Reviews: Cherry Grass Maillot

Saturday, May 16, 2009

The Cherry Grass Maillot ($258) has an appealing grass pattern and a ruffly accents on the decolletage. And it has an underwire! This top is now out at the Rockefeller Plaza store in NYC but where the heck was it last week when I needed it??? Actually it was probably out and I missed it.

I love the glamour/throwback swim fashion right now and this one-piece fits right in. It is a bit understated and the pattern all over is a bit more difficult to pull off than say, solid black. I tried on a size 8, a size 10 and a size 12. The 8 was really small on me! Like, laughably so. The 10 was much better. The 12 was a bit loose in the bottom to the degree that I would worry about saggage after swimming. So if I was to buy this I would get the 10.

The suit has enough give in the chest area to hold d-cups. I would describe it as kind of like a Victoria's Secret swimsuit though in that you give away a little bit. The suit will be more demure for sizes a through c-cups. The removable halter strap was way too long on me also -- I'd have to trim it a bit to assist in holding me correctly.

Not a grand slam but certainly a nice option. Way to go Anthro!
