As a bigger gal, I wanted a modest bathing suit that was cute and still made me feel comfortable. This had all of the things I was looking for. It was beautiful. The blue really shines against the black. The material is well made. It's a good stretchy material but also has some hold to it so it "shapes" my body well. It fit so good when I tryed it on. I was seriously impressed with this swimsuit. I can NOT wait for summer to get here so I can spend more time in it.
