Women's AquaTerra Tropical Underwire Tankini Top
I felt that the halter top ran big. It was not supportive enough for my size (42DD). Also, was not flattering.
I feel that the halter top style swimsuit top is not a good pick for someone with larger breasts. I wear a 42DD and find the halter top not supportive, even if you tried to tie the knot tight at the top.

I was skeptical but hoping this top would work. I wear a 34D - DD and read the reviews for this one and ordered the 8 with the D cup. Fabulous! Covers me in all the right places and is long enough also. Love this top! Modest yet still sexy.

Underwire cups don't fit
The regular top seems cut for a person with a broad chest but rather flat bosom. The cups are shallow(A cup?), but the underwires seem very wide and I can't get them to sit where they belong so the support I was hoping for is not there. It comes with removable "falsies" that seem to shift around a bit. I might keep this since it fits better than the other 2 I tried. But I am wondering where the suits for the person with a B/C cup.

Major sizing problems for large cup sizes
This suit was a disappointment due to sizing and design issues. The band was too large and loose, and offered no support. This leaves the weight of large 'girls' on the halter strap alone. Not only is this uncomfortable for the girls to be crushed together in the hammock of the strap, but it's painful on the neck. With the girls held front and center, there is quite a bit of visible cleavage, to the point of being unflattering.
This is despite ordering my normal size according to the charts. This suit doesn't fit comparably to other Lands End suits I have in the same size. I've even had suits in the wrong size fit better than this.
My advice, especially for larger cup sizes, is to down size the suit/band size and up size the cup size. This suit might work fine for the standard cup size, but halter styles for large cup sizes are a difficult combination to implement. I still recommend it, with major caveats for some sizes.

Best tankini top!
I am 5'7" and 150 lbs. I am a 36DD--I ordered a size 8 DDD and it is great. Very flattering. The underwire helps to support and the V-neck and halter adds the look of length and is slimming. I am very happy.

This top offers no support. Hook and loop closure in back is useless because it is not snug, Tied staps are very uncomfortable on the back of the neck. Fit looks terrible. I'm not sure if this suit would work for anybody.

For a large breasted woman, this top is much more revealing than I thought it was going to be. Also, the halter tie is tough when large breasts are involved. However, for laying in the sun it will work and I like the pattern because I can mix and match bottoms. Overall this is a body type issue NOT an issue with the top.

This would not have been my first choice in style, but it had the right size combos and it actually fit according to the measurements that Lands End uses. The fabric is cute. The underwires are a bit more prominent that I would have liked, but it seems to be the style now. Four boats because actually fits and is not horrifically ugly.
