Without actual measurements provided, I was having a hard time determining sizes. I emailed asking about comparable brand sizes (being from the US, knowing I couldn’t return items affordably), but none could be provided. I provided my sizes, and some guesses were provided by staff, but they contrasted dramatically from some of the examples provided on their site. I took the risk anyway (erring on the side of too big, which could at least be tailored if needed).
For all other US clients…I am usually a M or L top (go to brands are body glove, pakaloha, target), and an 36C bra. I ordered a 12 because 10 was sold out. It fits well, though I think a 10 would also fit fine. I haven’t worn it in the water yet. (I’m also a M in Waterlust tops). I hopes this helps someone with law who was looking for relatable/comparable sizing like I was.
I love the pattern! Keep in mind, the top is fully reversible (flip side is the solid maroon color of the second strap), so you end up with two suits in one. Material is very comfortable, but no padding (if that’s important to you).
That’s it! I absolutely love it and wear the top to train as well.
This was my first (but will certainly not be my last) order from Sea Morgens and I am thrilled with my purchase (I got the matching Side Split Bikini Bottoms) -- among many reasons to rave: arrived quickly (12 days lapsed between the time I placed the order and when it arrived, which is pretty amazing for shipping from UK to the US!), packaged with care and a lovely handwritten note, soft, beautiful material that is made of recycled plastics !!, size chart was accurate -- the swimsuit is flattering on my athletic build. The only thing I'd change is to add a teeny bit of padding, both because I have a small chest and because I am self-conscious about nips poking through the fabric (although the pattern helps with the latter issue)
I can't rave enough about this top. Gorgeous quality material, such stunning colours, and the fit is true to size. I feel supported in all the right places 😄
