This is a perfect top for women with an hourglass figure. So flattering, love it!

This Short Girl Is IN LOVE
I'm a short-waisted 5'2" with no waist or chest to speak of - your basic square - but this swimsuit works miracles. The bottom hem comes down to the leg openings of my swimsuit bottoms, which is perfect for covering a belly, and the ruching down the front hides a lot of flaws. I can see how some other reviewers would think that the neckline is too low, but if you're small chested, this suit gives you the illusion of having cleavage, with well-designed cups and a halter you can adjust. Next time there's a site-wide sale, I'm ordering one of these in every color.

Beautiful top at a reasonable price.

Loved the color, just not the fit
The length was shorter than what we expected and it did not fit very well through the bust area.

I bought this top to go with the higher bottom and like it very much. Although it is much lower then the other v tops. If you prefer not to show any cleavage then this is not the top for you. This top definately shows cleavage, instead of going in a v it goes in a u shape and therefore shows off more of the breast. Makes me feel sexy but yet I feel very covered.

Sexy. Flattering. Comfortable.
This is an attractive, comfortable, flattering top. The pattern and ruching does the same work that a super constricting fabric would, so you get the slimming effect without the discomfort. It's lower cut than some other Lands End swimwear, which makes it more modern and sexy. Good support, though, which I appreciate.I have a number of similar tops and should probably return this one, but I'm going to keep it because it's the best combination of comfort and slimming that I've got. I feel attractive in this, but can also swim and play in the water. Such a relief to find that sweet spot where I don't look like a teenager, nor boringly motherly.

Top cut way too low
I just recently purchased this top to go with the tummy control skirt. I love the material and fit, except the low cut top. Luckily the straps were long enough that I could cut about 3 inches off the ends and use the fabric to add a V shaped insert to the cleavage area. This was the third suit that I ordered and the other two went back for various reasons. I have worn Lands End swim suits for probably 30 years and have loved them, this is the first time that I have had to alter one. I kept this one as our vacation is getting close and I needed a new suit, but falling out of my suit at the beach on vacation with our 3 young grandsons and our son-in-law is not on my bucket list. With the V insert it is still lower than I would like, but at least I will not have to worry about falling out of it. I would only recommend this suit if you know have to alter things, but I don't feel that you should have to alter things if the designers were paying attention.

Surprisingly great fit for a big bust
I've had the worst time finding a suit with a 32 DD bust (after kids/nursing)- most non-bra sized cups just don't work. Not sure why I even ordered this one, but I was surprised that it fit so well. I got an 8 and do wish it was a tad snugger around my middle, but I was willing to deal with that since the suit is so cute. This is definitely a bit sexier than you'd imagine for Lands End but seems sturdy enough to survive a day at the beach with kids. I had to write a review because I think this poor model really doesn't do it justice. Could they have done her hair or something? This is a hot suit. The regular bottoms are also cute- definitely don't get the skirt!

Not for every body
32D, 130lb, 5'2, tried size 6.
I love the ruching up the torso and will probably keep it because of it (because I'm a little desperate for a ruched tankini top). Otherwise I'm disappointed. The breasts are too far apart for my ribcage, so I'll need to sew the pieces together in the middle for support and to avoid a scandal. I'm also concerned about the ties coming undone. How about adding a clasp for extra security?
I wish Land's End would make suits in bra sizes, or at least with bra-type hook fasteners in back.

The "v" is CRAZY low, dropping BELOW the bottom of my breast so you see EVERYTHING! The rouching has no give at all, very uncomfortable. It is not nearly as long as the photo shows.
