Women's Plus Size Slender Tulip Swimdress
pretty color but unflattering
loved the color. Tried 2 different sizes and the tops on both did not lay right

Order as per size chart not necessarily the size you would wear w/ other products or brands
This is a fantastic suit. I used to swim competitively so a swimdress is not my favorite style; however that was many yrs ago & I now have many body flaws to conceal, and this swimdress was perfect. It hid what I needed it to, yet still looked pretty nice. Even at my size it manages to fake a bit of shape. And I didn't feel like I was wearing a "granny suit" with it. It is equally comfortable when doing laps or relaxing in the hot tub.
My only 'complaint' is one of my own doing - I usually prefer a swimsuit to fit *very* tight (after one highly embarrassing incident yrs ago when a suit stretched too much when wet & shifted badly) - so even though all the comments said order as per size chart, I still ordered one size smaller (instead of 2)... and it is just a tad too snug. I debated returning it for the correct size, however as I'm trying to lose weight, I decided to keep it as it's not snug enough to be problematic, & adds incentive to the weight loss goal.
All in all, I am VERY happy with this suit. I'd recommend it to anyone who wants a suit to cover a little more for whatever reason, & if your reason is to hide body flaws, it gives nice lift, support & shaping. And still looks more like a little sundress or club dress rather than a stereotypical 'grannysuit', so it wouldn't look odd for younger women either.

Stylish and it fit very well and was very comfortable. It provided the extra coverage that I was looking for.
The fit was very comfortable, good quality. I wore it on vacation in Galveston.

Pretty but needed to buy larger than normal size.

This suit really is as flattering as claimed! Modest coverage, very comfortable, secure straps - I highly recommend it. Definitely buy larger than you expect. Normally, I'm between an 18 and 20, but had to get a 22. I would have given 5 stars if it ran true to size and came in more colors.

The perfect swim suit!! But buy a size up!
Read the reviews and purchased that next size up. Love this suit!! Bought it for a trip to Florida and really liked the fit and feel of the suit. Very happy with this purchase.

Choose a size up for this beauty. The 16W bodice is snug for this regular size 14 top.
Worth getting in the next size up. It's a flattering fit in a pretty color. Gets compliments.That said, I returned the 14W to get the 16W. Normally in LE, I'm NOT a plus size, just regular 14 top & 16 bottom. I'm a "pear" with a small bosom and trim waist. The 16W bodice still feels a bit under-sized. I'm comfortable, but this pretty suit is not quite true to size.

Loved the Suit, but Color Fades QUICKLY
I absolutely LOVED this swimuit. Had to order a size up, like most of the reviewers. But it is slimming and made me feel good about being in a suit again. HOWEVER, after only five times in a chlorine pool, the suit is many shades lighter than when I originally bought it. And it is fading unevenly: the back is still deep purple but the front and skirt are very light. So it is very obvious that the color has faded. I expect much better quality and staying power from Lands End, especially at this price.

This swimsuit is the perfect beach wear for us plus size gals.
I absolutely love the fit of this swimsuit. Extremely leery of purchasing such a form fitting show it all to the world garment without first trying on. But after reading the reviews I decided to take a chance and so glad. I absolutely love the fit. It does support my DD size top and I did take the advice and ordered a size up. The material does not weigh down when wet as other swimsuits in past have done. I like that it has a little of a flare skirt to hide the top of the thigh area too. My only dislike was I wish it would have been availability in other colors or even prints. Purple was the ONLY color. Us big gals would love to have fun colors and prints! I most definitely recommend this swimsuit.
