Well I did it. I finally found a swimsuit for this season and it's a bikini. My daughter talked me into it and I must say I do like it. I spent my high school years living on the beach in a string bikini. Spent my 20's in Miami in a bikini. Had a baby, moved to Tennessee and never even bothered to try a bikini again. So....
Fantasie Bali Full Cup Swimwear size 38D, L in Marine here
On the Bed:
Yep there is it. Kind of scary looking. My faithful ol flip flops soften the blow a bit.
I sized up from my true 36D to a 38D based on reviews and it fits great. I ordered a L for the bottoms. Probably could have gotten away with the M but the L works fine. I just have to be careful when I dive into the pool that they don't end up around my ankles.
Back clasp. It is not adjustable but it is sturdy. The material is not the usual silky swim suit stuff. It is a tad rough but comfortable. The top has a black lining but no inserts. If the girls get cold will probably be able to tell ever so slightly.
The shoulder straps are adjustable. It is a swim bra basically...which is what I was going for. I am just tired of the saggy girls and the halter style needed to help keep them up.
The top actually deemphasizes the chest a bit. Not a lot of cleavage.
Geez I need a tan. The bottoms are full coverage and just high enough to cover the little muffin I have. I will probably be a little self conscience the first few times I wear this...even in front of the family. But hey, I got what I got and I am happy for it!
