Nanette Lepore 'Charmer' Bikini Bottoms
I am looking forward to wearing this bikini soon. I really like the navy color and the reversible pattern. According to the size chart, I should have gotten the XS, but I followed the sizing advice and got the small instead, which fits perfectly (I am 5'6, 33-26-35). Coverage is good, but not too much. My only complaint, and the reason I gave 4 instead of 5 stars, is that the tags are sown into the seam along the back of the bikini. So, when it's reversed, the tags show and I am not sure how I will be able to cut the tags off without damaging the seam and not have residual tags show. (For the coordinating top, the tags on held on with string, so it's easy to take tags off there; wish they had done the same for the bottoms). But I really like the pattern and will try to make it work.
Not enough coverage in back
I absolutely love the pattern and overall look of this suit--the top is perfect for my small chest. But there is not enough coverage in back on the bottoms, and I'm so disappointed! I'm 5'4", weigh 110, a size 0, and have a very small bottom. I ordered the size x-small bottoms and also the small, just to be safe. The small does not even cover half of my tiny bottom. If you want that look, then you will love this suit. But I need more coverage in back! I love the top so much though (and it's reversible!) that I'm thinking I will look for solid navy bottoms to go with it.
