Couldn't be happier. Best suit I've ever owned.
I'm a 36M in elomi. I went up a size in the band, as recommended. Got a 38M (US). It's extremely comfortable. Excellent support.
I will say that proportionally, I'm smaller in the waist. I carry most of it in my chest. It just fits through the stomach. There is no extra room. Which feels attractive and youthful, but I can see this not being the best suit ever for someone who carried more in the tummy.

Follow the tip in description. The fit is really tight in chest. The fabric is nice. Looks flattering.

Love it. Ordered a 38J, as it is recommended to go up in the band and down in the cup. Ordinary size in other UK sized bras like Elomi is 34-36J. There is a bit of room to spare in the cup, which is a new experience for me!
I've had huge-- massive-- breasts since the start. At the same time, I've never been *that* overweight. I have the rare big tits, small rib cage problem. I wear an American dress size12- 14. Sure, I'm not fit or thin and don't claim to be. But I always needed to size way up in the band for bras, with the largest cup available typically, to contain myself. It was like bras that I could fit into we're made for ladies with fake boobies or much much heavier women. They typically offered a little support and kept them essentially pushed the girls down towards my stomach. They got all moist and itchy. It's gross.
Swimsuits were a LOST cause. Suits with underwire never ever ever worked. They made me spill out crazy cleavage, as if the manufacturer assumed that a 34 band woman with a J cup must have silicone and therefore didn't need support. I resorted to soft cup shelf bra one pieces made for women much heavier.
I was so nervous about this suit. Waiting three weeks to have it shipped from England seemed bananas. I can go to a swimwear specialty store, spend two hours trying on a couple dozen suits and leave empty handed. Why would anything from the internet have a chance?
It's fantastic. It's sexy but not skanky. Support for the boobs, nothing spills over, it's comfortable. I don't look like a stripper or a grandma in a spandex tank top. If I ordered it again, I would go down in the cup- as the site recommends. But honestly... I couldn't be happier. I almost never write reviews.. this deserves it.

I loved this tankini as it was very flattering in the stomach area and the style of the straps/bra were a) very comfortable and b) looked really classy.
My bra size with curvy Kate is 34j obviously finding a flattering swim suit is hard due to my size chest. I chose 38gg in this tankini as band sizes run a little small in swimwear and I could have got a 40 back as I hate super tightness but this one was doable.
The material is really forgiving as after just having a baby I felt really sexy as it hid my stretch marks and it didn't cling like average swimwear does to every roll and bump, it's a cotton like material to touch.
I would definitely get this tankini again in a different colour for my next holiday.
