I really love Minimale Animale’s designs as a whole and think I made the correct choice choosing them over Triangl (although I’m sure I will cave sometime soon because their designs are stunning too!) But at the moment I think Triangl are more of a ‘trend’ bikini that girls are loving posting on Instagram but aren’t necessarily going to get a lot of wear out of them. The Naomi bikini is really well suited to my body because I have a big juicy peach bum but aren’t very well endowed in the boobie area. The high waisted pants compliment my hourglass figure really well and make my legs look even longer than they already are! I really like the thick straps on the top as sometimes high street bikinis can be incredibly flimsy with straps popping off or coming loose left, right and centre. The bikini feels excellent on and incredibly sturdy so I’m sure it will last me well on my month long Thailand excavation!
Increasingly designer bikini and swim wear is making its way onto the market. Most notable of these from fashion bloggers is the emergence of brands Minimale Animale and Triangl. My summer holiday does’t take off from Manchester until the 22nd August when I’ll be flying to Doha and then Bangkok, Thailand. So naturally I’m stocking up on summer clothes for the beach and the hot city. I did want to treat myself to a lovely new bikini for my travels. One that would withstand my outrageous love for the salty ocean, one that wouldn’t fray and go all ‘bobbly’ (I’m sure you know what I mean) around the bum, and one that fit as well as VS underwear does. I originally leant towards a Triangl bikini (even though they do retail at 100£ and I’m betting most of you won’t be buying an underwear set that expensive any time soon). But Minimale Animale had been my favourite over Triangl yet their prices really are extortionate! However, this gorgeous piece was on offer at NastyGal! It should have been £105 at Nasty Gal but was reduced to £52! What a bargain, the sale price was around half the price of the Triangl bikini I was looking at plus it’s RRP is dearer meaning more value for my money!
All in all I’m pretty sure these new designer swimwear ranges are here to stay, certainly Minimale Animale is as their products are not only fantastically cute but they fit well and are of an incredibly high quality. I can’t wait to see what new designs they bring out and what other bikini company is going to take off!
What do you think of Minimale Animale or designer swim wear in general?
