.
