Top Style Tips From our Personal Stylist Team On How To Find The Perfect Bikini For You!...

The bikinis have landed...in a store near you  with every shape, style, print and option imaginable. All bikini bases are covered. Now the most important issue is to cover yourself in one, with confidence and style success.

It really is a matter of personal preference in terms of the colour or print you choose.

Things to bear in mind are:

  • What swimwear have you currently got and what summer clothes you have as well.
  • If you already have a few favourite bikinis then it is worth thinking about how any new editions to your swimwear collection can be mixed and matched.

The same goes for your summer clothes:

  • Think about the colours and prints you have for tops, shorts, skirt and dresses.
  • Your aim is to create summer holiday wardrobe that can be packed in a jiffy for a week away.
  • Base your bikini choices on fitting in with what you already have or introducing an additional colour that will add to what you have.
  • Black and white bikinis are a useful choice as they work so well with other colours and prints.

The next option is to find bikinis that work for your body shape. Remember these simple handy hints.

  • If you are busty then look for tops that give you lift and support. Figleaves is a good site to search for bikini tops in your bust size.
  • If you have a bit of a tummy then a tankini style or an all in one with ruche detail over the stomach area might give your more beach body confidence. Lands End are an online shop with a wide selection of swimsuits designed to flatter the figure. But don't forget to search the high street for bikini bottoms that are high waisted and designed to flatten the tummy. These retro looks are a fabulous alternative to the swimsuit and tankini.
  • Halter necks will draw the eye upwards away from the hip and thigh area. Equally, use a plain coloured bikini bottom in a dark colour mixed with a bright or patterned bikini top to create a slimmer lower half and emphasise your slender upper body.

River Island, Dorothy Perkins, M&S, John Lewis, Debenhams, House of Fraser, Topshop and H&M all have a wide selection of swimwear and accessories from hats to beach bags, and beach cover ups.

There are bikinis in every colour and pattern, although this season the tropical print from palm leaves to pineapples dominates.

Before you go off for your bikini shop:

  • Make a list of what you need
  • Itemise the colour and print selection you'd prefer and any accessories you might also need.
  • Take your time and be prepared to try on the items before you buy.
  • Do follow the shops instruction in terms of trying bikinis on and also remember the harsh lights and the stark mirrors of the changing rooms aren't always the most flattering!

Which ever style you choose remember the fact you will be wearing a bikini in the sun and it will be the perfect moment to relax and unwind.

Client Testimonials

I found out that the clothes I was always buying did not create a good image for my shape or age. If only I had invested in a personal stylist years ago!

It really was time to get my wardrobe into shape. My personal stylist knew what worked on me and what didn't. The advice was invaluable and now I have an outfit for every occasion!

The whole experience has changed my perspective about me and my life and my clothes. I feel so much more confident and I can't thank you enough.

She knew exactly what would suit me. I tried on outfits I would never have thought of. It was fantastic to go shopping with a true expert.

Every time I go out I feel brilliant and it's so easy to dress now. I have had so many compliments which has really boosted my self-esteem.

I now know what to wear and when which is so helpful having just had a baby. My body shape has changed but I now know I can still look good. My husband is very happy too!

She's done things to my eyes that remind me of pictures taken 25 years ago!!! I would recommend the make-up masterclass to anyone. The advice is truly fantastic.

Every experience was over and above my expectations and something I will cherish for a very long time. I can't thank the whole team enough - my personal stylist, my make-up artist and my hair stylist were fantastic, and the organisation of the services were flawless.

It's the little changes that make all the difference, and you've raised her self-appreciation and confidence, great work. It's the best Christmas present I have ever bought my wife.
