Rated 5 out of 5 by Sofia Sexy 90s Throwback
I am obsessed with this suit. I am 5'6", 135lbs, very athletic with broad shoulders, small chest, and a big butt. I purchased the 4 and it fit great. The 6 is a little loose, and can slip around. Originally I was wary about purchasing the Orchid color, but it fits the 90s vibe perfectly.
Note that even though this suit is a one piece it is neither modest nor matronly. The legs are high cut, so be prepared to show off some bootie. You'll being seeing a silhouette you haven't seen since 1992, Which is what I wanted to do so it fit the bill perfectly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JennP Perfect one-piece
Finally, a one-piece that doesn't make me feel matronly! Sometimes you just want to look stylish and chic without wearing a bikini and this suit is the timeless solution to that conundrum. I must admit, I was inspired to purchase by the recent PR storm around the scoop back tank revival and I am so happy I did. My only regret is that I didn't buy it in more colors! It runs a bit small if you have a chest, but the shelf bra provides more support than you'd think. This will be a staple for me this summer. Thanks for bringing it back, Jenna!

Rated 5 out of 5 by AwesomeOne Perfect Classic One Piece - Classy stuff!
I have been searching for a while for a one piece that will stay put and hold me in when I do a swim workout. On the curvy side of life, I could never quite find the right piece. Others were too flimsy, too ornate or too tight in all the wrong places! I am 5'2" and usually a large in most brands. About a 10 to 12. I purchased the 12 and it fit perfectly! If I were taller, I'd probably go for the longer torso version, otherwise the shoulder straps might dig. I love the flattering scoop back and the neckline. The hip leg openings are not too low, giving my upper legs a nice shape. It has an inner shelf bra. Wonderful! And it's lined, giving the it a substantial feel that elegantly conceals the odd mis-placed bump or two. I can now swim and workout without any worries! After the navy, I bought the black and the green, despite the price! That's how awesome these are! Classy without being drab.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jjello True Story
Yesterday I was at the beach with friends and we were lamenting about how impossible it is to find a simple, nice looking one-piece these days. We started describing our all-time favorite bathing suits, and I got all nostalgic over my beloved JCrew cayenne red scoop tank with the shelf bra and high cut legs. Just out of curiosity (and a desire to torture myself?) I thought I'd check out the bathing suit offerings on the JCrew website tonight, thinking I'd never find anything I'd like, and lo and behold, THERE IT WAS, my #1 all-time favorite bathing suit! Thank you JCrew, I am buying it (again) right now!

Thank you, thank you for bringing back this suit style. I have had at least 10 of them over the years. It is so flattering on all body types, just a comfortable, streamlined suit. Love the high-cut legs and low back. Now could we consider other colors - pastels and white?
