Women's Plus Size Beach Living Scoopneck Swimdress
depends on your shape
I always find swim dresses to be the most flattering option at my size but this one was a terrible fit. Had to send it back. If you have a very large chest and hips that are small in comparison this might work for you. The picture looks like the skirt portion flares out but it was more straight than it appears. I have found more and more that LE"s plus size clothing is mostly shapeless. LE seems to forget that plus size women still have waistlines.

Bathing suit shopping--yuck!
So it's hard enough to shop for a suit in a brick and mortar store but unfortunately on line was a disaster.
The suit was lovely BUT it just did nothing for me. I can't blame it on the suit. It's more a figure flaw. Had to send it back.

This is a wonderful bathing suit for the plus size figure & available for long torso.
The turquoise color is pretty and this bathing suit fits beautifully. I look as good as possible for someone my age and size when I wear this to the pool. My friend loves it too, and she has complimented it several times when we have met to exercise in the pool. I got it on sale, at the end of the summer, so it was a good bargain as well.

Problem with Straps
Hi, The has a great neckline but the straps aren't strong enough. The hook on my suit broke after just one wear and I had to fix it myself. Because of that, I couldn't recommend this suit.

nice suit but...
I loved this suit, the extra coverage was what I have been looking for in a suit. The first time I wore it I got a number of compliments on how flattering it was. I liked it so much I bought a second one as a backup. I swim in a highly chlorinated warm water pool. After wearing this suit for about a month it has completely failed. The color has faded drastically and unevenly, and the fabric has stretched and puckered along the seams due to deterioration from the chlorine. When I get out of the pool the fabric stretches out so much that it comes down below my knees. I would not recommend this suit if you swim in a pool which is highly chlorinated. If you want to wear this to sit or walk at the beach or sit around the pool, then you will love it. I will save my second one for the beach and am replacing this suit with a more chlorine resistant one.

Not quite a homerun for me
This swimdress was really close to being a homerun for me. The only problem for me was the straps. I'm 5'9", 100 lbs overweight and at least a DD cup. "Normal" people probably love the fact that this suit has adjustable straps. But for me, they didn't feel supportive enough. I had my daughter adjust them so they'd be somewhat tighter, but everything still felt loose and floppy (for lack of a better word). I'm still giving it high ratings because it may be perfect for someone who isn't quite as buxom.

Was a great suit until I got it wet!
I really liked the way the turquoise suit looked when I tried it on and I was dry. When I went swimming, it was so heavy the front kind of rolled down and you could see the bust lining. Also, it was significantly longer wet. It seemed like there was an unnecessary extra lining that made the suit difficult to take off, especially when it was wet. The final straw was after I took it off I noticed that the fabric had puckered and was no longer smooth. I will sadly be returning it.

Love this suit
Thus suit fits very well. True to size.

This suit is nicer than I expected. The color is very pretty, a sort of turquoise, and the cut is really nice. The only reasons I didn't give five stars are that the suit takes a very, very long time to dry, and that the bust is smaller than I expected. The control panel works very well, but it is a little bit hard to get it on when wet! That said, I got lots of compliments, and I felt very confident in it.

Comfortable on the beach
I'm more comfortable in this suit on the beach than I have been in years. I'm overweight, with a large bra size. I got a plus size with the DDD cup. All of me fits in. I would like it even better if it had been built over a real underwire bra, that extends all the way around under the suit and allows the wearer to hook it to get more support.
