Women's Beach Living Floral Princess Bikini Top
Best bikini top ever! Please, LE, keep it but update the patterns.
When the description said it was "modest," I almost didn't buy this bikini top, since the patterns are a bit traditional/floral for me. But I'm SO glad I did! It is, bar none, the most comfortable, most secure, most supportive, most flattering bikini top I've worn. The design of the straps (coming up the side of the bust) provides extra support and avoids the, ahem, "girls traveling wide" issue that I have with the LE tankini tops. The band has three little channels where the hook can go, so it's adjustable. The straps are great! Adjustable, and none of that annoying halter cutting into neck. The cut has a retro vibe. I recommend pairing it with the "mini SwimMini," which also walks that line between great cut and flattering the 38 year old body.
Please, Lands End, keep this bikini top, but in prints that are a little more up to date. Or go full-on retro with polka dots!

Finally, a perfect top!
This is a great top for someone with a small bust and slight build. I am 5” 3” and 105 pounds and 32A (probably closer to 32AA or AAA). I have been frustrated with tankini tops that have deep v-necks, underwire, and padding more appropriate for regular or large busted women. They reveal too much or just do not fit. This has just the right amount of padding and no underwire. It fits, and is comfortable and modest. I ordered a size 2 and a size 4 just in case, and in this style the size 2 was just right.

Almost perfect but not quite
The top fits perfectly and gives a lot of support as a bikini, but I just could not get over the diagonal (asymmetric) ruching and will have to return it.

comfortable and support without an underwire
I'm 5'1" 117 pounds 32C / 34B and very fit. I prefer a 32 to an 34 but either works for me. I purchased this in a 2 and a 4. both fit but the 2 felt a little snug around the ribcage so i took the 4. SO GLAD. The shirring is a tiny bit too much in the front... i would have preferred in a smooth fabric but I'm happy i purchased it and would do so again in a heartbeat. I wish it came in solid colors like coral or teal or navy. Very happy. great job lands end.

Holds it all in
I like the colorful pattern and wanted a bikini top to go with my solid black swim bottoms. This top hold everything in and is supportive while it flatters.

Best. Swim. Top. Ever!
This fit is amazing for the small busted ladies! Its not a push-up so there is no risk of an embarrassing fall out, yet it somehow makes me look more "womanly". For the first time, since having children ten years ago, I am excited to go to the beach!!! Sooooo happy with this top! Thank you LE!

My Very 1st Bikini!
I've long wanted to try wearing one, not that I've got a good bod, but those that I've tried never fit well and nice. I decided to try this after reading the reviews and the fit is very good! I've got tried this in 2 colors and I'm keeping both just in case I can't find another as good in future. :)

The perfect top
This is a fantastic top. It is so comfortable, and so flattering. I am 135 lbs, 5'6", and a 36B/34C bra size. I am a true size 6 and I took a 6 in this top. I love the over the shoulder straps, opposed to halter. It's flattering and comfortable. I love that it is slimming on the sides and flatters the bust. When I bent down the cups do not gape open, which is often a problem I have since I have lost some mass on the ops of my breasts since having my children. I ordered it in the Riviera Rose color, and it is very beautiful and bright. The bottoms shown were not available anymore so I ordered the regular bikini bottoms in the orange color, and a mini swim mini in the bright pink color. I like them both and plan on keeping both bottoms so I have some options. I can't imagine anyone not being happy with this top. In my opinion, a large busted women may have success with this top as well, because there is a lot of structure to it and seems very supportive and has complete coverage. LANDS END: Please bring this top back this year and offer new designs and colors. It's a real winner. My mom has this top in the tankini version, and she loves it as well. Thank you Lands End for making real clothes for real people. Lands end is fast becoming my go to company for clothes for myself and my family. I appreciate you keeping your prices fair, and doing great sales and promotions.

I chose this bikini top as a mix and match item. It will be perfect with my boy shorts bottoms.
I ordered 1 size down as per some of the reviews I read and I am glad it did.
