Robb and Lulu are two very talented designers that met (lucky for us), fell in love and put their talents together to create some “Wearable Art”. Robb’s always loved designing women’s clothes since he was younger and put that with Lulu’s previous experience skills as an illustrator and designer make for a perfect pair.
Each bikini set comes with one of Lulu’s intricate design and the other comes with a bit of funkiness. These two styles are working very well together; you know when things just work? Yeah that’s what this is.
Anyone who loves art, swimwear and colour is going to love this brand and want to flaunt it for the world to see. I felt more confident when I was wearing mine down by the river, but that didn’t stop me running and screaming when I saw a spider swimming towards me.
R&L is made in Fiji, which is a first, I don’t think I’ve had the pleasure of seeing a bikini made there. So that’s a welcome surprise. Made with a nylon base with a tad bit of elastane to give a comfortable fit.
I wear a size 1 in R&L sizing. I know that sounds funny to you Aussie girls but it’s really pretty easy to work out your sizes following their detailed size chart, and if you get stuck you can always email them.
I’ve picked out the StringSide Pant in the Pink Kissed, it will set you back around $69 to get your hands on one of them. But it’s worth it. Instead of just having the one string like most bikinis do, this one has two on each side knotted together to allow for a single bead to be put on the end of the four strings. I absolutely love this idea, what I love more is that it provides coverage – let’s face it ladies, sometimes you need to cover that booty up as little more from the sun when tanning to avoid sunburn. Coming with a completely lined inside you will feel even more comfortable when lounging around the pool that your bottoms aren’t going to go see through with the water. I’ve actually had that happen to me once and it was not fun when I realized.
The Green Baroque HalterBra is what I’ve mixed with my hipster tie up bottoms, It’s recommended for medium to large busts, so I guess my bust is smaller than I thought haha. But to help make it more comfortable for me I can just take out the removable soft padding from the top. It’s really supportive so I really do recommend this for anyone who has a full C cup upwards on the size chart. The ties on the top are different to your average bikini, they are more fun to look at. This top will set you back $89.
R&L offers free shipping for us Aussie girls and it’ll take 3-5 days to arrive depending on your location in Aus. For a price you can get express postage if you need something before the weekend. AND you do get a confirmation email when your goodies are in the mail
For my USA babes shipping within the USA it’ll only cost $10 and be the same 3-5 working days till you get to wear your bikini.
For all other countries its $29 flat. International orders are sent via TNT international Express. Once your bikini has been sent, you’ll get a unique tracking number. A signature will be required on delivery (this is best for security purposes). If your package is not signed for upon delivery it will be taken to your local post office for collection. Please allow 7-10 business days for your bikini to arrive and it comes packed in a cute little box like this!
It comes with some very clear care instructions that I really advise listening to so your R&L bikini lasts longer.
