Women's Beach Living Tahiti Paisley Shirred Tankini Top
Didn't work for me
I am 5'3 - 110lbs / 32DD. I ordered a size 6. It was too small in the chest. I do have other Lands end suits in size 6. I was also a bit surprised at the colors. Other issues: There is green in the print and the lining shows in the cleavage area.

Plus size not as cute as straight
The plus size version of this tankini top is not nearly as cute in person as the straight sized counter part. It was also tighter than expected. That paired with the foul chemical smell it omitted made it a return. However, the colors were vibrant and the pattern gorgeous for summer. I wish this had been a winner.

I really liked most things about this top. I am 5-3, 145lbs, ordered the 12d. Loved the underwire support, there was just too much coverage in the chest area. Very supportive, but the center section was higher up than in the photo, probably just in the d cup size. Felt like the suit was really supportive, but felt that it made my chest look larger than it is. Sent it back and going to try it in the regular. Material quality was very good. Really camouflaged a fluffy midsection.

Quality swim top
I'm 5'9" so I bought the top in tall and it's long enough. I usually wear a bra with a B cup and occasionally C, depending on the cut. Due to some of the reviews saying the top runs small I bought a larger size and wish I hadn't, it's too big. IMO this suit has more than adequate bra cups for the average, un-enhanced breasts. The bra has thin pads inside that bunch up horribly and you can't keep them smooth. However, there is a little opening on the side so you can pull them out.
Everyone has a different body and shopping online is always going to be a gamble, even if you've bought the same item in a different color. Companies can have the same garment made by different manufacturers and their equipment can change a garment enough to alter the fit.
In general, this is a nice top. I'm not sure it's worth the price but it is a nice top.

Very excited about my new bathingsuit tops. I am a 34D-DD and 137 lbs, 5'51/2" and I ordered the size 8 with the D cup. Fits beautifully and makes me feel very secure. Tops are a little longer this year too and I really like the way it flatters.

I loved the colors and the fit.
The bathing suit fits very nicely. It has a flattering effect on me. I also like the colors.

Cut is unflattering
I ordred this because it is very hard to find a bathing suit for a larger bust. I am a size 8 and wear a 36-D bra. At 5'5" and 130 lbs, I'm a bit top heavy but not overweight. I ordered an 8 and a 10 with a D cup. The 8 was WAY too tight around my bust, squeezing everything up and over the back (unflattering). The 10 fit my top perfectly, However, both suits were baggy in the waist. It was baggy even right under my bust, making me look bigger than I am, like I was wearing a bag around my middle. I'm surprised at all the good reviews.

This top is great! I love the fit, the underwire is comfortable and supportive, and the print is just beautiful! Pair this with a black swim skirt and you are set for a cute pool outfit! If it helps, I'm 5'4" with a 42" D bra size.

I love this top. It's very flattering and the fabric and colors are much prettier in person than online. The only slightly negative thing about it is that the cups are a bit small for a D. Well-endowed ladies might want to order a cup size up.

Great quality fabric and beautiful colors
I have purchased several LE bathing suits and this one did not disappoint. It is a perfect match to a bottom that I purchased last season. Fits true to size.
