Andi Bagus Kulit Bikini Review

For the record, I would like to point out that since posting this review I have now been blocked from Andi Bagus' Instagram. Now I absolutely can't shop with them again in the future. This just says enough about their customer service that I really don't even need to continue with my review. 


So i've finally found a bikini for sun baking only. This Andi Bagus Kulit Suede bikini is purely for looks in my eyes. Attempted to wear it at the beach and i'm incredibly grateful there was no one else there with us. It actually fell off while i was walking after it got wet! Not to mention the waves practically knocked it off too.

My boobs fell out completely ( I had underboob from the start), i'm not a heavy chested girl but this one size in the bust is a bit frustrating, it means anyone bigger then a C cup won't stay in it, as much as Monty thought that it was great! i didn't find it at all amusing. The back tie around my ribs didn't stay tied up - like is there a special way to tie up string like that? am i missing something here guys?

As much as i love looking at this bikini it's a no go for me. I did take some cute photos though, on the bright side. And it does photograph well.

It does dig into my hips - the elastic is thin so that's why it does that. If you're a curvy girl i don't recommend it, even if you're as small as me. You can't have any fat on your hips at all to wear it and it fit like a glove. This is an issue i've been having with some new designs that are out as of late. The thinner the strap, the more it will dig into my hips. I'm learning to embrace this fact and to be more comfortable in my own skin.

I love the material and the earthy colour of the bikini, the cheeky tiny design makes it perfect for tanning. It also won't matter if your tanning oil gets on the outside of the crochet detailing too - super handy! my Cocoa Bali Body oil usually leaves marks on my bikinis till i wash them (sometimes it will stain them too). Also, this baby is hand wash only - and dried flat in the shade just like every other 'kini i recommend. That's just another tip to keep them at their peak for seasons to come. Out of ten on the bikinis i would purchase in another colour - i score this one a 4.
For the record, i've reversed the top for a more plainer detail on the front. I didn't really like the crosses and felt like mixing it up a little. A few people have messaged me and told me i had it on inside out - this is totally done on purpose, guys, i'm aware, and yes it's okay!

  1. Hi Maddy, I just read your post about the 'Andi Bagus Kulit Seude Bikini' and am really surprised... I have this bikini in nearly every colour because I adore them. They are so comfortable and don't lose shape or colour when I swim with them. I have been to the beach, pool and even surfed wearing these without any trouble.

    Also, an article I read recently recommends hand-washing all of your bathers/bikinis due to the harsh conditions these items are usually subject too. So I don't think this is relevant purely to Andi Bagus.

    Thanks.

    1. Hi Lisa :)

      Thanks for taking the time to comment. Since i've got around 100 bikini sets so far, when i do review them, in every review i always mention to hand wash your bikinis, since some girls have no clue that certain materials need to be hand washed only. It's one thing i will never get sick of repeating. I would hate for a washing machine to ruin them! You're right, it's not relevant to just this one brand. Take a trip through my other review posts, some of them also have extra care tips for certain brands.

      I've even got a post on here about how to store your bikinis, when my collection got to about 50 bikinis i ran out of space in the one draw and had to get creative about the different ways to store your swimmers during the winter to keep them at their peak. I spent hours online trying to find a post that could help but found nothing! so i decided to write my own!

      It was such a shame i had a hard time with this bikini because they're all so gorgeous, i've never actually seen a photo of a wet one before, or what they look like after swimming. Nor had i seen anything online about what it is like to get wet. The waves just about knocked it off my body and it wasn't a rough day at the beach either, my mum had a fit at me for nearly being nude by the time i walked out of the surf haha.

      Either way, i've never seen a negative review on the brand so i thought i would give it a go. It's certainly not for me and i really wasn't a fan, it might be somewhere at the top of my picks if i go tanning.

