Women's Beach Living Bardot Floral Scoopneck One Piece Swimsuit with Tummy Control
Love this swimsuit. Great coverage (underwire plus THIN removable bra pads so no show-thru), sturdy straps, bright & beautiful, batik-type print. What more could you want? (Except... a matching skirt style coverup)

This suit is really flattering, especially if you have some tummy. This is the first time I've ordered a swimsuit online, and I was sure I'd have to send it back. The pattern is cute and I feel great in it! The tummy control feels secure and not snug. The neckline is adjustable, and this suit doesn't feel frumpy at all! I highly recommend. I did buy one size up from my regular size (size 12 instead of 10). The only comment is that, because I have a small chest, the top can gap a little more than I think it's supposed to, but everything feels snug (not like I'm going to be pulling the top up or the bottoms down all day). Can't wait to wear it on the beach!

Loved this suit!, flattering to all figures! Previous reviews said the suit ran small, but I found it ran true to size. So glad Land's End makes suits in a Long.

great color and pattern
The suit is comfortable and the pattern and bright pretty color are wonderfully distracting on my plump figure, disguising little fat rolls and all the lumps and bumps you don't want the eye to notice. Paired with the voile cover up, I was more confident at the beach in the happy green and blue colors that I (and the grandchildren) love. I didn't want to be yet another person at the beach wearing all black because it is "sliming" when black is not a flattering color on me. Thank heaven Landsend carries the "Long" size one piece swimsuits that are so hard to find in the brick and mortar stores. I am pear shaped, 5' 8" tall and weigh 180#. My only complaint is that though I wear a (34)D cup in all my perfectly fitting bras at home, the D cup in the size 14 swimsuit is too large for me.

Straps are uncomfortable
There are many features to like about this suit. The fabric is substantial, the print is beautiful, the bust is well covered and supported. However, the straps dug into my shoulders in such as uncomfortable way that I returned the suit. Just in the five minutes I spent trying the suit on in front of my mirror, the thin, insubstantial straps were digging into my shoulders and making marks. I couldn't imagine wearing it for an entire day. I checked the website, and all the D-cup and above suits had the same straps. I guess I won't be buying a suit from Land's End this year. How about a D-cup top (with underwires) that has a racer back or padded, wider shoulder straps to relieve some of the pressure?

Fits just as in the picture
I am not at all the pink kind of girl, but I found this print so pretty that I had to order this one. And I was right: it is very beautiful. The fit is true to size and I only wish the leg opening was bigger. I am a 34C, 5.6" and ordered size S (6). The breast coverage is very modest and appealing at the same time and it can be adjusted. Also, it offers great support to the point I would feel comfortable playing beach volleyball in it. Very comfortable and nice looking!

Pretty print one piece
I have tried 2-piece combinations but they did not work for me so I decided to try the reliable one-piece suit. Unfortunately, this did not work for me either. It is well-made, pretty fabric and has great finishes. However, the opening for the legs were too wide and I was uncomfortable. I have a flat rear end, slim thighs, and small hips and this left the gap of about 2 inches in the leg opening. I wish the suit had fit as it is beautiful.

I thought this was a really pretty print in the aqua/blue. I liked the adjustability of the top, loved the tummy control. I think overall the fit was pretty accurate too. I normally wear DDD-DDDD (E-F) cup bras, so I ordered the DDD, but felt it was just a little too big and was afraid the underwire would be poky while swimming in it. The fully attached soft cup wrinkled and buckled just a bit for me in this size, but did smooth out with a little tugging. I think a cup size smaller would have worked, though the DD that I tried in a different style, while right in the underwire, had a very slight muffin top effect. So be wary if you have fuller breasts. There was a little extra fabric right around the leg elastic, but I have very little butt to fill it out.
As a swim suit for wearing in public, this is really nice. I ultimately decided on something else, the deciding factor being that I was afraid once this was wet, getting the underwire/tummy control combo off again would be frustratingly difficult.

Strange construction in bust area
Love the suit, body fits well, but had to make adjustments to bust. The bra inserts wrinkled and had to be removed. The underwrites caused the top to fit poorly and caused the lining material to pop out of top. I removed the wires. After making these adjustments, I like the suit.
