Last year I bought this bikini from Hoola (I chose the ruched bottoms). Shape wise it's perfect but the top is a teensy bit small now.
So, can anyone help me find something in a similar shape in a 30GG/12? This is going to sound very fussy but it must be a halter neck but the straps need to come from the side of the cups (like the Hoola one) and not the top.
Curvy kate have a whole bunch of halters. Normally they would be a disaster for you, and I tried one of their balconette ones and yup, wires round to the back! But...I wonder if it might be worth trying as I think the different strap position and the fact it's being pulled inwards by the halter might mean a halter isn't as wide? this is pretty
I quite like the Cleo Lucille moulded balconette and might order one to see what it's like on. It'll probably be a perfect fit!
Alas, the straps on the first Freya and the Curvy Kate ones are in the position I don't like, coming from the top of the cup. Ideally I want a bandeau strapless shape with halter straps (hard to please, me?) as they seem to suit my shape. I've quite a wide chest above my bust line and need the straps to sit right at the edge of my torso if that makes sense?
The Freya Showboat is pretty perfect but not sure on the colour. I can't wear orangey reds. I think I might order it in a 30G and see what it's like in the flesh.
