Is this where we leave our review?
I too have asked a couple of times about crop tops so thrilled to see them!
Thrilled also to be able to pick one up in the sales, the citrine which actually turns out I LOVE!
They only had large left, which I decided to go with as after buying the medium swim suit combo found I was POPPING out of the medium rather badly!!
Was a good decision as the large much better for me (breastfeeding may have something to do with it, though I could prob be a large in the bottoms too!)
Like someone else above, I’m finding it is already pulling down quite a bit (like needs tighter straps), and that bottom edging is not wide enough.
I would be very interested to see what other designs are coming as I am OVER bras and this is what I want to be wearing now!!
I have to say all the caterpillar thundies I’ve been giving as presents are going down SO well!! My sister loves hers so much she wore for 2 days in a row, couldn’t take them off! And our little five year old Thea also LOVES hers, and I love how oldschool they look, so awesome!
Thanks Thundies!!

I’m another big busted person, and I was also worried about the sizing – I went in the end by the recommendation on the page to get the same size as underpants – rather than by the bust sizing, as I was concerned about falling out of the bottom, so to speak. This was the correct decision – I wouldn’t want the bottom to be any looser. But it does mean that the fabric around the bust is definitely stretched a bit. The stretchedness means that the fabric only just covers my bust – there is absolutely no coverage of the torso below the bottom of the bra; and my bra thoroughly shows at the top (along with a very generous amount of cleavage)

When I saw you were making crop tops I wanted one for 2 reasons.

(1) When going out for a run/walk on a hot day I’ve ended up tucking my tshirt into my bra, in order to get air on my skin and cool down. I’ve envied women I’ve seen out in crop tops, and was wondering about buying one for myself. This crop top is FAR too crop for me to ever be comfortable doing that – too much cleavage/bra showing at both the top and too much skin at the bottom. (and somewhat similarly, I would never wear it at the gym where I might be seen by people I don’t know really well)

(2) To wear while doing yoga at home – possibly instead of a bra. It’s perfectly satisfactory for this. Controls my breasts a bit, without being tight or restricting.

Overall – very happy to salute the sun at home in it, but not outdoors. So a partial success from my point of view.

Got my Crop top yesterday and wore it last night and today. I ordered a Medium which was probably a touch big. I should have ordered a small, But it’s definitely wearable. I’m going to order a small too. The Medium is fine for lounging, but if I was moving around a lot, the Small would be a snugger fit. Overall, I LOVE it. I love the matching set idea. I would definitely buy several!

I got my black crop tops yesterday and have one on today (over a bra) for a nice shape under my scoop neck top.
I was worry about the sizing – I am a size 16 and DD cup. I ordered a size L which is very comfortable – I wouldn’t want it bigger around the torso. The fabric is lovely.
I would suggest 2 things for us larger gals –
1. more support around the binding under the breasts.
2. more fabric in the front of the top (cup) for larger sizes – there needs to be about an extra 1cm in the scoop neckline – as larger breasts fill up all the fabric and this drags the scoop down too low creating too much flesh exposed.
I hope that makes sense!
Apart from that I love the crop-top and would buy many more if there was more fabric in the larger sizes for those of us with bigger breasts.

Got my crop top last week. Very comfy, great for round the house and yoga. Was concerned about the size as I am DD cup and 32 (10), so got the small and yep, pretty good fit. (maybe you might do a size 8?) Fabric great not too thin like other sports tops. Looking forward to trying other styles as described by other reviews in test kitchen.

I love my new crop too. Worn every day when it’s not in the wash….a little more support so my boobs don’t go east & west would make it even better.

I got my new bra/crop top and put it straight on and then wore it to bed and then woke up and left it on all the next day. It’s just perfect for weekends and lazy days around the house. You have a bit of coverage but no discomfort. I love it. And I can’t wait to try the new shape.

Hi Rosa,

we are working on Crop Top 2 , the engineered version. this will have a more V like shape and different straps. Not as thin as the cami but all round a bit more elegant.

I got my crop top two days ago and it has been wonderful! So comfortable and easy. A couple of things that would be nice to see in future styles would maybe be one with thinner straps (like the ones on your camis?) and a lower neck or more triangular shape so they can be worn with v-necks. Cheers!

Hi Vicki, it is similar but the different fabric content means it isn’t exactly the same.

Love your swimsuit crop top, is it the same?
