Beach babes, listen up! If you’re looking for a classic yet chic bikini that still has just enough sexy detailing, look no more! I’ve found the perfect suit for you! I’m normally one that opts for a solid black LBB (little black bikini) but will stray from the usual if I actually find something with beautiful details that is still black. 😂 When I first saw this suit on the Wala Swim website months and months ago I knew it was going to be mine. It was only a matter of time! With just having surgery back then I thought it was silly to start bathing suit shopping when I knew I would be stuck in bed for another few months. Thankfully, vacation time finally arrived and you better believe I stocked up on an array of black bikini options when they had their huge sale.
I feel like I was most excited about this PilyQ suit mainly because it is so different than what I would normally wear. Seriously y’all, I only wear black and the occasional white garment, if you haven’t noticed. Anyway, I absolutely fell in love with the lace detailing on this suit and it even has a nude underlay that makes the lace pop even more.
I’m sure most of y’all are curious to know about sizing on this suit. For me to even be posting about this bikini means that it met my extremely high swimsuit standards! Am I the only one that HATES bathing suit shopping because the fit is always AWFUL. That was a dumb question because I know for a fact that I’m not the only one who dreads swimsuit shopping. It always seems to be awful these days with those random rolls you didn’t know you had… or those stretch marks that just popped up and don’t get me started on the cellulite. And now there are all of these ridiculous options out there that I feel like we are all doomed to actually pull off a suit and still look sexy! Besides all of those #bodygoals girls we see everywhere.
Ok, I got off on a tangent there. PilyQ is known for running a tad smaller than normal so I would recommend sizing up if you want a little more coverage. If you like your butt hanging out more than not, then stick with your original size. I had originally ordered both small and medium bikini bottoms thinking I might be able to fit into the small but these soccer thighs and butt absolutely refused. Personally, I loved how the medium fit me. I am normally a 0/2 in shorts and jeans but still have larger thighs, tons of stretch marks and cellulite so covering my cheeks is top priority for me.
The top is definitely an easier fit. Whether you have small boobs or large boobs, there is an option for you. Sizing seemed pretty accurate on their tops but like I said with the bottoms, if you like more coverage then order a size up. As most of y’all have read or seen, I am pretty busty so I went ahead and tried the large top and the D and I obviously went with the larger one for comfort and practicality. 😜
These photos are some of my absolute favorites from the trip mainly because we got to show off part of our amazing cabana at Papaya Playa and the stairs that led up to our private pool. Keep an eye out because I will be doing a write up on the hotel and some fun things to do around Tulum because quite a few of y’all have been messaging me saying y’all are taking trips there soon and need tips!
