Women's AquaTerra Sweetheart Aqua Floral Bikini Top
Not very flattering
This looks very cute in the picture. But it was difficult to even try on, because of the way it's made. You can't un-do straps to make it easy to put on. Overall not flattering when on. Probably better on small-chested person.

Nice fit around rib section and cups.
Straps were a all the way for me so I could have used another 1/2 -3/4 in adjustment.

heavy duty top
fit is okay. i probably should have ordered a size larger. I got the 6 because that is what my measurements indicated. I am a 34a very small on top but would have ordered the 8 if i were to get this style again. It holds you in and is quite sturdy. Maybe a little bit too stiff ( kind of like a wet suit) for regular sun bathing. But I purchased it for water sports and hot yoga so it stands up to that intensity. I do like the look. athletic but still attractive.

Favorite suit ever!
I am 43 yrs old and a mother to a 4 yr old! Over the past 4 mos I have lost 25lbs and have joined Crossfit. I was looking for a sporty style and could not fine one I liked until now. I have purchased many Lands End bathing suits but haven't worn a two piece in years! I am in love with this suit and plan to get it in another color (I also bought in black). I bought a size 8 and it fits perfectly. It is very appealing an I received a lot of compliments on it. I feel 20 yrs younger w/ my new shape but wanted to look my age - yet fun, sporty and sexy to.

Great Swim Top/Sports Bra
I like to buy sports-oriented swim tops to wear as sports bras, and this one is comfortable and attractive, a nigh-perfect fit. (No bra is a perfect fit. At least not for this picky person.;)) It's snug enough to hold you without being so snug it smashes you flat. I love the red and blue print.

Great suit! Best of both worlds -- attractive fit, but no fear that it would slip!
I absolutely love this bathing suit! I am 36 year old with three children under the age of 6. I am in good shape, but can never find a good suit for the summer. When I shop in stores, everything is a skimpy bikini, a poor fitting tankini set, or a matronly one-piece. I wanted something attractive and fun, but also something that would stay secure when I had three little ones hanging on me in the pool. This suit is perfect. I have a C-cup and although the top fits slightly like a sports bra, it is comfortable, has a cool racer back, AND gives the illusion of the bikini with the security of stretch material across the middle of the chest. Plus, the ability to buy different size top & bottom allows women to meet the different sizes of their top and bottom. I found the sizes true to size. I bought a 4 for the top and a 2 & 4 for the bottom to compare. Both fit great, but my husband preferred the 2 (he thought the 4 had too much material on the behind). I like the colors too. I will always shop here first in the future!

Great Bathing Suit but odd size.
I love the style and the quality of this top but the sizing is a bit tricky. I wear a 34 C bra normally, and my bust measurement is 38 inches. I ordered a size 6 and it fit perfect in the cup area but not in the under bust area. If the waistband had been an inch to an inch and a half shorter I would have fit into it perfectly. I thought of taking it in, but the strap in the back was sewn together so well that there was no way for me to take in the back without damaging the fabric. So I sent it back and ordered a size 4. The size four fits in the waist band better but it still gaps a bit. If I look down my bust area I can see a slight gap in-between the fabric and my skin. I wish Lands End would have created a way to adjust this back measurement, but overall it is not a problem. This is a great top and it is made excellently and will last a long time.

The only reason for the 'good' rating is the sizing. I ordered a 4 and I am a 34 C (or large B)... the strap around by bust is tight... which is good for staying on, but I just hope it doesn't get uncomfortable. I love the strap adjustment and the colors are awesome! Nice coverage and very well lined. I didn't realize, but the cups have a seam down the middle... doesn't bother me, but thought you might want to know.

For active beachgoers and poolgoers
What I like about this suit:
1. It fits true to size. I am 5'9", size 6, with a B/C cup. The suit fits perfectly.
2. It's attractive. I bought the blue/red color combo which is vivid and fun.
3. It stays put. We live near the beach, and one of my main concerns about going in the ocean is losing my suit to the waves. This suit isn't going anywhere! Other reviewers mentioned that the suit flattens the bust area, and this is true. If your goal is to create cleavage, this isn't the suit for you. If your goal is to have an athletic and attractive suit, this one works! In this pretty bathing suit I'd feel comfortable swimming laps at my local pool, racing into the water at the beach, playing volleyball, or just lounging pool or beachside.
