I do like this bikini top, but it does have its flaws. First of all, it is extremely shallow both all along the wire and at the apex, hence why I had to size up to 28G instead of my usual 28FF in Cleo. The band on this runs a full band size tight, as it only stretches to 25.5-26". The wires are quite wide and wrap around nearly to my back, and they also sit a lot lower than my IMF. The gore doesn't quite tack. The shape it gives me is not ideal (it flattens me out a lot), and it cuts into the top of ... my breast tissue a little bit. However, I ignore most of these issues because it's cute, I've never been able to wear a bandeau bikini top before, and it stays put whether it's dry or wet. In fact it really feels like it conforms to my body when it's wet. There's absolutely no chance of it going anywhere. It does hold a lot of water though, so it takes a while to dry.
I don't have the matching bottoms; I just picked up a cheap pair from Joe Fresh in a white and navy flower pattern and it coordinates well enough.

I bought this bandeau because I own one already in 30FF and found the fit to be more supportive than any other bandeau bikini I've tried on. Seeing as that the band was a bit loose on the 30FF, I decided I could try the 28G. I couldn't be more wrong on my assumption.
The 28G fits nicely in the band, however, the problem arose when I calculated the total bust perimeter. In losing band length, I effectively reduced the total bust perimeter. The cup volume on a 28G/30FF are clearly 1-2 sizes too small, but what made the 30FF tolerable was the fact that the band could compensate ... a bit for the lacking cup depth. If this bandeau was made in 28H, I think I would be confident to swim in it.
Regarding the construction of the bikini top, the cups are padded with foam so you needn't worry about getting cold and poking through. The gore doesn't really tack since it's over an inch wide, but I'm wondering if this is just the way it's supposed to fit. I have some fullness in the centre which results in the wires pressing down on my inner boobs. The band fastens with a single snap closure in the back. Other than the fact that I'm sized out of this bikini, I do really admire the construction and look of this bikini. Like many full bust women here, the bandeau style has eluded me for a great part of my adult life. I will keep chasing this dragon until I catch it.

This Swimsuit was my Christmas present from my sis in law. Whoot Whoot https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />
I absolutely love it. The colors are just gorgeous and the slightly retro style is really cute on.
Unfortunately the cups in the 28G are really shallow and flatten me out whilst cutting my breasts off at the top creating a definite quad boob.
The G cup is the largest cup in this bandeau style so I definitely wouldn't recommend it for large G or GG cup women. Having said that, bandeau's do tend to create that sort of look and it in no way looks indecent ... or over the top. The Gore doesn't quite sit flat but rather sits on my breast tissue due to the lack of room in the cups. The 28 band is nice and firm and doesn't seem too stretchy so the entire top holds in place nicely. Whilst I wouldn't want to squish my breasts into this all day. I think it will be nice and firm for swimming which is ultimately what I wanted https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />
