Free People x Beach Riot
not worth the $
So for a bathing suit that cost me $120, I was expecting it to be perfect. I ignored the fact that the front wasn't shown in the pictures, which should have been a sign. The bottom part of the suit where the crossing is, isn't right. I can't put my finger on exactly what is wrong with it, not sure if it wasn't sewn correctly or what but it wasn't executed in the right way. When you put it on, the bottom part looks lumpy on the side, Not flattering AT ALL. The top of the suit in the front goes straight across, in case anyone wanted to know since the pictures don't show. The straps are way too long and I won't wear the suit because they could slip off my shoulders at any given time. Def. returning. I'm so disappointed.
Really wanted to love it but...
I have been trying to find a simple black one piece for this summer and was so excited to get this in the mail. I'm usually a small but had to order a medium because I have read other reviews stating that the bathing suits have been really small (I'm 5'4 32b and around 122lbs). When I tried it on it fit exactly how I wanted for the back and was super cute, however the front there was extra fabric on the sides and the straps were too loose..
Great idea, badly executed. I loved the color (green) and pretty much assumed this would not be a real "swimsuit" because I could tell the straps would be inclined to fall forward but I was happy to accept it as just a stylie lounge by the pool suit. The problem with mine was in the area just about the crisscross lacing on the sides. It was either sewn improperly or it was due to the tautness of the crisscross but my suit bunched up and stuck out on both sides just above the crisscross and would not lay flat against my body. So it looked like I had two growths coming out of the sides of me. No matter which way I positioned the suit on my hips (pulled down a little lower or pulled up higher), the suit stuck out a good inch on both sides.
I waited to get this suit so long and was so excited. First off the color is not this color! It is dark army green which was the first thing. Secondly the fit on the bottom fits tight like a swim suit but its like the straps arent tight enough to keep the top pulled tight. The front view makes this suit look like your on the swim team with a saggy top thats prob. why they didnt put a photo of the full front. And the model has her arms up and chest pushed out far. And finally the suit is lined with black I think the liner was made to big for the suit there was black material hanging out all over. Total bummer. But I have to give it to the photographer 5 star they def. know how to make bad things look good in a photo. Im returning.
This suit caught my eye as soon as it hit the website, and I ordered in advance, waiting patiently for it to come in stock. I wanted it to work so badly - the lace up sides are adorable....in the photos. There's a reason why all the photos of the model are from the side. That's the only way at all this is in any way flattering.
