Women's Beach Living Graphic Wave V-neck Tankini Top
Nice Swim Top
I really like the way this fits. I'm 5'4" about 135 lbs, size 34D on top. I ordered size 8 and it fits perfect. I feel properly covered on top. I have 3 little kids and I don't feel like I will fall out of the top while helping them on the beach this summer. It is a deep V / halter top, so if you aren't used to that style, you might feel a bit "exposed." I did feel very covered though, in comparison to other swim tops of similar styles I've tried on.

This top looks great with a pair of orange bikini bottoms I already had from LE.

Yes, on smaller chest! Disagree about being bad for those with bigger bellies.
I ordered a size 14 and it fit my full C cup breasts nicely. Not a lot of support like with underwire, but adequate. (Only giving 4 stars because the support could be better.) This tankini nicely covers the upper chest (so no over the bra line fat showing). True, this plunges but I don't have a lot of cleavage so not a problem for me. I don't think this would be a problem for women with smaller chests than I have. Now here is the kicker...I ordered quite a few tankinis. All of them were awful....most way too big in the chest area. This one fit the chest and also fit my ridiculously large belly. I didn't notice changes in the pattern at all, and I think I would have. I will say I am wondering about LE's quality control. I ordered two of the same long-sleeve sunguard tees. Both in XL. One fit perfectly the other was much too tight. What gives? Both were made in the same country (China) but fit was completely different. I suggest women with larger bellies but comparatively smaller breasts try this. Heck, order a few in the same size! The difference in opinion expressed here could be because of lack of quality control. LE...are you listening to all the customers who want the quality of the old LE??? Also, yes, as another reviewer wrote, can't you label bust size?

Good fit and good style
Suit fit as expected. No surprises.

Great suit for smaller breasted women
Thanks, LE, for building at least one bathing suit/tankini for small breasted women. There are lots of us out there and we need something too. Most of the suits I try on could fit a couple more breasts like mine into the cups . . .. That's just as unflattering. So thanks, and keep it up. Perhaps you could specify which size chest the bathing suit would be most flattering on . . . . It would help, and save the agony of getting a suit that will only disappoint.

I love this top. I ordered a size 4 long, which perfectly on my 5'8", 138 pound muscular frame. I am only a 34B so this top covers the "girls" and keeps them nice and secure. I can see how the top would be an issue for someone with a larger chest, but it is perfect for me. I am looking forward to wearing this top on our Disney vacation this summer.

Have to agree with others about the sizing and coverage fo chest. Size 10 is too small for adequate coverage for my D cup and 12 is too big everywhere else! Have had such tremendous luck with fit of Lands' End suits over the years and am so disappointed! In previous years the V neck tankinis were cut much more generously in the chest area. Love the fabric and the color but the fit is too revealing.

Great for smaller chests
I was nervous buying this top after reading the other reviews, however, I'm on the smaller end (32-34B) so I thought it might work for me and I was right. It is very flattering. Due to my size I am able to tie it higher up and it does give me great support. The color and pattern is even nicer than the picture too!

If you don't have a perfect tummy, stay away!
I agree with a previous reviewer- if you do not have a flat, perfect tummy... this is not the top for you. The pattern ripples and makes you look huge, the bra offers zero support. I tried it on and wanted to cry, it looked so awful, and I'm very realistic about my body type.

All my swimsuits are from Landsend because of quality and style, however this is the exception. I have been waiting for Landsend to come out with a yellow suit and was so excited when I saw it in this years line. While the color is really pretty, this top is going back. The neck line is so deep and wide that there is virtually no coverage which does not work for me, Dcup. Very disappointed I have to send it back. You should have this fabric available in your other style tankini tops.
