Bandeau One-Piece Swimsuit in Diamond Sketch

Bandeau One-Piece Swimsuit in Diamond Sketch is rated 2.7 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice suit I ordered the same suit in solid grey/blue and liked it so much I ordered this print too. I really like the suits, particularly that there is lingerie level support in the front and the bikini-esque back. I tend to think all swimsuits run a tad small and almost always order a 6 even though I am typically a 4 in clothing. The 6 worked great. I had to order an 8 in the solid print because that's what was left and it's a little loose. Not ideal but not a disaster either. Even though other reviewers weren't happy with the quality, they seem like they will last several seasons to me. I got them both on sale and think they are a great value.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not for the pear-shaped... I really wanted to love this suit -- but it's just not cut for my pear shape. I have wide hips, which worked well for the bottom half of this suit (coverage in the back was appropriate) except I also have a small chest. I suppose the designer assumed large hips = large boobs, because the cups are gigantic compared to what I have. The boning and lining helps, in that the bust shape is maintained, but it's pretty obvious there's not enough to fill the cups. And because the clasp is not adjustable in the back, it is loose; just doesn't work. Sad. Also, because I have curves, the sides puckered -- now that I know to look for it, you can see it happening a bit on the back photo of the model, but for me it was much more exaggerated (as is my hip-waist ratio compared to hers) and so you can see the pucker from the front. Alas!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Wanted to love, but... This suit is super cute from a distance, but the quality on the boning left a lot to be desired. Boning was just under the top layer in the cups, which made it stick out uncomfortably and remain super visible and cheap-looking. The plastic boning was also pointed—sure to poke a hole in the suit fabric sooner or later. This suit would have been much better constructed if the boning was both not as stiff and more hidden. I wanted to love it, but it's going back.
