Women's Slender Suit Scoopneck One Piece Swimsuit
I like it, just can't wear it
This is a nice quality swimsuit. It's very pretty and flattering, but for me it just doesn't fit. I have a very straight torso with a full chest and narrower hips. This suit is definitely built for someone with a smaller chest and very wide hips - the classic pear shape. If you don't have that shape, the derriere area ends up baggy if the chest fits. For me either the chest was too small or the hips were too big or both. I really wish it would work, or that Lands End made a size for straighter bodies.

One of the most comfortable bathing suits I've had. Supportive and hides body flaws. I swim laps 2-3 times a week, and so far its holding up well. I am a plus size woman who needs support for swimming and occasional water aerobics. My only complaint is L.E. plus size suits in general have ample rear room and less in the front, so I get saggies in my butt, and the front rides a little to the side sometimes. I am sure many woman are built bigger in the rear than I am, so it would accommodate them better.

Best one piece suit!
I never write reviews, but this suit is so great I had to. Perfect fit, flatters throughout. I got the first one in Liberty blue, it is like a more cheerful navy, very classic, but not boring. I loved it so much I ordered 2 more. This suit is great for laps, but stylish enough for the beach.

I have a long torso and a lot of extra skin from carrying twins. I bought this is in a long size 16. Fits perfectly. The only complaint I have about their bathing suits is the leg holes. Why they make then so tight and low I have no idea. I think a little higher leg would look much better on a heavier thigh

Underwire popped out during 1st wash!
This bathing suit fit well, looked decent & seemed great quality. (I actually own same suit in a smaller size & had it for 2 yrs, no problems) THIS SUIT on the other hand the underwire popped out after the very first wash! I wore it once, washed it once & blammo the wire popped through & was jammed in the wall of the washing machine!! I has to snap it to get it out of the machine. Total bummer. Very disappointing.

Good option that isn't low cut
I have a few Lands End swimsuits and although I like the look of swimsuits with more cleavage, sometimes I would rather wear something less revealing. This one seems like it will fit the bill. Was very happy that a swimsuit purchased on line fit so well. I haven't gone swimming in it yet - just got it - but I think it will be great for Aqua Aerobics - in my other suits, although I love them, I can't really jump around. I think the underwire and the high cut is going to work well yet it doesn't look matronly.

I'm thrilled you have suits in my size that fit just right! I swim several days a week!

Like other reviewers, I was disappointed that the Carmela suit was not available this year and thought I was settling for this suit. I was pleasantly surprised the 12 D suit fit me even better than the Carmela. I like that I can order a cup size. The suit covers the bust area completely but is very flattering to the figure. Even if the Carmela came back, I would choose this suit over it.

A good purchase.
This is a good quality suit that stands up better than some to frequent (several times each week) dips in chlorinated water. I find the under wiring really helps support my ample bust during aqua fitness classes, adding to my comfort and confidence. The seat is a bit loose, but that often seems to be the case for me with suits from Land's End. Wish there were more options in underwired, one- piece bathing suits for people who like to work out in the water. Bandeaus, plunging necklines, thin straps, etc, just don't do the trick. (There was a suit a few years ago that was even better for this...Carmelita? Carmela? Something like that...wish it would be brought back!)

Comfortable and attractive
This is the best swim suit I could find and continually return to buy the same one over and over again. The reason I have to continue buying this suit is that I've found that this suit nor any other one typically can not last more then 6 months of 3X a week swimming in a highly chlorinated therapy pool. By the 6 month mark my suits have a marble-like coloring all over and the elastic strands throughout the suit have stretched-out or broken particularly the entire back site of the suit. I strongly believe it is the high chlorine content of the pool that is causing the problem.
That being said, I've looked and looked for cheaper suits (that I wouldn't mind as much becoming useless at 6 months) but have not found a suit that is as comfortable and as attractive to wear. My other requirement of any swim suit is that it is easy to put on particularly when pulling over my shoulders because I have severe cervical spine issues that limit the use of my shoulders and arms. This suit is the easiest one I've ever put on
