Excellent quality! I really like this swim top, it's super cute. Unfortunately, it's the wrong shape for me. The top is much too closed and the cups are too deep for my shallow breasts (especially the smaller one). I would recommend it for someone with less upper fullness and more projection.
As a preface, I'm lucky enough to have never really struggled with finding swimsuit tops that fit decently. I can usually just pick up any S or M size top in a department store and it will fit. So I'd never felt the need to seek out a bra sized swim top. However, I found this one at a great price and couldn't resist.
I really like this top! The band is firm and supportive. I feel like there are fit issues that I can't quite put my finger on though. I think maybe the cups are too tall. It feels like there is empty space at the tops. ...Or I don't think I completely fill out the cups. I'm not sure it sits in the right place. The fabric at the bottom of the cups wrinkles when the top is both on and off, so I'm not sure if it's me or the construction of the top. These issues are all minor to me and I think it looks good and is comfortable. I don't swim often and I got it as a good deal so I'm quite happy.
My biggest complaint is that the matching bottoms seem to be seriously vanity sized. I own the XS pair and they fit my ~38" hips perfectly. I would usually go for a M size bottom. I usually wear at least a 5 or 6 in pants!! I'm not XS haha. It sucks that smaller ladies than me might not get to have this set because the bottoms are made to be so big. Read more 159 more words
I LOVE this bikini - it's so cute and summery! Unfortunately I grew out of it before I ever got the chance to wear it. The design avoids it looking too bra-like, as you can't see it has wires from the front. In usual Panache style, the cups are quite wide and shallow, and are lightly padded. The construction feels really good.
It fastens with a usual bikini clip and feels reasonably secure. The straps are detachable for versatility, and it works for a 28 back with these attached. As it's swimwear it feels a little tighter than your average 30 back bra.
I can't comment on how it holds up in the water, as I've never worn it, but it's a really lovely set.
