Women's Slender Suit Scoopneck One Piece Swimsuit
A good suit with plenty of control. Fits well in the seat which is a particular problem with some suits on me, they tend to get baggy 'cause my top is bigger than my bottom. Only wish the straps were a little stronger, but otherwise there's good support in the top.

Worst fitting suit I ever have had
I tried both a size 10 & a size 12 Tall (normally a 10T). The fit of this suit is off: the bust does have a STRONG underwire, but no cup of any kind; the legs are much too loose; the straps are much too tight (because of the "twist" in the back).Can't believe it is a Land's End product

quality has declined from previous versions of this slender suit
I've counted on Land's End Slender Suits for several years, and I ordered two of these Scoopneck suits to replace two which I purchased 2-3 years ago. I was disappointed to find that the design had changed and that it didn't work the "magic" the old design worked for me, that the fabric quality and "luxe" feel had declined, and that all details had less integrity. e.g., the shoulder straps are slightly narrower, and with thinner fabric, they just cut into my shoulders. I'm returning these suits and hope, hope, hope, that Land's End will return to their higher quality design and materials for this suit.

The upper half of this suit was very uncomfortable. the arm openings were too tight and the underwire in the bra was designed for a very well-busted woman. It was heavy-duty wire and very annoying. I have a long torso and ordered the plus tall and it was still just slightly too short.

Good fit, Flattering
Just got this suit today and I love it! The shirred waistline holds you in and hides figure flaws. I like that the bustline is not too low.

Soooooo not the Carmella...
Like other reviewers, I was looking to buy another Carmella swimsuit; it is hands down the most flattering one-piece swimsuit I've ever owned. I thought I'd give this one a try, and I was so disappointed. The biggest difference for me was the fabric- it is so thin and not as slimming. The bustline on this is not as pretty or supportive as on the Carmella. I returned it. Lands End, please bring back the Carmella, PLEASE!

Missing the Carmella
I hate bathing suit shopping but discovered the Carmella suit a couple of years ago. Have it in teal and black. Thought I'd try for another color or even a pattern this year but found only this to consider as I've tried a lot of the other styles. Tried it on in the store and was so disappointed. Please Please PLEASE!!! Listen to your customers!! (and there are a lot of them commenting similarly here) We really want the Carmella back. It's such a wonderful suit. Flattering, well fitting on this aging body. I get compliments all the time on the style and fit and believe me at this point in the game that doesn't happen often! It's got to be the suit! Please!!!! Help a girl out and bring it back!

Suit was too big at the bottom
I was looking for a bathing suit that offered decent coverage and was comfortable for swimming in the ocean. The material seemed sturdy enough and it fit great all over except for the backside, where it seemed kind of baggy. I am bigger on top but if I went down one size, I'm afraid I'd look squeezed in. For the past few years I have bought a bathing suit from LE that had more drape on top, with a crisscross at the back, and proportional fit all around, but it wasn't available this season. Come on, marketing department, bring that suit back, please! I've read other reviews and many of us are asking for the same style. Listen to your customers, please!

Thought this suit looked similar to the Carmela which I have worn for years and have had several of, but was very disappointed that it is definitely not the same quality as Carmela. Please bring back the Carmela. I am SOOOOOO disappointed it seems to be no longer available at Lands End. It does not fit perfectly like the Carmala. It "blows up" with air in the pool and hot tub at the YMCA. The neck it too low cut and not good coverage like the Carmela. The material isn't the nice thick quality. It wasn't "broke' so why did you try to fix it. Please bring back Carmela.
