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.

This fits great and doesn't make me look as large.
It fits nice without squishing me. I also had breast cancer and a lumpectomy - my one side is much smaller and it is not as obvious in this suit for some reason.
It is very comfortable and i wear it at the beach or pool.

This bathing suit is well made, flattering, and classy. It's a full coverage suit without looking dowdy. I've worn it with a sarong tied around my waist with an open blouse to cover my shoulders and was appropriately dressed for dinner at a nice beachside restaurant. My normal size 12 felt too tight-- probably because it's made tight to slim the entire figure--so I had to exchange it for size 14. Even though I'm a size 8 in the hips, it still fits well.

it's going back
I look like a shoebox in this suit.
To be fair, I'm probably built like a shoebox without the suit, but this just doesn't do anything good for me. I ordered my regular size in the Long Torso length, and it's small - stomach and hips area feel comfortable enough but the straps cut into my shoulders and my bust is squished, and my whole torso looks boxy. I didn't read reviews before ordering, and seeing now how people are having to order 2 and even 3 sizes up (a person who normally wears size 8 finds a good fit in a 14, and a petite person needs the tall length size???), maybe a different size would be better. If I found these in a store I could try on several different sizes, I might reconsider. But I'm not going to experiment that much through the mail with shipping charges, so this one is going back and I'll look for something different.

I swear this suit took 10-15lbs off. I love the fit. It seemed to suck everything in lol. I highly recommend it!

Please Lands End - Bring back this swimsuit in DDD Cup
As a true apple-shaped body type, this is one of the most flattering swimsuits that I have ever owned. I am a tall large-busted woman, so the Misses Size 16 fits me perfectly. I have it in two colors. I want another one, so I was completely disappointed today, when the 2014 swim catalog arrived with this suit shown again, but no DDD cups again in the Misses sizing. The lovely bust design of this suit keeps the girls covered and secured, plus it looks great! I really want one in the gorgeous royal blue. I guess I will have to keep wearing my two suits from three years ago for a fourth year. Maybe 2015? My only other suggestion is that DDD size women want solids not prints which only tend to make the bust look larger not smaller. Thanks Lands End for making great long-lasting suits!

too difficult to put on
I ordered my usual size and this suit looked great once I had it on, really flattering, but it was just too hard to get into. I mean it was REALLY HARD to put on! I'm sending it back for this reason.
To summarize: this is a lovely swimsuit if you have been strength training and don't have arthritis in your hands.

As a 5'8'' woman (5'8'', weight 138 lbs, ordered size 10), with a very long inseam and long rise, it is very difficult for me to find suits that fit. I recently moved to Miami and needed a new suit "out of season". This suit was an exact replacement for my previous suit (finally wore out due to sun, chlorine and salt). I wanted another color or slightly different style, but ordering so late "in the season" limited my choices. Land's End, please carry a larger variety of suits in tall throughout the year. Land's End is the ONLY place I can ever find a suit that fits! The suits wear well and I wear mine almost everyday. Don't every change your fit for tall women or your materials! As is typical for most suits, I recommend ordering one or two sizes up from your usual size.
