As a 40 something mom of 2 young kids, at 5' 4", 135 lbs and 36D cup size, it's challenging to find the right swimsuit that is not so dated yet marketed to the 20 something body. This swimsuit has full coverage in the back which I didn't like, but I like the boy shorts cut around the thighs. The décolletage/ bust cut is the best feature along with the heavy ruching to help disguise the abdomen area. The bust support- underwire sides- is excellent, and while there is molded cup padding, I would have liked more. Nonetheless the bust support is almost sufficient without the halter straps. The color is a rich brick red and universally attractive, and while I didn't prefer the bling in the center, I didn't hate it. This is a great suit for hot-tubbing with your significant other or great poolside on vacation. Because of the bling, I won't wear this to my kids' swim lessons, but hey, I think we all have seen worse. Lastly, love Overstock for the overall value and the fit (size 10) was excellent.
