    32G

    Didn't fit

    Ok, here's the deal about Asos Swim. THEY LIE. They claim their house brand sizing is UK. It's not. It's US. I learned this the hard way, by ordering a "30G" in 2 different styles, and they came tagged as UK 30F/US 30G. Since I wear a UK 28G, I knew it was trouble before I even tried it on. Little did I know how bad it could actually get.

    The other style I'll review later is workable. But not only is this hidden underwire bad boy not the size you'd expect it to be when ordering, it runs incredibly small. ... The 30G was so bad I didn't take pictures, because they would have been XXX rated and unsuitable for anyone's eyes. Simply put, it was a nipple hat. I immediately returned it, and they had no other 30 band sizes available. Since the 30 band was tight anyways, after a little mental math I went with this - which, when I ordered it, I actually had to order "32I" from the drop down box. This is 2 full band sizes and 2 full cup sizes up from what I usually wear.

    There are positives about this bikini top that I promise I will eventually write about, so my advice to you (if you want to try it) is to size up. And then size up again. Seriously - order a size that sounds so utterly ridiculous to you that it makes you giggle when you're lying in bed at night thinking about it.

    Firstly, the measurements. This "32" band stretches to 28.75. Cup width is 6.1, cup depth is 9.0. Anyone who pays attention to me knows that 6.1 is a full inch wider than what I actually need, and 9.0 is most definitely not the typical depth of a 32G anything. This actually doesn't fit me in any remotely technical definition of the word, but it's still good enough, plus I can't return it anymore for reasons I'll mention in a bit.

    The fit:
    Because it is so wide and the cups are relatively tall, once you find a size that appropriately covers your tatas for public display in a location other than a nude beach, it gives somewhat of a minimizing effect. Personally, that is fine with me, because I don't want to take my titties for a walk on the beach. I'd rather they be flattened/contained so I can chase after my kid, instead of in-your-and-everyone-else's-face. To each their own, though, so if you don't want a minimizing bikini top - move along, this isn't the style you're looking for.

    This little top is offered in a variety of solid colors and apparently a print, that I saw nowhere on the website. I picked white, because white goes with everything including my tan, and I can get whatever cheap bottoms I find on sale at Target and be good. The website says this style is lightly padded - it's not. It's constructed of a solid swim-fabric outer layer with a mesh inner layer. This would be okay in black or any other color, but the the downside to this "white" is that it's more transparent than actually white. Seriously ladies, I could SEE the COLOR of my NIPPLES through this thing when it was DRY. I didn't want to chance getting it wet.... *hides* so I stole some nude colored removable liner pads from an old bikini top and stitched them into the lining of this top. Get this - you can see the nude colored pads through the top!! But at this point, since I've messed with it so much it's not returnable anymore, I don't care and I'd rather some stranger be staring at my liner pads than at my nipples. Good thing it was only $17.

    Do note - despite it being unlined, it is supportive and structured enough that you shouldn't need any kind of padding or additional lining to improve the actual shape the top gives.

    The positives - it is supportive, the wires are long and tall on the sides instead of those crappy little 5" flat "underwires" in VS underwired bikini tops, and there is side boning. Side boning, in a $17 bikini top! Everybody dance! The side wings are tall to hold all of your side boob in (and possibly poke the armpits of short ladies everywhere), and despite being minimizing, there is a bit of cleavage. The top does have the effect of pushing your girls to the center. The gore is low so it's not stabby, and my favorite part about this whole mess of a swim top is that the wires are hidden, so it doesn't scream "I'm a bra made of swimsuit material." I have this thing about bra swim tops - if I wanted to wear a bra to the beach, I'd wear my damn bra to the beach. I picked this style specifically because online it did not look like a bra, and in reality, it really doesn't. The super low gore means I could tie a little bow around it to change up the look a bit, which I'll probably do because I have these polka-dot hipster bottoms with removable faux side ties that are just sitting in my closet taking up space and at least now they'll have a purpose.

    Summary - simple and cute, supportive, would be great for wide and shallow ladies, size way-the-hell-up, and don't order white.

      That's crazy with the sizing up! I've never had that problem with them, but I've mostly ordered one pieces. Their sizes in general are really small though. I order from them in a size 2 F-G cup when I buy my swimsuits. They are low cost and quite supportive though. I'm definitely guilty of keeping VS bikini tops around even though they're about as supportive as mermaid shells.

      This review made me snort-laugh, and now I have to clean coffee off my iPad. Well done! :)

      I swear they make their bands with the old +4 method in mind! Ive had a similar experience where i could not even come CLOSE to getting a 30 hooked when i measure 27"! I mean i could have almost used like double the band amount that was there!

    • Oh that's crazy! I could hook the 30. In fact I prefer the 30, but the 32 is ok. I mean, I couldn't get a cup size big enough in a 30 band... they only go up to "I" and I don't think that would have been enough.

    • Haha woops just reread it! I thought you said the 30 was too tight in the band :)

    • It was snug. I could get it on though, and with swim tops especially, the tighter the better.

    • That sounds like a mess! I'm sorry they didn't work out for you :(

      I was prompted with a "switch to US version" or something for their site on mobile.
      It said "you'll see localized stories, currency, and sizing".
      Idk if that's supposed to mean US sizing?
      I think they should just stick to UK completely. I feel like most people who buy outside of the bra matrix use UK sizing anyway.

      Makes me wonder if things can get mixed up when they see someone ordering from the US(regardless of if they've switched to US version?).

      But yeah, this makes me super anxious to ever buy from their site for sure :(
      Guess I lucked out with eBay.

