I read a ton of reviews for the other "Suddenly Slim" swimsuits before choosing to order this one. A lot of the reviews were from larger sizes or previously pregnant ladies. I, being 18 and scrawny, became a little worried that it would look too much like a older woman's suit. In addition to that, I was worried it would be too short or too loose, seeings how I have an extremely long torso (I'm 5'9") and am thin (waist is probably about 26in) with a smaller chest (I wear a 32B bra). However, to save me from my scrawny and petite features is my caboose, which is pretty big for my body type.
I went ahead and rush-delivered a size small so I could get it while still at the beach. I eagerly awaited its arrival. When it finally came, I was ecstatic; it fit perfectly. The halter was great because I could adjust it to the right tightness to keep me feeling covered and supported. The length was the best a one piece has ever been on me and neither sits too low or too high.
The only slightly disappointing thing was that if you lean down with your shoulders slumped forward, the top becomes a little loose. But, even doing that, the padding covers up the important parts. This suit does not have push up padding and the halter only helps a bit, so if you're uncomfortable with your smaller-sized chest and want to push it up, this probably isn't the suit for you. This swimsuit accents curves (mostly waist, hips, and butt) so in my opinion, even if you're smaller chested (like me), your chest is not the focus point. I've pretty much come to realize that I have a little chest and that will never change, so I might as well show off my waist and caboose, which this suit accents lovely.
With the incredible quality, style, and value, this suit exceeded my expectations. I absolutely love vintage fashion and the idea of a curvy woman. I'm very, very happy with my purchase. Definitely try it; if it doesn't work out, you can always return it!
