Have you heard of Andie? An advertisement for the company popped up for me somewhere, and I clicked. 😆 But guys. I’m VERY interested. Mostly because of the beautiful textured “Terra” fabric so many of the suits come in (shown above), but also because of how many options there are–specifically long torso options. (It’s crazy! Every suit I looked at came in long torso in a few colors.)
My understanding is that Andie is a direct-to-consumer “customizable” and inclusive bathing suit company similar to Summersalt. (Summersalt, btw, doesn’t carry as many long torso options, but they do have two: the Sidestroke and the Marina.) Both companies get fantastic reviews and offer tons of different styles and sizes. And both companies’ prices are reasonable; you can expect to pay somewhere between $95 and $115 for a one-piece, which is what you’re typically lookin’ at with J.Crew Swim. (Though J.Crew Swim does go on sale more often.) Similarly, tops and bottoms are ~$50 each.
I have to admit that the whole free shipping and returns thing is very alluring, haha. (Which is exactly how they want me to feel!) So yeah. I’m considering the Amalfi, Ibiza, and Mykonos from Andie. And I may try the long torso Marina from Summersalt, since so many people rave about the brand. (LOVE the long torso Sidestroke but it doesn’t come with padding. Also wish it came in white in long torso!) The Tie Oasis (apparently good for long torso) and Jetsetter caught my eye, too.
I’d be thrilled to finally find a suit that I absolutely love… but we’ll see. My hopes aren’t that high, haha!
Note: If you’re looking for other long torso options, I’ve found success with Lands’ End and Boden. I have and love this Lands’ End x Draper James suit and this Boden suit! This full-coverage one and this deep V one from J.Crew are also great.
Have you tried Andie or Summersalt? Reviews, please! :)