      That could totally make sense, if when I went to the US size they converted the sizes to be "helpful." But some tops that weren't ASOS brand said US 30G or whatever size in the drop down box. ASOS tops didn't have the US before the size so I just assumed it was UK like they said it was! Oh well, at least returning the one was super easy and free.

    • I saw that and was thinking that while it sounds helpful, I could totally see it causing problems if it does what I thought it might do!

      That's a relief that the return was easy though :)

    32G

    Didn't fit

    Of all the Asos G cup bikinis I tried, this is the style that I was most looking forward to, that I most desperately wanted to like.

    The Hidden Underwire bikini is available in Paper Floral (grey brown with muted flower print) and a ton of really nice looking solid colours including black and white. I bought the Paper Floral print.

    When worn... on me anyway... the result is way too much cleavage. In all these photos I have swooped and scooped to create some definition. But I gave myself a bit of a shake and almost fell out of the center of the bikini (and to show you the ... natural result, I took a close up of that too!).

    The underwires are spread very wide in this shape. They don't really push you up, they really push you in from the lower sides. I have quite centered breast tissue, and clearly this style is just not giving me enough coverage towards the center of my chest. Either that, or I have been supplied with a size E cup mislabelled as G.

    I feel as though this cup is about 3 cup sizes to small for me. But I think that is the style, not the actual size.

    Would suit women with very firm breast tissue, or wide set breasts.

    The band is a great fit. The fabric print and quality was lovely to the touch. The bikini is made very well and I think it would look stunning on the beach. This is more like what I would find in one of our local Australian surf shops, not like what I'm used to from full-cup ranges.

    Also - the bikini bottom for the floral print is awful on the bum, the size 10 was a good width across the hips for me, but didn't cling properly to my bum cheeks at all, just kind of hovered over them. I would definitely be tugging all day to keep my bottom covered decently, an I barely have an ass!

    If you're after a Nicki Minaj look? I think this is your bikini.

      Oh, I forgot to add your swimwear reviews are very helpful!

    • Thank you :) I showed my 38DD sister this bikini top today and she is convinced that it's mislabeled!

    30F

    Didn't fit

    Ughh... I was so hopeful when I bought this bikini top that I would finally have one that fits... Unfortunately, it absolutely doesn't. I was warned by lcl0706 that it ran small, but I assumed that going up a cup size to 30F UK would solve that issue. I don't mind a bit of cleavage with my swimsuits after all. Unfortunately, this arrived with a 7.2" cup depth. That is ludicrous for a 30F. It would be ludicrous for a 30E. WTF ASOS. What is with your sizing? The band runs tight, and I would consider it a TTS 28 band (stretching exactly to 28 inches). ... Seriously, look at these pictures and cry at my pain. This top is also a shape mismatch for me as it's wide/average set and quite shallow. Overall just a major miss. The top also just feels fairly cheap. I hate to say that, but the quality is around Walmart level. I did get it for $15 though so I guess I can't complain too much. Sigh... I shall never have a good bikini. Cry with me ladies :,(

      Sigh... how are they this missized?? It's crazy!

    • I ended up buying a 34 DD/E from asos when I'm typically 30F. It did turn out the band was too big once I got it wet but it was the size that fit the best dry. Different bikini top though

    • If you can handle it being so damn wide a 30FF may cover better, as crazy as it sounds. I ended up buying a 32G which sounded freakin insane but it covers the tatas. I also bent the wires somewhat narrower.

  4. Runs tight in the band and small/shallow in the cups. I went up 1 sister size in the band (30E -> 32DD) and 1 more cup size (-> 32E). 32F worked for me as well.
    The bikini top has wires but no lining, padding and is not too high-cut/covering.

    I already went swimming in this bikini top and I like it - it looks nice and keeps everything in place. It dries pretty quickly, which is nice too.
    However, I would not recommend this type of bikini if you have boobs with much projection, since the cups do not provide much depth.

    • I've learned through trial and error with ASOS - they do not use UK sizing like they claim. I ordered a mix n match halter top in 30G that came tagged as "US 30G, UK 30F." It doesn't run quite so small though, and runs big in the band, so it's workable for me.

      I also ordered this particular hidden underwire style in a 30G that was tagged the same way, as a UK 30F, and it was a TINY 30F with a very tight band. More like a 28E - it was a nipple hat. So not only are their sizes misleading, they also run small.

      I don't think this is a bad bikini top, you just have to order it fully aware of how it's sized. I returned my "30G" and ordered a 32I. Up one in the band, and up 2 in the cups from my first order. Theoretically, it should be a UK 32G, which is 2 bands and 2 cup sizes bigger than my 28G bra size. But based on how small my first one ran, it should be closer to fitting. If not, I'm SOL because that's as big as they come and I won't go bigger than a 32 band. It gets here tomorrow, so I will update then.

    30DD

    Didn't fit

    An unpadded plunge shape neckholder bikini with underwires and side boning.
    It pushes the bust to the front (and tend to pop out in the middle if the cups are too small)
    Runs 1 band size smaller than indicated, and 1-2 cup sizes smaller in the cups.

    32DD

    Didn't fit

    It's a classical plunge shape neckholder bikini. The cups are not padded, but thinly lined.
    It comes with underwires and side boning.
    The band runs very tight, about 1 band size smaller than indicated, and the cups are very small (approx. 2 cup sizes).
    The top does a great job at pushing the boobs to the front, but since the cups are so small, they tend to pop out in the middle.

    32DD (sister size to my regular 30E) was okay in the band, but too smal in the cups.

    30E

    Didn't fit

    I tried several sizes of this bikini top. My regular size of 30E was both too tight in the band and too small in the cups. I recommend going up 1 sister size in the band, and also up 1-2 cup sizes.
