Does all swimwear come with paddings?
Most of them come with removable paddings except the Renee Top. Renee Top is the first design that we came up with and we are extremely happy with how it turns out. We toyed with the idea of adding paddings however it just looked really bulky. Hence, we altered it to ensure that it covers the right places. Our designs are meant to be worn as comfortable as possible without worrying about a single thing!
