With stints at Nina Ricci and Christian Dior on his resume, Carmen Marc Valvo launched his eponymous line in 1989. His first sportswear collection was an instant success building a foundation for further collections including his first love, beautifully tailored evening wear. Since then, Marc Valvo has established a loyal Hollywood following and a Couture collection praised for its fine craftsmanship and elegant designs.
This is a very comfortable, flattering bathing suit. Is not ultra control, but still manages to be flattering and is extremely expensive looking. This is my second bathing suit from this manufacturer and I like them equally.
Planning to wear this to a wedding; it is very Sophia Loren! I love the top, and the shirred silk is really pretty. I was afraid it was going to have a camo effect, but in person you can tell it's a floral.
I think the pattern of this dress is more interesting than just a little black dress and the design hides any figure flaws. Wore it to a wedding and got lots of compliments. Delicate fabric though can snag if not careful.

Definitely a beautifully made suit and super flattering. The cut-out sides add so much to the design. Originally purchased this for beach and resort wear. However, the suit is so comfortable that I've been wearing it for all of my open water swims (san francisco bay). I love a suit that is so pretty and versatile! Thank you, Carmen Marc Valvo and BlueFly!

Gorgeous suit, but too big. Ordered 2 suits, the other size 10 was way too small (different manufacturer); this size 10 is too big. I love the suit but must return it.
Delivery was fast but today the same suit is $17.00 more, why is that?
