By the way, these swim tops are really chlorine resistant. I use them at least once a week and usually twice. They last a year without the fabric being destroyed by the chlorine of the pool. That's really high quality for swimwear.
I like having tight bands on swimwear because they do stretch out and I swim laps so I need everything tamped down. I also have this in a 40H and the 38HH is the same fit in the cup but a better band so my breasts don't swish around under water. However, I have been swimming in the 40H every other day or so in a chlorinated pool for six months and it still works, although it's looking shabbier at this point. I'm very impressed with that quality as chlorination destroyed my Fantasie swimwear quicker. Breasts look fairly high and round although there is ...no liner or sling inside so they are lower and I get a bit of east west action. Also this has a wider gore than my other panache products and the wires sometimes cross on top, which I don't care about because it's swimwear. Definitely a full cup fit so if you're looking for a sexy swim bra, this is not it. Instead, it's the most practical thing ever for laps. I would not want to wear it all day tanning however, because the straps are very narrow and cut in. I buy Forever 21 high waisted bottoms to go with it in various colors and voila most practical swimwear ever, everything stays in place while I'm swimming. Read more 126 more words
My only fit gripe is that the band is a bit too stretchy, I suppose because of the swimsuit material. The shape could also maybe be a tiny bit more uplifted. But overall, I love the fit and the look of the bikini, the gold label makes it look very classy, and it's a nice compromise between full-coverage and plunge. It's called a balconnette style, but the center gore is actually quite low, though the cleavage is minimal. I got it for a great price, and it's going to get a lot of use both as a bra and a bikini.
This swimtop is a true UK JJ, even though on the tag it states the same size for US, it is not. Although this bra cup is a tad too big on me, I will be keeping it since I got it at a steal on clearance. Also, since I breastfeed, this allows room during the time of the day when my breasts get full. I will be wearing it this summer and extremely glad about my purchase. It is a basic black and although it is a tad "boring", the solid color allows for exciting patterns for my bottoms,which I have 3 different prints that match perfectly!
