Women's Grecian One Piece Slender Suit
The best bathing suit ever. . .
I find all of Lands End bathing suits to run smaller in size. I generally wear size 8 but purchase 12 in bathing suits for a comfortable fit. That said, this suit does exactly what it claims - "transform your figure into the one you've always wanted ." It provides great support up top without underwires, and truly helps to hold in and flatten the stomach area. great suit.

Loved this suit! Comfortable and easy to wear.
I have worn this suit swimming on several occasions, and received compliments on the fit and the colour. Loved the comfortable fit, and the way it flattered my figure.

Please bring back the DD+ sizes
I have a previous version of this suit in a 14DD. Love it, but I am in need of a smaller size (woo hoo). I wish that this suit came in the DD option again. I have tried and returned a couple of other Lands End suits now, because nothing else compares to the comfort of my Grecian One piece from about 4 years ago (nursing mother taking the tike to swim lessons). Mommy needs a new suit that fits (and covers and is comfortable). Please bring this suit back in the larger bust options!

Cute swimsuit but not for boy shapes or small chests
This suit was cute and did help tighten everything up but not for me. My figure is pretty straight (no tiny waist or big chest here, just kind of straight up and down with a decent butt and belly of a mother of two). Speaking of that belly, it doesn't taper down into my pelvis, it's more like the kind that hangs over your jeans so I've learned that a 1-piece is never going to sit right in the tummy. This is better suited for someone whose weight is evenly distributed or tummy is flat. My meager 36B chest was also flattened out of existence. I'm a size 6 in most clothing and this suit in a 10 was a good fit but just didn't look good on me.

Not A Keeper
After reading the reviews, I decided to order this suit in two different sizes, also ordered them in tall. I'm 5'2", 126 lbs. The size 8 was a "squasher" in the bust and way too tight causing "back fat" by the arms to spill over the top of the suit. The size 10 was more comfortable however the bra portion in the suit was too big since I'm small busted. Wish swim suits had a more substantial cup in the bra. I think this suit would be more flattering on a woman larger than a B cup. Don't know why 5'2" needs a tall, but if I kept the suit I would have needed the extra length!

I was persuaded by some other reviews to get this suit ... I am 5'5" 36DD and somewhere between a 10 (lower half of my body) and 12 (upper half) ...
The suit is a little long in the body ... but then I am not tall ... my proportions though are fitting the 5'5" ...
It's not perfect - the leg cut on the bigger side ... the tummy kind of tight ... the bra is ok, not perfect ... I ordered a size 12 to fit the 36DD based on some other reviews ...

Pretty and practical suit
It's more interesting than a plain tank-- (which does nothing for my body) - so I don't feel frumpy, and let's face it....a little extra firming is always a plus-- I'd recommend it. I have larger breasts and so I usually get suits that have cup sizes--- but I figured I'd try it. While it doesn't enhance my girls-- it's doesn't squish them either and will be good for activities where I need the straps to stay put.

Runs very short
I bought this darling suit in my right size (14) and after I got it on (which was a little struggle as it's a shaper) I could not put the straps on as they pulled down so very tightly. I am not tall. But I like the suit so I ordered it in "tall" OMG! Still - it is so short and cut into my shoulders. If I went up a size it might fit OK but it would still be short. It's disappointing as this suit is very stylish. I am 5'6" and have not ordered items under the "tall" category for anything. Haven't had to.
Now I am unsure as to ordering another suit in a different style if they are all like designed like this. I can't be the only person with this problem.

I love this suit and would buy another one if it came in a D cup. Please bring this suit back in a D!

Good Enough for D
I'm with Stella7, the previous reviewer-this suit gives a lot of support for a soft cup. And it runs small. I"m 5'7", 135 pounds and normally take a dress size 8, and I needed the size 12. I should also add that I'm a 36D-DD bra size, and everything fit in there just fine. Most of my suits are underwires, but I wanted something durable and quick-dryable for regular lap swimming. The black looks classy. If it had more shirring details in the back it would have been five boats.
