Women's Plus Size All-over-control Royale Paisley Front Drape Tankini Top
I ordered 2 sizes up and this was still too small!!
I read the reviews and even ordering up, the top was a very poor fit. The proportions were incorrect - the length of the suit was very short. The bra was extremely tight. And this is 2 sizes bigger than I normally wear. The quality also didn't seem up to Land's End standards, but maybe that was because of the poor fit.
I'm very disappointed, I love all my other Land's End suits. This is a beautiful color and pattern. Hoping they come up with a new design.

I ordered this swim top in the black and white. I really like the top and especially the built in bra! The top has nice coverage. I wear a D cup and the support from the underwire bra is very nice. The top comes to me at my natural waist. I would like the top better if were an inch or two longer but I am still pleased with it. I have not tested it in the water yet, however, I expect it will be fine. It is so hard to find swimwear that provides modesty and underwire support in swimwear. I also ordered the black 9" swim shorts to pair with this top. Lands End has always provided quality and outstanding products for ALL.

VA VA VOOM!
I'm a 38DD and this suit top had FANTASTIC SUPPORT for this busty girl. I felt in and up and secure. The adjustable straps help enhance an already great fit. The black and white pattern was pretty and not dated looking like so many plus suits tend to look these days. I must have a short torso (I'm 5'4") because I did not find it too short. The only issue I had was the lower cut and cleavage! Granted, I was super supported and it felt great but I felt too self conscious about the cleavage. If you are a large busted woman and not afraid to flaunt those curves, this is the perfect suit top for you. I'm a bit more modest.

Very small fit
I have ordered several Lands End Bathing suits in the past and all have been terrific. Unfortunately the fit on this one was way off base. I ordered my usual size but the suit was short and very tight around.I ended up returning it. My advice would be to order at least 2-3 sizes larger.

Excellent support but too short
I ordered the 14W and was really pleased with the support this provided. The underwire and non-halter straps in the plus size really helped the construction. I also appreciate the new 14 W size category. However, I will probably return it as I would like it to be a couple of inches longer to feel comfortable.
Lands' End, please offer longer lengths of tankini tops! It would also be helpful to provide the inseam length on the size chart or description so the customer can compare lengths. (Even when I called customer service regarding the lengths of tunic tankini tops, they were often not provided with the measurements.)

well made but very small
The fabric is beautiful and it is very well constructed with much support for large women. But I was so disappointed when I tried it on. It must be a good 2 sizes too short and too tight around. I have several Land's End tankinis so I am familiar with their sizing. These tops must be a mistake. I have reordered 2 sizes above my usual Land's End size.

Short + Tight
Suit looked very well made, but fit was way off for me. Bought the size I would usually wear, but was very short & tight. Returned.
