Melissa's CommentsSolo cups are based on US sizing, but they are very generous. If you wear US-sized bras, order the cup size you typically wear. If you prefer UK-sized bras, consider the following before placing your order:
First, I really wouldn't recommend this top for anyone over a 34 band. While this style can technically accommodate any band size, the back is an adjustable string that doesn't provide much support for fuller busts, and it can become uncomfortable after a while. If you have a difficult time getting a band small and firm enough to stay in place (a common problem for women in the 26-30 band range), then you will probably love this top!
Again, these cups are very generous. A stated D cup should accommodate up to a DD cup size, and a stated DD cup should accommodate from about an E to F UK cup size. Fuller sizes are estimated, and depend a lot on your breast shape/fullness. A stated E cup should accommodate from UK FF-G cup size. A stated F cup should accommodate from UK GG-H cup sizes.
If you have very soft breasts, you should note that Solo is a plunge style. You may find a better fit in a Panache or Freya style if you normally have problems with your softer breast tissue sliding or scooting out of plunge styles, or if you have a lot of side tissue.
The Body Glove Simply Me Solo Bikini Top (3951115D) is a traditional bikini top with underwire for support and convertible straps that let you wear your Solo straight or in a crossover style. The blue-on-white pinstripe pattern is flattering and classic while still being on-trend, and the Solo bikini top has foam pads to minimize show-through that can be removed for a more form-fitting look. Mixes and matches well with other Body Glove swimwear pieces (bikini bottoms sold separately).
