Women's SwimMates Stripe Halter Bikini Top
Love the bright colors! Please bring them back...for the skirts, too.
I initially didn't like the stripes when Swimmates premiered last summer, but I took a chance when they went on sale this year. Wow...I am so glad that I did. It was my last chance to snatch up that awesome Tropical Turquoise color (I bought the solid in the sweetheart style last year as well as the cami's.)
At any rate, I was pleasantly surprised to see that this bikini does fit...since some previous reviewers discouraged "busty girls" from trying this style. Hoorah!
Wish the Swimmates this year offered brighter colors for the skirts...I waited too long to order last year, and they were gone!

Adorable and Modern
I can't wait to wear this striped halter top (with coordinating polka dotted bottoms) on vacation this winter. The cut, color (orange), and pattern combo are right on trend! Though I haven't tested it in the water yet, the suit seems very well made. The molding in the cups is sew in securely, and the adjustable back closure allows for a perfect fit without the bulk of a knot. Best of all, the price was great--I came in well under budget with this purchase!
Only con is that the suit runs large. At 5'7" and 125 lbs, I'm usually a 34B and a 4 in bottoms. I went with the 30/32B top and a 2 bottom and the suit fits wonderfully!

Love this bikini top
I love this bikini top. It is a great orange color if you have a summer tan. And the top is great with a little bit of padding so you don't poke through (very flattering for even small busted women). And I love that it is adjustable but it doesn't tie in the back (that way there's no bulk under your cover up). Definitely love it.

I am 5'1" and small busted. I ordered this bikini top and although the fit was okay, (I am a 36A) I found there was just too much coverage... The top seemed to overwhelm me. Even my conserative husband thought that it was "too much". This top left very little skin space for tanning. LE - please make a bikini top that is supportive and slightly padded, but proportional for petite size women. I felt that I was wearing a tube top. Perhaps next year's styles will have something for me.

Cute and fun!
I love this top! It is flattering and comfortable (mine will always have the cami top over it), but if I was brave enough to still wear a bikini - I'd be thrilled with the way that this one fits! Cute and feminine - a great deal.

It fits very comforable and the color is just what I was looking for.
The quality is good and fit tremendous. Looks flattering.

Nice top for the price
I like this top. Ordered it in the navy blue stripe to go with the midrise bottoms. It looks great out of the water - average coverage and very comfortable. Had a slight problem in a wave pool though - the top didn't "hold things in" they way it should! It is fine for calm swimming or lazy lounging around the pool or beach. I normally wear a 34B bra and ordered the 34B/36A top.

I like this top - and it works well with the cami. It fits true to size.

Followed the advice of other reviewers and ordered one size smaller than normal, and it worked! Very comfy and stylish. Recommend

very flattering, but white stripes don't stay bright
I bought this top because it is very flattering to my small bust. It lifts and supports, and the band is fully adjustable so it fits just right. I usually wear a 34B in bra sizes, but got the 30B/32A in this top. The material is nice and comfortable. I've worn it a couple times and always get compliments on it. The two things that have disappointed me are that the white stripes (in my navy and white striped top) have already gotten dingy, after only wearing it twice! I also wish that the neck strap was adjustable like the band, as I worry that it will stretch out and no longer provide the lift that I love so much.
