Do You Want a New Lands’ End Swimsuit?

landsend-beachliving.jpgSummer is unofficially here.

But if the thought of dragging out your old swimsuit makes you long for wool sweaters and winter coats, then we have a contest for you — a $100 gift card to get yourself suited up in one of Lands’ End fabulous swimsuits.

Last year, we also ran a Lands’ End swimsuit giveaway, but I didn’t get a chance to try out a suit myself. They looked so fantastic and you all raved in the comment section about what great suits Lands’ End makes, but I had never worn one.

This time, Lands’ End let Susan and I try out suits as well as offering up a gift card as a giveaway. Thanks Land’s End!

To get the full Lands’ End swimsuit shopping experience, I measured myself and used their sizing charts, I used the virtual model feature AND I phoned the help line.

And am I impressed!

Shopping for swimsuits is not easy in person, let alone doing it online! I was a bit overwhelmed at the thought of it actually.

But Lands’ End has set up an INCREDIBLE shopping experience. The variety of sizes, styles and coverage options, along with the sizing chart, makes it possible to find an appropriate suit that actually fits. And the virtual model feature helped me picture my body type in the different suit styles.

The best part of the shopping experience came when I phoned Lands’ End to ask them some questions about what size I should choose, what colors would go best together, etc.

The customer service women who helped me were incredible! Yes, I said women plural! Mary, Karla, Susan and Mary Ann, to be exact.

Why so many? Well – I had a lot of questions!

When I first spoke to Karla, she was so intent on helping me choose the best suit for my body type that she even went to ask her coworker Mary’s opinion. Both of these ladies were so fun and fabulous, I couldn’t have asked for better shopping mates!

Later, I had a couple other questions and when I called back (yes, I called two more times!) I got some more fantastic service from Susan and Mary Ann. These ladies were patient, well informed and most importantly fun! I mean come on – this is shopping ladies. It should be fun!

When the suits arrived, I could see why you all raved about Lands’ End bathing suits. They are made of such high quality fabric and crafted so well. Just beautiful.

So if you are in need of a new suit – or you just want a new suit – head over to Lands’ End and have FUN shopping for summer.

But first, leave a comment here for your chance to win a $100 gift card to Lands’ End.
With one hundred dollars to spend, I bet you will really have fun shopping! And if you talk to Mary, Karla, Susan or Mary Ann, tell them I said “Hi!”

This contest is only open to US shipping addresses. We will announce the winner June 30th.

    I could absolutely use a new swimsuit from Land’s End. I haven’t owned a bathing suit in about five to seven years after my old one wore out.

  2. catherine says

    I looked at the catalog in the mail several weeks ago and thought the suits looked great–maybe even on me?

  3. Tracey Byram says

    I’ve lost 25 pounds in the last year. You’d think that would be a good thing exept now none of my clothes fit. My old swimsuit just hangs on me. A new swimsuit from Lands’ End would be just the thing for me.

  4. Megan says

    Lands’ End is a fabulous company, we love their clothes at our house and their customer service.
    Thanks for this great giveaway!

    OOOOOH! I LOVE Lands End!!!!!

    I could use this to help buy a new wardrobe as I am embarking on a new career and will be finished with school in 6 weeks. Thanks for the opp!

  6. April says

    I love Lands End clothes! The sales people are so wonderful at customer service, too! I would love to get a new bathing suit for our beach vacation!

  7. says

    oh please i need a bathing suit. after having kids i can no longer wear my bikini. i want a tankini. they are so exspensive. this would be a lifesaver

  8. picklemommy says

    Land’s End Kid suits ROCK too- well made, last more than a summer season and don’t fade.

  9. says

    this mamma with stretchmarks from one end to another needs a new, (good), swimsuit so bad. Take pity on the people at the beach and hook me up. Thanks so much!!!

  10. says

    oh i love lands end swimsuits! i have 2 and have worn them both out and am going to have to order a new one soon. i love that you can order the tops and bottoms seperately and they really do last quite a while. i’ve had one for 3 years and the other for 4 years.

