I am so happy with this tankini! I am heading toward 40 and my girls have sunk a bit, making it really challenging to find a style that actually fits and is flattering. So many styles seem to only work for younger women and teenagers. This is adorable and the fit is perfect. I ordered a size 10. I am 5'7", 150 pounds, and wear a 38 B/C (depending on the brand).

I like the bust of this suit. There was nice support and coverage. However, the bottom is a-line skirt-ish and flared out unattractively and is also too short. I am 5'9" 130 lbs and ordered a 6. This definitely is not going to work for me.

Overall: I am really enjoying this tankini. I have been so self conscious about my body that I haven't worn a swimsuit in over 8 years. This swimsuit is very flattering and comfortable and comes at a decent price. Quality: I like the durable, adjustable straps. There is no underwire but the seam and swimsuit design overall offers a lot of support -- especially the thicker straps. It has SPF protection and doesn't rub or "bite" anywhere. Some swimsuit tops itch or pinch and this one feels very comfortable and soft. It's not too thick of a material but it definitely feels sturdier than a lot of other swimsuits. Comfort: Very comfortable. It doesn't hug the body in unflattering places, allows for movement, and you can swim in it without worrying about it sliding down in the wrong places. It's rather soft. Style/Looks: one thing to take note of is that the bottom flares out more than shown in the image above. This is ideal if you have a petite body like me, and I was surprisingly pleased for what it did for my petite frame but I do not suggest this tankini for anyone tall. Also, the purple in the photo is not the same as the actual bathing suit. The image shown is more magenta/has a pink undertone and the suit is vibrant but more of a true purple in person. I like the twist around the chest. It's simple but adds a touch of style-otherwise it would be very boring and simple. The only thing I'd really like to see is more colors and maybe some patterns? I am very satisfied with the purple one that I purchased but I would have liked to see coral or teal and maybe some fun patterns but I really have no complaints. The only complaint I could see anyone having is someone with a "long and lean" frame purchasing this thinking it will look like the image only to find that the bottom skirts out more than one would think. It also seems that the sizes run a little small. I went a size above what I typically am and found that it fits like other brands of suits I've tried in sizes smaller than this one. I'm very surprised that after trying on dozens of bathing suits and hating them all, I'd find one I love online without being able to try it on first. I would also like to thank Zappos for their incredibly quick shipping and excellent customer service. I would recommend this suit and am very happy with my purchase.

The approach of menopause made my usual bikini impossible but this was a good alternative. I found the top to be supportive (32dd), long enough for coverage and it flared the slightest bit which was perfect for my mid-life belly. It paired nicely with bottoms from another suit I already had. I recommend it.

I am not a spring chicken any more but still have a slim build. Wanted a two piece that fits like a one piece. This was exactly what I wanted. It fits just like the photo. Bought a second one in black.

I love this tankini! I'm 5'9, 170 lbs, have a large C cup and a long torso. I ordered a size 14. It gives amazing support and fits perfectly. My 10 year old daughter (who has an opinion about everything) told me that I've never looked better in a swimming suit! I highly recommend this tankini!

I love this suit and have it in black. I just ordered the navy top since I got paint on my black top last year. I also have the black high cut bottoms from my original purchase and plan to use the blue top with the black bottom. I like this suit, the fit is really comfortable, the waist of the top flairs a bit and does not cling to the belly which is nice and flattering over all. The straps can be tightened enough to not slip at all, even if I'm doing laps. It is a true classic, indeed! Sadly neither Zappos or TYR carry the same high cut bottoms I have, since I do not think the swim skirt accentuates the hips/legs kindly... but maybe you can figure something out or they will introduce new ones in 2013.

Brands I'd also recommend: Keen, Sherpani, Eagle Creek, Blundstone

Love this item, fits well, though I do wear a bra underneath it as my DD figure seemed to want a bit more support. I like the way the body doesn't cling, but flatters. Accompanying Tyr swim skort is great. A bit short, but flattering and comfortable, despite my being a full figured mama!

Very comfortable and nicely fitting tankini top. Length is just right and bra area is not too bulky. Love the black, I bought it to go with blue bottoms.

Love this suit! I wanted a suit that would be appropriate to be around my teenage boys and their friends, as well as my friends on a boat. The top is very attractive, without exposing too much. It stays in place, and the adjustable back straps make it easy to get the right fit. Works great for the beach, pool, boating, or even something more active like paddle boarding. This was my first experience with TYR, and I love it.

I love this top...classy, cute and perfect! The minute I put it on I knew it was a keeper, very comfortable fit, flatters my tummy too. I've had multiple back surgeries and am self-conscious in a bathing suit; however, I feel pretty when I wear this tankini top.

This is a great suit! I'm usually a medium/size 10 & that's what I ordered. I found it very comfy & it has "proper" coverage - an all around good fit.

I love this top! It is extremely flattering. I bought it and the Tyre halter at the same time, thinking that I'd prefer the halter based on looks. Boy, was I wrong. This is so comfortable, flattering, and supportive. I did exchange it for a smaller size, but didn't have to look any further.

This tankini is pretty awesome! The bottom flares out a little bit so it's more flattering and it doesn't roll up! And it's true that the padding does not show through the suit as promised.

I liked this tankini but the color didn't match the black TYR skort that I bought. So I had to send it back for a different color.

I really like this top! I'm "full size" on top, so getting a suit that supports but is still comfortable to swim in isn't easy. I love this one. I bought the bottoms separate, about a month a part, but they match in color (black) perfectly. I have sent back two other suits to two other companies. This one I'll keep.

This is a very comfortable and flattering bathing top. I am well-endowed and was afraid that it wouldn't "suit" my figure, but it's perfect! Bought it along with the skirt bottom.

Nice fitting top. Stylish but with good coverage. I missed the description about the flared bottom, and I don't care for that. However, the top looks so good I will keep it.

This tank fit perfectly (I ordered a size 16 and I usually wear a 14/16, or a Lg/XL size). The straps are nice and wide and very comfortable, and what I really liked about this top was that it was nice and long. Had good support as well. Overall I'd highly recommend it!

After spending an hour or so in a department store dressing room trying on suits I finally discovered my true swimsuit size, which made it easier to order here. I wear a size 6 pants, I'm 5'8" 133lbs, D cup, I run about 4 days a week and have built up muscle from that as far as my weight goes if it helps anyone with a comparison and deciding sizes. I'm mid thirties and have kids that I take to the pool, I wanted a one piece, or something that covered my mid section. I'm tall, and at the department store the one pieces needed to have a little more length, so I need 2 separate pieces. I bought this top, and the solid high waist bottom from TYR in a size 10. The top fits comfortable around my rib cage without being too tight, or too lose. The straps are wide, comfortable, and adjustable. The cups are soft cup and I was worried about that, but they hold my D cup perfectly with no spillage anywhere, above or below. I'm less into cleavage when I'm at a public pool, this holds everything in with just a small hint of minimal cleavage if I bend down. As others have said, it does flare a little, but it's not a crazy amount of flare and I actually like it, it's subtle. It's the perfect top and I am so happy I found my size!

Excellent bathing suit top! It can double as a work-out top in the gym. Versatile, supportive, stylish, and comfortable. I am a 0 in clothes and this works on me, and a friend that wears size 4.
