    Additional Information

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feminine and Flattering, Sporty and Sexy I love this swimsuit- the fabric is lovely and once on it’s so supportive and doesn’t move- even after 100 lengths! Agree with the other reviews that I would feel exposed if I had a bigger bust (I’m a 36C). I’m also 5’10 and for once I didn’t have to buy a size bigger for length- medium was just perfect. Please don’t change it- this should be an iconic product for Sweaty Betty. Just some more colours please- purple and navy and a deep red would be fab!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gorgeous but beware if you're tall I deliberated over what size to buy for about a week so I want to leave a review to help other tallies in search of one pieces. Im a 10-12 UK, 34D, 5'9 girl and struggle to find a good fit in a lot of clothes, but my problem with swimsuits its they are never long enough. I ended up going with M which is pretty snug but I felt the L would be too loose on top etc. The M is in its in definite wedgie territory but fits well otherwise. Really soft and I love the cut and panels

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wish it came in other colors! My husband thought I looked great in the suit, although I bought it for workouts and wasn't expecting much in the style department, so that was a nice surprise. Unfortunately, it's a little big on top (one of the great downfalls of being pear shaped is that one-piece bathing suits are always too big on top) and so falls weirdly and the stitching under the arms was a little irritating the first time I put the suit on. However, in the water, it was fine, and the suit stayed in place without any issues. Modest girls who are smaller chested, be wary - the front V is very deep!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lacking breast support Good fit overall, nice fabric. Other reviews stating no support for larger breasts is correct, the swimsuit just pushes them flat. 16DD here and find myself rearranging quite often. Great swimsuit for the pool but I wouldn't use it at the beach or for active swimming. Also was pestered to leave a review multiple times, even before receiving the parcel in the mail. Very annoying.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful stunning yet totally practical swimsuit A fantastic swimsuit for Serious swimming and looks great round a pool too. I swim most days and now have three carve swimsuits. My first one is now two years old and as good as new.. I just added two new ones (red and black) both of which I’ve been wearing both on the beach and in the pool.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from did not work for me The suit is a nice design, the length was a little long and there was little support- the waist was baggy. I am 68 years old, 5'3" 105 and busty. I can see a long waisted smaller busted younger woman in this suit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why did I wait so long?! I was put off by the price of this swimsuit initially, but the design and fit always appealed to me. Sexy swimwear to make you look and feel good without being a two piece. I got it on a 20% off swimwear deal and really love it. I ordered the black and the red...I was naughty and kept both! The double layer shows real attention to detail and thought behind the design. Fantastic!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Fit but Stretched Bust Area I bought this swimsuit for holiday and it's just so versatile & easy to wear! The only down side to this is that the 'V' section around the bust stretched after the first wear and didn't look as great afterwards (in my opinion) and feel that by paying over £80 for a swimsuit - this shouldn't happen!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect swimsuit Size chart is spot on. I am a 12-14 and a 34D or DD and I bought a 14Large. Perfect mix between clean simple glamorous suit and sporty. No bust support really but I prefer this. Quite low cut but style allows you to get away with it. If you are bigger busted you might feel a little exposed. I can imagine the bottom to give me a wedgie over time. However, I love it and I've been looking for my perfect swimsuit for years, and now I've found it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sporty & sexy Wow! I love this swimming costume. I’m a size 12 with a 32H bust and 5’4". I bought M in black from the Bath store.I love exercising particularly swimming and what makes this costume special for me, is there’s no annoying clasps, ties or straps to adjust, and I feel sporty and sexy, win, win

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flattering, stylish and comfortable Have only ever used highly practical speedo suits before and fancied trying something a little more stylish for the beach, love this suit, so flattering and looks great as a top too. The quality feels great, I liked it so much i immediately ordered it in red too which is a beautiful shade of orangey red. Love them both and am glad to have broken away from the purely practical side and treated myself to something that feels great to wear and I feel really good in. Thanks SB! (To help others wondering about sizing am size 8 to 10, quite broad back and shoulders, I don’t like things too tight, small was just right).

