Review: Daniel Alexander Bikini (611)

Daniel Alexander Bikini 611Time for another Daniel Alexander review. I’ve had this 611 Bikini sitting around for a long time now. I’ve found I like the 86% polyamide and 14% spandex blend of the fabrics they use on the pairs I’ve tried. It has the feel of swimsuit fabric, but is lighter weight making it a good choice for underwear. The fabric molds to you without feeling restrictive. The support of them are excellent and I feel I could wear them for something like running. Haven’t done anything real active with them. They did perform well with a pretty busy day of moving around. Overall I’m happy with how they have been performing.

The bikini has a center seam contour pouch. The coverage of it is probably a little bit more than what I’d call moderate coverage. The back weighs in at about 3/4, so you get so show a little cheek in them. I did feel it may have done some creeping in, but not into a wedgie. Don’t know if they’d creep more if I was actually running in them or not. Then the sides measure about 1 1/2”. The bikini fits pretty well into what I like in a bikini.

Here are some things that don’t really matter to me, but may others. The bikini is recommended to be hand wash and hung to dry. I machine wash them with other clothes and so far so good. I do hang them to dry. The pair I have has a tagless label, which must be heat stamped on. On the outside backside the information is raised up. Those are the only two knocks I see with this pair beside the price. I think full price is too much for the pair. They do seem to be well made, but I don’t feel they fit into the $18 a pair range. For me I’m thinking more the $10 to $12 range, which at times you can find them on sale around there.

My Rating Overview

Support Rating: 5.0
Overall Comfort: 5.0
Recommendation: One thong up

Pros: Great support, Forms to you nicely
Cons: Full prices is a bit much for them in my opinion

    Have to say Daniel Alexander is one of my favourite underwear brands and I particularly like their g-strings, which are available in many bright colours and barely cover the goods. I haven’t bought any of their bikini underwear,but I have two of their half back swim tangas which are very brief and make other swim briefs look like Bermuda shorts(slight exaggeration).Some of their range can be quite pricey,but the quality is good and they are often available at a discount on certain websites. Would definitely say they are worth checking out.

    I don’t own any Daniel Alexander underwear. Any difference between them and Cover Male or Joe Snyder?

      I don’t have any Cover Male yet. It’s probably been 10 years since I have bought from Joe Snyder. If they haven’t changed their fabric then that is what the main difference would be between them and Daniel Alexander. Joe Snyder’s is a heavier weight fabric more along the lines of swimwear. Daniel Alexander is lighter and I feel it is a better choice for underwear. Seems all three have pretty similar styles.
