Let’s Talk Swimsuits *GIVEAWAY*

This contest is closed. The winning number is 55 — congratulations Gretchen! And thanks to Lands’ End for sponsoring such a generous giveaway!

It’s that time of year again — time for my annual swimsuit post. I have long been a fan of Lands’ End swimsuits. They are the perfect combination of quality and style, and I am a particular fan of their mix and match separates.

I’ve been wearing the same Lands’ End tankini for about five years. I absolutely love it. It’s from the faille line, and this is the only picture I can find of me wearing it, which I realize does next to nothing for showing you the suit, but I couldn’t resist the picture of 6-month-old R in her swimsuit and sunhat. JUST LOOK AT THOSE CHUBBY LEGS! Don’t you just want to nosh on them?


There are may debates among mothers — breastfeed vs bottlefeed; co-sleep vs crib; work vs stay at home; and I daresay, skirted swimsuit vs non-skirted swimsuit. Yes, I’ve read convincing arguments on both sides, but I firmly believe that there comes a time in every woman’s life when she should no longer bare her hind end for the world to see, and my time has DEFINITELY come.

Enter the Lands’ End Swim Mini.


I like the swim mini because it’s not frumpy like many skirted suits, and it comes in two lengths (I prefer the longer style.) And this year it also comes in a control version to help with that pesky belly bulge so many of us moms battle.

My suit is still in remarkably good shape, considering how much I’ve worn it the past few years. With a pool membership and 3 kids at home during summer vacation, I’m in the sun and chlorine ALL summer long. But I’m ready for something new, and I was particularly interested to try some of the newer features — namely the Trim Lines collection. I also love the fact that you can now order a suit in your specific bra size.

So one day last week I spent about 30 minutes on the Lands’ End website perusing swim suits and ordered 3 different styles to try.

I absolutely LOVE the new patterns this year. I had a hard time deciding which ones to order. As it turns out, my favorite pattern that I received is this Daylily Orange floral. Isn’t that just so summery and fun!?


But in the end I am keeping this suit because the top fit so well. It’s supportive and flattering and CUTE, and the Trim Lines Swim Mini with control lining is simply the best invention since the tankini was born.


My only complaint is that I could use about another inch in the waistband of the skirt — an inch in height. I find myself stretching it as high as I can so that it doesn’t create a bulge of skin at the top of the skirt. I know that I’m high-waisted, so perhaps it’s my body shape that is the problem, but it sure would be nice if it gave me another inch of material to work with.

The top comes down over the band to that horizontal seam that you see in the picture so there is plenty of overlap, which allows me to bend and stretch and pick up naughty children without exposing my midsection to the rest of the pool — a gift to everyone involved.

If money grew on trees, I would order this halter tunic swim top in that gorgeous Daylily Orange with a navy blue skirt, but unfortunately there are no money trees growing in my yard at the moment so I will be content with my one new Lands’ End suit and wear it joyfully.

WIN IT! After receiving my swimsuits in the mail, I emailed my contact at Lands’ End and asked if they would be interested in sponsoring a giveaway, and guess what!? They do! So one lucky Chic Critique reader will win a FREE Lands’ End swimsuit of her choice. Here’s how to win.

1) REQUIRED: Visit the swimsuit section at LandsEnd.com and look around. Leave a comment on this post telling me which suit you would choose if you win.

2) OPTIONAL: Tell your friends about this contest on Facebook, Twitter, your blog, or via email. Leave a 2nd comment telling me which you did. You can do more than one if you desire.

3) OPTIONAL: Give yourself a 3rd entry if you’re a subscriber to Chic Critique.

You MUST leave separate comments for each entry; it’s the only way I can count them. I will use a random integer generator to select the winner on Saturday, May 16th. Good luck!

  41. Cassidy says:

    Lands End Swinsuits are the best … I had a bikini for a long time, but after having my first baby this past fall, I need a tankini to cover up this lingering bump!!
    I would go for the beach living island Ikat print v-neck halter in black with matching black beach living solid side tie bottoms. Fabulous!

  42. I love skirt bathing suits! Black with the criss cross!
    My suit just disolved at the local pool
    will tweet too!

