I purchased this bikini because I wanted something that stayed in place and covered a little more than the average bikini without looking like a grandma. I am very muscular and this bikini looks great on me. I normally wear a size small but reader reviews said it ran small so I ordered a medium. Fits perfectly! I am 5"5 and 132lbs (muscular) size c chest.
I followed other reviews and the top is small compared to the bottom which is how I'm built so it fits well. I'm 120lbs and 5'1". I feel like the bottoms do have some high rise to the back. My only complaint is I bought the navy and light blue set. The picture shows that one half of the top is navy and the other half is light blue but unless I'm supposed to flip it in a way that I dont know about both sides are navy or light blue, cant do 1 triangle a different color. Still pretty and great for the price.
First off, I will give you the sizing specifics as that's what is really important. I read so many conflicting reviews on sizing. Some said go down a size, some said it's a true fit. So I'm going to tell you about my body size (gasp!) and how the suit fits on it.
Hide your husbands, ladies.
I am 5'5 and a fluctuating 127 to 130 lbs. Sometimes to 132 if there's cheesecake involved.
I wear a 36B, have a 26-27in waist and typically wear a size 4 pants and size small tops. I'm typical pear shape in that I'm ALL thighs and butt.
After checking the sizing info and reviews, I ordered a size medium.
I knew that it would be big in the top and possibly a little snug in the bottoms. I've been down this road before with my body type!
Super glad I went with the medium. The top is a little big but a round in the washing machine on cold tightened it up. The bottoms fit perfectly, if not a touch big before they went in the wash.
The drawstring is great as I can tighten the bottoms in the pool so they don't slide down but then loosen them before I get out of the pool.
If you have a pear shaped body like I do, I would order your true size. The drawstring really helps if the bottoms are big. And after a wash and just a month or so of actual pool use, the suit will form more to your body.
It's a great suit. Holds up well after daily 1+ hour swims. No fading, no pulling or pilling. Will definitely order another one when necessary!
This bikini is exactly what I was expecting it to be - the triangles are just the right size and the bottoms have good coverage. I don't feel like I have too much skin showing wearing this. It is comfortable and has decent stretch to it. I love the color, it's just as pictured. The ties on the side are a good length as well, I had plenty of fabric to tie the sides comfortably. I would definitely recommend this and would order again.
I LOVE the top! I ordered an extra large to make sure to cover my bust. I'm 5'10", a 34DDD and 155 lbs. Unfortunately the bottoms were too lose. I inquired if I could return the bottoms for a large size but no go, bikini sold as a set. I love the style so much though and luckily I have a navy blue bottom already that will match with this. Great top coverage boob coverage, no side or underboob! :)
I am writing this review because I was nervous to order a swim suit online for the fear I would get the wrong size of it wouldn't fit.
I am 5'7" and weigh about 155lbs. I wanted a 2 piece for the gym that was gym appropiate. This swim suit is awesome! I ordered a large and it fits perfect. You can also adjust the waistband on the bottoms. The top is not too tight and not too loose, would be nice if you could adjust but it's not a huge deal. Love this swim suit way more than a one piece.
