Real quick review on this one!

I ordered it blindly, as I could find very little fit info on it (the few reviews of it I've seen were conflicting and none mentioned shape). But I needed a swim top, I can't afford to spend $70+ on one, and I already had a really cute pair of black high-waisted briefs so I wanted an actual bikini instead of a tankini. This colorway was $35 on amazon in my size.

It. Fits.

The wires are wide, but I expected that to be the case. I had a bit of extra room at the top, but adjusting the straps fixed that. I don't really get any wrinkling at the bottom, and so far everything is staying in place - I don't find it to be particularly shallow. The band is stretchy, but comfortably so. The biggest issue I have with it is the clasp is really difficult - I cannot get it fully clasped behind my back by myself, and I can't put on bras backwards and twist them around. I do like the shape it gives me - it's more natural and not super-uplifted, but it's still very rounded at the same time.

My shape is even to full on bottom fullness, with very short and narrow roots, and very pendulous and projected. I'm going to say this top is a good option for anyone who's more FoB or has shorter roots, and it's definitely worth a try since last year's colorway is so cheap right now!

Also, in case I haven't mentioned it, the pattern is really cute. I love the bright flowers and dotted pattern on black mixed with the stripes on the edging and straps.

The real test will be how it holds up when I go swimming (which probably won't be for a few days) but, so far - I'd say it's a winner.
