Women's Plus Size Beach Living Island Floral Shirred Tankini Top
Needs to be a bit longer
Love this tankini top, however, in plus size it needs to be a bit longer. Also, I wish they would make the skirts longer in plus sizes. It would cover the tops of legs more and be more comfortable. I have found that all the skirts are really short.

I absolutely loved this top! Everything this fit great EXCEPT the wire is HUGE.
I love this top. Cute and everything but the cup/wire fit great. The underwire was so big that it actually came up underneath my arm pit. I ordered the "Plus" size cup vs the "D or DD". I thought I would give it a try but some designers think that all plus size women have large breasts. Not the case!!! I had to return and was very sad!

Too much" help " is no help at all
This is a very cute and well constructed top EXCEPT for what is almost like cardboard in the bust area. If the buyer is ordering a double d cup size and a top with an underwire bra, she needs only a good lining and perhaps the lightest of material to keep it modest when wet.
This looks ridiculous on because of the extreme amount of unnecessary lift that a double d doesn't need.
I have not worn it and will be returning it .
The separate bottoms- shown in picture above - which I got in Pink- are great.

Very flattering swim top!
Very flattering tankini top and paired well with the swim-mini. I needed to order a larger size than I would normally wear as Land's End swim suits seem to run a bit on the small side.

Pretty, but low cut
Love the print, but the chest coverage is poor. Way too revealing.

The sizes are true to size if you go by the size chart.
New to Land's End swim wear, however I have purchased 4 swim suits to date. I love the comparable prices and great fabric they are made with. Will continue to purchase.

not enough support
I bought this bathing suit because it had an underwire and I hoped it would provide support, but it didn't and the straps are narrow which doesn't help. Also, I bought the matching bottom and the two together just didn't work--was all bunched up. The fabric was nice and the print attractive, however.

Comfortable and falttering
Love this tankini top. It's nicer than it looks in the photo--it's comfortable and flattering. It dries quickly, too. I bought the matching swim tee cover up and they looks great!

I love the print of this tankini top! It's really cute in person, and the colors are great - I bought new bottoms to go with it, but the pink is the watermelon color from past seasons, so I can wear my older bottoms with it, too. Double win.
A few years ago, Lands End offered a tankini top that had a similar top construction to this - it's still my favorite suit, and this may replace it now. It's very flattering for anyone with a large bust. The girls stay in place but are very flattering! The straps are comfortable as well.
The white is not see through when it's wet, too - that's a big deal!
My only "wish list" item though is that the suit was a tiny bit longer. They used to have tankinis with drawstring sides that you could make shorter or longer, and those were nice. Just a thought, Lands End!
I paired this bottom with aqua blue bottoms, and while there is no exactly matching blue in the print of this top, it still looks really great. You could wear this tip with any color bottom, just about!

Great top for active swimmers- no wardrobe malfunction (and looks good)
I've been to the beach a lot since I got the top and it's been great. I don't just lounge around on the beach I go body boarding, play volleyball, fly kites, swim in rough water, ect... All that to say my biggest concern when I buy a bathing suit top is if I'll have a wardrobe malfunction because some bathing suits are just a piece of cloth on a string and aren't meant to handle anything more than sun bathing. Not so with this top- I felt really secure and found the top to be very comfortable. The straps and under wire don't dig into me like my last top so I didn't have to keep adjusting the top all day long I could just relax. The material used seems very sturdy- I don't think I'll have any problems with it. I would say if you take care to find the right size for yourself (I used land end's sizing chart) then you'll be very happy with your purchase.
I bought the regular size 4. I am 5'1''. 120pounds. Cup size 34C.
