I am in love with this swim suit and with Albion! I am pretty picky about swim suits and am hesitant to spend this kind of money on a swim suit, but I’m so happy I did. I love the fit and how comfortable it is. I’m curvy and most swim suits that fit well are very dowdy and use restrictive fabrics. I don’t usually buy bras that go over the head and so was hesitant to try this one, but it goes on easily. I did not have any of the problems the other reviews have mentioned. These swim suits are fashionable, comfortable, and make me feel beautiful. I’m so pleased with this purchase! I’m 5’4 140lbs and I purchased a medium and will definitely try other clothing.
COMFY AND CUTE
Sydney Game Changer Swim Crop
This top is so cute. I wanted to love it. Unfortunately it is just off as the other reviews relate. The band that goes across the back is very tight while the cross straps are loose ( I’ve had both the small and medium - same problem). In the front, the straps kind of bunch and look like they are wings.
I went back and forth with this swim top. I thought it was going to be the perfect top for me but… not quite. I love the higher neckline and cross cross back design with wide straps. The combination of those two things made it worth it for me to keep. It’s fairly modest, still cute and COMFORTABLE.
Now for the disappointments:
Definitely NOT supportive enough for high impact water activities or to double as a sports bra. That being said, I am 5’11 with a long torso so I had to size up to feel like the crop was long enough for me, which then did not give me as tight of a fit. However, I started with the smaller size that was recommended for me and I still did not think it felt supportive enough for activities.
I also found the padding to be insufficient if you ever get cold in the water. The padding is small in size and thin. It is removable, so I swapped it out with some more substantial removable padding that I had in sports bra.
Overall, I did keep this top mainly for the comfort factor as a swim/lounge top.
This is my favorite swim top by far. The fit is comfortable and the look is very flattering. Everytime I wear an Albion swimsuit I am asked where it's from. Would recommend 100%
Obsessed with the detail in the back and the color.
