Women's Beach Living Adjustable Scoopneck Tankini Top
Great the first time but not as much after a few wearings.
This top fit very well the first time I wore it. It is one of the only suits that feels like it has enough support on the top. I wore it to a water park and didn't feel like I was going to fall out of it and there wasn't too much jiggling. I ordered it in an 8 DDD. After the first day though the underwire started to poke me and by the fourth day it was quite irritating on the side. I need to find a way to fix this part as the rest of the suit was great and really meets my needs.

Good fit and support.
It fit perfectly. It was just what I expected based on what I saw online.

Bra top clings to your body making for a more modest fit. Great material weight, and lightweight padding

I'm looking for another style
I have three adjustable scoop neck tankini tops, after a few months, the wires in the underwire started poking into my sides. The top gaps open a bit in the middle, even after tightening the shirring. The removable pads that line the cups are difficult to straighten out after washing. I avoid these tops when getting ready to go to the beach or pool.

Solid color shows all the flaws
The solid color of this top shows all the figure flaws. I also could not get a good fit, although I tried every possible size for my figure. The inserts in the bra were strange. They arrived bent and gave a funny shape to my bust.

Good purchase at this price
I enjoyed wearing this on our recent holiday, although it has an inbuilt bra and padding, which is difficult to wear, especially in the surf. I cut out the inner lining and they are less bulky. I would order a size down, as the bottom half of the top is very loose.

Great overall fit, good support
This by far is the best fitting suit for my D-cup body size. Great underwire support and comes in many different colors, both solids and prints throughout the Land's End catalog. On a recent trip I played beach volleyball wearing this suit and felt comfortable and was not "falling out" of my suit. Adjustable straps are great too! I have 6 different colors that I have purchased over the years, they wash up nicely and coordinate well with many swim-minis offered in the Land's End catalog.

Straps uncomfortably skinny
I really wanted to like this - am so frustrated that Lands End has almost no swimsuit tops with decent coverage anymore! please, some of us don't like deep v necks that show cleavage!! - but despite the fact that the neckline is ok, the straps are so skinny that for anyone with any chest to support they dig into your shoulders in a way that is almost immediately painful. I couldn't wait to take this off for that reason. So disappointing!

I love these tankinis
This is a great tankini. I am past the bikini stage so this makes me feel like I am still wearing a 2-piece and not offending. I like that the straps are adjustable. I have a short torso and find it difficult to find suits that fit without falling off my shoulders. My only complaint about this line is that it takes quite a while to dry even in our very hot Florida heat. I have 4 of these and another in a slightly different style. So I can mix and match the tops and bottoms.

Runs small around the chest, but the cups run big. It also has tight straps.
I'm about 5' 6" and normally wear a size 14 in clothes and a 38 or 40 D in bras, so I ordered a size 14 D cup Long (because I wanted to be sure it covered my belly). Well, I'm certainly glad I ordered the long, because I suspect that a regular would have left my belly exposed. But it's really tight around my chest, and the cups are so big that the material wrinkles up in the front, even when I just adjust the drawstring between the breasts. Certainly not flattering. So because the cups run so big, it made the under-wires go really far down onto my belly. They definitely weren't where they should be, so it made the tankini very uncomfortable. Also, even though the straps are adjustable, they're still too tight even at the loosest setting. I ended up having to cut the tankini on the inside and remove both the underwires and the cup padding for it to look somewhat decent and be somewhat comfortable. Unfortunately, though, I'm not sure I'll be wearing it because it's still really tight around the chest. I may end up having to remove the entire inner bra part. It's a shame the inner bra part isn't adjustable, around the chest. If I was to order again, I'd order a size 16 C cup Long. One general size up, but one cup size down.
