Britt Halter Swim Dress
Bra-sized, one-piece swimsuit with self-tie halter
U.K. sizing. See size chart for U.S. conversion.
Built-in, molded double-layer underwire cups
17'' long dress-inspired overlay on front panel
3 column, 2 row hook and eye back closure
Would be better with molded cups
This suit is so cute but unfortunately didn't work for me. I normally wear a US 36DD top (XL 12-14 bottom) and that's what I ordered. Caveat: I am post bilateral mastectomy/rebuild so my breasts require the right structured top to shape up and look natural.
Pros - Plenty of length in the torso and good, non binding full coverage on the bottom. The front panel seaming diverts the eye to give the appearance of a waist if you're a bit rounded through the middle or don't have a well defined waist. The fabric is nice. The side to side width of the underwire cups feels true to size.
Cons: It's a bit of a challenge to get the lingerie style hook and eye bra top closed by yourself as it requires reaching behind after you've got the suit pulled up. The top to bottom depth of the cup is narrow and I couldn't get the girls situated in there where the underwire sat correctly under them and provided support. The top cut unattractively across my breasts and kind of smushed them. I think a deeper, molded cup would have made a huge difference. *I tried a larger cup size (36E) and that didn't work either.
I'm returning the suits and I'm sad about it.
