Promising review: "The suit arrived in a timely manner, and was packaged in a plastic zip-pouch that I will be using to transport the suit when wet. The top has a connection system in the back that works just like a regular bra, so it provides clearance for weight loss/gain, which I have accepted in life as an unwavering reality for myself. The cups have adequate padding and also provide decent support for the girls.—Amber Goodson

Promising review: "The suit has a shorter torso length, but I'm okay with a little extra cleavage being shown as long as my lower half is covered. The suit is very well made and the colors are vibrant. The padding covering the breasts can easily be removed and the front is ruffled, which I love. The material is comfortable, stretchy, has strongly stitched seams, and is made from 80% nylon, 20% spandex. Overall, I really like this suit but would not recommend if you have a super long torso." —Bkrissy
