Women's Isla Vista Lace V-neck Tankini Top
This top is beautiful, and I really REALLY wanted to like it. The bra cups in a size 8 are the perfect size; however, the top is much too tight in the ribs/stomach. I had a baby six years ago and don't have the hard stomach necessary to make this tight top look right. Also, the bra cups need padding. The fabric liners are too thin. Sigh. I'd only recommend this top to skinny women with big breasts.

Love this swimsuit top!
This swimsuit top feels so good on. It's soft and has no tight spots or underwires to make you uncomfortable. I reordered in a second color I like it so much. Runs true to size. I purchased size 4 and wear a 2 or 4 in clothing.

Not my favorite
I'll keep it and I'll wear it but probably not in the water. Not sure it was meant for a full figured woman.

I purchased this swim top in the day lily orange and I absolutely love it. The fabric has held up very well and the cut and style are perfect for my size 24 body--very flattering (accentuates my bust while detracting from my belly). I also purchased the higher rise swim skirt in tango orange, which was a perfect match with the color of the liner of the swim top. I like the look much better than a monochromatic bottom in the same day lily orange as the top. I could not be happier with my purchase. This is now my go-to suit for beach and pool.

LOVE Love love!!
I'm 5'2" and 150 - bought the white in size 14 and LOVE IT!
As someone previously said... LE please bring in more white suits... would love more choices in white!!
I've worn size 14 in LE before and find this a tad smaller but probably wouldn't have noticed it much without having read previous reviews.
The metal ring doesn't show more skin on me... but I'm not big chested. I like the little bit of bling and I love the halter style
The lace type fabric is really pretty and different. As you see from the photo it is lined - yes you can see the little bust pads but after adjusting them I didn't notice so much. Perhaps on white suits the pads should be completely sewn in? just a suggestion

Wish there was a little more support
Top is great ! purchased in white I am a size 10 36dd just wish that the
top had either underwire or soft cups not much support. I wish lands end would do a little more of these updated cute halter styles also a regular bottom would have been nice

Really low cut.
Look closely at the plus size picture. See how through the center ring of the halter top you can see her boob? Eek. That added to it already being low cut makes this hands down the most revealing top landsend sells or has ever sold..I felt like my "boobs were a poppin." I bought a 3/4 sleeve sweat shirt jacket hoodie at the mall to wear as a cover up. Trying to wear a conventional coverup looks weird since the swim skirt is bulky.

Very Short in plus size
This swim top in red is a gorgeous color and fabric. Finally something different in plus size. I was very disappointment in the fit! The top is very short. If you are petite, this is for you. Wish this did not have to go back and LE would stop cutting short on fabric.

TOP IS FORM-FITTING
I just received this suit and tried it on. The top fits a little too tight for my liking. (If you like things more form-fitting, then this top is for you!) It was very cute on and the color is vibrant. I ordered the daylily color which is a red-orange.

cute suit but tight on top
I bought this suit in a 12 (my normal size) and ended up exchanging the top for a 14 which fits a lot better. I recommend that chesty women buy a size up unless they like to show a lot of cleavage.
