I am 6 months pregnant and just received a size 8 for the summer. I tried it on to see if it'd even go on, to get an idea of how it might fit after the birth. I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised:
I was able to get it over my belly and fully tied on. I think bikinis look better on pregnant women, but I bought it for after the birth. I am 5'5". Before getting pregnant, I was 125 pounds and a small C. Now I am 146 pounds and a large C. The size 8 fits snugly when fully stretched out in the middle. I think it will fit nicely this summer, when I anticipate being around 135 pounds and maybe a large C/small D.
I didn't realize the cups were padded, but it's actually fine/flattering. The boy shorts come down enough to make me feel very secure.
My only issue is the rope design isn't quite as sophisticated in person. But the vertical stripes are very flattering, so I can get over it quickly!

so flattering! LOVE!
i have never written a review before -- but i felt compelled because I LOVE THIS BATHING SUIT! got it in the mail yesterday, slipped it on -- and i think it was the first time in my adult life that i actually LIKED the way i looked in a bathing suit. came back on anthro website today to get the floral one, too. have not worn it i the water yet -- it's possible the chest is a little big and might sag in the water -- but i don't care cuz it's so darn cute :). i'm 5 ft 7.5 in, 118 lbs - and i got the size 4 - body and legs of suit fit well.

Perfect if you don't have big boobs
I just received it and i have to say i am a bit disappointed. I am 5ft. 4 and 150lbs, i ordered a 10. It fits perfectly, except at the chest. I am a 36DD and i am so upset because this bathing suit has no support for big boobs. I am afraid they will come out everytime i jump in the pool and i really don't want to worry about it. So, i don't know if i'll keep it or send it back. I thought at this price and because of the comments, i'd have a good support and everything, but i'm not sure it's worth the money i spent. It's not because of the suit itself, more like my breast.
Also, last thing that i don,t really like is the back. It looks a bit awkward with the seam in the middle.
For reference: I'm a 34 DD, 5'6, 140 lbs.
I wear one pieces and have been so tired of the typical halter top style and plain colors. However, finding a suit that is supportive enough for my girls isn't easy. This was surprisingly great! I just had a baby a few months ago and still have 10 lbs. to lose but I went with the large because I usually have to size up so suits fit in the chest area. Well, the large fits well all over... hopefully it'll be a little looser when I get to my pre-baby weight before summer but Ill have it taken in when that happens because I still need the size for the chest.
There is a little bit of ruching in the tummy, but very slight, so it wont sag when its wet. And the bum is cut really nicely, it doesn't cut in and make me look bulgy, just lays flat and smooth. The bust and neck style is really flattering and stylish... for my size chest, my girls aren't hanging out on the sides and there is no gross push-up or bum crack cleavage in the middle. Its all just surprisingly beautifully fit. It made me feel really pretty and stylish, which is always important but especially since I haven't been feeling much since the baby weight. :) Worth buying at least to give it a shot.

Took away one star on the quality of this one only because I usually like a heavier/thicker swimsuit, however it is lined so it is not see-through (very important). The style and fit are great, flattering for pretty much any figure (except maybe the very-very large chested - I am 34C and it is plenty roomy in that area for a couple sizes up from there, but not baggy to where a flat chested girl wouldn't look just as cute in it!) Can't wait to get to the beach this summer!

beautiful one piece!
So I finished grad school a few lbs heavier, and didn't lose weight in time for January cruise. Enter, this bathing suit. I was looking for something flattering, and unique. LOVE LOVE LOVE THE NECKLINE. This suit was so incredibly flattering. I normally shy away from white anything but I loved this.
At the time I was bloated from vacation traveling and cruise shenanigans, so I took a Large. 5'4, 160ishlbs, 36C boob. Loved the peep key hole situation too.
If Anthro releases this suite in another color pattern, I would happily snap it up! (but this time in a smaller size since the weight is coming off)
Great quality material that should last through many vacations. Very flattering from top to the hips. This style of suit cuts at the thighs which is not as flattering, but expected. I am typically a size 2 and got a size 6. Very happy I read reviews prior. Adorable pineapple print.

I am in love!
This swimsuit is fantastic :) I'm apple shaped, so I sized up to fit my thighs. I love this swimsuit! It was so wonderful to go tubing on the river and splashing around at the waterpark. Loads of compliments and super flattering!

I just received this today and could not be more happy! I was wary about ordering a bathing suit on-line, but thanks to the other reviews on the other Boyleg Maillot's, I was able to guess correctly that I would need the size 6. It is very flattering and hides my not so flat tummy. It is also helpful in the chest dept. and boosts my 34B's nicely :) I also love the boyleg cut! The color and print are even cuter in person. I am blonde and pale and it still looks good without a tan. My new favorite and worth every penny!
This suit is gorgeous! The colors are bright & fun, & it looks great with a tan. I am 5'4", a 36B, size 27 in jeans. I have broad shoulders and an athletic physique. I purchased the medium. It fits beautifully & is extremely flattering. It makes "the girls" look very nice & the cut of the suit and strategic seams minimize the waist. The coverage in the bum is comfortable & does not ride up. The bra cups have removable liners. The ends of the straps have tassels made of tiny gold chains & little multi-colored beads, & can be easily removed. I think this suit would be flattering on just about anyone! It is worth the price to feel confident all summer!

Curvy ghals swimsuit
This swimsuit is ultra-flattering and super cute. As a VERY curvy girl it’s hard to find swimsuits that make you look and feel sexy without looking ridiculous This was definitely a win for the summer.. LOVE!!!

Love this one piece. So beautiful. Great material. Fits perfectly true to size. Cannot wait to wear in Barbados in a few weeks.
Can't believe this suit exists. Love it so much. It's comfortable and secure and I just love the style. I was a little worried the lining section in the bust area would look funky, but it's fine. It fits nicely all around. I'm petite 5' 4" 118 lbs and am happy in a medium. Small would have been fine but was tight for me in the bust (32D).
Apparently it's made from recycled water bottles- which I thought was neat. The fabric is nice and strong. Great at holding some jiggle in place:). The top is a little small but I just pull it up and it's fine. I really like this suit.
Finally found the best sport swimsuit - it was sporty yet elegant! Loved the colour, not to mention the material was thick and strong, so it will be very durable. It fits a little snug but nothing I can complain about. Definitely a keeper! Thank you Anthrow!!!
Proof that flattery will get you everywhere? High-waisted swimwear. From classic polka-dot numbers to geo-print options, these vintage-inspired swimsuits are all about complementing curves, so naturally, they?re one of the hottest silhouettes under the sun. We, too, can?t resist their retro charm: give us a high-waisted bikini, a pair of sweet cateye sunnies, and you?ll find us out by the pool soaking up some rays. (The sooner you select a swimsuit, the sooner you can join us!)
