Women's Beach Living Paisley V-neck Tankini Top
Love the thicker material Land's End uses in their women's suits. Worth the cost!!!

Great fit and flattering
I hadn't bought any swimsuits in 3 years, as I've gotten a little heavier and a little softer, and I've hated putting them on. I bought this top in a 12 (I'm a 36DD) and a swim skirt with a tummy tucking panel in a 16 (I have full hips). I am very pleased with the combination. I modeled it for my 17 year old, while making a negative comment about my appearance in it (shame on me!), and she told me to "shut up" because it looks really nice! The pieces are both very comfortable, too.

Great coverage, good for 'bustier ladies'!
I live at the beach, so have nine swim minis from LE in solid colors--I started accumulating them many years ago, and each one is in excellent condition (because I rinse them out with a drop of shower gel after wearing). I have a bunch of tops, halter and regular strap type, and this is my favorite style from LE. It is flattering yet coverage is good--I am older and don't care to dress like a teenager! Nice quality, and I would have bought more,, but didn't care for the patterns this year. Eagerly awaiting the new styles!

Very nice print, could use more support. I tried 2 different sizes and went with the larger even though it is a little saggy.

My excitement turned into disgust.
I was originally excited to receive this product after trying on so many different swim suits. It was the perfect fit and style for my body type. I enjoyed the time I had with it, and when I hand washed my suit top, per the washing instructions, imagine my horror when the white suit turned pink. Some of the color from the print of the suit bled and now instead of a perfect white patterned paisley top, I have a pinkish tie-dyed looking top. I would not expect this from a Lands' End product. I was willing to pay a little bit more for a product that should have been a quality swim top, and in actuality I feel like I got burned.
I did speak to a customer service representative, she was apologetic and guaranteed that my product could be returned and the price refunded. The product was sold out in pink and black in my size, so it could not be replaced in hopes the top I got was defective (She had heard no other quality control reports of this happening). I elected not to return my top because I could not get a replacement.

Colors are great and the material feels nice and is substantial, not thin and flimsy (which helps further camouflage tummy bulges). I'm a 36 A and normally wear a small top (4-6), sometimes medium, depending on the cut. I found the size 8 worked best in this top; the size 6 would have also worked but the size 8 was a bit less tight overall. The halter style allows you to adjust the fit. It looks beautiful with black swim shorts.

This tankini top was exactly what I was looking for. I was trying to avoid the dreaded "back fat." that I have had with other styles. A friend told me I should try a halter that ties in the back instead of hooking. That way I could adjust the tightness myself. It completely worked! The fit is great and no back problems! However I must say, it is a deep plunging neckline. I sewed it closed a bit and now it will be great for my Hawaiian vacation.

Not of high quality
True to size but the first time I put it on, the bottom of the tankini was already all stretched out. The material at the bottom actually bubbled. I returned it thinking it was an issue with this one tankini but unfortunately I just put the new one on and the same. Called Land's End to confirm and these items are made in China, perhaps that is the issue. Very disappointed with the poor workmanship of the tankini tops. Would think more of them since they were being sold by Land's End but this is not the case. The bottoms however are made very well.

flattering runs true to size
I normally have to buy swim suits a size or two bigger. I wear a size 6 in clothes and fit perfectly into the size 6 of this suit (I have a medium bust). It is very flattering with high quality material. another great Land's End product.

flattering and fashionable, but the cups pucker a bit?? Extra fabric?? I did size down and felt this helped a little. Overall great for the pool and hanging with my kids.
