My review:

I bought this swimsuit because I didn’t want to be one of those bikini wearing moms at the county pool. Not that I have anything against bikini wearing moms.  I happen to own bikinis and wear them regularly when lounging at the beach.  However, I wanted a suit that was sexy yet practical when swimming and frolicking in the water with active children.  Hands down, this suit hits the mark! I am 5’1″ and 115 pounds. I am thin, but have traditional Puerto Rican curves (small waist with wider hips and thighs) and this suit accentuates them perfectly. I usually wear a size 2 in clothes, but ordered the size 6.  Just to note, I always seem to purchase a size 6 in every bathing suit I own which includes brands like Betsey Johnson, Ed Hardy and Lucky Brand.  The size fits snugly but comfortably. It hugs me in the lower tummy area and on the sides, so there is no need to suck anything in when wearing this!  Also, the gold shimmer underneath really adds something extra to this suit.  There are subtle black twists on both sides that add a girly element, while also giving the suit additional visual interest.  There are only two negatives (and they are both not really that big a deal). The first is that once it’s wet, it’s a bit tougher to pull off than most one piece suits I have had. The second is that I just wish the straps in the back were more adjustable to give me more lift in the chest area. Otherwise, this is a great suit that is appropriate for playtime in the pool, as well as a sexy sophisticated suit that this mom can really appreciate!
