As a mom to 3, my lower abdomen is my problem area on my body - this suit covers it, but also still lets me feel sexy with the side cut outs. I am 5'6"and 140lbs and the small fit me perfect! It's a one piece suit, but my husband was drooling over me when I had this on. I can't wait to wear this at the next get together, so I can feel as confident as other women who wear 2 piece bikinis. I only wish it came in more colors, as I would buy them in a heartbeat!
