I think it hides a full figure well with the shirring. If you have a large fanny, you might not like it, but it has built-in firming so it fits really good all over. If you get the red & white dots, the pattern hides a "plump" figure as well.

I don't think it looks awkward, but I have not seen many other suits without the shirring on the back as well. Having the shirring on the back would make this suit better since it would better cover up any imperfections or love handles, but I like it as is too. Yes, the sides look fine.

I thought it would look awkward, but it actually doesn't. I think it looks ok. The suit itself would be cuter if the shirring did run all the way around, I will say that. But overall, I think the back looks good. Good coverage.

There is no rouching on the back at all. It doesn't look bad, but I do believe the back is cut a bit too high. It would have looked so much better with a lower scooped back but it is a nice suit.

I don't know what Size I should get?

..Or if they even have my size. I wear a size 16-18 in pants and a 40D in Bras, so it's pretty obvious that I am not a skinny mini. I am thinking an XL? If they had it I'd get a 2XL just to be safe but I have been looking for a bathing suit that is make like this that isn't going to break my bank and this is the only one. I don't go to the beach often so what's the point in buying a $90 suit If I am only gonna use it 5 times Max every year? It's been 7 years since I bought a suit, I was still a size 16 in pants, but a size 30C? In bra and I had bought a size 9 which was a little big on me. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

I'm a 16/18 (edging more on the 18 lately) and a 38 DDD and I ordered an XL. It's a tad bit snug but definitely not so tight that it detracts from the suit. It really depends on how you like your suit to fit. If you want more wiggle room I'd look at the plus-sized version, but otherwise I love the look and feel of the XL on me.

I had my 3rd baby in June, have been losing weight and am about 13 lbs from my goal weight. I am 5'6 and 163 lbs. I wear a size 12-14 and chose a size large. I think it fits great, has great support in stomach area and does a fantastic job of making me look slimmer. If you're not sure, I'd probably get both a large and XL and return the one that doesn't fit as some other reviewers have done.

I don't know if this will help any, but in jr. i wear a 11/12 i ordered both the med and the lg. The med was a little too small and tight around my leg. But the lg was too big in the butt, just by a little. I was not able fit the butt out completely. The mid section helps to hold your tummy in and I like the snug fit of the med, the lg wasn't as snug on me. But I would say try the lg. Or order two sizes and take the one that oesnt fit back to the store or send back. I think it's worth it, this is a really cut suit on.

I suggest the Large, when I was a 14/16 I got the XL and the large would have been tight but I think I would have been able to get into it :^) Plus, since you are losing weight, it will fit well as you lose more weight.

By the way, I got the black with white poka-dots last month in a Medium because I reached my goal weight and a size 6/8 (mainly 8, if the cut is lose or stretches a lot then a 6 :^), and a medium fits an 8 great :^) So you go girl, keep up the weight lost, you can do it!!!

I wear a size 6 in shorts and ordered the small, and I think had I ordered the medium, it would have been to loose in the legs and would ride up. However I am not quite that large in the bust, but the bust area of the suit has the most stretch I think, compared to the stomach and leg areas. You can always order small and medium and return to store whichever does not fit...

The small should fit you fine. The bust allows for plenty of room for larger busts, but also has padding for smaller busts. Also, the halter ties at the neckline so you can adjust to make the bust cover as much as you need it to.

I'm 5'2 135 pounds, 34DD. My stomach is not flat either. The medium fits perfect!

For heaven's sake-try it on. I also ordered the red and it feels fantastic on. I can feel the tummy-tuck panel and agree with you and that is one of the reasons I bought it also.

You will feel good in this suit.

I didn't find that it was slimming. I had 2 c-sections so I understand the tummy concerns. I ordered my normal size and it's not snug as I expected. Hopefully you have better luck, it is pretty and if you just have a small tummy issue, the design will help with that. It's just not snug like I expected.

This bathing suit does camouflage the tummy area very well, just let this one flaw concerning your tummy (like we all have) encourage you to create a crunches/sit ups regimen that works for you. That's what I'm doing!!

I hope you ordered a size small--I ordered a medium and I weigh 5 lbs more than you--I returned it and ordered a small instead.

What size did you get? I'm also 5'1 and 120 lbs (with a little belly from my 2 kids) and the Medium fits great.

Dear tcpokie,

I'm 5'4 and 164 pounds, bra size 38C. I ordered the b/w dots in a Large first time round & it was too big! I have the same tummy problem after having my baby & the L size didn't provide much control since there was too much extra material in the torso area (& backside, I don't have much of one). I re-ordered in an M (it was out of stock for quite a while but finally got it) and it fits perfectly. It's rather tricky, If I were you order a S & XS then return whichever one that doesn't fit.

