Please note that the cup size is only a suggested size and also depends on other factors, such as your band length and individual shape of your body. Please align your cup and bust measurement with the sizing chart and the sizes you usually wear in similar items. Measure bustover the fullest part (usually over the nipples) when wearing an unpadded bra or a bikini top. This is also up to individual preference: do you like your top to havemore coverageand therefore would prefer a larger size? Or would you like your top to be really snug and therefore havemore support? Or if you’d prefer both, choose an adjustable style in a larger size.
Lilja the Label's Drawstring Bra is that extra feminine top style you’ve been looking for. The soft lilac gingham print reminds us of the long summer days on the countryside. The Drawstring Bra has thin adjustable straps and a hook closure in the back. This top style offers medium support and the coverage of the cups can be adjusted with the drawstring in between the cups. This top is not padded but it's double lined for extra coverage and support.
Made using recycled materials (REPREVE® recycled bottles).
86% REPREVE® recycled PA, 14% EA

Size & Fit
We know that swimwear sizing can be tricky! If you need any help, do not hesitate to get in contact.
A lot of sizing is up to individual preference: you can think of whether you like your swimwear to be tight-fitting, which we recommend for water sports, or a bit on the looser side, which on the other hand is perfect for tanning and relaxing. If you prefer a snug fit, shop your usual size – if you prefer a more loose-fitting size or a bit more coverage, choose a size up. If you are in between sizes, you could probably wear both – the smaller one will be snug and the larger one more loose-fitting.
Please also note that swimwear will also always feel snug when worn dry and for the first time. The fabric will always get a tad softer after being worn a couple of times.
