Even a visit to the pool feels like a trip to the Riviera in this retro-glam swim dress. Utterly romantic, it minimizes hips and tummy while it dazzles with a shirred twist top and a cutout back with adjustable ties. Full coverage. Soft cups. Removable straps. Nylon/spandex. Lined. By Carmen Marc Valvo. Imported.
Suit runs small; we recommend that you order up one size.
I ordered this in two colors thrilled to finally purchase it after looking at it longingly for a while. Sorry to say the suit is beautiful but the fit is ridiculous. Purchased one size up but suit is incredibly long and lean even in the size 12. Cup size is strictly for someone with an A or B. I wear a C so forget it. I never had this much trouble fitting into a suit. 5'8" or taller, size 2 or 4, A or B cup, this is for you. I am size 10 and 5'4" so I will have to look elsewhere.Very disappointed!

Review 2 for Carmen Marc Valvo Shirred Bandeau Swim Dress
too much material

I loved this suit but it didn't work... I am 5'2", 120 lbs & it was way too much material . The top did not feel like it would be secure enough to stay up even in a smaller size --but I loved the color, fabric and design....maybe if I were taller?

Beautiful color... I purchased the orange. Per your suggestion I ordered up. Fit beautifully!
