I wear this suit for 1-2 mile swims several times each week. The bra is great and the fit is perfect. It is the only suit I can find with an appropriate bra for active swimming. The fabric has held up well although it is faded from the pool water. Susan from Columbus Ohio

While this is very comfortable for casual swimming, if you're into athletic, competitive, or speed swimming, be aware that it flops about a bit. The support in the bust is not what it could be, and the breasts are allowed more movement rather than being pulled close to the body. The craftsmanship and materials are lovely. It's just too big, and I've no idea what size would work for me. It's been worn, so I can't return it. So if you choose this top, make sure you read the reviews (like you are now) and request fitting advice.

Freya Response: It sounds very much as if you need a smaller band size for that firm body hug you’re looking for. If the cup fits you, and the “body” of the suit is too big, just go down a band size (34D4). If you feel the cup and body of the suit are both too big, go down a cup and band size (34D3).

I'm very pleased with the top. It fits perfectly, looks nice and it's great for swimming. It is very hard to find an active swimwear if you have large breasts. Most DD+ sized swimwear is suitable for sitting on the beach only or for women with implants defying gravity. With this top, you don't have to worry about coming out of rough ocean water with on nipple peaking out. The shipping was free and fast and I'm very happy to find HerRoom. Zofia from NJ

Although I've yet to wear this swimming or to the beach, I love the fit. Dian from New York, NY

Fits like a good bra and has great coverage during water sports. This is the best suit for G cups. Dee from Cutchogue, NY, USA

I had recently been properly fitted for bras, due to my back being in pain from the weight of my chest (my bras were clearly not doing their job). I was wearing a 36DD, but to my surprise, I am actually a 34G! Who knew someone could be wearing the wrong size for so long?! So of course, with knowledge of my new size, I was worried about how swimsuits were going to work for me. Popular stores that are easily accessible don't carry 34G swimsuit tops, so here I was trying to find things online... I was looking for a top that would function as a water sports top (wake boarding, inter tubing, etc.). Thank goodness I came across this swimsuit! I feel that it is very age appropriate, as it looks youthful and sporty... But still provides the coverage I need. The only negative thing that I have to comment on is yes, like a lot of the other reviews, it does kind of pucker along the seam line where your nipples would be... So it does give a weird "nippage" look at certain angles. I figured I could overcome that small challenge with some light pads for inserts (sew them in the under mesh where your chest sits into, so you can't see the new sewn in details ;). I also see where other reviewers claim to have "cone boobs," but I honestly think they should go down a size or two to help their chest fit in it tightly. I bought a 34F in this top (I'm normally a 34G), and it fits snug like a sports bra. Love it, can't wait to wear it, and I hope this review encourages other sporty, youthful women who aren't ready for the skirted one-pieces to at least try this on! Sarah from Washington

Purchased this top with the shorts and its very cute. True to size. I only wish it had underwire.

Freya Response: We so appreciate your feed-back, and we’ll certainly pass on your suggestion to our designers. Thank you for helping us to be the best we can be! Ahsep from Chicago, IL

Very pleased with this swim suit (I purchased the boyshorts with this tankini top). Great fit and coverage. I only wish it had underwire for extra support. Amanda from Chicago

Bra component of this Tankini top runs very small, cup wise, even with the stretch. Sad because otherwise top and bottom were perfect for me. My band size is 36 and bust 43.

Freya Response: You might try a 36FF (D5) or G (D6) depending on how small the cup was in the F. Juanita

Excellent fit, good support; I wear a 38DD in the Freya sport bra, but 36E in Freya regular bra. The 36E in this suit top fit very well. I was worried that the support level would not be enough, but it was good. There is only one setting on strap, so the fit is very important. I am tall (5'11'') and the length of the top was very good for me. wlw from washington dc

This is a comfortable bathing suit top with a lot of security. I felt it was true to size. Will definitely order Freya suits in the future. Thanks! Kim from Smithsburg/MD/USA

I can't even express how happy I am about this swim tankini!! I am fit, 140 lbs, size 8/10 but have large breasts. I am taking a cruise with all my family, 11 of us, and want to look athletic and do not want clevage or be worried about having a wardrobe malfunction. This top is fabulous. I am a 36E and I look great in this top. It keeps me firm, love the back strap, fits like a bra!!! I am going to buy another one. We live on a lake and I wear suits a lot with the grandchildren. I feel confident and pretty in this suit, which has not happened in a long time. My husband loves it and is happy for me. My thanks to Freya for making this in the larger bra sizes, please keep these sizes!! Nancy from Michigan

Th site said to buy the same size as the bra. It was too big. I had the bathing suit taken in so that it is a 30 instead of a a 32. Julie from Los Angeles
