Women's Plus Size Slender Tulip Swimdress
Nice suit, but....
This was one of the few plus size suits I could find without an underwire bra, so that was a plus. When I got it, the cups had some odd folds in the cup material, and I was hoping that with wear, they would work themselves out, but, unfortunately, they didn't. They were still lumpy and bumpy. The other bad fit item was in the crotch. For some reason, it was really thin, and I felt like way too much of me was hanging out the sides. Thank heaven for the skirt!

BEST SWIMDRESS IVE EVER WORN IN MY LIFE
Honestly in order to make sure I picked the perfect size i measured my bust waist and hips and i chose the DD cup 16W. I am about 195 pounds but very big in chest and rear. This swimsuit bottom is FULL coverage on butt which i am not used to so maybe a person with a smaller butt would find it big but it fits me perfectly. The DD cup chest is PERFECT im a 38DD so the top fits great, no spillage and full comfortable coverage and lift. The color wild grape is beautiful and a nice break from black. My sister said this swimsuit makes me look at least 20 pounds lighter- and she wants one too and is a size 2 herself. A DEFINITE MUST BUY

the swimsuit fit wonderfully and was a subtle grape color, my only exception to the fit was that it was short in the torso length
if you are short in the torso it will fit great, but if long, be prepared to alter. I added rings at the shoulder to lengthen.

Best swimsuit I've had in a long time
I usually cannot stand to wear anything tight or clingy, like swimsuits naturally are. Even though this suit hugs your body, it does not feel tight and claustrophobic like most suits. I suppose it might have something to do with the fabric. It is soft and stretchy, not tight and restrictive. The only thing I do not like about this suit is that the neckline plunges a teeny bit too low for my older gal taste, but it feels so nice wearing it otherwise, I can live with it.

Love this suit!
Fits beautifully, looks nice, pretty color. Would like to buy in other colors if/when available. Suggest ordering one size up.

Good quality swimsuit, but is much too big.
This product was much too large, and too long, for me. I will be returning it. Unfortunately, I have to mail this item back, since Sears no longer takes returns from Land's End. I was informed of this when I tried to return it. This was an option as stated in my paperwork as well as on-site.

Nice color but breast area is a bit wonky
The suit is great, runs a little small so order larger size. The way the suit fits in the breast area is a bit wonky but not so much that I want to return it. Nice and lightweight, suit did not get heavy as some do when wet.

BEST swimsuit I have every purchased from Lands End.
This swimsuit is perfect for me. After reading the reviews, I ordered a bigger size than normal. The suit fits well in all the unusual places. The straps are sturdy yet not uncomfortable. I love the color - am committed to avoiding black. All older heavy women wear black.....

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.
