  • Full one-piece matching black suit underneath
  • Sizes 8-16 fit up to a C/D cup; sizes 18-34 fit up to a D/DD cup

  • Hand wash.
  • Flat dry.
  • After every use, the garment must be hand washed. Harmful elements such as suntan lotions, salt, chlorine, and body perspiration can cause discoloration and spandex breakdown. Since laundry detergents are too harsh on the spandex and the color, use mild hand soap made without added moisturizers. Do not wring the swimsuit to remove excess water. Lay it flat on a towel and roll the towel up and squeeze gently. Remove it from the towel and lay it flat to dry. Do not hang it to dry as that will stretch out the fibers in the fabric. Avoid using washers and dryers as damage can occur due to agitation and excessive heat. It is also important to let your suit "rest" between uses. This allows the spandex to bounce back (called recovery) to its original size and maintain its fit longer. If you wear a suit without letting it recover, it will lose its shape and fit more quickly. It's recommended to let the suit rest for 24-36 hours between uses. Always remove excess moisture with a towel and lay flat to dry indoors or in the shade. Also note, direct sunlight will fade your suit. It is always a great idea to have more than one suit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and Sexy I LOVE this suit! It was extremely flattering on me. From the pics, I thought I would like it, but didn't know I was going to love it. YEA! I couldn't see from the pics but the bottom of the suit is not exactly a straight line, but has some frill to it - not quite lettuce edge, but something to give it some depth and movement if that makes sense. It is retro and I felt pin up girl sexy in it without it being super revealing. It completely covered my problem areas (tummy and upper thighs),and smoothed out my hips. It's hard to find plus size suits that make you feel pretty, but this one fits the bill.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very attractive styling I purchased this swimdress because it was a longer length skirt. I have heavy thighs with severe cellulite and this helps hide it. I also chose it because I have had breast reconstruction and experience pain under my arm with tight clothing. This halter top swimdress is very comfortable.I am 60 yrs old, 5'4" and weigh 170 lbs. The size 14 is perfect!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from In my opinion not a swim dress! Having bought a Marilyn Monroe swim dress from swimsuitsforall last year and LOVED IT, I was expecting a similar satisfaction with this suit. Not the case! This barely covered my backside and was short in the front as well. The Marilyn Monroe swimdress was long and came down to above my knee which looked nice and made me feel comfortable. I'm only 5 2", most things are long on me but not this! I felt the actual sizing was one to two sizes smaller than it's listed size. I did not feel comfortable in it so I returned it! They no longer sell the Marilyn suit or I would order it again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Very Nice Great basic black swim dress. Wish they had this in other colors. The fit is great- and the best part is it really hides my BIG hips. As such, it is really flattering and with my hour glass figure that is not easy to do. If you have hips you want to conceal- this suit is for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME!!!! Saved my Cruise. For months I've been searching for the perfect suit for a Caribbean Cruise. I'm Petite with the figure of a beach ball with DD bust. I hate the cut of traditional swim suit bottoms and love the coverage of the skirt. I tried separates with a skirt and found that the skirts were too tight and the tops left too much fabric/bulk in my tummy area. The swim dress was my final option. I'm sooo glad I ordered it. I feel pretty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from comfortable & stylish I bought this for my backyard pool and found it very comfortable with the mesh under the stomach area making it lighter and cooler. I like the flattering halter top and perfect skirt length. Only annoying thing is the skirt floats up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bigger size not a problem I was nervous about the sizing because I wear a 34E bra. Although I'm a size 12 by their sizing chart I went with a size 18 based on their info about cup size. I figured that if it fit in the bust I could take it in anywhere else. I needn't have worried because the fit is good all over, the silhouette is great and it's comfortable. Fit may be an issue for someone with a long torso. My only wish is that it gave a little more lift in the bust. But considering how it makes my tummy disappear I'm not complaining.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Classic I am 5' 3" 140 lbs with bust 38", hips 41", waist 32" and torso 63". I ordered a size 12 and though this was great for other suits on this site, this one was a tad looser, not too big to send back though. The one thing I'd say is different is the skirt. The way it is shown looks like it is more fitted, but it actually flares out quite a bit (think ice skater skirt). Otherwise, pretty suit.

BEST ANSWER: It comes down to mid-thigh without pulling it down or anythinf, but it is very fashionable. If you are insecure about your thighs (like me) I would say that this swimdress is almost perfect because the swimdress is stretchy and you can pull it down to cover your thighs fully.
