Women's L.L.Bean Mix-and-Match Swim Collection, Squareneck Tanksuit Print is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 222.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Cute! And flattering too! I was so pleasantly surprised when I tried this on - this suit is so comfortable and very flattering. I have a bit of a tummy right now, and the adorable print helped camouflage that bump. The suit is lightweight but not see-thru, and there is enough padding in the bust that nipples are invisible but I'm not wearing a fortress. The straps are adjustable and comfortable, and do not dig in, and the sides come up enough so that the squish at the armpit is covered. This bathing suit will dry quickly, too. I usually buy blues or greens, but this red print is really cute and just pops. LLBean bathing suits last forever and are the best I can find.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flattering I’m 5’5”, 130 pounds and generally wear a 6 or 8 in pants and a medium in shirts. I hesitated going up to a size 12 as recommended by other reviewer‘s, but I’m glad I did. The 12 fits great - not too tight or too loose. If I was younger, I might have gone with a size 10 but there’s no sense squeezing everything when you’re in your 60s. The cut is flattering, the bra top supports more than most suits, and the straps are very comfortable and don’t fall off the shoulders. I bought the blue print and I’m very happy with it. Would definitely recommend this suit.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Did not hold up to saltwater pool I loved this suit! I got it in The darkest nautical pattern and it fit very nicely as expected for my water aerobics classes. When the first suit faded severely, LL Bean was kind enough to replace it. However, despite rinsing the suit in cold water after each wearing, I find that the second suit is badly faded as well, and the fabric is breaking down. I have worn other suits in this same pool without the fading problem. Please fix this LL Bean! I really love the style and fit but I cannot spend that much on suits that don’t last!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New favorite swimsuit.. Nobody loves trying on swimsuits, esp me. But this suit is different. I felt it was perfect (once I got the right size).put it on and took a swim. Great overall coverage, yet stylish. The ruching in the front was very forgiving, and generally made it look interesting, not plain. As for sizing..I'm a perfect LLB Med, (8-10), except for this suit. I had to size up to a 14!..a 1st for me.. The 12 was too tight, unless you like tight suits for firm control. Will be getting another one soon..enjoy

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Runs extremely small! I'm always looking for a cute suit that's reasonably priced and has good chest support. I'm 5'2" 120lb with 34D, mom of 2. I ordered a 6 in navy (typically I'm a pants 4) and it was so small it looked and fit like a 2. I struggled to get it over my knees. I tried to exchange a few days later and they are completely sold out of all sizes (up to 14) and colors. Seems like it'd be a great suit but unfortunately their sizing is wayyyy off on this one. Should have been labeled a 2 to begin with and could have saved me a bunch of time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flattering One Piece I'm 54 yrs old and have a tummy issue. Not saying this suit performed miracle flattening, but it looked good on, had nice built in bra for support and helped create a slimming appearance. My husband liked it. The color is a cross between coral and tangerine and looks great with all the bright spring and summer colors. There are many tropical looks you can create with this suit using wraps and cover ups or sundresses. And it looks great with coral nail polish!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Nice Bathing Suit I like my new bathing suit a lot. It is comfortable and modest for a 70 year old. The straps are adjustable making for a great fit. The square neckline provides welcome coverage. The color and print is pretty and flattering. The bodice is gathered which helps conceal my rounded tummy. I normally take a size 8 in LLBean clothing but for some reason bathing suits are sized differently and have found that to always be the case. I at first bought a size 8 that turned out too tight which is why I indicated the fit to be slightly too small. I reordered a size 10 and that was perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous Suit! Searching for a bathing suit has been somewhat of an emotional journey for me. I have tried on so many suits that just did not fit well and did not make me feel good about myself. Well, this one is just the opposite. This one makes you feel good about your body! It is by far one of the best bathing suits I've ever bought. The material is thick and high quality, and really soft. The straps are thick enough to be comfortable, but not too wide, and they are adjustable, which I love. And the best part, is that it does not ride up in the back. That was a must for me. I ordered the pattern called, Darkest Navy Nautical Net and it looks so fresh and young, but still age appropriate for ladies of any age! I sized up one size to allow for a little extra comfort and I could not be happier. Would highly recommend!
