Floral bandeau bikini top
Glad they are finally makin' em!
I agree with both the reviews. I bought all three styles, this one, the black studded and black white plunge. The problem is definitely the hooks on all three. They are cheap and slick and slide right off. I am going to try the duct tape trick. The underwire on the black studded suit has already come through. True that this print is not the best, but it actually looks ok with a bright colored bottom. Underneath where underwire is-the suit rolls so that the backside lining curls up and shows. All three fit differently and I bought the same size for all-This one runs a little big and the other 2 styles run a little small. For the price I would have expected better-but I will buy every style they come out with! thank you!

Not As Bad As I thought
I bought this swim top and the black studded one. The hook is slick and made of metal and difficult to hook your top. It almost instantly popped off as soon as I moved. I was so disappointed as they fit great and look good and finding a bikini top in my size 40DD is almost impossible. HOWEVER, I figured out how to make them work. I wrapped a little piece of duct tape around the hook to give it some traction so it was not so slippery and voila, the top did not pop off. I swam in it. I barbequed in it. I wore it all day with no problems. I would have rated it higher, however for $50 you would think it was stay on or at least Lane Bryant did some field testing on it before selling them. But I am NOW happy with my purchase and will be keeping both tops.

Love style, hate print
Tried this on and loved the fit. Great support and coverage and can actually move in it unlike the plunge bikini tops. Just hated the print, so I didn't buy it. But keep making em and I'll definitely get one. Maybe try a solid red or black or a retro inspired checker print? It could benefit from some extra styling to make it look less like a bra though and more like a swimsuit (ruffles maybe?).
