Triangl Bikini Review

I'm sure many of you lovely ladies have heard of the popular Australian swimwear brand called Triangl that's been blowing up everywhere on social media. Well, I just could't resist getting one or two for myself! I apologize in advance for the awful backdrop I selected for these photos, as I didn't feel very comfortable stepping outside my backyard.

I ended up ordering both the Chloe in Miami Mint(right) &  

I've always had a hard time finding a bikini due to my chest and one that fit properly without little to no padding. I've also been on the hunt for a good bikini for the past few months and when I first started researching this bikini I wasn't able to find any reviews on girls with DD bra size. I got a bit nervous ordering another bathing suit online due to my bad experiences before. Luckily the website has a live chat and the girls are super helpful and can assist you with sizing and style.


So if you can believe it we actually had warm weather in Vancouver this weekend to even put on a swimsuit. Sounds crazy but stepping outside wasn't as bad as I thought. I was brave enough to go outside and show off my new swimsuits before my trip to Mexico this Tuesday - YAY! So excited:-)  

As promised, I wanted to share my experience with Triangl Swimwear. I first purchased the Chloe Miami Mint and fell in love with not only the colour but the fit. I got the XL top and XS bottoms. Unfortunately, the bottoms fit a lot smaller than I thought and had to exchange them for a small. 


I'm not going to lie receiving these was a bit of a hassle due to the wrong size. But, I can't necessarily blame Triangl as I decided to opt for a smaller bottom given that I wasn't sure of the fit.

The good thing is that the initial delivery was super quick and I got my bikini within 3 days, but the exchange took a bit longer. However, I made sure that I gave myself enough time in case of a situation like this. 





Each time you order from Triangl there is a flat $20.00 shipping rate. Also, when you want to do an exchange you need to pay to have it shipped back, which I find pretty standard with it comes to online purchases. I also had to pay $40.00 CAD in duty as I had the bathing suit shipped to my house in Canada. The 2nd time I ordered I ensured that I got it shipped to my family in the states and just went and picked it up with no additional fees. 

I didn't realize how much I would have to pay in duty, so be sure to check before and that way you won't be as shocked as I was. 


The bikinis themselves are amazing quality and are both made out of 100% Neoprene, which is the exact fabric they use for wetsuits. Therefore, you have to be extra careful that you don't fold the bottoms because it will create a permanent crease. 


The last thing I want to mention is that if you are looking for  slightly more coverage definitely go with the Chloe style. Even though they both offer adjustable back and neck ties the Chloe fits slightly bigger - For both bikinis I ordered an XL top and S bottom. 

I hope you ladies found this review helpful! Let me know if any of you have a Triangl bikini and what style or if you plan on purchasing one!

Stay Blissful:-)

    1. Hahaha Jeannette you are too kind! Thanks so much for your kind words. You should definitely look into Triangl if you have a hard time finding a bikini that fits for your top as they fit a lot nicer than most brands. Hopefully you give them a try and if you do let me know which one you ended up going with:-) Thanks so much for stopping by!!

  3. The Chloe in Miami Mint is utterly gorgeous, what a striking colour! I am such a fan of Triangl swimwear and if I find myself last-minute booking any beach holidays anytime soon, I'll definitely be looking in their direction and purchasing! You look so perfect in both of these bikinis and the size guide is really helpful as although I knew I'd be a Small in the bottoms, I was unsure of the bikini top as I am also a DD (although don't look it, unfortunately haha), so thanks for the helpful review! :)

    1. That is so great to hear Gabrielle! I'm glad you found this review helpful. I hope you end up getting one as I know you will look amazing in them. I honesty hate bathing suit shopping because as I mentioned in the post I have such a hard time finding a bathing suit that fits my chest. It can be pretty annoying, as you may know! Let me know if you end up getting one that you really like xoxo

  4. You look great in this bikini! I am going to have to take some workout tips from you:) Glad you found a brand you liked and one that fits. Thank you for the tips on the more coverage bikinis, that is helpful. Also, it's so cool that this is made of neoprene. I am a huge fan of anything neoprene, it feels so weightless.

    2. Thank you Joanna! You are too kind. Glad you found this review helpful:-) I know when I'm looking for bathing suits I tend to do a lot of research especially when purchasing online, which really makes a difference when you have reviews to go off of. At first I wasn't a huge fan of the neoprene because you have to be extra careful that you don't fold the bottoms, but it felt really nice on. Thanks so much for stopping by!

  31. WARNING ABOUT TRIANGL PURCHASES.

    HEAVY DUTIES APPLY to TRIANGL SWIMWEAR and it seems like TRIANGL doesn't clearly want you to be AWARE OF.

    They only statment they make about it is that you have to pay for duties and taxes but in the STOREFRONT they conveniently FORGET to mention that their warehouse is in HONG KONG. They don't ship from within the USA.

    They only mention that their warehouse is in HK in a small typefont in the customer care section under the shipping FAQ.

    That means that if you are a USA Customer you pay 24.9% duty on top of your purchase. FedEx will make sure you pay for that additional tax. And if you are in CANADA you will pay 18%.

    The heading and subheading of the swimwear sold by TRIANGL according to the Harmonized Commodity Description and Coding System is 6112.41.0010 or just 6112.41

    TRIANGL swimwear looks nice, but make sure you are fully aware of the total cost of owning them. Add 24.9% or 18% for USA and CANADIAN customers.

    In my opinion, TRIANGL business practice is unfair and misleads customers.

    ReplyDelete
  32. BEWARE! This company has ZERO customer service... no phone numbers, chat people give you the run around, they say they are sending an email but they don't, then if you finally get to the end of this run around and time wasting they ask you to ship to Hong Kong pay the shipping and then they subtract the original shipping from your purchase! are you kidding me?? you end up owing them money and having no suit at all! I can't stand poor customer service this goes beyond poor into the SCAM category! BEWARE!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Great post! I recently purchased one that resembles the design from Triangl, but for only $11. Check out my post; http://www.wendyta.com/2015/09/optic-white-triangl/

  34. Elizabeth, you mentioned that the second time you ordered you shipped your suit to family in the states...was the duty fee less than when you shipped to Canada? I am debating purchasing a Triangl suit for my upcoming trip to Mexico and don't want to be shocked when I order it and have to pay a large additional fee. Any information is greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    1. Hi! Sorry just seeing the comment now. When I shipped the bathing suit to my family in the states I didn't have to pay duty. It's only when I had it shipped to Canada the 1st time. If you have anymore questions feel free to get in touch with me under the contact tab:-).

  35. Hi! I noticed you didn't post any pics of the bottom of the Lulu---was it a lot smaller in the back? I'm a littler nervous about the coverage on the back- it says small, but I was wondering if you felt like you were falling out of the back on that one?! You look amazing in them!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi Ali! They definitely aren't full coverage and I found them to be a bit smaller than the chloe. I didn't end up wearing the bottoms it came with for the Lulu and instead just purchased a pair from VS that fit better. Hope this helps!

      Delete
  36. Mind if I ask what size pants you wear?/your measurements? So concerned about ordering bottoms! I'm a 4 or 27 and will usually get a medium in any victoria secret bottoms I order... however on the Trianl site they keep telling me to get a small! Such an internal conflict! :/
