The only problem I have is that the padding in the top is a little weird, and you can see the outline of the pads when wearing it. But, this is not a deal breaker for me. Hope this helps anyone considering the purchase!" —Torian

I'm super excited!! The colors are vibrant and the suit is well-made. I have no issues with the black tank either; it's the perfect length. We are staying in a beach house that has a sand volleyball court on the property so this will be perfect for swimming or volleyball!!" —jeannie

Some of the stitching around the zipper I will need to fix because it’s coming undone. I was pleased with the overall quality though for the price. It’s a fairly thick material. Had five friends ask where I got it! :)" —Danielle

    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

    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. The top is small for me, which I expected — the girls are a little squished, but I’m going to rock it." —Grace T3

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99 (available in sizes S-XL and in nine colors).
