Admittedly, while the silhouette of your favorite halter top is the bee's knees, you could really do without the consistent bruising and neck strain. Introducing: the Carve Designs Women's Cascade Bikini Top. Crafted with a triangle-meets-halter body, this bikini top offers over-the-shoulder comfort without the schleppy look. Not to mention, the back closure, removable pads, and adjustable straps seal the deal in terms of the Cascade's covert practicality.

This is basically everything I like in a bathing suit top. I have the pinkish pattern, and it's so cute! Embarrassingly, I feel like I have enough bathing suits to wear a different one every day this summer (an exaggeration, but you get the point) and this one has quickly become one of my favorites for the following reasons:
1. I'm pretty obsessed with the pattern. It's bright and summery. It's unique! I love how they mixed multiple fabrics to create a really special piece that feels like a one of a kind.
2. I'm blonde and super fair, but I get pretty tan during the summer, and I anticipate that this color will look good when I'm pale and tan. So I feel like it would look good on a variety of people with a variety of skin tones.
3. It's SO hard to find an athletic swimsuit that looks cute and is still functional. This one meets both requirements! I have about a b size cup, so I can't speak for someone who has larger boobs and more need for support, but this suit holds me in! I'm not a competitive triathlete or swimmer, but I tend to be on the active side when I'm at the beach so I need a bit more support than a typical triangle bikini can offer. However, I'm not willing to 100% sacrifice the aesthetics of a bathing suit for the function. I feel like most suits are either very athletic and not cute or very cute and somewhat useless in terms of performance. I was stoked to discover that this one finally found the happy medium!
4. The fabric feels high quality, and as a person who usually uses my clothing and gear to it's fullest potential, I appreciate that. This seems like it's built to last!
Just a couple other notes:
-I have a size medium that has a nice, comfortable fit. I'd say that this product seems to run true to size. However, I feel like if I had a size small it might be a bit more supportive.
-I really think that the colors/patterns of this suit look way richer and prettier in person than they do in pictures.
Anyhow, love this suit and I get tons of compliments on it! I'd definitely purchase another one from Carve!
