okay, sorry not sorry if you’re annoyed by all the beachy/vacation pics i’ve been posting recently. this was the first trip i’ve ever had to do blog work on (sis & i jokingly called it “a production”) and i loved getting to create such fun content for you. so just be prepared to see beautiful beachiness for the next month! 😛
i knew i wanted to get a few new bikinis for this trip, but didn’t want to break the bank. i’m also kinda over spending $35+ on trendy, mediocre quality suits that are only “IN” for that season. ya feel me? i usually hate buying a bunch of fast fashion pieces because i know how bad it affects the environment, but that’s a conversation for a different blog post.
so i decided to go out on a limb and grab a few suits from RomWe (ya know, one of those super cheap clothing sites where there’s like nothing over $30?). i’ve purchased from & worked with Romwe before so i knew that you had to be picky about what you bought in order to get something with good quality. and let me tell you how PLEASANTLY SURPRISED I WAS.
i ordered 3 suits with pretty different styles, and was kinda shocked when (based on the given measurements) i ordered mediums in all of them. typically i would’ve gone for a large, because normally their stuff runs small. so SIZING GETS AN A+ from me.
quality was also a big contributing factor to how pleased i was with these suits. the material felt nice on all of them and the construction (seams and stitching) was pretty good, too! the only complaint i have is that the zipper top wasn’t lined so it was a little itchy where the zipper was inside, but not enough to not want to wear it, if that makes sense.
MAY 2020 UPDATE: these bikinis are now sold out, so i have linked to similar styles where possible. i’ve purchased more suits from RomWe since writing this post and have been in love with all of them!
okay, overall thoughts on each suit:
STRIPED STRAP BIKINI
$12 – comes in black, red & orange
my favorite of all three, but if you have a larger chest this top may not work for you. the top isn’t very long which is fine for the queen of the IBTC, but probably not for you busty babes. LOVE the straps on this suit. they are so thick and don’t stretch out! DOUBLE LOVE these bottoms. so freakin comfy, high waisted & full coverage.
ZIPPER FRONT BIKINI
$10 – comes in black & maroon
love this little sporty option. i’ll probably be sporting this one more to the lake rather than the pool or beach. i was very surprised that the zipper stayed UP the whole time i wore it. the bottoms that come with this, however, are prettttyyyyy cheeky so beware if that’s not your thing. i didn’t end up wearing this set on my trip because it was, well, a family trip. 😉
POLKA DOT RUFFLE BIKINI
$12 – black & white polka dots
i ADORED this suit & got so many compliments on it the day i wore it. the bottoms are SO high waisted, which i love, but are still cute and cheeky. 😉 i will say the top was a little big for me, but i wouldn’t worry about it if you have a chest bigger than mine.
with sizing, style, fit and quality all in mind, i’d give my RomWe bikinis a 7/10. they’ll last you a couple seasons and you’ll be a TOTAL BABE the entire time!
