Rated 3 out of 5 by 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by PearlsMom Just right
I am 5'8", 150#, 36A. Size 12 fit me perfectly, has a slight curve to it rather than straight down, glides over waist and hips, perfect length, and its just so pretty! After going back and forth between screens I decided that the tropical blue top went with the cobalt blue skirted bottom - and it truly does, there is enough cobalt in the top. Then I ordered the tropical blue rash guard long sleeved shirt - and boy do I have an outfit! Can't wait to trot across the MGM Grand lobby, styling on the way to the pool on vacation this summer. I am very pleased with the entire outfit and think it will last me quite a while.

Rated 5 out of 5 by OnTheGoTraveler LOVE the style and fit of this tankini!!!
FINALLY - I've found a tankini top that looks AMAZING on a large-chested woman. I have tried on dozens of tankini tops, and this is the first style I've tried that looks flattering on me. Most of the ones I've tried have been too matronly looking and/or too revealing on top.
Besides having great coverage on top, it's a very cute style in wonderful colors. I love it so much that I've already ordered a second one in another color!
Thanks, LL Bean, for creating this style of tankini that is not only pretty and comfortable, but is flattering for mature women.

Rated 2 out of 5 by katfish not enough fabric on top
I give this two stars for the pretty and sturdy fabric.
The cups do not have enough fabric to hold me in and I am a small D. I bent over to touch my toes and when I straightened up it wasn't a pretty sight.
The rest of the top is not flattering, cutting across at the spot where back fat sits. I tried the next size up and it was too big.
For a small busted, fit young woman this suit would work, but then again ANY suit looks good on a small busted, fit young woman.
This goes back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by edumom12 Good coverage, good fit
Form fitting bathing top with wide secure straps and formed cups. Much better support than my previous top. Size 12 fits perfectly for 36B bust. I'll wear this tankini and the hipster bottom, on their own or under a UPF 50 long sleeved top for snorkelling. This combo works well for me in the tropics. Would have rated it a 5 if it were just an inch longer; I'm tall and I would really appreciate it if the swim tops were offered in long.

Rated 5 out of 5 by pdxtraveler Comfortable and flattering
I ordered this in the pink. Fit is very good, length is great. Roomy enough through the tummy for me, but I am not apple shaped (more pear). If you are an apple, you might find it too tight. Love the fresh print. I also like that the straps are very secure. You can be confident that everything is going to stay in place - an actual suit for swimming that looks great too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Purpleapple Nice swim top
I bought the blue in a 16 and it fit well (am a 40B/C). I like the fact that is has nice coverage and you don't fall out of it. And you can tighten it down so there's no chance of that. Also, you can cross the straps for more security or for the look. And the best part, it doesn't look matronly. Great length in the torso (covers well) and lovely color. Overall, very pleased. Only thing is that in using it in the pool, I found that I had a bit of drag when I did the breast stroke; however, it seems that is more with the cut of the suit. Luckily, I can tighten it up and hopefully it will help. Yes, would recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RIRedMom Great fit!
I am very happy with this swim top. I am a size 10/12, with a 34DDD cup and this top fits perfectly. The adjustable straps are awesome, and it provides good coverage for those of us who are larger up top. Plus, it's got a great style.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JazzyMom I love this top!
I have been looking for a top like this that was not a halter top, and ths is it! I am a size 10, B cup, and love the way it fits. I paired it with the swim skirt. I will be ordering another one in a different color.
