This is is some suit. I live in bikinis -- thankfully I'm slim and fit enough to look good in them -- but because I'm having a last hurrah at improving my dives, decided (reluctantly) that a one-piece would be more practical (high dives not conducive to keeping bikini top intact!). After reading through reviews of this suit and the one with belted middle, ordered this is black and moss (not moss at all, just a nice grass green and navy print). Tried green one on first expecting to see flattened bosom and no sign of a waist (athletic build so that's what usually happens in one-pieces). Oh my -- I actually had a figure in this this suit! Black one was even better!
Really and truly, this is a fab suit. It makes your waist look small, your hips and backside slim and gives your bust a lift. I'm 5 7" and normally a 4 or 6 in anthro dresses. When I first pulled the suit on I thought it might be a little small and it does tend to compress you a bit, but the body length was perfect, the fit around my bust great, and coverage of my bottom was exactly right. A bigger size would have been a little baggy and definitely mumsy.
Can't decide which one to keep as I really like them both. And whichever I keep I know I'll be wearing on more than just my diving days.

Adorable and flattering
This suit is adorable and flattering but didn't fit me quite right. I'm 5'2", 120 lbs., 32 C. I'm a petite hourglass. I usually wear an XS or XS P in most anthropologie tops and dresses and a 0-4 in pants depending on brand and cut. The suit fit me well in the size small but the bust area was too small. For a B cup I think it would fit perfectly. Everywhere else fit although the elastic in the butt was a little loose resulting in the bottom being a little "cheeky" if I moved around.

i was on the market for a new suit because i just had a baby. so i was looking for something with ruching to cover up the extra pooch, hold the girls in, and make me feel confident. this suit fits the bill. usually anthro suits run teeny tiny, so i ordered an xl with fingers crossed that it would fit. and to my surprise it fits well, with a little extra room. if i had known that, i most likely would have ordered a L instead. my only complaint is that the little pads in the cups dont stay put very well and aren't as supportive as i would like. but overall, i LOVE the design, the pattern (I got the brown motif), and how it makes me feel confident at the pool!
My suit just came in the mail and I tried it on and am SO in love with how it fits! I want to order all the other colors! The quality is better than any swimsuit ive ever owned and the colors are even more vibrant than the picture shows. There is even a little rubber strip lining on the top of the bra so that the girls dont move. my bra size is 34B-32C and it fits great. I was a little worried because I am a size 0 in clothing but I ordered the 4 and it fits great. sooo excited to wear it!

So flattering, and quality swimsuit material!
This suit was definitely a splurge for my pocketbook, but totally worth it! I try to buy a quality piece for my wardrobe once a month so not only do I have something to look forward to, but I also can stay within my budget. Very happy with this swimsuit, especially now that I am prepared for the warm Vegas summer! I am curvy, and much more comfortable in a one-piece after having two babies. The ruching helps hide my tummy, yet gives my girls plenty of support! Keep up the good work Anthro, you've got a customer for life! :)

I ordered this swimsuit because of the super cute design and perfect fit for my mom bod ;) would highly recommend this suit! I am 5'5" 135 lbs and the size 8 is perfect.
I really love this suit. For reference, I am 5'7, 135 pounds, cup size: B, and either wear a 4 or 6 in Anthro dresses. I ordered the medium, but had to exchange it for a large. I found it to be tight in the butt area, and exposed a little too much rear end for my taste :). The chest area fit well for me, a smaller-chested girl, but imagine it could also work well for C cups as well. (It may lack support for cup sizes larger than C.) Excited to rock this chic suit in Miami next month! Great quality, and so stylish!

Super Cute Suit
This bathing suit is super cute and stylish. It is a great alternative to a two-piece because it covers the stomach but is still very sexy. As other reviewers have noted, the bust is rather skimpy. As someone who is barely a B cup though, it works because it makes me look a lot bigger up top, which is a win! This suit does have minimal back coverage as well, so that is something else to keep in mind. I typically wear a size 2 or 4 and I ordered a small. I'm actually looking forward to bathing suit season now!

very skimpy bust
I agree with the reviewer who described the bust as skimpy. I'm fairly small-chested and the suit barely covered me. A lovely concept and high quality in general, but shows far too much chest.
This suit is very flattering and well made. The combination of the pink/peach and purple is lovely. I ordered a medium as I have a long torso but have now ordered a small to see if I like the fit better. Either way, I am kepping this suit!
I am 5/8" and athletic. Small bust and so the V neck works great for me.

I was looking for a flattering one piece swimsuit, and this is it! The purple and peach colors in the suit are much brighter in person, but still very nice. The most flattering parts, to me, are the slight ruching on the stomach and the padded cups (work well for a small bust). The coverage on the butt is not too much or too little. It is a pricey swim suit, but the quality is there!
This is a really lovely suit but i had to return it because it had no room for my girls. I ordered a size large which is what I typically wear and everything but the top fit and looked great, a rather unique design. So, if you are, say, a C cup or smaller I cannot recommend this suit enough.

This is a beautiful bathing suit and very show-stopping! This suit is really a good value for the money. I do agree with the other reviewer that this suit is definitely for the smaller busted because there isn't much support, but if you fit that description, don't hesitate!
I knew I had to have this suite when I saw it online. If you're a busty girl the plunging neckline can be a little revealing, however, I'm a 34 C and it fits perfectly. The material is high quality and not see through in the important areas. The peplum skirt accentuates the tush and allows for a comfortable suite around the vanity area (tummy). It has that perfect mix of sweet, classic and sexy. I purchased the white.
Love this one-piece! Beautiful colors, Great quality, love the fabric and the straps are super comfortable-they do not dig into your shoulders at all. I am a 4/6 and ordered a small and it fits well. Like the previous reviewer mentioned, this suit is conservative in the front and a little more revealing on the backside--I would have preferred more coverage but overall happy with my purchase and recommend!

I love the bright print on this suit. It has light padding in the chest which makes for a smooth silhouette. The leg openings are a bit unusual -- conservative in front, but show a bit of cheek in back -- which I think gives it a vintage vibe without being dowdy.
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!)
