Women's AquaTerra Abstract Floral X-Back Tankini Top
I am a 16 petite with a 40C bra but after reading the reviews, bought a 16W thinking it would fit and lift the bust better. To my disappointment, the pads in the suit flattened my bust to create an odd shape. I will be returning the tankini.

This suit is so stylish!
I haven't gotten a new swim suit in about 8 years because I can't imagine what they would look like on me...and the ones that I have from before are all from Land's End and are holding up beautifully! But I wanted something different and this suit makes me look slimmer, fits my bust perfectly (you can order in your bra size) and the colors (turquoise and yellow) are great! So glad I took the plunge and ordered it!

Great fit and color
The color was true to what I saw on the website. The fit is very flattering as is the color.

Hard to find a nice tankini top in DD
I was so happy to be able to find something that had a DD size option, so hard to find!
I bought this on sale in 10DD. I wear a 34DD in bras and usually a medium in tops. I have no issues with the strap length or the overall length of the top. The fit is what I was expecting. I have not worn it in water yet but I feel like I will be locked and loaded fairly well. I can see how the scoop shape of the top can give a uni-boob look. If you buy it on the snug side for sure it will be a little less flattering than a V-neck top. The blue is very nice and I like the color blocking effect.

I got this during the sale in a 16W in black/blue combo. I have to say it fits fairly well, not too tight in the tummy, was just right, gave me a nice shape. I thought the cups would be a bit small for my 40B/C chest, it fit, albeit a bit snug, which I find better to hold the "girls" in. Have to say though it was quite a feat putting it on, esp adjusting the cups! And since the straps criss-cross, you have to be sure you don't get tangled up in the straps while pulling it on. Then after, you have to really pull this off, almost have to be some kind of escape artist to get out of it.
Now for my one gripe, where others complain of the straps being long, for me it's a bit tight and a tad short. It pulls me/digs in towards the shoulders, maybe my shoulders are just too wide. That's my only complaint really, it's not a deal breaker, it's bearable. I'm thinking when it gets wet it'll stretch a bit, or if I lose a bit more weight, well that should do it right? Anyway, it's a great top, I also bought the AquaTerra swim shorts to go with it and they both look great.

Love the Aqua Terra line!
This top is perfect. I am 5'2, 120 lbs and 34D. I ordered the size 6 in the D cup & it is perfect!. Not too tight in the waist area & enough coverage and support on top, even with the thin straps. Love the bright colors too. I ordered the sapphire w/pink. Bottoms ran small though (see separate review).

I ordered the regular fit, D cup. The length of the top is VERY long. It covers the entire rear and is down to the hips...you really can't see the bottoms. If I turn up the hem on the top I would need the hem width in the back and 2 inches in the front. But I think trying to turn it up will ruin the suit for I can't cut the hem to make a smooth hem after turned up.

perfect fit for me
Have not worn the tankini as yet, but great fit when I tried it on.

sporty, good coverage, true to size
I started out with a 14DD after reading reviews that it ran small. The cup size was good, but the rest of the tankini was way too long and wide. I returned for a 12 DD, my usual size ( I am 5'2" 155, athletic build with DD boobs). It fits quite well. i have sooo much trouble getting tankini tops that hold the girls up with out strangling ( halter style) or side straps that hurt my shoulders.....this does neither! the cross straps are thin, but made of a neoprene like material. Yes, one does get the uni-boob effect I read about, but at the same time you don't have a huge cleavage if you are large breasted. Fits well around the 56 yr old tummy and is still a bit too long and wide at the hips for me ( I am small hipped). Overall, I am very happy with it and can swim laps and look somewhat fashionable. I bought black "boy shorts" from another on line swim company and its cute together!

Looks good, fits well
This tankini top fits as described. Although I do wish it provided a little more chest support, it does fit well and the colors are bold and fun.
