Women's Plus Size Beach Living Bardot Floral Scoopneck One Piece Swimsuit with Tummy Control
Heavy fabric, weird under wire
I ordered this in an 8 long. Granted, I could have gone up a size...I wear a 6 in clothing, but find that LE suits typically fit comfortably in a 10. Having said that, the fabric of this suit was very tight, heavy, and uncomfortable. As others have said, the under wire doesn't lay flat, but sticks out awkwardly at the bottom. This seems to be an issue in suits, unless the under wire is attached to a bottom band that continues to the back, and can be adjusted like a bra. This one is going back, unfortunately.

I have 2 of these suits in different colors! I'm a big girl & was looking for an underwire. I feel so confident in this suit. It holds everything in!
It fits true to size.
Price was great.
Love the pattern/colors.
Great for a "BIG girl".

Very Generous Cup Sizes!
I ordered the same cup size that I wear in several Soma bras-DDD. This was way too big in the chest! In general very true to size in the body and bum. A bonus was adjustable shoulder straps and the underwire makes this suit very supportive. I will reorder both 1 and 2 cup sizes down to find the best fit! Well made and sturdy fabric; exited to find the right fit and hit the beach on vacation!

Great fit on top, not on bottom
The leg holes on this were so tight I felt like my circulation was getting cut off. It made an unattractive bulge as well. It's very unfortunate as the top fit my G cup breasts perfectly and the suit had great shape overall. So sad to have to send it back.

Underwire cups are awkward
I ordered this suit in a 14 DDD and it arrived quickly and is very well made. My issue is with the underwire cups - the inside ends poke up and stick out the top of the suit, this is really obvious because the lining is white. The padding in the cups is pretty heavy-duty, not really what a large-busted woman wants. I may return it for a smaller suit without underwire.

Makes big busts look too big
The fabric is REALLY tight. I purchased a 12DD and a 14DD as I wasn't certain which would fit better in the cup. Underwire is uncomfortable as it doesn't fully get under your breasts and doesn't fit that well as there is a lot of extra material to adjust up into your armpits. The print and fit make bust look much larger than they are (compared to my Grecian swimsuit from Lands End). Overall, frumpy look. Model is a twig so you have to consider this. Wish they could figure out a way to make swimsuits like good fitting bras.

Returned this suit
I ordered my regular size, 18 with cup size DD. The cups size was far too large to fit a DD or even DDD. It seemed more like an E cup. There was a little extra fabric in the seat which made it seem like it could fit a long torso. The tummy control fabric gave just the right control and a slimming profile. Perhaps this was a fluke, but the bust size was far too large for me. If you could get the right cup size, this suit would be flattering. The suit was returned.

Used to love Land's End swimsuits and this looked like a keeper. But after ordering and trying on, the bottom sagged and looked terrible. Purchased both the tummy control and non-tummy control and both suits sagged in the bottom. The fabric was good and the top was attractive. Both suits were returned.

I ordered this in size 12 for a well-developed 12 year old because of the D cup.
I ordered this for a well-developed 12 year old because of the D cup and because of the front adjustment tie. However, it did not provide enough coverage for her; too much cleavage. I gave it to an older person,with a smaller bust-line, and this suit looks quite glamorous. The fabric looks nice. Compared to other Land's End suits I have bought, this size 12 seemed to fit small.

Comfortable Full Coverage Suit
Great suit for large busts. Full coverage without being too restrictive. I agree with some reviewers that the bust cups blow up with air when worn, especially in the hot tub which is where I wear it the most. However, this is a very common problem for suits for big busts DD/DDD+ where there is a built-in full coverage underwire bra since they can't sew down the underwire. It is a trade off and I am happy to have the lined underwire support for when I am walking or laying around.
