Pintuck balconette bikini top
I decided to finally get over my fear of being too big for a two piece and decided to venture back in to it after 10 years of tankinis and then just wearing tank tops and shorts. I ordered two sets and when I put this set on (in my favorite color of blue) my husband did not want me to take it off. It really did bring out the best features of my body. The main reason I love this top is because you can wrap around the straps and then thread it through the loops lower down and it takes a lot of pressure of your neck. I ordered the 40DDD and it was a perfect fit. I run in the 18 size range. For my first two piece venturing back into the bathing suit world was perfect and makes me confident to purchase another one.

Bummed by lack of sizes
This is very cute, but as other reviewers have noted, the small range of sizes means mine will have to go back - wish there was a 40C as it would be a keeper! Not all of us with bigger bottoms have big tops to go with :( the search for a matching set that actually fits continues for another day.

Pretty but fits loose
I normally wear a 42D Cacique bra and don't fill out the cups completely at the top of the cup. This swim top, in a 42D fits loose in the band and loose in the cups (looser than an normal Cacique bra). A 42C would have probably fit better. That being said, the slightly larger cups provide ample coverage without looking like I don't have enough to fill them. Depending on how I tighten up the straps, the cups work fine.
I wish the band would have more width or structure. It tends to roll/get out of shape. Also, I would have preferred a hook and loop closure like a regular bra/other Cacique swimsuits but I bought this to wear under a rash guard so it should work fine.
The color of this top is beautiful and the pintuck design makes it visually appealing. Glad to have a swim "bra" that I can wear under a rash guard, without the extra fabric around my middle.

Spectacular Color, Fit and Style
I'm so glad they had my size! The sizes are true to the LB balconette bras. The support is excellent The color is amazing. I don't like the matching bottoms that much though. They have too much coverage and look like old lady bloomers. The back of the briefs comes up almost as high as the lower strap of the bikini top.
