Rated 4 out of 5 by HarleySays Vivid Spearmint Size 0
The color is beautiful, very summery. The ruching across the body is great for discreetly covering up any extra pudge. I find the suit to be well made. I am 5'3" and 100lbs, my J. Crew size is usually XXS or 00. I took the size 0, which was a bit of a struggle to get on due to the somewhat stiff boning along the sides of the suit. The body of the suit fit snugly but did not feel suffocating. The normal torso length fit fine on my frame. The top of the bust area fit too tight and was uncomfortable, even with my very small chest. I would suggest sizing up if you are busty. I also find the shelf bra is not thick enough to prevent headlight incidents, if you know what I mean. I think I would like this suit better if the leg openings were cut higher to show the body off a bit more. This is a beautiful suit if you don't mind the lack of adequate nip coverage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Elle Short Torso Ruched Bathing Suit
I liked this suit and the fit. Was not aware that anyone made a short torso fit, and this suits me well. Not a Petite size in other regards, but do have a shortened torso, and have discovered some sizing now runs too long for me-at least in J Crew sizing- so this suit was a good fit, and you have made a
sale with me. Thank you, too, for your sizing chart which helped me decide to give the fit a try when other sizing had not worked.

I loved the shorter pro portions on this suit. I am a petite woman, and it fits beautifully! It was flattering from all sides!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MominAlabama perfect bathing suit
I had ordered this same suit for the last 2 years- got lots of compliments but had an issue with the elastic at the leg opening. I could not figure out what was wrong- finally decided to call and I talked to very nice and helpful young woman who suggested that the fit was off- i needed to order short torso and then would not have a problem with gapping at the leg opening. She even arranged for credit for a suit that I got last fall and the tags were still on it. Got the short torso suit and voila!! that was the answer! Fits beautifully- very comfortable and attractive. Just for the record I am 5'2" and about 100 lbs- why didn't I think I need short torso???? Duh!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Laura great swimsuit, with a couple caveats
JCrew is well known for having excellent swimwear options. This suit is no exception. Great qulity, colors are on trend and dynamic. I ordered five suits this year to test styles and sizes, seeing as I am short (5'2) with a short torso and large bust. JCrew offers a short torso suit (which is still about four inches too long for me), or a D cup suit, but not both. Apparently I am not allowed to be short with large breasts. I ended up going with a short torso suit in one size smaller than I was expecting, even though the shelf bra leaves a bit to be desired. Could have gone down another size perhaps to better fit torso and bottom, but then would have definitely needed the D cup suit instead. Made for tall women!
