Beautifully made with great attention. It's comfortable and falls beautifully. I am no Mosh or Masuimi so I was a wee bit scared to order it at first since my body shape isn't exactly close to either models displayed. I would have liked the breast area to be a bit more structured, supportive and enhancing but overall very happy to own it and wear it! (Posted on 8/27/2015)

This suit is a little bit snug, while still being forgiving. Because of the extra layers of fabric, the first layer of the suit holds everything in, while the top layer smooths everything out. There are no awkward body rolls to be seen!

I was hoping that it would hide my inner thighs a little bit more. However, I purchased the matching swim skirt so that won't be a problem.

My husband thought I looked adorable in it. This increased my confidence in it quite a bit. I look forward to wearing this on vacation. (Posted on 8/25/2015)

I've ordered this suit twice. The first time I ordered it it was great. It fit fine and lasted a while, but eventually it got a run in it right over the butt. So, I ordered a new one. I have gained some weight so I planned on ordering a large based on the size chart, but they were out of large. So I ordered an XL thinking that it might be a little big. Nope! It's actually too tight. And the quality seems to have gone down too. It feels like it's just going to fall apart. They need to adjust their sizing chart for sure. (Posted on 7/15/2015)

I love this bathing suit! I have always preferred the vintage style suits and have purchased ones from department stores that come close, but this suit is my dream come true! I am 5'1" 35-27.5-38 (very pear shaped) and this suit covers all the right places, mainly my backside :) The suit is snug, but a good snug as it hugs all my curves. I also purchased the matching swim skirt and it really completes the look and certainly makes me feel less self-conscious and more confident. I debuted my suit at a 4th of July bbq and it was a hit! I will definitely be starting a collection of pinup couture bathing suits! (Posted on 7/5/2015)

For the last 10 years, I've relied on swimsuits with two pieces, a long top and a mid thigh length skirt, to see me through summers. I have a larger bottom half, and haven't been comfortable in swimsuits since a fairly dramatic weight gain years ago. My husband finally talked me into trying this suit out, and I'm very glad I did! It's incredibly adorable, sexy, and made me feel great.

My only complaint is that, as a fairly tall woman (6ft) my chest doesn't quite fit the halter top part. I am square in the middle of the chest measurements for a 3X, but my ladies were smashed down and it took quite a but of adjusting to get them in place. Almost like there needs to be a little more material in the midsection of the suit. That said, it still looked fantastic on me! (Posted on 6/10/2015)

I am 6', wear a 34 F and typically a 12 although sometimes a 14, with plenty of smoosh in my middle. I bought the XL and it is SO FLATTERING and so cute. Definitely does right by my curves. The bodice could have been slightly more covering but it is totally workable and not too scanty. I also have a serious booty and this is a comfortable, covering cut for the bootylicious among us. Yay, love it! (Posted on 6/8/2015)

Got this a size M (34DDD, 29, 46,) n it fit like a glove! Flattens the boobies a lot which is great when swimming, hid my no abs stomach, and fit the booty amazingly, I usually have an issue with everything fitting my bottom two tight, leaving me a double bulge butt but this was just PERFECT!!! Must buy trust me you will not regret it. (Posted on 5/3/2015)
Not the right fit or suit for my tummyReview by Cori Leigh

So I read all the reviews, made my decision and even chatted with someone online but when I got the suit I thought, "This is XL?!"

It fit, snug, and in the wrong place - my midsection. If I was to buy another suit I would definetly choose a size up, although I would not select this suit for my size.

The problem is, I expected more of a lining to suck in the stomach and that just wasn't there, plus, no padding at all in the cups. Even the swim skirt just kinda made me look like I was a 1980's roller skater. That being said, if you are the long lean type, this would be super cute on you. I am more the apple pear type and I will be searching again... (Posted on 3/21/2015)

This suit got me to buy my more recent suit. It's so flattering and pretty, and it's sexy without being trashy. I've gotten a good few compliments while wearing it to the pool! The 2XL fits perfectly, (38DDD), and looks fantastic. (Posted on 12/7/2014)
Love it, but....Review by AD

I love this swim suit and waited months for it to come back into stock to buy one. However I had the same experience as 'Beware of Sizing.' I initially bought a M going on the sizing guide, but when it arrived it was way too small for me. Partly this is the design on me. Im not a curvey girl, I am more an inverted triangle shape, with little waist definition, narrow hips and big bust. I tried to exchange it but this was impossible internationally, so in the end I just bought the size L as well. It is a much better fit in the bust and waist. I would recommend going a size up if you are unsure. (Posted on 9/28/2014)

