I picked this up recently on a Figleaves sale, as I wanted a few more bikinis/tankinis for summer!
If you are looking for a vintage-style tankini, look no further! I was floored at how absolutely pin up girl this tankini looks on! The stripes are reminiscent of a sailor stripe style, and I really think it would look great with red bottoms instead of the striped ones that 'match'. The silhouette of the bra part is slightly pointy and slightly east-west, which helps give a rockin' 50's hourglass silhouette. Wow!
The strap is a halter strap which can be removed, so you can wear it strapless. The support isn't as ... great strapless, but it's still totally fine. I'd prefer traditional straps, but it looks really nice.
The cups are padded kind of weirdly, like the padding feels a little rigid in a weird way. It still feels totally fine.
I also should say that I wore this on the tightest hooks as I typically need a 28 band, but it is VERY firm on the tightest hooks -- no 28 band necessary!
