Swimwear of the Week: Seafolly Summer Garden Boyleg Maillot

Oh yeah, it's time for another Swimsuit of the Week. Though I've only recently gotten interested in this aspect of the intimate apparel industry, Seafolly is a name I've heard many times before. Everyone seems to love their swimwear, and after clicking around a bit, I can see why. I first spotted their Summer Garden Boyleg Maillot on Anthropologie (now sold out), and ever since then, I can't stop thinking about it. And why yes, in case you're wondering, my picks for Lingerie/Swimwear of the Week are always something I've been obsessing over for at least the past few days. Authentic addict realness, right here.
Not only do I dig the bright floral pattern (and the fact that it's on a black background as opposed to a white one), I love the sweetheart halter neck and I adore, absolutely adore, the boycut legs. Pinup-style swimwear is having another moment and this is a great take on that aesthetic without being too vintage (particularly for people who feel the whole retro thing can be a bit costumey). And though I wouldn't call myself a fan of ruching (I can honestly take it or leave it), I know that many people are, so that element is something to keep in mind as well.
Unfortunately, as I mentioned above, the suit is sold out on Anthropologie and it costs about $50 more on ASOS ($200 instead of $148). Seafolly itself has a similar, bikini leg version for $190, but it looks like the only retail outlet carrying the boyleg suit at a comparable price point is Amazon (i.e. the place that I always forget about when it comes to buying lingerie). Their one-piece is on sale for $148 (down from $171). This swimsuit is available in US sizes 4-12. The reviews I've read say it runs a bit small, so that would be something to keep in mind. I'm not sure if I'd wear a size 12 in this brand or if I'd be sized out completely. Hopefully, Seafolly extends their size range soon, especially as they increase in popularity.
What do you think of this swimsuit? Would you wear something like it? Please share your thoughts!
