Rated 5 out of 5 by kinddee Fantastic Suit for the Volumptuous Woman
I would highly recommend plus size women to consider purchasing this swimsuit. It is very flattering and the quality is great. I wear a 16W but I purchased a 3X because I wasn't sure about the sizing. It was actually too big so I had to order a 2X. The rouching is very slimming and the suit really does cover up all of of your buttox. I was very pleased with the suit.
Rated 5 out of 5 I made an account JUST to review this. This is THE BEST swim suit I've ever owned in my life. I'm normally a 22/24 but all they had was a 16/18 so I bought it anyways. It fit perfectly. Sucked me in and made my butt look fantastic! It's worth the price. I want to go back and buy another!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Kay828 Perfect!!
I had been looking online for swimsuits for a while but did not want to spend a ton of money! I came across this swimsuit and knew that I had to go to my local store and see if I could find it. With much success, I found it and tried it on. It is BEYOND perfect! Being a plus-size woman, it is hard to find something that makes you feel comfortable while also feeling stylish. I am so impressed with this product and will continue to purchase items from this brand. The price was reasonable and the swimsuit itself is very comfortable. It fits true to size as well. I am a size 16 and the 1X fits perfectly. I would definitely recommend this product! You will not be disappointed!
Rated 5 out of 5 by miastar79 Better than expected!
I am pretty impressed with this suit. Has that cute pinup look. It is very well made, and smooths everything out. I am fairly tall, 5'9", and wear a 16-18, and I ordered a 2x in black. It fits perfectly. My only complaint is that it is a pretty tight fit on the bust. I think if I can get some cups sewn in, it will help. Overall, though, it is a great suit, and I highly recommend it. I wish the polka dot one wasn't sold out, or I'd buy it too. Similar suits sell for three times the cost, so it's a great deal!
Rated 5 out of 5 by HonoluluRetroGirl I LOVE IT!!!!
I absolutely LOVE this swimsuit. I had always wanted to buy one that I swear looks almost exactly like this from a pinup clothing website. The only problem is that the other one was $90. This one is structured really well and is extremely flattering. I am 5"6, normally wear a size 16, and D cup and this did wonders for my figure. I read the other reviews and I bought this is an XL and L and in black and red. It all depends on how you want this to fit. The XL was easier to get into and the front fabric that goes straight across was not tight and went across kind of like a dress. I actually like this because it doesn't hug my stomach. The size L fits and flatters but is harder to get into and the front panel hugs across and fits a little more like a regular one piece. I don't know if this helps. The red is a bright very eye catching red. The black definitely flatters more than the red but they are both sexy!
Rated 5 out of 5 by MusicCrazy Great!!!!
I love this I got purple but it would been perfect if you have either D or DD's any bigger and it didn't fit there good and I got a 3x but besides that its great
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sgray1123 Fantastic!
Ordered a size up, as was suggested by other reviews. It fits great and is very slimming. Also, I love the retro Marilyn Monroe look. My husband thinks it's hot.
Rated 3 out of 5 by CBCGirl Thin Material
I bought the black polk a dots. It is a really cute swimsuit and it is flattering, BUT the material is VERY thin to the point of being a bit see through on the back of the suit. The front does not have this issue because it has layers of material. I did try it on first in a different color and while I didn't like that color on me the material was not thin and seemed to be a bit higher quality. So I do recommend this suit just maybe not the polk a dots or plan on wearing shorts or a cover up with it most of the time.
Rated 5 out of 5 by MamainNH Stylish!
I love this suit! The retro styling makes my curves look awesome, and the firm control fabric does its job. I'm currently nursing our son, and so my chest is...let's just say it's pretty large, and I love that the tie-back halter straps allow me to adjust for extra support. I will say that I ordered this in the teal and the polka dots, and I am returning the dots version because the fabric is different and not as supportive, even though they were the same size (2x). Assuming the other solid colors are the same material as the teal, I highly recommend buying them!