Hope this helps!

As far as the size, when I ordered mine, I ordered a large (5'5", 170lbs, 36C), quite different from you; however, the suit was a good fit for me. I not only have a few kids, but also have the older woman belly. The suit was great looking, even on me.

Question

I need help with sizing

Some people are saying that these suits run big so im not sure what to get. My gut tells me to get a large but they are sold out. Can anyone tell me if an XL will be too big??? I wear 12-14 pants; have big butt and legs but smaller waste and chest-38B bra. I usually have a problem covering my legs and bottom in bathing suits, it tends to spill out, will this cover everything?

Mine fits perfect. I have this in Large and wear a 9/10 in pants. Hope that helps :) It gives me full coverage in the back, and my bottom isn't super tiny either lol

Do NOT order an XL! Try a medium...you ma be surprised! Especially if you're small on top. The full coverage bottom will *hopefully* be plenty even in a medium.

Honestly from what you've said I think an XL will be too big for you. I ordered a large and it's a bit big in the bust and i'm a 38D! Granted, it's only a little big in the bust but still! For reference i'm 157 lbs and wear a 10/12 in pants.

It looks like they just got some larges back in now too!

Hope this helps!

I always buy a size up, ordered a large,but was able to exchange for med with no prob... I have bigger thighs and always feel like that is all anyone sees when i wear a swimsuit so usually only wear the boy shorts, but i really like the cut on this one. I am small chested as well and the large was way to big up top, when i bent over you could see straight down. (34A)

I have a similar problem.... the suit is made of the fabric that is supposed to help slim your tummy.. and i think that suit runs a little small, in the middle... but I am a 38C and I got an XL and the top is slightly loose on me.... I would stick with a large.

Depending on how you would like it to fit a L would probably fit, but a medium would hold everything in that much more. The XL would probably be too big.

Yes, I think this suit will be fine. I wear a size 10 pant and XL was too big, but the top part you should be able to adjust with strap

In my experience it ran true to size. I read that they ran big too, so I went to the store and tried on a medium, which was too big in the butt area ( I am lacking there). I got a small and it fit perfect, and according to the measurements that is the size I should be anyway. (I am a size 4 pants with no butt, lol) The nice thing about this is cheap shipping, and you can always do a return/exchange in the store for free so if it doesn't fit you aren't put back too much. I ended up getting 2 suits, black and aqua, both smalls and both fit great. As far as the bottom coverage, it covers the tops of your legs and thighs but doesn't go down more than a few inches. If you are bigger in the bottom area I'd try a xl, because honestly that is where I am lacking and a small did fit. A medium fit me everywhere but there. I'd get it! Such a cute suit, I love it!

You sound like you are built just like me. I got an extra large and it fits great! I don't like my suits so tight that I bulge out.

I have a shape just like you described I am a size 14 on the bottom and same size chest, I have a small waist and relatively flat stomach with large butt, hips, and thighs. I wear a medium shirt. I ordered the red in an XL because they were out of the L and it fit perfectly! I wore it yesterday to the pool for the first time and got tons of compliments. One lady even said it looked like a very expensive suit. She was shocked to hear it came from Walmart:-) I forgot to mention that I am only 5'1".

You are around my size & I purchased a Medium black polka dot. The suit fit me perfectly! Not too tight but great coverage, definitely flattened my stomach area. However I am a B36 which is quite a difference from you. There isn't much support in the top area so you might seep out a bit, if you don't mind some cleavage then your good! If you want more coverage for your girls you might want to order up a size, I can't promise the suit will fit right in other areas though :/ I say order 2 & send one back. Return is super easy & you have nothing to lose =)

Get a size large. You seem to be the same size I am and a large fits nicely. This suit tends to run small.

It sounds like you might be around my size I'm 36DD and I also wear size 10 in jeans. I ordered large and it fit great I have large hips and thighs so that part more definitive for me medium would have cut into my thighs. I followed the size chart based on my hip measurement.

I'd say you are a M or S, (definitely not a L!) a little spillage of the bust adds to the Monroe look!!! If you are still not convinced (I know the dilemma!) Order all the sizes & return what doesn't fit coz' only certain store carries them & they have been out of stock online at one point...especially size M very popular!

Hope this helps!

Hi Sam,

I usually stick with inches (they can't change from one maker to the next)

I'm fitting well into a size large with
Bust 42" (a little small over all, but workable)
Under bust 31" (a little big, but not TOO much)
Waist 30" (great fit)
Hips 38" (great fit)

Hope this helps
