We can't think of another clothing label that offers the variety of styles, cuts, and fabric options for swimwear- as Lands End does.

The recent media preview-impressed all----with the assortment of splash worthy attire...from sporty to glamorous enough to wear anywhere ---and most with woven in 45+SPF
swim skirts

PLUS: With different body types in mind---the L.E swimsuits have coverage -available for modest types-and for those wanting more revealing options---- with the great fit, stretch and shape retention of swimsuits priced way higher.
