Women's Plus Size Lela Beach V-neck One Piece Swimsuit with Tummy Control
This suit was too large on top and too small on bottom. It was returned.

Most flattering LE suit ever!
Buy this suit! The photo does not do this suit justice. At 5'4" with hourglass figure and D bust, ordered this in 20w. I always order a size up with swimsuits. The teal color is beautiful, the side shirring is not displayed here as it looks, because not only does it fit and flatter, it is modest and a true classic suit. The sash is also shirred at the sides, and you can wrap and tie it front or back, which compliments the side bust shirring, and further enhances a small waistline. Everything is covered, and the v-neck is just right, no cleavage and no "squishing." It does trim your tummy, and is easy to get in and out of. Nice material, and feels and looks substantial, not cheap. Out of 6 LE swimsuits I ordered to try on for the summer, I was stunned at the beauty and fit of this suit on sale. All other suits with 5-star ratings were nowhere near as flattering as this one, and will be returned. If you are a curvy lady, this just might be the suit you are looking for. The teal color is also a perfect match with the new mosaic cover-up tunic. Out of many, many LE suits I have worn over the years, this may be the most beautiful and flattering one yet. Thank you, LE, and please do not discontinue this style!

Beautiful classy suit, loved the teal!
I needed a swimsuit quickly for a January cruise which my husband sprang on me as a Christmas surprise! First time I've ever ordered a swimsuit sight unseen and it was clearly a winner. Looking at the size charts, I debated between the regular Lela women's size 18 and the plus size Lela in 16W. Since the plus size offered the tummy control, that was the suit I ordered. Very happy with the style, very flattering cut. Nice support everywhere it is needed. I ordered the Charlotte teal, so pretty. After washing, I also noted that it was fairly quick to dry considering the layers of fabric and spandex. With this purchase, I'm now looking forward to wearing a swimsuit again! Thanks, LE!
