Women's Slender Floral Tunic One Piece Suit
Neck Clasp Doesn't Work Well
I actually really love suit- the fit is great and it's very comfortable and cute... BUT the clasp/hook on the neck does not stay clasped AT ALL. It's very frustrating. It comes undone every 10 minutes or so based on movement. I wish I could buy another suit without the weird clasp, but I just can't afford to at $115-$150 each. :(

Loved the way the suit fit except that the side bra support strips dug in. In my opinion they should have been sewn in between the layers of material.
The side bra support strips dug in. They should have been sewn in between the material. It was only attached on one side. If it had been sewn down on both sides it might have been ok but it wasn't.

It has a skirt!
I usually wear an 8P. I bought this in 8 DD. The fit was good and it looked beautiful, but it has a skirt! In the description of the suit, LE called it an 'overlay'. But sorry guys, it is a skirt, a short one, but a skirt none-the-less. The model is standing in such a way that even in the larger photo, it blends into the suit. When I tried it on, it was very evident, unlike the picture, it is longer than the bottom of the suit.
It makes the suit look dowdy and most of LE's one piece suits have this little addition.

I was looking for a swimsuit that could stand up to chasing after my kids in the pool but was still feminine and attractive. This suit is perfect! The Slender Suit construction gave my post baby body the nips and tucks it needed without squeezing too much.

The color is beautiful. I received many compliments about the suit and the fit.
Ordering a swimsuit from Land's end is so easy. Just measure and order. In a few days your perfectly fitting suit arrives.

Cut differently from before, or what?
I have had this same suit in size 16 DD (not 16W) for years and it is in some ways my favorite swimsuit -- feels good, straps never fall down, looks pretty good (I don't like the print on the old version much), covers the center front discreetly without having an annoying skirt.. Since I am large-busted, and not getting any thinner, I ordered this suit more recently in 18W DDD. As some others have noted, the suit does not provide support in this size. I think that's because the elastic band under the bust doesn't go around the back -- ? (not that it did in my old suit either). Yet, I find that the body of the18W barely comes up far enough, so the bottom of the bra section is too low -- another reason for lack of support. And I am only 5 foot 1!! (okay, I take it up in the "tummy".) I got out a measuring tape and discovered that from crotch to elastic bra band, the old, fine-fitting size 16 is two or three inches LONGER that the badly-fitting size 18W. Does that make any sense to anyone? The bra design is also different -- the cups go all the way to the side seams and stays in the old one but not the new one. I would buy another of these tunic suits, but I have no idea what size to try now! I checked off "true to size", but actually it's too small in the abdominal area and too large in the bust. The sizes are (pardon the pun) BUSTED!

Cascading floral swimsuit
I found this on sale and is well worth the price!!! My husband loved it on me. The swimsuit fit is secure, which I like, especially the crisscross back and the secure closure at the neck. I usually do not wear black, but this is great!!! Land's End never let me down!!!

Beautiful suit but...
I loved the look of the suit but it is not offered in long torso and I could not get it up past my stomach! runs at least 2 sizes smaller and was very tight around the mid section. I had to return it and did not re order in a larger size because then it would have been too big in other places just to get it to reach my chest!

Not for exercise!
This was the first time I ordered a suit on-line and doubt I would do it again.
It is a beautiful suit, very stylish and I received several complements. However, I do physical therapy in the pool every day and it is not at all comfortable for this activity. I don't like the extra front panel and the front straps rub on my arms all the time I am exercising. Since, I already wore it, I will keep the suit and have to wear it periodically. It is not a suit I can wear everyday.
Probably very acceptable for sitting on the beach or by the pool, but not for pool physical therapy.

I was afraid I would never find a bathing suit I could wear to the Wellness Center for water exercises as I am a short, large busted older woman. This suit in a 14 DDD fits very well and provides plenty of support to the bust while trimming my middle, I look better than just "acceptable" and am ordering it in the pink.
