The color of summer is a soft coral or salmon color which this bathing suit expresses perfectly! The black bottoms contrast the top portion of the suit and brings out the beautiful salmon color outstandingly. This bathing suit has every great feature I was looking for in a one piece suit. The zip up in the back makes it nice and snug so I do not have to worry about any loose material. The zipper is also a very fine gold color which goes with the whole design nicely. The last great feature is the tie in the back which gives the bathing suit a whole new look and feel. Brings the simplicity level to a cute, sweet and feminine look. Great bathing suit all the way around from color, style, and design!
