Women's Slender Suit Scoopneck One Piece Swimsuit
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.

Flattering and modest - perfect for aquafit
I like this suit because the top is flattering and I can count on coverage no matter how vigorously I participate in aquafit classes. Although size 14 is often my choice for Lands End clothes, I got a size 16 for this suit. because in the past I found that with the slimming fabric, the bigger size is easier to get on and off in a hurry and still looks flattering. It's a wee bit roomy for me at the back/bottom but not especially noticeable.

Not the Carmela
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. Many of my aqua aerobics friends have the Carmela and love it. We are all disappointed it seems to be no longer available at Lands End.

As a DDD, finding a swimsuit is not easy. This suit is perfect! Not only does it offer support, but also coverage. I love that the underwire offers support and is comfortable. This is the only suit I've bought in the past and then purchased the same suit the next season.