  11. says

    Land’s End has such good quality items! The things I’ve purchased have lasted forever! I’d love to win a GC, thanks!

  12. Holly Blanco says

    Land’s End is great! My daughter and I drool over the catalog every time it comes. One of us would love a new swimming suit from them. Great quality merchandise, lasts forever!

  13. says

    Lands End suits look great but I have never been able to bring myself to spend that much on a swimsuit! I’m sure they are as awesome as everyone says! Thanks.

  14. Lisa Overcash says

    Lands End has very nice things. I’ve never bought any because I couldn’t afford it, but I wish I could.

  15. Ally says

    When I was 16 I had a LandsEnd swimsuit, and I can say it was the best quality swimsuit I ever had. Lands End is Awesome!!

  16. Shannon says

    I have been NEEDING a new swimsuit and wanting to try a Land’s End one, but the money just isn’t in the budget! Please pick me!!!

  17. Lachelle says

    A new swimsuit has been on my “list” for quite some time – this would inspired me to finally order one!

  18. says

    Um, should I admit that I have exactly ONE bathing suit? BUT-it is a Land’s End. I got it years ago, but I love the quality you get from LE. Sadly, LE suits are not in the budget anymore, so to win one would be *amazing*! Thanks for doing this!!

  19. Staci J. says

    I would love to have a new swimsuit. I never go to the pool because I can’t afford to get a new one. I bet my girls would like me to get a new swimsuit so they can go to the pool.

  20. says

    Sign me up! I need all the help I can get in the swimsuit area. Lands End seems to be the only ones that know how to help us clueless ones buy the proper swimsuit.

  21. nancy - lessons learned on the farm says

    I would LOVE to win the Land’s End gift card. Oh my. I was just looking on their site the other day at swimsuits and I was even amazed at their great selection for the boys too. We live out in the country and with gas prices so high, shopping online really is the way to go!

  22. says

    After two pregnancies and now two toddlers in the last 3 and a half years, let’s just say I could really use a new swimsuit.

    String bikinis just don’t cut it, anymore, y’know?

  23. Jessica says

    O I need this. My DH just told me that his boss is giving us a sweet trip to Hawaii. They have been working some crazy hours setting up new euqipment and expanding. I was on the verge of bitterness and had resorted to calling the new equipment the “Big Yellow Wife” (want to guess what color it is??) and then he tells me this bit of news. I repented. :) BUt now I need a post-baby swin suit. I happen to be big fan of LE swim wear. !!!

  24. Chaney says

    Lands End has such great products! What a great giveaway. What I would do with a Lands End gift card….

  25. April says

    As a 25yr. old, SAHM, who hasn’t bought a swimsuit in over 7 years, COUNT ME IN!!! From all the reviews I’ve read, Lands End has THE BEST suits!!

  26. says

    I would love a new swimsuit! Haven’t had one since before I was pregnant with my 1-year-old, and while I’ve lost the baby weight, my body sure has changed . . .

  27. says

    Lands’ End is our family’s favorite clothing store. Living way out in the boondocks we buy our clothes online. Lands’ End is great!

  28. says

    I have never worn a Lands End suit either. I would love to own one. I was just looking at suits the other day to try and replace my 4is year old suit. Is it bad that I am wearing a suit from 4 years ago? I think so.

  29. Brandlyn says

    I would love to win this. I have not really been able to afford a new swimsuit this year but this would be awesome to have.

  30. Tanya Moyer says

    I,too, have heard great things about Lands’ End swimsuits and would LOVE to have one! Great giveaway! Thanks for offering this!

  31. JenniferS. says

    I look at their catalogue often and LOVE their stuff and for kids too.
    Count me in!! It would be great to find a suit that fits!

  32. says

    I have wanted one of these for what seems like FOREVER. I tried to talk the hubs into letting me get one but the price tag is just way too high :) But if I win gift certificate for 100 that argument is out the window!

  33. says

    I, too, have heard some wonderful things about Lands End bathing suits and would love the chance to try it out. Especially since I need a new, smaller size this year. So please sign me up!!

