About Me Practical, Stylish
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).
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Love the design of this top. Elegant and sexy at the same time.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
