    Yes, I think so. I have seen them on smaller busts and think that is about all they would work on.

    I only WISH I could wear a suit like that. Even my swim suits need underwire!

    THanks. I love the color and don't have any bathing suits that are of this style.

    I like the first one better. I have one like the second one, and I feel like it's always tugging around my neck.

    I know what you mean. I own one like the second one, and thought it was because it was a bit too small. Well, I'll get the first one, and decide later if I still want the second one.

    Thanks!

    A bandeau would NOT look good on someone with a large chest. That is definitely appropriate for the small chest.

    I agree with the posters. I think that with the halter it can emphasize a smaller chest while the bandeau can make you look a bit bustier.

    I have to say I too am jealous, I think the bandeau tops are so cute, but just do NOT work with a bigger busted woman.

    I've read enough fashion mags to know what kind of clothing looks better for various body types & this 2nd one (halter style) would be better for smaller chested people. But hey! whichever you like better, get it! :)

    Peachy, would you consider getting both?? Two different looks for a pretty decent price....

    One of my "no boob" friends has the bandeau-style top on a one-piece suit, and the style is flattering.

    We were quite the pair while shopping. Finding a store that sold both AA and DD bathing suit tops was a challenge.

    I have one like the second, and really like the way it works on me...no experience with one of the first style. Something else to think about-- how would either one leave tan lines?

    I am a member of this small chested club, B cup, TMI? Sorry! Hehe. I think they both work, but I like the first one the best! I didn't know Old Navy had such cute suits, I may go buy that 1st one, that looks really cute and I don't have any that style either!! :)

    I have had a bandeau-topped bikini for the past three years and as cute as the style is, it's impossible to swim in - even when it's tied tightly and when just lightly swimming (really should just say "moving") from one end of the pool to the other can cause the top to come down. I can just imagine what damage ocean waves would cause! Ha ha!

    The first one is a little more modern, but I think the second one is better for a petite figure. And there is more support (even small busts need support). Plus, what emmakate said.

    A Man's opinion
    The first one it does have a neck strap so I do not think you would have a "slippage" problem and I think it is "nice" (DIL said I couldn't say HOT) the second looks like it would be good for a "Fuller" figured woman

    Of course I like my Bathing suit

    I own something like the second one and the way I tie it on and pull, er, my chest, gives me a really nice fake cleavage. :D

    So, I decided to get both. :D Thanks all

    ETA: hee hee hee, I just ordered both tops, with a matching boy short bottoms, and, oh, a few other things!!!! :D

    I agree. In my experience this style looks better. :cool: The first one would work better on a smaller chest than a larger chest, but that doesn't necessarily mean it will be flattering for a small chest.

    Let us know how they work out.
