Okay Ladies, Bikini season is right around the corner and I practically live in a swimsuit and cover up during the Summer so I'm always on the hunt for that perfect suit. I prefer a strapless top or bandeau so I don't have any tan lines but I always struggle finding one that stays put while giving you some lift so it still looks as flattering as a halter top. I always love the Victoria's Secret catalog suits but never order any with the fear of them not fitting and needing different sizes and having to send them back, etc, etc..I hate that! So…Lucky for us, Victoria's Secret now carries a small selection of swimwear in the store! I went and tried on several of the different Bandeau tops and wanted to give you my review on each before you order (I would suggest ordering because the colors and sizes really are so limited in the store):
The Madi Push-Up Bandeau Top was by far my favorite! It runs true to bra size and is so comfortable and has some serious stay put power! It comes in a huge selection of colors ( I ordered got a mint:) and is reasonably priced at $30 and under.
The Rio Push-Up Twist Bandeau was a great fit but a little more expensive and fancy for the beach. I am really hard on my swimsuits between sunscreen and saltwater so they don't last long! But, if you are going on a vacation and will be laying by the pool or will be mostly on a boat, this would be a great suit for you. The top has some great push up and the bottoms are really adorable with the gold rings. I love it in the Shimmer Banana and White colors.
The Belle Bandeau Top was adorable and is your most reasonably priced option at $26 and under. However, it has no push up! This one is best for you smaller chested gals that don't desire some lift like myself. It's still a great fit but is lightly padded just fyi.
Who's Ready for a Tan-line Free Summer?
