I love this swimsuit! Runs small. I usually wear an 8 but had to go up to size 12 which fits perfectly. It is very slimming and shapely. It has padding in the bra, a plus. I am 5'2" and weigh 135. Definitely give this a try and go up in size. It's modest, which is what I was looking for.
I recognize I have always typically ordered swimwear in sizes that would usually be about 2-3 sizes large. I am 5'4" and 118 lbs. I usually wear a small in most clothing (anywhere from 2--6). This top in a medium just felt too snug and really compressed my chest, so I'm going to try a large.
I really wanted to like this suit, but it didn`t quite work for me and my body type. Just as a reference: I am 5'3" 125lbs, small bust and carry a little extra weight in the tum. I saw this suit and thought it would be perfect and sort of reminded me of a modest Wednesday Addams suit. I ordered the 6 initially and wow! SO SMALL. I instantly returned. Then I ordered an 8 and a 10 to try. The 8 was really small too. What the heck! I tried the 10 and although it fit fine, I didn`t find it very flattering because the body is a double layer of pretty tight material around the midsection and it just emphasized my stomach. The chest area is also sort of tight and resulted in upper back/armpit spillage. Overall, I think the suit is cute, just not for me. I wish it would have worked better, but the material has little give and is not very forgiving for us with less than toned bodies. Onto the next. Thank goodness Zappos is so awesome about returns!
This bathing suit is amazing, I can not recommend it highly enough! It is super flattering and stays in place. The dark blue is somehow a 'bright' dark blue, extremely flattering. You wouldn't think a rather conservative, one-piece would look so good but it does. I am 5'3" 115lbs 34C and I took a size 6. In street clothes I generally wear a size 4, or a size 2 with vanity-sized brands.
I am usually a 6 on bottoms. Took other reviewers advice and ordered and 8. The fit is snug, but not so much that I will size up. I feel like the 10 would be too large. That being said, I have a flat butt. If you have a bigger butt, definitely go with a 10!! I got this in navy & black. They do hold my stomach in nicely!
I love this. I got a size S (4/6) & I’m 35, 26, 36 with a pretty athletic build & a long torso. It fits quite well with the exception of a bit big in the waist (common for me with one-piece clothing) & I don’t prefer the ruched option for the leg cut (seems like it’ll be a pretty simple fix.) Otherwise I love it & it should do quite well for being in the sun & surf.
I love this wetsuit- I have a 4 year old to run after on the beach so it stays perfectly fit in all the right areas. No pulling and extremely comfortable . The fit is extremely flattering for us mamas .
In clothing I normally wear a size medium (8-10) but always seem to have to size up in a bathing suit. This suit, in a size 12, fits me perfectly. I think it is a classic looking suit with modest styling. The soft cups and shirring enhance the bust area and the fabric is heavy enough to help hide imperfections by providing a smooth look. I'm pleased with my purchase.

I'm 5'1'' and 120lbs and this bathing suite fits nicely. The material does not feel super-luxurious but it's spf 50 and that matters to me. The front and back mesh inserts are quite opaque - I was hoping for a bit more sheer look. The zipper is somewhat cumbersome to operate but I guess without it, it would be pretty difficult getting this bathing suit on.
As mentioned in previous reviews, the suit is nice, but runs really small! I would recommend ordering up 1-2 sizes. I'm 5'8" 132 lbs (with long torso) and it was SUPER snug. Will be ordering up next time.