  43. The Land’s End suits are terrific.! I love the Paradise Floral swim top and the tummy control swim shorts. Thank you for a fun giveaway.

  44. Okay. I POSTED about wanting the daylily suit a while back and at least FIVE friends bought it. NOT FAIR!!! It doesn’t have an underwire so that was a turn off for me, but it IS my favorite fabric. LOVE.

    I’m still loving my one I bought last year and it actually will be fine for a while since it’s got plenty of fabric for a belly from the adjustable tunic style.

  45. And also? Subscribe. And contribute: that should be extra credit.

  46. OK – I’d do the swim mini with the kaleidoscope v-neck top. Love the colors!

  47. And I’m a subscriber.

  48. And I tweeted about it!

    Plus I’m spending two weeks in FL this summer, so I could use a great suit. Does that count for any extra entries? ๐Ÿ˜‰

  49. I have only heard of this company and never looked at what they have. Wow, I’m impressed that they have so much to offer a lady,especially one with a post baby compromising figure. Tunics are good for me and halters do me the best justice. I liked the ones already picked on this page & after going to the companys site,I still feel they would flatter me best through all the great options. Either the womens solid or beach paradise adjustable halter tunic swim top and the trim lines swim mini with control lining would be a saving grace to my summer attire.Thanks for the chance to win this! Also,letting me in on this secret in swim wear:)

  50. I definitely need a new swimsuit! There are quite a few that look good – I like the shorts and batik squares top. Thanks!

  51. Megan (mommyesquire) says:

    I love Lands End suits. I have the swim mini and a regular bottom. I do prefer the regular bottom over the swim mini for now but that might change this summer. I love their halter tops! My favorite pattern is the kaleidoscope in daylilly orange/seaglass because I’m really obsessed with orange right now…

  54. Camille Platt says:

    I’m about to have my first baby, so I’d go with the Beach Living Ikat Print Adjustable Halter Tunic. I can’t do a skirt though – I’ve always felt like skirts above the knee make my knees look chubby! I’d do a traditional bottom.

  55. I love these swimsuits. I love the Daylily Orange Floral shown, but I also love the Kaleidoscope pattern. I think I’d have to go for the Tummy Control SwimMini (ugh, five kids later!)

  56. I subscribe to Chic Crique

  57. I posted this contest on my blog!

  58. I love Lands Ends suits! They are the best!!!!

  59. I love all the Lands Ends designs this year, too. I would choose the Swim mini in deep pink along with the Beach Living Kaleidoscope Scoopneck Tie back swim top in seaglass green and deep pink. Thanks!

  68. Grecian V-neck Slender Swimsuit. I need all the help I can get. LOL

  69. I would choose the Women’s Regular Beach Living Island Ikat Print V-neck Halter Swim Top in brown and the side tie bottoms.

    I LOVE the Women’s Regular All-over Control Slender Tunic Swimsuit .. I would probably get it in black…

  71. I put it on my blog.

  75. I love the Beach living kleidoscope swim top in green/deep pink with the beach living solid swim mini in deep pink!

  76. Dominika White says:

    I love Land’s End swimsuits. I own a tankini with swim skirt and a simple black 1 piece that have lasted for several years now. I love the new styles though. If I had to choose I think I would go for the Women’s Regular All-over Control Solid Grecian V-neck Slender Swimsuit. Brown is my new fave for sure.

  77. Shannon Boyer says:

    Women’s Plus Size TrimLine Separates Solid SwimMiniโ„ข in Black with the Women’s Beach Living Paradise Floral Tie Back Scoopneck Swim Top in Sea Glass Green

  78. I like the Beach Living Paradise floral in Daylily Orange Scoop neck top, and matching bikini bottom.

  79. I posted on facebook!

  80. Women’s Regular Beach Living Ikat Print Adjustable Halter Tunic Swim Top in bluebell print with a Women’s Regular Beach Living Tummy Control SwimMiniโ„ข in bluebell

  81. I e-mailed all my friends!

  82. I just subscribed! Looking forward to more chic-ness!

  83. I got my first Land’s End suit about 4 years ago and it’s still perfectly fine – but every time I get a new catalog I kinda wish mine was wearing out.
    However, if I win one…..I will have a new suit and a clear conscience.

