To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Runs small and fits super awkwardly. Rather than support, it cut into and flattened my boobs, and the straps aren't adjustable. The photos make it look as though the bikini is reversible, but in real life — and out of the water — the black panels majorly show through to the other side. I imagine when wet this show-through would be even more apparent. This thing is really hard to get on and off because it's a pull-on style. And being a pull-on means the elastic of the band will stretch out faster than the rest of the garment. The placement of the double back bands was deeply unflattering and the top one uncomfortably cut across my shoulder blades. I would have pulled it lower — but there's those un-adjustable straps to contend with!
If the fit of this thing were better, it might be worth it to cut the back bands to add a clasp — a relatively easy fix, but not something you should have to do for a bikini top that costs $50.
Top fit a little snug, I'm a 32C and purchased a Medium. The cut of the top looks like it does on the model from the front. From the top-view, it does press in a little bit, which could bother some people that its not "perfectly smooth" but not enough to bother me. High quality, athletic fit, and reverses nicely. I purchased the blue/black top.
I would give 5 stars had the cups been a little smoother.
I usually wear a large or x-large in rip curl bikini tops and own quite a few of them, but this one ran larger than normal. The x-large was much too big and the cut was a bit unflattering, in particular the seams down the center of the cups (there is also no lining just FYI). For this reason I returned it rather than exchange for a smaller size.
this suit is really cool but it was way to small. I am a size 32A and usually all bathing suits are too big for me but I got this in size extra small and it was way to small. Still a really cool suit so I would get it and size up
