This swimsuit is both modest and fashionable. The rise on the legs is just right, not to high or low, making for a flattering fit. The back comes down to a very tasteful hight, high enough to feel comfortable and low enough to get some sun. The stitching is both decorative and functional making for a form fitting suit. The suite is true to size, just go by the measurements on the sizing chart to be sure of a proper fit. The color is also very flattering. I purchased the charcoal color, which is a darker grey. This is a great all around swimsuit that is sure to stay in place while swimming or lounging.