I love this suit. I went with an XL because I am a DD cup. It gave me a little room in the tummy/hip area (I wear a 10/12). It was not see through at all. It is very well made and worth the price tag. (Posted on 8/5/2014)

I have waited years buying this super cute suit and it's a great fit... except: I am tall (5'10") and flat chested (36A) It could have a longer torso and I had to buy padding to add to it because it flattened the little I have even more.
Can't wait to take it for a swim! (Posted on 6/8/2014)
Beware of SizingReview by Mandy

This is my second Bettie swimsuit, and again I absolutely luv it! It is seriously flattering, and is low maintenance (no tugging at the seams to cover your bits every time you move). My only caution is with sizing. My measurements fit very neatly within the M on the size chart, and then when I received it it was too small on me. While the sizing chart suggests sizing down if in doubt, I definitely recommend sizing up. I ordered a size L the second time, and it does fit very nicely. (I gave "service" and "Fit and Comfort" only 3 stars because they defend their size chart recommendations) As some others have mentioned, this suit does run very short in the torso. I am 5"4, and the medium gave me some serious, uncomfortable "toe". The size L ran a bit longer, so now I can move about comfortably. The suit could be improved by adding more bust support (this doesn't matter to me as I need very little support, but would matter if I did), and by double lining the back as well as the front, for a bit more opaque coverage. I have the Bettie in Black Cherry as well, and in comparison the blue fabric of the Hello Sailor is a bit thicker than the black cherry, and is more opaque in the bum area. Overall I am very pleased with this suit, now that I've found the right fit by sizing up. For a girl who LUVS the beach, but doesn't necessarily luv her naked body, this suit is a must have. Oh, to feel this gorgeous in a swimsuit! I will definitely purchase this swimsuit in more patterns once they are available in my PUG upsize.

Bought this last year (2012) and LOVE it! Darling style, amazingly supportive for my 38H rack even though it is not lined or highly constructed. I also don't find I have any issues with nipples showing through as others have reported; either it doesn't happen or I must not care. Just bought its counterpart in all blue and am very happily and pleasantly surprised and delighted that one fits so well also. You will not be is appointed with the Sailor Betty!!!

I like the suite. It's very retro and those that I have modeled it for love it. The only problem is that the top is very thin and it allows for your nipples to be show through. It needs to be just a little padded . Other than that Its great. (Posted on 12/4/2013)

My suit finally arrived (on the expected date). It fit perfectly. I'm going to sew the halter straps to the back to make regular shoulder straps, as I don't like anything tied around my neck. Other than that, I love, love, love the suit. (Posted on 12/4/2013)

...until I caved and spent the big bucks to buy myself a cute bathing suit. Shockingly, when you're wearing something you actually LIKE instead of just FIT you enjoy wearing it a lot more!

Fit me perfectly and looked ADORABLE. Big-busted ladies, the halter top means you get plenty of support, and the straps are wide enough that they don't dig into your neck. The stripes on top/dark on bottom is super flattering on basically any body type, and the cut on the bottom half is very flattering to the thighs. The halter top stayed tied and didn't loosen at all. There's some ruching around the bust, which makes it pretty forgiving if the girls get a little perky in the cold water.

You will wear this and you will look awesome, feel awesome and be awesome. Five stars. (Posted on 12/4/2013)

Best bathing suit I have ever owned. My 14 year old daughter said "Mom you look HOT!" I acutually like the fact that there is no padding in the bust, part of the reason I chose it. Only thing that would make it better is an added tummy liner. I am not a small girl (about 5'6 190lbs 38DD and super curvy) the XL fits great and is flattering in every way. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

This bathing suit gets 10/10 for style and looking so damn awesome. I was slightly disappointed that the back is unlined- it's enough coverage, but I have suits that have worn in the bottom. Fingers crossed that won't happen here. The main let down was not having more "control" in the tummy area, since most PUG items are great for whittling the waist, and there is no bust support so I end up tying the halter real tight to counteract the forces of gravity. Regardless, it is comfortable and flattering, and good coverage over my rear and hips. I wear a 16 and the XL was a good fit, though bra size is 36G I can fit everything in up top...just about.

This suit has a great construction with plenty of room for curves without leaving strange gaps. I haven't had a one piece suit in years because of my dramatic hip to waist ratio, but this suit has been a winner in fit and comfort. The leg openings hug my bottom allowing me to move through the water without tugging. Great construction. Made in the U.S.A. Super cute. (Posted on 12/4/2013)
