I HATE wearing a swim suit in public but I am going on a cruise to a tropical setting so I thought I'd try this swim tee. I got the short bike shorts to go with it. When I tried it on, I loved it. It hid my worst flaws (flabby arms and stomach) and looked stylish. I now have the confidence to go sit out on the cruise ship pool deck and enjoy myself! I especially like the fact that this tee has a pattern to it. The pattern helps hide flaws too.
