Review: Doreanse Bikini – Afrika
I know I said I’ve added more thongs to review, but starting the year off with a bikini review. I need more prints in my underwear drawer, so I went all in with this one. I think of African tribal with this colorful print, which is probably where it gets the name Afrika. This is a good step away from my typical solid colors and animal prints. Though I guess in my defensive that is what is offered to us a good portion of the time. Hopefully I can continue adding some bold colorful prints to the drawer. Doreanse is a brand I’ve been working on testing out a variety of their styles with them being a pretty reasonably priced brand. I also found I liked the feel of their modal fabric blend based on the first pair I tried of theirs.
The Afrika bikini sticks with the same fabric as others I’ve tried with a 45% modal, 45% cotton, 10% lycra blend. I’ve found the fabric to be a nice soft comfortable option for underwear. As with other Doreanse styles I’ve tried the pouches run a bit smaller than most other brands I’ve tried. This is especially so in the sack region. For me they still fit well and hold me in place. The pouch does feature the center seam and I’d call it a full front cut. The back I would also categorize it into the full backs. Then the sides measure around 1 1/2”. The bikini can be machined wash, but does not recommend the drier.
Overall these are a comfortable bikini to wear. I wouldn’t say anything in particular stands out with them. They would be a great everyday underwear option and are reasonably priced. I haven’t noticed this particular print being still available in the bikini cut, but they offer other prints in the bikini style. If you’re looking to add prints to your drawer like me then I’d say give a pair of theirs a try. I definitely would add another pair to get some more prints in my underwear drawer.
