Women's Saltwater Essentials Swimwear, Scoopneck Tanksuit is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 29.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great color and style Ordered this in Caribbean Blue and it is lovely. Empire waist style is flattering. Note that the cross pieces for the empire waist are sewn to the suit so the cross pieces will stay in the correct position. Previously ordered same style in the blue-green print and liked it so much that bought this one in solid color. The extra strap across the back prevents the shoulder straps from sliding off. Shoulder straps adjust easily. I have an athletic build and wear a 16 petite in TrueShape jeans, classic fit. The 14 regular in this suit fits me a bit better than the 16 regular (size of print suit). If in doubt, I'd recommend sizing down, especially if you are shorter than 5'4".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleasantly surprised! I ordered this suit on a whim after seeing it in the store and loving the coral color. I afterwards, with regret, knew it wouldn't compliment. However......I love it! I normally have to wear racer-backs because my shoulders are thin, but this suit stays put beautifully. I assumed it would play up my 67-year-old waistline, but if anything, it compliments it. The color is fun, not too orangey. The material is UVA proof and contains lycra to prevent chlorine stretchage. I am normally a 2P in everything, but the reg. 4 fit snugly. It's a keeper!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit, color, and style... a real find. Seriously, I have never in my adult life ... and I'm closer to 70 than 60 ... had a bathing suit that fit the first time out and this one did (and I didn't even have to go to the store). Like a lot of us, I've spent way too many hours trying on suits that didn't fit, were too sexy, had too many things to fasten and unfasten or too much going on in general. All I want is something simple, that fits, to swim in, in a color I like. I'm not overweight, but I'm comfortably curvy below the waist (thanks gravity) with a medium bust. In clothes I usually go 6-8, but chose 10 regular in this and it was perfect. Also, I love the forest green ... a good new color in the LL Bean Palette. Really happy with this purchase. Note: haven't washed or gone swimming in it yet, so this is just about fit and color. Hope this helps!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice suit First time ever that I tried on a suit, and it fit! Bought 2- ...I swim 4-5 days a week...bought it because it is chlorine resistant ...well, after 3 swims, it faded...not a vibrant green blue anymore...I soaked it in cold water after each swim..Customer service was wonderful, said this might be a faulty one, sent me a new suit...I just have to send this faded one back...hmmm, dare I try this one in the pool?? Will let you know how it turns out!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nice fit. Gentle bra padding. I read the reviews before buying. Strangely , the negative reviews were helpful in my decision for which size to get. Sorry, too modest for pictures.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE this suit. This black bathing suit is both good looking and perfect for swimming laps. It fits generously, so not too small. I am REALLY happy with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! This is the perfect suit for swimming laps at the YMCA! And that is exactly what I had bought it for. It covers enough to be not too revealing, but it is still cute according to my college age daughter. The soft cups provide nice support and I love the fabric. The straps are comfortable and the back clasp is easy to reach without contorting oneself. Did I mention it is a great suit and nice looking too? A Winner!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect suit for me I am so happy with this suit, thank you, LL Bean! I've worn nothing but a tank (Land's End tugless) for as long as I can remember, only because it was inexpensive, came in long and with a shelf bra. This suit is far superior, in every way, and the bra in this is perfectly comfortable and actually flattering. Gorgeous shade of blue, my new favorite color. Absolutely love this suit!
