I've never really liked bandeau tops on me, but I just needed to stop getting wacky tan lines. I saw this suit and thought I'd give it a try. I'm pretty narrow up top and wear a 32E or 30F in bras - for this I went with the 32E, which is my standard bra and swim size in Freya and Panache, my two favorite brands. With or without the ribbon halter tie at the neck, I felt the top was a bit too loose in the band, unfortunately, and I am going to have it taken in about two inches. It "fits" but it feels like it will fall down on me. The underwire and cup size, however, feels and fits fine. It would be awesome if Freya made their bands in suits adjustable. So, I'd say this was on the larger side for someone who falls between a 32 and 30 band size - that said, it's very cute, totally supportive, and well made, like all Freya products. I have the Cobalt polka dot top and the plain Cobalt bottoms, and I just love it!
