Women's Beach Living Adjustable Scoopneck Tankini Top
I have always ordered Lands End swimsuits - fabric and fit cannot be beat. I ordered this tankini in long, but didn't need to because I think the regular would have been long enough. The underwire and adjustable straps provide a great fit - the only thing I noticed was that the elastic band around the bottom of the "bra" is a loose fit. Overall, pretty happy.

Really like this Adjustable Scoopneck Top. Find it much more flattering than the Twist Top I have ordered in the past. Looks great with the new Batik Mini Swim Mini skirt. Was not sure that I would like the tie under the bustline, even if it helps adjust the fit, but can live with it.

What I have been looking for
This is a fantastic tankini top. I'm a 36 DD, with a small, short waist. The top is supportive, and the straps actually fit (straps are always too long on me). I ordered a size 8 and it fits perfectly, not too long, not too short and not baggy in the middle. I can convert the top to full coverage for my up-coming family vacation. Then I can change the look for a weekend get-away with my husband. You can make this as sexy or not sexy as you want it to be. Great support for my large chest. I paired it with a printed flare mini.

Fits well. Great color & quality
This is the 2nd time I've ordered this style. Great fit & control to cover a little extra in the tummy after having 4 kids. Highly recommend!

This is a very comfortable great fitting top. I love it and think I may buy some more colors.

Finally, a bathing suit that fits!!
I always dread bathing suit shopping b/c my bra size is 38F, so I tend to have to buy bathing suits that are heavy with built in bras that hold water and never dry! Not the case with this one. It lets me tie it to make it have a younger look (I'm 30) and it's not too much material so it dries quick. This is the first year in awhile that I'm actually very happy about the bathing suit I have!! The only complaint I have is that I wish they would have sewn in the pads. They MOVE all over the place, and roll up/down when I'm putting it on and taking it off, and the little hole to adjust it doesn't fit my hand while it's on, so I have to be VERY slow about putting it on so the pads stay in place. I will be sewing it in myself.

Fits like a glove
I've never been able to find a swimsuit that holds me up(DDD chest) without tying around my neck! Which is very uncomfortable. After reading all the reviews, I decided to give this one a try. The fit is perfect! It holds me up wonderfully and I get to have a swimsuit with normal, thin straps over my shoulders! Very hard to find for a "regular" sized woman with a larger sized chest at a reasonable price. The suit is a little difficult to put on, but that's to be expected for women with large chest. The sizing is exactly as the chart specifies. I've also tried it out in the pool a couple time and no complaints. I can't wait to wear it on the beaches of Cozumel this summer!

Needed a petite and found it.
I like the swim suit. I am almost 5'3 and this is the first petite swim suit that I've ever owned. However, I was disappointed to see Made in China on the tag. I try to buy clothes that are made in any other place than China. I would even be willing to pay more for this item if LE would consider it.

Good, but not great.
This is is good start to what could be a great swim top. It fits well and true to size. The material and design are wonderful also. I love how you can adjust the coverage on top! My only complaint is that the cup pads need to be thicker and sewn in. I'm a very small person on top; however, this swim top still made me look "pointy". I am sending it back for this reason. If they ever change the cup/pad issue I would definitely order it again!

A review for the thin DDD cup gals
I'm a lean 5'10 and usually wear a 6R, sometimes 8R. I'm nursing so my bra size is a shocking 32DDD. I have a thin waistline. This makes swimsuit shopping dreadful. One pieces are out for me, and the only bikini tops for DDD cups look stripper-esque. Lands End measurements have me as an 8 in the DDD, which seem to be the closest I'll ever get to a decent swimsuit. It holds the girls in without the dreaded uniboob. The lining is white and is noticeable if you tighten the strings as the model is showing. The torso seemed ok; I like mine a teeny longer. The suit is big in the waistline, as is EVERY suit on the planet. The designers must assume all 32DDD cups have a larger waistline, and perhaps they do. I've never paid attention until I started needing them!
All in all, I'd recommend as a tankini to other thin but huge busted girls out there trying desperately not to look like paid entertainment. It's not perfect, but it's the best *I* could find that wasn't $100 and over.
