admittedly i do not love wearing bating suits, but i spent the whole day at the pool yesterday and went swimming TWICE! and felt comfortable and even cute in this suit. i wish it came in other patterns/colors i would buy them all. i've worn other swimdresses which were ok, but the inside bathing suit piece was always a little uncomfortable. this suit did not pull or poke in any weird place and i didn't feel like tearing it off as soon as i got home (translation - suit is comfy!). thank goodness for swimsuitsforall!
