This is my favorite bikini top ever! I actually bought it in the black and in the peacock/teal with the coral straps. It is very flattering and sexy, without me feeling like I'm exposing too much. I am a 34 year old mom to a toddler, whom I spend the entire time at the beach chasing, and I felt uncomfortable in my old triangle top bikinis because I felt like things weren't "secure." This top feels very secure and sturdy and covers the right amount while being sexy at the same time. Just to note, the fabric is really nice, but I did have a tailor add padded liners/cups and I think you really HAVE to do that with this top, especially in a color other than black. It was only $10 for each top so it was no big deal.

I was really excited about this bathing suit but there is no padding or support in it at all. I was expecting a lot more from an expensive bathing suit but this is definitely made for women with small chests.

Great suit! Bought the LG and D-cup (am a 34-DDD) and ended up keeping the D-cup and having the straps on the back tailored so it would be tighter and give more support. It's great!

Great top/runs small. I tried 2 sizes, both the Large and the D, and chose Large which had a better overall fit yet is still a bit snug. I was concerned the multi straps in the back might be too tight (accentuating the dreaded back fat) but they look fine. Pebble is a nice color, subdued but elegant. I bought this top to match the classic Estella bottoms.

After years of trying to find a perfect swimsuit and failing summer after summer, I have finally found it. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Monica Wise. I am in love with this bikini top. It is so extremely comfortable while being flattering and sexy. I never thought I'd find a bathing suit that had both those qualities. I'm 5'4, 115lbs, 34b and I bought a small (pebble color). I considered buying a medium as well to try both on, but decided to just go with the small first and then go a size up if needed. The small is a perfect fit for me. It covers and supports what it should and reveals just the right amount of cleavage. This bikini even has 'sensual' in the name and that's just what it is. It's simplistically alluring and classy. It's not trying to be sexy with overt lace, cutouts, and embellishments. I purchased matching bottoms elsewhere because Zappos doesn't carry the color in the style I wanted (Lydia), but I will be posting a review for the Estella bottom that includes more info on that.

Most comfortable bikini top I own!! The cut is extremely flattering and the perfect mix of sporty and sexy. I'm fairly petite (5'3 and 115 pounds) and tried on both the XS and S. I liked the extra coverage the Small gave me. Definitely a staple piece I will keep for years!

I am a 34C and I am very tall. I could not decide between a small and a medium from the reviews. I could have fit with a small, but I think my boobs would have been too smushed. The medium has plenty of snugness and I can create cleavage if I want. I know I will be wearing this top for a long time! I cannot wait. I might want to get more colors, but as people have mentioned, I am worried about how see through it will be in any color other than black.

I am a 36DD and ordered the D-Cup. Usually I only wear swim tops that have underwire for support, but this top is PERFECT. It's extremely flattering and keeps everything in the right place while you're swimming around; it's comfortable without being restrictive. It's also very flattering in the back-the small straps aren't too long for the D-cup, but they don't cut into my back either. I have it in black. Since it is very thin, I wear small bandaids over my body jewelry to keep them from showing through the top.

This is a great top. I can understand why some folks would want something more substantial, but this is exactly what I was looking for. The fit was great (I am a 32/34B and ordered the small) and I really appreciate the minimalist approach - mostly that it has no padding, wires or thick lining. Super comfortable and stayed in place!

I really wanted to like this top because I love the style, but it was not flattering at all! I'm a small 34B and this top flattened my chest so much that it looked like I had nothing at all. I'm sure this top would look awesome on a fuller breasted woman. And to confirm what other reviewers have said, the fabric is very thin.

I recently had a breast reduction and am a true (sized by Nordstrom) 32DD. I purchased all sizes of this top (sorry, Zappos) with the intent of keeping the best fit. I kept the Medium, as the D size and Large were too loose around the bottom. For my purposes (looking cute while also hiding my scars), this top is a awesome. It is unlined, but I personally think lined bathing suits look awkward on me anyway.

I love this top. I traveled all over Nicaragua with this as a great surf top, and sports bra when hiking. It is a great all-around-piece. I am ordering two more colors of this.

I am a 34C with broad shoulders so I ordered a medium and large to try on and the large was a perfect fit. But if you have smaller shoulders the medium fit in the chest. It has enough coverage to be comfortable but still not like a bra and it does not slip around at all.

This top is incredibly cute; however, after a day's wear at the beach I do have a few concerns. I have this strap back in white and it's a bit stained from my sunscreen. I was able to get it out with some dish soap and a run through the washing machine, but future buyers be warned. Also, because there's no padding, beware of cold water or windy beach days, because this suit pretty much puts your nips out of display. I definitely plan on buying another strapback in black so that I won't have to worry about these things in the future.

Love this top! I am 5'9" and a 34C and got a size SM and it's perfect. It provides lift without an underwire and it feels very secure on. It is lined but not padded at all so it's pretty thin, which is perfectly fine in the black which I got but I'm not sure if it would show through in lighter colors. L*Space is a great brand and the top is lined so I'm sure the other colors would be just fine. Definitely recommend!

Bought it for my daughter. She seems to like it but I thought for the money you didn't get much. There isn't any padding.

The mint color of this top is beautiful; I was immediately drawn to it. Sizing was fine; I am a 34C and ordered a small for a little extra push up. I was planning to pair with crisp white swim bottoms that I currently own. Unfortunately, I will be returning this top, because as many other reviewers noted, it is unlined and VERY thin. I typically wear swim tops that are lined, I thought I could try one without, but it is just way too thin for me.

Love this bathing suit top! The back is great and looks good on. I haven't used it yet so I hope it doesn't stretch out. It provides decent coverage (I am 36D - DD).

Great top -- very comfortable and secure! I am a 34C and got a size small. Be warned there is no padding or lining, so it is rather thin but still provides great support/lift. I got it in black, so I'm not sure if the other colors would be see-through or not. Overall, very happy with this purchase!

LOVE this top! Beware though, it is very thin (single layer) which is fine in black, but I'm not so sure about any other color. I am a 34D and got the large and it fits almost just like in the model's photo, but slightly less revealing. very comfortable, no risk of "falling out", and great material!

This top works for me. I surf with a rash guard and don't want the suit moving around. I would like it to have a little more coverage in the front but it's better than most suit. I'm a 32D.
