Lovely if you have very small boobs!

LardLizard Wed 21-Jun-17 10:36:47

I don't know if I like it, or if I just think the model is hot lol

BagelDog Wed 21-Jun-17 10:42:20

Love the pattern but hate the weird sleeve bits and think they would look even worse if it actually got wet...!

JohnCheese Wed 21-Jun-17 10:45:28

Pretty colours but feck all support. If you're a teeny-boobed woman, then maybe.
But personally, those arm bits would drive me crazy

glitterglitters Wed 21-Jun-17 10:46:56

Seafolly are very good quality but I'd be a) irritated by the straps. I think I'd spend all day hitching them and b) concerned I'd get a bizarre tan line.

I do like it though but it just doesn't seem overally practical

VerityHabitat Wed 21-Jun-17 10:48:03

I think you'd spend the whole day hoiking it up, boobs or no boobs.

And one healthy wave comes in and you would be wearing an nice belt and no top.

But it is cute.

It would look lovely on my slim teenage DD, but it's £62! Just for the top!

LardLizard Wed 21-Jun-17 10:51:28

Yeah I do like seafolly as they last well

I was thinking perhaps when laying slides in the beach could take down the side strap bits
As get what you mean about bizarre tan lines

Thjnk I'd have to try it on

MorrisZapp Wed 21-Jun-17 10:55:24

Pretty, but aimed at the teeny tit crowd. Those brands are only worth lashing out on if you need custom sizing imo. If I resembled that model I'd be down at primark scooping up armfuls of delightful nothings.

SealSong Wed 21-Jun-17 10:57:19

The arm bits are odd. Would leave strange tan marks, and what would happen to the bra part if you raised your arms? Have visions of it all shooting upwards and leaving boobs exposed!

LardLizard Wed 21-Jun-17 10:58:45

Yeah I don't mind paying out, a do have a couple of seafolly swimsuits
Not really custom sized just size 10
But they do last so well

TooExtraImmatureCheddar Wed 21-Jun-17 11:09:35

Yuck. How would you swim in that? It would end up around your neck as soon as you started moving your arms.

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Wed 21-Jun-17 11:13:39

Oh good Lord,the fact you have to ask should tell you everything!grin

UndersecretaryofWhimsy Wed 21-Jun-17 11:26:25

I have no time for bikinis which are basically posing accessories and could barely stand up to a walk into the pool, much less a dive. And as far as I can see, you need to be so flatchested that you don't mind getting 0 support, but said flatchestedness will also mean there is nothing to hold the top up the minute you take a stroke. Plus you'd have to hold your arms terribly awkwardly to keep the 'straps' in the right place. Sorry.

LardLizard Wed 21-Jun-17 15:46:11

Well I'm going to try it anyway !

eurochick Wed 21-Jun-17 15:53:12

Zero support, likely to come off if you try to swim in it, silly tan marks on your arms. I'm not a fan.

LorLorr2 Wed 21-Jun-17 15:57:55

Holy moly at the price!

You probably wouldn't know anyone with the same one though, and it looks very holiday-suitable 😀
Just not sure if the straps would be annoying to wear.

ThreeForAPound Wed 21-Jun-17 16:16:36

Honestly? Its horrendously garish.

Doobigetta Wed 21-Jun-17 17:05:07

There's no way that top could stay on if you actually tried to swim in it. Also, I avoid red and pink in bikinis because they emphasise any slightly overcooked skin- blues and greens are better.

Branleuse Wed 21-Jun-17 17:17:11

you wouldnt be able to swim or raise your arms in it. It would be ok as a summer top, but not an actual bikini

Bluntness100 Wed 21-Jun-17 17:23:51

I love seafolly and have several of their kiara bikinis. This one is fine apart from the arms, it's got in built support and it's pretty colours. However IMO the arms make it look a bit daft. If you could wear it without those it would probably be lovely.

ZaraW Wed 21-Jun-17 17:27:38

Not many people would look good in that bikini and the arm bits are awful.

FeiYenKansu Wed 21-Jun-17 17:31:24

I bought this, it has straps. It's only available in a 16 now though.

I love bikini's but wouldn't wear one with annoying sleeves in the op!

LardLizard Wed 21-Jun-17 20:55:39

Ordered it now, I suppose it will go straight back ....
