Bikinis for a Beach Babe

One of the best things about summer is that it gives us a chance to crack out our bikinis and we don’t mean at the local community pool! Whether you are going away on your holidays to somewhere hot, exotic and warm with pools and beaches galore to choose from or are simply planning to make the most of the hot summer weather at home in the garden or at the beach, then a bikini that makes you look and feel great and that has your confidence soaring is a must.

There are a few things to consider when you are planning on buying a new bikini like what best suits your body shape, if you plan on mainly sunbathing or want to be in the water lots too, and what sort of price you would like to spend. Luckily there is a huge range of fantastic offerings out there both on the high street and online meaning that you will be certain of finding the right 2-piece for you this summer. If the amount of choice is a bit bewildering and you’re not sure where to start then we can help you out with a few of our suggestions below.


For many people since the summer season can seem to be so woefully short there is no reason to splurge on a bikini and a cheap and cheerful one from the high street will do the job nicely. Primark has to be one of our favourite and cheapest shops around and they always boast some really funky patterns as shown with this cool black and white gingham bikini top for £6 (matching briefs just £4). Gingham is a big trend this season and this bikini will have you looking sophisticated without a huge price tag.


A halter-neck string bikini is always going to be an instant classic and this gorgeous tropical print one from Figleaves is gorgeous. This type of style will suit you no matter what your shape and especially for bigger busted ladies it will provide a bit more support without the need for padding or under wires. The best thing of all about this bikini though is the fact that it is reversible with the other side revealing a classy blue stripe motif that is very nautical and on trend.

If you are a bit of a sun worshipper then you’ll want a bikini that gives you minimal tan lines so a bandeau style is the shape that you should be going for. This classic black twist design comes from H&M and features removable straps meaning that you can boast a glowing tan without any of the pesky marks whilst still being fully supported. In such a staple colour that you’ll get lots of wear out, get this from H&M for £12.99 for the top.
