Kireina Bikini Review


Gisele Top in Wine - Size Small
Gisele Bottom in Wine - Size Medium

I recently came across this new cheeky bikini brand Kireina Bikini and knew I
 had to give them a try! Plus, I love this deeper red "wine" color which is also 
perfect to wear for the 4th of July.

Check out my Instagram for even more pics in this Kireina Bikini - @stylingchaos


Kireina Bikinis come in three sizes (small, medium, large) and they show their 
model online in a size small. I knew based on her measurements that a small top 
would be a great fit. When it arrived I loved the high quality of the back clasp and 
adjustable shoulder straps. I also love that this top has skinny straps making 
the tan lines very minimal on my shoulders. The actual band that goes around is 
also nice and thick material that doesn't feel like it will stretch out. I 
seriously love how the top fits. 

I decided to go with a size medium in the bottoms for a couple of different 
reasons. It ended up being a perfect fit and the double layered fabric 
is extremely comfortable. 

1. When a brand talks about their bottoms being cheeky I usually size up no 
matter what. This provides a bit more coverage while still being extremely cheeky. 
2. I do not have any bikinis right now with the thin side traps on the bottoms (shocking I know) 
and did not want those cutting in too tightly on my hips. 
3. I also noticed that these bottoms sit very low on the model and wanted to 
have the option of a bit more of a higher placement on my hips. 


Currently Kireina is only shipping within Europe. 


Before you order here are a couple of things to keep in mind:
- The top does not have padding, or even an option for padding (which I prefer) but 
something to keep in mind if you are a padding lover
- All Kireina Bikinis are hand-made and you can tell by their amazing quality!!
- The bottoms have a seamless finish making them extremely comfortable 
especially if you are spending a full day out in the sun
- All styles are made with limited pieces so be aware that certain colors or 
styles could sell out or become unavailable

Salty Mermaid Swim Review

A couple months ago I came across this Florida based bikini brand - Salty Mermaid Swim and instantly fell for their vibrant colors and flattering cuts. With a little more investigation I found out that they also give $10 on every purchase to the rainforests of Brazil! Bikini's that not only look good but do good for the world are my favorite! I just had to get my hands on some Salty Mermaid Swim so I went with the MERBABE + PINEAPPLE sets.

TOP - One size // BOTTOM - Medium
I love the versatility of this MERBABE top! Pictured I am wearing the straps off my shoulders and the bottom tied. This top is extremely versatile and can be worn on the shoulders with or without the bottom knot tied as well. Since this top is only available in one size I was curious to see how it would fit and was pleasantly surprised to see that, with the tie of the knot, it can really fit a wide range of sizes. I hate bikini tops with padding so I was happy to see that this did not have padding and was double layered on the front making it very comfortable for all day wear. The bottoms fit like a glove and are extremely flattering. They also have a seamless waistband making them just as comfortable as the top. I would say the bottoms run a little small and I am glad that I went with a size medium. 

TOP - Small // BOTTOM - Medium
When I saw the Salty Mermaid Swim PINEAPPLE bikini I knew I had to have it. I have been looking for a bikini with pineapples on it for a couple of years now and this one is perfect. It's triangle top is a classic cut with a fun twist on the back with an adjustable/removable fringe option. Another great thing about this bikini is that the top and back straps have adjustable clasps instead of long tie strings. I think this is great because the extra tied strings take forever to dry and are extremely uncomfortable when sitting/laying on the beach. Both the top and bottom are double layered with lime green material to match the top's straps so there is no chance of anything showing through when this bikini is wet. WIN. The bottoms are an extremely cheeky and flattering cut. They are seamless which I love and that makes them extra comfortable for a long day of wear. 

I would recommend ordering your normal top size and going a size up on the bottoms for a more relaxed and comfortable fit. Most of the bottoms are a cheeky cut so going up a size will provide a bit more coverage without compromising a flawless fit.

Marysia x Bikini.com Review

Some exciting news - I have joined forces with bikini.com as a brand ambassador! As part of the #realbikinibabe squad I received this epic BIKINI T-shirt and let me tell you it is incredibly soft! A perfect T that can be worn 24/7 - on and off the beach. One of the perks of joining the #realbikinibabe squad is the inside scoop on the newest launches and collabs available to share with YOU! Bikini.com also sells some of my favorite bikini brands including Marysia (wearing bottoms in the shot above)! You can check out all the Marysia Swim bikini pics on my IG @stylingchaos.

(size medium)
I went with a size medium in this top because the straight across style can sometimes cut in weird way on me, so I figured it would be better to try a medium. I am glad that I did because the front of this bikini is a perfect fit (height wise for desired coverage)! The quality of this, and all, Marysia bikinis is amazing and I highly recommend them as an investment piece that will last you years to come! A couple notes on this top - The back is a gold clasp that is not adjustable. It was a little loose on me so I actually took it in on each side to create my preferred snug fit. If you have a larger bust size but a small frame I recommend buying a size up and then taking in for a custom fit! 

(size medium)
I also went with a size medium in these Marysia bottoms. I have found from my online research that Marysia pieces run small so if you are purchasing your first pair I recommend considering sizing up. I love the scalloped edges on these bottoms and these are my go-to bottoms when I am in a more conservative beach setting since they are full coverage! They are a comfortable fit and do not cut in on the but which is a huge plus.
