How adorable is this swim top?! I LOVE this!!! It fits so well that every other suit I've had before now should just go home. I love the halter, which makes the straps very adjustable. The low wires don't stab my sternum, and the long top has adjustable strings on the side to cinch it up if you're petite. I love how narrow the waist is, and how the hips are also wide enough for my 36x27x38.5 figure. Love. One note of caution: if you have no upper fullness, I could see how this would give you come boobs.
This was a huge shape mismatch for me. I've very FoB with nothing on top. This gave me a severe cone shape. I figured out that CK halter tops are NOT the right shape for me. Other than that, it's a nice tankini, well made with nice detailing, like the decorative rings at the shoulders that attach the straps. However, these rings can get in the way while swimming. There's elastic in the straps, making them stay tied. The sides are adjustable with short ties. It's a nice suit, just wrong for me.
Very short, projected, slightly narrow, center full, close-set, even breasts....
Plunge halters do not work with my breasts. When the band is supportive, my breasts are uncomfortably compressed and bisected by wires in the center. When the band is loose and provides no lift, my tissue comfortably fits in the cups and my neck aches from the halter supporting the weight.
The material drapes and camouflages well. For my dimensions, the 30" band fits my waist (26") and hips (40") better. This 32" is floating, but it is very comfortable.
Although I really like this vibrant fabric, I may have to revert to the less interesting Luau Love balconette tankini. Or, continue worrying about escapees while I swim with my daughter. Sigh.
