When I saw this design, it was everything I wanted - elegant but sporty with good coverage without looking frumpy. I was a little concerned with the reviews, but I went ahead and decided to give it a go, and following some of the ladies' recommendations got one cup size smaller. Upon trying it on, the silhouette and style was very flattering and although I had to fiddle a little with the padded cups to create a nice smooth finish, it wasn't too bad. The support felt good and the length ok. However... (and this is the main reason I'm not atm sure if I want to keep it or not) the bra padding is -very- visible through the white fabric which pretty much ruins the otherwise beautifully sleek design, and presumably would become even more prominent when the suit is wet. The picture doesn't show this issue at all and it's sadly very disappointing.
