Women's Beach Living High Rise Swimsuit Bottom
Good Quality and Versatile
I really like the style and quality of these bottoms. I like that they come up a little higher than all of the super low rise stuff that is selling these days (after 3 kids, I like a little more coverage than I used to), but yet they don't come up so high that they look like a diaper. I first ordered a size 8 (which is what I usually wear) and the fit was okay, but I felt like the leg openings were too tight and it looked like my legs were being sqeezed (although they did not really feel too tight). I returned them and ordered a size up and I think they look better--although they don't really feel any different. I now have three different colors and may purchase more if/when they get marked down further. I love the versatility of being able to mix them with my different tops.

It didn't match the tankini top that I purchased, so I purchased another Tankini top that it did match.
I am tall, and these fit ok, I just wish they were a little higher on my waist. It would be perfect if some of them came in a taller length. Otherwise, I love all of the Beach Living mix and match suits, in fact I purchased 3 of them this year alone.

not exactly what I was looking for
I felt that these bottoms fit a little snug. After two kids, I'll admit I have a little paunch and it would be nice to find a bottom that didn't push in at the top, causing a little sausage roll. That being said, I also have little to no butt, so I can't order them too big or I have unsightly extra fabric at the back. I wish Land's End would offer the super high waisted bottoms in smaller sizes, instead of only for plus sizes.
I usually wear 8's or 10's. I ordered this in a 10 and it served its purpose.

Great tankini bottom
I wear a size 8 pants and the bottom is a size 8 and fits fine. Good quality as always from Lands End.

It feels lovely on and the slightly higher leg is flattering.
High rise covers the tummy and holds it in a bit. Other high rise have low leg but this one has a slightly higher leg which I find more flattering.
Fits well across the bottom, quality is great like all Lands End products. I have not worn it yet but am looking forward to the next opportunity to wear it.

My Yearly Purchase
I live in the pool in the summer so every year I order the black and the navy. I love these bottoms. They cover the tummy and still allow me to get a tan. For some reason, the size 10 in the navy that I ordered was a bit snug and the 12 fit better. The black was just the opposite. The 12 hung on me and I had to reorder it in a 10. I don't mind the reordering but I am a bit upset that I have to pay to return items that are sized inconsistently. (Not the first time this has happened.) I still give these swim bottoms top ratings because I do like them - when I get the right size!

Good coverage and fit
I purchased the deep sea to go with deep sea/turquoise floral paisley tunic top. I used to buy Lands End suits1 size larger than my regular size. So glad I believed the fit chart and ordered my regular size 12 pant size. This provides full coverage and I thought it fit just right at the leg opening. I didn't experience the binding that some reviewers had. The only reason I didn't rate this 'exceptional' is because I wish this came up higher toward the waist. It's more like a hipster style on me,

A hit with ME!
Good basic cut & I love this fit. . . . does not leave me with rolls of skin pooching out from a bad "girdle" look!

For 60ish small person, Lands End is the only place to shop swimwear
This year I discovered you can buy cute tankini swim tops just about anywhere. The bottoms, in my size, however are all cut for 20 year olds who haven't had 2 kids & a bikini C-section scar. I've shopped on line & in-store, inexpensive & very expensive and these are the best bottoms to match up with any tankini. This is my second pair. You can wear them in comfort all day - no riding up or falling down. And they come in great colors. I may order a few more by then end of summer.

Perfect for an adult body!
These are the ONLY tankini bottoms that I have ever liked. I even order them to go with tops from other stores. They are high enough to bend over and not feel like a plumber, but still don't feel matronly.
