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

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.
Sizing: Larger than 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!).

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!

smaller than expected and poor quality
This doesn't appear to be well made, doesn't provide any coverage, way too small. I'm 36C, bought the medium, it's going back...I don't even think a large would be suitable. Won't be buying from this brand again (and will rethink buying bras online, need to be able to try on in person).

love
I just bought this in Medium (on sale, and thank you shopbop for quick shipping!). I have a medium skintone, definitely flattering. I thought the extra string (with the gold "beads") was kind of pointless so I tossed it, it just seems decorative and doesn't have a function. Looks perfect without it. I'm a curvy girl (36C-30-42) but a triangle bikini like this is the most flattering, period. I don't mind showing some skin so this is excellent, very comfortable/ lightweight material.
