Women's Princess One Piece Slender Suit
i ordered this suit as an old one was just done after years of use (also from lands end) this suit came and fit perfectly. i LOVE LOVE LOVE that it has ADJUSTABLE straps!! so i didn't need to do any altering of my own. it is good sturdy fabric and i hope to be using it for YEARS.

I bought this swimsuit in Dark Coral last year because when I saw the picture in the catalog, I thought it might possibly be the most beautiful suit I had ever seen. I bought it even though I had sworn off one piece suits because they are so hard to get into and out when they are wet and even thought I knew I wouldn't look as good in it as the model. I didn't get a chance to wear it until just recently and while I thought the fit was actually very good, there is a seam up the backside that is uncomfortable and bothersome. I don't understand why there would be a seam up the back but it was a bad idea. Otherwise the suit is beautiful.

I got the princess slender suit in the coral pink color
I wanted to get this suit on sale, so ordered the coral pink color and I decided to try the size 12, although I usually order the 10 long in slender suits. People were saying this one ran long, so I ordered the size 12 because that was all they had. I like it except it is big on me...kind of like most swimsuits that don't have the control built in. The extra room in the behind is good for me....that others actually complained about. My size 10 slender suit...the Grecian style is tight on my legs in back. This particular suit has more room so it is not so tight around my legs. ...and I think it is more flattering to not have it so tight around your legs back there. So for me this is a plus. I want to have this suit in the black or in the purple now...but those colors are not on sale. BTY/ I wear these suits every other day in a chlorinated pool. Right now I am using a royal blue slender suit in the round neck ruched style...the straps are not adjustable like the Princess is. Therefore I prefer the Princess by far. Also have the Grecian and it also does not have adjustable straps, so again the Princess wins out. I am 5 7" 126 lbs 35 28 38 I have a long torso and the Princess actually works well for me even though I did get it in the regular length. This is by far the best style for my figure because it runs long and has ample room around the legs and the built in bra helps and also the adjustable straps. Very nice suit and very flattering. I hope they don't discontinue this suit.

Great look and fit, not lasting the test of time
I bought this suit 6 months ago. The fit is very flattering and I like the adjustable shoulder straps and fabric; however, I'm not pleased with its durability. I swim once a week with my baby boy (not lap swimming, just casual). The elastic in the straps is already starting to wear out. This suit may be designed more for the once a year vacation swimmer and not a regular like myself. Only issue with the fit is the butt rides up just slightly. I'm a curvy size 8 though so most all suits do this on me, regardless of the promise of full coverage.

Best fit ever
I'm a curvy size 14 and generally do not wear bathing suits. This is the first suit I've had in a long time that I felt sexy in. The size 14 felt a little loose but the size 12 fits perfectly around the waist and bottom areas. I just wish there was more lift and support in the bust.

gapping band on thighs
As noted by another reviewer, this suit doesn't fit. The band on the thighs is much to big leaving a big gap. Returning mine unused.

I have a hard time finding a suit that looks good on my curvy shape, and I'm quite happy with this one. I wanted a 10 D, but it only comes in black, which I don't like. I love the Wild Grape color, so I ordered a 12 Petite instead. Bust is a bit tight, as I expected. The rest of it fits great. I'm very happy with the full coverage in the rear and I am not constantly pulling it down like I am with other brand suits. If the Purple had come in the D-cup size, I would have given it a 5 instead of a 4.

From the front, love it. Chic, classic design. From the back?? The fabric sags at the leg band. I've never had a bathing suit fit like this. Makes me self-conscious to wear it. Will be returning the bathing suit.
