Alina’s Bikini Shopping Guide

Do you have an upcoming vacation that you need some new cute bikinis for? I’m here to help!

I will admit I have become bikini-obsessed over the past few years. Through this, I’ve learned about many brands and can share my knowledge and experience with you!

  1. Hi there,

    When purchasing from Plumeria and shipping to Canads, did you have any customs or duty fees? If so, roughly how much compared to the cost of your order?

    Thanks 🙂

    1. I’m from canada and I ordered a bikini from plumeria a month a ago. My order total was $47 american/$67 canadian and it took a whole month to get here! They took forever to process the order and actually ship it. On top of that I have to pay $35 in duties 🙁 I’ve been online shopping for years and never had to pay taxes or duties so when the delivery guy said it’s 35 I didn’t have any cash and they don’t accept debit so now I have to bus to another city just to pay more money and get this bikini! Wish I read the reviews before buying… hope the bikinis will actually be good
