Boo hoo if you're busty!Review by LadySyn

The suit is adorable, fit like a dream except for the shelf bra. It's barely a shelf...and if you're more than a full C cup you're going to have to add support to the suit. Otherwise it's an amazing suit and I can't wait to wear it poolside! (Posted on 5/26/2016)
Super Sexy (Can has cups?)Review by Marisa

If you are ~C cup or larger, you may want to add cups to this swimsuit. I absolutely fell in love with it when I saw the pictures, so I heeded the other warnings in reviews cautioning on the top support and ordered it anyway. Fortunately, I had a bra that the bands had warn out on, and I was able to have my local dry cleaner sew the cups in for me. (Though there was a bit of a language barrier trying to explain the situation. I did eventually get it resolved. Just be as clear as possible with your request if you're like me and unable to sew the cups into the swimsuit yourself.) The difference with the cups sewn in is night and day! If you're not sure if it will be worth it, try on the suit with and without a bra (always with bottoms on so you can return it if the whole thing just doesn't cut it for you). It went from "terrible mistake" to "oh my god, who is that in the mirror" with that simple test, so I can't recommend it more. :)
I also purchased the matching swimsuit skirt. The swimsuit I got in XL, but the skirt I got in 2X. I recommend getting the skirt one size larger than the swimsuit if you have curvy hips or a notable booty. It's a great match, but it doesn't stretch as much as the suit. To top it all off, I added the red vintage style sheer hair scarf. The whole ensemble is unforgettable and even jaw-dropping.
The suit is definitely well made in terms of stitching and fabric. I have no doubt it will last. But I had to knock a heart off the fit/comfort line because I had to add my own cups from an old bra. How can there be a pinup swimsuit, in plus size at that, without cups?? The service is always top notch, but my price and value go down when I have to spend extra money to modify the outfit so much. What made the financial aspect worth it for me is that I know I'm going to be wearing this like crazy, and I know from a past purchase that this swimsuit is going to stand the test of durability.

So Very Cute!Review by Erin

This is the cutest swimsuit I've ever owned! The sizing does seem to run a bit small however, as the Marilyn I bought in the same size fits beautifully, but this one is a tad on the small side. Oh well, I have a couple of months to lose an inch or two! :) Not a huge amount of support in the bust, but worth it for just looking great! (Posted on 8/5/2014)

I absolutely love this swimsuit! The only thing I would change is that I would like more support in the bra area - big girls need support, even in our swim wear! Otherwise this is my favorite suit I have ever gotten! I will likely by others in this style. (Posted on 8/5/2014)

Allowing for the fact that I made a sizing error (I thought I clicked one size larger than I had. My fault!), the suit still fits farely well...except for the bust. I, too, must weep for the lack of built in support. I have had a child, and have much of the associated sag when I'm not wearing a properly supporting bra, so my DDs do NOT like this suit top at all. I'd already intended on restructuring it with an underwire and some swimsuit cups; interesting to see I'm not the only one with that thought. Overall, I love the suit, but the lack of support for breasts is killing it for me. (Posted on 4/27/2014)
Boyfriend loves it!Review by Rebecca

I DESPISE swimsuit season, being a large girl, but this suit is cute enough that I'm willing to give it a shot again. My boyfriend had a very strong positive response to the suit which gave me some extra confidence. I am on the wait list for the matching swim skirt that might help even more with my confidence.

I have a D cup bust and it is mashed a bit in the top. I may try adding the cups like the previous reviewer suggested. It was a bit more money than I wanted to spend, but similar sites have even higher prices.

I am glad that I bought this and so is my boyfriend! (Posted on 12/4/2013)

I just received this swimsuit and I love the flattering fit at waist and bum - but for bustier ladies, it really does need cups. I just didn't feel that there was enough support for the girls in this, and it left me looking a little droopy up top. However, an extra tenner to buy some swimsuit cups and get a seamstress to stitch them in for me, et voila! Much much better. (Posted on 12/4/2013)

I've just recieved it at home and tried it on. It fits perfectly, my body has never looked so sexier in a swimsuit. The think I like the most is the bust line, very pretty.
If you're a curvy girl I recommed it!!! (Posted on 12/4/2013)
Flattering for figures! Review by JS

I have been avoiding swimsuits for a very long time... Ok, for about the past 3 years.
My husband helped me pick out this particular suit (so you know it's cute).
I have to admit that if you are pear or apple shaped it's very flattering. It appears to be a bit short in the torso, which is OK for me, but if you have a longer torso this probably isn't for you. It took me 2 tries to get it stretched out over my figure.
I jumped around in it and my buns stayed in, and the suit didn't ride up.... So that makes me a very big fan! (Posted on 12/4/2013)
