Rated 2 out of 5 by norcalmom Small fit, not for larger cup sizes.
I ordered an extra large knowing I probably only needed a large. It was very hard to squeeze into. My bra size is a 38 C and I felt my breasts had no where to go. The padding inside kept folding up so I took it out. I looked very flattened out and pressed down into the suit in the chest. I tried to loosen the tie but then the suit was way too low cut and I was falling out on the sides. If you have larger breasts don't order this suit. I liked that you could play with the length and rouche it up if you wanted it shorter or pull it down if you felt you wanted more coverage. Cute idea and looks great on model but not for everyone. Maybe compensate for larger breasts with a larger suit.. then it would work better.

Rated 3 out of 5 by shinejlw The swim dress was nice for the price, however uncomfortable.
Unfortunately I've undergone a breast reduction and the halter pressed too firm on my incisions, therefore making it impossible to wear. I recently returned the item for a refund. I would have ordered another style if they were not so expensive. I'm still paying for the corrective surgery from the botched reduction and can not afford most styles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Natalie20 Really cute one-piece
I have to say i was somewhat apprehensive about buying a swimsuit from Spanx but was very pleasantly surprised when I received it and put it on. I would say that this suit would look best on someone who does not need much "help". In other words, if you need to hide more than just a not very toned tummy after having a baby, I would say this suit is not going to work for you. I am a size 6, 5.9", B cup, and size Medium fits perfectly. I am looking forward to wearing it at the pool this summer.

I hate shopping for swimsuits, so I decided to go online and do it. Well, I am not disappointed. I was a little discouraged when I saw the reviews but decided to go for it anyway. I feel as though it fits the exact way I would expect it to. It brought in my love handles making me not as wide and made my belly not jiggly. I carry most of my weight in my midsection. I am 5'7 and about 180. I am so anxious to wear this suit this summer!

It was too confining and instead of hiding fat, it accentuated it. It was more like a dress than a bathing suit...I don't know how anyone could even swim in it. I was very disappointed. I'm looking for something that is comfortable, attractive, hides fatty areas.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Andie16 Cute but small
This suit is adorable but definitely order a size larger than the size chart, it also smushes my chest down so it's not very flattering up top.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Paula Not good for my hips
This swim dress was great on top. BUT, the bottom portion was tight and made my hips look bigger (the opposite of what I need). I will have to find a swim dress with a skirt that is flowing and not clingy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Komazalea Really, really small!
I am a size 0, 116 lbs, 5'7" with narrow hips (and large bust as I'm currently breastfeeding--32D). According to the size chart, a small should be BIG on me, but it was an incredible effort to get it over my hips and I worried that I would rip the suit. Once it was on, it was cutting into my hips and butt and the girls were not properly covered. I have a feeling any size might not cover a larger chest, but I'm still going to try a Medium because I've seen this suit on other women and it's adorable and completely flattering! It seems like it's really well made and of good quality, so I don't want to give up on it yet!
