I am very happy with this purchase, and am looking forward to wearing it on my trip to Hawaii next week. It is a typical rash guard fabric, which isn't the most comfortable, but can go in the water, and protects from the sun. The flamingo palms colors are great, and the cut and style of the top are great. It can be worn as a bathing suit top, or as a tank top with shorts or jeans. I'm not as crazy about the other colors it is offered in this year, but would definitely consider buying another if it is offered in a different great print next year.

This was so huge! Like maternity wear! Very unflattering ... beautiful fabric though. Nice details, very thin. If it was just properly sized and a bit more tailored it would be great. I had to return it.

So here’s the deal about rash guards: if you can’t get them on comfortably while dry, forget about it while wet!! This rash guard is the perfect combination of sunshirt/guard/swimsuit. First, it has adjustable sides. Ruching is flattering and being able to control the length is a bonus. Second, the fabric is a perfect weight. Not too thick, not too thin. Enough thickness to provide good sun protection but not too thick that it’s heavy or compressing. Also thin enough to be breathable but not sacrificing on quality. With that said, if you purchase a lighter color, it will become somewhat see through when wet. If you aren’t planning to wear a swim top underneath, might be a problem????? Another pro for this top in my opinion is the mock neck. Good coverage but not bulky or suffocating. Order a size up from your normal shirt size for a relaxed fit. Order your normal shirt size for a more fitted feel.

I really, really wanted to like this tankini. The design is adorable (blue/white/olive green), and I love the two pieces. BUT...there is something just not right about the fit. The shelf bra is very snug, and the straps are too far to the outside so they dig in. The tankini outer piece is wide under the arms, so there is a gap. It's like the two pieces are two different sizes. Also, when I tried it on, the shelf bra does not show as much as I would like. And, the back has a flaw in the design, a white narrow strip that looks like it missed the dye (which I could probably live with if everything else was perfect). My options are to move the straps on the shelf bra inward and to take the sides of the tankini in just a bit under the arms, however, for the price of the suit, I just can't justify trying to alter it. Just for reference, I am small through the shoulders and rib cage, 34B/C, and usually purchase a medium in swim tops which is what I ordered in this tankini.

This is AWESOME! Love that it's a 2-fer. I ordered XL and it fit perfect. Or close enough. I'm 5'3, 135-140 lbs (mostly in my belly & boobs - hey, whadda ya want for 51! ??), and bra size 38/40-C. The bandeau top squishes the twins pretty close together, but it looks fine & adds support. I only gave 4 stars for "overall" because the tank top pooches out a little at the armpits in the front. Not a deal breaker, though, since it's otherwise just right.

I have struggled all Summer to find a swimsuit I feel good in, I returned at least 6. In the past I'd buy two pieces because I'm 5'2" 110 pounds with an A cup and a long waist and a bit of a booty, so one pieces never fit me well, but I'm about to be in my mid 40's and I don't feel good about wearing two pieces anymore. Anyway, this suit fit like a dream, it is so light weight on, covered everything without looking like an old lady frumpy suit, it is definitely a keeper. I knocked one star off because even though the suit fits great dry, once you get it wet the sides of suit covering your bum tends to ride up, so you have to pull it down when you get out of the water, I can live with that, but it is still a bit annoying.

This suit is well made and cute, but it is unflattering in the bust. The cups separate and flatten your chest and are too small for a 32 C in the xs. I’m 5 3 and 105 and the xs fits but due to the top, I’m returning it. It has moderate coverage in the rear and might look better on a smaller breasted person.

You had better be flat chested for this top. I got the XL and could not even try it on. If you are any more than an A cup, this will so not work for you.

I received this product in white. Unless you have a six pack, avoid the white at all costs. It will also for sure be see thru when wet. Last year I got the navy and it worked great. It's comfortable and not too hot. I ordered large although I can fit into medium because I don't like it skin tight. The arms are nice and long and the zipper is good quality.

I first found this swimsuit at R.E.I and fell in love with it! But or course, it was the last one on clearance not in my size. I was so excited to find it on Zappos! I didn’t know of Zappos before hand, but I’m glad I took a leap of faith because the swimsuit is perfect! It came super fast too!!! This suit is so soft and flattering, just about anyone can feel confidant in it. (Also, you may want to size down, runs a bit large)

My teenage daughter was looking for a fashionable but effective rash guard for sun protection and is very happy with both the fit and the function of this rashguard. She is normally an XS/size 2 (about 5'3" and 110 pounds) and this fits her great.

I love his rash guard. It’s incredibly soft and the cut is very flattering. I love that you can adjust it on the sides so that it fits differently depending on how you want to wear it. I got it in the coral color and it’s beautiful.

Very pretty and well made. It can be difficult to buy tops that are stylish yet functional for swimming and this would have worked well. However it was smaller than expected, my daughter usually wears a size 2-4 and the medium was too tight.
