Women's Petite Paisley Tunic One Piece Slender Suit
I love the way I look in this suit!!!
Hey, I'm 63 yrs. old and my bikini days are long past. This swimsuit looks great on me. I knew the minute I put it on that it was a good choice. My waist is back and it looks stylish...not like an "old lady" suit at all. The print is snazzy and it is well constructed. It seems to be true to size for me. I do not have an over abundant top, and the cups fit fine. Even though the suit is a slender suit, it isn't hard to get on and certainly doesn't feel constricting. All in all, I am delighted to find this suit because I live on the lake in the summer months,

not good if you have hand arthritis
The style, material and fit (petite 8 for 5'4" and 120 lbs) are fine. However, I would suggest some modification in the strap design. It's difficult to hook the straps in the back of my neck since I have mild arthritis in my left hand. Can you change it to the simple front and back straps?I have to return it just for this simple design flaw. What a shame!

This swimsuit fits perfectly.
I usually wear a size small in Lands End but ordered a size 8. It fits perfectly and is very comfortable. The style is flattering and the pattern stylish.

I have renewed my vow to be a better swimmer and this is the suit getting me there.
This is a great suit. I've gotten so many compliments on it. Once I'm in it, everything falls into place exactly where it should be. With one exception, the bottom. I had to have it taken in as my bottom wasn't what it once was, but I do think there was perhaps an over- allowance. Easily fixed. It is holding up very well in a highly chlorinated pool, so I make sure it gets soaked thoroughly after use. I would love another suit just like this with maybe your purple paisley pattern....pattern being the important word.

Perfect Fit and coverage
This is my third suit in this style. My other two suits are in solid colours so I was delighted to see one with a pattern. I used the sizing chart and it was accurate. At 55+ my bikini days have also long gone and I feel more comfortable in a suit that offers coverage, hides flaws and is comfortable. This suit offers it all. I have had compliments on this suit last year while vacationing in the Caribbean, therefore it is a winner for me.
I see it is either made in the USA or imported. The tag in my suit said it was made in Canada from US material. As a Canadian I'm proud of the workmanship

I was a little disappointed.
I bought this same suit (or that year's version of it) two years ago. I have worn it and worn it and worn it. It's finally beginning to show the effects of chlorine, so I ordered a new suit. The old suit fit perfectly the first time I put it on and every time since. The new one feels a bit skimpier. I'm not sure that it's the same quality material or the same size allowance.

Fits & covers well
I am petit in height but not so in the hips. This swimsuit does a good job of covering up the tummy and hip areas but doesn't make me look like a grandma. I really like it.

My favorite suit
I usually have 4 of this style at one time. My older suits have worn out one by one over the years. I was down to one in eggplant color and needed to replenish my supply. Since I live in Florida and wear a swim suit every day, paying full price for these suits is not possible. I wait for the sales and then stock up. I am under 5' tall and weigh 117lbs. The size 8 fits me well and is flattering. It covers some of my body flaws so that I am not too uncomfortable with the way I look. I really wish LandsEnd would make this style with a bandeau top. Then this swim suit would be perfect! I would also LOVE to see their swim suits in more vivid and colorful prints instead of some of the frumpy materials they are using now.

High quality, beautifully flatters
I'm definitely keeping this suit, because it is flattering, even on my plus size body. I have another I bought three plus years ago, and still love it! I must agree with another reviewer that this suit has gotten short in the body, though. It could make the difference in a longer bodied woman, and many plus sized women are tall.

Even better in person - perfect for an hourglass shape.
This suit has much more of a "pin-up" look in person than it appears to online. I am difficult to fit in swimsuits - busty (32DD or 30DDD) with ample hips, and I'm short-waisted. Usually a one piece that covers my chest is much too long or too wide. This suit is perfect. It shows just enough cleavage on a bustier gal without everything spilling out. The elastic around the thighs is a LITTLE bit tight, but this is usually the case for me, and it's not so tight as to be uncomfortable. On me, the skirt comes down just low enough to give a true hourglass shape instead of a bulgy thigh shape. Love it. I'm 5'6" and a 4-6 in street clothes and an 8 fits perfectly.
