Happy Customer: “I’m kinda crying right now, because this is the first swimsuit I’ve bought in 16 years that actually fit me in the cups. I’ve spent years settling for bikini tops that I was spilling out of the tops of. I wear a 40g bra and finding tops in my size is really difficult. I ordered the 40G and it fits perfectly. I normally also have difficulty with plus size bottoms, I’m plus size but apple shaped (narrow hips,thighs, and butt. Most plus size bottoms are too wide in the legs and I constantly have to worry about flashing my privates at the pool. These bikini bottoms are perfect, I’m covered where I need to be covered.”

Happy Customer: “Comfortable and ‘different’ dress for casual wear. It’s a bit longer than other active dresses and, for me, too long for the tennis court. I was concerned about the placement of the bows and if they’d hit at an awkward spot, but they’re fine and a nice accent. I did size up one size to ensure it wasn’t too snug through the midsection and I’m glad I did — if you like things more tight fitting, I’d say TTS.”
