I signed up for a beach volleyball tournament and quickly needed a suit that was going to hold me in all day. This suit was perfect. I'm usually hesitant to buy clothing items online, but saw the numerous, positive reviews for this suit and decided to give it (and Zappos) a try. I did notice however, most or all of the previous reviewers were 2-4" shorter than me and 10-20 lbs lighter. I'm 5'8", 140 lbs, and a 36C/34D. So I've got some curves and I would say I usually wear a 6 or an 8 in pants. I followed the advice and went up a few sizes, ordering both an 8 and a 10. In retrospect, I should have ordered a 10 and 12, but the 8 was too small and the 10 was pretty snug. I was hoping it would stretch some with some wear. I wore the 10 all day at the tournament and it was wonderful. It's medium rise in the back and the top stays exactly in place. No adjustments needed between each play.

Ridiculously small! Get at least 3 sizes larger than your normal. This suit may also be better suited for flat chested women, no matter the size. Why does Nike have to do this? Panty style a little antiquated, like a granny panty.

The reviews are correct, order 2-3 sizes larger than usual. My usual size is 4, the 10 fit perfectly. This is a great suit. And love Zappos return policy so I could return the original suit I ordered.

Yep, it runs small. I'm a 6 in everything else and found the 10 was perfect. Love it so much I ordered another in another color. I love that it's sporty and no-nonsense but also totally cute.

Great suit. I bought it in 3 colors. Very comfortable and supportive. I wear it surfing under my wetsuit. No ties or knots. Great for sports because it stays in place. I'm usually a size 2 but the size 6 fits me in this suit.

As stated by previous reviewers order a couple sizes larger than what you would normally wear. Otherwise, this suit fits great and stays in place during my workout.

Great suit. Runs a little small so if you're a 2, get a size 4, if you're a 4, get a 6, etc...

I took the advice of other reviewers and they are 100% correct -- go up 2 sizes on this suit! I wear a 6 in every piece of clothing I own and the 10 fit me great in this suit. It is a fabulous suit other than the sizing being so weird.

Great suit. I wear a 6 in the one piece for swimming laps and had to go up two sizes in the two piece. I don't wear this for a workout, but it fits great and doesn't fall down in the surf.

I love this suit! Everyone else is correct. I ordered a size 14 usually take a 10. The fabric is really heavy duty yet very supple.

Fits great, gets the job done. I would re-buy if I needed to make the decision again. I recommend it. I purchased it for my first tri and have transitioned from bay to bike to run it in. Works great.

Runs very small. I'm a size 6/8, bust 38D. I ordered a size 12 and it was still too small. Returning it but getting a size 16. Hopefully it works!

The suit runs small for sure! I'm 5'7'' weigh about 130, and I'm normally a size 4, the size 8 was a good fit. The bottoms have a little extra fabric in the front but the back is filled well. The top was almost too small and I'm at 34C. I really think it will stay in place wrestling my kids at the pool and watersports on the lake.

I bought this for a water aerobics class and is great mix of functional and flattering. Take the advice on the sizing from other comments shared and the suit runs small, so bump up your normal size by at least one or two. Can't wait to hit the pool!

My computer was slow when ordering this bikini, so I didn't see that everybody was saying order a size or two up. Well, it was indeed way too small. I compared the Nike size 6 bottom to a Patagonia XS bottom that fits me perfectly, and the Nike bottom was smaller by an inch on each side! I've now ordered a size 10. Haven't gotten it yet, but hope it works. I love this suit! Wish Nike would get with it on their sizing, though.

I am 5'4" 122 lbs and bought a size 6 and it is snug. Swimsuits tend to stretch so to me it's fine. Just the bottom gets a little saggy in the front. It is not a full coverage, it fits like it looks on the model. Strong material, seems durable.

Runs very small, trust the reviews! I am 5'4" approx 118-120 pounds. The 6 was too small for me. I usually wear a 2/xs. Go up at least 2 sizes, if not 3. Once you get the right fit, this is a great suit. It doesn't ride up or move around while you swim. Highly recommended but order 2 sizes and return one.

This suit is great for water aerobics classes or camping. It fits really well and stays in place with strenuous movement. It, however, does run very small. I am generally a size 8. I had to return it and ordered a 12.

I needed a swimsuit so that I could start swimming while taking a break from running due to a stress fracture. Zappos customer service pulled up a Nike size chart for me & I ordered accordingly. The top was definitely too small & I wasn't entirely comfortable with the bottoms. Went up to the next size & it fits perfectly. I've only swum in it once. I did laps & such and had no problems. Swimsuit stayed put & worked out wonderfully. Highly recommended but definitely go at least one size up when ordering.

I love this bathing suit. I wear a size six in pants and dresses, size 36C bra, and I bought a size 12 in this suit. It is extremely flattering and comfortable. The older models of this suit had higher-cut bottoms which were not flattering. The bottom of this bathing suit, however, is more low cut.

Love this suit- it’s sporty, cute and stays put- I wear a 4-6 in women's and the size 6 fits well (it’s a little tight on top for me, but for the price it’s a great value - stays on great when swimming laps - only wish it came in more colors.

Really nice swimsuit. It's the first I've bought in years that I really like. To add to earlier reviewers comments on sizing. I'd normally buy a size 8, but I went up to a size 10 to get the color I wanted, and my suit fits perfectly. So the sizing seems to run slightly small, particularly on the bottoms.

This is a great all around suit that I like so much I have it in several colors. The bottoms are on the smaller side but the pic should give you a good idea where it would fall on your torso. It is a great product that should last you a long time.

The sizing chart was not very accurate for buying this swimsuit, but it is a great performance suit. I bought this suit right before a waterskiing vacation and it was perfect. It really hugs your body, but allows a great deal of movement and flexibility. I like its sporty yet feminine look. I would buy it again and only wish it came in more colors so I could have lots of them!

So I read the reviews before I made this purchase, so I bought the suit 2 sizes bigger than I usually wear. It was still snug. I would definitely buy 3 sizes bigger than you normally wear. Other than that, great suit! And of course, Zappos rocks!
