    Promising review: "First of all, I never write reviews but this suit is beyond amazing, so I felt like I needed to share! I hate swimsuits, hate shopping for them, and especially hate putting them on. This is by far the most comfortable and adorable suit I have ever put on. I am in love! I sized up and it fits perfectly! I am a mom of three little ones, so I am constantly running around in a suit, and this stays put and as I mentioned before, it is so comfortable. I want it in all the colors now!!!" —Michael A. Byrd

    Promising review: "Love the suit. I prefer high-waisted suits these days. Bottoms fit well, top was a bit loose, but, really, who is the same size on bottom and top? I may just buy another suit a size down for the top cause it's so cheap." —BRITNEY M CHILD

    Promising review: "This suit is so cute. I ordered a large based on the reviews and it fits perfectly. I am a size 8, 5’6” and 34DD. The bottoms hit me in all the right places and the whole suit is so comfy. It’s thick and feels more expensive than it really is.

    Promising review: "I love this bikini! The material is great, the sizing is good, and the shipping was quick. It arrived a day sooner than it was supposed to.

    Promising review: "I'm so happy with this purchase! It's so hard to find good quality bathing suits in bigger sizes, and this one is so cute and flattering. I was really nervous about the top because I'm a DDD cup. Most bathing suit tops even in plus sizes are too small for me. I'm happy to report that this top fit very well. It has pretty decent support and the straps are adjustable as well. I would love to order other colors now that I know it fits so well." —shabbychicsteph

    Promising review: "OMG y'all! I am so much in love with this suit that I'm ordering more! I am a chunky monkey and love my curves and I ordered a 2X just to be sure! It fit perfectly everywhere! The bottom wasn't too tight, just right. The top of course is my favorite and the straps unhook in the back too cause I don't care for tan lines! This is one of very few two-pieces I wear and let me tell ya it's beyond perfect and I get so many compliments! Great buy, do it!!" —Nina

    Promising review: "OK so if I do a review that means I am pretty much satisfied; it fits really well!! But I do need to take in the bottoms a little cause it sags in the waist area (I have a small waist). Quality is awesome, stretches well. So cute 🙌🏽🙌🏽 Came on time, no smell, clean, no rips or tears.🤗" —Vanessa
