Sporti Double Cross Workout Bikini Top and Sporti Classic Workout Swim Bottom
A solid product without the high price tag
My Initial Reaction:
I ordered size small in both the top and bottom. Upon first receiving the bikini, I noticed that the top looked a bit small and the bottoms looked a bit big. The top, although slightly smaller cut than most people might prefer, was actually a perfect fit for my preference. I don't like too much extra material on top to create too much drag in the water. The bottoms, however, seem to be cut a bit more generously than the top. I personally like my bottoms to be cut a bit smaller for both tan-line and drag purposes. So, in retrospect I probably would have ordered a size down. However, if you're not into having as much butt-cheek showing, these bottoms are cut very true-to-size.
My Opinion Now:
I have swam in this bikini several times and have biked in the top (as a sports bra) twice. And, I have to say, this is a quality product that withstand just as much as a more expensive brand. The pool where I train tends to have a VERY high chlorine concentration that usually results in a see-through lycra suit after only a few wears. However, this suit has held up nicely over two weeks of swim practices both maintaining its shape and original color. Oh, and I obviously have to mention the compliments I received on how cute the straps of this suit are!

Additionally, I would like to mention that I think this top could be a great alternative to a sports bra during those super-sweaty summer months. After two, 50-plus mile bike rides, I never had any chafing or comfort problems. However, just be careful how small you order this top if you plan on running it!
