I love the bathing suit, but I needed a larger size... an 18 or a 20 would be wonderful. I do wish this came larger.

So cute in the picture, but the fit was odd - like the top should have been sold as 'irregular'. I'm active at the beach and need a suit that forms to my body. The top would work if you are just planning on lying on a towel.
This top is very cute in person, and I liked that it was reversible. However, as soon as I tried it on and tried to adjust one of the shoulder straps, it snapped off! I tried to be extra gentle and adjust the other strap, and it snapped off as well. The bottoms that I ordered of the same brand fit well and seem to be holding up just fine, so maybe I just happened to get a top with a shotty sewing job. Either way, I will be returning it. I would consider keeping it and sewing the straps back on if it hadn't been for the cost. For that price, I would expect better quality.
If the weather’s heating up or you’re planning a vacation, the perfect swimsuit will be at the top of your must-have list. Those who swim regularly know that swimsuits are year-round essentials. Choose the one that’s right for you, and make a splash!
Swimsuit season evokes fond memories of splashing in the waves and basking in the sun, but for some women, it also brings on the anxiety of hitting the beach with a less than perfect figure. Well, fear not! There are women’s swimsuits for every body type. Here are a few tips for successful shopping for all shapes...
Bigger on the bottom: If you’ve got a bottom-heavy silhouette, chose a one-piece style with a playful skirted hem.
Large on top: A swimsuit with built-in underwire gives the large-busted gal the lift and support she needs. A halter-style top that ties at the neck allows you to customize the fit. Wide straps provide comfort and support. Check out figure-flattering styles from Tommy Bahama®.
Small on top: Those less generously endowed can hit the beach feeling confidently cute in a bathing suit that features a ruched or ruffled top. Many swimsuits also offer padded cups. Opt for a demi-style top. Guess™ swimsuits are both flattering and on trend.
Long torso: The sexy and modern monokini provides a flattering fit. Traditional bikinis and tankinis are also great choices.
Short legs or torso: Lengthen your leg-line with a swimsuit that is cut high on the thigh. A solid bottom with a printed top creates the illusion of height.
Not so curvy: Make your waistline more prominent with a belted one-piece suit. Chose bikinis or one-piece suits that are cut high on the thigh.
Plus size: Opt for a one-piece suit or tankini in darker colors. A plus size swimsuit with built-in underwire and crisscrossing straps will provide the support you’re looking for.
Pregnant: Your best option is a tankini, specially designed for moms-to-be, that will accommodate your growing belly and look chic all season long. Check out fabulous maternity swimsuits from Belabumbum™.
Don’t forget, swim separates give you the option of getting just the right size for the top and bottom. Throw on a cover-up, like a sarong or sheer pullover, to complete that poolside-diva look.
Men have plenty of options too. Board shorts take you from the beach to the boardwalk in style. Brands like Volcom®, Oakley® and Diesel® offer an array of colors and prints to suit your style. Speedo® and TYR® offer men’s swimsuits that are perfect for training. If your summer plans include surfing, check out the great selection from Reef™, Fox™ and Hurley™.
