Shanti Surf Triangle Top
I wear a size 4 in all my tops and bras and this particular item I sized up to a 6 as I read the reviews and still my cleavage is spilling out of it in and out of the water. As I purchased this item on WMTN I'm stuck with it. :(

So Disappointed! a self esteem buster for sure!
I wish this was a five star review... i fell in love with the look of this swim suit and jumped at the chance to grab the Shanti Surf Triangle Top and the Shanti Surf Bikini when the became available at WMTM. I purposely sized up because of talk of fitting small. Normally lulu mail day is a joyous event but you can not imagine how upset i was upon recieving this top and the bottoms too. At first look the top is amazing. It is well made and just really a beautiful bikini top. I was a bit leary of the size holding it up but figured it would be fine. I was wrong. Never in my life has something been so mis-sized! a 10, not in this lifetime.!! it's not even an 8. I got my 11 year old daughter to try it on and it doesnt even fit her properly so its not even a regular 6! Because it's a WMTM i am stuck with a beautiful bathing suit that i could never hope to fit into and an overall feeling of disappointment towards Lululemon for such an error in sizing judgement.

Wow, before buying I double checked the size guide, which confirmed what I already know, I am a 32A. I listened to reviews and sized up to a size 6 but the top is still too small. Lulu, I am so disappointed! The top is so tight that I have muffin boobs and my nipples fall out. This just doesn't make any sense. This top also gives me weird back fat, which again, I don't have. It's one thing to have a suit that is snug enough to stay put in the water but this is ridiculous. There is no way I would classify this top as sportswear. I always buy high quality suits because I water ski, wakeboard, knee board, swim, and am generally always in the water. I wouldn't be able to wear this to to the beach because it is indecent. Now I'm stuck with this top I can't even wear because I got it from wmtm. I won't be purchasing another Lulu suit in the future.

Being a 32a, I often have trouble finding tops that are flattering to my chest. I love this top! I got black and it is very supportive but doesn't flatten out my chest. It probably would not be right for women with larger chests, but is perfect for anyone with an a or b cup, as the description states.

I was soooo excited when I saw the swim suits were arrived on the website! I have been waiting since last year to finally have my Lululemon swim suit that would stay in place when I am active. So I bought this top in a size 6 since I have the exact measurements. Chest 34, waist 26 and hips 37 and found it a too tight particularly in the back... It gave me some excess fat on the sides and in between the crossed bands which I do not have...! I was so disappointed! I returned it to size up and got an 8 which was a COMPLETE mistake! The band was so loose when I moved around it would slide up and down and I could just imagine going in the water and completely loose the top at the first wave. I went from having excess back fat to not even staying in place. The difference between the sizes are too much! I am really frustrated because I got the size 8 in the wmtm section and can't return it.... Now I am stuck with a top I can't even wear!

Looks just like the pic, but.....
At 5'10" 150 and a 36B, the back fits great, no bulge or back fat. The issue isn't with the top so much, (as the model's boobs are not so covered in the pic) as it is with my body.
Pre baby boobs that are fuller would have been super cute with this little coverage as long as you are no bigger than a B cup. When I bend over, mine fall out and there is that odd muffin top from the side. I also have the bikini bottoms which are very little coverage and cute.
Bottom line: this is not an active wear top, it is however a super cute way to flaunt the hard work you put in at yoga.

This swim top is soooooooo adorable. I purchased a size 8 for 32D bust and compared to other reviews complaining about boob coverage i thought overall the cleavage area was fine showed the ladies nicely but when I turn to the side my boobs look like muffin tops hanging out of the top :*( NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO and after 10 mins started feeling uncomfortable. I called several stores to see if they had a larger size...maybe that would help?? dunno, no luck... but I guess regardless I would have been stuck with it since I got it from wmtm, i guess i was just hoping for the best. Too bad this didn't work out.

Ouch! Not comfortable :(
Unlike the other reviews I am not complaining about the fit. It informs you that it is low coverage and for smaller cup sizes. I tried this on in the store and loved it! I always find it difficult to find a bathing suit made for an athletic body. I wore it out to the beach for about 2 hours, and had to change out of it because the circular things where the top attaches to the straps in the front chaffed me, and cut me. I tried adjusting the straps to make it looser, which didn't help, then tighter, which also did not help. I always spend more money to buy lululemon products because they are so much more comfortable than most other products however spending 90$ on this bathing suit (top and bottom) was a complete waste of money. I wish this didn't hurt me, because it is so cute!

not much coverage
I'm a 36B, 5'6", 150lbs muscular/athletic
I'm normally a medium in all my clothing, with recent medium bikini purchase at victoria's secret. I ordered this top because I loved the back. now when I was ordering it, it only showed up to size 10. so I ordered a 10. it seems to fit well, but I have little coverage on my boobs. I consider myself to be "small" in that area, but if I bend over in this top, they pop out. I've worn it to do laps on a few occasions and they seem to stay in place, but I would be a bit shy to be on a beach wearing this top.
was it ever available in a size 12? I wonder if perhaps that would have been better. but at the time, it was not even an option. too late now as it seems to be discontinued. booo.

Not for anyone larger then a A Cup
I had my eye on this all season and finally took the plunge when I saw it on clearance. I followed the guides and sized up to an 8 when Im usually a 6 in lulu bras. When the top arrived it did not fit at all. Serious spillage and wouldnt hold the girls in through any kind of activity.
