Flattering and Modest Suit

I just got this for my mom and she loves it! Its coverage is great, but also isn't too bulky. She says its super comfortable and its very flattering!
For the body conscious and the curvy. ;)
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Who says horizontal stripes make you look chubby? I found this swimsuit to be incredibly flattering, and I-like most women- feel super self-conscious in a swimsuit (hence the one piece) But I love this suit. It makes your chest look great without making you feel like you're going to pop out when you swim. It's a real problem. We've all been there.
I'm not a competitive swimmer or anything, but I like to play at the lake or dip in the hot tub, and it's perfect for both uses. Comfortable, doesn't ride up. It's a win.
- Fit: True to size

Background: I teach Aquacise and wanted a new class suit...sturdy and modest while still feeling a bit fun and capable of being a "fun" suit too.. I'm 37, 5'4", 120-125, 32A (yes, there are usually more bra options in the girls' dept, though I'm happy to report they lack any sort of sexiness), usually a size 2, and built small (dentists, physical therapists, and a surgeon report I have a child-sized skeleton despite technically being avg height)
Review: The small was def the right choice of size and I did LOVE the back straps, at least on dry land. Sadly, beyond that I didn't find it flattering at all. Although my body is usually underwater, I look for suits that help me feel confident in front of the class. I'm told it's mostly my silly head, but I sometimes swear my under-the-navel pooch sticks out beyond my chest! I look for a suit that helps me feel positive. I hoped the removable pads would be sturdy enough to help give me a little shape (I shopped around and other descriptions made me think this would do that) but they are barely enough to prevent letting everyone know when I'm a bit chilly! The headline says "Like A Shining Beam of Style"...clearly they mean high-beams!
My last suit, a TYR, had enough oomph without feeling like a push-up bra (I don't want full-on fake, just a little help!), but it's losing steam and I'm due to replace it.
Final Verdict: A miss. Sadly, I'll be out the cost of the return ship since this is going back once I get the chance to hit the post office and look into the best priced option (think I can beat the cost of using their return label, though convenience may win out...not intended as a complaint, I know it's late in the summer and would prob need to look online for a good one-piece in my size).
