Great skirted bottom -- much like a tennis
skirt, flirty swirl, very fitted brief, legs cut high enough for comfort when moving. I ordered the Size 12 -- it is a bit too small (I wear 10's in skirts
, NYDJ jeans
, have muscular hourglass figure, 5'7", 145 pounds. I am returning this to go up one size to the 14. The old rule applies -- swimming suits for some reason are sized 1-3 sizes too small (if one wants to breathe! and if one does not want the brief cutting into one's legs!). So the lesson is learned again, despite the size chart
. I simply cannot tolerate things that are too tight, although the look is acceptable. So if you are strong and your strength is in your thighs, consider going up two sizes. Overall this is a quality product. The fabric is first class, the construction is detailed and well finished. This is a well-made, well-designed skirted bottom that allows one so much flexibility when boating, walking the beaches, even wind surfing. The price is fair for the excellent quality. This skirted bottom also allows one to wear many different kinds of tops. For sports I will used a tight fitting racer back running
top, for boating I will use a string bikini
top with a cover up, and a tankini
also works very well. This is lady-like yet still very flattering. Thank You Zappos once again for carrying a quality product. I also appreciate that Zappos is still stocking swimming/boating/surfing wear this far into the summer. Many of us need replacements -- and the water season does not end in June! Thank you!
