Ocean Dream Signature Dottie Side Shirred Tankini
I ordered about a dozen suits in various sizes, as I'm hard to fit. Most of these OD suits have little or no support with their lightweight mesh bras. I've also found I didn't need to size up on any of them...if anything, I sized down to get a snugger fit with more control. This one seems a bit more supportive...maybe. I provides decent coverage too. Could be the one!
I was in a quandry because i'm a heavy set woman and i am going to hawaii soon. So i've been putting off buying a suit because i just didn't want to deal with it. But i have to otherwise i'll be just wearing an old tshirt and shorts and being unfashionable at the beach. So i read the reviews and bought it because someone mentioned that the top is a long one. And i'm soo glad i did!! The suit is comfortable, and the top is long enough to cover my belly so it isn't hanging out. And the bottom covers up the unflattering look of my upper thighs. All the while, i felt flattered and gorgeous in the suit. I was a bit worried since i tend to stay away from bright colors, but this was fantastic. the black skirt balanced out the pink top perfectly. And it had pretty good support for my chest so i still look like a woman, and not just a pink blob.
I just had a chance to wear this suit. I would not ordinarily buy this color, but glad I did. The color is complimentary, fit is great and "stayed" put while swimming. Might even get another one soon.
I have trouble finding a suit I would consider going out in public in. At 56, my body isn't great and I don't want to show it off, but I would still like to go to a pool without feeling self-conscious. I think this suit fits the bill. In the presentation, it was noted that the top was one of the longest they have, and that is great! I do like the shirring to disguise my waist/upper hip area. The top seemed a little big/loose (and I am big on top), but the bottom fit well, was cute and comfortable. The only thing that would make it better would be if you could make it an x-back, but the easily adjustable straps are great. I ordered my regular size (20) and it seems to fit well.
Swim in Style!!
I recently received this swim suit. It fits perfectly and the quality is magnificent. I have a lot of trouble finding swimwear that fits me right. Not "big here and too small there", a quality garment, and as usual, QVC is the only place to get it. Horray!! So anyone who is not sure about ordering it, do it, you won't be sorry.
This bathing suit is absolutely beautiful on. There is just something about it that looks so classy yet sexy. I bought a 10 and usually I buy a size 12 in suits but it fit perfectly, The colors are fun. Buy it you will love it.
