A $US25 swimsuit has become the latest clothing item to receive thousands of rave reviews on Amazon.
The one-piece swimsuit includes a halter-style top, sophisticated ruched bodice, padded push-up bra, and a plunging mesh panel over the chest. It was created by Tempt Me, an online fashion retailer that sells swimwear and formal dresses.
The swimsuit is sold in eight colour options
While the standard black option appears to be popular, the swimsuit is also sold in colours such as “Rose Red” and “Malachite Green.”
There are also six sizes offered, ranging from “small (4-6)” to “16 plus.”
However, many of the swimsuit options are currently sold out. At the time of writing, the black, navy-blue, and wine-red swimsuits are sold out in size small; the rose red is sold out in sizes small through large; the yellow suit in medium and large; the green suit in size medium; the malachite green version in sizes small, large, extra large, and 16 plus; and the purple in large.
The back of the swimsuit also has unique features, with a daring cutout on the back of the swimsuit and a set of clasps connecting the halter-style top.
According to the brand’s product description on Amazon, the swimsuit is made from fabric that is “stretchy, comfortable, and soft.”
Thousands of customers have raved about the swimsuit on Amazon and say it’s ‘perfectly flattering’
Many customers said that they purchased the Tempt Me suit after other shopping trips for bathing suits were unsuccessful, and say they were shocked by how much they liked it.
“I typically can’t find suits online and have to try on a dozen or more,” one Amazon reviewer wrote. “I was shocked when I put it on and it fit perfectly!”
“I was very pleasantly surprised as I had gone suit shopping at several different stores, and couldn’t find anything that I liked,” another Amazon customer said.“This fit perfectly as expected, and is very comfortable to hang out at the beach with my three kids.”
Other customers said that they typically avoid writing product reviews, but felt an urge to spread the word about the Tempt Me swimsuit.
“I don’t usually write clothing reviews and I feel very vulnerable putting this out there for the world to see,” an Amazon customer said.“However, if I can help just one woman find her perfect suit and feel great, then it is entirely worth it.” She added: “I have never found a suit that provides so much coverage and is still perfectly flattering.”
Swimsuits from Tempt Me cost different prices depending on the colour you choose
At the time of writing, the black version of the suit retails for $US24.99 on Amazon; the yellow option, however, is $US26.99.
Tempt Me’s swimsuit isn’t the first piece of fashion to trend on Amazon
Earlier this year, a $US130 paneled puffer coat from Amazon went viral. The coat was created by a China-based brand called Orolay, and received thousands of positive reviews from customers. At the time, it nearly sold out in five different colours.
The Orolay coat is often compared to similar jackets from Canada Goose, an outerwear retailer that sells its products for prices close to $US1,000 each.
Amazon also made its mark on the fashion industry by launching the Amazon Influencer Program
Amazon quietlyrolled out the affiliate sales program in February, which allows social-media influencers to earn commission by recommending products to their followers.
The program is offered exclusively to people with large social-media followings. Those involved must also have a high-engagement rate with their audience.
Once enrolled in the program, influencers get their own “storefront” on the site where they can display their favourite products. They also get a custom URL to provide to shoppers.
Representatives for Tempt Me and Amazon did not immediately reply to INSIDER’s request for comment.
