Rated 2 out of 5 by Jennifer Awkward on a Long Torso
This suit has all the makings of a super flattering style but, somehow, it just didn't come together that way on me. I am 5'9" and about 150 pounds, athletic build, and this suit made me look stumpy and wide in profile. I found the cut just a tiny bit too short for a long torso and a bit tight all around the midsection - although this could just have been the way it was intended, so that it would stand up without straps, but it had the result of also making the black section look stretched and shiny like a pair of too-small yoga pants - but it was also too loose in the chest. I have had this problem with every J Crew one piece I've owned. In this case, it was so bad that the tops of the cups and the tan suit lining kept popping out above the top hem of the suit. I was hoping it would be a sporty and secure option for active beach days with my family and kids but, sadly, I will not be keeping it because it was just so unflattering.
