I adore this swimming costume - I've not had a decent one for years.
I'm 5'6, 34DD, 42” hips and chose size 14. It fits beautifully and is really flattering, the shelf inside the top of the costume also has soft triangle shaping and together do a great job of holding everything together.
The part mesh design, helps break up the design shape which is a flattering feature if you have large breasts - stops the bolster effect!
The high neck at front also means I can wear it as an active costume as well as a stylish spa day costume.
I love the cross back straps, but find it easier to get into when the are in a straight position and for me, they're overall more comfy in that configuration…I can't wait to get in the pool, I'm really happy with this purchase!
