Tugless by name, tugless by nature
It's the perfectly simple swimsuit you can rely on to be as flattering as it is functional, not least stay put as you swim, stroll and sunbathe. It is, after all, named for the very reason that its modest straps and seat don't need tugging back into place every few minutes. Modestly-cut leg offers full coverage at the seat. 74% nylon/26% elastane. Hand wash.
Features
  • Simple, understated swimsuit is designed to flatter every body shape
  • Sensible straps and seat don't require tugging back into place
  • Shelf bra; scoop back
  • Modest leg height
  • Fabric provides UPF 50 sun protection - blocks 98% of harmful rays
  • Please note: colours Black, Deep Sea and Vivid Grape are unlined

      Comments about Women's Tugless Swimsuit with shelf bra:

      I've bought these swimming costumes in previous years, because they're the nicest tall ones I've found, but I find it really sad that you no longer stock size 10 in tall. Please bring back size 10!

      not so good as my first - design has changed!

      By Misslongbody

      from South east london

      Comments about Women's Tugless Swimsuit with shelf bra:

      The first one of these tugless swimsuits I bought was back in2012 and it fitted well. A replacement was needed as the material has started degrade from the chlorine. I ordered the navy blue with the white piping edge. Seemingly the same design and Same size as before. 8L (uk12L). Sadly this new one is not as long. In order to get the bra shelf to the right position I need to raise the low leg to a high leg to give me the material needed (this is not good as I liked the more modest leg height). This is what I would normally have to do on costumes that aren't long body. All that is obviously different is that this costume is fully lined at the front whereas my old one wasn't.. Perhaps this lining doesn't stretch as well. Not sure if I will keep it. Why is finding a costume to fit so difficult?

        I loved my Long black Swimsuit and wanted to buy another -so very disappointing to see there is only one size left in LONG.

        Lands End told me there is little demand for LONG suits - clearly not true, if these are sold out! You are missing sales opps.

        Comments about Women's Tugless Swimsuit with shelf bra:

        Having searched for a long torso swimsuit for a long time, I was delighted to find this one. However I had to return my swimsuit as it wasn't long enough. To me, it didn't seem any longer than most 'regular' swimsuits I've tried on in the past. Disappointed :(

            I had the last remaining colour (a violent shade of magenta) in the "long" fitting of this swimsuit. I'd have preferred a less eye-popping shade, but no matter - it's long enough, as most swimsuits are not. For those of us with long torsos, O Lands End please please please bring back the "long" option in your swimsuits. I will buy them I promise.

              Longer length swimsuit

              Pleased that LE are stocking longer length swimsuits again -only one style and in limited colours though.
              I need these as they are really comfortable for serious swimming as exercise and aqua aerobics. Pool blue is a lovely colour and other swimmers ask me where I get my swimsuits from. The Tugless suits are very flattering. Please continue to stock some in TALL.

              Please provide more colours in Long Swimsuits. I had a Tugless in a lovely red/purple based colour before it went baggy in a jacuzzi (as all swimsuits seem to) but now the choice is black. or black. Black is not my colour, it drains what colour I have from my face - so unfortunately there are no choices for me :-( Please bring back a range of colours or at least one more! Thanks. I would recommend buying a size larger than you would normally though, my normal size felt too tight but Lands End were great in replacing it for the next size up, even though I'd worn and swam in it.

                  Hi, and thanks for your enquiry. As we're coming to the end of our Summer season we're currently selling through our swimwear and so won't expect new stock until early in 2016. Our apologies for any disappointment this may cause and, if we can offer any further assistance, please don't hesitate to call us on 0800 220 106.

              • Q:

                I am looking for a tugless swimsuit, long length, unlined (as the lined ones feel too thick and warm in hot weather) and NOT in black. These are the only suits that fit me! Having scanned your website there seem to be no options at all. Are you going to be having more in this summer or do I have to resign myself to buying a black suit?

                Many thanks and best wishes

                  The only tugless suit that we have available without the whole lining, is Women's Long Tugless Embroidered Swimsuit with Shelf Bra, style number 455008. This has a front lining. It is available in the Deep Sea Colour.
                  We will not be having any more swimsuits styles (other than the 'tugless') available in the long torso.

                Like you other corrspondents I have not been able to find another swimsuit as good as your tugless long torso swimsuit. I have six in various colours which now need replacing. Why have you stopped marketing the long torso option?
                Even if you don't sell as many as the regular fitting I would be happy to pay a price premium to get back my favourite fitting swimsuit.
                Please think again on this matter.

                  Come on, you aren't a little shop on the high street with no clout. There can only be one answer to this question and that is that Lands' End are not interested in what the customer wants. It cannot be a question of demand. Surely if there is a market for swim dresses there is a bigger market for longer length swim suits?
                  I wouldn't be quite as annoyed if your did not SAY that you do long length in almost every suit.

                Why advertise that you sell long torso swimming costumes when, in fact, you don't. They are either permanently out of stock, or not really suitable for swimming (have foam cups)? Do you do ANYTHING? Can bras be removed?
