I recently ordered a bandeau bikini top and bottoms. The top fit well, looked great, I was happy with the purchase.
I haven't used it much yet this summer-- only trying it on at home a few times and one afternoon of use, laying in the sun. I tried it on one more time tonight before heading out for a week-long beach vacation, starting tomorrow, and the plastic gold clasp in the back snapped in half and now my bandeau top is useless. I contacted customer service as soon as it happened and was told the only thing I could do is have them reorder the suit for me, except it is backordered until September 17th, otherwise I'm out of luck.
I am extremely upset that after practically no use this top, which was pretty expensive, is completely useless. Victoria's Secret needs to make sure that if they decide to use such cheap, breakable material as the single-most important piece of a bathing suit top, they at least make it easy to repair.
