A220893 - Fit 4 U Tummy Paisley Three Tier Ruffle Tankini
This was my fourth attempt to find a swimsuit and this one did not get returned. High quality, comfort, coverage, extremely cute ... This is a total winner for a long torso!!
Does nothing for the bust line
I bought this suit because...well, because it was time.
The suit is comfortable and wears well in the water; meaning that you don't feel like you're being weighed down by too much fabric.
It fits around the stomach area nicely and does not make you feel like you're wearing a rubber suit.
My complaint is that is does nothing at all for the bust area. It does not offer any support or lift whatsoever.
It's bad enough we're at the point where we need to cover up the middle with tiered ruffles, it would at least be nice to have decently supported bust line.
You shouldn't have a suit where your stomach ruffles protrude out further than your bust - that just makes you look silly. I'm an average sized in the bust area.
You need to incorporate what Maidenform has done for bathing suits; it gives the support and lift of a bra in a bathing suit top. And let's face it, if you're at the point in your life where you've graduated to a one piece or a tankini, chances are you need a little help in the bust area as well.
Overall, I'll wear it, but I won't feel as feminine as I could have if more attention were given to the bust line construction.
This is so beautiful!!
I love this tankini so much!! It makes me feel so beautiful! I wanted a tankini that hid my tummy and it does just that it is so sexy!! I love it!!
Perfect fit and very flattering
Where has this style of suit been? For years I would order suits of all shapes and sizes for the summer, only to return them all. And then the Fit 4 U Ruffle came into my sights. The fit is flattering on my women's size 18 frame and I received many compliments especially from my husband and my grown daughters!
Perfect top for me
This is the second suit of this type (three ruffles) I have purchased. I have a large frame and I wear a "smaller" D cup bra. The bra, with a little padding and the adjustable straps is perfect. The other suit had the skirtini - nice but quite billowy for swimming and aerobics. With this suit and its little brief, I resembled a "cabbage" on stilts!! (I am 5'9"). I went out and bought black swim shorts to wear with either suit and now I am happy in both of them. The ruffles are great for hiding my belly, too.
I just received this today and I love it!! Fit is great and hides what I need hidden. I did order up a size and it is perfect. I struggle with finding a suit that fits let alone flatters my very mature body. This fits the bill 100%!!!!
Great but not for the Large Busted
I ordered this suit because I have two problem areas; the tummy and the bust. It certainly does hide the tummy, I love that part! However, I ordered a size up, as they suggested, but my bust is too large. Otherwise, it would be perfect and hide exactly what I wanted to hide. I would be SO excited to get this same suit but made for the larger bust AND the tummy!
Please make it for us larger busted women? Unfortunately, it has to go back. This was the first time I tried on a suit that I didn't feel self conscious about my tummy. Very sad to have to send it back due to the bust.
This is a lovely suit,but if you have a short torso like I do, this suit is way too long. The last tier actually covers the panty altogether! Because I like the suit so much, (covers the tummy and is really cute), I'm going to have the last tier taken off. Hate to spend more money on a rather pricey suit to begin with, but the rest fits so well that I think it's worth it. Hope I like it!
Didnt work for me, but would for someone else
I'm so bummed, this is soooo cute! The pattern is sooo cute, the suit is so figure flattering. BUT!!! I have to send it back, Im in my 50's, have had 4 kids. I used to have a fabulous figure.... as I get older the "girls" seem to be growing as well as my tummy issues. The bra area of this suit is for someone with perky gals, or under a C cup (or firm ones!). I would feel foolish in front of my kids with half my top hanging, and I mean hanging lol (no support). The straps are very thin, altho adjustable, there was no adjusting to the side spill out!! PLEASE PLEASE make this exact suit for c and up cups.... if you put an underwire, and made the bra part larger with more fabric coverage, and maybe a little thicker strap this would be perfect. I got a size 14, I am a 38c, I wear size md in denim and co., and size 10 or 12 slacks. My gals are getting larger, but DEFLATING :( so if you have dense, not so big chest, but tummy issues, this suit is for you. I wanted it to work sooooo bad! Even thought maybe someone could sew thicker straps, but it still has side spillage and is just cut to low.....maybe a size 16??? wow, never wore that size before, but I just may try it if it comes back in stock..... wonder if it has more coverage? Maybe it would have more material so I could sew thicker straps on. Im telling you, this suit is so cute it would be worth it. Make this suit in the same fabric..... c cup and up,,,,, anything, its such a fabulous color, style, ect. wish I didnt have to send it back.
I received this bathing suit today and I am absolutely in love with it. My figure problem is a protruding tummy and this suit just makes it disappear, When I turn sideways all you notice is the cascading ruffles -the tummy is nowhere is sight. I did as suggested and orderd up one size and it fits very comfortably without looking too big. I hesitated because of the price, but it was worth every penny. I haven't felt this pretty or comfortable in a bathing suit in quite some time.
