Plaid swim tank with built in balconette bra
This has some issues but good overall
Hook in the back doesn't stay even. It slips one way and almost unhooks very easily. Like after I move at all. I have to have a bathing suit for my mexico vacation so I can't return it :( I just know my friend is gonna constantly be fixing it for me in the back.. I do love the fact that you can cross the straps or make it halter. I love the built in bra!!! First bathing suit I've ever had where I will feel confident and pretty. Also keyhole is not what it looks like in the picture at all but I got it from a store so I wasn't expecting a large keyhole.

I ordered two seperate style tops, this and the plunge. Really liked the plunge. However, this offered NO support (44DDD) and was HUGE in the cup size. Tried the straps in all 3 positions, no good. Going back this week for another style.

Runs WAY big!
I ordered my usual size and it ended up being huge!! Not supportive. I do like that it crosses over in the back though.

Great Idea, Bad Execution
Let's see, where to start.... The picture is sort of an artist's rendering of what this top actually looks like. The keyhole in the back is much smaller than pictured. (Go look at the Retro Dot Balconette Swim Tank to see the actual cut.) Then there's the color. The plaid design is the same and it is pink. It is not just pink. The pink is SUPER BRIGHT NEON PINK. If you are a fan of neon then this top is right up your alley. Additionally, it seems to run a little large. (I would order down a band size.)
I love the idea of this suit. I like the option to have halter, cross or bra type straps. Most of LB bra suits are bra strap only - BOring! If this came in SOLID black, it would be perfect. I would buy it early and often. Sadly, I'm returning it.
