Considering this was made in 2009 and the elastic is firm, I'm thoroughly impressed with the quality. I appreciate Asian design and this fabric print caught my eye.
On me 32F Atlantis (2016 Freya Tirangle Bikini) is too much coverage for my short-waisted physique. 34E Bamboo Island is less coverage than I prefer, but it looks more like a typical ... bikini fit. It is important to note, this bikini top is significantly more shallow than 2016's Atlantis Triangle Bikini top. This 34E is a sister size to my 32F Atlantis: I quad significantly in Bamboo Island but not at all in Atlantis. Another difference is apparent in the seams. Atlantis's seams are very prominent whereas Bamboo Island's seams are more subtle. The band is twice as wide (.8") on Bamboo Island when compared to Atlantis's .4" band. I'll let you guess which band is more supportive Finally, this 34E band stretches to just 32". 32F Atlantis stretches to 32", too. Bamboo Island, in this size range, is one full cup smaller and one band size smaller than Atlantis.
I've failed to find a lightweight, supportive bra for summer. And, I am resorting to Freya triangle, bikini tops for support and nipple armor; hoping they effectively manage perspiration. They are beautiful, comfortable, and supportive. I'll sew the halter straps to the band and merrily wear these as bras. The lift provided by these wireless triangle bikinis is significantly better than wired bras provide for my close-set, center-full breasts. And, there is no pain, heat, or swelling.
