Xhilaration Bandeau BikiniXhilaration channels island style with this golden bandeau swim top.

No one expects much for $14.99 these days. It'll buy a couple of meals at your local takeaway shop, a few fashion magazines, but rarely clothes of real substance. But funnily enough, that's exactly what you get with this bandeau top that punches well above its weight.

I'm really impressed by the attention to detail here. The large tribal beads add real flair to the halter style straps, and the keyhole makes the bandeau seem even more alluring. The gold color is also impressive. It's eye-catching, as all good metallics should be, but it's not too glitzy or glamorous. The muted hue should impress girls that ordinarily would never dream of wearing gold.

And we get all those little extras the luxury designers treat us with, such as removable padding in the bust and full polyester lining throughout. If Xhilaration has cut any corners I'm not sure what they are!

If we want to nitpick we can see a few flaws. The blend of nylon and spandex requires careful hand washing, so it's not as easy to care for as many swimsuits. That halter strap also isn't ideal for active beachgoers. I'd be a bit nervous about a wardrobe malfunction in the waves!

But this bandeau bikini is beautiful, and it's dirt cheap. That makes it a winner in my eyes!
