Women's Plus Size Avalon Halter One Piece Swimsuit
I am devastated to see that this swimsuit seems to be on the out. I bought one in red last year and have worn it constantly. I am an average size 10 and it fit perfectly. I have had a lumpectomy and you would never know with this suit. It gives good support and accentuates curves. I wanted to buy more (a black and a white one).

Sizing is off
Lovely suit and gorgeous color but Land's End, what is happening to your sizing! I always order a 22 W in your swimsuits. This suit is fine in the hips, but too long in the torso, and when it came to pulling it up, there was no way it was going around my back. I'm not particularly chesty, but this isn't a fit for a plus size woman. Shame but it's going back.

Comparison to same suit in control version
I bought this suit in red in regular and control version. There is not a huge difference, but I slightly prefer the control version. It was a little hard to get into but otherwise comfortable, not too binding, with a little snugger fabric that sucked my stomach in a little compared to the regular version. The red is an orange red, not usually my favorite, but I liked it in this suit. My major complaint is that it runs a little long, as I am finding all Lands End suits this year.

Beautiful teal swimsuit
Fit perfectly in the hips, but too big in chest area. Had to return it.

Very flattering fit
Fits well, true to size, and very flattering.

Pretty in the picture, but fit doesn't work for me
This suit is very pretty, but the fit is odd.
It would probably fit a tall, slim woman, but I am short and busty.
It doesn't work for me. I used to buy Lands End D-Cup one piece suits, but they don't have many of them anymore. I usually wear a 16D. Since they don't make that size in a one piece, (except a few slender suits, a swimdress and one aqua fitness suit) I tried this suit in an 18 and also in a 16W. Both are going back.
I picked "fits big" on the slider, but that doesn't really apply.
The body of the 18 is too long in length. The 16W is shorter in length, but the top was proportioned strangely, so that the cups didn't fit well.
After trying on many Land's End suits at the local Sears store, I have come the conclusion that Land's End must be targeting a younger, slimmer market.
My older Land's End 14D and 16D suits from 2-3 years ago still fit, but they are wearing thin.
