Women's Y-back Swimsuit
I bought this suit for my daughter... great coverage and fit. Unfortunately I ended up returning it because I could not find shorts that fit to wear over the suit. I went with an "aquatard/unitard" style suit with the bike style shorts built in.

Lasted 2 months!!
I bought this for lap swimming, three times a week on 10/14. Pool not heavily chlorinated, most of my suits last 4-6 months. Fit was great . But by first week of January, it is stretched out and the fabric is deteriorating. Not a good choice for athletics

Slimming design, very comfortable
I like this swimsuit but it is a little longer than others I have from Lands' End, not a lot. I got it in a 12 based on another suit which was too short/small. A 10 may have fit in this style, but this is fine for the price (got on sale.) I am 5'6.5" tall and about 160 lbs. Measurements are 38 30 40 and there is plenty of room for a larger person. There is no bra inside so you can expect to be flattened out considerably if that matters to you. The princess stitching is flattering though. I haven't worn it outdoors so don't know how fast it dries.

Not for me
The fit was very tight. I had to go a size up from what I normally wear, and honestly a size above that might have been even better. It was extremely hard to get on, as well, even in the larger size. I got it because everyone said it was great for swimming laps, which is what I wanted to do in it. However, as a younger lady, I found the cut very unflattering on me (my husband said it looked like an old-timey men's swimsuit on me). Back it went.

So far, a great suit!
I bought this suit to jump back into lap-swimming. I'm a curvy, small-frame gal of moderate height and weight (145 lbs.) and the Size 10 fits. The fabric is lightweight, stretchy, and air-dries quickly. VERY flattering front-seams, and covers all my lady-parts in style. Will amend this review only if the suit wears out too soon. So far, so good!

exactly what I wanted
I swim/ hot tub several times a week so I go through a lot of suits. It's so easy to order from Land's End because the suits always fit. The style descriptions are accurate and the quality is excellent.
I found this one on sale which was an added bonus!

Too much Stretch. Immediate Color Fade
I purchased this suit in June. Within the first week of wear, it stretched to the point of having to pull it up and readjust it so it didn't sag. Within a month, it lost most of it's color (from black to gray) except for the crack up the back (lovely) and the breasts (huh!). I'd purchased 3 of these suits in black and blue in the past 3 years and am still wearing them. After a year in each, the cup lining stretched, but they are still wearable - whereas, the one I bought in June is not.

Good tank suit
I've only worn this suit a couple of times, but it appears to be a great suit and for good price. It is light weight and dries quickly; it is lined in front but no additional structure. The racer back style holds straps securely in place. I chose green and it looks like a team color; but I like it. In addition to lap swims, I plan to use it under a wet suit for scuba diving.
