Lucky find! The shop lady TOLD me it was small fitting, I wouldn't believe her. The result? Impulsive bikini shopping...
This bra goes in swim wear sizes, not in bra sizes! 36 refers to European confection sizes, as this is a Dutch brand. It seems to run small-ish if this is confection, I normally wear a 34... but maybe it only runs small on ME because it has to cover my most un-Dutch body parts. (bum and boobs)
I tried on a few, Beach Life apparently makes bikinis in confection size 36-44, and this particular one had a smaller band than the others. According to the size charts, this should ... be a 32 bra size. I tried on 3 different tops in this size, and they fit like a large 28F, 30E and 32D respectively.
It can be worn in several different ways according to the label, I'm not so sure about that. The halter works, it's reasonable as a strapless for sitting around in... but putting on the full straps doesn't seem to work as well. Probably because I could do with a smaller band, which they don't stock... because I'm the only one who would need it.
This one is definitely smaller in the band than my Cleo Swimwear Hattie Twist Bandeau Bikini Top (CW0043) so I hope it stays that way. If it doesn't, it's easily altered.
