Women's Beach Living Twist Front Swimdress
Not for me.
I am 63 years old and 10 pounds too heavy. I was hoping this suit would hide my flaws and make me feel comfortable poolside. The suit is well made, however, it does look too much like a slip. Also, it was not flattering on me. I have returned the suit and have ordered LE's 2 piece cami and skirt. I have also started my diet to loose the weight, which will definitely help the appearance of any swimsuit.

Modesty with style
I was so pleased with this purchase (which I got on sale!) I had been wanting a swimsuit that i wouldn't feel self conscious about wearing in public and this certainly fit the bill. This suit is very well made and it offers great coverage without looking dowdy. This suit stays put, doesn't creep up, and the top does NOT flatten out my small chest. The suit has a lot of spandex, which I like, because although I'm not overweight, I AM over 50 and I like the "pulled together, wearing a girdle, everything's tight" feeling. Finding a suit THIS cute, in a long torso AND with a skirt is near impossible at the store. I won't feel shy taking my grandchildren to swim. Goodbye t-shirt and shorts!

This suit fills a niche.
I'm a huge LE swimsuit fan, and this is my first foray into one that has a skirt. I was VERY surprised at how heavy this suit is - it seems to weigh about 8X what my little tugless tank weighs - but it does wire me up (underwire cups) and hold my bulges in, so can't complain! ;) Usual great LE fit.

serious swim dress
This is the one I've been looking for! It's weighty and made for the full figured woman who wants to hide in a good looking suit. The bra cups are substantial and the look is flaterring. I get compliments and inquiries as to where I purchased it.

must return: fabulous quality, not so great fit
First, let me sayt 'm a 5'4" plus size (18W) pear-shaped middle aged woman looking for a flattering, modest swimsuit. This one didn't work for me but might just work for you. When i took it out of the box I immediately thought "boy, it's heavy!" and it is. In size 18DD, this suit actually weights 1.4 pounds. It's very well-constructed with a serious underwire bra & full swimsuit body (not just a flimsy "liner") underneath the skirt part. The adjustable straps are much wider than shown (nearly an inch wide) which give great support to chesty gals. My main issue is the fit. It's too loose through the waist (tho' the hips fit very well with great coverage) and wayyyy too long to flatter even this old body. I'd suggest going down a size AND you still might need to remove a good 3-4 inches off the skirt bottom...for a talented seamstress, this may be the swimsuit of your dreams!

This suit fits well and is very flattering. I'm 5'2" and bought the petite; it fits much better than the regular fit I bought in another style. It has great support and minimizes the flaws I want to hide.

I was hoping for a swim dress like my previous purchase. The suit was not flattering at all, and the underwires made for very strange uncomfortable fit. I am short, 5'3", but never expected this suit to reach my knees. I have returned this suit. Please bring back last year's Grecian swim dress.

very slimming and swims well
This suit is very stylish and slimming. Looks like a sun dress. I spend alot of time outdoors doing yard work and in the pool so the swim dress is the perfect suit for my lifestyle. I am busty so ordered a D cup. It has a soft cup bra with an under wire. I found the under wire was very uncomfortable...digging into the skin under my arm....so I removed it easily without damaging the suit. Now it's comfortable w/ just the soft cup bra and still has enough support. I hesitated to buy the Beach Living line because they have fit small in past years. This suit fits true to size so I can tell it's been improved. I bought a similar one last year in the same size and it was so tight! I never returned it, but gave it to a friend that's a size smaller than me. She loves it too! I have been a big fan of Land's End swimsuits for many years. They last for several seasons and hold up very well to chlorine, salt water and sun....I had one last for 10 years! I have become an exclusive customer and no longer even look at dept. store suits.
