Rated 2 out of 5Â by diana Perfect fit on body, huge on top
This was a big disappointment. It's a GREAT looking suit and the torso and hips fit perfectly. But, the straps and bra section are huge. I was concerned when I took it out of the package; the top looks like it is a completely different size; the shoulders are wide and the cups offer no support, but they really can't because the whole top is too big and not at all form-fitting as a swimsuit should be. I wear a 42D bra and couldn't fill this swimsuit!

Rated 3 out of 5Â by SuburbanMom Flattering front, unflattering back
I think the suit runs large. I am typically a size 18 or 20 for regular clothing in the stores, but in this suit I needed a size 14. I liked this suit from the front. The sapphire is a pretty color, the cut and style are flattering for my apple shaped body, and the cups seemed like they would hold the "girls" firmly in place. However, the back was open too low and too wide for my body. It seemed as if every lump, bump and roll was hanging out for the world to see, which I found disappointing. I wanted something that would work well for real swimming at the pool with my child. This seemed like it would fit the bill and all parts of the suit would stay in place, but I just couldn't handle the back. I returned it.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Beachbum My favorite swimsuit!
This is my favorite suit by far. Beautiful colors and a great fit. I have read the other reviews and have to disagree with them. Yes, the back is lower than some, but still modest because it is a narrow U with plenty of fabric to cover and support the sides of the back where some people have rolls or folds. And unless you think the catalog photo is too risquÃ© (because that is exactly how the suit really fits) I don't think the top is too revealing. Or too big. But maybe it should be marketed as being D/DD friendly. I love that the shirred waist provides extra support and coverage to hide tummy bulges.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by tajhntee Great at slimming the tummy area!
This bathing suit does a wonderful job at camouflaging the tummy area. The fabric is relatively substantial but the back is cut a little low, I wish it came up just an inch higher. Beware if you have large chest size because there's only moderate support in the bust area. For reference I am have a 40 inch waist, 50 inch hips, with 40G bra size and I ordered an 18, the fit was snug yet it covered my entire bottom and most of my breasts, but it does show some cleavage on me. The suit will hold my breasts in without popping out, but it's not super supportive there's definitely a little jiggle but I can live with it. Overall is does the job of looking stylish yet reasonably modest. Also the pattern is very pretty.
