Review: Daniel Alexander Brazilian String Bikini DA608

Daniel Alexander Brazilian String Bikini DA608

Well, after writing this and having it ready to post I discovered this model is not available anymore. However they have models similar to it, so I decided to post it anyway. I normally don’t do half backish styles, since they do not like to stay in place. Since I like other Daniel Alexander pairs, I decided to give this Brazilian back string bikini from them a try. I am a sucker for the string bikini style.

A quick look at some specs of this bikini. It is made of a blend of 86% polyamide and 14% spandex. The pair has a center seamed contour pouch. The back is a skimpy cut. The sides measure in at about 3/8″. These are recommended to be hand washed and hung to dry.

When I bought this pair I was not expecting the back to stay in place. I was right on correct with that thought. My plan anyhow was to wear it as a cheeky thong, which I do with other similar pairs if they are comfortable that way. I like the pouch coverage and the skinny sides. Now I bought this pair in my normal size. I think I should have sized it down. To get the fit I want I have to pull the sides up on my hips, but they don’t stay there well enough plus still not quite the hold I want for my package. I do find the back comfortable as a cheeky thong.

I wouldn’t recommend this one as a bikini. The back isn’t going to stay put. It will be a creeper. Now if you want a cheeky thong like pair then this is a potential one to look into. I’ll pull it out of the drawer some. I may try to pick it up in a size smaller in a current similar model if I see a good deal on one. Or maybe even alter this one. I’m thinking the fit will be more to my snugger liking with a tighter waistband. If it ends up being a better fit, I could see myself pulling it out more often. I do like the fabric of my Daniel Alexander pairs.

My Rating Overview

Support Rating: 4.0
Overall Comfort: 5.0
Recommendation: No thongs up

Pros: Comfy if want more a cheeky thong
Cons: Back doesn’t stay in place, waist in my normal size is too loose

    I personally like the Daniel Alexander Brazilian back low cut strings. You are correct in sizing down and also correct best as a cheeky thong but I like the cut and comfort. I have purchased several styles of DA g strings, bikinis and string bikinis but only on sale.

    I was a fan of Daniel Alexander underwear/swimwear for many years but reluctantly had to stop buying their garments when customs and postal taxes made them uneconomical. Luckily I still have a good selection of their g-strings and a few Brazilian half back string swim bikinis which are very similar to the one being reviewed here. Before posting this comment, I put on one of the bikinis to compare it with Nate’s comments. I agree about the waistband being a little loose, although I prefer that to some of the super tight waistbands of other brands. Like most half backs, it doesn’t tend to stay in place, but who doesn’t like a flash of butt? lol. I always pack one of these bikinis when I go on holiday, and even if I’m going to the nudist zone I put one in my bag should the need arise to wear one.
    A great review as always, but am I the only one who wishes Nate had hired the model from his previous post to show this one off?

    They look nice, I like the nylon fabric too, too bad they won’t fit me. I don’t think D.A. makes anything above a 40″ waist. Not crazy about the logo on the pouch, but I like the styling and the string sides. Maybe someday I will get to try it before it gets discontinued.

    These look a lot like a style Cover Male offered in 2015/16. They were made from polyester/Lycra, not polyamide, if I remember correctly.

    If yours are anything like the CM ones I had, I agree about the rear being too narrow to stay in place, but were not too bad otherwise.

    As for altering to fit better, I’d recommend doing it since it’s just a matter of adjusting the waist in your case. Nothing really lost if they still don’t stay in place, and you’ve got a comfortable bikini if the alteration works. I’ve altered some recent purchases and it made a great difference to the comfort. No extra cost either, since it just meant a bit of elastic removed.

      They probably are very similar. I think CM and DA are owned by the same company. They have pretty similar cuts. I think it is like the car industry. They offer the same style, but with different names on it.

      Definitely leaning towards taking some out of the waistband, since string sides are easier to alter.

    Never been a fan of Daniel Alexander, the fit nor the fabric blends…

    Even I am fan of Daniel Alexander mens underwear brand. Coincidentally I also have DA608, but in different color. Since this articles mentioned that this model is not available, I would like to highlight that I bought it from here:

    • The Bottom Drawer says:

      I technically got mine from them too, but off eBay. They actually show them out of stock, so I think that means they are being discontinued in the particular model. They do have ones very similar available.

    I love D/A designs, really, a whole lot. And I own several. The thing is, as great as they are I don’t own many, and I would by so many more but for one little problem: Their logo. Its not like its a global prestige brand that would be universally recognized, or declare a certain status of its owner or anything. I just don’t want it sitting right in front, often right on the part that holds my bits. I frankly am not a billboard, and if I were I’d be getting paid for the signage on me. Give me plain, please, D/A, and I’ll by ALL of your stuff in multiple colors. Which bring up the other tiny beef: the colors are pretty limited, and some are just odd. I know its expensive to do more colors, but if I don’t like the color, and the biggie-sized logo, we can’t do business. At all.
