On a very gloomy day, a few weeks back, I was pleasantly surprised by an e-mail from the Triangl girls, who had seen my Instagram and wanted to send me a bikini. Triangl is definitely the bikini royalty in the blogosphere and on the internet in general, so I jumped at the chance and picked the Milly Santa Rosa Splash bikini in pastel blue. I've been getting a lot of questions regarding the sizing and the bikini in general, so I thought I could do a post on it.
It took me ages to decide on which size I should go for, as I'm usually good for both XS and S, however it is a neoprene bikini, meaning that there is very little stretch. I consulted the live help on the Triangl website and they were really kind and forthcoming with helping me out. I went for an S bikini bottom which fits me perfectly. They always tell you to size up for the Triangl bikini bottoms for the limited stretch, however I took the size I would normally have gone for.
I was really unsure about the bikini top sizing, because the Milly bikini is rather new (I think), so there weren't too many reviews that talked about the size. Based on a recent store fitting I'm a 32B, so the Triangl live chat girl suggested me to go for an XS, however once the bikini arrived, I realised I should have gone for an S. It's not way too small, however it would definitely have been more comfortable with an S. If you are inbetween two sizes for the top, I would suggest for you to take the bigger one!
The bikini itself is of very high quality (hence the price), and it seems like every little detail has been thought of. The bra straps are an incredibly soft elastic material, even the inside labels are made very soft, so all in all the bikini is very skin friendly. I did, at first, feel weirded out by the neoprene material, however it is something you easily get used to. All in all, I am incredibly happy with the bikini and would love to get it in other colors too. The only downside of the Milly is that you don't get a bikini bag, like most of the other Triangl bikinis do.
