TRIANGL SWIMWEAR | Lilies and boobies
This title.. Lilies and boobies? Denise, you’re a weirdo. I know, I know. I just want to share that – against all odds – girls with bigger boobies can in fact wear Lily (and Winnie) style Triangl bikinis! :D Yay life!
I’ve been getting multiple requests to show pictures of how my Poppy style bikini looks on me. Especially by girls with the same cup size (EU 75D*). Now that I have a Lily style Triangl bikini (which I have been given by Triangl as a gift – I feel so blessed!!), the requests have doubled. I totally understand why – because I’ve been there. I’ve been loving the Lily style too, but the Triangl live chat girls told me that they wouldn’t recommend this style for my cup size. It’s actually made for girls who carry a bit less – umm.. – boobage up there.
After talking to Germaine – who had just bought two Lily styles and has the same breast measurements as me – and seeing her pictures a while back, I was convinced. I needed a Lily in my life! When Triangl contacted me about sending me a free bikini, I was so flabbergasted that I couldn’t pick just one! I sent them some options that I love, and told them to surprise me. I ended up getting a Lily style in the color ‘Strawberry Kiss’. I was keen. So keen.
Sizing for tops
So the thing with Triangl sizings is – they differ per style. Most styles range from sizes XS to XL. You would think that, if you have a bigger bust, you should just get an L or XL. But when you go up a size, the underbust also gets larger. The underbust is, like, your torso – right under your boobs. So if I would get an L top, maybe the cup will fit my ladies, but the underbust part will be too wide, which you definitely don’t want! Some styles (Chloe and Lulu) have an adjustable back tie, so for those I would definitely go for an L. But the Lily style, like most styles, has a back clasp fastening, so it can’t be adjusted. I know that I fit the S in the clasp fastening styles (for my Poppy style, I have an S+ top, which means the underbust is S and the cups are a size bigger), but the M is alright too. The L would definitely be too large, though. That’s why I chose the Lily in M, which turned out to be perfect! A little tight around the ladies, but not problematic and still plenty comfy.
Anyway, I initially started this post telling how I’ve been getting these requests for pictures of me in my Triangl sets. I’m guessing you’re reading all of this because you want to know what I have to say to that? I’m sorry for blabbing so much. I haven’t been sharing any in-action bikini photos (apart from this quick snap, but I’m not sharing any high quality ones yet) because right now I’m just not 100% comfortable in my body. I haven’t been working out much and my healthy lifestyle habits have been off the radar for the past months. I’m not saying I’m too ‘fat’ or something (goodness, no!). I’m just not happy with where I am right now and I want to work on that. So my goal is to get back in shape so I can share some Triangl bikini photos next spring (I’m actually writing this down on my ‘goals’ list, so – no, I will not eventually forget this promise). Who knows I will have some more pieces to share by then, because there’s actually four more Triangl bikinis that I would REALLY like to have in my life! I would actually love to write a full sizing guide (with pictures!) on all available styles for the girlies who share my cup size!
* My European cup size is 75D, which translates into different sizes in other countries. So I’m a 75D in Europe, China, Japan, Hong Kong and Korea. 12C in Australia. 34C in USA. 34D in UK and India. And a 90D in France Spain and Belgium. This is according to this bra size chart.
What are your doubts with Triangl sizing? I’d be happy to help you out a bit!
