Perfect fit, supportive and modern style for a busty gal.

I have been looking for a sexy but supportive bra style swimsuit at this size for years. I was hesitant to order something expensive from AU to USA but I was desperate and I am so happy I took the chance. It is so well made and comfortable. I especially love that it has an adjustable clasp so as it stretches with time, I can make it tighter. I only wish it came in more colors!

The Best Fit You'll Ever Find.

I am so impressed with the fit & comfort of my Form & Fold bather tops, I ~hate~ browsing for swimwear because it is so uncomfortable & never seems to fit right but I have had the exact opposite experience with my purchases from this brand. Highly recommend and not to mention - the quality of the fabric & trims are outstanding. I've ever found myself subbing in my bather top for a bra in the summer months, never before in my life would I have done this! Well done & thank you!

Pretty Perfect

After what seemed like a wild goose chase of finding a properly fitting swimsuit, I was lucky enough to stumble upon Form and Fold last summer. The new dreamy woodland color was my second purchase of The Base, and I don't think I'll need to ever look for another top option again, but will look forward to adding more colors to my collection. Comfortable, supportive, well-constructed, and the fabric is beautiful. A perfect contained-yet-sexy vibe.

a must for a big bust

This is the first bikini I’ve worn that I feel completely confident in. Having a smaller waist and bigger bust I can never find a top that fits snug so I was beyond pleased to find the fold. Thank you for helping me find a bit of inner self love!
