    Promising review: "Finally! A cute top that shows off the girls, but also still provides support. To my large-chested women — this top doesn’t hurt your neck and is made from a soft, stretchy, bungee-like material. For reference, I’m a 40D, and the L fit great. I LOVE it and now own five different colors. It can be dressed up or down, and while showing a significant amount of side boob when wearing it, it still looks classy. I don’t ever write reviews, but I’m absolutely obsessed with this top!" —Sam Wheeler
