Rated 2 out of 5 by youshouldknow Nipple alert
I write this review to alert other customers that this product does not include breast cups or any sort of padding whatsoever. The "lining" is very thin. So be prepared for everything you've got going on to be on display. I titled this review "nipple alert" because that's exactly what it is: an alert that your nips will be on full display in this swimsuit. It's not that it's sheer, just so thin that you can clearly see said nips. Also, if you have a shred of body fat, this swimsuit will do you no favors. I am 5'8 and 145 lbs. Not totally overweight, but there's a reason I'm looking at one-pieces. LOVED the style, and am so bummed to have to return.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jennasmyidol Surprised The Reviews Here Aren't Better...
So I wanted to get a go-to one piece that I felt totally covered and comfortable in, to go to the beach with a 5-year-old in tow. Sand castles, lots of activity. I'm 5'4" with a somewhat hourglass shape (36DD chest) so swimsuits, especially one pieces are tough. My sizing here at the crew is all over the place, but given that I wanted room for my chest, I ordered up in this, a size 10. It fit me perfectly. Though, I can understand how for someone who is taller, they might need a long torso size.
It didn't feel too tight, but was snug enough to hold up my chest. I can do without cups because my breasts usually don't fit into them. I guess I can see where a woman who is of an age or modesty level might want a lining, but I don't personally see anything wrong with a little bit of a nipple showing through on a suit when you're out wearing it. I mean, you're showing various other parts of your body, it's just a little bump, right? And you're not at a wedding or anything.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Shae Missed the Boat in So Many Ways
I knew it was risky to order a swimsuit online, but I needed something basic and liked the look of this one. I'm 5' 7" tall, 130 pounds, and I ordered a size 8. The suit was too short in the body for me, even though my torso is normal length. It was also cut lower across the legs than I expected, and I found that unflattering. Finally, if you order this suit, it would be good to have a dedicated yoga practice, because even for a flexible person it's quite challenging to reach around to the place where the pull tab hits your back and zip it up to the neck. I give the suit maximum points for quality of construction, but the style is all wrong for me, so I'll be sending it back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SLME Flattering, chic coverage
I love this suit! Minimalist, sleek, and contemporary. I was looking for something for the pool and the beach that would offer good coverage, but also be flattering. This is it. I love the high neck and zipper in back. I got the black color in my usual size 2 (5' 4" and 110 lbs). It's slightly smaller than other suits I've gotten from J Crew, but still a keeper. I cannot wait to wear it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MJnboys Super cute style amd fit BUT ...
Super cute style and fit was correct. The material was too thin so showed everything (pink) and gave zero support to chest ...so great for smaller chested women and maybe not for getting wet.
