Beach and bikini ready
Undoubtedly one of the most important holiday considerations, and one of the most difficult, is what you will and won’t be wearing on the beach. The bikini set is a classic, but it’s also intimidating. Don’t worry though, there are plenty of ways to make a bikini more forgiving, whatever your size. Not a bikini fan? No problem, we’ve got a range of other swimwear to get you paddling and sunbathing in style.
Flattering and confidence-boosting swimwear
The perfect bikini can give you figure-flattering confidence. There are a range of styles to choose from including halterneck, one- and two-strapped, or strapless. For the ladies with a fuller bust, consider some additional support with a push-up bikini top. In terms of bikini bottoms, high-waisted are everywhere, but slim-fit and eyelet tie are still go-to styles.
Bold and bright bikinis
What colours and patterns are trending? A lot of designers have kept things simple by providing loads of options in black, with a focus on a high-waisted silhouette. At the other end of the spectrum, there print designs are trending, including animal print. Simple colour blocking in bikini classics red, pink and white remain timeless. For the bling lovers among us, go for gold. For drying off after a dip or for those more sensitive about their midriffs and tummies, a beach wrap or full swimsuit can give you the confidence you’re after.
