The main thing I noticed with the new Balboa suits is that the fabric is SO much softer than I expected!! It’s really stretchy but even if you stretch it as far as it can go, it doesn’t become see-through, which is great. I love wearing the top twisted and the bottoms have good coverage depending on how you adjust them (I like fuller bum coverage but still high cut on the hips). Overall this suit is really comfortable and will definitely be my new go-to black bikini.
Two things that weren’t my favourite- the seam on the bum/crotch area is a little bit uncomfortable, but nothing horrible. I can just feel the seam there so it’s a bit weird. And second, because of the type of fabric, the straps on the top end up looking a little bunchy/scrunchy. They’re just a bit thick, I guess.
For context - I am 5’7” and 130 lbs.
