Women's Beach Living Tapestry Bandeau Tunic Top
After reading several reviews saying one should buy a size smaller, I sized down and could barely get the top on. It certainly has potential, but I wouldn't worry about buying a smaller size. I will be returning this top.

Lots of compliments
This is my first suit worn strapless and I was worried about the fit and if it would feel like I needed to constantly be tugging back in place. But, no, the fit is very secure. There are straps available if I wanted, but I like the look better without. I'm getting lots of compliments on the print. I'm tall (5'10") so I wear it without any ruching, and the length is great for feeling like I have full coverage, but also feeling like I'm not wearing a "mom" suit. I'd definitely buy another with a different print.

Way too much fabric; white polka dots in pattern are overwhelming
I'd been eying this suit for months and finally bought it. I was immediately taken aback by the small, bright white polka dots in the pattern. You can see them when you zoom in on the picture, but they're overwhelming in real life and make the pattern less mature. I liked the shirring from the side drawstrings, but the picture is misleading about the amount of fabric used. When I found myself wondering if I could use my sewing machine to take in a few inches from the sides, I realized I needed to send it back. It would work wonderfully as a maternity suit!!

too big and it was NOT flattering
Sorry to say, this is going back. Its a nice suit but the fit was too big and it was NOT flattering to me.

Love this suit great for those who have large cup size
This suit fits well and does an excellent job of concealing my belly. My only complaint is that it did rip in the middle of the two cups after only wearing a couple of times.

Cups tore when taking it off first time
So disappointing, the seam allowance on the cup insert is so slim that one tore off right away. Too bad, it looked really nice.

WAY TOO MUCH MATERIAL
I wanted to love this because the chocolate brown/blue pattern is beautiful, and I liked that it had extra coverage with flexible length.
However, that length and extra coverage comes at a cost!
There was just SO much material in the bodice. It would not be comfortable to swim with all that material around your torso. It looked silly.
Too bad, because it looks beautiful on the model.
I am 5"6 and 135 lbs, btw. I ordered the size 6. If I had gone down to the 4, I think the bust would have been too tight.

I like the coverage.
The fit is big in the bust area.

Love the style!
The idea of the styling (ruched) is great! I did not care for how the fabric was loose around my torso. I find LE swim tops to run small. Needs some re-styling.

Please, bring this back in plus sizes!
It looks like Land's End is phasing out this swim top, which is too bad. I have loved it for the last few years and would buy another one if it were available in plus sizes. What's to love? The tunic length that drapes nicely and can be adjusted. The bandeau top and soft bra cups. And the straps that can be worn in several different ways. Please, bring this one back!
