I have a hard time finding swimsuits that are attractive, yet modest, but this one is perfect! I did not have to make any alterations and the fit is great. The instructions were very clear and I was able to sew this up in a few hours even though I haven't sewn a swimsuit before. The only thing I wish was included was instructions on how to add soft cups to the shelf bra. I had to search online to find tutorials on how to do this.