Rated 5 out of 5 by MadMae325 For once, I'm happy in a swimsuit!
I never order clothes online because I have to try hundreds of things on to get a good fit. Based on all of the other reviews I decided to give this a shot. I am SO SO glad I did! It is so flattering and it makes me feel good about myself. I typically wear a t-shirt at the pool or at the very least have a towel wrapped around myself the entire time so no one actually sees my swimsuit. I have already tried it on just to show people how good it looks. I'm ordering a second one in a different color because I'm so happy with it. I was also very happy with the shipping. I ordered it on a Saturday night and it arrived on a Wednesday afternoon.
Rated 5 out of 5 by LBW12345 Great suit! I am a larger woman with curves and this fits perfect! I recommend ordering a size larger than your normal size...it fits snug. Love the fit, love the color, love the price!
Rated 3 out of 5 by TaxiMom11 Didnt work for me...
The other reviews were mostly good, so I gave it a try. I have a longer torso, so the fit issues probably had a lot to with that. The fit was good around (im 5'8, 188).. ordered the 2x. But it wasnt long enough, the piece that hangs over the bottom of the front was a little weird, and the halter tie didnt work at all. Where the ties were attached were too far out to the sides (think near the arm pits). I liked the extra material on the front, but the butt area had too much fabric (it was hanging down..lol). The cups were too small as well. I dont have a huge chest, but youd expect a 2x girl to have more than they were giving you room for. It was worth a shot, since I cannot find a suit that I like, and it should be easy to return in-store, but didnt work out.
Rated 4 out of 5 by ajammyb Order Up a Size
Will need to order 1 or 2 sizes up from your normal size to get a good fit. I order my size and it was too tight; the fit was unflattering. It looked like it would be a nice, sexy, one-piece bathing suit that flatters the figure (any body shape, I'm an hour glass) if you get it in the right size. The shirring hides a multitude of flaws!
Rated 5 out of 5 by ShoppingSheena Great Swimsuit!
This is a great swimsuit, It usually takes me up to three weeks to find a swimsuit, i get frustrated and end up picking something that im not 100% on. i ordered this (one size up), first swimsuit try of the season and it fits perfectly i love it, I feel confident and good looking in it. Hides my belly pooch and slims me overall, covers everything and still looks attractive and fashionable. Good quality material with a sturdy build and great cut.
Rated 4 out of 5 by iluvKS My fault not suits
This truly is an attractive swimming suit ... in price and in fashion. I originally ordered it in the red color, size XL. It wasn't big enough for me in the bust so I ordered it again, this time in a 3XL (there was no 2XL available). Again, the fit was not good for me. I see it more as a fault of mine than of the suit itself. I am short (5'2") and overweight (? lbs.) making for a difficult fit under the best of circumstances. I am happy for those who were able to wear this suit.
Rated 5 out of 5 by NikML So Cute
This swimsuit is great! It looks just like other suits I've seen, but a fourth of the price. It makes me look super slime, although it is a bit tight in the chest, but I do feel well contained. It arrived promptly and the red is a great color. Over all, I think it's great!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Leigh18s Go up a size.
Seriously, listen to the reviews. I wear an 18 in dresses and 20 in pants so i bought a 2X.
I can't imagine this not fitting you in the bust either if you go up a size and are a bigger girl. I'm a 38G and I fit just fine... my husband thinks it's very sexy.
Rated 5 out of 5 by MyKidIsMyLife Gorgeous with a hint of Vintage
I bought this swimsuit because I thought it was just absolutely gorgeous, plus it looked a little vintage! I just received it this afternoon, and I gotta tell you when I put it on it fit perfect! I read the reviews, and I did buy a size bigger just so my bust would fit. I am a larger woman size 20/22, so I bought a 22/24.
I can't wait to wear it in the water and see how it holds up.
Rated 5 out of 5 by 2Anne Stunning!
