The new idea: swim tops and trunks you buy separately. You get true-you fit because you order the size that fits you best in each part. And you can interchange the tops ( striped blue, green, yellow and orange) with the solid-color trunks.
Here, the intrigue of a hooded poncho combines with the allure of a bikini… both in a blue, green and black woven plaid of rayon that has the texture of linen.
The bra top is shape-sure with pre-molded inner cups that uplift and separate; straps adjust or tuck away; back but-ton closing. The hip-level shorts have an elasticized waist with back zipper for snug fit. The poncho’s hood is lined with blue cotton.
