Unsure about this one
I'm 5'2 and 110lb and normally an XS fits perfectly however I found that the bottoms fit great but the top was just odd... I by no means have a huge bust at 32B, but found the either the top is faulty or I have an odd body shape. The problem i think is with the double closure on the back: the bottom closure is loose but the top closure is very tight which is what is making the top an odd fit, as it pulls my boobs almost into my arm pits and squishes them down Maybe some padding in the front (i was disappointed it didn't have any for that price) may help my bust look better and with wear the back top closure will probably stretch out, but I'm tossing up between the cost to send it back or pay for padding/alterations. Such a shame because they are really nice bathers!!!

Not for sexy tan lines
I'm sad to say that I have always admired Mara Hoffman's prints and designs, however I don't think she really understands a woman's body when it comes to the bust. I have bought triangle bikini tops from her lines which are fine. The bustier styles are not flattering and actually flattens the chest. You're paying for the print. Too bad I can't return this. Bottoms fit fine, but I wish they weren't such a wide cut at the butt and hip area - think tan lines!

Beautiful
I'm so happy this fit. I'm a 34D and I fit in the Med just fine. I'm a size 6/8 and I'm tall. This suit fit perfect all the way around. Just as pictured.

Love Mara Hoffman!
This is my third Mara Hoffman bathing suit, and I really do love her. I got this in the peacock color, which is little more of a darker, richer blue in person, and is gorgeous. I have a 34D chest and am more curvy, usually wearing a size 6 or 28/29, and I got this in the L. I think it fits very well- I probably could have gotten away with the M, but I strived to be a little more modest with a brand that is notorious for running small. The fit is comfortable and offers just enough coverage for me to not feel overly exposed.

Nice
I'm 5'7, 130 pounds and generally on the larger side of small. I was worried about ordering a small in this item because I'm a 34 C bust, and bandeaus are often too small, while the the mediums run a little too big. I decided I'd take a chance, and it worked out! The small fits well. It's a little tighter than usual, but not noticeably so. Another worry was the beads, and I'm quite happy because they are tightly woven in a won't fall off anytime soon. My only problem with this bikini is that it's imported....while so many of Mara Hoffman's swimwear is made in the USA, I failed to notice that this particular one(as well as a couple of others) are made in China. While I don't mind paying the extra $$ for something made in the US, knowing that its made in China put me off a little....I seriously wish that all Mara Hoffman swimwear would be made in the USA.

wasn't amazing
I'd been wanting this bikini for a while, but was disappointed when I received it. I'm a normal size small, but i found this to be a little bit too tight (but a size bigger definitely would have been too big). beyond that, i'm extremely small-chested. Bandeau tops usually look good on me, but i didn't realize this didn't have any sort of padding. Usually bandeaus have a sort of removable or padded cup, but this is just thin fabric. It made my chest look too small. had to return! but the color (peacock) and beading was nice.

Beautiful color
Pre pregnancy I wear a size us6, 34c bra and and a 27 in most brands if jeans. I usually buy a small in bikinis but being pregnant I bought these in a size m and they fit. They will be a bit loose after I have the baby so if you're generally a size us6 I would get the size small.

Cool bikini
I love this bikini. The only problem is that the top is not tight enough to hold in place which is a problem for strapless bikinis so I actually had to remove a couple of inches around the clasp to tighten it up.

Nice, but...
The top part fit perfectly and was very flattering, but the bottoms really dug into my hips. Maybe it's my body shape, I'm fairly curvy, but my other Mara Hoffman bikini (in the same size), fits me well. So I don't know what's wrong with this one, but I returned it, definitely didn't do any favours for bottom half.

Best top!,
I love Mara Hoffman tops,especially the strapless v! Med or large fits a DD size and doesn't loom tacky. Color is wonderful and bright like the picture (I got the lime green). bottoms fit better in the medium, and have a weird turn over at the top that looks a bit odd initially - like you rolled them once as if they were too big.

Love!
Overall - 4 stars! I love the peach color, looks great against my olive color skin. It's the first light colored swimsuit I have owned that doesn't make me feel large, if you know what I mean. The bottoms run a bit small, and they're snug but oh well, guess I am keeping it since the pieces aren't sold separately. Also - top fits well for all bust sizes, I am on the smaller size and the bandeau style looks proportioned!

Narrower hips required
Loved this swimsuit but I"m normally a medium, while the top fit perfectly the bottoms were too tight giveing me a not so lovely bulge over the top... perhaps a large would have been better. Sadly sent them back.

meh
for the price i expected it to be of higher quality. maybe i don't understand swimwear construction, but the fabric felt cheap and it seemed poorly made. i returned it.
