The fabric is so slippery soft that swimming in these is going to be like wearing nothing. Add to that the mixed media print and 19" outseam and these shorts are close to be perfect. Bought the black. They are true to size.
Seems like a unique yet somewhat sporty top, right? Yeah, it looks that way. In real life, it has metal hooks in the back just like your bra (WTF? this isn't underwear!), isn't lined at all, and provides mediocre coverage. I felt like I was wearing a casual bra and not something I could actually scuba dive or be active wearing. And those hooks! Maybe if it weren't for the bra closure I'd think more highly of it but that ruined the top for sure.
I thought these were a little kitschy and would be cute on my husband who is 6'1" and 138 lbs. We ordered the 30 in gray. They are true to size. However, they looked ridiculous. They fabric is nice and soft but the print felt too contrived. Blech.
I can't say anything awful about this top it's just nothing special. I thought the design was interesting (the back strap configuration and the extra band of fabric in the front) but, in reality, it's pretty much just another solid black top. Runs a little tight. I'm 29" under bust and 32.5" at fullest and the SM was hair uncomfortable. If I were to order again, which I won't, I'd get a MD.
I wanted an interesting top with a splash of color to mix with different black bikini bottoms but it had to be substantial enough for active use (SCUBA diving, snorkeling, surfing, etc.) This top is perfection and it's true to size. Shocking, I know. I'm 29" under bust and 32.5" at fullest and the SM fits like a dream. It even has removable liners which, I think, are a necessity in swimwear. Love, love, love.
I wear a street size 8 in pumps/flats and 8.5 in boots/sneaks. Tried these on in an 8 and my toes went tingly and numb after 5 minutes. But they had the perfect flexibility, cushioning, heel grip, and the Therm-ic heat element so I bought them in an 8.5 thinking they were just a wee too small. They arrived 2 days ago and I've tested them out around the house 4 times now and each and every time my toes start to tingle and go numb after about 10 minutes of walking around. I've tried loosening the liner ties, loosening the outer ties...nothing. The are SO perfect everywhere and then, slowly, subtly, my toes tingle and that's that.
A real shame because they have great heel grip and padding. There must be too much pressure somewhere that just cuts off my circulation or puts pressure on some nerves.
