MiraclesuitŪ Sanibel one piece swimsuit
really cute, but not great for tall people
Pro: VERY CUTE! makes my breasts look nice and gives me a nice waist.
Con: definitely not long enough for my torso. I'm 5'10', so I'm a bit taller than the average LBer. because it's not long enough for my torso, the straps dig deep into the shoulders which can hurt pretty badly after a couple of hours. also, there isn't actually enough fabric to actual cover my torso, so I have to hike up the bottom to make the bra's underwires sit in the right place. but, they always falls down, dragging my breasts with them. also, if I swim with any speed at all, the chest of the swimsuit gets pulled down (this is worsened by the fact that the straps are so far out, and don't do a good job of holding up the fabric on the chest).
consensus: buy this for looking cute/tanning, but not for actual swimming, especially if you're tall!

beautiful suit, but not right for a small bust
I was super excited to get this suit. I put it on, and it fits everywhere but my bust. I am a 40C, and there is way too much room left in the bust area.

BEST SUIT EVER!
Love this suit. Never in my life have i ordered a bathing suit online. usually i end up trying on suit after suit in the store and leaving with one that fits but i hate how it looks. This suit fits beautifully, not too short in the torso area which tends to be and issue with cheaper suits. also this suit is high enough in the back that it supports the girls while it hides the back fat... Just and awesome suit!

Great suit if you have a large chest!
I just bought this suit last weekend and LOVE it!! I tried several of the miraclesuits on in the store and from reading reviews I knew to go up a size from what I normally wear. In pants I am a size 20 (leaning towards an 18), I wear a 40H bra and in shirts I can fit in an 18/20 but normally buy a 22/24 because I like my shirts loose fitting.
I bought the suit in a size 22 and it fit beautifully. I tried on the 20 and while it made my tummy area much flatter (I have 3 kids w/ 2 c-sections) it squished my boobs together too much and gave me that muffin top look. So I went up the size and it still looked great on me, the nice thing is b/c the straps are a modified halter style (don't tie around the neck but cut along the sides like a halter) they lifted my boobs up wonderfully and kept the girls where they are supposed to be. The fit around the leg area was great and it didn't cut into my legs and it isn't cut at an awkward place to "chop up" my legs. I am 5'5" and very short waisted and have short legs and this suit helped me look longer. I plan on ordering the black swim skirt from LB online that is the skirt only to wear with it (no built in panty) as I like my upper thighs to be covered.
This is the most money I have ever spent on a bathing suit in 30+ years, but decided it was worth it to get a suit that looked and felt good on me. I got mine during the 40% off sale so the price was more manageable. I am hoping this suit lasts me for several years (my cheap ones would only last about one season before losing their elasticity and any support they might have had).
