  • This style is a tankini top and does not include a bottom for a full set. Shop separate bottoms to make a set.
  • V-neck
  • Built-in, soft wire-free bra cups
  • Adjustable straps
  • Flowy, A-line silhouette offers relaxed shape
  • Side seam measures 14" from Underarm to Hem
  • Sizes 8-16 fit up to a C/D cup; sizes 18-34 fit up to a D/DD cup
  • Tankini swim top fits true to size
  • 82% Nylon / 18% Spandex
  • Hand wash.
  • Flat dry.
  • After every use, the garment must be hand washed. Harmful elements such as suntan lotions, salt, chlorine, and body perspiration can cause discoloration and spandex breakdown. Since laundry detergents are too harsh on the spandex and the color, use mild hand soap made without added moisturizers. Do not wring the swimsuit to remove excess water. Lay it flat on a towel and roll the towel up and squeeze gently. Remove it from the towel and lay it flat to dry. Do not hang it to dry as that will stretch out the fibers in the fabric. Avoid using washers and dryers as damage can occur due to agitation and excessive heat. It is also important to let your suit "rest" between uses. This allows the spandex to bounce back (called recovery) to its original size and maintain its fit longer. If you wear a suit without letting it recover, it will lose its shape and fit more quickly. It's recommended to let the suit rest for 24-36 hours between uses. Always remove excess moisture with a towel and lay flat to dry indoors or in the shade. Also note, direct sunlight will fade your suit. It is always a great idea to have more than one suit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the style & fit - awesome I purchased two of these tops when I first saw them & fell in love with them! It is a great style & fit - holds my DD's in place perfectly. I am a size 22 & want to hide all the extra bits around my waste, so this top is perfect. I wear it at the beach & around the pool & have no problems with feeling comfortable & confident in it. Unlike the other handkerchief tankini tops in colours, the black one has round links & slides at the back of the top which to not dig into your skin like the square links & slides (which I would also buy if they did not have have the square links).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great,sexy fit. I was afraid of buying a bathing suit online, but was so glad I did!! It fit amazing!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this top! Wish it came in a multitude of prints and colors....always with black, so we can wear it with skirts, shorts, bikinis, etc in black. I always prefer an underwire, but this suit/cut gives decent support. Love the cross-cross straps, but would really like to see a dip in the front - over the belly- rather than a rise. That's my problem area and would like more fabric covering this sensitive area

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Returned for exchange Nice top but not the right fit. The bust was too tight and the flyaway front did not provide enough coverage. Very cute top for the right body type. Size 18 is too tight for a 42dd.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and Beautiful Great Tankini top! I wish it was in lots of colors.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not what I expected. I was looking for something lose and relaxing. The breast cups was way to big, not adjustable at all like the description said. was a lose fit tho. The Handkerchief tails are not sown so probably would fray with wear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely! Just got it today in the mail. I am a 44DD (ordered an 18) and this top holds the girls in nicely without fear of popping out. This top hides all the problem spots, offers good support and hangs nicely. The back is a little long on me for some reason, but I am only 5'5 and not really a long torso. Haven't had it in the water yet but I could imagine it will float up. Still love the look and it makes me feel comfortable and sexy. Highly recommend to anyone especially if you're self conscious on the beach like I am.

In case of an 18, the bust measurement is 44 inches.
