Rated 5 out of 5 by LondonPeach Figure flattering glamour
I bought this months ago in navy and have had compliments every time I've worn it. The design is fabulous 50s glamour and the cut wears more like shorts, which I love as it downplays my hips unlike most normal swimsuit cuts. I've also gained weight around my stomach recently and this does a good job of minimising the bulge.
The only cons here are that if you are a true pear shape with relatively little on top, you do need to tie the suit fairly tight to stop the inbuilt bra cups from drooping. Also, the fabric is of the highest quality and very thick. But that also means it takes an age to dry if you can't dry it out in the sun (as was the case on a recent trip where our hotel room didn't have a balcony and it was still damp when I put it on the next day). Finally, I would recommend sizing down 1 size if you like a snug fit. While I wouldn't say mine is loose, it doesn't feel as tight as I'd like it to.
All in all I think the price is worth the investment as it's likely to be the most durable and flattering suit you'll find!

Two years ago I saw this swimsuit and considering purchasing it, but waited too long and it sold out. When I saw it offered again last summer I snapped it up and I have no regrets. When I put it on I don't have to worry about the bottom or the top shifting out--I can just enjoy myself at the beach instead. For reference, I'm about 110 and 5'5" with 32A and the size 4 fit nicely. Because of the way the cups are structured, you can't really tell that I have such a small bust.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BookishB Great suit, but fits huge!
After reading the other reviews I sized down but it still feels like it's two sizes too big. Wish I could exchange it but I need it for this weekend :(
Besides sizing, the material is GREAT quality, feels durable, lots of support in the bust, and it hides any unflattering lumps and bumps. Great suit.
