Women's Tunic One Piece Slender Suit
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?

Good fit and color
Sized perfectly and styling does make you look slimmer. Many complements from my water aerobics friends. Unhappy that it was on sale a week after I ordered it though. Haven't had it long enough to comment on the quality for surviving chlorinated pools.

This swimsuit is comfortable through shoulder straps and very stunning
Very slimming appearance with a comfortable fit through the back straps and abdominal area. Easy to swim and relax wearing this swimsuit.

I was worried about this suit being too old for me (I'm 36), but followed a previous reviewer who said the style looked "timeless." She's right. My daughter (5) and husband were both very impressed by the suit, and I've gotten a lot of compliments. When I first tried it on, I was wishing it were a bit more high cut in the leg, but it is actually flattering anyway with the little skirt and more importantly, It stays in place while I play with my children.
It was tight to put on (I guess the consequence of a one-piece) but not uncomfortable to wear. The material is thick and good quality. The slight padding in the top stays in place. The tummy control is just what I needed after the birth of my youngest.
I'm 5'5 and 135 lbs and a 36D, and the 6 with the D cup fits perfectly.

Post partum miracle suit
I am 9mo post partum and this suit took my 20lbs of baby weight and made it five,tops. Beautiful color and it's nice to have a suit that fits my 5'10" frame. Yes,the breast cups bunch up a little and yes,the leg holes feel a bit odd. But overall, I feel beautiful and rather thin in this suit. The little imperfections are worth it to me.

Very oddly made, a disappointment
I was looking forward to receiving this suit after looking at photos and reading reviews. Alas, the suit fit very oddly, rather like an ill-fitting synthetic dress. The top was lumpy and didn't sit right, the bottom sagged and was rather shapeless, as though it had been stretched out of shape even before the first wear. A disappointment. I had ordered a different style a couple of years ago and it was wonderful. Hard to believe that this was ordered from the same company. Definitely going back.

Comfortable and Figure Flattering Suit!
I am a very curvy girl with a size 38DD chest and not too much junk in the trunk. This suit is an amazing fit and very comfortable. Figure flattering and easy to where whether you are just lounging by the pool, chasing kids around at a water park or enjoying slides and river rapids in the Bahamas yourself! Ordered 3 other suits with this suit and the return/refund process through Lands End was very user friendly and very prompt on refunding my Credit Card once returned.

Found the holy grail of swimsuits
I'm actually giddy over this suit. I am a size 34-DDD and a 10/12. The size 10 in this suit (regular cup! Not a D+ cup) fit me perfectly. I actually started out with a 14-DDD and it was hilarious it was so big on me. I normally have to size up in swimsuits, especially ones that are slimming but not in this one. I have an hourglass shape and this is the first suit I've owned that keeps my top and bottom completely secure. Usually swimsuits cut my butt in half, leaving the rest of me to hang out. This one completely covers my rear and I feel like I could go jogging and my chest wouldn't go anywhere. I feel like I'm too young (34) to wear a skirted swimsuit but the coverage is actually pretty nice and the whole thing has a retro feel so I don't mind it too much. There is a bit of a shine to the fabric and the only thing that would have made it better is if they offered it in a polka-dot. My sunscreen rubs off all over my suit which really annoys me but I'll try spray sunscreen next time and see if that's better. I am really happy with my purchase.
