Get in my Wardrobe: Bikini's

Hey Lovelies,

So you're probably thinking why on earth am I writing about bikini's in January? Well after learning for a few years now, never leave your bikini shopping till the summer or when you're about to go on holiday because I've found that your size is never in stock and all the nice bikini's are sold out. Learning my lesson, if I spy a bikini that I like and know that I'm going on holiday that year I try to snap it up as quickly as possible.

Of course all the summer stuff is out in the shops already and I've already spied some blimmin' gorgeous bikini's that I know will be a fine accompaniment for my holiday to the USA in the summer! My favourite places to buy bikini's from are Topshop (expensive but pretty) New Look ( I LOVE the Kelly Brook range) Primark (quite good quality and usually under £10) and River Island (always have gorgeous styles)

Now everyone has different needs when it comes to buying bikini's, not everyone goes for the same style after a few years of trying different styles and cringing in some holiday pictures, I think I've finally found the bikini style that suits me the most. I love strapless bikini tops with frilled bottoms, a perfect combination that makes me actually feel comfortable when on the beach and not self-conscious. Now I'm not really blessed in the chest department (I hope to God my tutor isn't reading this post!) but I am blessed when it comes to the bum! So these styles really help boost and hide assets lets just say!

Bikini 3: New Look
Being a total girly girl I also love bright (shows off your tan) floral prints, I always try to avoid buying black and white bikini's although they're great for making you look tanned, I'm always scared a white bikini will go see through, I've seen enough of these errors around the pool to be put off for life and black can be a little boring sometimes. Now if you read my beauty blog you'll probably know I'm a total tanorexix and when I go on holiday I am OBSESSED with getting a tan, I'm usually one of the first by the pool in the morning and one of the last at night. So strapless bikini's are brilliant for me as it means no tan lines. They're not only pretty but practical too. If you think you have a similar shape to me and haven't tried this style of bikini's out before then give them a go!

What's your favourite type of bikini, oh and don't go buying all of these, leave some for me for when I'm sunning myself in Miami ;)
