Women's AquaFitness FlutterKick Scoop One Piece Swimsuit
I bought this suit at a Lands End Inlet store in Minneapolis while I was visiting last summer, along with two Aqua Terra Pieces made of nylon and spandex which all matched. The fit was about one size larger than usual, but I love the supportive bra and flattering stripes. I am a person who teaches water aerobics and swims 3-7 times/week, and this fabric is holding up nicely. The polyester fabric has not faded, where the nylon Aqua Terra suits did. Please have more suits made out of this fabric. Can the lining and elastic be made of the same stuff as well? For the expense, I really like a suit that holds up in chlorine and lasts longer than a few months. Thanks!

just what I wanted
I am glad that I followed reviews and ordered down a size. Normally in suits I wear a 10, which is what I ordered in a different Land's End suit, but on this suit I ordered an 8. Fit is perfect and so far it is holding up well to chlorine in the pool. The design makes for a flattering suit.

Excellent suit for chlorine pool
I have purchased two of these suits over the last three years. The suit does run large, so order a size down. The suit is very comfortable and is excellent in chlorine. However, the mesh lining holding the bra cups in place will eventually disintegrate and fall apart. The suit can still be used without this mesh.

BEST SUIT I HAVE FOUND IN YEARS WITH CUP SIZES THANK YOU!!
I have had this suit for a year now and I love it!! It is GREAT TO HAVE A MODEST NECKLINE AND CUP SIZES THAT PROVIDE SUPPORT AND COVERAGE for those of us who need it. The leg cuts are modest too, which this stylish grandma who swims laps on a regular basis appreciates, and THE FABRIC LASTS, thank you CHLORINE PROOF FABRIC!!!! I swim 2-3 times a week and get tired of swim suits that fall apart quickly. I came back to buy another color and I was so disappointed that it looks like Land's End is discontinuing THE ONE GREAT LAP SWIMSUIT THAT HAS CUP SIZES......please bring the style back again next year. Black with hot pink stripes would be great. BUT PLEASE PLEASE BRING BACK THIS SUIT!!!

I purchased this suit in both colors. After reading the reviews that it runs big, I ordered my regular size, instead of sizing up as I usually do with swimsuits. I could have sized down one size because it does run big. I can put it on and take it off without undoing the back clasp! Cute swimsuit for aquafitness classes.

I have difficulty finding swimsuits that cover my chest (I'm pretty large on top) and find that the molded cups are more of an annoyance than help. I recently purchased this swimsuit really not knowing what to expect but I'm so glad I did. It fits and covers everything (purchased the DDD cup). I don't have to worry about wardrobe malfunctions during my swimming lessons. The clasp in the back is fine. You don't have to undo it to slip it on. The strawberry color is a little loud for my tastes (think of a strawberry slushy--not deep but still bright) but I can deal with it. Unlike the other reviewers, I found it true to size so I have no issues. I also can't comment on fading yet as I just got it. So far, I'm really happy.

this suit is really cut large
I live in the pool and was looking for something to outlast the tugless tank. I usually wear a size 10 in the tugless tank, but this is gi-normous! If you are big busted this suit is for you. I liked the color, fabric feels really light but I will have to return it.

Too big but okay suit
I bought a size 14 in three suits. The others fit well, so I recommend ordering one size smaller than the chart shows. Everything was too big. The lining of the bra raised out of the top, the fit was loose all over, & the back gapped. The fabric is not as soft and smooth as the tugless tank, either. It would be all right for my pool purposes with my young son, but I didn't realize how low the scoop in the back is. Too much "back padding" showing for my taste.
