    Love love this bathing suit. I think its super sexy specially the back. Its more so than a much more skin revealing modern bathing suit.

    Thank you! I must admit I was a bit shocked to see how big the pictures got here. I had trouble uploading and in the end, tech support did it for me, so I couldn’t see and edit it before publishing. If you follow the link to my blog, there are pictures there of the bathing suit laid out flat, so you can see the glossy and matte details, and get a better glimpse of the front skirt thing
