Striped bandeau one piece swim suit
Great Bra support and Ruching Very Slimming!
fabulous style. love what the bra does for the girls. LB is very smart to make the suits with full bra support. the ruched sides are also very flattering for my apple shape.
The only reason this gets 4 stars instead of five is that the striped fabric is sewn in a curved pattern under the bust and really emphasized my apple tummy. (the pregnant look) :( I would totally get this in a solid color or other print!

Not a flattering pattern!
I am very disappointed at the pattern of this suit- the stripes are NOT flattering at all. The horizontal striping made me look wider and the diagonal stripes across the cups made my top look smaller, thus giving me a very disproportional look. I am returning it right away.
I ordered a size up based on other reviews and that is correct, although the cup sizes are on the smaller size. I am a DD and it was a little snug. The fit was good though elsewhere, it was just the pattern that did not work.

I saw this on display at my local Lane Bryant. It immediately caught my eye and I had to try it on. I tried on a few different sizes and picked the one that fit the best, which was a size up from my normal dress size. I am usually pretty self conscious about wearing a swimsuit, but I absolutely loved the way this looked on me! It is very slimming and takes attention away from my problem areas. It also has a very retro look to it, which I adore. As much as I loved it, I never could have brought myself to pay the regular price for it (entirely too expensive for something to wear in the water, no matter how good it looks) but as luck would have it, my store is moving to a new location and liquidating their inventory. I got this gorgeous suit for an absolute steal! I can't wait to wear it on an upcoming trip , which I wasn't even planning on packing swimwear for originally.
