I ordered two suits from this brand (Catalina Suddenly Slim) because the suit I liked best was sold out in size XXL, I could only get it in an XL and I was afraid it wouldn't fit. So, I ordered this suit in a 1X as well so I would have a fall back option if the other suit was too small. I tried on the other suit first and it was snug but it fit okay. I tried this one on and OMG was it tiny?!?! It was WAY small in the bust and the waistline was extremely short (I'm a curvy 5'7"). It was also super tight. It didn't fit in any way, shape, or form. I barely got it on. If it had no tags and I was just guessing, I would've said this suit was a M/L not a 1X. This is supposed to be plus size, so I can't fathom why a 1X is smaller than an XL made by the same brand (it's even made of the same exact fabric as the other, the dark red with white polka dots). The suit is really cute, I love the vintage style, BUT order a big size or you'll be disappointed and headed for the return counter.
