Rated 2 out of 5 by Hollie Not designed with actual busts in mind...
I ordered this swimsuit expecting that the wide straps would provide support while also adding some style beyond the standard tank one-piece. The straps are too loose to provide any support, however, and awkwardly sag to the side (leading to other sagging). It's as if the designers were thinking about mannequins when they made this. I do like the Italian matte fabric, the color (Pale Yellow) is pretty as well, although a little brighter/greener than I expected.

I have several J.Crew swimsuits, and this one looked so promising. I got two sizes, and both were absolute fails. This suit has an extremely short torso, and if you have any size in your chest - well, the fit of the top is just odd. This would work well for those with little up top or with a lot to show off. Otherwise, the lack of support and the cut? It just was not cute.
Overall the quality of material of the suit was still top notch and what I would expect from J.Crew. Just be aware of the oddness overall!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Muffin Love the Style, Fit is Strange
This is a beautiful suit BUT the fit is weird. I am thin with a small chest and curvy hips and I am in excellent shape. I usually fit a size 4 or 6 at J Crew in bottoms. I ordered this suit in a size 6 with the long torso, per recommendations of other reviewers. It fit beautifully on top, but was far too tight in the butt. I exchanged for a size 8 with the long torso. This was better in the bottom, but WAY too loose up top. There is 2-3 extra inches of fabric hanging off of my shoulders between these two sizes. Because this suit doesn't provide any sort of chest support, the extra fabric means the straps would fall down, causing a wardrobe malfunction.
I have exchanged for the size 8 regular torso in hopes that it fits better. I'll update my review then. This is backordered for two months, however; so wish me luck.

I ordered the yellow swimsuit in regular sizing and the green with the extended torso, and the green fit like a glove. I'm only 5'2" with a slightly longer torso, and the regular sized yellow was way too short and constricting. The bust support wasn't extraordinary but I think that is the overall style of the swimsuit, which was fine for me. The green is a little more muted than I thought but still quite nice, and the yellow was more of a highlighter fluorescent yellow that I wasn't keen on.
Super happy with the green, although a slight additional bust support would've been nice.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Quinny No lining/ padding in bra!!
So this suit is very flattering and I loved it, however I did not read carefully and the bust area is very thin with no real lining or padding so you can see certain lady parts. Overall the fit is true to size and it makes you're body look great. Sadly, I have to return it due to lack of padding. READ carefully when you buy bathing suits !
