Women's Plus Size AquaFitness Butterfly Scoop One Piece Swimsuit with Tummy Control
These are great suits for water aerobics, they last for a very long time!
Due to the nature of the fabric, they run small compared to your regular sizing. I recommend going up a size. The quality is exceptional and the fabric does not denigrate with frequent pool use. It is also smooth on your skin which prevents irritation while swinging one's arm in water classes. I prefer the clip back versus the criss-cross back, comfort wise, however, they both work for water aerobics. I have had my first suit for going on two years now and it looks nearly like new.

Bra pocket opening is too small.
I have bought numerous Landsend Tugless Tank mastectomy swimsuits for my mom over the years, and she has LOVED them and had no complaints whatsoever. I bought this suit for Mom because it's fancier in design than the simple Tugless Tank suits, but she was very disappointed to tell me that the bra pocket openings are too small. Mom never had this problem with the Tugless Tanks.

I use this suit for shallow and deep-water aerobics. Fits snugly but comfortably. Good support, especially if the "girls" are on the larger side.

Would like to buy another, but not available!
Bought this suit for my daughter's swim club sessions, and she loves it. Would like to buy the black one too, but sizes not available. It stays in place during rigorous lifeguard training, the fabric is holding up well, and it hasn't stretched out. Please re-stock these suits, and perhaps add more of these 'aquafit' styles to your selection.

I love this suit but it is is more revealing than I would like it to be when it comes to my behind. I need a little more coverage for my behind..

Good for lap swimming
This is a good, athletic-looking suit. I am 5'10" and it is short but in the water it doesn't bug me. Dries quickly. It is hard to get into, but I am getting used to it. It definitely squashes my boobs down but am not wearing it to impress anyone! Just bought another one for back-up. Was having a hard time finding an athletic plus-sized suit and was happy to find this.

Good suit for water aerobics
The aqua fitness suits hold up to the chlorine and this style provides the support needed for water aerobics. It is a little hard to get off, since there isn't a clasp at the back of the neck, but that's a minor detail in the scheme of things. I find all the Lands' End suits run small, so I buy a size larger than I do for most of my other clothes which works consistently.

Swimsuit of Great Quality
I swim 5 days a week, all year long. I have purchased similar suits (chlorine resistant) from Lands' End prior to this one.
In the other models there is netting in the bra. That netting will wear out and rip after awhile, a long while however! The difference in this suit is there is no netting in the bra, which indicates to me that the entire suit will wear forever! I have had my other two suits for about a year. I still use those suits.
This suit is an exceptional buy. You really get what you pay for. I felt that the suit was true to size as well. They do tend to stretch out somewhat over time, so if you order your "actual" size you should be pleased. Even though I have seen other reviews that were to the contrary, I felt that mine fit great, albeit a little "snug" at first.
I am so pleased with the quality of Lands' End chlorine resistant suits, that I do recommend them highly and I gave them 5 stars to prove it!!

Mastectomy pockets are too small
I have bought Lands End swimsuits for years. I purchased a suit similar to this one and it lasted well and fit well. It had hooks at the back of the neck which I liked better than this one. The problem has been that with the last 3 or 4 mastectomy suits I have ordered, the pocket in the bra was too small for my prosthesis which is only a B cup. On the first suit, I clipped the opening larger, but it continued to tear to the point that my prosthesis almost fell out. When I ordered this suit, I ordered 4 suits in order to find one that would barely allow me to stuff my prosthesis into it and then returned the others. A prosthesis is expensive and should not be treated so roughly. Please check your manufacturing and design to ensure they meet the needs you claim they meet.

Great Mastectomy Suit
This is my second LE mastectomy suit (first one was a Grecian One Piece-last yr LE made it with a mastectomy option). I am giving this one 5 boats BECAUSE of the compression bra...it holds the prosthetics firmly in place. However, I can see it being difficult to get into if you have limited shoulder mobility. I ordered a size 20. I am 5'2, 165 lbs and generally wear 14/16. I am glad I ordered a regular torso rather than petite. It fits perfectly...no baggy bums!
