This is a real cute swimsuit, but that's about all I can positively say about it. After the first time I wore it, the seam along one side of the top came undone, leaving a bulge in the fabric around the area. This isn't a big deal, because I can sew it, but now the seams along the waist of the bottom are doing the same thing. The fabric at the ends of the ties has already started to fray, so now the elastic inside is showing. Bottom line, you get what you pay for. I don't expect this bikini to last beyond this summer.
