Women's Squareneck Slender Suit Swimdress
I love this suit.
First, the pros:
Modest but cute
Beautiful color (liberty blue)
Good seat coverage
Nice coverage for hips and thighs without looking like you're trying
Really nice fabric
Now the cons:
Any suit at this price should have a real, adjustable bra in it, especially for D cup and above. I have gotten ones at department stores for less. Not enough support and modesty as is. Thin mesh bra shows everything if you get a chill, as others have noted
This suit can be flattering, but it's not going to do any miracles ;-)
With all of that said, I still love the suit. I ordered a 14 with hip and bust measurements in that range (but smaller waist) and it fit nicely. I wear DD to DDD, and the support is not flattering in my opinion (though my husband says it's fine). I will either take up the straps and slip in foam cups from an old bra or cut out the underwire and just sew in a real bra. One could just wear a bra underneath, too, if it doesn't show. Tried it with the bra underneath, and it looked great (but showed ever so little). I think the cross-pieces under the bust are much more flattering with some support of the bust.
That's a lot of extra work for a suit of this price, but I like it and have a hard time finding one that fits and flatters at any price. I will say that I love the length. I am 5'6" with long legs, and I think it's perfect for me.

I was so excited to get something I thought I could swim in AND wear into a resort restaurant for modesty, but I look like a throw back to the 1920s aboard a cruise ship. I did order up a size (size 6) and so the dress fit really well BUT it looked like the swim suit I wore reluctantly during my maternity. Somehow I also misunderstood this is a full swimsuit underneath and also order an unnecessary bikini bottom. Too bad, hope this helps others because I LOVE the separates like the swim mini and tops.

LuV this suit, but
I agree with the other reviewers. Order a size up. I usually wear a 12, but a 14 worked better especially for my midsection. I think the length is great. I am a mom and want a modest suit to wear around my kids and their friend, but also want a suit with a little sexy and this it is. The only negative (for me since I have DDD's) is the fit of the top portion. I wish they made this suite for larger busted women. I fixed the fit by taking in the straps. Otherwise, a GREAT BUY. So great, I am back to buy another color for this year.

wish it came in a long
Fit would be great if it came in a tall - Lands End, please offer this in a long torso.

Wow! I'm so glad I ordered this suit. It's fit is perfect. I typically order 14 reg, but read other reviews and thought I'd try a 16 and it's perfect. Easy on, easy off, well made, slimming, pretty color.Underwire doesn't hurt. Thanks for this great suit.

Nice swim dress!
I really like this swim dress. Glad I ordered a size larger because it runs small. The fit is nice but I wish there was just a little more support across the abdomen.

Perfect vacation coverage...Great quality. Runs small.
I am a little upset because the original order (size 12) was too small. I returned it an before I received the larger size, this item went on sale but I still paid the original price charged to me.

Not enough fabric in the skirt
Loved the fit of the top but skirt didn't have enough fabric.
Would be perfect on a slim person. I had to return it.
The color was beautiful.

I love this bathing suit!
I am very happy to have finally found a bathing suit that covers a good part of my upper legs and still looks so fashionable. I usually wear a size 8 but the 10 fits perfectly. The purple is a lovely shade. I hope that this suit will be available in the future with other color and pattern choices.