  2. Andi Bagus has cute bikinis but their customer service is horrible... I emailed some questions and the responses were so curt and insanely rude remarks were made. it was a huge disappointment to say the least. When I think about it, I cringe because I can't imagine anyone being so disrespectful in real life. Safe to say I will never shop with them; nice attempt though!

    1. THIS HAPPENED TO ME AS WELL! They said they didn't want any "bad vibes" and refunded me without my permission!

  3. They were complete ******* to me not ten minutes ago. I placed an order and paid through PayPal. PayPal showed me incorrect charges, so I asked them about it...and they told me they complete thousands of orders successfully without complaint.

    I told them that was unprofessional and places blame on me as a customer. They then blocked me on instagram, and refunded me WITHOUT me even asking. Who the hell does that! I am reporting them to the better business bureau if possible.

    1. i'm so sorry i didn't reply earlier! i didn't even see your comment!
      They're such assholes and we really need to spread awareness on how people shouldn't shop with them!
      For future reference you can make complaints through paypal to organise a refund too if you feel the product wasn't right - or you were overcharged.

  4. THEY ARE COMPLETE DOUCHEBAGS... I literally have never gone from "biggest fan" To "WTF?" with a brand. i was given a set for my birthday back in May (thanks to some good friends who put the word out that I wanted bikinis and the brands I liked, one Andi Bagus ended up in my gift bags.. ) I finally wore it for a shoot (I'm an actress.. I just modeled in a fall campaign/which only matters because I actually reached out WITH a nice photo from the shoot saying FIRST how much I loved the color) but the bikini came apart after the shoot despite the fact I wore no jewelry and hand washed it.. and it came apart under the boob. They not only were sketchy as hell when I wrote them so politely (in response to my very fair, "Hey guys! I'm sure this rarely happens but for some reason my bikini came apart after one wear"), they came back with "what did you do to it? Did you wear jewelry or pull at it? and we always check our stock before it goes out".. accusing me of mishandling it without even so much as a thank you for reaching out and so sorry to hear it. THEN when they conceded to try to fix it they said the original buyer had to do it.. A) it was gifted to me back in MAy and I have no idea which of my friends (it may have been 2 of them together) got it for me.. to which she replied "NICE TRY>. this was probably a promo piece".. which would make it EVEN WORSE. Total disrespect for these people.. I normally LOVE the indie brand but they are egomaniacs and terrible business people.. and let's be honest Anna Kosturova did it first.

  5. btw I am totally going to slay them in a review because for me, not only getting bad customer service is one thing but to be accused of "trying" to pull something when I was doing them a favor by sharing a flaw that I felt was just a mistake. NO WAY should a brand block you from instagram (they did that to me too)... FIGHT BACK. I already posted about it to a girls group 15k strong on FB ...

    1. i feel your pain girl!! what's the facebook group you posted to? this is becoming one on my top 5 blog posts on my blog too! i'm getting so many girls commenting and emailing me about their poor customer service. I can't believe that's what they said to you! how rude. Slay them girl! but be careful of defamation, Triangl threatened to sue me 2 years ago for defamation when i had proof of what they were doing to their customers with their shitty customer service and blocking people. They're a**holes. I've been blocked by way too many companies on Insta now, losing track of them all!!

  8. IF UR READING THIS DONT BUY FROM ANDI BAGUS- ANDREA LOEL.They are the most unprofessional, mean, evil brand I've ever dealt with. Or should I say the owner ANDREA LOEL. I bought some stuff from there, over 400$ including a pair of the "dangerous velour shorts" with the top, I liked the top but the band in the shorts was placed in so twisted they were unwearable and I was unable to manipulate the band through the shorts, I messaged them on ig asking if they think if it's a good idea to take it to alteration shop to have them fixed, keep in mind didn't want a refund or exchange didn't even ask I seriously loved them and they replied saying I was lying and I put them in the wash. What?! I replied saying no I didn't, and why would they just up right accuse a customer who spent over 400$ on murchandise then they blocked me. So yeah, don't buy from here.
