X Factor Bikini and Tankini

(1 customer review)


What is an “X Factor”? It’s that special variable that could have an enormous impact on a situation or a quality that is special in some way.

I’m pretty sure this swim top will be the X Factor in your summer plans.

    I love the Xfactor it has great instructions and I used some new techniques that I hadn’t done before. I made it into my new swim suit with the Alice High Rise and I love that I’m covered for modesty but still stylish.
