Carioca Swim Wear

I like their breifs, especially this one, but it's so expensive.

Here's the link: https://cariocawear.com/collections/bri ... mming-suit

Has anyone ever purchased this brand?

Years ago, Carioca was my favorite. I still like them, but there are issues:

1. Prices got astronomical. Get on their email list. Even their sale prices are high, but occasionally they have a good clearance or discount.

2. The sizing is inconsistent sometimes. I have a Low-Rise Small from a few years ago that fits nice. So that's what I bought again. But the newer one is cut noticeably smaller in side-by-side comparison.

3. The cut is weird. My impression is that in going from Traditional to Classic to Low-Rise to Brief, they just lowered the waistline instead of raising the leg opening. For me, I couldn't wear the Brief. Even though it fit perfect in the waist, it was too low to cover everything front or back. I returned it. Through trial-and-error, I found the Low-Rise Small or Classic XS work with my body type. ... I don't understand why the "brief" cut looks great on their models but doesn't cover me. Maybe in M/L sizes, it is less of an issue.

4. I don't like their "superfit" fabric. The standard lycra material is much better imo.

PROS: They are super comfortable. The quality of construction is really good. And I think their classic "sunga" style is hot.

They're on sale at USD50.00

I don't know if I will still purchase them. Finances are tight as a result of COVID-19
Here is the link in case anyone is interested: https://cariocawear.com/collections/swi ... mming-suit

I've always wanted to try these. I just bought 3 pair at $30 each. The True Blue bikini and brief, and the Gipioa brief. Unfortunately they sent 2 True Blue bikinis, but they are exchanging 1 for the Eden Green and Grey. I haven't worn them beyond trying them on, but they fit good and feel comfortable. The bikini is very low and fit very similar to Sporti Euros (only thicker material) or Turbos Polo (about the same thickness). The brief fits similar to any non-nylon Aussiebums, such as their Swish.
Sorry boys, straight and already taken!

ExBex, what's your profile suit? That's a hot one on a buff bod! Maybe more pix in it?

I've got the gold Daredevil, but not the bod to make it work. Like that orangish color more, that you've got!
