    Most likely. I think I'm gonna try that style though, just with a better upper bit.

    Anil if you get one of those and modify it, post a pic. It's definitely a cool style!

    I'm a bit modest myself...especially since my stomach is as white as paper and from my chest up is tan. I just created the greated top ever 2 weeks ago but never posted pics. I'll be making two more this weekend and will post pictures of all 3 when I'm done.

    I'm just wondering why every top maker only makes the halter neck style??

    I have a swimsuit in the halterneck style which I rarely wear even though its the most expensive one I ever bought! Bought on overseas trip...

    When I did wear it, it feels like my swimmers are trying to strangle me! Which is why atm, I'm looking at ways to turn my Fin fun swimmers, I got the bikini and tankini tops, into racer or cross back tops.

    Also, I never realized until now, how much menopause makes one feel so bloated... I'm like a skinny binny with a big fat tummy! Which looks very odd when one goes into a swimsuit... I've had strange old ladies asking me, when its due or if its a boy or a girl!

    Siren Tide is currently working on a set of tops made entirely of netting. It would be very easy to make ours modest. One girl's top even has little net sleeves and a bow! The other is a halter style. I do like to deviate from the norm with tops and can't wait to do the sleeves on Lorelie's top because they will be very cute and very fun. If you do a full netting top modesty is quite easy to achieve. You simply make the netting extend down to your hips, and then create sleeves!

    That sounds super but I'm allergic to acrylic fibers. I don't wear acrylic jumpers or netting made with plastic rope.

    Irene, all of us post menopause mermaids can relate to the tummy issue! It's just biology; fat redistributes in the absence of estrogen. But that's incentive for us to be creative in full coverage tops!

    My latest idea is to start with a triathlon suit base, since they zip up the front, then add sequins. Some tri suiits have designs that look a lot like reef fish:

    The halter style stays on the best. Otherwise straps fall off your shoulders. And strapless is dangerous lol. I think halter is easy to make, easy to size, and stays on

    I'm with Raina. I really prefer a halter top. It usually ties behind the neck, as opposed to sliding strap adjustment, so you can quickly get it precisely as tight as you want it. And it shows off those lovely mermaid shoulders!

    My best-looking top is, by far, my hair.
    Everything else looks fabricated.

    It was very modest too
    (at least while I wasn't moving. I fear it's not very practical for swiming )

    I personally don't like the way racerbacks look, but they should work fine. I can actually only wear halters for the most part because of strap lengths

    I like racerbacks. For the summer tail that's still in the works, I'm going to sew a large dorsal fin onto the Y of the racerback.

    That's a great idea, Irene!

    I love that idea. I've been wanting a dorsal that goes up my back.
