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.

I really wanted to like this bathing suit. It looks amazing on the model and seems like it would have everything I'm looking for, but it just didn't fit right. It seems to run small in the length of the torso.

Love This Suit
Best suit ever. I'm 5 foot 9 inches, 175lbs, and always buy tall sizes to get the correct fit. Usually wear size 10 or 12, but got this suit in 14 because i know from experience that the slender fit is very tight. Suit fits perfectly in size 14 tall/long!!! I'm pear shaped, and the style helps balance my figure. Cups in the bra help to shape and define my smaller bust. Suit smooths out figure bulges around middle. Even with full butt and heavier thighs the leg openings are comfortable and look great. Other brands of slender suits tend to squash bulges out of the suit edges - not this suit. Only improvement would be to continue the shirring around the back of the suit.

I love this suit. But bring back the mastectomy bra!
This suit is great for me. I am wearing one I ordered a few years ago. However, now it is not offered with mastectomy bra. Please offer this again!

Hard to get on, but the struggle is worth it.
Okay, so I'm a size 7/8 and ordered the size 8 online. I just received my suit and tried it on and boy oh boy was it difficult to get on! My main problem was fitting my thighs and butt into it. But once I got into it, my tummy (I have a little post-pregnancy belly) and things were completely gone!!!! I'm thinking once it gets wet when I go swimming it may get more loose. Once I get done exercising and hit my goal it will go on easier and I definitely think it was worth the money. If you want a swimsuit that gets rid of your tummy pooch and love handles then this is the one for you! For reference, I'm 138 and 5'2.

beautiful suit, no D cup available
This is a beautiful suit and size 12 fit perfectly except for having not enough coverage in the bust for me to feel comfortable. I hoped that would be remedied by ordering the suit in a D-cup -- but that option is barely available & not in the Grecian. I am so disappointed as I really liked everything else about this suit. I sent it back & got one of the other Slender Suits w/the D cup (it has the ruched top & scoop neck) -- it fits but is not as flattering as the Grecian or the now defunct Carmela. Lands End -- you're letting me down.

Beautiful color and style, but uncomfortable
I really thought this would be the perfect suit. I'm 5'10, 155 lbs and usually wear an 8 or 10 in pants and a 10 in bathing suits. My other Lands End suits are a 10 tall and fit very well. This one seemed like it wasn't quite long enough. I even checked the size because I thought maybe I had ordered the regular torso length. The straps were also really digging into my shoulders and I knew I wouldn't be able to wear it comfortably. It's too bad, because I love the color and it was very flattering on my hips and tummy. I would try another size, but I'm not sure it's going to fix the length or the shoulder straps.

This is a very flattering swimsuit! At first I was nervous about the soft cups because I do prefer underwire, however, the Slendertex really flatters my figure & keep everything where it is "supposed to be." The color teal is really beautiful and I am extremely happy with my purchase. (For those not familiar with this fabric, it DOES run snug because it is supposed to. If you do not like that feeling, I'd recommend going a size up.) I HIGHLY recommend this swimsuit!

I returned this suit
I ordered this suit in a 14 long due to a longer torso. I am 5'7" and 162 lbs. I was surprised that it seemed a little short in the torso and the straps were cutting into my shoulders. It would have been uncomfortable for an afternoon's wear. I double checked to see that I had received the right size and it did say on the tag that it was a 14L, so that wasn't the issue. Otherwise, it seemed well made and of good material.
