Rated 1 out of 5 by from So not good So sorry I bought this. This top offers no support at all. Don't waste your money on this unless you're extremely small-chested.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the style & fit - awesome I purchased two of these tops when I first saw them & fell in love with them! It is a great style & fit - holds my DD's in place perfectly. I am a size 22 & want to hide all the extra bits around my waste, so this top is perfect. I wear it at the beach & around the pool & have no problems with feeling comfortable & confident in it. Unlike the other handkerchief tankini tops in colours, the black one has round links & slides at the back of the top which to not dig into your skin like the square links & slides (which I would also buy if they did not have have the square links).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great,sexy fit. I was afraid of buying a bathing suit online, but was so glad I did!! It fit amazing!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this top! Wish it came in a multitude of prints and colors....always with black, so we can wear it with skirts, shorts, bikinis, etc in black. I always prefer an underwire, but this suit/cut gives decent support. Love the cross-cross straps, but would really like to see a dip in the front - over the belly- rather than a rise. That's my problem area and would like more fabric covering this sensitive area

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Returned for exchange Nice top but not the right fit. The bust was too tight and the flyaway front did not provide enough coverage. Very cute top for the right body type. Size 18 is too tight for a 42dd.

I need to know the length from below the empire line under the bow, to the middle bottom...please.... it said side seam was 14 in but the middle front looks much shorter..true?
Barbara B on Aug 17, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi Barbara!

The length should be 14", however the sides are slightly longer due the style of this tankini top.
Is this black or navy blue?
A shopper on Apr 18, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It's black, but I will say that when I got in the water, the bottom floated up exposing what I was trying to cover. The top, however is very flattering.

A shopper on Apr 23, 2015
BEST ANSWER: yes, you can adjust them to fit like a bra strap

Please disregard the " Cup Size" on the sizing chart. ( It's generic to the universal sizing statistics.)

In case of an 18, the bust measurement is 44 inches.