  34. says

    We just got a pool for my daughter and she’ begging me to swim with her but of course I don’t have the right suit yet so I keep putting it off. This may be the answer to my little girls prayers.

  35. Stephanie Durant says

    Send me to Lands End! $100 will help me pick the right bathing suit for my trip to North Carolina’s enchanting Outer Banks Islands!

  36. says

    I’m in desperate need.. really – the same suit for 12 years and I just moved to Texas so I want to be at the pool to beat the heat :) Thanks for the chance!

  37. Erica says

    In the past five years I’ve been married and had two children, and I think I have different bras and bathing suits for each of those sizes and stages. Now that I think I’m stable again I’d love a new good bathing suit. Thanks!

  38. Gina Stratos says

    Lands End has such a high standard for their product line. I would love to try their swimsuits.

  39. Beth Y says

    I just had another mom at the pool tell me I really need a new suit. Embarrassing! Thanks for the chance to win.

  40. molly palmer says

    When I think of Lands End I think of my mother handing me the catalog and telling me to pick the clothes I liked. my first backpack for kidergarten was from lands end and I still have it. it’s still in very good condition. so lands end means quality to mean something thats going to last. it also mean’s self confidence. my Sr. year of High School me and my bestfriend went to myrtle beach SC and she was a lot skinner than me. I was worried to have to wear a bathing suit next to her because bathing suits dont hide much. My mom came to the rescue with the lands end catalog in her hand. she showed me a pink and purple suit that had the ability to tuck in my tummy. I’m 26 now and when I look back at the photos I see a confident young lady stareing back at me in her bathing suit that made her feel like a million bucks. I would love to win another lands end bathing suit and create more wonderful memories. and I would like to say thank you and keep up the great work.

  41. says

    OOOOHHH! I’d LOVE to win this, especially since I’m pregnant, due in 7 weeks, and will be in desperate need of a new bathing suit. :)

  42. says

    I have heard many great things about their bathing suits. After some weight loss.. I would love love love to win this :)

  43. says

    I love Lands End swimsuits I had one a few years ago and I haven’t been in a swimsuit as much since. I love how you can mix and match and but different sizes in top and bottom so that they actually fit! Plus if you have problem areas you want to cover you can get a skirt bottom and a tank top top and cover everything without looking like a prudey grandma!

  44. Margaret Smith says

    I love Lands End. Even my husband says that it’s such quality clothing. Please enter me and thanks for this giveaway.

  45. says

    I love, love, love Land’s End swim suits!!! I’ve bought them before and would love to get new one, with the $100 gc of course!

  46. JenPerkins says

    I am a 4’9″ woman, and several people have told me that I should solve my swimsuit-buying dilemma by shopping for one from Land’s End. This is my chance!

  47. Sierra Rendon says

    I desperately need a new bathing suit!! Especially with the hot weather that’s upon us! Thanks for the opportunity!

  48. brooke littman says

    Shopping at Land’s End is ever so much more civilized than the thought of groping through racks of suits under the tutelage of a 50 pound 20 year old and then having to try them on in the glaring light of a three mirrored changing room!

  49. Tobye says

    I love Land’s End suits. They fit so well, and are easy to buy, even on-line. They are great for kids too!

  50. says

    My last swimsuit was from Lands End. It was so easy to buy on-line and the fit is right-on!
    I could use a little updating however…. so $100.00 would be nice…as yes, there are other colors than black for a swimsuit. ( I dont happen to own one of them…but they are out there!)

  51. says

    OH I would love to win! I bought a swimswuit at TJ Maxx. Loved the bottoms…not so crazy about the top now that I’m actually wearing it. 😉

  52. Bev says

    Lands’ End swimsuits are the best. They do not ride up in the bottom, fit terrific, and go the long haul while looking fantastic. I love them!

    Yes, please I would love a new swimsuit for this summer!

  53. Maureen says

    OH My what I wouldn’t give for a new swimsuit.
    I need one badly especially if I am tgoing to the pool this summer with little ones (3,2 and 5 yrs old.

