Review: Daniel Alexander Bikini (611)
Time 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.
|Recommendation:||One thong up|
Pros: Great support, Forms to you nicely
Cons: Full prices is a bit much for them in my opinion
