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.

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.

I am so happy with this top! I like that the chest lines are different than my other suits (to help with tan lines), but also got a lot of compliments on the cut and the back when I wore it this past weekend. It was exactly what I wanted. I'm 36c and got a large as I was nervous about it being too tight without the ability to adjust the back and the L fits great!

Love this top. I wear a 36D and ordered the 'D Cup' size. Just the right amount of support, super comfortable, and cute! I wish it came in more colors.

I was really disappointed with this L*space top. I have purchased other tops from this brand in the past and was very happy, however previous tops had light padding for extra comfort/support. This top was described as having 'lightly lined cups' - which in my opinion is inaccurate. Lightly lined cups implies there is some sort of padding to prevent nipple exposure, this is not the case, there is zero padding or support. I am a 34B bra size and this top fit more like a sports bra and is not flattering at all.

I'm a 32D, and the M was a surprisingly great fit even though the band wasn't adjustable. It wasn't particularly flattering, though; I felt the ties around the neck needed to be too tight to be supporting and that part was uncomfortable. In the end, I returned it and found another cute black top that had straps that crossed in the back.

I've only tried it on, but really like it! I wear a 36c after getting implants and it's been a struggle to find a good swim top! The looks good and I don't think I'll have any problems popping out of it!

I have a nine month old and am still nursing. It is hard to find a top that is not old looking with enough support. This top is perfect! It is very comfortable and feels tight while also giving me a lift. I am not a fan of padding so that was not a big deal to me. You could get cups put in, but with the pebble color I did not feel too exposed. I am currently wearing a 34DD and at first got the D size, but felt that it was not tight enough around the bottom. I decided to go with the large and it was more snug. It is a great sporty top, even for larger busts!

For the price, there really isn't much to this top. It's okay, and I wear it occasionally, but unless I tie the neck strap super tight, I don't feel like my breasts are well strapped in. I'm only a 32B, so it's not like I have a large chest. Also, as other people have commented, there is no padding at all, so your nips will be on display.

LOVE this top-the color is great, the fabric is the most desirable-does fit small. I should have got the large (my tiny C cups are prone to nip-slips in this top)!

One of the best tops I have! Fits well and very comfortable. If you are busty, you may want to go up a size though. I am not, and it fits great.

I can't figure out why exactly but this is the most perfect top. If you have a small bust - especially - it's very sexy and looks great!

Obsessed with L*Space! Have this top in two colors. Great balance of style and comfort. Wears like a sports bra, but more flattering for your cleavage. I would have one in every color of I could afford it. Wish they made a strapless version!

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!

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 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.