  54. Ann Pinkerton says

    I appreciate the quality and fine workmanship or workwomanship of Land End’s clothing. There tummy shaper swimwear is the best!!

  55. Dana B says

    What a great Lands End gc giveaway! I’ve ordered tops and jeans. It would be fun to try their swimwear!

  56. says

    A new bathing suit is much needed! We’re planning a beach trip in Sept/Oct and I haven’t worn one since before kids!

  57. Darcy says

    I have not gotten a new bathing suit in over 10 years! Sounds like Lands End is a great place to get them. Thanks for the nice giveaway!

    WOW! I guess every woman in the free world needs a new
    bathing suit!!! Go Lands End for making some that fit!!!!!!

  60. Alison D. says

    Lands’ End is one of my favorite places to get swimsuits AND kids’ clothes. Would love to win!

  61. Catherine copeland says

  62. Cindi says

  63. Judith Hopkins says

    I have never been able to afford one of the Lands End bathing suits but I have admired them for a long time.

  64. says

    my hubby and i are cruising to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary. wouldn’t it be great to have a suit that makes me look as good as i did when he first fell for me? :)

  65. says

    I have to admit that sometimes I just enter your contests/giveaways for the fun of it, but don’t really care if I win or not.

    This one I really want to win! Of course, I realize that a lot of other ladies want to win also. :)

    Thanks for all your events!

  66. SarahHub says

    I have purchased 3 new suits so far this summer, and I am not thrilled with any of them. I would love to win one that is this cute!

  67. says

    I am desperately in need of a new suit before our beach trip later in the year. I would love a Land’s End one, especially paid for with a gift card. Thanks for a chance to win!

  68. ~Leigh says

    I could desperately use a new swimsuit. My kids are waterbabies, and my old swimsuit finally bit the dust this summer.

    I have been looking for a new suit this summer and haven’t found one yet. Would love to win the gift card so I can find myelf a new suit!

  70. Donna says

    Only Lands End can come up with a bathing suit that will make me leave the house – and everyone will be thankful that I won.

  71. Terri B says

  72. Barbara Baker says

    Yes, I could really use the gift card to purchase a new swimsuit for this summer. My girls have been asking and asking me to take them swimming but I really hate going in shorts and a Tee shirt. This would be great, I’d be able to buy a swimsuit and a bag to put our towels in…yes, I’m definitely in!!!

  73. Danai says

    I have not had a swimsuit in over 7 years. This would be a great win and get us to the pool this summer for some exercise.

  74. Amy L. says

    What a awesome prize! I love looking at their catalogs and dreaming about placing a huge order (then reality comes back and I close the catalog)! LOL

  75. says

    I’m always looking for some place that can help me fit my body type with the right swimsuit – thanks for the heads up. I’m heading over to Lands End right now.

  76. Jodi says

    I’d love to get a new suit–it’s been ages. What I like best about Land’s End is that they have so many options for bra styles and looks–it’s one of the few places I’ve found that has suits that are relatively modest, but still look modern.

  77. says

    I haven’t worn a swim suit since I was 13! I can never seem to find something that looks good on me that fits in my price range. Land’s End does have some great suits though and I would love to win!

  78. says

    Love to win me a new swimsuit! So fun to mix n match tops with bottoms. I’m a huge fan of the tankini…so, I’d be picking one of those out. But, I’ll need more time than I have right now to decide on ONE!


  79. Elena says

    There is a fabulous sizing tool on the Lands’ End site. This is a great company with beautiful bathing suits. Thanks for a great contest!

  80. says

    Buying a bathing suit is a luxury item for me due to my strict budget and Lands End’s bathing suits are awesome! I haven’t worn a bathing suit in ten years. :)

  81. Katherine Ellis says

    Lands’ End has such great quality clothes. I would love to win this so I could get a new swimsuit.

  82. Casey H says

    Well since Im going to be preggo all summer and my 3 year old needs a new swimsuit, I’d have to share this with her… Im loving the orange/pink scrunchback tankini and the tangerine tye dye coverup!

  83. Barbara Quick says

    I already have several suits from Land’s End and I love them !!!!! When I wear them I always get compliments !!!!!!

