BravissimoSanta Monica Bikini Top


4.6 out of 5 starsfrom a total of 48 reviewsRead all reviews


This cleverly constructed crop top bikini for Bravissimo girls has all the support of a wired balconette hidden underneath the textured fabric. We hope you'll love the super flattering scoop neck and that you'll feel spoilt for choice with coordinating bottoms. We’d love to know what you think if you give it a go!

Great top, shame about the bottoms!

Review published on:

Customer rating:3 out of 5 stars

This is a very supportive top and gives great shape, without padding. Nice to have a bikini top you don't feel too exposed in. I am tall, with an average build, but found the bikini top dug in a little under the arms. The bottoms are another story I'm afraid. The regular briefs have a keyhole cutout at the back, so they keep puffing up with air when you're in the water, threatening to expose you. The tanga briefs are a lovely fit on the waist, but cover very little of your bum and ride up instantly.

Is anything flattering in 34 GG?

Review published on:

Customer rating:4 out of 5 stars

While I didn’t feel the bikini top was amazing (5 stars), it was great (4 stars) for coverage and quality. So, yes, I had confidence I wouldn’t fall out, but I didn’t feel comfortable enough with the look of the top to walk around, without immediately putting a cover up or towel on when not in the pool. I am large on top and average elsewhere. At 5-3”, I weigh 150lbs and wear a size 8-10 bottom. I wore my own multicolored skirt bottoms which matched the black swim top. Just eh. I don’t like to stand out, but I felt like my girls were the only things doing so. And, more so in a tent way, than a cleavage-spilling way. Not very flattering! I ordered a 34 GG, but probably should’ve gone with just the one G cup, maybe even down to F/FF. My UK size according to comprehensive measuring guides is 34 H/HH. I read where you should size down, which I did, but still didn’t feel compressed enough in the 34 GG. In fact, hardly at all. I’m used to wearing minimizing sports bras for my regular bras, though, so maybe that’s why I felt my girls were kinda in your face, albeit, completely covered. Hard to explain, but the bad part is, there really are no other options for my size. The quality of the workmanship is good, but for $77, it was basically spent out of necessity and not with the excitement I was hoping to have after reading the reviews. Oh, one last thing, it SHOWS temperature changes like nobody’s business...maybe that’s also why I wanted to cover up right away! I wish I had taken an old suit with the little removable liners with me on vacation, so I could’ve sewn them into the cups of the suit. But, with all that said, I still feel better in this suit than your average Target or dept store suit. I don’t regret this purchase.

So flattering and comfortable. I’ve had a mastectomy, and I was able to sew a pocket into this that fits my prosthetic. No one was any the wiser.

I love this bikini and agree with other girls that I hope Bravissimo offer this in other colours. I don't like my boobs on show and the style is just what I've been looking for, where are the swimsuits in the same fit?? Its so comfy and true to size.

I love this bikini top so much, bought it in black, now I will buy in blue just to have a back-up. This top suits my active summer life, I can play beach-ball, run into the sea, play with my kids without worrying about the boob situation. Please never stop making it!

Best Bikini Ever!

I love this bikini! I bought it in the blue and black and don't regret a penny spent! It's so comfortable and supportive but looks cute and on trend! Honestly can't give this bikini enough praise! My wish would be for more colours - lemon/coral/polka dot and also for the same style in a swimsuit!

Loved this bikini top. Finally something that looks cute but actually has coverage, read; no chance of a wardrobe malfunction, and great support. I only wish they had more colors (for any Bravissimo designers reading this, I would love a coral). I ordered two sizes since I am never quite sure what UK size I am and I ended going with the smaller one, which fit really well. Not a comment on the fit of this item, just on Bravissimo's lack of a UK to US size conversion chart. Overall, would recommend.

Top straps are too thin

Review published on:

Customer rating:2 out of 5 stars

I loved the way the top fit for a bikini because it looks like a sports-style bra and holds well, but the straps are too thin which causes them to dig into my shoulders. Big boobs need thick shoulder straps. The model looks great, but her boobs are rather small to be able to relate to the rest of us.
