Andie swimwear does what most swimwear brands don’t do: allow the customer to control their own shopping experience.

Offering free shipping, free returns, and unlimited exchanges means no more trying on swimsuits in department store fitting rooms with terrible lighting, or eating the cost of shipping when you want to order a suit online. Andie is basically risk-free swimwear shopping from the comfort of your own couch.

After some trial and error (because I have a short torso, most one-pieces that fit normal people don’t fit me and Andie was no different, unfortunately) I found the perfect swimsuit in their San Sebastian Top and La Playa Bottom. I’m a sucker for stripes, what can I say?

The material is sturdy, double-lined, and stretchy. And it fits like a dang glove. My favorite part of this style of swimsuit is that it gives full coverage on the bottom, but doesn’t sacrifice style or comfort.

Half the time I wear a full-coverage bikini bottom, I end up picking material out of my ass because it turns into a perma-wedgie, and the other half of the time it sags to full-on diaper butt. Neither are a good look. But this Andie suit is nicely snug without feeling like I’m spilling out of it or risking looking like I just shit in my bathing suit.

While their one-pieces are on the pricier side for swimwear, the bikinis fall in the average price category, but they feel much more expensive. I already have my eye on the Monaco.
