||Iíve been wanting to join a bikini site for a while now, but never bothered because Iím not really into softcore. I was browsing through sites with a TBP/PU discount or full trial and Bikini Dream popped up. I figured that risking $10 for a small network (through a reputable biller) wasnít a big deal.
Subjectively, Iím a bit disappointed, but thatís my fault. The site is more softcore than I even imagined it could be. While all of the models are beautiful, many of the bikinis arenít all that revealing. With very rare occasions, there is no nudity at all, and that is usually just breasts. ButÖ having said that, the videos are still good once you recognize that this isnít a nude site.
The videos all follow a simple theme: put a beautiful young model in a bikini and let her pose at a beach or some other outdoor venue. Itís simple, but it works. There are about 5-6 videos shot on Miami-area beaches of girls just sunning themselves.
My biggest complaint with the site is that approximately 75% of the models have only photos available. That alone isnít a deal breaker, but the fact that the photos arenít available as a zip doesnít make sense. This isnít 1999 any longer. The photos that you do take the time to download arenít all that impressive. They arenít terrible, but they are lower resolution than customers would expect in 2011.
As for the technical bits, the site is very basic. There is no search function, but one really isnít needed given the volume of the content. There are approximately 250 sets available, dating from 2005 to current (there appear to be weekly updates). Of those sets, less than 70 have videos. The videos are in 1280x720 resolution with all having approximately 3500kbps. Subjectively, the quality looks good and is up to industry standards, but they should consider offering higher-res videos or HD on new shoots.
Bikini Dream is part of a small network, which certainly increases the value of the membership. None of the other sites have exclusive content though, and most of it is readily available elsewhere. The additional sites are grouped around a common theme, like ďStunnersĒ for beautiful women or ďAll Anal XXXĒ for anal sex. All of the additional sites are fairly small and have the same technical specs as Bikini Dream.
So is Bikini Dream worth the price of the membership? If you join for the 5-day full trial at $9.95, definitely; if you sign up for the full month membership, probably not. Iím not interested in many of the sites on the network and I was easily able to download everything I wanted in a day. Thankfully the site supports download managers so I was able to queue up all the scenes I wanted and let FDM do all the work. If you have a specific interest in (mostly) non-nude bikini modeling, this site is worth looking at. If one of the other sites on the network tickles your fancy, the trial is still a good value but keep in mind that it isnít exclusive.
