This bathing suit is so adorable and so well made. It's difficult to tell in the pictures, but the material is thicker than I expected. It is lightweight and stretchy, but not so lightweight and stretchy that it sags or accentuates any negatives. Also, the material is ribbed which gives it a little texture. I really like it. The cut and quality of the suit, along with the the lightly padded cups, give a very smooth appearance that really flatters my figure. It hugs my body in all the right places. I also love the low cut back. It's a simple suit, but it was done right, and that makes all the difference in the world. Excellent piece. I absolutely love it!
