I got one last year and I love it. Its just one of the S-M-L kind not the ones with actual bra sizes. I would say the quality isn’t fantastic, but it provides support which is sooo nice and something I haven’t been able to find in other suits.

A small is roughly a size 0-2 in their swimsuits.  In most lines that would be an XS so be careful.  I would assume each size above is the next two up.  I really like my VS bikinis.

I always order one size up with VS. They run small comapred to other brands.

As a 36C I wore a medium top.  As a size 12 booty I wore a size L bottom.  I love their suits, especially the halters, for larger busts.  I also love the selection for the bikinis since you can mix and match the styles.  They hold up very well too, I’ve had many throughout the years and have yet to have one fade in color or unravel or anything.  They last forever!

They fit great, I love VS bikinis! I’m size 2-4 with a 34D on top, and I buy a small bottom with a medium top.

I have a couple and love them.  Maybe not the nicest ones I’ve ever owned, but great for the price.  As far as sizing goes, I buy medium panties there (size 6 pants, 36C bra) and I have medium bathing suits.

I have several VS bathing suits and they have all held up fine. I am a size 6 bottom and a 34 C and the medium top and bottom fit me perfectly

Because everyone is built differently, you really need to try them on before you buy. Unfortunately that isn’t possible with mail order catalogs or online sites.

I thought they were pretty true to size.

Well, for me, I’m a bit on the small side… 32A and like I have with most shirts, I didn’t really fill out the top.  So unless you are on the bigger side than me, I think you should be fine.

I just went into VS yesterday and some stores carry swimwear.  I tried on a bandeau and they usually flatten me and I don’t like them but their one bathing suit looks great on me.  i hear only certain stores carry them.  Why don’t you call your local VS store and see if they know of any stores in the area that carry swimwear.

I love my VS bathing suit. I’ve had it for at least 4 or 5 years now I think. I got the “Very Sexy” line, which has mega push up which I love, LOL! The pads are removeable though if you don’t want mega lookatme boobs. I’d have to agree, order the bottoms a size up from what you typically are. I have a booty, so a large fits me fine, although over time/with wear it’s started to stretch a bit and it’s not fitting as nicely as it used to. But that being said, I think it’s been longer than 5 years since I bought it and I’m not upset it’s starting to show it’s age! Which reminds me, I should really go order another one for the honeymoon…. I’m not sure I would get a bathing suit from anywhere else I love mine so much!

they run kinda small for me. I wear a size 5 underwear typically and wear a small in their string bikinis for bottoms but i wear their 36DD top and it’s just barely big enough for me. I’d prefer a bigger cup size but they don’t have it. Support’s not bad. I get the typical bra top style one from Miracle Suit. I certainly can’t fit into any of their other bikinis without looking like a hooker

I found them to be somewhat flexible.  I once bought two bikinis on clearance, and they only had the following avaliable:

Bikini 1 – small top, medium bottom
BIkini 2 – medium top, small bottom

I couldn’t even tell you which one was which size now, and both seemed to fit fine.  Especially since a lot of the tops you are tying on anyways!
