I’ve long been a fan of Lands’ End and their swimsuits for women, they always have something for everyone – which I love and appreciate! They take into account that every woman has a different shape and size, and that we all want to feel beautiful and confident in a swimsuit.

I want to take about Lands’ End Swimsuit Finder because I really do think it’s just an exceptional tool for women looking to find the perfect swimsuit!

Lands’ End takes into account 5 factors:
1. Style
2. Body Shape
3. Size
4. Control
5. Coverage

I’m going to walk you through my personal experience with finding my swimsuit, which I’m BEYOND OBSESSED with… literally! I love it and want to order another one just like it in another color!

I’m all about one-piece swimsuits right now. With 5 kids, I need to be on my toes and running fast so I can keep up with them. A one-piece just works best for me right now. Not to mention, I have a small hernia in my abdomen, so I’m VERY conscious about wearing a 2-piece until I get it corrected.

Right away I searched for the one-piece style.

As far as my body shape, I have an hourglass figure… so this was easy to target right away.

I inputted in all my sizes, and as I’m inputting in the specifics of my search – my choices of swimsuits is narrowing down, too from Lands’ End. I love this because it’s helping me really target the best options for my body.

I’m not concerned with control, so I opted for one without it.

As far as top coverage, I don’t have a preference.

18 results show up for me and I IMMEDIATELY stopped in my tracks over this one…

PERFECTION! Women’s Smocked One Piece Swimsuit is EVERYTHING!

Fabric is from Jersey Lomellina®, a world-renowned Italian mill
Plunging V neckline creates dramatic allure
Ties at the neck
Smocking adds eye-catching texture
Bra is lined (no cups or underwire)
Cut higher at the leg and in back
Fabric provides UPF 50 sun protection

It’s the perfect suit for me for the summer. I can be on my boat. I can be on the beach. I can be at the pool. I feel comfortable and confident and (dare I say it!) sexy, too! I just am in love with this option!

Check it out! And I NEVER post photos of me in a swimsuit, so this is how you know I really love it and feel comfortable in it!! And let me reiterate to be kind because these are unfiltered… this 39 year old mama of 5 is showing it all!

    I’m so glad I read your post this morning. I just bought a suit yesterday and will call today and buy another one!

    This is great! I love the guide for picking the right suit for your body shape. Also, how the heck did you have 5 kids? I don’t believe it! LOL

    Holy awesome swimsuit, Batman! I have to head over to Land’s End. I love that they help you pick the suit that’s right for you.

    I could definitely use a guy like this. I have bought swimsuits many many times and usually I don’t like the way I look in them. I would love something like this to teach me what my body style is so I get the correct bathing suit to myself.

    I LOVE this article. You totally laid it all out there and show people how to pick out a swimsuit (which less face it swimsuit shopping is an awful thing unless you are a supermodel). You made an excellent swimsuit choice and you look amazing in the swimsuit you chose!

    Love the cut on your swimsuit. I’ve been wondering what kind of suit is best for my body type. Totally going to see if I can find one that works.

    You are mega fit so that suit complements you. I am not sure I could rock one as seamlessly as you!

    Thanks for posting this! I haven’t bought a new suit in years and you inspired me. The swimsuit finder made it easy and the free shipping and 50 percent off were just too enticing to refuse.

    I need to get a new suit for summer. This looks like a great way to shop for one. I will have to check it out.

    That’s a really nice swimsuit. I actually really like it! Looks great on you too.

  14. 5.23.17

    That is a cool way to pick your swimsuit. I would be scared that that the suit would not fit when it arrived, though. I don’t really like buying clothes online for that purpose. But, if it works, then that is great!

  15. 5.24.17

    This is awesome! You look great in that swimsuit! Would love to try it for me too! 😀 Thanks for sharing this!

    Swimsuits are ABSOLUTELY an investment and worth paying what you need to get the best suit for your body. I had totally forgot about Land’s End but I am so excited to shop there! You look amazing in yours!!

  19. 5.24.17

    I like the suit…simple but very stylish. I have always been happy with Land’s End clothes. They were the only place I bought my son’s jeans for years!
