DKOKO Surf Bikini Review – Exceptional quality, style, & price point

When one of our favourite brands DKOKO announces a new range, we eagerly head straight to their website! These ladies have never missed the mark when it comes to high-performing and flattering surf bikinis. They just started making a range of ethical clothes too, which are equally divine.

In our last DKOKO surf bikini review, we tested the Retro Top (L), $54USD  and the Sexy Surf Bikini Bottom – We have never EVER received so many compliments as we got in that beautiful bikini. So when Michelle at DKOKO hit us up with a new style she thought us and the Still Stoked readers would love, we jumped at putting it to the Still Stoked surf bikini test.

DKOKO Surf Bikini – What we loved…

 

The price point is amazing!

When compared with other leading surf bikini brands that tend to charge around $70USD for a bikini top, this DKOKO surf bikini is incredibly competitive at $50USD and $38USD for the bottoms. But don’t let the price fool you, the quality is every bit as high-end as you would expect from a company we continually say, are one of the best.

The textured ‘Rattan’ fabric

This fabric is luxurious, soft, and classy. Don’t worry though, it doesn’t have a coarse texture which will catch the wax off your board!

Comfortable straps and skinny racerback

Some ladies report not liking a bikini top that comes up high to the neck as it can pull on the tops of your shoulders. We have definitely tested a few of these and also find that incredibly uncomfortable. The DKOKO Purity top, however, does not do that, sitting super comfortably on your shoulders, being pulled into a sleek and sexy racerback. It was incredibly comfortable to wear.

 

The Purity top looks so elegant on, especially if like me, you have a larger bust.

The high neckline is elegant & practical

We always promote having a high-neck bikini in your swimwear quiver for days when you are going to be duck-diving big waves (less flow that can cause drag and stretch the bikini), or want a little more coverage from excess sun exposure. The DKOKO surf bikini Purity top is just that bikini, and it looks so elegant on, especially if like me, you have a larger bust.

 

The thick band around the ribs

We will always bark on about the thickness of the band around the ribs if a bikini isn’t adjustable with ties. DKOKO knows what’s up and has made the band nice and wide so it doesn’t roll up and stays put.

How are those bottoms though!

 

The super sexy bikini bottoms

If you are after coverage on your butt this probably isn’t the bikini bottom for you. DKOKO’s Sexy Surf Bikini bottom is my favourite all-time bikini bottom for minimal coverage and ‘look at my arse’ sexiness. There are two ties, one so you can get it super tight around your hips (yes!!!), and one so you can make the bottoms more ruched. It’s gorgeous and we love it! The bottoms, we mix and match with so many other bikini tops.

We love DKOKO’s attention and commitment to producing an ethical and incredibly well-made surf bikini that will last so you can buy less by buying better.

 

A note on recent recycled textiles trends & sustainability

In swimwear of late, there has been a push/trend to use recycled textiles which we covered extensively in this article What is sustainable swimwear and who are the brands you should know about. DKOKO is fiercely focused on having a positive impact on the region of Central America that they operate in. They believe that planetary wellbeing requires us all to buy less but buy better. The highest priority is to REDUCE waste and make high-quality products. They do not currently use recycled textiles in their range.

Instead, a DKOKO surf bikini is made from Lycra Extra Life with UPF protection, purchased directly from the producer in Brazil. The fabric supplier is Oeketex certified and dutifully compliant with all regional social and environmental standards. Operating with the latest technology in state-of-the-art machinery, their textiles are manufactured using water from the Tiete River in Sao Paolo (one of the most polluted in the Americas), and their ecologically sound production process actually treats the water and returns it clean back into the river.   

We love DKOKO’s attention and commitment to producing an ethical and incredibly well-made surf bikini that will last so you can buy less by buying better.
