Women's Tunic One Piece Slender Suit
Good support for "the girls" and overall pretty slimming
I really am quite pleased with this suit. But I had to do a minor alteration first, since the DDD cup doesn't come in the petite torso sizes. Why not, I wonder? But oh, well. The regular torso was a little long for me, so I had to shorten the straps that have the closures attached. Not a complicated operation...if I can do it anyone can. Now I have all the support I need, and the suit is structured enough to give my apple shape at least the appearance of a more nipped-in waist. I ordered the snug size 10, and believe me, it's a little adventure to pull it on, but once I've got it up, it's comfortable and flattering. Oh, that little skirt thing hanging down in front probably looks old-school glamorous on a lot of women, but on me it just looks better if I tuck it up in the leg elastic so it's hidden. And then it looks fine, like the suit was just made that way. I know it sounds like I've have to go to a lot of trouble to get this suit on and looking right, but it's worth it.

The suit fell completely apart after 1 years use!!!!
I bought this suit in black, purple and blue, and loved the shape and great tummy control. This suit is too tight around the legs, I've never had that problem with any other Lands end swimsuits, but eventually it stretched a bit after use and time. However; the fabric began to fall completely apart on both the black and blue suit after having used them for about 1 year, with 1-2 swims a week, alternating between all the three suits. I used the purple one less, which is probably why it still not tearing apart. The fabric around the chest area became transparent and lighter, eventually completely see through. The suits had been mildly hand-washed in cold water after each swim, so this comes down to bad fabric quality. I'm very disappointed with this, having loved these suits.

This swimsuit is beautiful. It a big snug when you put it on but once it's on it fits amazing. It is so sliming and stylish.
The material is thick and the breast cups are slightly padded. I just ordered a second suit because I love it so much! Recommended to my mom and sister. Told them to get one right away. Rarely find a suit that flatters and looks stylish.

Flattering fit and super comfortable!
I purchased this suit last year in black. I LOVE it! I wear a DDD and it is hard to find a suit that not only fits but is also is supportive and this has the added bonus of being comfortable and flattering! So I just ordered the grape. Highly recommend!

Torso too long for my build.
The last 5 suits I have bought were Land's End. This suit, I either bought too big or the torso runs big. I still prefer my 3 older suits which crisscross in the back. The quality is good but it just feels like too much material.

Works for my DD chest!
I purchased this suit in a long, as I am nearly 5'10". I have a 38DD chest and have difficulty finding cute suits that are also functional (I like to swim, kayak, go to water parks, paddle board, and boogie board). This suit provides good coverage - the neckline is not frumpy-looking, but also does not show major cleavage (a plus for us over 50). I wore it tubing all day and didn't have to adjust anything or worry about anything falling out. The cup lining is actually sewn in so that I don't have to try to readjust it every time I put it on (why can't all swimsuits be this way?). It was everything I want in a suit - cute, comfortable, and supportive without making me look like I'm trying to be a teenager.

Bring back the textured fabric please!!!
I ordered a similar suit from Land's End years ago. The difference between that suit and this one is the fabric and the draping on the front of the suit. I took a chance and ordered this in black. I couldn't return it to my local Sears store fast enough. It is way too shiny; think wet innertube or Shamu. It was unbelievably unflattering despite all of the positive reviews I read before making my purchase. The draping in front just looks frumpy. Since I still have my old suit I tried it on to compare and the old suit, despite being several years old and a bit stretched out, was much more flattering. So, if anyone at Land's End is reading these reviews and taking suggestions I have a few: A textured, matte fabric is so much more flattering for the majority of women. The back detail on the suit is wonderful; the straps stay up and it is so flattering to the back. A little more bustline support (underwire?) would be great here. That was my only wish for my original suit. And it bears repeating: Matte fabric! Thank you!

More bathing suits like this one, please!
This bathing suit is the perfect example of why Lands' End needs to offer different cup sizes in all women's bathing suits, in all the different lengths available (petite, regular, and long). This is the 5th suit I've ordered and tried to make work this season. I admit, I am built weird, but I cannot be the only one. My waist is a size 8. My hips are a 10, and my bust is somewhere between a 12-14. So, when I ordered the 12, it fit only in the bust, and was baggy everywhere else. The 10 fit ok in the body, but left my chest flat and oozing out the sides--very uncomfortable. I tried 3 different styles of LE suits before this one. (one of the suits I tried, the Greecian, comes in different cup sizes, but only in regular size, not long. I'm short, but I find the long size option to be by far the most comfortable) Upon returning the 4th suit I'd ordered to my local LE Sears, I found this Tunic style bathing suit on the rack, in a 10. I tried it on, and it was the first one that fit comfortably, although there was still some oozing out in the bust area, and it was too big in the body to truly give a full slimming effect (it wasn't tight enough) I quickly looked up the suit using my smartphone, to see all the different fit options, and saw that this one actually comes with different sized cups, in different lengths ! Eureka!!! So, I came home and ordered a size 8, long, with a D-cup, and held my breath and crossed my fingers that this one would actually work, since my beach vacation is quickly approaching. It came, I tried it on, and WOW! It actually fits! It's comfortable! It's flattering! Best of all, NO OOZING! Why can't all these options be available in all the swimwear styles? Not everyone is built in "cookie-cutter" fashion! Can you please make these options at least offered more widely in your swimwear collection?
