Women's Floral Beach Halter One Piece Floral Swimsuit
I've never felt so good in a swimsuit...even after a lumpectomy!
I recently purchased this suit in the red print for a family vacation in Florida. I underwent a lumpectomy for Stage 2 breast cancer in February, and decided we should definitely squeeze in a trip before I start chemotherapy. I am unable to wear underwire bras or swimsuits, so purchasing a swimsuit posed a huge dilemma for me. I wear a 36DD bra, so an underwire is essential for proper support...at least that's what I thought! I ordered this suit in a size bigger than I would normally wear, as I didn't want anything to pinch, squeeze, or otherwise bother my sensitive incision, which is under my arm. When I received the suit, I was so happy with the color, which was the red/navy print. I originally wanted the black and white print, but it was sold out, but I'm so happy with the red. The print and ruching design have a magical way of hiding flaws if you're not perfectly slim. The halter design and the soft-cup support offer all the support I needed for days on the beach. The suit has a little tiny bit of a skirted effect both front and back, so I felt completely free to enjoy myself without tugging or being self-conscious, even with my teenagers on the beach. The fabric and design are such high quality, I would have actually paid full price for this suit and still thought it was a good value. As it was, I was able to get this lovely suit on clearance. I would order this suit again in a heartbeat if it was offered in more colors!

The suit fits very good and I love the way it looks and hides all imperfections.
I am very pleased with the suit but am dissapointed on the way it is made. All the suits I have gotten are usually Aquas and I love them. The problem is they have a lining that is a very thin netting and it does not hold up. My other suits are still in good shape and have not faded from the pool water but the netting is in shredds and the suit insides will not stay in place to get the suit on. I was hoping by ordering something different it would have a different lining but to my dismay it is the same.

A disappointing suit from Lands End
Over the years I have had dozens of swimsuits from Lands End and have had few disappointments - this one is however. Size was what I expected except I find the bra to be ill fitting - the lining does not tuck in so as you look down you always see it.
When i received the suit I quickly tried it on and it seemed fine - however, my first wearing I noticed the twist top of the bra area had a loose thread and was unfinished and since I was already at the beach I decided to just go with it!
I should probably have returned the suit but I got a very good price on it and the hassle of a trip to the post office was just not worth it - I will wear the suit but it will never be a favorite.

This swimsuit has a very flattering fit & feels secure enough to run around after my little ones. I love the vintage styling, and it has a lovely neckline which is very flattering on my large bust (38F). I especially like that it ties in the back, as it gives a very supportive fit. My husband approves as well. I only wish they had some solid colors left when I purchased, because the print is not my favorite, but all the pros make up for it. This was a great purchase & I am very pleased overall.

Great for Plus Sizes
I love this swimsuit! As a plus size, it's rare to find a suit that makes me want to look in the mirror. The suit is fully lined and holds all those curves in place. I love the retro cut and it really flatters. After buying the same suit in a solid color I made sure to buy another in the floral pattern for next summer.

I read all the reviews before buying this and it was just as expected. A great suit with flattering lines and a comfortable fit. Does run big and I wish the tie part in the back were snugger, but I do like this suit. Especially like the retro neckline and the appearance of a two piece that keeps the tummy truly hidden. LE needs more styles like this and less of the itsy-bitsy mix and match pieces we've been seeing lately. If you no longer have a bikini figure, but don't want to look like an old lady, this is a good pick.

cool or granny?!
Fits like a glove, but I can't decide if I love this or if I look like a Grandma!!

Too much material
This might have been ok of it had more structure everywhere. It pulled me flat on top (and I am not) and made we feel 10 pounds heavier otherwise. I am usually a 8 or 10 and the 8 was too big.

Very comfortable swimsuit
Took this suit to Maui this summer. Very comfortable to wear. I liked the "old school" look. Covered areas that needed covering! My only complaint on the suit is the bust seemed to stretch the more I wore it. All in all a fun swimsuit!
