I wear a size 22 and typically gravitate to skirted swimsuits that cover my hips/bottom. However, I loved the look of this suit from the first time I saw it. When it finally became available in my size, I just had to try it. I've tried on more suits than I can count this summer, and this is definitely one of my two favorites. It's just snug enough to feel slimming and stay in place without being so tight it that becomes impossible to get in/out of. I love both the way it looks and the way it feels!
