Women's SwimMates Dot Halter Bikini Top
My first bikini in a long time
The print and quality of this top are fantastic, and I'd call it just the right amount of coverage for a bikini-phobe. However, the fit is a tad strange. I have a small cup size, so I ordered the 34B, and it was still too big. Not so big that I won't wear it or will return it, but enough that I do a little bit of adjusting throughout my day. I did try a smaller size, but the cup seemed to be the same; just the band was different. The band adjusts very well and it is quite comfortable...no moving around or spilling out! But, as other reviewers have mentioned, this top could really use adjustable top straps. If I could take in the halter 1/2 to 1 inch, I think it would lay perfectly. Still, it's cute and comfortable, including in the water, and I'll definitely keep it!

Love the print and options!
I got this along with a bikini bottom, both in navy polka dot and the cami in the floral. I LOVE it! I wear a 34C but got the top in a 34B/36A and it fits well. I have three children and would never think of wearing a two piece...but this almost has me considering it. I was hesitant to wear two tops, thinking it would look bulky, but it is very flattering. It gives you the support of a bra with a typical tankini look.

Excellent quality but needs more attention to straps
Excellent quality as with all Lands End swimsuits I have purchased. I bought this for my 14 year old daughter and really hoped it had fit better. The back strap is adjustable but not the top straps by the neck. Tried a smaller cup size than what she normally wears but same issue with straps. I had to return.

This suit fits me perfectly! It is sexy without being too revealing. It ran true to size for me. I am a size 2/4 in clothing and am a 32D. Haven't worn in the water yet but I'm sure it is great quality. I have three Lands End swimsuits from three years ago that are still in good shape.

Flat as a pancake
I really wanted to like this top, but it just work. Even though I ordered my usual bra size, while it "fit", it totally flattened me out and the cups looked ridiculously huge and triangular on my small, 36A check. Definitely not for those of us with smaller "girls".

Alas, didn't work for me
I ordered by my bra size (36C) and even though the range is 36C-38B, this top is far too small. It fits fine around my torso, but the cup material doesn't cover enough of my breasts and, worst of all, the joining part between the cups sits about an inch out from my skin. There is no way to adjust the halter strap.
It would be a very nice top if it fit, so I am disappointed.

Swimmates polka dot bikini top is great!!
I just bought this top in the 40C/42B, my actual bra size. I love it with the flounce mini swim mini in solid black and covered by the coral/peach polka dot cami cover up. It's supportive, comfortable, flattering, youthful, cute, fits well, and is nice and low cut as I like with my small bust. And guess what? I'm 65, wear an 18 and still look good in this suit combination. I'll only wear it with the cami over it of course . The cami is truly a great invention -- best thing since you invented the Tankini years ago. More colors, more dots, more florals, please. The mix and match age is with us and it's great! Keep it up LE. Good work. Yay.

Great fit, very flattering
I ordered the same size as my bra size and it was perfect. It's very adjustable so that helps. It's also a very flattering look so in my book it hits the two most important marks: cute and comfortable. I will say that I am a 34B/36A so it's easy to find this top supportive. I bought the polka dot bikini and the cami which I also love. I wanted a bikini but I wanted to feel comfortable chasing after my kids and the cami will help in that regard. I have tried SO many bikinis that I have returned and this is the first I am keeping!
