Flattering swimsuit top
I paired this with the Women Petite Beach Living Tapestry Flounce Mini SwimMini in the matching pattern and with an all-black Women's Beach Living High Rise Swimsuit Bottom with Tummy Control that I already had. I thought the all-over pattern look was most flattering, but both looked nice. This top did a nice job of camouflaging a little extra tummy that I have. This suit felt very secure on -- meaning I never felt I had to check to make sure it was still in the right place, covering what it needed to cover. The size 12 D-cup fit me perfectly even though the measurement/fit chart suggested a 14 for me. I usually where size 14 blouse and fall between a medium and a large in Lands' End tops.

The White Lining Shows
I have purchased LE swimwear for years and have been very happy. They now put white lining on the inside of the tops. If it pulls away from your chest at all, the white lining shows and looks like it doesn't fit properly. Why not use a color coordinated fabric so this does not happen?

Great swim top, fits well, very attractive
Great swim top, I combined it with the "Women's Beach Living High Rise Swimsuit Bottom with Tummy Control". Fits true to size. Pattern conceals post-baby tummy well.

bathing suits that fit and cover
i have problems with bathing suits fitting my chest (has to be cup size not dress size or S, M, L etc) and Lands Ends bathing suit ALWAYS fit! AND cover! and hold up! I actually feel comfortable in public again!

Love the underwire, adjustable straps and sized cups. Looks great. I ordered a size too small and had to exchange for larger size. Customer service honored sale price as well as free shipping. Love LE customer service. I spent the last couple of years in bland colors and this is a real beautiful difference.

A DD-bra top NOT made for a DD-size person
Pretty fabric, but the design does not work for this petite, full-breasted body. The neckline is too low and the straps are way too narrow and flimsy. Result: sag city and way too much exposure. I am returning this top.

super cute support /2
this is the 2nd one of this style I purchased. I love beach living bathing suit line. true to fit. great coverage for a early fifties curvy woman. and they last. I had to get a new top this year. my old one which is 10 yrs old isn't footing the bill this year. the elastic is letting go.(boo hoo for me) I HONESTLY LOVE MY LANDS ENDS BATHING SUITS.. my only request is for a slightly wider strap that you can cross in the back for a tad more support

Sizing Inconsistent With Foundation Sizes
Lands End is the only company that makes bathing suits to fit women with large bust issues. As I normally wear a DDD cup in regular foundations, I selected the size 10 DDD in this tankini top, hoping for the most possible coverage. Was surprised to find that the suit was much too large for me; one call to Lands End, and a replacement in a 10 DD was exactly right. My mistake to assume that tankini top sizes were consistent with sizing for foundations, but am glad I was finally able to get the right fit. This pattern was no longer available, so I chose another pattern that I liked even better.

Like this top but a bit revealing in the cleavage area
As I said, this is a nice top. However, if you are a gifted in the chest area, you may find it a bit too revealing - even if you adjust the straps accordingly. It's not so revealing that you wouldn't wear it, but takes a little getting used to if you don't like to show cleavage. I'm pretty modest and busty. My son (16) thought it was a little 'much'. My daughter, however, (25) was more temperate as a woman of the world who has travelled. She thought it was fine. I've worn it a few times at the beach and it's comfortable, doesn't irritate my neck like a halter would and is cute with black bottoms of any kind. So, all in all, it's nice. There is one other problem, however; the bottom rolls up about 1/4 of an inch and reveals a white hemline which looks a bit raggedy against black bottoms. I have to keep rolling it down.
