Women's SwimMates Colorblock Cover-up Swim Cami
This cover up has a nice shape - looking forward to wearing it in the water
I haven't worn this cover up in the water yet so I can't comment on how it will stand up to wear but it looks good. I like the thinner fabric which doesn't feel too voluminous on. I had to get a smaller size than I usually wear in order to have it fit closer to the body but once I got the right size (2 sizes down from what I would normally wear), it looked really nice.

Not good for someone with wide hips or a tummy
The contrasting band around the bottom highlighted my wide part, unfortunately. The 'V' banding at the top didn't help either because it didn't 'V' very wide. This would only look good on someone with narrow hips and broad shoulders in my opinion. My small waist was lost with all the emphasis in the wrong places.

Fantastic top layer
I bought this to go with my SwimMates underwire bikini top (which I love). It does not provide extra coverage on the top, but gives just that extra bit around the waist and hip to make me comfortable walking to and from the beach or pool. I only swam in it once, but from that can say that it dries quickly. I agree with others that it runs a little large, but I'm happy with the bit of extra room.

I love how it coordinates with the other pieces and fits great!

Cute but crazy sizing
I used to be a consistent 14 or 16 in LE, depending on the collection. This past year I have found some 14 and some 18 to fit in bottoms and size 10 in tops. I ordered this combo in the correct bra size, 36D and, based on reviews, ordered a 12 and 14 in the cover ups. The bra cup size was not even close to fitting, the cup was way too skippy but the underwire was huge. The size 12 coverup hung loose around the back, gaping open and straps were too long. If I had a bandeau in black I would try again on the coverup because it is cute. This sizing has gotten to be more difficult in recent years.

I bought this in Burgundy/Strawberry to go with the B/S bandeau top and Burgundy Orchid Floral bottoms. The combo was great. I am 5'2" and 145lb, so I'm definitely on the short side. The cami was a little long in addition to being bigger in size.

love this idea; very pretty but order down
I purchased the black/cream cami, the bikini bandeau top, and the solid black flounce skirt. This cover up cami does run loose so I did get a size down. I am normally a size 4, 34A and I got the size 2. Even then it was a TAD loose, but not much and I LOVE the idea of this whole series as well as the unique look of this particular combo. Note: the matching bikini top that goes underneath runs small in my opinion so you have to order one size up on that piece. Crazy, I know. But if you can get the sizes right it is beautiful. The cream straps on the back of this are so beautiful. I wore this at a resort in Cancun and I loved that I could take the cover up cami off to get sun on my tummy and then put it back on to get up and walk around.... I think this is why it is made a touch loose. When you're sitting in a lounge chair putting the cami back on you are thankful it is a bit loose. ;) Also, something about this white and black was so old Hollywood looking and feeling... very classy. I did not like the floral skirt they match it with so I did the solid black flounce and I thought it was much better and probably a more enduring piece style wise.

Cute top, if only it fit a little snugger
I am 5' 7", busty and a size 10/medium in all clothes. I ordered a 4 piece bikini set. The idea is brilliant. Unfortunately the suits were too small and the coverups were too big, which makes the entire experience a tad frustrating. After buying bikinis at the mall, this cami looks cute enough to keep. If only it had fit snugger, it would have been a solid 4. Had the entire ensemble worked, it would be a 5. Definitely, definitely order one size smaller than you think you need if you are looking for a swim suit like fit.

Not fit well... not flatering as you see in Ad
Think a busty woman ths may work well but on a normal size, is not very flattering.
