Robin Piccone 'Penelope' Crochet Overlay One Piece Swimsuit
Penelope crochet overlay one piece swim suit
This swim suit is gorgeous! I have tried on a lot of suits and this is the one! It's sexy and compliments your figure without being overly revealing. It feels like a two piece without having your midriff exposed, and the lace has nice detail work that shapes your waist line.
The sizing is a little off, I ordered a size 10 initially,I sent it back because the torso seemed short and the built in Bikini top didn't cover as much as I would have liked. I ordered the 12 and it was clearly way too big. So I have reordered the 10, in black. It will fit fine. I realized the top is meant to be a little sexy and the lace doesn't have a lot of Lycra in it. As it gets wet this suit will Stretch. I am 5'8, 164 lbs, 34 DDD, and curvy. The review I read said to order up in size. I would recommend ordering your normal swim wear size and one size up so you can compare. Nordstrom has a fabulous return policy! But remember swim wear requires under garment be worn on the bottom when trying on.
Unique style and attractive
This suit is beautiful on. For those who don't want to wear a two piece, but have the body for one, this is your suit!
I wear a size 4 or 6 in dresses. I sized up one size for swimwear to an 8 and it was perfect. I am 5'4" and 115 pounds with a 32D chest and did not have any issues with the fit. I also have a long torso but this suit was long enough for me. It's so flattering I can't wait to wear it!
Not for pear shapes
I did not love this suit. By the time I found the right size (I found it to fit true to size unlike what previous reviews say) It was way too big up top (I am a 32 B and the 6 was gapping), and the leg openings were tight. Like others, I'm looking for a sexy one piece as I just had my third baby and don't feel comfortable in a bikini, but unlike others, I did not find the crochet aspect flattering on my loose post-baby skin. When I bent forward, it pressed through the openings and was extremely unattractive. It's a well made suit, I think it would look great on the right body type. For reference, I am 5'8" 127lbs, 38" hips, 27.5" waist and 32B. The size 6 was the best fit.
