Not true to size

I really wanted to love this swim suit. It's super cute out of the package. The colors are vibrant and the pattern is flattering. I was encouraged by the ability to order my bust size. The body of the suit, however, is very narrow. Instead of laying nicely it squeezes your midsection like a tube top. Not flattering whatsoever. The shape of the bottoms, too, is unflattering. I prefer a little skirt over my swim suit bottoms. I don't require much, but just something to feel a little less exposed. This, too, was quite tight and the criss-cross "sarong style" at the front might be cute if it were a bit longer. But combine the short, super-tight style with the fabric criss-cross exactly where you're trying to cover doesn't do it. This went back after a good laugh. For reference, I'm 5'3", 140#.
