After reading some of the reviews I was surprised at how well this fit me! I had no weird bulge at the stomach, and the straps were not a problem. I have a long torso and this was not too short on me as another reviewer described (most tops are). I used to wear bikinis all the time and like another reviewer...not at my age anymore - this was a great choice! I am 5’ 8” and 128lbs if that helps. A little spendy for the end of the summer season, but keeping it anyway.
If you need/want support then yes, you absolutely need this top! If you like to hide your tummy, then yes, you need to get this Tankini top! If you want to feel/look sexy even though you're not 29 anymore and do not do bikinis, :) then yes, you need to get this top! I love the support and at first I was concerned about the tie back but it really holds! I have bras that are not as good as this top! I only wish they were available in different colors! I had a Victoria Secret Tankini from 2010-2015 (may it rest in peace)(LOL) and this one is just as good if not better! Totally recommend!! Even if you are just going to walk the boardwalk with a pair of shorts or a cute skirt this is the top that you should wear! Just please don't forget the sunblock! (cancer survivor)
Didn't fit well and bulged weirdly at the stomach. It was also difficult to put on, because the straps over the shoulders are also the ones that go around your back. I don't think it is worth the money.
