I have looked at Land End swimwear on many occasions but have been put off by the price! Therefore I was delighted when I found a couple of items in the sale at an excellent price which tempted me to buy. I have to say that the quality is superb, the fit is even better - very flattering. The material is quite thick which may or may not be a drawback. I haven't tested them yet! On the positive side the robustness of the fabric will mean that I can probably play sport in them as well.
