Rated 2 out of 5 by 11305G Beautiful looking suit but NO support.
I purchased this swimsuit in the gray. It is a beautiful looking suit and visually the draping is slimming. However, I cannot believe this is a SPANX product as I found it to be lacking tremendously in regard to giving support. There was no tummy panel support and no bust support at all. As others have reported too, the bottom is loose as is the elastic on the back side. I returned it. SPANX missed the mark on this. It has the potential for being a great swimsuit. So if SPANX designers go back to the drawing board and do this suit correctly with great support, I would try it again. Very disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by MzSkin5 Whittle Waistline Draped One-Piece Bathing Suit
The material was very flimsy. It did not whittle-down anything. It puckered around my buttocks. More importantly there was absolutely NO support for my breast. The breast part had heavy pads in them, which I certainly did not need. I was expecting a Spanx tight-fitting, suck-in my BODY bathing suit. Initially, the cost of the suit was $188, which I refused to pay that amount for a bathing suit. When the cost went down to $112 on sale, I thought that I had really snagged a bargain--NOT! It simply did not meet my expectations; and I was extremely disappointed! Then, I had to pay to return the item. So, that cost me more money when I was already dissatisfied. Not likely to order online anytime soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by StephATL Very Flattering
I am 5' 6.5" 140 lbs with 32dd chest. This suite fit perfectly in a size 8. I normally wear a size 4-6 at most women's clothing stores so size up to an 8 if you are the same as me. I got it in black and liked it so much that I ordered the tribal glow as well. Its not super supportive in the stomach just enough to suck in the belly. It definitely defines the waist and the adjustable straps are awesome for a larger chested gal. I hope Spanx makes more colors of this suit next year!

This suit is so beautiful. It fits perfectly. I have a full bust and it's a very sexy. Order true to size and I would recommend this suit to everyone.

Rated 1 out of 5 by pawsclaws This suit was difficult
tThis looked like a beautiful suit. SOOO DIFFICULT TO GET INTO WITH THE CROSSBACK STRAPS. Also the suit fit except the elastic at the bottom of the bottom was loose. I returned it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jenmac Elegant and flattering
I knew I'd love this suit from the moment I saw it online. The draping is so pretty and hides my problem area, the belly. The V-neck is sexy without plunging too deep. The golden connection points at the shoulder make it feel like a Grecian toga, so elegant! I want this suit in every color. I wear a 6-8 in clothing and ordered this in a 10 (in the gray/blue, which is so rich) and it fits like a dream.

Rated 2 out of 5 by JuliaC Nice fabric and print, left odd bump.
I have waivered on returning this, and have decided it should go back for the price. I love the print. The fabric seems quality. The style is nice. The only real problem with this is that where the inside slimming liner cuts off at the pelvic area I get a little bulge. I didn't wear this in the water, but just around the house a little and as that liner slides up, the bulge moves. They need to find a way to anchor the liner at the crotch seam. For this price, I think I shouldn't find any issues with the suit.
