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.

I am extra picky when it comes to swim suits. And I have been extra bored with everything the past couple years. I wear a 34 DD and was kind of hesitant when ordering this because of the peep hole/neckline and no padding...but it is honestly one of the most flattering suits I have ever purchased! I am also always slightly self conscious of my stomach in swim suits and this was again SO FLATTERING! The small amount of gathering on the sides is perfect. I could not be happier with this purchase!

Just what I was hoping for!
This suit is absolutely fabulous! It has subtle ruching on the sides to help conceal my problem area/tummy. I was initially worried the keyhole might be a bit too revealing for my large chest (34DD) but, with a bit of adjusting it worked perfectly and stays in place so that I don't have to keep messing with it. The colors are a bit brighter but darker? than what I was thinking, but the suit is really fun! Also, it's full coverage on the hips and rear, which is a plus!
This bathing suit. Wow! I can not say enough good things. I purchased it in a size small in the brown motif, knowing it was on back-order and hoping it would come earlier than expected. To my pleasant surprise, it did!
This suit fits like a glove, and the ruching on the torso is so flattering. The floral print is even prettier in person than online. If you do have a larger cup size, you may want to consider ordering up a size. (I am 5 ft 6 inches, 125 lbs, size 34 B/C bra and it fit true to size, but I think if my chest was any larger, I would have needed the medium).
This is the prettiest bathing suit I will ever buy!

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!

I was a bit nervous ordering this suit online since I lost a little weight recently and wasn't quite sure what size I am, let alone what size I should order. But most anthros don't have a big swimwear section, so i just took the chance and ended up ordering a small. It seems to fit great! I do have a pretty small chest--for reference I'm like a 34 B, but it's not too tight so if you're a little bustier I think it would be fine. Probably wouldn't fit someone with huge boobs great.
I bought this bikini top (and matching bottom) in black, and it's perfect in every way. I am small busted and usually rely on fillers to make me look fuller, but they are not necessary with this top. You can tie the top to suit your shape. It is flattering and versatile. Simple and sexy. Very happy. My new fav bikini. I wear it with confidence.

GREAT subtly sexy top, but not for larger busts
This top is so subtly sexy. I am 42, so super-skimpy (e.g. barley-there triangle bikini tops) are a no-no for me; this top provides the necessary coverage I was looking for, but also a sexy twist (if you're not ready for the full-on matronly look)!
This top can be worn two ways: tied in the front (as shown here online) OR you can wrap the ties across the front of your body and then tie them in the back, below the stationary back strap. The latter is the better look, IMO. When you wrap the suit straps around your body you get better support and coverage, and the look is reminiscent of early '90's Versace swimwear: very sexy and very sophisticated, but still age-appropriate.
This suit is not padded, but it is thick enough to provide "coverage" when it is wet - or if you are cold (if you know what I mean).
This suit does NOT provide a lot of support. Depending on the style of bra, I am either a 36B or a 34C and although the M fit, I went with the large to provide more side and cleavage coverage. This suit in NO way "lifts" you - there is no padding at all, nor any removable inserts (a plus in my book).
If you are very well-endowed, or you are looking for - or need - a "lift" this is NOT a good suit for you. This suit will look awesome on As, Bs and small Cs, and on athletic builds.

Cute but small
I recently bought this top online in the green - it is very similar to the color displayed, maybe a tad darker but still quite light. It is super cute and I love that you can tie it a few different ways, but it is definitely for smaller chests. I am a 34B with broad shoulders and bought a small as I normally do. It fit but I had to pull the ties pretty tight to make sure the girls didn't fall out of them when I bent over. Still excited to wear this suit on my trip to Hawaii!
I have a hard time buying bikini bottoms because I have wide hips. I was so happy with these size large bottoms. It looks super cute on and flatterers my wide hips. It fits true to size.

I bought this on a whim as I was so in love with the blue floral pattern and vintage cut of the top. It is amazing! It definitely fits comfortably, doesn't sit too low and has moderate coverage on the booty, which I like.
With the matching top, it gives an adorable vintage look, but updated at the same time with the more modern cut bottoms. All in all, definitely recommend! Can't wait to wear this to the beach in the summer! :)
For size reference I'm usually a 8 or 29 in Anthro pants and I got a medium.
Creamy color, soft fabric and amazing fitt! I adore it. Arrived just in time for my beach getaway! I was worried about the Bottoms, but it really it enhanced my curves. I just love anthropologie swimwear. This is the second bikini I've purchased online and I have no regrets! I ordered the top in small and the bottoms in medium.
This pants is well made. The fabric is lightweight and very nice. Very nice pattern. I also bought the matching top but it was very narrow around the hip...I had to return it. So, I will not be able to have the matching set.
I love this swim cover-up. The colors are vivid and everything is just as pictured...really lovely! Also the silk fabric is nice and it is not see-through. I'm planning to wear this over a black swimsuit but also I put it over a striped one and I couldn't see the stripes underneath. Added bonus! It is a bit pricey but I bought it at 15% off (birthday month). In hindsight I would pay full price, it is perfect.
