Women's Beach Living Provence Floral V-neck Bikini Top
The almost perfect bikini top
I have a 36D chest, normally wear a M/ 10-12 in tops & ordered a 12 in this top which is a little big. I read the previous reviews that said as such but past experience has taught me to order on the bigger end for D cup coverage. Shouldn't have worried though, the cups are plenty big enough to cover & not compress the chest in. I really like the wide bottom band, on the smallest setting it makes me feel more secure/supported without the need for an underwire. The halter straps are what prevent this from being 5 stars, at least on my petitie frame they're really long which means I either have to double-knot them behind my neck (uncomfortable) or have a good 4-5 inches dangle down my back. I could probably go down to 10 & it would fit even better then the slightly big 12 but I needed a new suit ASAP. The solid swim cami in turquoise looks great with this too.

Plenty of support withouth looking like a "support bra." I usually order a 12, sometimes a 10, but based on prior reviews got the 10 and it is perfect. I ordered the matching bikini bottoms and a more modest bottom in the deep sea. Though I liked the solid bottom better, matched the neck tie of the bikini, the matching bottoms fit better and are simply "more cute!"

I really like this suit. Great LE quality as usual. The fit seems average - I am 34D, 115 lbs., 5'2" and ordered a size 6. Great fit around the ribcage, but the cups are a little small for me...I could use a full figured suit from LE that isn't as conservative as their standard "full figured suits". All in all I like this suit and would buy another if it came in more patterns/colors.

Pretty top, looks fantastic, and I appreciated the previous reviewers' advice to order a size down: I'm 5'3'', 122, and a B cup, and was doubtful about the size 4, but it fits perfectly.

I am a 32 DD and this top fit. Good coverage and support. I'm just a bit concerned that over time the band will stretch out as I have it on the tightest setting..it is tough to find something that small in the chest with that large cup size. However, how long can you keep a bathing suit anyway. BTW i ordered a size 6.

Pretty good fit
This is the only place that sells a the swim top that is constructed like a bra. Wish more mfg. would fabricate swim tops that adjust and fit like bras.

Love it! Flattering and comfortable
After reading reviews and the size chart, I bought a size 6 top and the bottoms in size 6 and 8 because some mentioned that it ran large. However, I found the size 6 bottom a little too snug around the hips so I am keeping the size 8 bottom. The size 6 top worked great (I normally wear 36B bra). I am 5'10" and 154 lbs. I love the print and the fabric is nice and thick and the top lightly padded. I agree the clasp at the back can be a little hard to open and close, but hopefully this will get easier after a bit of use. Overall it one of the most flattering suits I've bought in a long time!

Fits big, bad clasp, weird cup placements
I liked the pattern, but the cut is too big. I ordered a size 2, and usually wear a 32 or 34 band, but it was too loose. Secondly, the clasp was too snug: the hook took too much trouble to fit in the hole. Not good quality control. Thirdly, the the placements of the boobs were too close together, which may not have been a problem if the band was fitted properly. Too, bad because I love the print. It was returned immediately.

The top is very cute, fits well and looks great. I like the fact that the wide band provides support and it's attractive and shows a little cleavage without being too revealing, since I'm very ample up top. The only things I didn't care for were the hook fastener, which feels flimsy and the fact that (and this is strange) the swimsuit absolutely REEKED when I took it out of the package. It had an overwhelming horrible chemical smell. I'm currently airing it out and hope that this is something that will go away after I finish airing it and wash it. Perhaps it's due to being packaged in a plastic shipping bag, but it was remarkably nasty.
Considering that I'm a difficult fit, 5'9 1/2 tall and slim but a 34DD, I was happy to not have any fit issues. I selected a size 8 and it fit great.

So glad I ordered this
I normally wear a 4 in LE tops but the 2 fit perfectly. The top is cute and everything stays in place. So glad to I ordered it. This will work well for an active mom.