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks great, but not the best fit overall. I was worried that the plunging neckline would be too revealing as I usually feel uncomfortable showing so much of myself, but I must admit that it is very tasteful and flattering. My only gripe is that the fabric around my bum does not sit very flush, to the extent that I have to hold it in place when outside of the water!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from “The suit” Makes me feel like a movie star! A little cheeky but everything stays put even running after kids. I never want a different suit....

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This swimming costume is awsome! It fits perfectly and its really conformtable to waer and to swim with it. It's a 10 out of 10- Just perfect

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Costume! Fantastic swimwear which fits beautifully. The low front looks fab and is still supportive enough for someone with larger boobs. So many complements when I wear it!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from great swimsuit but will ride up! I'm a curvy size 12 and the overall fit is great, although once you start walking / moving it rides up quickly!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great style Really pleased with this initially. I have yet to swim in it, but this is something a little different for holiday. My only complaint is the straps at the top are a little bulky. I am a size 12 and bought a L. It is a good fit. Nice coverage on the bottom, but I have a small bum. No padding, but firm fabric, which is great.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from superflattering At first I thought the neckline might be low however I tried and it fits perfectly. it is superflattering, nice matterial and I love the colour.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful swim suit I am usually a size S in sweaty Betty clothing but bought a medium and it fits perfectly - mainly due to my boobs (30 FF). It’s very sexy and flattering but the size of my boobs means it’s great for the beach, probably not laps at the pool!! Thanks Sweaty Betty for all the usual quality and style. Love it and will be buying in black as well!! X

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Still deciding! Swimsuit arrived this week but I’m still undecided as I feel I’m showing off too much cleavage ! I’m a 10/12 but with boobs and fit over body is perfect ( went with a medium) but it is very low at the front. Any recommendations for other styles for ladies with boobs ?! Think if I go up a size it would just be too big ! No issue with side boobs just a lot of cleavage on show!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from the perfect swimsuit I had been looking to but a nice swimsuit but I gave up, as the ones that look good don't always fit well, especially if you are not a super model. I went to SB to buy leggings from the sale and I got out with this swimsuit which wasn't on sale! it is the perfect one! the cut is so nice, it is comfy at the same time looks very chique!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lovely while it lasted! I was delighted with the swimsuit but when I put it on after careful rinsing, air drying and storage it is all perished down the front and therefore unwearable. Very disappointed as I have never experienced anything like this before.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from a hard Nope Totally unflattering. The thickest material and heaviest swim suit I’ve ever seen in my life. I was shocked at how big and bulky it was. I’m not young so was looking for a more suitable suit but this was terrible. I have since ordered some one pieces through victoria secret that are modest and flattering! Which is what I was looking for...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flattering and stylish I've been having a body crisis this month, just before holiday so decided to see if a more expensive swimsuit would be more forgiving. I sized up and am glad I did as the material has less give than most swimsuits. But on a positive note this absolutely holds everything in place. I plan to throw over some lounging trousers I bought (also SB) for a great poolside look. When I'm not feeling my most confident, flattering clothes make me feel much better and this serves that purpose perfectly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flattering! I’m not the best in shape and swimsuits always make me feel insecure but this swimsuit has been great. Love in Blue Quartz. Very flattering and fits well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Carve Swimsuit I bought the white one last year and got the blue recently. The fit is amazing. I was a little worried about the low cut of the chest, but it looks great and keep everything in place without being constricting. Overall is a comfortable swimsuit and looks great. The blue is so pretty. Really recommend.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Overpriced Upset to see these put into the sale less than a week after I purchased them and a pair of leggings full price

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing swimsuit I bought this swimsuit because I liked the shape. I have since used it 3 times and have found it disappointing for 2 reasons. Despite tightening the straps I don’t feel secure whilst swimming. Secondly, the swimming costume is slightly padded. After washing the pads have become folded over and I cannot straighten them or rearrange the padding to obtain a smooth appearance this spoils the whole overall look.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super flattering but no padding This swimsuit is super flattering. Sporty but sexy, not not too sexy! My only issue is there is absolutely no padding in the chest area. Cold water and no padding is not a good combo for most women. I kept the swimsuit and brought it to a tailor to add padding.
