Women's SwimMates Colorblock Bandeau Bikini Top
Way too small.....and I even ordered up a size
My bra size is a 36D, but after reading the reviews, I decided to order up a size. I got the 36DDD/38DD. I was excited to see the band is adjustable, but I tried it long and short and in between, but I just didn't flatter me and I just couldn't breathe either!! I think the problem is in the cup size....they were too small causing the suit to squeeze my breasts together in an unflattering way. Also, I had to adjust the neck strap all the way out and it was still tight and uncomfortable almost choking me. The neck strap is removable and the clasp looks very sturdy so you don't have to worry about it popping off suddenly.
I agree with the \reviewer who said it felt like an ace bandage with armpit fat spillage (which I don't usually have). I gave it a "fair" because of the poor fit, adjust-ability, quality of the fabric and quality of the clasps.

Loved this top!
I love this top. The removable strap is great. When you are active you can wear it but you still have a lot of support when you are not using it. I have a small chest and the cut was very flattering. My only complaint is that my husband washed it with a red shirt and now the white trim is pink...

Sent it back.
Ridiculously under-sized. This product should be pulled and re-sized before becoming available for sale again. I am an active and fit woman (not overweight), and I bought a cup size larger, based on the reviews I read for the product. Not even close. Two thumbs way down. I am only rating this a one because the review will not accept a "0" value.

Love the colors
This top is super cute. I had read the other reviews before I ordered so I did take the advice and ordered a size up. I think the fit is partly due to the fact that it is a strapless top. The top does have a thin strap that can be worn around the neck but that isn't really going to help keep it up much so the top needs a to have a snug fit. I ordered just one size up and I am happy with the fit. I also got the matching tankini top and they look really nice together.

Way too small but nice colors
I am usually a 36C and to get the cups even close to fitting I had to go up to a 36DD. This is obviously not the same as bra sizing. I had to order this in 36D and 36DD just to try it on because the store did not carry anything larger than C-cup. Although I think this a problem with the store, it would have been helpful to at least get the sizing right in the store before I ordered the color I wanted. I bought the Burgundy/Strawberry top with the Burgundy Orchid Floral bottom and I absolutely love the color combination.

beautiful with the matching cover up
I bought this in the black/cream to go under the matching tankini style cover up top. It is sooo beautiful together. I am small up top (34A-34B) and I did buy the 34B, which is usually too big for me. So I agree with the other reviews that it is a small top (coverage wise) and does run small as well. The tankini cover up has NO lining or padding so you really have to have this to go under it. But the way this bikini top lies in the space under the cover up cami is so flattering and very unique. I bought these two tops to wear with the solid black flounce skirt. I wore them on a trip my husband and I took to Cancun and it was great because once I was seated by the pool I could take off the cami top and just wear this bikini top to get sun on my stomach... but when I needed to get up I quickly put the cami cover up back on top (only a bit awkward while sitting in a lounge chair:) to cover my tummy while I walked around. GREAT idea! Loved it!!

Bikini top too small
SO cute, but just not big enough. I ordered the 34DD/36D like my usual bra, and the cup depth just isn't big enough (the sides are). So, it puffs out underneath and doesn't lay against your breast bone at all. I can't think of what other size to order as as 36/38 would be too big around. Need a 34DDD, crazy.
