Not seeing this on a model was misleading. I was under the impression the back V had more coverage, but your back is fully exposed. I can't see how this would work reversed, with the V in front, without feeling like you're flashing everyone. I struggled debating if I could wear this at the gym, where it should be suitable, but it's just way too open for my comfort level. On the plus side, LOTS of ventilation. It would have been perfect if the crossover had more closure.
