Women's Halter One Piece Slender Suit
Lining won't stay hidden
I returned this suit because the lining at the top would NOT stay hidden when the straps were tied.

Lovely color and fits well
Size 14 fit me perfectly. The suit is very supportive while the color, neckline, and gathering across the torso add some style. I wore it for several full days at the ocean and everything stayed in place nicely. Definitely a good buy, especially at this sale price!
I do not have a problem with the lining showing, as others have mentioned. Also, I had to return one because there was a defect but Lands End was very helpful in getting a new one to me by the time I left for vacation!

Love the color!
Love the bathing suit, but...the lining (or the cups are too big?) sticks out. I'm going to try and take a few stitches to hold it in place, but for the price I was kind of disappointed it didn't fit better.

Halter One Piece
I returned this suit because it didn't fit me. I am large but my breast are small. So a suit with a shaped breast doesn't work for me. It also seemed too small for me and my fat was pressed up above the top of the suit in the back. I don't blame the suit, it just didn't work for me.

This was the perfect style and colour (the royal blue) for a film project that a friend was doing. I almost didn't get it, though, due to some of the other reviews. Am I ever glad I listened to my gut! The suit fit beautifully and the colour is gorgeous. I'm usually a 10, bust 36D, hourglass shape, but I got a 12 because it's a 'slenderizing' suit and the other reviews made me think a 10 might be too small in the bust. As it turned out, a 10 likely would have been fine, but I didn't have the time to exchange and the 12 was still comfortable. As far as the lining popping over the top, I found this to be a VERY minor issue - it certainly didn't happen any more that other suits I've had over the years, and when it did show, it was only the tiniest bit - if I hadn't been keeping an eye on it just for the camera, I probably wouldn't even have noticed it. I found the wide halter straps very comfortable, and the overall style has a touch of glamour to it. So glad I bought this suit!

I ordered this in black and I am so happy with it. Perfect fit! I am 5'4, 165, and a 38DD bra. (Ordered a 14) The other reviews talked about the top rolling down and exposing the lining but they seemed to have fixed that problem, at least in the black. The lining of the black suit is black so if it does roll (which mine didn't) you won't be able to tell. The straps are supportive and the body of the suit is very flattering and hides all the mommy imperfections! Thankful for a suit I can play with my kids in and not look like a frumpy mom! Thank you Lands End!

Top lining shows
Like most of the others have stated.....love the suit, the fit, the color, but the top lining keeps popping up. Perhaps it would not be noticeable if it were the same color, but not so. I am retuning it.

Weird rollover of material at top
The only negative feedback is that for some reason, even though it fits well, the top material wants to fold down exposing the padded backing at the breasts. It is a bit annoying.

I really LOVE this suit! It is very flattering for those of us who have had a kid and need that extra support in the stomach area but don't want to look too mommish, almost a retro feel to it. I wear a 4 and I am petite, but I don't usually order petite sizes. I wish this came in a 4 regular, as the petite is a bit too short in the torso, but I am still happy with it. I have not had any issues that others stated, but I have not gotten the top wet yet. I also like that you can tie the halter in the back and it makes a perfect strapless suit....very supportive. I am a B cup.

Bust lining shows even on small bust
I really wanted this suit to work. I loved the color online, the concept and the design. I ordered the 10 Petite (I wear a size 8 Petite in clothing) and the suit fit perfectly and was indeed flattering and a vibrant shade of blue. However, the inner lining along the bust line showed itself, even when I tied the halter straps snugly. I am not a large chested person, and I was hoping this issue would not occur as I had read about from other reviewers. I am about a B cup and the lining showed, so at this point I think this suit has a defective design. If they could fix the lining issue, this suit would have worked very well.
