SWIMWEAR | Ready for Summer
Now that summer is getting closer each day, it’s time to start looking for swimwear again! Finding the right piece can be a challenge, wether it be a one-piece or a two-piece. I can gladly say that I found my perfect bikini for this summer, even though I wasn’t particularly looking for one. It just happened!
I had never been to a blogger event, and I’m not even close to ever attending one representing my own blog. But unlike me, my close friend Silvy does have a very well visited blog and the right connections to get invitations every once in a while. Recently she got invited to attend an event for this lingerie store (Triumph) and she was allowed to bring someone with her – and she brought me! My first blogger event, yay! It was really nice!
At this event everyone got their perfect bra size measured, because apparently over 80% of all women wear the wrong bra size (at least that’s what they told us)! Crazy, isn’t it?! I found out that I was wearing the right size all along – yay me! Ok, moving on! We all got to pick one set of lingerie, swimwear or sleepwear after being measured, so that was definitely fun (and very time-consuming, in a good way!)!
I tried on a lot of lingerie sets – and I loved most of them. But when I tried on this bikini I was sold! It was still hard to choose, but I’m pretty sure I made the right choice after all.
I fell in love with the color of this bikini! It’s a deep royal blue combined with white and some subtle hints of coral in the detailing. The color combination and the stripes remind me of a sailor, how cute is that?! The texture of the fabric is really interesting. It almost feels as if it’s knitted or something.
I love triangle and bandeau bikini tops, but I think this regular bra-like top piece fits me better. I do need that extra bit of support, if you know what I mean. The thing that is also really convenient for me is the shape of the bottom part! Usually when I look at cute bikinis, they either come with thongs or granny pants. I don’t like wearing either of those, haha. This bottom fits perfectly, it does show a bit off my buttocks (no granny pants, yay!) but it isn’t nearly as revealing as a thong. It’s basically like a Brazilian bikini bottom. Perfect!
The straps are, of course, adjustable and the top closes with a snap closure in the back.
Did you find your perfect swimwear for this summer yet?
