I had a rather difficult time purchasing bikinis at a brick and mortar shop in the middle of a Canadian winter for my beach vacation. There were just limited options and so somehow I ended up purchasing nearly all of the bikinis from Amazon Canada that had a Prime shipping option.
I purchased them all because I was pleasantly surprised that Amazon accepted returns on bikinis. I can confirm that those bikinis that I did decide to keep were returned with no issues. I will be comparing the bikinis that I purchased from Amazon to the original model photos and giving them a ranking out of 10. Of course, there are some bikinis that are better fitted for certain body types, but I think it would at least be helpful to see the bikinis on a regular non-model and non-airbrushed photo. As a side note, I am roughly 5’2, 115lbs. I’m going from best to hilarious.
I was initially really worried about this one because of the wide chest opening and seemingly lack
I really liked the floral print bottom and think it can be mixed and matched with other tops. Just a note that this one takes an extra minute to figure out how to put on. It is not all that straight-forward, but once it is on, it is also very stiff and held together well. 10/10
The metal clasp behind this one is really high quality. I’ve had a bad experience with a plastic clasp breaking, which ended up with me flashing an entire pool of people. So I guess it was reassuring to see a nice slide and lock clasp (similar to what is typically on a front fastening bra). I think that this bikini would look better on someone with a more athletic and toned body. 9/10
I really like the feminine style of this one and think it can also be worn as a shirt, if you’re okay with getting out a full bathing suit
I cannot move my arms in this top. So if you’re okay with not being able to move your arms, it does have a nice ruffle. This one is definitely not for me though. I like to move my arms. I also think the bottom is not at all flattering and I feel fat in places I didn’t think I’d feel fat in. 4/10
I call this one The Flamingo for obvious reasons. The colour is beautiful, but the ruffles on this one are too much and it doesn’t fall nicely like in the photo. The actual suit material looks to be stiffer than the suit on the model and so it doesn’t. I feel like an idiot in this swimsuit and I don’t dig the high waist. The colour is still vibrant though and the material is still nice. 4/10
Ordering bikinis and swimsuits from Amazon was such a great experience. While not all styles are available on Prime shipping at all times, it was certainly convenient to order swim wear from Amazon and have it delivered straight to my door. It eases my mind that the return process was easy and straight-forward. I was really impressed overall with the high quality of the swim suits. Each of these swim suits were less than $100 and around the rough range of $30-$60. I would highly recommend trying on swim suits from Amazon.
