Before I had my kids, I wore those tiny swimsuits thanks to my small size. Well, lets just say kids do not make you skinny. I am 5'5", 146 lbs and I now have to deal with bulges in certain place. While I always swear to start being more active and lose some wight or at least tighten those problem areas... lets just say I keep swearing. So, I needed to find a plan B that would make me at least look not as "bulgy" (you know that stomach area just does not want to partner with me).
As a result, I bought this swimsuit online in a different shade 2 years ago. WOW! This swimsuit is THE most flattering swimsuit I owned. the front ruffle covers my stomach area, so only I know what's hiding underneath. My bust area that has never been that large looks almost Pamela Anderson like, from the back it looks like I am wearing a two piece. Everything always stays in place, I never had any wardrobe malfunction even with active kids jumping on me at the pool. I received compliments on my suit and my boobs (lol on that one). I LOVE it. I will be ordering one more in a different color.
For the record, I ordered Medium.
