Yes ladies, it's that time of the year again..the season that we've been working towards for weeks on end and avoiding (or in my case, pretending to avoid) all delicious snacks for: BIKINI SEASON! Now I'm a bit of a bikini hoarder and over the years have picked up so many fabulous pieces that I find it hard to pick what to take on holiday with me. However, lately I've mostly been attracted to high-waisted bikinis. This style is great for all, especially if like me you're a little self-conscious over whether you've had one slice of cake too many. That's because the high-waisted bottoms hold you in in all the right places but still embraces your curves. I'm curvier on my bottom half but instead of wearing teeny weeny bikini bottoms that might starkly contrast against my rounder derriere, I love wearing high-waisted bottoms that actually compliment and accentuate my shape. And I believe this bikini style does so for most woman, whether you're looking to add curves to your frame or just work what you've already got. Perfect style for every woman!
High-waisted bikinis are quite a retro piece, rising to fame on pin up girls in the 60s and 70s. As such, they scream sophisticated femininity and elegance. However, in the last couple of years they've made a comeback and both high end designers and high street shops have been stocking printed pieces. For me, this is perfect because cool prints keep it looking young, while still ticking the classy checkbox. Over the years, Topshop have stocked some of my favorite prints e.g. Aztec and tropical. Urban Outfitters also do some great ones and if you go at the right time, you can get quite a good deal on them (the neon polkadot bikini was just £15....score!!!!). Anyway, that's enough for now...there's only so much one could babble on about a bikini style for lol! And tbh you might not have even read this far haha. If you have I commend you...must mean that high-waisted bikinis are the one for you then! ;) xo
