Women's Shape & Enhance Scoop One Piece Swimsuit
I ordered a size 8 which I normally wear a size 6 and it felt to short so I re-ordered in a size 10, I am 5'6 and 122 pounds. Hope this helps someone else.

This swimsuit is to short
I love the dots and the belt. I took the advise from another review and bought a bigger size but it's still to short. I don't know if I should return it or suffer with it being to short. It's such a cute swimsuit.
Whatever happened to advertising the cut of the swimsuit. I remember when you advertised the kindest cut that covered your butt. Hi cut..medium and kindest cut.

Wanted to love it but it's very short waisted
I absolutely loved the print. Not overwhelming polka dots, just small and pretty polka dots. The fabric is nice ~ very nice quality, holds you in without being uncomfortable. Loved the belt. It's adds a nice touch and a little interest at the waist. I took the advice of others and ordered up a size. I think I could have gone up even one more size. Regardless, unfortunately for me, it is cut very short. If you are at all long waisted, this is not the suit for you. It wasn't even about showing too much cleavage, it was about the top of the suit not even coming up to the midway line of my chest. Offer the suit again in a long torso (add several inches to the length of the body), and I will buy it! Again, very cute but just not long enough.

I'm proud of my body, but no longer feel the need to show every inch of it. Finding a one-piece suit that doesn't feel matronly or too covered up can be challenging. This one is really cute. Definitely has a vintage feel to it with the dots and high-waist belt. The built in underwire cups offer a little support and impressively do not show through. I'm 33, 5'4", 118lbs, generally wear an XS or 2. I ordered the 8 here, wary of other reviewer's tales of wrestling their way into the suit. It works (alas, there's no time to reorder before the vacation), but I think a 6 would have been better and given me a smoother fit across the tush and bust. Size up, but maybe not two sizes. Overall, a cute really well made suit at a great sale price!

Not for tall girls
It is a beautiful suit but if you have a long torso, keep searching. I am 5'9" and when I put the suit on, the bust hit me about two inches shy of where it should have. I ended up giving it to a shorter friend, because I thought it was such a cute suit.

Fortunately I read the reviews before ordering. I wear a 12 in the tugless tank and just received a size 16 which barely fits. It really is tight and corset-like, so much so I think an 18 would've fit better. How on earth they got the sizing so very wrong is beyond me!
I wish the straps were a little wider too. It makes sense that underwires provide more support for those of us gifted with a larger chest.... in which case slightly wider straps would also make sense. Because the suit is so tight it kind of pulls down a bit and because I'm a D cup I need to be hoiked up.... which the thin straps don't do very well.
As has been pointed out it is a right bugger to get on. You don't want to be in a hurry, but once it's on it's not going anywhere. I can't imagine trying to get it on if it was wet.
Apart from that it is a great suit, well made, flattering, nice print etc. and good value on sale. In spite of my criticisms I think I'll be keeping it.

High Quality -- Order 2 Sizes Up
I am 5'2', 115 lbs., and a B cup (measurements are approximately 34-26-36). I typically wear a 2 or 4 in pants and XS in tops. I carry my weight more in my hips and thighs (I have a small waist). This swimsuit definitely fits very small, so go up 2 sizes. I got a 6, and it just fits. If I gain any weight, I don't think I'd be able to wear it.
I orderd the navy with beige polka dots. The color was very saturated and looked better in person than on screen. It has a retro look to it for some reason (maybe the polka dots and belt?). The material is very thick and high quality and holds in the tummy area. There is an underwire bra, which gives some support (not that I have much to support). You cannot see the underwire from the outside. Shoulder straps are adjustable. I am short with medium torso length, but I had to adjust the shoulder straps to the longest level to fit, so be careful if you are tall and/or long-waisted. The leg rise is perfect. It was neither too high nor too low (the photo of the model is accurate).
There is subtle ruching in the waist at the sides and a removable belt held in place by belt loops. The belt has a gold metal snap buckle and is not adjustable. It was a tad loose on me, so the buckle kind of shifted around while I was swimming. If you wear the swimsuit without the belt, you will have belt loops sticking out of the sides, which I guess isn't a big deal. The suit stayed very secure while I was swimming, which is a requirement for me.
This is a great swimsuit, and I highly recommend it for those who want a slenderizing suit in a simple, classic look.

A very good looking suit!
This suit fits just right. I'm a square shape, and need some definition and toning at the waist line. This suit is very flattering and I feel good wearing it. The fabric and construction are excellent.

Great looking suit
This was by far one of the most expensive suits I've ever purchased....even on sale. (It has since reduced even further, which just kills me, but I digress). I am about a size ten or twelve; I ordered the sixteen in the swimsuit based on other reviews and it fits perfectly...not too tight, but plenty of support. I probably could have gone with the fourteen, but I don't like the feel of miracle suits or things that make me feel like I'm in a sausage casing, so for me two sizes up was comfy. I'm large chested and I love that it has adjustable straps, and doesn't show a ridiculous amount of cleavage...often a problem for me. I mean, who wants to the be the mom at the pool with her chest hanging out? It has nice support with the high back and retro styling. It's very slimming and falls in a good place on the leg. I've got a smaller waist, larger chest and hips; my body would have been most appreciated in the 1950's. This suit really make me look nice and put together without letting it all hang out.

I love this swimsuit!
This swimsuit is great and I also like the vintage look of the belt too.
Land's End def did homework for creating a swimsuit that woman wants to buy.
The material of swimsuit is tight that it does make my tummy area smoother!
HOWEVER, because material is tight, it does run a bit small when you put on.
I am 5'2", 114lb and I usually order Land's End, regular size 2 or Size S,
but this one is so tight, I had to order size 6 and it was actually perfectly fit for me.
SO, I will recommended to order few size bigger!! I added about +1 inch
to my regular size and order it.
