This top was as beautiful as the picture! It fit, but I was thankful for the ruffle because it was cut a bit small. I needed the ruffle for an extra bit of modesty on the side.
Bronte Wave Crop
I absolutely love it! Never once did i fidgit with this bathing suit!
I am in love with this swim top. After college graduation, I was up 20lbs and not feeling confident in a bathing suit at all! But this top, paired with the high-waisted ruched bottoms is so adorable and made me feel extremely comfortable being on the beach! The pattern color is a little dull, but the versatility of the sleeves is what I like about it. You can leave the sleeves off your shoulders, but I ended up just putting mine on my shoulders - it held up really well for swimming in the ocean and in the pool. I ordered the large (my bust is 36D) and I felt very secure in this top!
I purchased a few different tops and bottoms to try and mix and match to come up with 2 bathing suits for my trip to Bora Bora this weekend. I wanted it to look tropical and to be as flattering as possible. I first went to Bora Bora my honeymoon 10 years ago and was in great shape and so thin. 6 kids later I'm the biggest I've ever been and my self confidence, especially when trying on bathing suits is really low. I have to say I feel good in this top. The cut is flattering, holds my boobs (size 36 C) and is very versatile. You can wear it off the shoulders, one shoulder up, or the ruffle can simply go under both arms so that they do not lay on your arms at all which will be great for tanning without lines from straps. I ended up liking the top so much that I bought it in the candy stripe color too. I wish the print was a little brighter as the flowers are a bit dull. The only downside is that the removable pads in the bathing suit get moved around very easily. I have to keep rearranging them every time I tried the suit on which is kind of a pain but I love everything else about it and I feel good in it.
