5.0 The Top is the BOMB!

PROS

  • Flattering
  • High Quality
  • Attractive Design

CONS

  • clingy

BEST USES

  • At The Beach
  • Casual Swimming

I was a little leery about ordering this suit as the reviews weren't so good but I thought I would give it a try because I have a longer torso and wear usually a 16/18 size. I ordered this swimsuit for a group trip to Legoland to use at the water park and to hang out by the hotel pool afterwards. I ordered both top and bottom and expedite shipping. It got to me just in the nick of time for our trip but they sent me two tops! I was able to run to Target and got a plain black bottom thankfully (after I cried and screamed!) and they matched up great. This top is simply amazing! Its flattering and makes my stomach and torso look longer and leaner.The point of the suit hits just below my belly button so breaks up the "thick" part of my body. The neck line is VERY sexy and it could even be used as a night club shirt! I did feel that it ran a little small, mostly in the chest width so if you like a little more skin shown for tanning, order the smaller size. I personally like to cover my armpit folds and need a little more coverage up there so ordered a size up. The ONLY con is that when the material gets wet it can cling to you a little too much. Maybe if the material was a little thicker it would be perfect? Regardless, I still LOVE this suit. I am having them ship me the bottoms and will review again when I get them. Fingers crossed.

This is a cute suit, but if you have a shorter torso like me, it won't look like the model. The silver fold-down band isn't visible when I wear it, which is too bad because it's a stylish look, but I have to say I'm still pleased with the fit. I bought both pieces in a 12 - I'm 5'3" and a 38D.

3.0 Too thin

PROS

  • True to size
  • Attractive Design
  • Great fit

CONS

  • Lining Too Thin
  • Poor Quality

BEST USES

All the previous reviewers were right. I should have listened. This swim suit is amazing, but the triangular part that hangs down is a single layer of swimsuit material which makes it way too thin. The bottom edge doesn't even have a seam. That being said, the fit is great. It's true to size and the bra insert holds everything in place. It's also nice that the bottoms are a little higher cut.

I didn't notice in the photos, but there is about an inch of fabric missing from the "peplum" part-- this is fine if you're planning on using a high cut bottom, but I bought the top and was just going to use a normal bottom and it basically makes a frame for my belly button. Not flattering! I wish the peplum opening was either completely closed or wider-- an inch just seems like they ran out of fabric. I know I'm not doing a great job at describing it, but just look closely at the photo (about where the model's belly button would be) and you'll see what I mean. I guess if you use the high cut bottom, it's fine. I just thought it would be cute with a pink bottom but the weird hole prevents anything other than a black high cut. Also, I don't have a particularly long torso, but like one of the other reviewers, I wish that the top was about an inch longer. I feel like the peplum, for lack of a better word, pops out which makes me look a little hippy. Overall, I really like the idea of this suit more than I like it in reality. (for the record, I'm about 5'9" , normally a size 10, and ordered this in a 12).
