Looking back at these beach photos makes my heart ache a little (especially since I’m writing this on my sofa while wrapped in a faux fur throw and wearing a flannel pajama set…). Sigh. Anyways, during our vacation in Costa Rica, I had a chance to try out a bright and bold bikini from Aussie swimwear brand Triangl. After months of admiring their ridiculously gorgeous Instagram feed and the collection of stylish and sleek suits featured – I was excited to pick one out for myself. I decided on The Milly (one of their most popular styles) in an electric blue called “Santa Rosa Splash” and it arrived just in time for my vacation.
On multiple occasions during our trip, we got a little adventurous and hiked over some crazy rock formations to find hidden white sand beaches. Luckily, these suits stay in place (no riding up or shifting around on your bum) and they don’t get clingy or baggy when wet. Perfect for the rare occasion when you aren’t just lounging in the sand. Since Triangl bikinis are made from neoprene, they boast the same benefits as wetsuits: they’re structured, quick-drying and fit like a second skin – all reasons why this became my go-to suit in Costa Rica. Plus, you can’t beat the ultra-flattering cut and sleek black piping! I even pretended like the neoprene automatically granted surfing skills, too. If you’re new to Triangl, check out their collection of bikini sets (I’ve got my eye on this one and this one) and try one out for yourself.
