Polka dot plunge swim tank
Way cute, but giant bra cups!
My cup must not runneth over enough for these swim tops. I had to order up a band size since the smallest seems to be a 40C (please consider smaller band sizes for the future) and the cups were giant. Definitely seemed a cup size larger than a usual 40C Cacique bra.

Va-Va-Voom! I Love It!!
As a plus size woman it is so rare to find the total package. You want to have yourself covered in all the "wrong" places and accentuate all the "right" ones. I love this swimsuit. I received TONS of compliments. Trying to be objective..but I can't think of a con. I love that there is a REAL bra, a CACIQUE nonetheless, inserted in this. My girls were looking far superior at the pool compared to others who were droopy & flopping around. I like that this made me feel sexy & attractive, but was still PG enough to wear at a family function, etc. It definitely accenuated my curves and my waist looked super small. I love the runched side of the swim tank because it allowed me to make this a little more form fitting in the stomach area, lifted it on the side of the drawstring & added an assymetrical look that just pushed the cuteness factor over the top. I was at the pool w/ girls much smaller than me & never felt insecure because this swim tank (I purchased black bottoms) just works! It never rode up, down or moved around. Stayed in place even once I got out of the pool. Definitely earns 5 stars.

Barely cute and very poor construction
I was excited to see undwire bras. It's amazing to me that there are so many underwire bras for "normal" sizes but not plus sizes. I don't have any lane bryant stores anywhere near me so I have to order online. I've never been very impressed with the quality of them when I see them in stores but after reading all the great reviews I decided to give it a shot because of the underwire. The cups were indeed too large (and I only where Cacique bras) and the bra part felt too large as well. But the rest of it felt too tight or it should have been more ruched or had some shapewear to it. I'd rather have a cute suit with a shelf bra that only lasts a season then look like I'm falling out of the top and bulging out the bottom part. :(

This suit is amazing, FINALLY a bathing suit with a build in bra for us busty ladies! It's long, it's not skin tight, and it's flattering, it's great! The only complaint I have is that the bra seems to be a size or two bigger than what I normally wear, so I'll need to exchange it. I'm a 44 D/DD, and the 44D is gapping on me, and even when tightened in the back, is still a bit loose. I'd recommend going down a band and cup size on this one!
