Â by JustErin Pretty Pattern, Not Very Flattering
I loved the pattern of this the moment I saw it appear online and ordered as soon as it hit sale.
Fit: I am normally a six/eight in most clothing. I ordered this in both the US8 and US10. The first time around I received it in the AUS8 (aka a US4) and had to return. After receiving the correct sizes - I found that the top of this suit (in particular the cup size) was cut much larger than the bottom of the suit. I have a small-ish bust (36B) - the eight was just slightly large on top. The ten which fit my legs and hips better was noticeably too large on top. Although the cups are removable and removing them helped the overall look of the swimsuit - I think they're necessary in this style for support (as the removal strap didn't add much).
Despite the issue with the fit - the real deal breaker for me was it just didn't do much for my figure. I have a straight figure (thick waist) and this just made me feel like a rectangle. The pattern and cut did nothing to give me any sort of shape - and so for me it'll go back.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by lis98 Molded Cups Issue
I'm a curvy size 12 and I ordered a 12, with large B/small C cups. The body of this suit fit well, however the cups were too big for my chest (I couldn't fill it out and it felt as if my chest was swimming in a large pool of nothing). I might say that this would really work well for someone with a bigger chest, however i'm not sure if the support would be there. The fabric was comfy and didn't cut into my legs or tush. I have to send this back, still in search for the perfect one piece bandeau.

The swimsuit is gorgeous, made out of great material and I liked the way it looked on me....if only I was 2-3 inches shorter. (5'10, 34D & 140lbs, and I ordered a size 6)
It just didn't go up high enough to cover my chest, no matter how much I stretched or how tight I tied it. I was really looking forward to the molded cups, but they hit about an inch too low. This should be great for anyone who is in the average height range.
