Women's AquaFitness Butterfly Batik Y-back One Piece Swimsuit
Wish there are size 2 or 4
This is a perfect suit for lap swimmer, great fit and not too boring but unfortunately the smallest is size 6. I wish Lands' End will make size 2 or 4 of this line.

considering I am more of a pear shape, this swimsuit fits comfortably, has great coverage, and does not fall off the shoulders when swimming or diving. I am 5'10 and 165 lbs.

Nice style but ZERO bust support
Color and styling of this suit are cute...but if you have a chest of any size then this probably is not the suit for you. The straps are very thin and stretchy providing absolutely no bust support whatsoever. The extremely thin 'shelf bra' added zero support or coverage. I generally LOVE this line of aqua suits for water aerobics but was extremely disappointed with the total lack of support.
LE BUYERS - - please consider bringing back suits with actual quality sewn-in bra cups rather than shelf linings which really do nothing but give you the 'uni-boob' look.

Great for aquasize class
I do deep water aquasize 2x a week. It is hard working class and I needed a durable and comfortable suit. This is perfect. Fits to size.

Not to size
The swim suit material is beautiful and well sewn. My usual size is an 8; the tag in this suit said it was an 8; there was no shipping error. The suit did not fit. I returned it.

Good suit for lap swimming
Nice fit. The shoulder straps with clip back is very comfortable. High enough in front to "keep it all in" but low enough to feel cool. I like this suit. Wish it came in some other color combos.

I have been buying Lands End swimsuits for years, always a size 6 and never a problem. However, I have bought two of the fitness suits for lap swimming and had to return both. They are very baggy in the rear end and loose overall. Suits for lap swimming should fit snug and not sag. So, I have been using the tugless tank suits that I have for lap swimming instead. I have noticed that either the chlorine or the heat from soaking in the hot tub after my workout is eating the suit a bit quickly, I may have to go back to Speedos for this product.

good but not great
I really wanted to love this suit. The fabric is silky, and the pattern is pretty. And I am getting tired of solid color suits with a little stripe or piping. I swim laps several days a week, and it's not easy to find suits with shelf bras. So I was excited to try out my new batik-patterned suit. Good breast support. Comfortable back. But my old suit is just a better cut (aqua fitness butterfly scoop -- I must have half a dozen of them). This one rides up a little as I swim. I think it's because of the thin straps. I hesitated to buy another aqua fitness butterfly scoop because the reviews said it's not as good as it used to be. Maybe it would still have been a better choice because of the wider straps. Please, Lands' End, give us a suit in that cut but with fabric like this one has!

There's something off about the chest fit.
I love LE suits, and was glad to see that they'd started making "active" swimsuits again with thin straps and shelf bras. As an "well-endowed" Masters' swimmer, the wide strap suits chafe too much through a long hard workout, but the lack of chest support in regular swimsuits (think: "Speedo, TYR, etc.") is definitely not flattering for my D-cups.
So, I was prepared to love this suit (and order multiples). However, the fit is funny on the top of the suit; as previous reviewers noted, the top doesn't lie flat against the chest, and in my case, it even dipped out. Additionally, the straps seemed like they were too close together, perhaps promoting the puckering.
Unfortunately, the look was too unflattering for me -- so the suit got returned. But LE, can you redesign the suit to fit better (and not give up on us "active" sorts)?

Great looking suit
I was looking for a suit with small(ish) straps to minimize tan lines with an interesting back for my daily lap swimming fitness able to handle start off dives and flip turns. I have a curvy figure (size 14) and average bust (C cup). This suit is a little roomy on top. and I can feel some pull when I do my start off dive and it doesn't lay flat on my chest during my lap, so there's some drag. It may just run a little big and I may have been better ordering a size 12. However, this suit handles flip turns well, stays in place on my "full" backside, is super comfortable and looks great! If I had a bigger bust it would probably be perfect with 5 stars! :)
