Yay! Collectif x Playful Promises Toucan Frilled swimsuit arrived! Stupid cute, remarkably sexy, comfortable and some uhhhh... WOW?

Measurements & fit for extreme hourglass are good at 36 bust, 28 waist, 38 hip. Can't believe the bottom and waistline in this aren't digging in or require endless readjustment from booty eating up the bottom. So flexible, light, yet supportive. Sturdy medium weight outer, lots of detail in the print.
Quite a bit baggy in the waistline as mine runs rather smaller than this size, but it's not visible from the outside, what relief. The upper is also impeccably drafted and constructed, nice proportions which should be good to go for a normal US6 I'd think. Plenty enough strap for multiway, they are solid and have light give.
Was really concerned about how is one supposed to get INTO the suit as it's underbust is 25" but turns out it stretches to about 38" (eventually was able to slide my wide derrière through it).

Now for the omg part:

The bust for their UK 10 are approximately relative to a 30B cup. Inside each cup is a whopping 6.5" deep, maybe 4.5" tall. Wires 4.5" wide, 3" tall. At 28GG, side full & wide breasted but not wide set, this is pure LOL are you kidding.

Currently puzzling over how to save this, as my breasts run about 10.5-11.25 deep apiece covering a whole lot of my upper torso, leaving this suit's bust shape to cut in very hard on both inner & outer with the upper cup folding back in terribly. Stretch the cups out overnight over a cup or bowl? Cut something in the middle out to add a new piece into the cups? Make another ruffle to cover the top? Cups are currently very... 'Hi, welcome to my areolas'.
