UNDERWEAR.CO.UK – OUR BIKINI BUYING GUIDE
Make a splash by the pool and beyond with a gorgeous new bikini.
A bikini is a two piece swimwear solution ideal for perfecting your tan on holiday. This popular style comes with a bra inspired top in a range of styles to suit your boobs, and matching bottoms to complete the look. Whether you’re looking for pretty patterns or sleek colours, choose from a range of bikinis to complete your holiday wardrobe.
Choosing the right style:
Bikinis come in a variety of bra-inspired styles to both flatter your figure and support your boobs. Here’s a round-up of some of the most popular styles:
Padded/Underwired – designed with underwired cups for extra support and uplift, and with optional padded cups for a naturally rounded shape
Bandeau/Bustier – these strapless styles push your boobs up for a vintage pin-up look
Halterneck – ideal for bigger boobs, this style comes with halter straps to provide extra support and uplift
Triangle – perfect for smaller busts, these simple bikinis come without wires or padding for a lightweight feel
Matching bikini bottoms will complete your bikini to perfection, so go for a thong for minimal tan marks, a classic brief for a classic look, or boyshorts for a little extra coverage.
Choosing the right size:
For non-wired styles choose your bikini based on your usual clothing size. If your bikini has underwired or padded cups, it should fit as well as your usual bra, so look for comfortably placed straps, good cup coverage, with no overspill or ‘double boobs.’
