The Lands' End Getaway Tour's professional swim fit experts have been offering personal swimsuit fittings and style advice to women, making stops in six cities throughout US and Canada including Atlanta, New York, Boston Toronto, Chicago and the final stop coming up in Madison, Wisconsin on June 7th.
I visited the Lands' End Getaway Tour during their stop at Flatiron Plaza in NYC on May 21st. Fashion stylist , top-selling author and Glamour Glambassador, Kendall Farr, was on hand to discuss swim trends.
I also had a professional fitting session and one-on-one swim silhouette consultation. Based on my bust, hip, waist and torso measurements, I received some swimsuits to try on to find. Lands' End offers swimsuit sizes from size 2 to 26W, ranging from regular and petite (short torso) to tall (long torso) and plus sizes. Although petite sizes are offered, I found that I really need a size 0, as the styles I tried on in a size 2 were loose fitting. I did like the style of the Bella Flora Floral Pleated Retro High Rise Swimsuit Bottom. I would most likely pair it with a more simple, solid color bikini top, without any pleating detail.
