Women's Long Beach Living Twist Front Swimdress
Length too short for my frame
I am 5'7" and 130lbs, I ordered this suit in a regular size 6 and the built in bra hits two inches below where is should with the straps full extended, I wish other reviews had at least put their height in the review to make the reviews more helpful! I will be returning the suit which fits great other than being way too short for my frame.

too small in the bust
I'm a 34 C/D and the bust was too small - larger size sutre would have been too large elsewhere.
it was a heavy material

bathing suit is perfect fit

Not for me.
I am 63 years old and 10 pounds too heavy. I was hoping this suit would hide my flaws and make me feel comfortable poolside. The suit is well made, however, it does look too much like a slip. Also, it was not flattering on me. I have returned the suit and have ordered LE's 2 piece cami and skirt. I have also started my diet to loose the weight, which will definitely help the appearance of any swimsuit.

Modesty with style
I was so pleased with this purchase (which I got on sale!) I had been wanting a swimsuit that i wouldn't feel self conscious about wearing in public and this certainly fit the bill. This suit is very well made and it offers great coverage without looking dowdy. This suit stays put, doesn't creep up, and the top does NOT flatten out my small chest. The suit has a lot of spandex, which I like, because although I'm not overweight, I AM over 50 and I like the "pulled together, wearing a girdle, everything's tight" feeling. Finding a suit THIS cute, in a long torso AND with a skirt is near impossible at the store. I won't feel shy taking my grandchildren to swim. Goodbye t-shirt and shorts!

This suit fills a niche.
I'm a huge LE swimsuit fan, and this is my first foray into one that has a skirt. I was VERY surprised at how heavy this suit is - it seems to weigh about 8X what my little tugless tank weighs - but it does wire me up (underwire cups) and hold my bulges in, so can't complain! ;) Usual great LE fit.

serious swim dress
This is the one I've been looking for! It's weighty and made for the full figured woman who wants to hide in a good looking suit. The bra cups are substantial and the look is flaterring. I get compliments and inquiries as to where I purchased it.

must return: fabulous quality, not so great fit
First, let me sayt 'm a 5'4" plus size (18W) pear-shaped middle aged woman looking for a flattering, modest swimsuit. This one didn't work for me but might just work for you. When i took it out of the box I immediately thought "boy, it's heavy!" and it is. In size 18DD, this suit actually weights 1.4 pounds. It's very well-constructed with a serious underwire bra & full swimsuit body (not just a flimsy "liner") underneath the skirt part. The adjustable straps are much wider than shown (nearly an inch wide) which give great support to chesty gals. My main issue is the fit. It's too loose through the waist (tho' the hips fit very well with great coverage) and wayyyy too long to flatter even this old body. I'd suggest going down a size AND you still might need to remove a good 3-4 inches off the skirt bottom...for a talented seamstress, this may be the swimsuit of your dreams!

This suit fits well and is very flattering. I'm 5'2" and bought the petite; it fits much better than the regular fit I bought in another style. It has great support and minimizes the flaws I want to hide.
