Women's Beach Living Paisley Adjustable Scoop Tankini Top
Size is very inconsistent
Very cute fabric and length is nice (overlaps bottoms). Sizes are way off. I usually wear a 14 in swimwear, sometimes a 12 (5'9", 185lbs, 40 1/2 chest, D cup). I bought this in a 10 reg -- according to size chart, there's no way this should fit me but it does. The cups are a little tight but think the D cup would be too large. The 14 reg was way too big all around. Luckily, I was in a store and could try on a bunch of sizes.
Sizing between different styles of Lands End swimwear varied greatly, I was a 16 in one. Size 10 to 16? That's just crazy. This sort of sizing inconsistency makes online ordering virtually impossible.

Great swimsuit top for larger chests
This was my first two piece swimsuit I ordered from LE. I was hesitant to spend the $$ on a swimsuit but I'm glad I did. I'm 5'5", a 38DD and carry my weight in my mid-section and was having trouble finding a suit. I ordered a size 14 , 38DD and it fit great with plenty of coverage. The fit isn't too tight across my abdomen and the pattern is timeless. Thanks LE for another great item!

Love the print and fits great
Comfortable, and good quality. Fabric takes a long time to dry ...

Colorful and flattering
This top is a flattering choice for me - I have narrow shoulders and a small bust. It is the second in this style that I have purchased and they last a long time. The length is a little shorter than expected, but I also have a long torso.

Well-made and looks good
This top is very well-made and supportive. I like that I can adjust the coverage so it is not so low-cut. It is very attractive. It has held up well in the washing machine (in a lingerie bag) for the half-dozen or so times I have washed it. That said, I think it is better for someone who likes to sit by the pool rather than swim, since it is very thick with the bra inside and takes forever to dry. I took it to Mexico along with another suit and wore it only once because I didn't want to be in a wet suit all day.

Nicely made -- big in the bust, otherwise true-to-size
I really like this top, but as with most plus-size clothing, the cups are way too large for me, and this is not even one of the D+ cup styles. I did keep this item, but it COULD BE BETTER.
There are many of us plus-size gals who wear B cups, thus these C-and-larger cups need either pads inserted or have a "collapsed chest" look. How about either smaller soft cups, or else pockets to hold "breast enhancers" (I tried several mastectomy styles, but very uncomfortable, with high underarms and higher-cut fronts -- they were all returned).
Since no LE retail locations are located within 100 miles, I do appreciate LE's generous return policy. I will often order each item in 2 sizes, then return ill-fitting items to the local Sears store.

Great fit and coverage
I got the mastectomy cut suit because I like more coverage in the bust area. This definitely gives the coverage. I also like that Land's End suits are lined so they don't feel flimsy or like they will fall apart. They are well made.

Love the pattern of this top.
I love this top. I love the fact that you can adjust this top, depending on how much you want to show off. Hot tub with husband or birthday party with 10 year old boys. totally different look. I am a size 10 and very comfortable in this suit. My daughter who is sixteen and a size 2 looks beautiful and classy in the adjustable tankini also.

Not my first choice, but it will do
I wanted the paisley pattern but waited too long to buy the top I really wanted. This was the only one left in my size, and as the title reads, it will do. I am not a fan of adjustable clothing, and that's exactly what this is. For those with problem areas, it may work just fine. You decide how high or low on the armpit and bust area you want the top to be. It slides on the frame so you can adjust it to fit your body. It's okay, and I'm making it work only because I like the print a lot. Bottom line - I can make it work, and this may be an ideal top for women who want to be able to choose the amount of coverage they get.

It is a cute supportive swimsuit top. I am a tall gal so I wish it was a bit longer. But would be fine for the 'average' person.
