Women's Isla Vista Floral Twist One Piece Swimsuit
i was leery of getting a suit with such big pattern -- not my usual taste and i'm a sz 8 -- but it looks awesome! the rucheing is very flattering. lots of compliments. i'm in my 40's (tho i look younger) and was worried it would make me feel/look old. nope!

I bought the Floral Twist one piece suit and it fits perfectly! I love the colors, the clip back and the tie that goes around my neck. I loved it so much I bought a second one exactly like it!! Thank you, Lands End, for keeping some one-piece suits available. (Not all of us are happy in a two-piece suit!)

As good as it looks.
I have tried on a lot of L.E. swim suits this year. They and jeans, must be the hardest items for women. Living in Canada, I can't try on in a store, so I end up returning a lot.
This one fit well, and the ruching is flattering. The bra cups are thinly padded, and stitched under the suit, so don't stick up. A lot poke up and show.
Fabric is super soft, as is the lining. Colours are brilliant. Even the stitching is superb.
Normally, I wouldn't choose a suit with halter, but the strap in the middle of the back takes the strain.
The only thing that made it a four star, was, the halter. I would have preferred straps.
I do Aquafit twice a week, and have a grey suit that doesn't fade. I think I might keep this for summer holidays.
I am no spring chicken, 65 plus, but would recommend.

I really wanted to love this suit; colors are beautiful, front gathers good for hiding tummy. However, like all 3 of the suits I've tried to order this year from LE, the back leg elastic is very loose. This provides no coverage under the crotch area. It isn't comfortable on land, so I can imagine what it would feel like wet. I've been buying LE suits for years and always like them. That's not the case this year. They just don't fit like the suits of previous years. I sent it, along with the others, back.

Not a Good Fit
As far as recommending this product, I'd have to say MAYBE. I ordered a Size 12. It was TOO big. I took it back to Sears. I ordered another one in size 10. The body fit just fine, but I had to tie the halter so tight (to hold up the "girls") it hurt my neck. (I'm a size 36C, so a woman, with a B fit would probably find this swim suit comfortable). I returned it to Sears. I had also ordered another style before this one and it too had a very bad fit. The bra insert was just one large padded bandage, without individual cups. I've always had very good luck with Land's End swim suits. The styles and fit were always good, but not this year.

I was so happy when I slipped this suit on a it fit perfectly. I ordered my usual bathing suit size and there are no problems. It is flattering and I have received many compliments. I would love another in a different colour! I honestly have nothing bad to say about it.

Love this suit!
I never find a one piece suit that actually fits me, but this one did. Plus, the colors are really pretty and happy in person. AND it's very flattering. I can't wait to wear it!

This swimsuit has everything. It is very comfortable with sewn in soft cups. You don't have to worry about putting soft cups back in place after the wash! It is so pretty and feminine. It fits true to size and like a dream, so soft. The gathers at the center of the suit are very flattering as well. A winner!

This bathing suit fits big so size down and the colors are great!
First, I had to return my size ten for a size 8. I am a Petite so whole suite is like usual long in the body for me. That said the halter top part is made with a large chested gal in mind and like I said I am Petite so had to tie up the halter higher than normal just to keep my privacy. Around the legs the elastic seems looser than usual and I am hoping to get through the summer before having any problems with wedgies. I think if you have skinny legs you'd run into problems from the get go which I don't. So the bottom was more fitted to my figure type than the top. The fabric is lovely and for that reason I am willing to keep the suite and received compliments while wearing it.
