    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
