Hana, Maui // Becca swimsuit at Black Sand Beach

becca siren one piece flattering swimsuit review black

Becca Siren swimsuit XS (also sold here), Talbots sunglasses c/o,
ASOS maxi skirt 00P, old headscarf (lots of cute options here)

This was one of my favorite swimsuits that I packed – no sucking in after eating, no fretting over pokey “headlights,” and no fear of a bikini top or bottom getting whisked away by a strong wave! Do check out my previous review of this swimsuit with measurements, since the torso of this might be too long on some petite ladies (it also comes in a bikini version which might be easier to fit).

I loved slipping on a skirt or sarong to create a quick resort-ready outfit. You can easily fake a “dress” look like I did here, by keeping the entire look monochromatic. FYI the slit on this skirt is pretty high, so I usually safety-pin it closed a few inches lower (see more maxi skirt pairing ideas in my vacation packing post)!

Unfortunately size XS in this swimsuit is hard to find in stock – I did see a few left in floral and white, so wanted to show you guys how the latter color looked on me! The white is a head-turner in my opinion, and I would’ve kept it over black if I didn’t already own another white suit. Which do you like better here?

I’m so glad we ended up staying in Hana in order to have more time to enjoy each one of our stops. This was part of Wai’anapanapa State Park, with sand black from volcanic lava. I’m working on a full post about our experience on the popular “road,” and Nick’s doing a fun one per your requests about taking photos together while traveling!

    I go to Pure Glow tanning on Newbury St. They claim to do an organic spray tan – not sure exactly what that means, but I'm hoping it means no harmful chemicals on my skin.

    Both the white and the black look great on you Jean. Adding the skirt is a perfect option for vacation packing. Thanks, as always, for the tips. I'm going to Costa Rica in a couple of months and plan to pack some of these items you suggested.

  15. Hi! I, also, am busty on top (32E) and small everywhere else (23 waist). I ordered an xs and, unfortunately, it did not cover up enough of the bust for me. I'm currently in the process of hunting down a small instead. The bottom portion of the xs fit well. However, because of how well the suit is made, I'm not anticipating the bottom portion of the small to be too large. Hope this helps!

  16. That swimsuit is gorgeous and I love how it looks like a dress with the black skirt on as well!
    Even better than a coverup lol ♥

    Hi Jean – I love the becca swimsuit. I'm fairly busty on top though quite small everywhere else. I'm a 29E but 24 in waist and I'm guessing that this style or at least the XS size is going to be too small on top? What do you think? Thanks!

    I got a spray tan before leaving…but it was pretty pricey, so I'd love any recommendations on a good self-tanner that won't rub off on clothes!
