This Sea Side swimsuit top was my second choice. As I am a person with noticeably uneven breast size, it can be difficult to wear a swimsuit top that's not padded because most are one piece of material. (Makes it really damn obvious and it feels awkward to me.) My previous swimsuit top was from Torrid and it was woefully unhelpful in the breast department. :(
Sea Side won the proverbial coin toss after REBDOLLS got back with me about my first (REBDOLLS) choice. It should come as no surprise that I asked about padding in the first top; once that one was out of the picture, I chose Sea Side. I bought it in the Royal Blue, size Large, and it feels very comfortable! The "shrug" part has an elastic band so it sticks to the frame. I have yet to wear it to a pool --since I just received it today-- but I tried it on with my Target-purchased swimsuit bottoms and fell in love with it. I asked my partner if the ensemble is an acceptable match and I received an enthusiastic "I'm so lucky!" So, here's my quick shot with my arm holding up the phone! ^_^
