My New Victoria's Secret Swim Suits!

I just ordered a few more bikini swim suits from Victoria's Secret.  I needed some more to just have, but also wanted to get some new ones for my upcoming trip in a couple weeks.  They are having some pretty good sales, so I picked up 3 sets.  I actually really like them so I think I am keeping them all!

The first one is the Sequin Stripe bikini top & bottom.  This actually might be my favorite set, and definitely my husband's.  I think the sailor look is super cute, and the navy stripes are sequined so it kind of glams it up a little.  The style is very simple basic triangle top and string bottoms.  It's probably the best style to lay out because it will allow more areas of the skin to get tan.  I think it will be good for Greece since these are the Greek flag colors haha.



And this is what it looks like on me:  Posting bikini pic of myself right after the VS model to boost my self-esteem apparently.  And don't mind my tan lines!  Been wearing different suits while laying out.  Probably not the smartest idea.






I like this set because it's different looking.  I like the gold on white, and the pop of bright coral pink color on the bottom band.  This set is super cheap right now at $30 for both!  The top is padded and the neck strap is removable.

And here it is on moi.  The bottom is rather low rise on the front.



And lastly, I got a hot pink set.  The color is called "berry gloss".  I actually got 2 different tops to try on.  I think I will go with this Daily Push-up top.  It's padded as well, and you can adjust the tightness of the neck strap.  


I got a different bottom to go with this though.  I like how Victoria's Secret lets you mismatch different styles and colors.



Here's the other top I got with it:  the Belle bandeau top.  I actually really like bandeau style bikini tops, and think it's great that the neck strap is removable.  But I think I am going to return this one and keep the push-up one instead since the Gold Coral set is a bandeau style, and I also have another set that is bandeau style as well.  But if I didn't, these 2 would really be a draw.





I bought all of these in size XS, except the Gold Coral bikini bottoms.  I'm glad I didn't because those are not very stretchy or adjustable due to the metal straps on the hips.  The rest all fit well.  I find that you should always size down with items from Victoria's Secret.  For example, I usually buy size S everywhere except a few brands where I buy size XS.

I think I am now bikini ready for vacation!  I will be in Greece for about 8 days so I am bringing one suit per day.  =D

  1. Did you size down in your tops as well? I just bought the daisy one and I'm contemplating on exchanging.

    1. I did but I think both size XS and S could work for me. It depends on your cup size. If you are more than a B cup I say stay with your normal size.

  8. I bought that same berry gloss bikini but in the triangle top! I love the color. the small bottom is fine BUT I ordered a M tho per the size chart (32C) and it's bordering on obscene I'd recommend sizing UP on tops
