Swimwear Saturday: Tatyana/Beach Bash Retro Bikini

Out of all of my retro based swimwear, this may be my least favorite...which is a total bummer!  I got it from Zulily (brand Tatyana or Beach Bash).  I'm familiar with the brand as I have several clothing items from them, but I had yet to make a swimwear purchase.  I love the print and coloring of this suit and the price was ridiculously low, so there wasn't much to lose.  That said, something is...off...about the fit that I just can't put my finger on.  I remember when I first wore this to a hot tub party at a girlfriend's house in the spring and looking at the "outfit" photo a friend snapped of me in it and being slightly perplexed.  It looked okay, but it also didn't look the way I thought it did.  And I'm pretty sure it had nothing to do with me and how I looked.  I own other high waisted two pieces, so I'm used to how your figure slightly changes in those kinds of swimwear.  I don't know though, something about this is a smidge off...though still not a bad suit and completely wearable!  Just being candid that it's not my favorite cut!

Beach Bash (label)

What I like about this suit:
The print is amazing and feels authentically vintage.  

Quality Control:
It's sturdy and good material.  It covers everything while not covering too much.

Problem Areas:
There is underwire, but it's not as lifting or supportive as I'd like it to be.  I still feel smushed in a bit.   As I said, something about this isn't as flattering as I'd like either.  I really wish I could pinpoint why.

  1. You look adorable! How fun are your shades? And I do like the print on that suit a lot, and I love the ruffly top! Is it maybe that the bottom of the bottoms are cut higher than other high-waisted bikinis? That was the only thing I could come up with on why you may feel it's a bit off. I think you look great! Also, that pool area looks awesome!

    Hope all is well!


  2. Cutie! It looks great on you & I love that hair flower so much! :)

  3. The print looks great! Too bad it didn't fit like how you wanted it to. The downside of shopping online I guess. Nonetheless, you look amazing in it! :)
