Nice shape design but saggy and loose on
Liked the simple yet elegant shape of this suit but feel the material is way too thin and flimsy. I'm a size 12 but feel I should have got a size smaller as the suit is rather baggy on. I would return it and size down but I've already used it. When in contact with water I'd say it does crinkle rather strangely which makes it looks very saggy on the form. A bit like an old swim suit that looks like it has lost all its stretch. I was expecting something a lot more supportive than this and a little bit more sophisticated. The main thing I like is the silhouette design and straps but other than that I was not hugely impressed for the price, I was definitely expecting something better. I've not been disappointed in SB clothes before but this was not so hot :-(

Flattering and supports bust
I bought this today and immediately loved it. The material is good quality and doesnt dig in anywhere. It slso supports my bust well. I feel a bit overweight post pregnancy but this cosy is very flattering. I tried other ones from other shops before this one and they just werent the same quality. I also want to thank the staff in Hampstead Sweaty Betty who were all so helpful.
Only one wish : could 'sweaty betty' do a similar flattering bikini with bottoms that are a bit bigger than the current range.

Colour looks faded when wet
I like the style but the colour looks faded when wet.

Very well made costume but very unflattering. I am 5 foot 11 inches and a 36F inch chest - it was large on the body and tight on the bust with no real support ..not for tall curvy girls - shame

Really nice, good quality swimsuit. A little tricky to get on but once you've got the hang of it, its great.
Lovely fit too

Love this. I'm 5ft 6" and long in the body (size 8-10) so finding a costume that doesn't go up your bum or drag your chest down is a problem (for proper swimming). This is a great fit - I went for medium which although should be for size 12 works really well for me. Feels snug not tight, flattering shape, but practical. Great to have bust support to, lessens having your bust completed flattened. Originally ordered this in the brighter colour way, but could see too many lumps and bumps. This is much more flattering.
