It is nicely lined, including the bra padding (which is not overly done and can be shifted around some). The quality is as good as (and possibly better than) anything I have ever bought at Target, Walmart, and the like. If you were to buy this swim dress at a store like Macy's, it would probably cost close to $100. I love the wide adjustable straps and the drawstring at the bust. This can be used to make the top either more revealing or more conservative." —Jennifer

    Reviewer wearing the black swimdress with white piping

    Promising review: "I love this suit! Most comfortable suit I've ever owned. The front zipper makes getting it on so easy, as I have arthritis and pulling up a suit is painful at times. I swim almost daily and have bought all three colors now. I just bought the black with white zipper. The size was right on for me. The straps are comfortable, stay in place and help the top to feel secure. The fabric is thick and the suit is substantial.This fabric is different from any I have worn before. Great buy, too!" —Bonnie

    Price: $42 (available in sizes 2–24 plus and five colors)
