Women's Plus Size Slender Tulip Swimdress
LOVE this suit
I had the good fortune to try this suit on in my local Sears store, so I knew I would need one size up when ordering. I usually wear a size 18 bottom and 20/22 top. The size 22 works great for me. The huckleberry color is very pretty and different from all the black I always see. The skirt DOES NOT float up to reveal any thing underneath. The rouching is VERY flattering, hard to do on a plus size woman!! I've worn this to the pool and beach with no problems, seems to wash and dry well. Even my 11 year old daughter complimented me on this suit. Wish more suits were made like this one!!

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.

OMG, FINALLY a suit that suits!
OK, the fact is (if we're really having to FACE facts) that I'm short, dumpy, considerably overweight, have fat legs, cellulite and both a belly and a bottom! Does that make me want to stop swimming? NO!!! This bathing suit, however, makes me look and feel like a goddess! I don't know what it is about the styling, but suddenly I have a definite waist, the skirt is just long enough to cover the worst of my legs and I feel gorgeous. Want some advice? BUY IT! You won't be sorry. I'm about a size 22W and this makes me feel like a 16. I go to the hydrotherapy pool several times a week (at my age I'm starting to rust out!) and I've gotten admiring looks from the men and envious looks from the women. Am I ashamed of myself? Nope! It's nice to raise the occasional eyebrow! Even my husband wonders why I suddenly look so good in the pool, and that's the best of it! LOL

You look hot.....
So that is the reaction I received from my husband when I put the suit on. I am plus sized, and this just flatters in all the right spots. The bra inside holds me up perfectly and I am a DD cup.

I have worn this suit a couple of times, it fits good, the skirt is a nice length and it washes up nicely. I wish it came in more than 2 colors. I got the purple and really like it.

I can't believe how pretty I feel in this suit
I am one who has dreaded vacation because I'd have to hang out in a swimsuit for a week! Now that I have such a flattering suit I don't mind going to the pool with the kids I nanny any day of the week. Flattering for my pear shape. The cups in the bust are bigger than I need them, but it doesn't look awkward, and it fits my tummy and butt great so I don't mind. Highly recommend!

This suit is perfect! I used your size chart measurements to select the correct size suit and it fits perfectly. High quality material doesn't ride up & shoulder straps hold everything in place, even at the water park! The suit is very slenderizing & I no longer feel self conscious at the pool. I can relax knowing it is going to stay in place & provide modest coverage. Thank you for providing a suit that slenderizes and fits! I am thrilled!
