Women's Plus Size Beach Living Deco Underwire Tankini Top
First off, I am 5'6" and overweight. I was looking for something that wouldn't scream "PLUS-SIZED!!!" for my Florida vacation - and I've found it! I was worried when prior reviews said the tankini was a little short... we all know this isn't cute with a little extra belly. However, with Land's End Ultra High Rise bikini bottoms, I can happily say that the bottom hem rests right at my hip bones. There is also amazing support for my ample bosom. I will say that I ordered the Azalea pink top and expected the background color to be gray, but it's more of a hunter green. Not an awful surprise, but it would be nice if all colors in something were added in the description. All in all, if you're looking for a plus-sized bathing suit in something other than black, this is an excellent choice :)

Really nice but didn't work for me
I ordered 4 tops, this one needed to be longer. Always was disproportionate; and didn't get more so when I gained weight. Both my daughters have had suits work for them, am keeping one of the 4.

Lacking in the support area
I was excited about having a bathing suit that will finally support my chest. That being said even though it has an under wire I was extremely disappointed with how much excess fabric is in the chest area that there was no support at all. I do not know where this myth of curvier (plus size) women have larger breast, because we are not all created the same. I find that with all of Lands Ends bathing suits (even the soft cups) that the larger the size the bigger the cup and my chest is just swimming in the fabric. It is a cute design but its not as supportive as I was hoping.

Cute, but too short
This swim top was way too short for me. The style and fit was good except for the overall length. If this top were offered in long length it would have been perfect.

The closest thing I have found to the LE suits from 6 years ago
I ordered a 20 reg, D, DD, and DDD. The DDD fits well and I am normally a 40F bra. It is supporting and adjusts at the back with a bra tab and at the straps. I do wish I could get the band slightly tighter, but it is fine. My only complaint is I wish it came without padding. My girls do not need extra help an it makes the cups fit a little wierd.

Perfect fit, shape-enhancing

Very comfortable. Gave great support. It is a very flattering tankini top. The only thing that I did not like was that I had a hard time doing the hook and eye closure alone and had to get my hubby to help.

I should have listened to the other review but I took a chance! I'm 5'3 and have a 38 DD.. I ordered the 16W. My chest and tummy isn't my problem area.. I would even say my chest is my best asset ;) so I loved the idea of the dark blue band under the chest, accenting my smallest part. The DD cups did fit me.. I wasn't spilling over.. but once I adjusted the straps to where I liked (locked and loaded my mom calls it) the top was practically up to my belly button!! I ordered the plus size for length. What the??? Is this some sort of manufacturing error Land's end?? It looks so out of proportion even when it's not on.. it's wide and short!!
On a positive side, I also ordered the Beach Living Swimdress in Aqua and it looks awesome!!! I've never been so happy in a "swimsuit"! I'm 33 so I was worried about not looking young.. but it accentuates all the right areas and covers up my but and thighs.. a dream suit! Search it! I'm returning this and getting another swimdress in black. Thank you Land's End for quieting my anxiety attacks over bathing suit shopping and the summer!!!

Small fit, unflattering
Recieved this suit today & was so disappointed! I loved that I could order it according to the size bra I wore, however, it does not fit true to size.. I was "popping" out of the top & sides. It is also short in the torso, which is unflattering to us women of a larger size.
