It is getting closer and closer to my Australia trip, so I thought that I would do a quick, cheeky little post on the bikinis that I have so far!
I thought I had more than this, but don’t you worry, I have had my eyes caught on another few which are in the post, at the moment!
Ok, so firstly I thought that I would tell you a little about my body shape (cringe). I am 5 foot 3, have quite a petite build, small top half and a larger bottom half. That’s that, briefly put! (BRIEFLY put.. funny me).
Moving on – the first bikini that I decided to get was this gorgeous navy floral padded bikini top from Debenhams. This was £26 and can be found HERE. This bikini top has a serious amount of padding going on, which yes I would like a little bit of assistance in that area, but boy it’s a LOT of padding! But still, I really liked the pattern and I feel pretty snug and secure in this one!
It has two options of wear, you can wear the top as a halterneck or strapless – as the straps fold down and back, into a thicker back piece which covers over the original back strap. I think this is great, as I tend to lose straps if I take them off and this one actually stays up without the straps on! This is definitely my favourite bikini so far!
Next bikini I found in Primark, it is this amazing yellow, orange and pink daisy print. This bikini also has a bit of padding (as I don’t want to look like an infant child) but not as much. I think this bikini top was around £8, which was an amazing price! This top also has the option of having a halter neck or a strapless design – exactly the same as the previous Debenhams bikini! I could only get the bikini bottoms in Size 8 and unfortunately they had to squeeze my bum in – so I returned them and hoped they had a larger size, but I’m still trying to hunt them down!
The last bikini that I have for you is also from Primark – this is one of the floaty, swing material tops. I’m not really sure what else I could call this, at this moment in time but I thought this was really cute when I tried it on! It has a layer underneath the front part, to make you feel more comfortable and has a thin layer of padding. You can also untie the straps on both top and bottom, which I had to do to make the bottoms fit more comfortably! I feel that this bikini balances out my proportions a bit, without obviously ‘boosting’ anything – it just creates a bit more depth, I guess, which is great! I have a feeling that this bikini was around £6 for the top and bottoms together, which was amazing!
I have ordered another bikini to try out from ASOS, and I am also thinking of trying one from Topshop and Next – so prepare yourselves for another bikini post! I will also be writing a big post on what I am taking to Australia with me, and I might do a condensed ‘clothing’ post too!
