I can't write a full review yet because I haven't worn this beauty in the water yet, but I'm going to include some other measurements for the body of the swimsuit, and relate that to my own body measurements so you can get an idea of how it fits.
First of all, my own measurements are roughly 25" waist, 38.5" hips, and 5'2.5" height. I definitely have an hourglass figure. The body of this bathing suit is roughly 19.5" long, laid flat, from the top of the gore to the bottom of the crotch. The length of this suit fits me well in the torso. It is the ... smallest bit loose around my waist, and measures roughly 12" flat, however, the material is extremely stretchy. The hips fit me well, measuring roughly 14" flat across the top of the leg seams.
As for the bra fit, it's not bad! I got this suit at a discounted price on /r/braswap and I was unsure how it would fit since I also have the original Lucille bandeau top, and I have to wear that in 28G. However, this fits a little bit deeper and narrower, or at least feels like it, compared to Lucille. However, I wouldn't call these cups deep by any other comparison. They are still quite shallow, especially at the underwire. I have a fair amount of empty space at the bottom of the cups. The band is pretty stretchy, and if I feel like I need to after I actually go swimming in this, I may take the band in to make it feel more secure. The gore gives the illusion of tacking, but it's a soft tack, and I think the bottom of the "gore" floats. Speaking of which, I measured the gore height from the top of the gore straight down to the parallel of the lowest point of the underwire.
