Women's Beach Living Batik Dot Twist Front Swimdress
Exactly what I was looking for.
This suit fit slightly too large but I took it in in the back which was very easyI'm glad I ordered the size I did, though, because the bra cups fit perfectly. I've had 3 kids and this suit is perfect for me (sucks everything in and holds everything up). It's very flattering and very comfortable

I loved this swim dress but was to big for me and smaller size had sold out. Very well made as all of Lands End products are.

cute style, cute print
This is such a great suit! The longer length skirt is exactly what I was looking for (and I knew it would be, since I have almost the same style in a solid color). I can sit, I can chase the grands around the pool, and keep the thighs under cover. The dress floats freely over the swimsuit, the straps adjust, and the top coverage is enough to be modest but not matronly. The size runs true.
The only drawback is that the heavier fabric (which adds to the modesty and figure-skimming benefits) does take longer to dry. If this were your only suit, that might be a problem.
LANDS END, please keep this suit in your line up for next year!

Great flattering swimsuit!
I love the way this suit looks, the fabric is heavy and the suit is well made. Love the color! I wanted a longer swim dress, and this is a perfect length. I am a size 8 and it fits really well.

Just Not Flattering
I had high hopes for this pricy suit, but they were dashed. I'm 5'4", and it's a very unflattering length--it comes too far down the thigh. The inner lining did nothing to help shape my torso, and you can see every bump. The shirred bust fabric is pretty, but the underwire was just not that supportive. Perhaps I got a size too large, but I measured carefully and used the sizing chart. Finally, the cup padding that free floats--rather than being sewn in--is a nightmare. The padding in one cup was all twisted and bunched, and there was just no way to smooth it out and position it when it was bone dry. Can't imagine how it could possibly work when wet! I found this suit unflattering and aging and I won't be keeping it.

It is NOT true to size... Was very disappointed and in process of returning product.

Great quality fabric, really uncomfortable underwire
I have a different swim dress from Lands' End that I LOVE and is super comfortable, so I decided to buy another one at the end-of-season sale price. The under wire in this one was so uncomfortable I took it right back off. My other one doesn't have under wire and still provides plenty of support. This suit is made of quality fabric and that does mean it is heavier than the cheaper quality suits you might find other places, but I never had a problem with it being to heavy when wet. The only general complaint about high quality, heavier fabric is it is a little tricky to pull back up after using the bathroom when the suit is wet. But totally worth it. I have worn my other swim dress 3 summers in a row, so at least 100 times and I am very satisfied with how well it has worn.

Nice style and design
While nice style and color the size 18 runs tighter than I would have liked it too. Wish companies would have the same size across the board and not have the discrepancies. Inside bra took a little to get used to and get adjusted rightnsomit wouldn't show.

not what expected
I purchased your swim dress last year and was very pleased with the fit , look and comfort, however, this year's model is a dissapiontment! My issue is mainly the bust line and underwire bra which don't seem to match up making it very unflattering. I also found the skirt too flared for my body shape. I am a 4 on bottom and 6 on top. I bought the 6. After reading other reviews I find several that had an issue with the underwire bra. Last year's was fine. Why did you make these changes? Unfortunately I have to return this .

Pretty in pink!
This is not your grandma's swimdress! It is a vibrant, but not loud, pink. The fit is very flattering. The under layer holds everything in comfortably and the outer skirt skims over it giving a smooth appearance. The fabric is on the thicker side, but is silky smooth and makes you look that way too - no lumps or bumps! If you are worried about drying time, have a suit to wear on alternate trips to the pool or beach. The skirt ends mid thigh, so resembles a sun dress more than a bathing suit. The twisted front of the top is very feminine and the cup provides good coverage, but the middle does dip down to the band (as shown in the photo) and does show cleavage. The underwire provides lift and keeps the top in place in and out of the water. My only suggestions for improvement would be to make the straps slightly wider to add support and comfort and to please sew in the padding in the bra. Removable pads sound like a good idea, but if you choose to use them they are VERY difficult to smooth out after you get the suit on.
