        There are few vintage clothing pieces that stand the test of time better than the classic one-piece swimsuit, and this red polka dot swimsuit from Esther Williams is the perfect example of that timeless appeal. With a universally flattering design, fun, frisky polka dot print and adjustable halter straps that create a comfortable fit on any wearer, this vintage suit is just about everything a gal could ask for in the perfect bathing suit. It is constructed of a soft yet stretchy fabric in an eye-catching shade of tomato red, while stark white polka dots line the suit’s entire surface. Slight ruching creates a slimming effect down the hips and thighs, and the smooth midsection and backside are seamless and sleek. This red polka dot swimsuit also offers slightly padded cup inserts, a shaping sweetheart neckline and completely adjustable halter straps that offer a custom fit for any type of body style.

        I'm in love! I bought this on a whim because I've been dying for a cute retro one piece ever since my other one wore out and I can definitely see myself buying this again in the future. My measurements are 41-31-42 and I bought a size 14 (I was wondering if I should have gotten a 16, but I went with my instincts) and it fits perfectly. I tried it on to show my sister and she asked to try it to see how it fit (she's smaller on top and a little more hippy than I am) and it looked so amazing on her that she bought one too -and she's usually a bikini girl. It tucks and smooths all your curves into place and gives you this fantastic hourglass shape (not to mention you look about a size smaller once you get it on because it's tailored so well -it even tamed my little bit of "tummy pudge"). I'm quite busty, too (36DD) and it gives me more support than any other bathing suit I've found in this style without an underwire. Definitely pull out your measuring tape so you get the perfect fit and remember that it stretches, so go with your instincts. I went with a 14 instead of a 16 because I'm so tired of things being baggy in my waist, and it ended up fitting my chest and bottom perfectly because the fabric has a nice stretch even though it's sturdy. What I love about this suit (aside from it's ability to flatter my body) is how it's flirty and cute without being a bikini. I'm 22 and have never been a bikini fan so to have a one piece that doesn't look super conservative but still covers up just the right amount of skin is so nice. It's the first bathing suit I've ever put on and fell in love with not just the suit, but how I looked in it. I could strut around in this all day and not feel self conscience at all. I'm also from British Columbia and it was delivered the next day, which was impressive and rather unexpected, so it was a happy surprise.

        I just received this suit and I have to say that it's the most flattering suit I have ever worn. I am a size 12 and the size 12 fit perfect ... It feels snug but that's what I like (to suck it all in!) ... I think the 14 would have been okay too and a little bigger in the bust. I love how the suit pulls in my tummy and it's just extremely flattering all around and very unique. I can't wait to wear it this summer!!!!! Definitely worth every penny.

        Really and truly the best thing you can do is grab a sewing measuring tape and do your bust, waist, hips and booty! Because the sizes they show are just that! Mine fit great, it was just a bit tight getting over "trunk", (I'm blessed in that area)! To keep a really nice shape, on both sides it has a "fitting bar". If you ever wore a corset you know what that means, it's basically a strong line that goes down the sides so it helps conform to you and doesn't let you 'bulge'. I absolutely adore this suit and got a ton of compliments on it. I am way into the 40's and 50's looks. Who doesn't look good in a pin up suit! And by they way, even though it looks conservative and isn't a two piece, my husband said it's the hottest suit I've ever owned! Go for it girls!

        i was a little hesitant to order this because most one piece swimsuits make me look busty and boxy. not this one!! it makes my small waist look smaller and it gives me a nice bustline without too much hanging out. i feel so confident in it. i wish i could wear it every day!! i also bought the fun white flower swim cap just to play with the total vintage style. i can't wait to wear this all summer long. i have a feeling i will be back to get another just as a back-up. you won't be disappointed!!! get it before it is gone.

        After reading the reviews of this suit, I was really worried that I ordered the wrong size. My body dilemna? I'm very small-chested and very "hippy." I ordered the 6 in hopes that the smallness on the top would work out and just take a chance of it being too small on bottom. It arrived today and I'm SO relieved. It fits like a glove. It's true that it does run small. So if you are small chested, go with the size for your chest. It's better for it to be a bit snug in the butt then way too big on the top. I can NOT wait for this summer. I have a one year old and can't wait to show off this amazing suit on the beach with my little girl. BTW... this suit is available on a few other sites for 20 dollars more so get it HERE. They were prompt, I received it in 4 days!
