Women's SwimMates Orchid Floral Surplice Bikini Top
I LOVE how this bikini top looks. I am small on top and this bikini top is super flattering. Also love the print. I would buy more of this style if more prints were available. It does have a floating bra, which I think adds to the comfort. However I think the color of the bra could be dyed to match the color of the rest of the bikini to hide it better. Also love all the adjustable straps and band, which contribute to making this a very comfortable fitting bikini top.

This is a nice bikini top
this top supports and seems very comfortable.Im a 38 DD and it supports and is moderate in coverage.I would definetly recommend this top for large busted women. I have not swam in it yet but will get back to you after Ido.

Very comfortable fit.
This is a very becoming top. The fit was becoming to a smaller chest and also it was very comfortable.

Great Bikini Top
I love this top. It fits beautifully. I love that it has totally adjustable straps and the material is really soft. it fits true to your bra size so order exactly what size bra you wear.
The reviews are right about how the bra floats a bit, meaning the material over the top is not quite tacked onto it properly but seriously it fits so good and looks so nice I am just going to tack it down in the middle with a bit of thread and I am SET! I think you should get this top, esp if you are a bit bigger its really pretty and comfy.

Two layer construction is odd
I like the way this top looks (I have the 38B/36C), but it has two layers to it... There's a whole underwire bra underneath the first layer. It would be fine construction/support wise, but it shows if the first layer of fabric isn't draped across the cups the right way. I wouldn't mind it so much if it was a black layer, but the underwire bra is white. Seems well made and I look forward to seeing how well it lasts through the season.

Love It - Except for the Floating Bra
The quality is great, love the print, and it fits true to bra size. I am about to head out on a cruise and try this out for the first time and took a tip from another reviewer to tack the floating bra to the outside fabric so it doesn't show. I will add to this review after I return and let you know how my simple alteration worked !
I would have rated this top excellent except that the floating bra is a good idea, in theory, but isn't likely to work very well.
I bought this top with the mid-rise swimsuit bottom (navy blue), the swim mates halter top coverup swim cami (blue with white polka dots), and the swim mates cover up swim skirt (navy bllue), and the blue and white swim tee coverup that I'll use when snorkeling.

I like this top. I didn't really love the print but liked the style so I went ahead and bought it. I'm glad I did. It fits well and covers nicely. I want a suit that I feel comfortable in while running around the pool with the kids, and this is it.

Was true to size
I thought this fit well. Just didn't like the print. It's not as subdued as it is online. Also just felt the narrow straps didn't look as good on me.

Needs a little adjustment.....
I love this top!!! I hand sewed the floating bra to the top along the top edge and where it crosses at the center....it prevented it from gapping. If you don't sew, it's just a very small seamstress adjustment.

Good swimsuit, even for swimming and exercise
Really like the swim suit. The fact that it is fully adjustable helps create the right fit. Found that on the top, the under bra would often show at the cleavage region and I was not able to adjust the top layer correctly enough to avoid it. However...a very comfortable top.
Bottoms were great and provided just the right amount of coverage.
