I've been double-crossed!

Help me find this cool bikini top. It looks like a sports bra from the front, but with thin straps, and crosses twice in the back.

Hard to explain exactly what the crosses were there for since I didn't really get a chance to study the back in detail - but the crossed pairs of straps were one above the other. The top cross was taller than the bottom one and they both crossed over the full width of the back. I'd never seen a bikini that had 2 crosses in the back and I thought it looked pretty slick. I saw variations on this bikini top twice on vacation last week and can't seem to figure out what to call this style or who makes it. It looks like athletic wear, rather than a beachy swimsuit. Anyone know what I'm talking about?

Lululemon sold a very popular sports bra that looked like this a few seasons back... I see it at the gym all the time. You might want to check eBay.

Here's one! Only available in print, though. Swim season is over and most suits are on clearance, so you may not be able to find exactly what you want until next year.

Response by poster: Nope, none of those are it :( The crosses didn't actually cross each other, if that makes any sense. I think the top cross was like the standard cross back bikini top, and then I think the bottom cross picked up where that one left off and actually connected the top and bottom limits of the bra portion.

Nike has this suit in various prints, and the back looks right (see alternate views).
