When it comes to bikinis, I prefer quality to quantity! Above are just a few of my favourite bikini brands and styles this year. I love to purchase bikinis from niche online boutiques or Australian brands (usually found on Instagram) for unique cuts, styles and exotic prints. As much as I love ruffles and prints, simple bikinis in block colours are essential. The brands above (from left to right) are Bamba Swim, Sommer Swim, Zulu & Zephyr, Zimmermann, For Love & Lemons, Burrows & Co and Somedays Lovin. Some are pricier than others but I totally believe you pay for what you get! It's so important to feel comfortable and confident in swimwear - after all it's the least amount of clothing you wear in public. It all comes down to knowing your own body and which styles suit you best. For me, I suit triangle cups with straps sitting on the shoulders opposed to bandeau shapes. I also prefer no padding/ thin padding over push up - I often remove the padding from bikinis when I buy them! The same rules apply for bottoms - I suit thin or tie side straps compared to thick straps or short styles. As I said before, it's different for everyone and luckily brands usually create several different bikini shapes in the same prints or fabric, catering to everyone.
Although I love these swimwear brands and if I could, I would buy almost every bikini on their websites (not even kidding), I still love to shop high street styles from Zara, H&M, Topshop and Cos! Check out a few of my favourite styles:
Time to get bikini buying, beach babes!
