Trina Turk Bandeau Bikini Top
Great color, but disappointing
PROS: Vibrant chartreuse color, sophisticated-looking suit
CONS: Poor sewing in the top, bottoms too low-cut
This suit had great potential, but poor execution on the top. I ordered up a size as suggested, and the fit was fine. However, there is a piece of embedded fabric in the lining that is bunched up along the breast dart (visible on the model's suit if you zoom/mouse over her right breast). It was noticeable and drew my eye each time I tried it on.
I found the bottoms to be too low-cut for my comfort, and unlike another reviewer, I was not able to adjust the bottoms "up." The metallic tubes, while attractive, weighed too much to keep the suit in a "raised" position to provide a little more coverage on my lower abdomen.
I love Trina Turk designs and wanted to love this suit, but was disappointed and returned it.
I was looking for a bikini to wear for my anniversary trip with my husband. I loved the design of this suit but was skeptical about the color. When I received it in the mail and tried it on....I was in love with the color and how it fit! I'm 5'9", have really long legs and a short torso, 145 lbs, and muscular built. Their suggestion is right....order a size bigger than you would normally wear. I have a small bust #about a B cup# and I ordered a size 8 for the top and it fit perfect. For the bottom I ordered a size 10. I usually wear a size 6-8 in pants #I carry a little fat "love handles" and don't like them showing# and the size I ordered took care of that problem. You can pull the ruffle on the bottom up as high as you want or as low as you want. Just depends on how much coverage you want. I will definitley be using this bikini for the next few years. Great quality and fits perfect. And the color looks really good with a nice tan :)
I'm not one to write a review, but this bikini is amazing! It fits perfect and super flattering!
