Women's Beach Living Adjustable Scoopneck Tankini Top
I would love the suit except for the removeable cups
This would be a great suit. I got my top in navy and it fits great. The main downside is that the cups are removable and won't stay in place. They are constantly shifting around or folding over making the front look lumpy. While the suit has a good fit to my body, I will not buy another suit from Lands End with removable cups. I have two in this style and it just causes too much frustration, and they aren't easy to reposition. You can't really remove them because then there is an obvious lack of coverage.

Very thin with absolutely no lining.
Really liked the style of this...Reveals just enough without feeling too flashy, and not too modest. But where is the lining? It's super thin, so EVERY flaw shows. it's nearly see-through thin. Your best bet is to buy it a little loose, so it doesn't cling to your body. I'm 5'7, size 8, average size, but I look much bigger in this top. I tried on a different tankini, and immediately looked 10lbs thinner than this one. For the price, LE could have put a liner in it!

The solid color shows every bump. The cup lining needs to be sewn in to avoid shifting.
Sizing seems accurate. Im a 36DDD and the 10DDD fit better than 12DDD. Adequate support. I'm a ddd, but not a plus size. I need a swim suit that covers the basics, supports, and doesn't push up or squash the bust line. This one is as close as I have found. Would like to see a strap that is 1-1/2" (not spaghetti strings. A back clasp would be great so you hold it all together and the straps only helps the fabric lie flat. I would love to see colors besides black and old lady large prints. The dots have been a nice addition. I Would love to see the swim skirt in the nylon that zip in more colors. I've had my nylon skirt 4+ years and love it still. Would love to see a bikini top built like a bra, so you have the support. I have ended up buying regular underwire bras and covering them with the cute tanks and swim shirts. The fabric is not intended for chlorine, but I love to be out by my pool and able to entertain without giving a show to my pool guests.

Swimsuits never fit right, this one does
Thank you Lands End for making a swimsuit that actually fits! As a well-endowed woman, swimsuit shopping is a nightmare. The fit is never right, and it is really hard to find suits with anything resembling enough support. This top is great. It fits beautifully. It's comfortable (even for all day wear). It's simple, but it looks great (I got it in black and wore it with bright colored bottoms). Everything stays where it is supposed to. It is all I could ask for in a swimsuit.

Love the fit!
This style of tankini is extremely adjustable and fit the best compared to the other styles. After trying on many tops, I decided I prefered the patterned print on the top over the solid color on the top as the patterns tend to hide more. I am 5' 4" and 120lbs and usually wear a size D cup, and the size 6 fit well. The size 4D looked nice once I had it on, but getting it on and off was quite the ordeal, so the 6 was the better option.

Great the first time but not as much after a few wearings.
This top fit very well the first time I wore it. It is one of the only suits that feels like it has enough support on the top. I wore it to a water park and didn't feel like I was going to fall out of it and there wasn't too much jiggling. I ordered it in an 8 DDD. After the first day though the underwire started to poke me and by the fourth day it was quite irritating on the side. I need to find a way to fix this part as the rest of the suit was great and really meets my needs.

Good fit and support.
It fit perfectly. It was just what I expected based on what I saw online.

Bra top clings to your body making for a more modest fit. Great material weight, and lightweight padding

I'm looking for another style
I have three adjustable scoop neck tankini tops, after a few months, the wires in the underwire started poking into my sides. The top gaps open a bit in the middle, even after tightening the shirring. The removable pads that line the cups are difficult to straighten out after washing. I avoid these tops when getting ready to go to the beach or pool.

Solid color shows all the flaws
The solid color of this top shows all the figure flaws. I also could not get a good fit, although I tried every possible size for my figure. The inserts in the bra were strange. They arrived bent and gave a funny shape to my bust.
