None of the afore mentioned reviews in my case, were accurate! I debated and lingered in getting this suit - - - SO VERY HAPPY I DID! The color is great, It fits like my seamstress made it for me, I am 5'4", 147lbs, mid 50's; used to be very athletic: track, tennis, cheerleader, etc. So I have muscular legs and rear...the bottoms fit perfect! In fact, not tight at all! So happy I ignored a poor review as seen on this suit and tried it anyway. The quality is great both in fabric and in the final product. I don't think a person can go wrong with "Carmen Marc Valvo", as his suits are normally priced on the high side! THANK YOU SWIM SUITS FOR ALL, I love this suit! Perfect for Resorts and High-end Hotels. Makes me feel young and pretty again! OH!!! BEST OF ALL...My husband flipped out over it! He said I was beautiful!
