on the whole I like it but if you're looking for something to cover you while swimming the skirt floats up so it looks more like a tutu than a skirt & the metal end things on the drawstring bang against your leg as long as you aren't sensory sensitive that's easy enough to ignore.\nThe tankini top I got with it is nice & hangs low so adds to the privacy factor a bit.
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)!
