Women's Beach Living Bardot Floral Adjustable Scoopneck Tankini Top
Do not purchase this swim top!
I bought this swim top last August. Within six weeks of being in the water 2 to 3 hours a week, the color started to fade. Then at 8 weeks, one of the back strap hooks broke. Then at 11 weeks the other back strap hook broke. Well, I made those repairs and lived with the fading color because of budget considerations. I quit swimming in the winter and then wore it this way several more months. Then one day the whole thing just lost it's composure and stretched uncontrollably. I bought a new suit from another site and happily threw this one away today. Good riddin suit and good ridden Lands End. Your suits used to be so great, what happen?

Love the suit - The straps No so much...
This is the first suit in a while that was flattering, fit nicely, and didn't have boob overflowing. Downside is that after several months of wear the undersized metal clasp that holds the straps on snapped off. That made for a fun day out...

NOT a good choice for DDD - straps are horrid!
I have loved Lands End DDD suits for years, but they aren't the same anymore. The straps on this top are like loose elastic and provide NO support at all.

Very flattering, great fit!
Beautiful fabric, full abdominal coverage with length falling at the hip. I ordered the 10, I am 5'5", 140 lb, with an athletic build, it fits comfortably around my abdomen and is not snug fitting or body hugging at the abdominal area. I also purchased 42847-5WX8 tankini top and love it as much, same size and nearly the same style. These are very flattering and pretty.

Short but sweet
I am 6' tall with a long body but this suit is SO short. As I live overseas I wont be returning it but the colour is delightful and the material is great for the price. I have worn this size L.E. swimsuit before, but this one is a shorty. The bottom never arrived with it so I'll wait to see how the tops looks with a different mini, as right now my naval is showing and it's not my best feature! I'm also large-chested and curvy so swimsuits are hard work, but this top would look great on a similar body shape but who is not as tall as me.

looks great but one problem
I purchased this tankini top and liked the fit and style so much that I bought two more in different colors. However, when I went on vacation last week I discovered that when you are in the water the top half of the cups fills with air and your breasts look like helium balloons! While it made for great laughs by family and strangers, that isn't what I look for in a bathing suit. I assume that the holes with which you can remove the pads fill with air and water between the layers of the cups. If you are a seamstress perhaps sewing shut the holes would help. As much as I like the suit, I wish I could return them. If you never go into the water the top is great, but if you do, watch out for the balloon effect!

Finally a suit that fits!!
I have always dreaded shopping for swimsuits because I could never find one that fit properly in the bust. I am 5'4", 135-140 lbs and a 34DD. In clothing I wear a petite 12 top and reg size 10 pants/skirts. So buying bigger sizes -14 and up,was what I started doing, but the swimsuits never fit me -I would spill out of the top but the rest would be too big, therefore, I was always self-conscious being at a pool or beach.. Department stores only offer D cups in swimwear and they never fit me, either. I decided to take a chance and try Lands' End....Hooray!! I am thrilled with this adjustable scoopneck tankini in the Bardot Azalea. I took a guess and ordered a 12 DD. It arrived and I tried it on immediately. Perfect fit. You can adjust the straps and wear two ways in back, criss -crossed or straight. I was able to order the azalea swim mini in a size 10 to match-another hooray! I can't believe I hadn't tried Lands' End sooner. I hope they continue making this suit because I plan on buying more in the future. One detail is especially nice -the drawstring on the top so you can have more or less coverage of cleavage, since sometimes the bust changes at different times of the month. Buy this suit in your regular size and order the cup size of your bra and you will be set. Thank you Lands' End for making bra -sized suits for hard to fit women!! I will no longer dread shopping for bathing suits now that I know where to shop. It's easy to order online from the comfort of your home without having to try on in those harsh department store lights!

Clasps in the back break
I bought 2 of these suits in DDD. The clasps on the straps in the back have broken, one clasp on one suit and both on the second. The clasp is the same size as those on a C or D cup suit. Very disappointing as it is a cute suit. Why offer a DDD if the clasp cannot hold up? These suits are less than a month old.
