An elegantly exotic look for distant shores and island hideaways, this bandeau one-piece swimsuit will catch every eye you wander by. Featuring a figure-flattering tummy control panel, it offers all-day comfort, both in and out of the water. Made from premium Italian microfiber, it retains its shape, dries quickly and resists fading.
Actually don't have this suit yet because I just ordered it today but I purchased the same suit in a different color that arrived yesterday.
Can't say enough about this suit. It is a struggle every time I look for a new suit that is comfortable and fits right...this was the suit. I am a size 12 and over sixty but I didn't want a suit that looked frumpy. Coverage is great and the material and patterns are beautiful.
With two new beautiful suits I am ready for the summer. And now I know where to shop when I need another. Thank you.

I'm curvy and a size 8-10. I ordered the size 8 and it fit perfectly. VERY flattering. Slimming and accentuates curves in all the right places. The only annoying thing is that the "tankini" part rides up occasionally in the water, exposing the white fabric underneath, but I was still in love with it.

Tried it on and loved it. Wore it once and hated it.
This isn't really a one piece. It is a tube top and a pretty skimpy bottom, barely held together by a layer of white mesh that reaches from the armpit to the top of the bottom.
The over layer may be anchored to the white layer at hip, but if it was, it wasn't done well because on my first wearing, the over layer would roll up, exposing the sheer white (and if I wanted to wear a bikini, I would). This was annoying but manageable, i just kept having to pull it down and make sure it was in place.
What made this suit a total failure and prompted me to return it was the fact that the sheer white layer is also very delicate, so by the end of one beach day, I had 1"+ wide runs in it. The patterned bottom you see in the picture is very low cut and sewn onto/held onto you by the white lining. If the lining falls apart or detaches from the bottoms, you'd better not move.
The look and fit of the suit are great, but I was really surprised and disappointed by the construction and by the quality of the material, especially from a brand like this and at this price point.
