Women's DD-cup Beach Living Dot Scoop Tankini Swimsuit Top
Don't love it as much as I did a year ago
I've had this tankini top for a year in a 6 long/bright coral bloom. Up until this past weekend I loved it. It covered everything I wanted covered and was so cute I'd even wear it with shorts or a skirt. This past weekend the color started bleeding terribly. I have no Idea why. I always washed it according to the directions and can't figure out what happened. The polka dots that were once white are now pink and I have a pink stain on my bathtub where I always laid it to dry. Hopefully bleach will fix that stain, but I originally spent the money here at Lands' End so I wouldn't have to deal with a cheap bathing suit. I am highly dissapointed.

Finally a top that fits!
I just got this tankini last night and I love it! I wear a 36D bra and I ordered a 6 D. The D cup suit comes with an underwire bra sewn in and it actually fits my chest unlike the Miracle suits and many other manufacturers that claim their suits are for D cup but wouldn't fit bigger than a C cup. It is a nice length and is fitted nicely through the bodice. I ordered the black and paired it with a pair of black boy shorts (also from LE) and it looks great! I couldn't be happier especially since it was less than 1/2 the price of this year's print!

Fit is tent-like.
I really like the way this top fits in the bust, but below that it fits like a tent. I haven't been able to find a tankini top yet that fits close to the body - they all balloon out as if you have no shape at all. It's very frustrating. I ordered in a size 6 Long, and it's like wearing a sack that's too short. I'm going to have to try to give it some shape myself with my sewing machine.

This is the first time i ordered a size specific article of clothing let alone a bathing suit. It fits so perfectly and gives such great support! It fits perfectly and makes me feel a bit slimmer than any other bathing suit that I have tried on in the past years! I would certainly buy from LE again!

Great pattern, fits fabulous!
Love it! With a larger chest I find it hard to find swimwear that gives support, is stylish and sexy without being revealing. This top manages ALL of that. Two thumbs up!

great swim top! love how it fits and the quality is really high.
wore this swim top all summer. It washes up well and never faded or got all stretched out. Lands End swimsuits are top quality. Yes, they are expensive but they are worth it. I struggle with fit since I have a long torso and this was perfect. I might have to buy another one!

Got an 8 D. Usually wear size 6 pants, 34DD chest. Love the fit and look! Please make this in additional fabrics next year!

Fits well, except for the underwires.
I particularly looked for tops/tankini with soft cups or shelf-bras for comfort and ease of movement, since I want to wear them for stand-up paddleboarding. I really like this top, so decided to take a chance. The underwires dig in, but I liked it otherwise. I liked it so much, that I took some sharp scissors, opened the end of the "underwires'' pockets" and removed them. The fit is much more comfortable, and the lack of underwires are unnoticeable.

Agree with the above reviewer. I'm almost 50 and find this suit very flattering. I'm 5'2" and 116 lbs. and the size 4 fits perfectly. In addition, if you are not well-endowed on top, cinching the suit gives the illusion of having more than you do, which for me is a plus. Love it!

Great pick for the transitioning girl to adult
Like many women I struggle with that transition from my 19 year old body to my adult 29 year old body. It is a challenge to find a swim suit that doesn?t look overly mature but is also not to young at the same time. I don?t want to show off all my skin anymore but I didn?t want a one piece either. I had ordered a few tankinis and ended up sending them all back. Then I can across this poke-a-dot top and thought what the heck, I?ll give it one last try. Let me tell you that it is the most flattering swim suit I have ever tried on. Fits me to a tee all over and has the right amount of coverage and reveal, even for my larger chest. I ordered it with my first swim skirt, the same one as shown in black and I love it as well. This is a great pick for anyone who is in the transitioning swimsuit phase of life.
