very pretty w/ the bra
This isnt the softest/ most comfortable material, but this set is really about glamour much more than comfort. Super pretty, definitely good quality.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

true to size based on other reviews
I expected this to be tight based on another review I read. I'm 36C...it barely clasps, however I don't think I'd want a larger size because the sort of tight fit makes the push up quality incredible. I'd be worried that the 38C might either be too big or just not nearly as sexy. No gaps, just a lifted, beautiful bust. I bought the bottoms too. The quality seems good, and for a tight fit it still seems somewhat comfortable (sometimes we have to sacrifice for beauty though!).

awful
The color was awful (my husband hated it), the worst thing was the fit. I have lost some weight recently, but I'm pretty much standardly a medium. Apparently in this I would be a small. Shapeless, doesn't hug curves at all. Just hangs there. Completely ugly and cheap looking. It arrived wrinkled too which was not a good touch. Sent back. If I could give no stars I would.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

flattering and comfortable
This was so easy to wear (wore it over a Mara Hoffman bikini)...I'm 5'5" so the length could be on the long side, but I can just hike it up around the waist as needed. Beautiful high quality material that hugs in all the right places (36C-30-42, got a medium), just comfortable and gorgeous. The cut is wonderful, would buy from this brand again. I bought this based on a previous 5-star review, and I'm glad I did!

super comfortable and cute
I am familiar w/ Mara Hoffman's sizing from 2 previous purchases so I was very comfortable ordering the Medium (I am 5'5", 36C-30-43, so pretty curvy). This material stretches well and the tie up back is great. Very comfortable, hangs a little lower on me perhaps due to my height (may need to adjust the straps a little)...I plan on wearing this not only a bit over the summer, but also purchased it specifically for a trip to humid Thailand. Love the print, very flattering on my curvy frame.

terrible fit
I bought this in a medium and returned it. Terrible (loose) unflattering fit. I normally wear a medium in most brands (medium can be tight at times, I'm 36-29-43, 5'5") but this just hung there. Just awful. Perhaps the quality was ok, but the cut did nothing for me. This would be even worse on a skinny girl.

medium is perfect for a large booty!
Was worried that the medium might be too small/ tight for my large booty (I'm not exaggerating....it's 43 inches around where it's roundest!) but they are perfect. I actually have a little room (not baggy...nobody wants saggy bikini bottoms) to tie it comfortably without being too tight. And while I love my big booty, this actually plays it down a little bit (which is good for a bikini). Bought the top as well in medium (I'm 36C) and I'm very happy with this purchase. Wonderful quality, print, texture, and just so comfortable! Ladies if you have a smaller booty or just not so large, maybe try the small, you'll probably still have enough room!

so comfortable, great quality and fit
I have 2 Mara Hoffman dresses that I love (great quality and prints) so I thought this would be the perfect bikini (bought the bottoms too, will post a review for those) for an upcoming trip to Thailand (bright colors/ works well against a tan skintone, plus I want to be noticed when I'm in a bikini...I have never and probably never will buy a black bikini). I have bikinis that are somewhat softer in texture that are not even as comfortable...I was almost worried that the M wouldn't fit me since I'm 36C (I've worn a large in other brands that fit smaller), but this fit perfectly, good coverage. The colors are amazing. And for all you curvy girls-- triangle bikinis are THE most flattering, they will always adjust to you! Excited to wear this! Will try more bikinis in this style from Mara Hoffman.

so sexy!
I've tried Calvin Klein bras before, but this is my favorite (got the zebra rose print...I have a tan right now, normally a light/ medium skintone and it's very flattering). I'm a 36C and it was true to size. Perfect push up, no gaps. I'll look for more bras in this style in the future, just gorgeous! Really recommend this highly!

so bummed
The medium was too small for me...my waist is 30, I don't think the L was in stock at the time I ordered...I do have somewhat large breasts and hips so I think this is part of the problem. If the material was stretchy at all it would work, but I just can't zip it up...I'd be tempted to get the large if I thought it would fit in the waist/ zip, but then I'd be worried about the top possibly being too large. The quality of the material seems good, but it seems this was designed for skinny girls, which I am not. Glad shopbop has a good return policy, wish you had a store so I didn't have to wait for return credit!
