Swimwear: Dakota Superfly c/o Triangl Swimwear (shop HERE)
Despite the smiles and laughter, it was 16 degrees this morning and my pool is not heated. Deciding between the possibility of a cold or getting the perfect shots, I chose the latter because anything for the blog. Anything for you guys.
I've been meaning to shoot Triangl Swimwear since my first introductory post into this local label. Here we are, a year later and they have released several collections including a range of mishmash mesh bandeaus (say that five times fast) and some animal printed goodness. Such is Triangl's global popularity that they started a sister brand Triangl Underwear which embodies the sports luxe shapes of their bikinis.
Although winter isn't the best time to be hanging around half naked, the neoprene material makes Triangl pieces ideal to exercise in. Ok, my idea of working out is quite different to the rest of society. Gyms are scary places! The machines look like modern torture devices and the massive guys freak the life out of me. As a trained dancer, I was surprised there's such a thing called a stretching machine. Yes, this gigantic metal contraption designed to help you stretch. Has nobody heard of the floor and a mat?
What I do requires relatively little clothing; ask any aerial dancer and they'll agree we rely a lot on our skin to keep us from dying. So I'm not encouraging you to hit the gym in swimwear. Instead I urge everyone to learn a new skill where you can rock up in the above and not be greeted with condescending glances.
Hello pole dance, lyra or aerial silks. But if you're a beginner, better stay away from the silks.
They are a bitch.
