I especially love seeing Freja in it - totally made for skinny girls! :luv: Although I think one-piece swimsuits in general can only look great on skinny girls, whereas the right bikini is easier for a slim/fit girl to pull off.

Also, you in one of those bandage swimsuits... :bow:
:oops: Aw, thank you! :kiss:

Also, I totally agree - bandage + fleshy = NO!

Okay, I know this is an old thread, but it's nearly swim suit season again! I was thinking about getting one of the Triangl bikinis but I don't know how their sizes are. Do you know if they run small or not? And do you have any other suggestions where I can find really cute bikinis that are interesting and are good quality? The last thing I want is a boring, bad quality swim suit that everyone and their mother owns.

I like the billie firefly one, but I'm not so sure about the bottoms. The top looks lovely though. :luv:

I agree. If I end up getting a Triangl bikini I'll update you girls on the sizing.

Reviving an old thread... It's almost bikini season in the northern hemisphere again! Does anyone know any good brands for small busts. The stores near me don't stock anything I like and I'm afraid I'll get the sizing wrong online. I'm really quite flat-chested so it's an issue (my underbust is 27" and around my boobs it's about 29" if anyone has similar measurements!)

I am about those measurements.. It is really hard to find bikini tops! I stick with bandeau tops only because triangle tops just look foolish.
H & M size 2 tops are TINY.. like, they barely fit me. I thought maybe they were geared toward children :lol: Size 2 & 4 you will have some luck with the fit. Also, VS has a limited number of tops I can wear. Last year I bought this twist bandeau top:

in a 32A and it almost fits perfectly (I have to put it on the tightest notch)

I'm thinking I will probably buy another one this year in both black and white.

Other ones I've had luck with in the past are bandeaus that tie in the back (even though the ties are annoying because you can't lay down comfortably).. That way you can make them as tight as you need.

Thanks this helped a lot! And I love that bandeau!

I am in need, however, of an Hervé Léger bandage swimsuit...!


:luv:
I have a Tangerine one piece by Hervé Léger and it is SO gorgeous on. Not entirely practical for swimming in, but ideal for elegant pool lounging

I was sent the Ollie - Twiggie Stardust set in an XS and they fit really nicely. If anything I think they might run a little small, but not much at all. Also, it looks far less shiny in reality, much more of a matte black :)

Hey all! Sorry for updating a super old thread but I thought that making a thread just for one brand wouldn't be the best move. I know it's still mid- February but I need a good swimsuit for castings/ a cute one for the upcoming beach season. I love Triangl's bikini's but I'm so unsure of sizing. Anyways I wanted opinions on styles/ colors/ what you think this one girls size is? Here's their sizing:

I think this one would be my go to casting swimsuit since it's very simple and looks so cute on her despite her being nearly flat chested (which I very much am). (Velvet)

Screen Shot 2018-02-16 at 4.12.07 PM.png

But I also liked this one because it's also simple and also flattering but not a style I usually gravitate towards. (Velvet)

Loved that first style so much I'm considering it in another color as a regular swimsuit. (Both Velvet)

Screen Shot 2018-02-16 at 4.09.16 PM.png

Not interested in this one really but she's just so stunning makes the bikinis look so good. :bow: (Textured, but *not* Velvet)

Screen Shot 2018-02-16 at 4.07.00 PM.png

I'm interested in the one all the way to the right. (Velvet)

Screen Shot 2018-02-16 at 4.06.40 PM.png

Interested in the one in the middle. (Ribbed, not Velvet)

Screen Shot 2018-02-16 at 4.05.36 PM.png

Super blurry (sorry) but here's a different style (I kind of feels it looks like too much of a cup for someone who has a very small chest, let me know if you agree, but it's a similar style to the pink and orange one I posted a few pictures back). (Regular swimsuit texture)
Thank you all so much!

I definitely like the first three bikinis the most! Love the fact that the fabric is velvet. Makes those simple bikinis look interesting. I don’t know if yellow bikinis are suitable for castings, but imo the style of the triangl bikinis looks very suitable for castings (esp the marine blue velvet ones). I’m not sure about sizes on this girl, she could be XS or S (bust) and the bottom could be S or M? Please do correct me if you guys think otherwise :grin:

Thank you so much! Triangl doesn’t really vanity size (I think) so they even have xxs which is a true size 0 for bottom/ a cup for the top.

For the first bikini, the top is S and the bottoms are XS (found it on the site). I heard from multiple people that the sizes are 'too small' but I think it's just because they don't vanity-size.

this is a very hard topic for me. being very small chested and fairly thin i spent 3 hours in the mall section in bangkok, which has some of the best shopping in the world, trying to find a bikini that wouldn't make me look like i had a completely flat chest. finally found this from tophsop, the low waisted bottoms look much better in my opinion, and skin that's a bit tanner.

solid and striped is definitely worth the extra penny, they have a variety of classic silhouettes with comfy, yet sturdy fabric. the gia style is my fave for the beach or pool because it highlights the hips/waist in a flattering way and the light blue tone is gorgeous. also keeps the bust held up nicely without making the shoulders blocky!
