Women's Beach Living Bardot Floral Scoopneck One Piece Swimsuit
Runs VERY small
Even though it's a nice suit for the money, it runs extremely small. If you order, get at least 2 sizes larger. I ordered a 10 (which is what my other swimsuits are) and could hardly get it on.

For years I have purchased Land's End bathing suits because I am tall and a lot of my height is in my torso, but the fit of the suits of late is off.
I read the reviews of this suit and took a chance anyway - should have listened to the reviewers. The suit is completely lined, which makes it heavy. It has a huge underwire, cannot imagine swimming or exercising in it. The leg opening was too big, which made for a very strange feel.
LE - whoever is styling your suits and manufacturing them needs to go. They are just not fitting right and you are offering so few long torso styles. I have had to return almost everyone I have ordered.

I've never found a decent bathing suit until now. I'm 5'8"/140 lbs/36DD, & it's near impossible to find a suit that's great-looking & supportive. I ordered size 8, 36DD... probably could have gone w/ long torso, but this works fine. The material is great & I love the built-in bra. It's comfortable & pretty. Well worth paying a little extra to have a high-quality bathing suit that may last years, rather than a cheap one that doesn't fit right/support & pops a strap at the wrong time. Highly recommended!

Great fit! Thank you Lands End!
I ordered a size 6 DDD cup and it fits perfectly! Excellent coverage and support for playing at the beach. Love the material, pattern, and color. It's really hard to find a suit in larger cup sizes that is not old ladyish! So thank you, Lands End!

I hate suit shopping
I typically wear about a 6. I am 5'6, small bust (or not much at all).
I do NOT like anything tight and clingy or girdle-like. Can't stand nylons since everything went to control top and don't wear them any more. You get the picture. Unless I am on vacation or bloaty I don't really need a slim suit and would rather be comfortable.
I had tried the same suit in control slim style and it was too tight, but the problem with both is that the underwire wires poke out of the top of the suit in the middle. My shape doesn't hold them down. cuter in the blue/green but more comfortable than the control style.

Pretty but Functional
I have a very hard time finding decent bathing suits even in brick and mortar stores where I can try on a multitude of styles. I have a very straight silhouette and most suits are made for curvier women. I have bought three suits from Lands End (two when I was 40 pounds heavier and one recently) and they all fit perfectly. It was tricky to pick a size because my hips and bust call for two sizes smaller than my waist, so I split the difference. It's a bit snug to get on (but I did buy a tummy control suit, which is at least have to blame), but it fits beautifully. I love how the top is adjustable to change the look and it really stays put, a pretty suit that works even cannon-balling with my sons!

Stiff & Smelly
I purchased this bathing suit in a size 2 tall. It was still a tad short for me. I have broad shoulders and a long torso. 5'5 & approx. 105 lbs. It was not a good fit or comfortable. I found the bathing suit to be stiff in the cup and strap area. Felt more like a contraption than a comfy bathing suit. Despite the poor fit for me, the worst thing about this bathing suit was the horrid smell. The suit had a very strong, rotten chemical type smell. It's hard to describe, but it was overwhelming as soon as I opened the package. I almost didn't try it on. Had it been a good fit, I think I probably would have sent it back anyway due to the odor. The print and color are pretty though.

Fantastic suit...very flattering!
I love this suit! I ordered three or four different suits from Lands End (tankinis with matching bottoms) and this was the only one-piece suit I tried. I am 5'5" and 170 lbs with a large bust. I ordered size 14 in DDD. The top is adjustable and you can increase/decrease the amount of cleavage you show as well as the size of the arm openings. It's great b/c I can cinch it when I'm getting some sun, and then I pull it back up to cover more when I'm in the pool playing with the kids and I don't want to bubble out of the top of the suit. The entire suit is flattering with all-over control. The suit kind of has two layers of fabric, the one you see and the one inside sucking everything in :) The tummy control is great and the whole suit just smooths everything out and even pulls it all in a bit.

Great fitting swimsuit!
I ordered this suit in long as I have a long torso. It's perfect. Also, the design of the pattern definitely camouflages my lumps and bumps! Thanks, Lands End, for a quality product.

Love it... and it works with a full bust
Ordered this suit in a D cup, blue Bardot floral. The color is maybe a little brighter than on my screen, but gorgeous. I was worried that the narrow straps wouldn't work with a full bosom or that the adjustable parts would always be out of wack, but they're not and I really love it. There is a small bump each side where the outside ends of the wires poke outward slightly- I still love it. I did NOT get the tummy control suit and am glad because it doesn't feel like a compression suit like some of my others.
