That´s what the manufacturer says about the new effect-bikini:
“This bikini is based on the cut of the new Poolsider retro surf bikini (PS-02HL), and is a fusion of the flair of the 80s with the absolute new development: the reflective rubberized material.
About the fabric: We are proud to have developed a material that you can not find at any other product yet.
We dedicated our special attention to the balance of elasticity, the reflector effect and the optics.
About the design: The look of this bikini is so present and energetic that we have kept the design simple.
Please use this extraordinary swimsuit not only as costume, but also where it feels at home: in the pool and at the beach! “

This´s what REALISE and Poolsider say about this new and unique material:
“Reflector material was first and foremost used in clothing for one, well-known reason: that pedestrians can be seen better by cars at night. This material is also used for uniforms and shoes of the fire brigade and rescue service personnel. In recent years, however, the fashion world has increasingly adopted these reflective panels as fashionable applications in their collections.
The reflective effect results from fine glass beads that are worked into the surface of the fabric. However, it is extremely rare that such a surface (like our product) is processed into elastic fabrics. A production of such a bikini, made entirely of reflective material, was unthinkable at the beginning of the concept phase. In the end, it took about 5 years until this reflective bikini could become reality – and this only through the hard work of many capable engineers, specialists and visionaries. ”
Material composition :
- Surface : 100% polyurethane
- Inner linings : 85% polyester, 15% polyurethane
Care and laundry
The manufacturer recommends:
- hand wash only, inside out
- do not tumble dry
- do not iron
- let it dry in the shadow
New items should be handwashed separately to prevent color bleaching.
Please note that this two-piece suit has a little smaller fit due to the somewhat lower elasticity of the reflector material. The sizes are similar to the general REALISE sizes.
This bikini is only available in Japanese sizes. We have translated this sizes to European sizes and created an detailed size chart. Please notice that our garment sizes are just meant for an approximately information. Please take your exact measurements before you order and compare with this size chart.
Impressions from Realise model (Biru Otsaka) :
I always wear a size L within Realise suits, also when shooting this two-piece by Poolsider. I found the size L to be more suitable and comfortable, as the material is not very elastic. If you wear a Realise size L, you can also wear this suit in L.
