Review of the SugarShape Ahoi Bikini!

This post was written by Laura, a contributing blogger for Thin and Curvy. If you missed her intro post, look no further!


Hello, lovely readers! It's been awhile, hasn't it? My bad. Work, still, has been driving me pretty nuts. However, one of the things I do best when I'm stressed is shop online. That's how I ended up caving to temptation and grabbing myself the SugarShape Ahoi Bikini Top and Ahoi High-Waisted Bottom I mentioned in my Summer Wishlist!

Ahoi, matey! ... get it? I am so funny. I am the funniest. 
This will have to be a mini-review of sorts, since I didn't want to nag my roommate into taking a billion pictures for me.

The top: I ordered the top in 85/110, which tends to be my normal SugarShape size (I regularly wear a 34HH in UK sizing). It fits really well! My left boob tries to sneak out a bit, but my left boob has always been a rebel. The straps are very thin, yet still extremely comfortable. It is a relief to find a cute bikini for full busts that isn't a halter-top! I hate halter-tops because I think they're exceptionally painful. I personally don't understand how someone thinks it's a good idea to make someone's neck support really big boobs... but I digress. This top is adorable and I love it.

The bottoms: These may be the best-fitting, most comfortable swim bottoms I've ever owned. They don't give me wedgies, I can adjust where I want them to sit, and the ties on the side are simply adorable. I wear a size 12/14 bottoms in U.S. sizing, and I ordered a size 115 in these bottoms.

If you don't mind taking the price plunge (shipping to the U.S. can get pricey), I highly recommend giving SugarShape's swim line a try. Their customer service is totally on point and I love working with them!

If you want to order something from SugarShape and you live in the U.S., email She'll take good care of you. :)
