1. Choose moulding
Invest in a bikini that offers shape and support in the form of moulded cups, gripper tape and structured boning. This will define and lift your bust, magically slimming the waste. Moulded bikinis will hold everything in place, even when you swim and will really help you to look and feel great.
2. Know your colour story
Make sure the colour of your bikini really compliments your skin-tone. Warmer tones with darker blonde or light brown hair will suit oranges, reds and golden shades. A cooler skin tone will look great in this season’s bright electric blue. If in doubt, on trend indigo is an all round winner and is less harsh on the skin than black.
3. Tie it up
The magic of a tie bikini pant is the adjustable fit they create to avoid any un-wanted bulges on the hips. The ties also create extra interest and can really help to make your legs look longer.
4. Be a cover-girl
A beautiful kaftan or cover-up is an absolute holiday must-have. Quick drying lightweight fabrics and stylish designs make kaftans perfect for throwing on over your bikini. Protect your skin from the sun, for those cooler moments or for heading to the beach bar for that sun downer you’ve been dreaming of…
5. Use the finer details
Choose details such as a twist or banded pant to soften and flatten the line of the stomach. High necks will flatter your shoulders and spaghetti straps add length and bring balance.
