J. Crew revolutionized my summers when I discovered its mix-and-match bikini separates. No longer did I have to waste money on two suits just to stock away the smaller bottoms and give away the more accommodating tops to my shapelier girlfriends.
I knew better, though. An attempt at sex appeal would have been to wear the shirt open (save for the last few buttons underneath her ladies) coupled with a lacy black cami and a push-up-and-out balconet bra. That might have been sexy. C's look was more unstudied than that -- she just bought a too-tight shirt.
