Women's Plus Size Texture Squareneck One Piece Swimsuit
Great fitting...just read the sizing measurements!
As a DD busted woman, I need good support in a swimsuit, which is hard to come by. By reading the bust/torso measurements, I determined I needed a 16W LONG torso. I ordered the dark purple and am totally happy! I feel supported in the bust, and am tastefully covered but with a stylish color/fabric. Thank you Land's End!

Great color & style, fits ok
I love the color and styling of this suit. The fabric is substantial, it holds me in and smooths things out without feeling like I'm wearing shapewear. The texture camouflages that which is no longer flat. I am a DD and it's plenty supportive.
My only issue is the length. I am 5' 7", with a long torso. I normally stay away from one-piece suits because they don't fit. I thought I was safe ordering this version. It's barely long enough for me.

I bought this suit last season in black and am still so happy with it, I bought it again this season in another color (although I am definitely not wild about the colors offered). The first one I bought was way too short, but when I bought the long torso suit, it fit great (even though I normally would not need a long torso suit!) The texture and weight of the fabric feel good; it is very supportive and holds everything in! The down side of that is that it takes a bit longer to dry, but worth it. Basic black is always good, but wish it came in some more "vibrant" color...like a colbalt blue or hot pink, etc. Overall, a great suit!

Wish I had sent this suit back. It is very heavy and uncomfortable, not enough spandex, under arms are too low, under wire & bust in general are not shaped correctly.

Bust wire not necessary
The wire was very uncomfortable and the bust too big for the size of the suit. One person said they took the wire off but since I had to return anyway I did not try it. The body, however, was very flattering. It was a lot of material and thick. That alone would have been ok for me.

Fits too small.
While I really liked the style and the material, I have to say it was definitely not proportioned. I am average in body length and this suit was way too short for me.

Love this suit!
This is the most comfortable suit I have ever owned -- much better than those bikinis of years ago and even the one piece and tankinis. I bought this for aqua aerobics. It is perfect. Doesn't ride up, straps stay in place and don't fall down. I bought the tall/long which I have done for years. Perfect length for me! The texture distracts from my senior lumps and bumps. When the new batch comes in next spring, I am getting another because I love this suit so much!

Winner! Best of 4 tried for water aerobics
I am looking for suits for water aerobics. I am a size 18w, and 5ft 3 tall, and a D cup. I like underwire suits for the extra support and wanted to find a good supporting suit for the class. I purchased 4 different suits to try, this among them. This one was the winner.
Highlights - gives me shape and support, fairly flattering look, feels like everything is in the right place.
Concerns - I haven't tried it for the class yet, but these are some hmm's I have
- it's a little short-waisted (not as much as the others I tried), will it ride up?
- I bought the Azalea Rose, will the color hold exposed to chlorine 3 days a week?
- it's a thicker material than the other 3, will take a really long time to dry?
I'll write another review after a month or so of classes!
The other suits in my group of 4 were: 39790-4a50 - tugless tank; 425559-7a56 aqua fitness and 42716-3A51 aqua fitness.

Top is too big
Texture is very interesting. Had difficulty with the top of suit. Removed the underwire and that
helps but it's still not a smooth fit.

Most Comfortable suit ever!!
I am 5'7" 225lbs mostly in bust(DDD) and waist(have none). This suit was only available in 20W long when I got it so thats what I ordered and it fit great. Normally in Lands end I would order a 18W. In suits I often have trouble with torso length so I decided on the long. That was the best idea ever. I think if available the 18W long would have been perfect but I love this suit. Spent 3 day weekend tubing, swimming, snorkeling,
hiking and playing with grandkids at the river and had zero uncomfortable moments!! Great support and coverage on top which is always an issue for me. Want to buy more just to make sure I always have one. The fabric texture is SO Beautiful! Got lots of compliments on the suit even with my generous curves in it!!
