With the summer holidays right around the corner and the prospect of sunnier climes back on the agenda, it is time to think about updating your summer wardrobe. As I didn’t do a single update last year, due to Covid, I was extremely happy to be able to review the Cassie bikini from Anita.com.
Anita.com are a long-established brand, originating from Germany in 1886. They now supply products all over the world. Before the items arrived, I took a look at the website to see that the Company produces cup sized mix and match swimwear in their Rosa Faia range, so clothing much more suited to those with different size tops to their bottoms, or needing more support. Swimwear styles include wired and non wired swimsuits, tankinis and Bikinis in sizes ranging from 30 – 42 C – I, so basically something to suit everyone and I couldn’t wait for mine to arrive.
The bikini arrived very fast and the first thing I noticed was the stunning design. Suitable for any age the Vintage Blue Cassie bikini has a striking floral print with pink and orange flowers on a dark blue and black spotted background. Not only does it look good it hides some of those lumps and bumps we all have!
I am normally a 34” bra size but find a 32” better in a bikini as the back can slacken off when wet, I rushed to put the top on and it fitted perfectly, I was very excited to get such a great fit so couldn’t wait to try the bottoms. I find bikini bottoms difficult to get right as you need a bit more coverage as you get older but still want to look up to date, but these were perfect too. High waisted enough to give coverage they have adjustable sides which you secure with a drawstring and tie off with a bow, this means you can suit yourself with a deeper bottom or draw the string to its tightest for a smaller tan line or to show off good legs. I’m normally a 12-14 depending on style and these, in size 12, were a great fit on me, so are probably on the more generous size of 12.
The top is underwired so gives great support and I found the plunge neckline to give me a nice cleavage but still kept me feeling really secure. The straps can come off if you prefer a bandeau style top, it’s a little fiddly, but simple to do. They are also adjustable so you can slide to fit you as you would a bra strap ensuring the optimum fit.
I couldn’t be more happy with the Rosa Faia Cassie bikini, it’s pretty, supportive, has a striking design and is comfortable to wear. They aren’t the cheapest with a RRP at £125.00, although normally you can find them a bit cheaper through a stockist, but the quality shines through. So, if you are thinking of updating your summer wardrobe this year make Anita.com your first port of call.
