Rated 4 out of 5 by from Order larger size I am 5'8" and 150 fit. My bra size is usually a 34-36 D and I bought a medium. Should have bought the Large. It fits but is uncomfortable to get on and if I have any changes in my cup size which happens with hormonal changes I'll be busting out of it. I wanted something modest, with good support and to cover a scar on my sternum. It does that but if you're thin and busty go up a size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from quite comfortable I got this a couple months back in prep for a thru hike of the SHT. I needed something that could double as a bra and come in handy for swim breaks if need be. It is so comfortable and quite supportive for a cupless style top. (I'm a 38DDD) and it's cute as heck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SO COMFORTABLE I bought this top in a medium. The colors are gorgeous. I wear a medium in all tops and this fits perfectly. Very comfortable and provides good coverage for being active.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PERFECT SWIM TOP I LOVE this swim top! I have been looking for one like it for years and am so pleased to have finally found it. The top provides great support and stays secure, so you don’t have to worry about it slipping or shifting around while swimming or during other activities. The design is gorgeous: it’s cute AND functional, sporty AND elegant. The curves around the shoulder and the triangle in the back are particularly graceful and flattering. I have kind of an androgynous vibe and don’t like drawing extra attention to my cleavage. I’m not a prude, I just want a swim top with good coverage that is also attractive, which is soooo hard to find. I’m so happy I found this top—it is perfect! I got the navy & white striped one, which looks great with the matching navy “Isla Boy” swim bottoms. I finally feel comfortable going to the beach. Thank you! For those wondering about fit: I’m slim, 5’6,” wear a 34D bra, and ordered a size small for a secure fit that is not too tight.

Could you give me an idea of sizing. I typically wear a 34 D bra. Should I order a med or large?

Hi, I wear a 34D bra and ordered a size small, which fits great for me. The fit is pleasantly secure but not too tight.

Does this swim top have removable pads or any type of padding to prevent nipples showing?

Asked by: DagneyTaggart
It does not -- which is why I didn't end up keeping it. It needs something. It's really cute but too thin.
