Review: Kiniki Riviera Swim Brief
I’ve been buying from Kiniki’s for many years now. They’re one of a few online places I found when I first got into bikinis and thongs. For some reason I hadn’t bought from them in a while, so I finally hit them up and got some new gear from them. I thought I’d start with the swim brief with it being summer. This is the third swim bikini I bought from them. I have their Amazon swim tanga in lime, which you can see here. I also have a half back from them called Cobra that they no longer have, so I never reviewed it. Though I believe there is a photo in a past blog post of me in it. This is my favorite of the three I’ve tried so far.
Ok, on with the review of my new swim bikini brief from Kiniki called Riviera. I decided on this one because it stated a 3/4 back. Plus it looks sexy while I still feel like it is appropriate for any beach. When I first slipped the bikini on, I fell in love with them. I really like how they fit. They’re a snug fit, so should be no problem keeping them on. They do have a drawstring with plastic on the ends for extra security. For me I think they are the perfect cut. The right amount of coverage all the way around. Nice narrow sides at around 1 1/2″, so shows off the legs and no restriction on the thighs. You get to show a little of the cheeks with the 3/4 back. Then the front pouch is what I’ll call a moderate pouch with it not being too full.
The pouch does have a lining of mesh looking fabric. It is also a center seamed pouch. You get the hump look with this pouch instead of the outline of your privates. I think that is a good thing to have with a swim brief to make it family beach appropriate in my opinion. The fabric is a nylon lycra blend. It kind of reminds me of the material the original Speedo Solar was made of. More stretch to them over the lycra Xtra life they were made of now. The Riviera swim brief is recommended to be hand wash warm and hung to dry. One thing I don’t like about some of Kiniki’s stuff is where they put the tag. Like on this swim brief it is sewn into the side of the back. If you don’t pay attention it could be hanging out there.
Even though I don’t need them, I’m tempted to get the other colors, which at the moment are black, lemon, and white. Probably would only be able to brave wearing the black one to a beach though. I think this is a pretty solid swim bikini brief especially for the price. I might at least add the black one next time I make an order from Kiniki.
