Rated 2 out of 5 by from Thin fabric Fits well but handkerchief fabric is very thin making it cling on the tummy. Thought it would be flowing like the picture.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! First time buyer at Swimsuitsforall and am shocked it is perfect for me! I have never even TRIED on suits before at stores and had a "perfect" since I was young -- amazed to order one through mail and love it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice suit I'm big around the middle so this helps to hide that part of my body I just wish the bra part of the suit had more support. (I'm a D cup)If I shorten the straps for more support I feel like the girls are going to fall out the bottom of the bra but otherwise it's a nice suit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So flattering! I love love love this suit! I love the waterbut have avoided the beach and the pool for the past few years because I've gained so much weight and though I've tried a number of different styles nothing look presentable to me. I kept looking at this tankini top but worried it wouldn't look right. Finally I ordered it with both the short boy shorts and the longer bike shorts. It looks adorable with either pair. I've gotten several compliments and I'm thinking of ordering it in a couple of the prints.I'm definitely apple shaped. I carry my weight in my belly and my butt. I have an average size chest and nice legs. This suit is perfect for me! I'm so grateful to swimsuits for all for this suit and the comfort to go back to the water I love so much!

How flowy is the top on this .. meaning if you're thick through the middle, is this tight? or will it sway

Is this black or navy blue?

I need to know the length from below the empire line under the bow, to the middle bottom...please.... it said side seam was 14 in but the middle front looks much shorter..true?

BEST ANSWER: Hi Barbara!

The length should be 14", however the sides are slightly longer due the style of this tankini top.
can you adjust straps so they do not cross?
A shopper on Apr 23, 2015
BEST ANSWER: yes, you can adjust them to fit like a bra strap
Is there something under the flowy part? Will the flowy part float around in the water?
Sheila F on Mar 29, 2015
BEST ANSWER: There's nothing under the printed top. It floats up a bit, but not much.
When ordering a tankini do you just go by your bust measurement or do you need waist measurement as well?

Please compare your bust/waist/hip measurements to the sizing chart below:
Please disregard the " Cup Size" on the sizing chart. ( It's generic to the universal sizing statistics.)
** Your bra size is different from your actual bust measurement.

In case of an 18, the bust measurement is 44 inches.
