I love this black and white polka-dot bathing suit! It's been a a couple years since I've bought a new swim suit. I've gained a few lbs and no longer felt confident in my old swim suits. When my family decided last minute that we were all going to the beach I was a bit worried about how I would look. This swim suit was a perfect combination of fun, sexy, and a great price. I felt like I looked good, and this bathing suit was really comfortable. As a chesty girl the wider strap halter top was great! It didn't pull, rub, or cut into my neck like many other halters I've worn. The suit is what holds you up, not the straps. I didn't have to constantly adjust the suit to make sure my curves weren't hanging out. Everything stayed in place nicely. In addition to the suit staying in place on my body, I really liked that the bust pads were sown in; unlike the removable foam pads that you have to wrestle with every time you put it on. This suit accentuated my curves in the right places, but made my waist look small and my tummy look flat. The design of the suit is very flattering for many different shapes. My Mom and cousin liked my new swim suit so much that they both got one in different colors. I used this suit every day at the beach and in the pool, and it held up great. No stretching, or loosing shape. In my opinion this swim suit is a great buy. And this 200 lbs. lady felt like a bombshell, even next to her size 4 and size 6 sisters.
This is by far the best bathing suit I've had in years (that's well over 60 years!) It meets all of my desired needs: shaping, fit, and best of all the tie-back closure. When I am exercisting, other bathing suits have straps that fall down. Others have a hook closure which I can't use if no one is around when I need help. And the zebra-like top and black bottom are really attractive.\nI went back to the store to get a second one (for when the first one wears out) but they didn't have the size I needed. Now I've found it on line but it says \"Out of Stock Online\". I'd buy another one in a split second if I could find it in my size (16)!
