Women's Shape & Enhance Knot Surplice Tankini Top
Love this tankini top - flattering and slenderizing with the extra spandex. Cute straps, nice neckline, stays put. Everything I want.

Best top I've ever owned
This is by far the best top I've ever owned! I'm 5'3 and 200 lbs with large girls (that stayed in place). This top has all the control I needed and more! I've only washed it in cold water and hung to dry. I'd never put it in the dryer because it has the rubber support at the bottom. That did ride up some but nothing that was unexpected. I wore it 4 times last week and it's my favorite!

Like the fit, but discoloration a problem
I really like this suit. The fit and comfort is very good, however, I had the same problem as a few other reviewers. After a few times in the pool the white swirls have all turned yellow/tan colored. Other than that problem, the suit is great! I wear a size 14 and it fit true to size. I especially like the fit of the cups, and the silicon band at the bottom that keeps the hem from riding up.

Nice fit through mid section and hips but....
I like this swim suit top. I ordered size 14. It fits nice through the stomach area and hips. I am big busted (40D) and the cups were a just a tiny bit too small for me. I had to keep adjusting the fit on top to make sure I did not expose too much. I thought of ordering the next size up, but I was concerned that the top would be too big. I like the top and will keep it. If you are smaller than a 40D you should do fine.

Looks great on and is comfortable. If you're in doubt about the size, recommend getting the next size up.

Pretty but not functional
While this is a beautiful suit it is not practical for use. I realize sometimes the need arises for a fashionable swim suit but I needed something more useful. I have come to really trust the sizing and descriptions provided by Land's End however this time it was not reliable. The suit is not true to size, running small. The fabric is flimsy and skimpy compared to others i have purchased through LE. I think there should be a "Fashion Swim" category so that the pretty suits are in one section and the ones to actually swim in can be found in another.

OK if you like this style
I especially like the straps, side and back coverage of this top. The tummy controlling aspect was uncomfortable though. As I have mentioned in my review of the swim mini, Lands End's faille separates (no longer available) were very comfortable, yet also tummy flattering due to the substantial fabric. I'd love to purchase new faille separates. Think you can bring them back?

Great support for the "girls" but hate the tummy bulge
I was hesitant to get this because I definitely have a tummy bulge after not taking very good care of myself for many years. And I was worried about the color turning yellow when I went on my cruise. Even so, I felt that my "girls' were not well supported in my old suits, so I gave this one a try. And I'm glad I did. Yes, the mid-part of my tummy bulges out. It's not pretty. But that's my fault, and I'm working to lose some of the weight. Once I do, it's going to be a fabulous suit, as it lifts the bosom and keeps them from falling out all over the place. (I'm a 42-44 D, and ordered the size 22 suit.) I also love the length, and how it has some sort of rim underneath near the bottom that helps the top stay "stuck" to the skirt part of the suit. Great for the hot tub -- and the beach! By the way, I wore the suit on a seven-day cruise, and the colors still look great -- no yellowing to report here. Nice suit top -- just wish it cost a little less!

Sent it back
Nice color and print. Nice length. Perfect amount of cleavage coverage. Sent it back because the braided straps were not comfortable and did not look good.
