  2. Taj says:

    Absolutely beautiful and I will definitely check these bikinis out.

    WERRRRRKKKKKKKK! I want 2 for this summer. Jesus H Christ this is fashion!

  4. Emily says:

    Good idea, bad execution though.

  5. Amani says:

    I’m not a fan of ankara or wax print bathing suits…the fabric doesn’t seem at all suitable for the water…and I agree with Emily, the execution on these is not great and I would again contribute that to the stiff nature of fabric.

  6. Wallflower says:

    Love the concept, love the prints… fit looks questionable.

  7. Meika says:

    love it & yes I would rock it!!!

  8. blow my candles out says:

    On the site, there’s one with a brown bow which could be worn with pants. It’s a nice top. As to actual beachwear, that blue hooded number is killing me then bringing me back to life. Umm, zombie? :lol:

  15. vonne says:

    Cute models.

  16. Natasha says:

    I’m into the blue one too @LadyLove. Cost: 75 Euros + shipping. How do I know? I asked last night :lol: The right email to reach them is (not the one on the site contact form). FYI, fellow fashionistas

  17. Dani says:

    I Would love to own one of these bikinis…*salivating*

  18. Samantha says:

    I love colors and love Ankara fabric but is it great for the beach and pool? Or just to pose up?

  19. Natasha says:

    Update: Still on the prowl for the blue one. I was given a personalized shipping quote than asked for “measurements”

    Did she want me to measure my bust, waist, hips or give her a dress size? If dress size: US or UK?

    Simple question but suffice it to say, I’m still waiting for clarification.

    Used to getting custom pieces squared up at a faster pace than this. Hopefully, I’ll have the suit for this swimming season :lol:
