Women's Maillot One-Piece Swimsuit
Lightweight and fun
This is a nice, minimally structured beach suit. I typically buy from the Beach Living collection for "company" full-coverage suits that will withstand a variety of activities all day long. This lightweight suit is just what I wanted for a quick dip in a less-critical-than-family setting. (My mother: Do you even OWN a girdle?) More fish nibbled at me than usual--I may have looked like a bag of algae from their perspective. I'm 5'6", 132 lbs., and usually wear Land's End 6/M or 4/S in street clothes. The US 8 fits fine.

Very short suit
I odered size 0 - I'm about 5'2" and 90lbs. This suit was wide, but it wasn't even long enough in the body to cover my chest! Had to return. Beautiful fabric and I think the style would be nice if the body was much longer!

Flattering fit and nicely made.
This suit is a nice one piece option, with a nice color and pattern, and a flattering fit. It is not for someone with a large chest as it has less support and coverage in that area. I am 5' 10", and had no issues with the suit being too short, although I do have a short torso. The suit is well made and I like that it has adjustable straps, too.

The suit is pretty but not sized correctly.
I measured as directed. I ordered accordingly. I couldn't get the size 6 over my shoulders so I returned it and ordered the 10. It was STILL too short and the bust has no support at all.
I wear a size 4 so I couldn't believe that the 10 didn't even work for me.
Too bad because the fabric and pattern are very pretty.

I wasn't sure about this suit because another reviewer mentioned that there's not as much support up top as with other Land's End suits. Happily, while I agree with that, the crossed back straps provided enough support for my 36Cs (maybe C-). The print is really pretty and the cut is flattering. I don't care for one-pieces that come up high in the back and this one doesn't. And, it's well-made--fully lined and with removable pads. Just a note: it does say hand wash and line dry, so I'll have to take a little care with it.

Beautiful fabric and cut
The quality of this bathing suit is wonderful. The fabric is very pretty and looks like it will stand the test of time. My only issue is that it is a bit short in the torso. The straps are adjustable, thank goodness. I love the low back. As a new mom, it is nice to find a one piece that is flattering but still gives enough coverage.

Very cute swimsuit, but no support in bust area. Perfect for a cup size A-B but any larger and your "girls" will be falling out. Sorry to say I will be returning.

Need a shorter body
I loved this suit, it is so pretty, and fits nicely EXCEPT for the length. My body is not long enough to need a long size, but even with adjusting the straps, it was too short and I had to sadly return it. So I would definitely recommend this suit if you have a shortish body. Also it is less structured than the usual Lands End suits, so it's not for anyone who wants a lot of structure.
