I've been eyeing these summer-ready pieces for a while, and now I finally got the chance to try them out! Keep reading for all the details!

The first piece that I picked out, which was also the least expensive of the five, was a faux leather lace-up bralette.

This black faux leather crop top is sold in sizes M and L, but the sizes run small; the M fits more like an XS or S. With adjustable straps, triangle cups, lace-up detailing, and a partially stretchy band at the back, this top is a super trendy and unique piece, great for layering or for wearing on its own.

Compared to the pictures on Wholesalebuying's site, the actual bralette has some differences in appearance; the lace-up straps are thinner on the real product, and the plunging V-neckline is deeper in the actual product than in the model photos.

Despite the differences, this piece is a great steal for such a low price! I do wish that it was lined on the inside with some sort of polyester or cotton fabric, since the faux leather material isn't very breathable. Nonetheless, it's a stylish top, and the measurements are accurate to the size chart.

Next up is a holographic lace-up crop top, offered in sizes S-L.

This ultra-cropped lace-up bralette is crafted from a stretchy, form-fitting fabric with a glittering, iridescent color. With ties at the neckline and waist, this top is quite adjustable, and the straps at the waist can be tied at the front (as displayed in the modeled photos on the store website) or wrapped around the waist for different looks.

Quality-wise, this top is incredibly well-made for such an inexpensive price. It's quite small and revealing, with a style that's perfect for raves and festivals. It looks exactly as expected, and the colorful holographic fabric gives it an eccentric flair.

Along with the two lace-up crop tops, the third item I got from Wholesalebuying was a strapless mesh paneled bodycon dress, offered in black and nude, sizes M-XL.

I got this dress in black, size M. Material- and craftsmanship-wise, this dress wasn't as great as I'd hoped. The material is a thin, lightweight polyester, and the dress has elastic detailing at the neckline and visible stitching along the mesh panels, so it obviously isn't the most high-quality piece.

That being said, the upside to the fabric is that it's super stretchy and comfortable, with enough stretch to fit anywhere from an XS to an M.

I love the style of this dress, which elevates the simple silhouette of a strapless bodycon dress with sleek mesh panels. Unfortunately the quality just didn't make the cut for me, and I really wish it was constructed from a thicker cotton or knit fabric, because the style is a must-have!

The fourth piece I got, which happens to be the only colorful piece, was a pleated pink skort, sold in sizes S-XL.

This skort is sold in five colors including black, navy, army green, apricot, and pink. It features a stretchy elastic waistband, pleated chiffon skirt overlay, and smooth shorts attached underneath.

This was the most expensive of the five items that I got from Wholesalebuying, and the quality turned out to be the best! It's very well constructed, with a breathable and lightweight fabric that's super comfortable and perfect for spring or summer.

I love skorts because they give you the look of a skirt with the safety of shorts, and this skort surpassed my expectations. The sizing is accurate to the product measurements, and the short length of the skort gives it a very flattering effect. This piece is undoubtedly my favorite of the five, and it's tempting me to get this skort in the other colors as well!

The fifth and final summery piece that I picked was a 2-piece black bikini swim set, sold in sizes S-L.

This simple style includes a padded halterneck bikini top with a keyhole cutout and criss-crossed design, paired with matching black bikini bottoms that have simple cutout accents on the sides. The top has no closures and is a simple slip-on design, so it was a bit confusing to figure out how to arrange the straps the right way before pulling it on.

The quality is great for something of this price, comparable to $20+ swimsuits. Design-wise, the sleek crossed design and solid black fabric make it a flattering and slimming piece, while the cutouts add a touch of sexiness to the otherwise simple style. This set is definitely worth the price, and I'm super satisfied with it!

Overall

This was a very pleasant experience overall with Wholesalebuying; though the black strapless dress was rather disappointing, the other four items were well worth the price.
