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=":)" />
Cute!! This swim top seems well designed with thoughtful features like removable / convertible straps and the cups are somewhat molded/ padded which I like. The center gore is wrapped in contrast blue fabric (matches the straps) and a white plastic heart is threaded through the fabric. The fabric has a chevron pattern over the seamed cups, which draws the eye upward - nice touch.
The good: The band is nice and snug: love! The ok: The cups are a touch wider than my shape, but that's ok The bad: I get a little quad-boob on one side. This is acceptable for me because I'm still losing weight and my boobs are adjusting from coming off B/C. I imagine the cups will stretch out a bit over time and swimming - and I know a cup size up would be too big.
Overall I look forward to enjoying swimming in this set. I got the swim briefs in XS and I'd say they run a touch big if that's helpful to anyone.
The band is nice and snug (26-28 inch ribcage). The material is at least as thick as the padded cups of the Juna, and there is a vertical seam bisecting each cup. The colors are vibrant and I love the shape of the bandeau. The enclosure is a plastic clasp that "snaps" into place easily. The style of the straps are classic multi-way, with 4 loops in the usual places on the bandeau.
Aesthetics aside, the cups are shaped for short (maybe average?) breasts, so I'm immediately slammed with orange-in-a-glass because of my low-set, tall (and therefore shallow) shape. I quad and can't fill the apex of the cup. I had such high hopes from reading "tall cups" in reviews, but they were probably from women with higher roots since I found it way too closed on top. From my various fitting issues, I can tell that this top will not stay on me very long in the water, so it's not a keeper for me.
This swimsuit is AWESOME! It has detachable straps and can be worn strapless...and it stays up! The clip on the back ensures that it is secure and doesn't fall off. It fits so much better than my old triangle top swimsuits. It actually supports my boobs instead of just covering my nipples.
LOVE this swimsuit! I have a little bit of spillage on the top, which might be fixed by sizing up a cup, but it feels secure on my ribcage and doesn't slip down. No pokage either! The fabric is great, I just love this swimsuit - as well as all the details like the heart on the front of the cleavage. Can't wait to get this thing out in the water!
cute, but not really my thing. the cups are really tall, wide-ish, and shallow. there's one external vertical seam so the cups have an odd angular look to them. my major issue was that the cup was just too tall - i'm pretty short and i felt like it visually just took up too much space on me.
since it's a swimsuit, there's only one hook - it felt pretty normal for a 30 band. two detachable straps, the underwire is hidden pretty well, i just wasn't really feeling it.
I have a shallow and wide root. I can't fully scoop & swoop into this bandeau bikini top, or else I get quad-boob, especially near the armpits, as the (removable) straps are somewhat centered, rather than right next to my armpits. Note that there are 2 individual bra-style straps (not a halter). The cups themselves are fairly shallow, but pretty closed on top. However, the cups are "tall", so it works ok.
I deliberately ordered a 28 because I was worried that in the water it would expand and feel too loose if I ordered a 30. It is quite firm, but I'm ok with that.
Despite the fit issues, this is a really cute bikini. Love the colors, the retro styling, and the contrast piping. I wear US size 4, and the UK 8 bottoms were perfect.