  84. Brenda says

    Ooh, I would love one. I’ve had two babies since I last bought a suit and I oould really use a nice updated one! LOL!! Land’s End is the best!

  85. says

    I’ve been eyeing Land’s End swimsuits for a while now…ready to take the plunge and get a new suit now that I’ve taken off 17 lbs…hope I win!

  86. Evelyn says

  87. Sandy - Em's mommy says

    please sign me up… I haven’t had a new swimsuit since college, and now after a baby… i need one! LOL

  88. Liz G. says

    What a great prize– thanks for the giveaway!

    I have to second your opinion on Land’s End- everytime I have dealt with them they have been nothing but fabulous. They’re products are worth the money and fit normal size people, as opposed to only the Size 0’s.

  89. Becca says

    need need need, want want want!! I am such a J.Crew kind of girl, I appreciate all of their products and constantly check their clearance and sales, otherwise it is just a little to steep.

  90. melissa says

    i have spent hours on the site already looking for the perfect suit! i hope to win and put the card to good use!

  91. Maggie Mannwieler says

    I’ve heard Land’s End has great bathing suits, but being so overweight I have avoided buying a swim suit. So if I win this contest, I will head over to Land’s End, use their virtual model and find a swim suit that has good coverage. Thanks for offering such great information and giveaway!

  92. Susan Snyder says

    This would be an awesome shopping spree to win! they have great quality stuff ! Please enter me!

  93. Laura says

    Great contest! I recently lost some weight and have got to get a new suit. Last year’s is falling off me!

  94. May Schultz says

    I haven’t bought a swimsuit in years. I sure could use a new one. And one that would hide some of my “chubbier” body parts!

  95. says

    Okay, with so many contestants, I almost didn’t try, but I could REALLY use a good suit. I haven’t worn one since having a baby… PICK ME! PICK ME!

  96. Tonya Keener says

    I live at the beach but can’t even afford a bathing suit and now I know I won’t because I was just laid off work. Please help me

  97. Cori Westphal says

    LOVE Lands End. Everything they sell is reasonably priced, comfortable and practical. Can’t beat that! Thanks for the great contest!

  98. Georgina S says

    This is the first time I’m really looking at there stuff I really like there clothes and swimwear!

  99. Julie S. says

    I’ve been wearing the same swimsuit for a few years now, and am long overdue for a new one! Sure would love to win this!

  100. Katie Quinn says

    I love their suits because they are pretty even though I am a long torso/women’s size. So many suits are just for the skinny girls, but regular moms want to look good at the beach, too! Land’s End makes that possible.

  101. says

    my need for a new swimsuit is so far beyond anyones imagination that it borders on pathetic.
    i have not had a new one in many, many years and really could use one. hope i win this cause if i don t ill not be swimming again this year.

  102. Tina B says

    I would love to try a Lands End suit! I have a super discount swimsuit and it really doesn’t help the c-section pouch. Thanks for the oppourtunity!

  103. Katharine says

    I love the quality and durability of thier clothes. I need a new suit and that is the only catalog I will search

  104. says

    Oh, how I need a new Land’s End swimsuit!

    We are going with family to Florida in July and then, oh my! Feller is taking me to Hawaii for our 10th anniversary!

    Yes, a new suit is in order!! THANKS!

  105. Jennifer Cullen says

    Love the side tie solid swimsuit! I desperately want this for my birthday on the 14th!!! Hope I win!

  106. Patricia Schmitt says

    I’d love to win a swim suit from Land’s End! I adore the ladies plus size clothing – Watch out here come’s a canon ball !!!

  107. shannon w. says

    Though not looking forward to the prospect of squeesing my post-pregnancy body into a bathing suit, the lands end selection will certainly make it less painful!

  108. says

    Oh I could REALLY use a new suit. I was just commenting to my husband this past weekend that the suit I have is 12 – YES 12 – years old! I have had it since we were married. I’m shocked it still fits and held up that long. But I guess it’s time to give in and get a new one. LOL

  109. Regina says
