Rated 4 out of 5 by ElizabethMM Good fit for a tall, thin girl, but...
At 5'5" my 12 year-old daughter has trouble finding one-piece suits that fit (even two-piece are tough). This one is just the right length and fits nicely. However, the only drawback is that it does not have a shelf bra. When a girl fits a size 14 a shelf bra is really necessary. A shelf bra would make this suit perfect. I hope Lands' End will consider that feature for future suits.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Annie89 Just bought a second one
I recently wore out one of these and ordered another as a replacement. I swim laps once a week for 30 minutes in a chlorinated pool. I don't expect a swimsuit to last forever. I like everything about this suit - the fit, the styling, the comfort. The last one lasted me almost two years, which I consider very reasonable for the price. I went with navy this time for a small change (my first one was black). Very pleased.

My daughter uses this suit for swim team. She has difficulty finding a comfy-fitting suit thru their pro shop. This is our 4th year in these suits and they've really withstood the test of time!

Rated 4 out of 5 by LGlad This swim suit is exactly what we wanted.
My granddaughter needed a black swim suit for her swim team and this was perfect. It is hard to find just black these days and the stripe down the sides is just the right size to give it a little character but be within the guildlines of the team color. The suit seems to run true to size and doesn't get baggy when wet. the Y-back is great because the strapes don't come off the shoulders. I would have given this 5 stars but this is the first time we have bought it and I want to see if the color will hold up with numerous practices in the pool water. So far I as very pleased with it and would buy another when this gets to small.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dez A great swimsuit.
I bought this for the kids. I liked the look of it and sure enough it looked so good on them. It is very flattering. I think both my girls are just too tall in the torso, because it was just a teensy bit too snug in the length for them. I really didn't want to send it back, but I had too. I will keep looking for this same style in a bit longer torso.

Rated 2 out of 5 by JHarder Great Cut -- Terrible Craftsmanship
I guess there must be a first for everything -- I am not going to give Lands End 5 stars for this product. I love the cut of this swimsuit. It is modest yet has allows enough movement for the competitive swimmer. But this swimsuit is NOT for the competitive swimmer. My daughter swims 3 times a week for only 1 1/2 hours each workout. She started wearing this suit a month ago, and the seams are failing. I'm going to have to do a mend job this afternoon before she swims. There is no way this would make it through her actual competition season -- 2 hours a day, 5 days a week. Perhaps if your kid is getting this suit for a 45 minute swim lesson for a month it would be okay. Otherwise, shop somewhere else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TnTMom Great swim suit
My daughter swim on a competitive swim team and we love these suits. She is tall with a long torso and theses give her plenty of room. Sides are modest and not cut too high. Razor back is perfect so her straps aren't falling off her shoulders. Very good quality.

Rated 2 out of 5 by JGBelchak Somewhat pleased
I originally ordered this suit for my daughter to wear to a swim meet as we needed a plain black that wasn't too expensive. I tried many suits on her at the local swim shop and she fit a 12 so that is what I ordered. To say it was too big is an understatement. So I exchanged it for a 10, which fits everywhere except around the upper back/shoulders, which is loose. It will work for now but it is not ideal.
