Women's Petite Beach Living Halter Tunic Top
I have ordered many many bathing suits from lands end over the years. Usually a number of sizes and styles to try on at home and easily return to my local Sears store. I have it narrowed down to halter styles in a petite 12 that works best for my body. (5'3" and 165lbs) I am happy with how this suit fits in the chest. Supports and flatters nicely. I am a little disappointed with how loose the torso area is and it is still pretty long for a petite. It looks fine outside the water, but when I am in the water it floats up around my chest. Not a good look and has me constantly pulling it back down. But this could be a good thing for some. I am keeping it because I like the way the chest area fits and I will deal with the loose torso.

I have a small bust and larger bottom and thighs and found that this top does a great job of enhancing on top and concealing on the bottom. I normally wear a petite 4 and ordered my usual size and it fits great. The deep sea color is a great shade of blue. The quality of the material is just right, not too heavy or light and the shirring on the sides helps to not highlight any extra middle-aged padding. I ordered the high-rise adjustable bottoms in the same color to go with it and love the extra coverage for the upper thighs. I was so happy to get this on sale too! Love this suit and would highly recommend it.

Just too much fabric
I really wanted this suit to work because the top part of it fit perfectly (32DD which is hard to find), but the tummy was a total disaster. Just too much fabric no matter what size I tried. It made my fairly smallish tummy look big. The ties fell so awkwardly at the hips- they just drew the eye there and made me look very pear shaped (which to be fair I sort of am, but this suit really drove home the point). This might work well for someone trying to camouflage a tummy - if you can figure out what to do with those odd tie sides. Such a shame because the top part of it was really perfect.

The halter style, crisscross band under the chest, shirred sides, and the length add up to the most flattering swim top I've owned! The style and fit is slimming and makes me look more defined through the waistline than any other swim top I've tried. Even when I bend down everything stays put up top. I ordered black with a print flounce swim mini and it looks modest yet stylish and not at all frumpy. I also like it with bikini bottoms or swim shorts - it's versatile. Keep these styles coming, Lands' End!

My absolute favorite suite. Comfortable, supportive, and coverage without being dowdy. PLEASE make the plus sizes available in the same cute stripes and polka dots as the regular sizes. As a young plus-size woman with an ample bust (and there lots of women like me) I need something cute and trendy. Enough with the paisley!

Great for small busts
This was a fantastic buy for me. I'm 5'2" and 125lbs with a small bust (A cup). Usually the size 6 tanking tops are too tight (I have wide shoulders) and the built in bras are too big and get floppy in the water but I can't get a bigger size because the bust becomes a big empty foam space. This swimsuit solves all of this. The 6p fit perfectly without being too tight (tunic cut is the best) and my post pregnancy pooch is well hidden. I even look like I have cleavage thanks to the deep v and the twisted fabric.

Attractive and very easy to wear! No binding or pulling - forgot I was even wearing it. Purchased one for myself and one for my daughter and we felt like we looked great - both plus sizes and they fit beautifully!
