Women's Beach Living Tahiti Paisley Shirred Tankini Top
love, love, love the white paisley!
Very good fit! I liked that the part below the bust wasn't too tight or too loose -- it fit really well and stayed in place in the water. I do wish that the underwire part in the middle wasn't as visible. Others can't see it but it's all I see when I look down. I usually wear a size 16 but prefer more room in the chest so I got a 16W. It was perfect!

Order multiple sizes then return what doesn't fit
I am a size 10 and wear a 36D bra. I ordered the 10 regular but definitely need the D cup so I have reordered. Otherwise the fit is good. The 10 regular did not come with the removable soft cups, not sure whether that was a mistake or not. I don't need them or want them so no matter, but just giving heads up. My recommendation is to order multiple options to get the right bust size, then return what doesn't fit. Since shipping is free, there's really no risk. Loved the colors, and paired it with the black bottoms. Love the suit! Can't wait to get the right fit on the top.

I would recommend this product if you have a small bust size
I purchased this product in the regular and D-cup size 8, both fit and while the D-cup fit better it was still too revealing. It would be fine for a romantic get-away to the beach, but for an active family at the local pool - NO WAY!

Bra cups were huge
I ordered a size 16 in this tankini top and I loved the print and it fit well except the bra cups were HUGE! I am modest in size so unfortunately have to return it which I am very disappointed about. I really wanted to keep it but it did not look good on.

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.
