Fit Review: Water Bound Singlet Vs. Coastal Tank

My store had just a few pieces in today from last nights upload, the Water Bound Singlet and the Water Bound Hoodie, and Water Bound Bra. I was really hoping to see the Shanti Surf Shorts. They had in the new Groovy Stripe Cadet Blue Cool Racerback, Wee Are From Space Blue Tropics and Barely Pink Space Dye. No Heathered Earl Grey CRB. 

I was a bit disappointed in the Water Bound Singlet but that is probably because I compare it to the Coastal Tank which I feel is finished off much nicer and feels more substantial. I take a 10 in Cool Racerbacks but in the Coastal Tank I size down to an 8 (seen in picture below) and still get a flowy drapey fit. The Water Bound Singlet is cut narrower with much less of an A-Line and so my usual size 10 fit much better although it felt clingy at the bust. The material is the same swim fabric I believe, but feels thinner. Also, the bottom hem of the tank is unfinished and just a raw cut unlike the Coastal Tank which is finished off. I'm also not liking the laser cut holes in this, or the Apex Stripe Dune. The Dune makes it look like a dirty off white.
