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.
