Rated 4 out of 5 by WestCoastMama Cute, but not for larger-busted women
I was hoping that my larger bust (DD cup) would be different than that of others who had left reviews about this suit not working for larger bust sizes. Nope. If you are larger than a D cup (and maybe even a C cup) this bathing suit is not for you. Its too bad because its a really cute bathing suit (thus the 4 stars and recommendation to a friend...a smaller-busted friend) and would have been flattering had my chest not been completely flattened and squished out over the top and sides.....not attractive at all, or comfortable. Very disappointing!

Rated 2 out of 5 by MIgmy Felt like Plastic Wrap
I felt like I was wrapped in plastic wrap. TOO Tight! There is No flare to skirt. If you have a little too much in the midriff and tummy this suit is not for YOU. From bust down there is NOT much give. The color and quality are beautiful. The fit is more for someone tall with a long body and FLAT. PS: if you have any fat on your back this suit will make it show. Its cut lower than most other swimsuits.:( I wish it would have worked it is nice, but on someone else I guess.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Ohio50something Not for short torso and legs
Quality of the suit seems good, but it looks awful on me. I am 5' 3'' and a 16W - the skirt is very long on me and the whole effect is not pleasant. I might recommend it for a tall friend, or with a long torso... it looks cute on the model. Sorry that it didn't work for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LiveLifeNow Perfection in a Swim Suit
Absolutely the best suit ever! I am on the heavier side but have a smaller bust. Every suit always seems to be too big on the top for me. But not this suit! It fits well top to bottom, is flattering and is extremely comfortable. Couldn't recommend this suit more!

Rated 1 out of 5 by retiredbeachgoer Color faded
The color in this swimdress has faded and I've only worn it for less than one swim season. It has not been worn in a chlorinated pool. I wear it to the beach and rarely go into the Gulf. I have laundered this suit after each wear in detergents made for colors and hung it up to dry. I've purchased LL Bean swim suits for about 10 years and they haven't faded for 2-3 seasons. I love the style and comfort of the material but I'm very disappointed in the color fading. I will have to buy another suit very soon and it will not be with LL Bean

Rated 5 out of 5 by XOMYDOG Love the style
I'm 5'10" 123 lbs. Based on one of the reviews and the measurement chart, I ordered an 8 Long. I also checked my bust measurement before making the choice. I usually wear a 10 in a swimsuit and should have stuck with that. The suit looked good on, my husband approved, but it felt tight, especially with the criss cross straps. I have returned it for exchange and have my fingers crossed the 10 Long works. We are pool people and my grandchildlren expect me to join them, no sitting poolside for me. Also love the navy color and youthful style.

I never write reviews but I was so thankful to the swimsuit gods that I had to review this suit. It was a lot of money but worth every penny. It was designed to fit and enhance every part. All parts felt "contained" and secure but totally flattering as well. I love the bust design; a little flirty and not at all matronly. More exposure in the back which was nice. I don't know how they designed a bathing suit that has coverage, containment and cuteness, but they did. My husband even wolf whistled when he saw it! Love love this suit. I would buy another one if they made it in another color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SCisGreat Pleased!
I have never spent this much money on a swimsuit but I have just had a hard time finding a suit that I am happy with. This bathing suit arrived yesterday at my house so I had to try it on. I was very pleased at how it looked on me. I have gained weight over the last year (ug) around my waist, butt, and thighs and have dreaded swimsuit season. My family is going on vacation tomorrow so I wanted to have a nice looking suit that I would feel comfortable in and would "hide" my trouble areas. I think this one fits this bill! Kinda wish there had been more colors to choose from but navy works. I don't think you will be disappointed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MRosa Great Swimsuit
After trying on at least 20 swimsuits with no luck at the department store, I came home and looked to see what LLBean had, and decided to buy this in green. I'm 5'9", 155 lbs, and bought size 10 Tall. I'm glad I bought the size Tall, because the swimsuit fits like a glove, perfectly! My husband said it was cute, and looked "young" which is great since I was concerned it would look too old for me. It covers all that I wanted covered up. The only thing it could use is more tummy control. Best of all, I got it on sale with free shipping, and came in 2 days!
