Rated 5 out of 5 by CanadianBean great bathing suit top
Good coverage in the stomach and chest area.
The straps take a little getting used to when putting the top on.
The material is great and does well against harsh chlorine/bromine.
I love these and will keep buying them for my twins.

Rated 5 out of 5 by citykidsyd Light, cool, and great colors!
Finally got to wear this to the beach on our first really hot day. This top is very comfortable and cool to the skin, even in full sun. The fit is perfect; I really like the length on it as it actually reaches to the waistband of the bottoms. The colors are bright and cheerful, I got the blue reef dot. It doesn't have any support in it, but since it's made for young girls, that makes sense. Definitely going to be a beach staple.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CanadianBean great swim top
My 8 year old daughter has this top in solid blue as well as the polka dot.
She is long in the torso and this top is long enough to cover her belly.
The gathering did not bag on her but I could see how a very flat chested girl would have this problem.
The cross straps in the back are great for keeping the top in place.
Both my girls and I love LLBean swimwear.

It's a well-made no-see-through top that provides good coverage. I agree with other reviewers that the gathering at the top would suit an older girl, and the little girls might look better in other styles of BeanSport tops.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MoreBeanTheBetter Good fit
I got this for my 9 year old and I find the fit to be perfect. I don't find the top baggy but my daughter isn't tiny. I can imagine if the girl is slim, it might be baggy in the bodice. The length cover her belly and the straps stay put. Would recommend.

Rated 3 out of 5 by BusyRhodeIslandMom Not for Young Girls
I ordered this top for my daughter who is seven. We both loved the pattern, but the pleated chest doesn't work if you have nothing to fill it in with. It just looked baggy. We were both disappointed. Probably a great choice for the pre-teen, but not for flat-chested young girls.

by NWGirlMom Nice swim top!
I bought this top in polka dot and paired it with the polka dot skirt bottom for a very picky tween. We took it on a Hawaiian vacation where it was worn for nearly every bit of 10 days. It fit beautifully giving her the coverage that even she wants while giving her style she wants too. The sun protection was excellent and we had no need for sunscreen except on exposed skin. My girl wears anything from a girls 14/16 to a small juniors size so swimsuits in this range are hard to find. We ordered in a girls 16. It fit the bill in every way giving her one piece coverage in a cute 2 piece suit. Very, very pleased with the craftmanship too. There is a lot of double stitching and nicely finished edges and details - very nice LLBean. Thank you!