    I love the tankini with the tummy control – and it would be hard to choose just one suit, but I think I’d get the orange one with the polka dots. Too cute!

    Oh…..and I also love the fact that you can return the suits to Sears if they don’t fit. When I got my teen-age daughter’s suit this year, I ordered three different ones, picked the one she liked best, then took the other two back to Sears. no return shipping!

  84. I would get the Women’s Regular All-over Control Solid Grecian V-neck Slender Swimsuit in Dark Teal Blue! Gorgeous!

  85. I would love one of these suits. I would choose the Women’s Regular Beach Living Chainlink Double Strap Swim Top with the black Trim Lines Swim Mini with control lining. Super cute and would make me feel good this summer after baby come this spring.

  86. I like the Women’s All-over Control Hi-neck Slender Swimsuit best.

  87. I had so much fun on the Lands End website! I discovered the virtual model feature and enjoyed playing around trying different swim suits on my virtual model! My favorite swimsuit for my body type is the “all-over control slender tunic swimsuit” in berry! This one was the most “forgiving” and I would love to win it!!!

  88. I just subscribed!

  89. Rebekah Burch says:

    I have always loved the Lands End swim line. I don’t think I’ve had any other type of suit since I was in high school. I love the new Aqua Terra line because I love to SCUBA dive and do other water sports. Also the Capri line has such pretty patterns.

  90. Melissa McNally says:

    I love the Solid Ruffle TrimLine top in Black and Beach Living Tummy Control Swim Bottom. The top has great rouching which is perfect for disquising a post preg belly!

  91. wow i would go with the original sport tankini. I love this with the shorts, as i have just come to the realization (in my mid thirties) that, well, that I happen to be a grown up!

  92. Oh, I’m so glad you called them! Hello! I’m a new reader, hope it’s okay if I try!

    I looked at the suits and love the Women’s Beach Living Kaleidescope Print Scoopneck Tieback top and a skirty bottom. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Man, that’s a mouthful! Oh, the color I like is Daylily Orange/Seaglass Green. Yum!

  93. Comment #2! I posted on my blog! Happy Summer!


  94. I hate picking out swimsuits. My last one was from Lands End as well, a tankini with shorts. I definitely LOVE the skirt look though. I may have to order one. If money grew on trees at our house, I’d order the All-over Control Halter Slender Swimsuit. Just what my figure needs!

  95. I love the 3 – piece colorful paisley tankini! Looks so bright and summery.

  96. Hey, I even subscribed to chic-critique! I can use a little (a LOT of) fashion advice. Srsly.

  97. Barbara says:

    Wow. The paradise floral top with a swim mini would be my first try – I never pick the right suit the first time, though. Of course, I haven’t bought a new suit in (?) years and now have two kids, so that luck may have changed!!!!!

  98. Barbara says:

    Just subscribed – love your blog!

  99. Mnayd Sadler says:

    I am still wearing the swimsuit from when I was preggo in 2005 and I had twins in 2007 so I need a new suit badly! I wanna win – I wanna win – I wanna win! I like the Women’s Beach Living Kaleidoscope Print V-neck Swim Top or the Women’s Beach Living Paradise Floral Tie Back Scoopneck Swim Top with the skirt or the shorts – too cute!

  100. OOOOH! The Penelope Print Shirred Front Suit for me………it has a neat print and it has a full-body lift to boot! I could sure use the lift! thanks!

  101. I LOVE the Women’s Regular All-over Control Slender Tunic Swimsuit in rich brown…so pretty and vintage looking.

  107. I LOVE Land’s End. I recently purchased one of their swim tops, and it is AMAZING. If I won, would go for the Women’s Beach Living Solid Adjustable Bandeau Tunic Swim Top in navy and the Swim Mini.

  108. Christine Russell says:

    I am really in love with the Women’s Regular Beach Living Kaleidoscope Tie Back Scoopneck Swim Top in the daylily orange/sea green. I think I would coordinate it with the Rich brown color for the bottom, but I am having a hard time determining which skirt. I played around with the vitual model feature — really cool– and my model is wearing the Women’s Regular Beach Living Wide Waistband Mini SwimMiniโ„ข at the moment, so that would definitely be an option. ๐Ÿ™‚

  114. I love the 3 piece Colorful Paisley Tankini found on page 2!! Never had one of these styles but would love to try one.