This suit was for my daughter. Perfect fit, very flattering in red, covers imperfections and shows off curves. She wants a black one now and so do I. Love it!!!
Rated 3 out of 5 by crouchinggnome Cute suit bad fit!
I was really really hoping this would fit! I love retro styled anything and was hoping to add a new suit to my collection. Unfortunately, the fit was horrid for me. I'm a 38DDD so it was a bit risky trying the 16 and it didn't have underwire.
I had to return it because it looked ridiculous on me because the cup looked to be barely a C.
If you have a small enough bust that you don't need underwire. This is definitely a cute bathing suit at a great price!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Molls24 Amazing!
I bought this suit last summer, and it has held up so well!! I love it, I'm going to buy it in the other two colors as well, it is very slimming on, and it looks just like the one i was going to order from Victoria's Secret but about a quarter of the cost! I have gotten so many compliments on it! I have a hot tub at home that I get into all the time and the chlorine hasn't faded the color one bit! (I bought the black one) :)
Rated 2 out of 5 not same as first suit
I love this bathing suit in black. However when I ordered a second one in purple the straps were not in the same place as the black one. I put them up against each other and the straps on the purple one are a full two inches further back resulting in the straps being in my armpits. I really should send it back.
Rated 3 out of 5 by debbieh10 Size did not match what I usually purchase.
The name catalina says allot, it usually gives you good product for your money and will last a long time. I was so excited to hear that they still make swimsuits. The color was wonderful, and the size was way to small as what I expected. I usually can wear the size I ordered, but this one was way too small for me. Maybe I should try a larger one next time.
Rated 3 out of 5 by carolscorner60 For the price, this is a very nice suit; however, it runs small. I have to return and hope they have my size in stock. May not be able to get the next size up as the top part may be too big. Walmart has some excellent pricing on their swimsuits. It's just a matter of getting something to fit. May go to a tankini.
Rated 5 out of 5 by mrsacuna2010 love love love
I bought this suit last year in black and used it for a year until the suit came apart a little. i admit that the suit coming apart was my fault you really need to hand wash the suit like it says because it does come apart if not. i loved the suit so much that i bought another one this year in purple. i am pregnant this year so im not sure if im going to be able to use it all summer but im way excited for the new color and will hand wash this one not machine wash it so hope it works better this time :) but honestly love this suit!!!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by RegansMommy EXCELLENT!
Im a teen mom that just had a baby and this bathing suit is perfect! You can't even tell I just had a baby! its so slimming and hides everything just perfectly!!! I got it in the purple instead of black (Black is slimming) and its does a way better job and I look and feel sexy!
Rated 3 out of 5 by j113 So sad
I LOVE this suit its gorgeous and It automatically reminded me of "old Hollywood" sophistication But this suit is sadly not meant to be for us long torso ladies out there being a slimming swimsuit it is a rather tight fit to hold everything in but the back tended to roll down and I couldn't keep it up it does have molded cups but the support isn't the best for the busty gals (me going by my opinion with a 42 GGG chest) even with the halter tied up nice and tight. All in all it is a GORGEOUS suit and the misses sizes seemed to be a longer torso than the plus :/ I love it so much I just wish it would have fit better in the torso I am torn to return this.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Asanchez Best suit ever!
Love this suit in every way!
Rated 4 out of 5 by SmartlyShopping LOVE this suit!
This swimsuit is adorable, and surprisingly, it's really well made. The only thing I don't care for is the way the hem is around the upper thigh. I wish it was more of a basic swimsuit/ bikini cut. It rides really low and hugs the thighs like granny panties. It really is adorable though. It's very slimming. Do get a size bigger though. If you are in the market for a new suit, and you're a full figured lady, you should definitely get this suit. I had this and 2 other swimsuits with me on vacation and I just washed this one every night and wore it everyday. Love, love, love it! I have the teal color. I wanted black, but it was sold out. Now I'm actually quite happy it was, because this color is so pretty!
