I’m back with the second review I am doing for Kikini. I am really enjoying rediscovering this brand. The first pair I reviewed, the Croft Micro Brief, were amazing so I definitely had high hopes for the Imola Brief.
The Imola brief is more of a brief cut than a bikini. It is made out of the same material the Croft is made out of, but had a traditional waistband. Again when I held it up I was a little worried about the size. More on that in a bit later in the reivew. The designs that Kiniki has for their underwear are awesome. They are super fun and not prints I have seen in the world of underwear that often! So massive points scored for that!
I wore the pair on an average day, but I had planned on wearing to a party one night but I couldn’t wait to try it out! The first thing I noticed was the waist band was a little tight. Not binding tight but still noticeable when I put it on. As the day progressed I really didn’t notice it. The fabric like the Croft brief felt awesome. I love the fabric of the pair. The Poly Lycra fabric is becoming one of my favorites!
Kikini says this about the pair: “The Kiniki brief features an integrated front panel for optimum support & tailored comfort while the waist is completed with a new, wider, signature Kiniki waistband made from a shimmering elastic weave making for an extra comfortable waistband that reduces pressure on the skin and looks distinctive in it’s high quality finish.”
I mentioned above the print. This print is called HD print. It is designed exclusively by Kikini and you won’t find it anywhere else. I don’t think it is, but this pair reminds me of a snake print. Their other prints are just as amazing. If you are not a print fan, I suggest you stay away, if you are go now and buy!
The sizing was a little tighter than the previous pair. The bikini (micro brief) fit great. The waistband was a bit tighter than I would like. Like I mentioned above the pair didn’t bind or constrict me. But there were a few times I could tell it was a little tight. It detracted some but not a great deal from this site.
