Women's AquaTerra Sweetheart Aqua Floral Bikini Top
Great suit! Best of both worlds -- attractive fit, but no fear that it would slip!
I absolutely love this bathing suit! I am 36 year old with three children under the age of 6. I am in good shape, but can never find a good suit for the summer. When I shop in stores, everything is a skimpy bikini, a poor fitting tankini set, or a matronly one-piece. I wanted something attractive and fun, but also something that would stay secure when I had three little ones hanging on me in the pool. This suit is perfect. I have a C-cup and although the top fits slightly like a sports bra, it is comfortable, has a cool racer back, AND gives the illusion of the bikini with the security of stretch material across the middle of the chest. Plus, the ability to buy different size top & bottom allows women to meet the different sizes of their top and bottom. I found the sizes true to size. I bought a 4 for the top and a 2 & 4 for the bottom to compare. Both fit great, but my husband preferred the 2 (he thought the 4 had too much material on the behind). I like the colors too. I will always shop here first in the future!

Great Bathing Suit but odd size.
I love the style and the quality of this top but the sizing is a bit tricky. I wear a 34 C bra normally, and my bust measurement is 38 inches. I ordered a size 6 and it fit perfect in the cup area but not in the under bust area. If the waistband had been an inch to an inch and a half shorter I would have fit into it perfectly. I thought of taking it in, but the strap in the back was sewn together so well that there was no way for me to take in the back without damaging the fabric. So I sent it back and ordered a size 4. The size four fits in the waist band better but it still gaps a bit. If I look down my bust area I can see a slight gap in-between the fabric and my skin. I wish Lands End would have created a way to adjust this back measurement, but overall it is not a problem. This is a great top and it is made excellently and will last a long time.

The only reason for the 'good' rating is the sizing. I ordered a 4 and I am a 34 C (or large B)... the strap around by bust is tight... which is good for staying on, but I just hope it doesn't get uncomfortable. I love the strap adjustment and the colors are awesome! Nice coverage and very well lined. I didn't realize, but the cups have a seam down the middle... doesn't bother me, but thought you might want to know.

For active beachgoers and poolgoers
What I like about this suit:
1. It fits true to size. I am 5'9", size 6, with a B/C cup. The suit fits perfectly.
2. It's attractive. I bought the blue/red color combo which is vivid and fun.
3. It stays put. We live near the beach, and one of my main concerns about going in the ocean is losing my suit to the waves. This suit isn't going anywhere! Other reviewers mentioned that the suit flattens the bust area, and this is true. If your goal is to create cleavage, this isn't the suit for you. If your goal is to have an athletic and attractive suit, this one works! In this pretty bathing suit I'd feel comfortable swimming laps at my local pool, racing into the water at the beach, playing volleyball, or just lounging pool or beachside.

I really wish I'd paid more attention to the reviews before purchasing this swimtop. Holy unflattering!!! If you have any chest whatsoever (and I don't have that much - I'm a B/C) this top will squish them flat in the most unflattering way. And if, like me, you've had kids - forget it. Flapjacks. Such a shame, but I'm returning it.

Love it, love it! Fits wonderfully. Great material, very supportive yet slimming and attractive. Love the top - very sexy but supportive. Am thinking of buying more in different colours (I bought the red - it's beautiful)

Not for small chested women
I got this hoping it would provide coverage as well as some definition for a not exactly large chest. It most definitely provides the coverage. Unfortunately, it fits much like a sports bra, which I guess is good if you are doing strenuous swimming, but does not provide the most attractive silhouette. I'm not one that is overly concerned with my appearance in that regard but even my husband commented on it. So my recommend "yes" or "no" is conditional. For the right body type, (ie, the model in the picture) this suit will be great but if you're an A or B cup, I would look to another style.

I absolutely love the color and styling of this! However, I am a little busty and beneath the bust was loose unless I shifted myself around and the cups held too tightly. I would recommend this to any of my friends who were smaller chested than me, but unfortunately I couldn't make it work.

I have been buying my swim suits from Lands End for the last 6 years and I've NEVER had a problem with the fit or color. I always order them online also because I hate to go to the mall and try on clothes. I will continue to purchase my suits from Lands End online. Quality is great...
