TRIANGL // Review


Hey everybody! Today I'm reviewing a brand I'm sure you're all familiar with TRIANGL which is an Australian swimwear and underwear company and the ladies over there were nice enough to not send me one thing to try out, but TWO! They sent me a bikini that they let me pick off of the website and a pair of underwear too! I opened up my email and saw their response I think I had to pick my jaw up off of the floor I was so shocked. 

The cool thing about their company is they make their swimsuits out of neoprene (like a wetsuit) so your bikini won't stretch out (like most do) and will last you forever! So it's definitely worth the money, because this bikini will last you so long.

Since it's made out of neoprene, it doesn't have much give to it. To figure out what size you are they have a 24 hour customer service window open 7 days a week where you can live chat to someone and they'll help you. (I checked the time that I was talking to a lady and it was 2:40 am in Australia, so thank you for all your help!) I didn't know what size I was because a small is 4-6 and a medium is a 6-8 so I was chatting to them about which to get. Also when they told me I could try a pair of their underwear I didn't know what size or style to get, and I'm trying to convert to wireless bras. And as I was trying to decide between the two styles they informed me that one style had an underwire (but omg it's so beautiful it could just be worn as a top with a high waisted skirt or shorts in the summer). They also helped me pick the size for my top since I'm on the bustier side but small around the ribs (34DD for reference)

Since they're an Australian brand I thought it would take a while to get to me (they said 3-10 days) but I think it took 4 or 5? so really really fast!



The packaging it comes in is GORGEOUS! The underwear comes in a box like this (you'll see later how it opens) and the bikini comes in a neoprene beach bag! So you get a bikini and a beach bag that you can just wash out and hang up to dry just like your bikini.


So it comes packaged like this (obviously flat I just pulled the strings to show you can wear it like a backpack) in a bag that matches your bikini with the bikini packaged inside.


The top ties at the neck and on the back so I got a Large in Santa Rosa Splash* (like I said I'm on the bustier side) but I'm glad that it has two ties because I have the hardest time finding cute comfortable bikinis that fit around my chest and around my ribcage. (these pictures are true to the actual color of the bikini and isn't she a beaut?)


The bottoms are low rise but also have pretty good coverage and are tight to your body since it's made of thick neoprene. If I went surfing I'd feel completely comfortable that this wouldn't fall off if I wiped out. I got a medium for reference and it fits like a dream.

My dad has been a scuba diver for 38 years with 4,000 hours underwater and was examining my bikini like he examines a wetsuit and his first question "Do they make wetsuits for men?" and then the second statement was "Man why do girls get all the cool stuff." He was so impressed with the quality of the bikini and that's really saying something for it's quality. I trust his opinion on how it's made (he was looking at the seams and feeling the material and was extremely impressed.)

I would model it for you but it's kind of snowing and really cold outside…you'll see it so much on my instagram in the summer don't worry.


The underwear they sent me is made of micro mesh and is so soft, I literally have never felt a softer bra in my life. I'm trying to convert to wearing bras without wire because they've done studies that the wire can cause excess bone growth on your ribs and decrease the collagen in your boobs which keeps them perky when you're 95 so I'm trying to switch over and they were SO nice to send me some underwear to try too.

The underwear comes in the box and has a little pull out drawer. I got the color Champagne Coral* and it is so bright, neon, and so beautiful I can't get over it. I'm still in shock that they sent it to me.


The top is SO comfortable. I got a size Large and it isn't too big around when I have the clip on the shortest hook. It has good coverage, kind of like a bikini top, and the micro mesh is SO SOFT it feels like satin. The band is also made of nylon and spandex but is so smooth and beautiful (I'm wearing it right now) you can barely even feel the bra. The fabric is considered Demi Sheer but I don't find it too see through. I wouldn't try and go swimming in it but it isn't showing everything.

I've been wearing it every day since I got it and fell asleep in it…and it literally feels like I'm not wearing a bra but my boobs look nice. Best bra I've ever worn (counting Victoria's Secret, and any brand you can think of, I've tried them all because I have such a strange chest size it's really hard to find bras that fit me and this one fits like a DREAM). I need more of these bra and underwear sets. Plain and simple. I'm hooked. For a bra and underwear set for $45, that's the price of a CHEAP Victoria's secret bra. And they do have different styles than this one you can see here.


