I bought this top impulsively while browsing Breakout. I can't remember the last time I even wore a swimsuit, never mind a two-piece, but I liked the nautical look of it so much I couldn't resist. It's so cute! I love the stripes, the cup design, and the buttons on the gore. There's even a little gold Panache charm sewn onto the left side band. Adorable.

The material is standard non-shiny swimsuit fabric, with not too much stretch. The cups are unpadded and lined in white mesh. I do get a little bit of nipple poke, but the contrast between the navy band on the top of the cups and the stripes hides it pretty well. The back has one plastic interlocking closure similar to a typical front-close bra clasp, but bigger.

I'm pleasantly surprised by the fit and look in person! It's really flattering. The band is snug but not too tight. The cups fit pretty well on both sides with no quadding or gaping, and somehow manage to hide my asymmetry. The gore tacks comfortably. I was concerned that the band would be too thin on me and would accentuate my back bulges, but it doesn't. The only small issue I have with it is the straps - they're spaced wide for me and I can see them slipping with wear. It would be good if it had a j-hook or a way to cross the straps in the back, but I can finagle something if it becomes a problem. Overall, I really like it. The matching high-waisted striped retro bottom didn't work for me (waist comes up too high), but I'm exchanging for a midrise solid navy bottom that I expect will be much better. I look forward to finding an excuse to wear the set this summer!
