Women's Plus Size Beach Living Tapestry Squareneck Tankini Top
Family members said it was flattering. I wanted a looser fit at the bottom.
I am 5'2", 46, and 175 lbs. I tried this on in front of my family and they agreed that it was flattering to my figure. I was less taken with it because of its tight fit (it's designed to pull you in, which is what I look for more in a one-piece suit). I sent it back for two reasons: (1) the color I wanted to match the bottoms I purchased was not available; (2) I wanted a top that was a little bit flaired at the stomach/hips. So, a perfectly fine product, but others simply suited my personal needs better.

Nice but would have liked to know about underwire
It is a nice top. The underwire is VERY big and can be uncomfortable.

Okay, depending on intended use
Quality of material is excellent. Colors are beautiful. If you are intending to use this for sunbathing or swimming, it will be fine. But for water aerobics activities, it does not provide consistent coverage for the midriff section. I don't like the underwire, so will probably remove it.

Comfortable and good coverage
I joked with my daughters that I could do "jumping jacks" in this top :) Very comfortable, and everything "stays where it belongs" :) Sizing chart was right on.

Good quality, can't wait for vacation so I can wear it.

I ordered my usual size and the fit is amazing. I liked the fact that I can wear it comfortably out of the water as well as in the water.

Very cute top, I ordered a size up for length and room in the chest, a little loose around the bottom but still cute none the less. The pattern is concealing and the adjustable straps supportive. This is very comfortable and while I normally don't like lounging around in a suit for too long, I didn't mind wearing it all day paired with the tummy controlled swim mini and was pleased when swimming as it rarely floated up and if it did it wasn't very much, certainly not an issue. I do wish this design came in more patterns and color variety.

Nice effort, but not for me
Plus size swimwear offers women two choices on how they want to look ? 1) a sausage or 2) a tent. This particular top falls into the tent category. Although the wider shoulder straps and higher neckline are fabulous for coverage and support, the bottom half is short and shapeless. A higher waisted panty/skirt is mandatory to avoid excessive ?spillage? if you wish to cover your middle. It really should have been made available in long sizes. However, a little sewing surgery could easily turn this top into a cute bikini top, since plus size bikini tops are so difficult to find. I got the matching high waisted skirt, and it fits great. But I?m returning this suit because of the print. The tapestry print seriously does look like wallpaper. I can?t get past how much like wallpaper it looks.

Underwires buldge out the sides, cups way oversized!
I have a large bust (have to order online for swimsuits & bras), & any "soft cup" swimsuit never fits. I was a bit skeptical with an underwire suit because I have never found an underwire bra to be comfortable for large busts just because you always feel like you are "falling out" of them. Thought I would try this to see if I could at least get a suit for some kind of support. However, the cups on this are HUGE & the wires come way out on the sides & up in the middle (it's ridiculous)! According to the size cup I ordered this should have fit easily, but the wires stuck out on each side by a good inch, & right up the middle almost reached my chin! The rest of the suit seemed to fit. Plus the material has an odor to it (like some kind of rubber or something) stinks! NOT HAPPY! 1st time & last ordering from this site, wasn't thrilled to begin with with your CS decided to give it another chance, not going for 3rd round! I'm sending this back, hopefully thru the store!

There is an actual BRA in the swimsuit, so my chest was not sitting on my tummy! I wear a 38DDD & this top fits perfectly! The shoulder straps adjust, straps stay put--in & out of the water. I feel covered and pretty when I wear this. I even wore this top with the swim skirt into a few beach shops :-)
