BEST SELLER! Vintage Inspired 1950s Style Navy Blue Swimsuit

by Katie Chester Date Added: Sunday 10 February, 2013
I have been eyeing an esther williams swim suit for about 3 years. I had always hopped I'd be more fit before getting one. Still I needed a suit I'dfeel confident in even though I am not my ideal size yet. I followed the measurement chart- and ordered a 16. In clothes I am a 12-14 depending on the designer. This suit fit me pretty well. Sadly in the boob department I lack, so it's a bit loose. If I had gone with the size 14 it would fit me in the boobs, but not the hips. I was about 1" off in the hips. Besides the loose boobs it's a lovely suit.

My only complaint is that this suit is a dark navy in person, no where near the cobalt blue they show here on the model. I was sad that it wasn't the brilliant blue of my wedding ring stone, but I still like it. Also the price here is 20$ cheaper than another competing vintage-style website. Besides that my only other thing to point out is the "boning" It is only boned on the sides of the swimsuit cups. The boning does not go down the sides of the suit like I was anticipating. I'm fine with this since it still looks great, but for those wanting something with some stomach cinching ability- this is not the suit for you. I would also like to say the boning itches and - it's not covered up with an inner liner.

Lastly, I have heard complaints about color fade- but the suit states "hand wash only, cold water, line dry" on the tag- so I will try this first. I wont be needing the suit until the first week of April. I'll leave a comment again after it's been tested in pools and in the ocean. :)
