I've ordered a lot of swimsuits over the last few months, what with swimsuit season upon us. I was looking for something that would cover me up a little more than previous ones I chose, as I don't want to use sunscreen everywhere ALL the time. I used the size guide pictured above and the suit fits me fine when it is dry, but is a little lose when it is wet (have only worn it once so far). I wear a size 14-16 and got the XXL as I have wider hips than the top. It still works great though. I like that chest are covered and that the back hardware stays put. I thought I would remove the removable pads, as many time they are not in the right spot or they are too much. But they actually complemented the suit very well and stay in the right place. Overall, this product will work well for our long days at the splash pads and pool.
