Women's Beach Living Mini Dot Shirred Tankini Top
Cute top, but pads shift
Ordered this swim top in the Navy dot. It is very cute on..fits very true to size, snug, but still gives at the waist, with plenty of length at bottom. Does show a little more cleavage than I thought, but that's not big deal. My biggest problem is from the moment I put it on, I had to already start adjusting those annoying breast pads. They aren't large enough to cover the entire area, are triangular (very odd), so you can see them through the suit if you don't have them placed just right.
Very disappointed that so many suits this year don't have the pads sewn in. Such a nuisance. I had to return 3 other suits due to the appearance of the padding already this year, that could have been really great suits otherwise. :(
This suit, although a small pain, was still very cute..and easy to adjust.

Not Great for Bigger Chest
This top could have been really cute, but I hate that it was not offered in D or DD sizes. I wear a 34D and so I purchased a size 8, thinking I would get more coverage (I usually get a 6)--this was not the case. I was literally falling out and the cute part that goes in the middle (kind of like a bra) did not lay flat against my chest. It stayed out like a shelf--not flattering. There was way too much cleavage--and I am not completely anti-cleavage, but it was way too much for me. I only recommended it because it could be cute on someone with a smaller chest. It fit fine everywhere else.

Nice suit for D Cup or Higher
I was really hoping this swim top would fit but I had the same problem I've had with many swim tops which is the body of the swim top fit great but the cups are way too big. I am 5ft 7in. plus size and wear a C cup. I read the reviews and ordered a size up from the normal size I wear like some of them mentioned and it fit slightly on the big side but had I ordered a size down I'm pretty sure it would not have fit my body. It would be way too tight. I ordered this with a navy blue swim skirt from here and it matched perfect.

Cute Bathing Suit. To short.
Great quality, as expected. Price was reasonable. Really cute bathing suit top.
The fit was true to size however the length of the top is was the main issue for me. the top ended right at the top of my bathing suit bottoms. I would have liked top have hit around my hips. I am a size 18 and the 18W fit pretty good. I have a size 42DD chest so it showed a lot of cleavage which I didn't prefer. Not the suit for me. I sent it back.

This tank is VERY flattering if you have a smaller bust - like B or so, which I find is hard to normally feel great about in a bathing suit top. It does show quite a bit of cleavage but somehow in the way they position the cups it really helps you out in that area, if you know what I mean! Not a ton of padding, just a smart way of positioning. Even so, I never felt like I was falling out of it. It just made me feel very confident.

Great color and shape, but low-cut!
I got this top in the pink color which is beautiful and vibrant. I also love the shape of the tankini top and the strong, good quality material it is made of. The only reason I gave it a 4 is that the top is more low-cut than I thought it would be. I don't mind and think it's very cute, but some people may find that it's too low for their tastes. I'm very happy with the purchase!

Flattering Fit, Comfortable
I bought this in the polka dot blue and pink. Both are nice colours but I think I'm keeping the blue. As other reviewers mentioned, it's unfortunate that the padding is not sewn in because I think it's going to shift around but I like the top and I think it will be comfortable. I'm 5"10 and a size 16 (C cup) and it fits me very well.
I would recommend it to others!

Eh, it's ok
It's not the worst tankini top, but it's not great. The bust is really awkward. The cups are underwired and not comfortable at all, and if you have a different size boobs than the cups, you're kind of screwed. Also, there isn't the same quality in the fabric as other pieces I've bought from Land's End just in the past few years. I feel like they keep making everything more cheaply, but their prices keep going up. The tankini top's saving grace is that it has a cute print that compliments the swim shorts I bought.

fits me perfect. I have not actually worn it yet, but our pool should be opened by the weekend and we will see how it wears, but trying it on, very flattering and fits true to size

Beautiful tankini top
I ordered this top to go with my deep sea bottoms that had no mate. the material and design are a nice quality. The match to the deep sea bottoms is great. The only issue I have with this top is the low cut of the bra and the fact that some of the white liner shows in the middle at the bow.
