        This is my second Boden swimsuit. Last year I purchased the retro boy leg swimsuit and loved it, so I purchased this one as I thought it would be similar. I like this one almost as much. Something to note is this swimsuit feels short in the torso, but once I pulled the straps taught I was able to make it fit just fine. I think this fits true to size overall. I'm a total convert to the way boden makes the legs on the swimsuits-- I've had no problems with them riding up and they are so much more comfortable. I will always buy boden swimsuits!

              Love the retro styling - square cut leg, halter tie. I've seen the comments about how hard it is to put on but I have no issue with that at all. I find it super easy to get on! I have many suits that have good results but are very difficult to get on - this is not one of those suits. Many mention the looser leg openings which is definitely true but you get used to it and it really is much more comfortable. Cool color combination. I frequently need a long in Boden sizes but not for this. Fits perfectly.

                    The seat felt baggy but the top was too small and unstructured to provide comfortable coverage.

                        I haven't actually tried this suit out in the water, but I like the design and fit and it seems comfortable. I've given four stars because I don't know how it will be after swim and wash.

                          Just received this swimsuit in the mail (I got the pink one) and it is SO cute! It is extremely flattering, and the colors are fantastic! I felt that the cups were a bit too roomy for me (I'm about a 36B and ordered the 12), so I'm going to order the 10 and try it. I will definitely keep one or the other though, so pretty.

                              I was so excited to see the 50's style design of this swimsuit that I jumped on purchasing this one. Reviews all raved about it. I wanted to love it, but sadly it was not for me and had to be returned.
                              I purchased a size 8 - I typically wear 6 & 8 in Boden product. The torso fit small (in length) and I don't have a long torso. And the top of the bust kept rolling over, exposing the lining. Although the bottom fit well, overall comfort was lacking.

                                This swimsuit is marvelous. I never (ever) thought I would say this, but I look hot in it! Like an early '60s pinup! I swore I'd never wear a swimsuit again years ago because I looked awful in everything I tried. But this one caught my eye and I decided I'd give swimwear one more wary try. I'm pleased as punch. I have an hourglass frame with a long torso and a large bust that makes clothes shopping nightmarish. But this suit flatters all my curves, shows off my girls (subtly) but keeps them in place, and covers my bum without riding up. It takes some work to wiggle your way into the extra structured cut, kind of like shapewear, but just like shapewear, the effort is worth it. My only suggestion would be to add underwires for better bust support and to offer more colors. But I think this might be my best Boden purchase to date.

                                      The suit looks great. Very well-made, too - much more substantial than other suits. The one issue is the slimming element in the suit - it does make it very tight (even on someone thin), and somewhat uncomfortable. Not sure how this will feel at the beach, but hopefully it will become somehow less constricting in time.

                                          This is the prettiest and most flattering swimsuit I've had in a long time, and once you put it on, it is not moving. I do feel that the bust could have a bit more support, though.
