Rated 2 out of 5 by baystate from Close to Perfect Just the suit I was looking for. The color and print are lovely. The slimming panel was comfortable.The fit not quite perfect. The soft cup bra is comfortable and almost large enough, but shifts around when swimming. I would need to put a stitch or two in the neckline, which displays too much cleavage. The leg openings are quite high, a more modest cut or better elastic would keep the rear from riding up. These features are okay, but acceptable, but then the straps slip down when swimming. The suit is fine if you wear it for sitting on the beach, but sadly doesn't work if you want to swim. A t-strap, racer-back would be great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ClassicallyCamden from Love this swimsuit! You know they say third time is the charm... I had ordered swimsuits from 2 other online retailers and returned them all. I had made up my mind that LL Bean would be my last try, after which I'd continue to use my old suits. Well,well,well. You hit it just right for me LL Bean! This suit was made of very nice fabric and the pattern looked prettier at home than online. Slimming, but not to tight. The ruching at the sides helps camouflage those unattractive bits that some of us women have. Good fit all around. I ordered a size 12, I'm 5'4" and 147 lbs. Needless to say, this suit was the keeper!

Rated 5 out of 5 by SuznK from Well fitting supportive swimsuit - repeat purchase I purchased the first suit of identical type in Sept 2017 and wore it 2-3 times a week in a brominated indoor pool (harsher than chlorine) for an hourlong very active (lots of jumping) water aerobics class, then relaxing in a hot tub for 20 minutes. In about 8 months, it was no longer wearable because the outer fabric had stretched out however the lining was still supporting my core body. I own a few backup suits, but was much happier replacing it with the same one purchased in Sept 2017. I love the fit and comfort of this suit over many others I have purchased from LLBean. Thanks for still carrying it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by granada1108 from Poorly engineered Power net lining only on the front half with the back half unlined so the side seams pull forward about 2" each side. No slimming effect evident due to lack of back lining. No underwire, so cups stretch vertically and flatten without lift. Attractive fabric and styling defeated by poor structural design. Bean needs to step-up on the structural support that this style should provide. Not competitive with other "slimming suits" for the price. Sorry I waited weeks for backorder. Returning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by heatseeking from Great fit, comfortable, and well made! I was very skeptical that this bathing suit would fit or that I could successfully purchase a suit through the catalog without trying it on 1st. I shocked myself. I ordered the right size on the 1st try, only ordered this 1 bathing suit, and it turned out to be a perfect fit. I love the fabric and the construction, and it's very comfortable. I'm glad I ordered it & I highly recommend it. Finally, I think it runs true to size, and washes nicely. (I wore it a lot last week on a family vacation at the ocean.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by malenkya from Comfortable, practical, okay looking I'm in a somewhat unique position: an 80-year old woman in pretty good shape learning to swim for the first time. (Getting rid of fear is wonderful!) This suit does the job. It's easy to pull on in the locker room, stays in place during lessons and practice swims, doesn't clutch or gap in embarrassing places and looks quite nice without the stiff, tight infra-structure that so many other swimsuits are cursed with. I'm rather small on top and the soft bra conforms nicely to the girls; and while I'm a little poochy around the waist, I feel it's my job to strengthen my core, not a swimsuit's. My one complaint -- a very small one -- is that the fit becomes a little loose in the butt after an hour in the pool, but I supposed that's what "tugless" means. I'll be buying another in this category if I can find one in a color I like. (Why so many bright blues and turquoises, LL Bean? They may be fine in bright sunlight but they make a woman look like death warmed over under the lights of an indoor pool at the Y.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chef99 from It Fits! I'm 5'11" & have a problem with Bean one piece suits being long enough. This one in long is ok, it would be nice if there was an extra inch but it's comfortable enough. I really like the style and the palm print, it does seem more green than blue but that's okay. I was concerned the hidden power mesh panel might be uncomfortable, I plan to swim in this suit not loll around the pool, it isn't at all. Wish there were other patterned fabrics, may still buy another in black.

Rated 5 out of 5 by grandmadice from Looks nice This suit arrived today and is a keeper. It is the nicest swimsuit that I have had in a long time. I will share that I am 5'4" and 153lbs. I got the size 14, (I could also wear a 12) and it fits me well. Comfortable and the colors and style look just as pictured.
