View Full Version : Need your opinion about options for tops

Here is the thing.

Even though my Magictail fits me perfectly, the bikini top is another story. I am a 38D, and the bra that came with the tail is just too small for me to use; even in dry there is risk of my breasts popping out by the side or the front, and there's no way I can use it on water.

However, I like the fabric a lot because it matches the tail, so I've been thinking about buying a blue bra such as this:

And sewing the bikini top to it. Obviously the canvas will be bigger, but since they are 2 shades of similar blue maybe it will look OK.

Or, I am in love with these tops from Raven:

Since she says she can paint them any color, I am thinking on ordering one. If the blues don't match it does not matter to me.
But, there is little chance I will be swimming in my tail for a long time. Even though, I would love to have a really nice top that could be used for swimming. I don't know.

What are your thoughts?

I like making stuff myself, so I'm into the idea of modifying a bra. I'm going to be making my own swim tops from now on anyway. Swim suits never seem to have the right support for me.
How about maybe painting the bra to match instead? I suppose you could attach the bikini top to it, but it wouldn't have the same pattern all the way around. Or you could sew it on and paint the rest.

Even when you stop using your tail, the top could still work fine for swimming on its own. You could even take the tail apart and make swim bottoms out of it once its life as a tail has ended.

I enjoy arts and crafts, even if I have crafters ADHD, and I find a sense of accomplishment when you have made something yourself. I would definately reccomend making your own then you can add pearls/aquarium plants/ etc to make it your own! Good luck, I <3 magictail

Love to see it Raina I bet it will be funny. But Talia the only advice I can give is (even though I'm a male) do what you feel most comfortable in. You are the one that has to wear it. Your choices are many an you have a few good ideas. Try and see what works best.
