Women's BeanSport Swimwear, Bottom is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 31.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beansport swim bottom I really love the fit of this swim bottom. It's in between a bikini and full cut. I have purchased both colors that you offer (black and blue). It stays down on the leg part, and doesn't ride up at all. It is very difficult to find this size (4), I am extremely pleased to be able to purchase this at Beans. My only complaint is the waist band tends to roll over after a while, and you have to fiddle around trying to straighten it out.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Poor performance for the price Well constructed, good fit, true to size, BUT the extra wide elastic in waistband does not stay flat but folds over inside the casing and is difficult to smooth out again. Additionally, after just a couple of wearings the fabric is pilling on the seat. At such a high regular price, I would expect better quality materials. Glad I got this on sale, or I would definitely send it back!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Elastic waist band roles This bottom was perfect out of the bag, but.... then I wore it. After one afternoon of splashing around the elastic in the waist band rolled. I was able to straighten it out, but after the second wearing the elastic did not want to be unrolled. This is an issue I've never experienced. It's going back.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed The Beansport Swim Bottom has been my favorite for many years, and now suddenly these are not made the same, and they have been the only swim bottoms that fit well. Less fabric makes larger leg openings in the current bottoms, and this is simply too revealing! The 'ink' or 'navy' color is no longer available, and was one of my favorites as well. Please LL Bean, bring back the fuller cut of BeanSport Swim Bottom, and add a shade of navy!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Must be fit to wear this This is a well made suit if you are very physically fit. The leg elastic is tight and causes bulges. The waist was also higher than I thought it would be. I went up one size, so I suggest going up at least two.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A little above average swim bottoms I have 2 of these swim bottoms in different colors, in a size 10 and a size 12. (I don't see much difference.) I like the fit of these swim bottoms and I especially like the wide elastic on the top. My little bit of "extra" doesn't bulge over top. However, I gave the 4 star rating because the elastic does have a tendency to twist, which can be annoying AND the fabric does snag somewhat easily. But because I love the fit and the wide elastic which is much more comfortable, I would buy this again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the look, but not great for swimming I already owned a swimsuit that was great for swimming laps. However, at age 73, I''m no longer thrilled with how I look in those streamlined suits when I'm not in the water. I wanted something prettier and more flattering. This was perfect. I bought 3 pieces: the tankini top, and -- in the store -- the skirt bottom. However, I decided that I'd also like a hipster bottom piece, and I had to order that online. All 3 pieces together cost more than I'd intended to spend, but I'm not sorry I bought them. I am very pleased with how the suit looks and fits. However: It is not good for swimming. Both the top and the skirt float up in the water. Here's the solution I came up with when wearing them for the first time on a Florida vacation: To go to the pool I wore the top and both bottoms -- the skirt over the hipster pants. (They are not too bulky.) I lounged around like that. If I decided to swim, I took off the skirt and tucked the top into the bottom. Thet worked well, as there was nothing to float up. (It probably looked dorky, but I decided I didn't care.) Then, when I got out of the water, I untucked the top and put the skirt back on.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed I have purchased many products from LL Bean and have always been pleased. This swimsuit bottom snags terribly. The waist band elastic bends, turns and does not stay in place. This product does not live up to what I expect from LL Bean.
