For this reason we are excited to bring to you Akua’s favourite design, the classical Tie Up Top. Created for any ocean occasion, we have used strong under breast elastic for extra support, with thin back straps, to be styled just for you! Weather you are laying on the sand or tackling the waves, we promise this top will withstand any ocean bloopers you throw it.
