Women's Slender Floral Tunic One Piece Suit
Suit style does wonders for my plus size body
I really like the style, quality and colors of this suit as well as the support it gives me. However, it is "supposed" to be long in the body. I do not think there is any difference in body length and really wish it was longer thru the body. During water aerobics the suit does rise up on my butt a little but not too much to matter. It still is my favorite suit.

Gorgeous on, but not for swimming laps
I bought this suit because it was really cute. I needed a suit for swimming laps, and the sports suits I tried on were too revealing. It fit a little tight, but I figured that was better for laps swimming because you don't want a suit that shifts positions while exercising. It looked great on. I felt like a full-figured movie star of the 1950s! When a suit makes you feel that way, you know you have something special. Unfortunately, the product did not function well as a sports suit. It doesn't say it in the product description, but there are plastic stays on the sides of the suit under the arms. That helps to give the suit structure for shaping saggy curves into something sexy, but they wore into my skin while I was swimming so badly that I had to stop my swim before my workout was finished. Then I saw the damage: scabs down each of my sides that took more than a week to heal. I have never worn the suit again. If I need a suit to sit poolside to talk to friends without swimming, I would wear it, but not for anything active. It gets three stars for looking fantastic. But they really should explain in the text if there are hard plastic pieces in the suit.

This is my second bathing suit from Lands End. They are the best. I can't find bathing suits anywhere else that fit so well or are so well made. My other one was purchased 4 years ago and it still looks new.

The BEST fit ever suit. Shows off the positives and covers the "extras".
This is the suit I wear to Lake Michigan and when in "public". I was happy to get it in a bit of color. I have had two in black and worn through them because I swim three times a week in chlorinated pool. My teenage daughter also has this suit and LOVES it. (I can't have it in pink because we might be seen together.) My only request would be to make it in a variety of prints. This suit fits because I can order it in a long. I would be more than happy to wait if this could be special ordered and made in my choice of fabric. In other words...I realize that you can not make this in 25 different colors/prints and stock all sizes. What I suggest is making it after I order it. Even if it would take two to three months for delivery, I would be thrilled.

I loved this suit so much I bought a second in pink!
Love that I can get a flattering suit in a Plus size, with a DD top that has a clasp at the back neck. When I swim, the straps stay put! Order also shipped to Canada in a week - an unexpected bonus.

Flattering suit for any shape and age
This suit is comfortable and yet slimming. I did not feel restricted at all. I really like the little "skirt" in front. Helps hide the upper thigh. Love it. Bought another in a solid color. On sale now and I'm ready for next summer.

Love the suit, wish the pink hadn't sold out I would get a second.
I have a large tummy and thighs and a smaller top. This suit was very flattering. I felt like one of the glamorous movie actresses in it instead of an old heavy lady. it was great in the surf in Hawaii as it stayed put unlike my tankini style.

The suit fits well and makes me look smaller, love the colors

Not flattering for me
For my shape this suit was not flattering. Although I appreciate the modest leg cut, it seemed to come too far down on my legs and made my hips and thighs look large (which they really aren't---I wear a size 8 and am 5'6 so I'm fairly slender). The slendering stomach was great and I loved the way the top fit, but overall it just wasn't flattering and I ended up returning it.
