Women's Beach Living Bardot Floral Scoopneck One Piece Swimsuit
Love it! It's so rare to find long torso AND underwire, so I jumped on the opportunity to purchase
I ordered a 10 long torso with D cup underwire bra. I would have preferred the underwire without the soft cup, but had read another review in which a woman said she cut the soft cup out. I don't see how doing so is possible. Nevertheless, I am happy with the suit and especially pleased with the options to adjust the straps and tighten (not much play here) the bust. The leg openings are a bit big. A size 8 would probably be a better fit. I wear 6 and sometimes even a 4 in pants and shorts, but I always order swimsuits larger, because I don't want them too snug. Lands End is the only place I can ever purchase swimsuits because at 5'9 inches and 135 pounds, I seem to have most my length in my torso, rather than my legs. Oh BTW this suit is super pretty, and will do for lounging or swimming laps. And as is true with all Lands End suits, the quality is excellent. With a long, hot summer ahead, I can't imagine wanting to wear any of the other suits I already own!

Great Style and Great Fit
I was holding my breath when I ordered this suit; buying a bathing suit online is risky. But I was so pleased with it when it arrived. The suit has very secure underwire support and adjustable straps; I need to order a DD, so support is critical for me. It is fully lined to smooth out my curves and looks super. I love the colour and the tie in the front is a cute embellishment. I am very happy with this purchase.

underwire bra too large
extra fabric from the bra lining pushed out the top of the suit showing the white fabric. I'm a C-cup and it just didn't work for me.

Its just ok.
I ordered this suit in the same size as the Grecian I had and loved. It didn't fit as well. I need a larger cup size and this suit didn't quite do it for me. I sent it back. I really loved my Grecian in a D cup. It was sooo comfortable and slimming. Please bring back the Grecian in the larger cup sizes!

Great fit for me.
Thank you Land's End for designing a cute swimming suit that is long and has the underwire D cup. It fits perfectly and gives me the support I need to actively enjoy swimming and boating.

Grecian one-piece was a better suit for DDD
Bought this suit when you stopped making the Women's Grecian One Piece Slender Suit, and was disappointed, particularly as it contains underwire. Grecian DDD petite fit me perfectly, but this one is baggy in the rear and pinches in the front. Bring back the DDD Grecian, please!!!!!

Amazing... With some customization.
This is for all of us DD-cup women wanting a great bathing suit. I bought this suit in both color options. Although I loved the suit, why is it that companies think that DD women need soft cup padding?! AND, they make this suit as one of their "slimming" suits, which for me when I put it on I felt like a sausage in a casing that was too tight. I was about to send both back when I decided to try to "customize" one. I carefully cut out the soft cups from the bra.... Still leaving the underwire. Yay! Then I cut out the supportive panel on the back of the suit and VOILA! I love it! Needless to say, I did the same on the other suit and will happily, and comfortably wear these bathing suits on our vacation to Mexico.

Cute, but oddly proportioned
I thought this suit was really cute, but unfortunately it's going back. The band at the top is so tight I can barely get it on -- and yet the rear end is saggy/baggy. I wear a size 6 or 8 in most clothing and ordered this in a 10. If it's this hard to get on dry, I can't imagine trying to peel it off wet!

I love Lands' End swimsuits. I was so excited to see a print in a D cup. It was way too long and I did not order a long torso. It fit in the bust. I loved the print. Great quality as always.

Nice suit except for leg opening
This suit was perfect in every way, but the leg opening. I am so happy that LE offered this in a long D-cup option - this is so rare in swimsuits. It fit perfectly but I was not happy with the way the bottom looked from the back. I think the leg openings should be less modest - more high cut as that makes my behind look smaller and my legs look longer. This suit was more "old-ladyish" than I liked because of this. The underwire top and and length were 100% perfect - keep that part LE and change the bottom!!!
