The weather man is calling for a long, hot summer where I live and so I needed no justification in ordering myself another new bikini.
I purchased the top in 30G and the bottoms in Medium. I requested that the bottoms have the waist line raised one inch higher than is the standard for Comexim bikini bottoms. I did this because I felt that my two other Comexim bikinis (Jamaica and Pin Up Girl) were a tad low cut. Actually, that isn’t really the whole truth. What happened was this. This past March I was strolling along a gorgeous white sand beach in the Caribbean with my teen daughter when she asked if we could go for a ride on one of those fun-looking little sail boats that resort workers will take guests out on. “Sure!” I said, although frankly it was a bit windy that day, the surf was kicking up pretty good and I thought we might possibly even die. Anyway, off we went and sure enough a big wave came up, soaked me right down and just about dragged my pants out to sea too. So now I’m nervous of losing my pants and feel a little safer with them up a bit higher.
My bikini top is in the classic plunge style, with no modifications.
This bikini top features all silver-toned hardware and a jaunty little knotted bow at the gore which brings to mind a sailor’s rope.
In designing this set, special attention has been paid to what Jaimie’s customers have been looking for in a bikini. The bikini bottoms are fully lined. The band of the bikini top is extra firm and strong, due to the addition of a supportive fabric liner built into the backside of the bikini’s band.
The shoulder straps are double layered and have reinforced zigzag stitching so that, for women with heavier busts, they will offer extra support, will not fold and will be much more comfortable. There is a firm locking clip at the back. I did note that the shoulder straps are only partially adjustable due to the extra silver ring on the back of the shoulder straps. If you require the straps to be fully adjustable, you should request to have your bikini top made without that additional ring. Personally, I have no need to adjust the straps that high and I feel that the extra bit of hardware adds to the whole nautical / bikini vibe.
While I was at the Bra Obsessed shop a few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to take a look at and try on Jaimie’s other exclusive bikini for 2016, the Comexim Port. This is a sophisticated and sleek little black number with gold hardware made of high quality Lycra. I noticed this bikini top showed quite a lot of cleavage. The Port model actually owes its extra sexy appearance to having reduced cups and gore, which also helps it to have a less bra-like appearance.
This suit features the same special details as the Harbour, with the extra fabric liner in the band and the re-engineered shoulder straps. The band definitely felt snug and secure and the gold locking clip felt strong enough that you wouldn’t have to worry about any wardrobe malfunctions on the beach.
Both the Port and Harbour bikinis can be ordered in your choice of regular cup style, half cup style, etc. (and you can even have the bottoms made higher if you are worried about losing them at sea!).
