I have been a devoted fan of retro inspired fashion ever since it made a comeback on the runway! I have retro dresses, pants, shirts, shoes, and of course, swimwear. Even though I already had a ton of bathing suits, I wanted to get another one that really showed off my own personal style, flair, and fashion. I came across the Cocoship vintage blue stripe high-waisted bikini on Amazon and immediately fell in bikini love.
The Cocoship vintage swimsuit is a two piece swimsuit that comes in small to XL sizes. It is made from cotton and spandex. The spandex really helps hug your curves and allows you to show off your best beach assets. The Cocoship vintage swimsuit is high-waisted. This is perfect for those of us women who have a little tummy that they would prefer to hide on the beach or at the pool. It’s also perfect for those of us women who have hips they’d like to visually minimize.
The bikini top is perfect for practically any breast size and provides full coverage. The Cocoship vintage swimsuit is flattering to all body types. Whether you’re a skinny Minnie or a curvaceous cutie, you can be sure that you will feel sexy and beautiful in this adorable swimsuit.
Besides feeling absolutely wonderful in this swimsuit, I found that it was very comfortable for wearing all day at the beach or the pool. Some bathing suits tend to cause skin irritation from the elastic bands grinding into the skin of the body. Not this one! It is loose fitting in all the right areas and tight fitting in all the right areas. It helped me show off the very best parts of my body while trying to hide all the parts of my body I may be a bit insecure about.
The Cocoship retro vintage high waisted 2 piece bikini also is less expensive than other retro bathing suits that I have bought or have seen sold on Amazon and in stores. I got this swimsuit for less than $20.00. However, be aware that larger sizes will end up costing about 2-3 bucks more. Either way, it is definitely a bargain.
When I wore the bikini the very first time at the beach, I was a bit afraid that the top would come off while I was in the ocean wave riding. However, it didn’t. The bikini stays in place and you needn’t worry about the ties in the back coming loose while you’re in the ocean or running around playing volleyball.
The fabric is also very durable. It does not rip or tear easily. I’ve gotten the bikini bottoms caught on the side of a chair and they did not rip, tear, or get damaged in the least bit. This bikini also hid my imperfections just wonderfully. It masked my hips, belly, and upper thighs which tend to be the areas of the body most women are self-conscious about. The very best thing about the Cocoship retro vintage high waisted 2 piece bikini is the way it looks. Of course, this is what initially attracted me to this swimsuit. It has the whole rockabilly/ Marilyn Monroe feel about it and it’s definitely in style now a day.
The Cocoship retro vintage bikini is definitely one of my favorite swimsuits out of my swimwear collection. While I don’t have any real serious complaints about the swimsuit, there are a few things I wish were different.
The sizing is a bit awkward for the Cocoship brand. I think this is mostly because Cocoship is an Asian company and Asian sizes are smaller than American sizes. The sizing is: S (US2-4) M (US4-6) L (US6-8) and XL (US8-10). I typically fit in a small in American sizes. However, for this Cocoship bathing suit I ended up having to get a medium. Regardless of what size you wear, it’s always better to go up a size with any Asian clothing company as their sizes are not true to size for us Americans.
Lastly, the top of the bikini lacks underwire. This can be a problem for women who have larger busts as they need more support. Fortunately for me, it’s not an issue but I still would have liked the additional support in the top.
I have received numerous compliments while wearing this swimsuit. It flatters my body well and I think it will flatter most other women’s figures just as well. I would definitely recommend it to my girlfriends if they’re looking for a vintage inspired type of swimwear.
