I’m short and thick to be specific I’m 5’2” and like 150lb and I feel soooo comfortable. Enough said!
The suit was high-quality & fit well. I was under the impression from the photos that it was more of a green tone. The steel blue and this style on my body left me feeling a little too underwhelmed for the price tag. I easily exchanged it for a different style and am very happy with what I ended up with!
I just don't know. I want a sexy and modest suit that I can wear for light lap swimming and when I hang with friends at the beach. I'm 5'6, 140lbs and a 36B cup. I'm normally a 6 in reformation and jcrew. My build is pretty average with a little extra butt. I wanted a suit for a long torso because they can sometimes feel tight. I ordered a medium. The actual cut is very flattering and pretty but I can't get the top portion of the laces tight enough on my own to situate it high on my body. If I tighten solo the neckline hangs too low. I'm sure they're made for it, but stretching the straps each time to put the suit up around my shoulders feels like a lot of strain on the fabric. It's not like putting on a normal one piece because you have to wriggle the top part up. I've worn it once to the gym pool. I went in the chlorine hot tub and the salt water pool. I carefully rinsed out the bathing suit afterward. I don't know if it's from pulling the straps on or the water but the area where the straps meet the neckline is already faded and looks a little pulled. The actual color and pattern of the bathing suit are great. the blue feels like a dusty grey peacock color, it leans more green against the white stripe. I love the inset sides. The thin cups provided sit great but I tried putting in foam pads (which I like to do for fun sometimes) and the sewn-in bra base sits really low on me so the pads fall way lower than my boobs. Can't fake anything in this suit, hee. You can see the total attention to quality in the way this suit is made. It does feel worth the money in construction and detail. It just doesn't seem to work for me. Maybe a style with different straps would have been better for me. Maybe I should have ordered a large. I admire this suit but I wish I hadn't tried swimming in it and returned.
Not great for DD+
I bought this for my 13 yr old daughter because we couldn't find anything cute and modest in stores. It was a little pricey but appears worth it. It is such a cute suit! The stripes hit just right. Very flattering, modest and seems well made. I'm thrilled she has a suit not cut up and down to there, that she feels is cool!