  115. Michelle says:

    If I were to win (crossing my fingers) I would choose “Women’s Regular All-over Control Solid Grecian V-neck Slender Swimsuit” in Blackberry. I love the tankinis but they just never fit me right. I have seen this style in a few other places this year and I think it would work best for my crazy sized body!

  126. I just bought a Lands End swimsuit (the first new one I’ve had in five years!), and I LOVE it … But with 15-month-old twin boys, I think I will be spending a lot of time in the pool this summer and could use a second suit! My choice would be Beach Living Kaleidoscope Print (orange and green) V-neck Swim Top and Supplex Swim-Mini (green).

  127. I just posted your link on facebook.

  128. Kristen says:

    I love the All Over Control Colorblock Halter Suit–it looks like it would give me some tummy control and still look sexy.

    i’d pick the Women’s Beach Living Solid Adjustable Tunic Swim Top and mini in black.

    I usually go for a halter bikini top, but I’m pregnant and think a tankini will be a better choice for me this summer! I really like the Beach Living Paradise Floral Tie Back Scoopneck Swim Top and matching bikini bottoms.

  138. Just became a subscriber…love your site!

  139. I like the Swim Shape Separates batik pattern tankini top and the Swim Mini from the same line.

    I like the shirred jersey mini for a bottom. Not sure which top I like best.

  141. Lisa Stormont says:

    I love the beach living kaleidoscope bikini top and tummy control bottoms.

  142. I love the Grecian v-neck slender swimsuit! It comes in bigger bra sizes, which is great, too — not many swimsuits do these days!

  143. LE rocks. I like the swim shorts and the kaleidoscope swim top.

  144. I love the Cross back tankini in lemon with a control faile mini skirt in black.

  145. I’d get the Lands’ End Women’s All-over Control Solid Grecian V-neck Slender Swimsuit in Dark Teal Blue.

  151. I put your link on my site. Love the suits.

  152. oh, my favorite is the womens capri coral reef bandeau halter swimtup, with the trimline solid swim mini.

  153. Sheila Penrod says:

    I like the beach living tummy control swim shorts and the womens solid faille cross-back tankini top. I like the dark navy color. The tankini’s are great for me because I am tall and I need longer suits, but yet the tankini’s cover everthing that should be covered.

  154. I love, love, love Lands End suits! I have a plain pink tankini set with a swim mini that I have worn for years! I love all the new prints and would like to add a printed piece to the suit I already have for a change!

  155. I subscribed!

  163. Women’s Solid Ruffle TrimLine Separates Tankini Swim Top in PINK !

  164. Great Give-away!
    I like the Women’s Regular Beach Living Island Dots Print V-neck Halter Swim Top & Mini

  165. Mandy Sverduk says:

    I am a subscriber.

  166. Does a subscription via rssfeed count ? If so I’m subbed via yahoo.

  167. I love the minimizer designs, the simple tank in red is awesome!!

  168. I need a swim mini in the worst way. To be practical I’d need to choose a navy swim mini that would go with my current suit as well. The daylily top (scoopneck for me) is beautiful but I think it looks better with the Bluebell mini. What to do, what to do? (If I win, I’d love to decide!)

  169. I haven’t worn swimwear separates since an ill-fated bikini adventure in high school (many years ago). So, I’m a little surprised to say that I would choose the Beach Living Solid V-Neck Top and the Beach Living Tummy Control Mini, both in black. The virtual model tool is really cool! It gives me a pretty good idea of what the suit will look like on me.

  170. I have spent so many minutes looking and trying to narrow my choices. What a job!! I love the Living Solid Bikini Bottom (True Navy) and the Living Dot Print V-Neck Halter Top (True Navy/White). Now if I could win…

  171. I have a really hard time finding bottoms. I have hips and thighs and a really short torso. Many of their slimming line look like they might work for me. I’d like to see them expand to board shorts too (unless I missed them?)
