I would recommend Catalina sew the pads in place as they are not accessible by a pocket therefore you have to wrangle with the pads (inside the swimsuit) to get them straight. Otherwise I love it. Comfy. I’m 50 and large chested for my frame 38 D. I can jump up to catch a ball in the pool in this suit and not worry about falling out of the top of it. This is a big deal to me. It comes down low enough on the torso that you can opt to show very little of your waist but still be able to go to the restroom easier than a one piece. Great suit in my opinion. Would love it if the pads didn’t move or were easier to straighten out.
