I bought this suit at the end of swimsuit season while it was on sale. I love the colors in it and was drawn to the interesting style and pattern. I usually wear a size 8 in clothes, but in the past I have bought swimwear in size 10 because I don't like anything too tight where it might show bulges. So I bought a 10 in this suit, and it fits perfectly. I know that some reviewers wrote that the cut of the suit creates weird issues in the breast area, but I am an average size in breast, waist and hip, so I didn't experience any of that when I tried this on. I think, though, if you are top-heavy, this suits might not be very flattering. Though I haven't worn it out yet because the summer season is past and I can't attest to its longevity, I'm happy I got it and look forward to wearing it next year. At the price I paid, I don't regret buying it, that's for sure!
