Hello Swimsuit of My Dreams

I know that I tried to start a one piece conga line at our joint birthday party last week, and all things considered you guys were down to put on a weird hat, an old school swimsuit, and grab the shoulders of the stranger in front of you to make a human centipede. And I really appreciate that, I do.

It’s just that about one day later I fell in love with the swimsuit of my dreams, and instead of an unitard, it’s a bikini.

The brand is called Kiini (because get it…like bi-kini?) and each suit is handmade so no two are exactly the same, which is great, because the only thing worse than wearing the same dress as someone is wearing the same swimsuit as someone. The horror. THE HORROR.

They come in a crayon box of color — royal blue for me, navy for you, pink for the panther, white for me again, yellow for…what do you know, also for me! Or fine, you can do yellow too. (Let’s just coordinate being on different beaches that day, cool?)

Not only do they “unleash superpowers such as extreme positivity,” according to the site, but their creators say that “suggested activities include but are not limited to: catching waves, cartwheeling, daydreaming, making out, hula hooping.”

Well. If there’s one thing I love more than a conga-dancing centipede in rainbow of one pieces, it’s a wave-catching cartwheeling daydreaming makeout with a hula hoop around my waist and a candy-bright bikini on my butt. Sold.

  • Ahh! My initial gleam into the world of Kini was when I saw the Australian goddess Alexandra Spencer (@4thandbleeker) lookin’ all tan and cool snorkeling in Mexico in a colorful one of these suits.

    They are SO cool. Plus, colorful and fun and one-of-a-kind.

      I think you mean fun-of-a-kind

      • Amelia Diamond

        I sure did.

      • Oh snap I meant it before I thought it. You’re great, Medine.

    I’ve always been into bikinis. I remember buying a tiny one when I was 15 and my mum saying ‘wear it while you can’…I guess that I’m willing to stretch that ‘while you can’ for as long as I can…by that I probably mean until I’m in my 60ties (and if I happen to look good by that time some more please…). Plus, the only water sport I truly love is swimming (that and picigin but that is my little nation’s invention so you may not have heard of it) and when you swim if something peeps out the chances are no one saw it- unless there is a strategically positioned free diver…thinking about all this so makes me want to the beach tomorrow and swim until my muscles explode.

    XOX, Gap.

    This is cute and different but once you go Agent Provocateur you can’t go back.

  • Jenna Calderone

    These are beautiful, but I can say with certainty that those bottoms are not ready for my jelly…ordering bikinis bottoms online is but a daydream for me *sob*

  • nikija

    ehh… no, to these bikinis I would say no 🙁

  • FatFreeFashion

    Wow, love them! I think I’d probably wear it over a white tee…they’re just too fun to reserve strictly for the beach.


  • Rey Abadi

    Love Love it… 🙂



  • These bikinis look amazing, really unique! Wish I was going on holiday now…

  • will you really wear it?

    Uh….. there is no bottom on that bikini bottom. I’m pretty sure that accidentally they just sewed two bikini bottom fronts together. I would not even say that this baby has back but I have enough to necessitate a back of a bikini bottom for my bottom.

    • Amelia Diamond

      sometimes i dont wear any bottoms on the beach so for me, it’s a major step up!

  • MelindaValle

    Girls can feel comfortable to wear a swim suit during the swimming .

  • TeneshaPigford

    Specially young girls can do it shopping for the Bikini during the swimming.

  • Lisa Daniels

    How are the sizes of the kiini’s? Im about to order the COOLEST bikni ever but don’t know whether they tend to be tiny-of-a-kind.

    • Olivia Gaze

      the sizing on the website is quite misleading for the bottoms. Apparently a small bottoms is for a size 0 US and a medium is for a 2-4!

  • Glenn

    Have you worn it out? Does the cotton crochet actually hold up once wet?

  • Theresa

    How do these work on a DD would you say?