The bottoms are equally as comfortable (although I do wish they had different underwear styles) made of the same type of material as the bra. The colored part is the micro mesh and the black ridges are the satiny feeling nylon/spandex material (although I'm pretty sure the micro mesh is made of nylon and spandex too). So the bra and underwear do have a stretch to them, but because they are spandex they won't wear out and lose their shape.
I am SO impressed with this company and so grateful that they sent me not one thing to try out but TWO! Both fit like a dream, and if you follow me on instagram you will definitely be seeing this bikini probably the whole summer.
The only problem is now I want to try more of them. I want to try their bandeau swimsuits. They're SO CUTE! If you click the link they have a zipper at the front! This brand is so original and unique I am so happy I got the chance to try their products (but now I want more! and my wallet hurts as I think about it)
Have you tried this brand or been lusting after it like I was (I kid you not, I was lusting over these bikinis for over a year). Also…Spring Break is coming up for all my fellow Americans *nudge nudge* this would be PERFECT to get if you're looking for a new bikini. Their customer service is AMAZING they'll help you find the exact size (if you're wary about buying online...I talked with them and ended up with one that fits PERFECTLY) Just go on their website TRIANGL and you'll DIE they're so beautiful I want everything (can you hear my wallet crying? I can...) They have their bikinis in basically any color and style that you would want. 
I know the rest of the world has a holiday coming up soon (?) and this would be perfect for it! Just give them a try and I promise you won't regret it. Their customer service is so wonderful you are sure to get a perfect fit. If you are in between sizes like I am (a small is size US 4-6 and a medium is 6-8) I would recommend going with the bigger size since neoprene isn't too forgiving.
Also their instagram http://instagram.com/triangl_swimwear is BEAUTIFUL! It makes me want summer so badly, I look outside and see snow and they're posting beautiful tropical locations with their beautiful bikinis. Jealous.

  2. it is!! I don't think I've ever been in love with a company as much as this one. Plus it comes with a beach bag that if you're at the beach you can just wash out and hang up to dry instead of trying to get all the sand out with your hands haha x


    Thanks for reading!

  9. oh okay. I didn't take pics in mine because it's kind of snowing and I'm freezing and don't have a nice white wall to take pictures against lol. Yeah i just looked on her instagram too but I've been flowing TRIANGL's instagram for a while and didn't see her on there

  11. Nice choices, those are such cute swimsuits and I love the bag they come with. I'm trying to get ready for summer now and build up my bathing suit wardrobe, I will have to check these out.

  12. they're amazing. so worth the money. i'll probably invest in some in the future. such good customer service too. love them as a brand. eating the bra right now too (TMI?) and it is the most comfortable bra ever

    ReplyDelete
  13. YES!!! They will last you forever too! My biggest pet peeve is when I bought a nice swimsuit for a good amount of money and it stretches out….these will never do that :) Invest in one you won't regret it

  14. I love the idea of a neoprene bikini! The colour is gorgeous :)

  15. I know! The idea is so original too! I'm surprised no one else thought of it but regardless it is an AMAZiNG bikini

  16. There's been such a hype about Triangl bikinis in Australia for so long. I just couldn't bring myself to get a pair. I've always been a bit apprehensive about spending so much money on a bikini that I couldn't try on in stores, but I never realised they had a live costumer service chat which might just be the thing I need. Thanks for the review, I think I might take the plunge! x

  17. I hope you do! I used their customer service and got a perfect fit but like i said if you're on the border of the size go to the size up. like a small is 4-6 and a medium is 6-8, I'm a 6 and the medium fits perfectly. and the customer service girls are sooooooo nice! So worth the money because it will last you forever. Glad I could help :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. wow these are so beautiful, the live customer chat is such a good idea as i'm always in between size xx

  28. I've been intrigued by this brand for a while. I love their simplistic designs but cant say I love their prices. I've been seeing quite a few budget-friendly alternatives but they aren't as nice.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Hey,
    I totally agree I love this brand and I got the dakota superfly bikini and I'm just in love with it but the only thing that bothers me is that I can't get the sand off the bikini :/

    ReplyDelete
  30. Sand gets stuck inside the material of these bikinis. It looks terrible and is hard to get out. I would not suggest spending money on these.

    ReplyDelete
  31. no not at all! they feel completely normal! Just the butt gets a strange fold when you stand up an are walking around. It's not rubbery-think more spandexy

    ReplyDelete
  32. i have two of these, one bought myself and have worn them to death living in california and vacationing in hawaii i only took my triangl bikinis and i've NEVER had that problem at all. the plus side is these haven't worn out in the slightest, they literally look brand new and i can't say that for my other bikinis after a long summer and more of wear and tear. sorry you feel that way but i will personally definitely be buying more of these

    ReplyDelete
  33. aw thank you so much!!!!! this post definitely gets a lot of traffic :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. thank you so much! I wish i was too haha but I'm lucky to have beaches galore when i go home from school to california :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. oh god its wonderful.

    ReplyDelete
  36. really? I haven't encountered that-maybe i just haven't because i treat them like my wetsuit because i am a scuba diver. do you wash them as soon as you take them off? I usually shower with them on and then take them off hang them over the shower bar and keep on showering haha maybe that will help!

    ReplyDelete
  37. The absolute worst customer service ever. You better be sure of your size because if you need to exchange or return it is a complete nightmare.

  40. Hi! Would you mind measuring the dimensions of the triangle top in size L? I'm trying to decide between L and XL. Thanks so much!
