Kini Swimwear – Design Process

Happy Friday! Today I am excited to share with you my experience with a really cool company called Kini Swimwear.

Are you looking for the PERFECT swimsuit for this spring/summer?! I had been looking everywhere when I came across Kini Swimwear and knew I was sold. Kini Swimwear is an online swimwear retailer that let’s you DESIGN YOUR OWN SWIMSUIT! Yep, you read that right… how great is that!?

The process is really simple, and lots of fun. On Kini Swimwear you start designing your swimsuit by picking from a great selection of top and bottom designs.

This is where your creativity really gets to go wild. You can pick different parts of the swimsuit to have different colours and patterns. The possibilities are pretty much endless!

 I had a ton of fun with this part – and actually made and “saved” a number of different designs before finally selecting the one I wanted to get. You can see a couple of my ideas in the pictures below!! Let me know in the comments what you think of these and which one is your favourite!

Overall,
I really enjoyed this whole process and can’t wait to wear my custom swim suit!. In terms of customer service, I would have to say this is one of
the BEST companies I have worked with. I had a LOT of questions (… I
think I emailed poor Em & Elle, the owners, at least 5 times!) and
they were always helpful and happy to help with tips about measuring your body for fit, and comments about how certain styles fit.


I am more than happy to answer (honestly) any and all questions you may have about Kini swimwear; so feel free to ask away in the comments below!

The only “negative” I can possibly say about them is, you guessed it, the price. I would not normally spend close $200 on a swimsuit. Depending on what you are hoping to spend on swimwear though, I do think this could be a great investment. The way I see it, if you have a swimsuit you absolutely love (because you made it!) then you will have that swimsuit for years, and feel confident when wearing it (something that is HUGE for me when trying to pick amongst the always teeny-tiny, stupidly skimpy cheap swimsuits I seem to find in big box type stores). Something to think about.
