This bikini is very narrow, projeted and the colours and knit pattern are lovely and bright.
Regarding the construction, the cups are made of three parts, in a balconette construction. The two bottom parts are lined with a non stretch fabric, while the top part is stretchy. The band is made from two layers of fabric and it closes with a metal clip - which I find sturdier than plastic ones. The wires are narrow and quite hard and quite tall - overall similar to EM.
The materials look like they're good quality, but I can't judge how well they survive in the long run since the bikini ... is new. The colours are very bright, the blue is a strong royal blue and the pink is definitely on the neon side.
I also tried the padded version of this bikini in the same size (Julia Big) and I found it to be more projected - my bust perimeter while wearing it is ~4cm larger than for the unpadded version.
The sizing for these two bikinis is consistent and the band is true to size. Regarding sizing, my go-to size is a 36GG UK / 80L in Comexim. I wouldn't necessarily say that the padded version fits larger, but the unpadded one is a bit more size forgiving, because the top section is stretchy.
The matching bottoms run small. I got the mini brief in a size M, which measures flat (only the fabric, not the ties) 31cm waist and the height is 22.5cm. I also tried the maxi brief in XXL, which measures flat 39cm waist, 29cm height.
