I've always said that you only look as good as your undergarments. So you can imagine my delight now that lingerie makers are getting in on the swimsuit game, with tops that are designed like bras, complete with underwire, cup and back sizing and adjustable straps. The best part? The colors and patterns are chic, sophisticated and definitely not dowdy.
