Nicky's top bikini shopping tips - Bikini lesson 1 - know your shape!
TIP 1. Know your shape – Athletic? Are you Athletic? Pear shape? Apple or Pear? Are you rocking an athletic physique? Woo hoo – all those hard hours packed in at the gym have paid off! Hanging out with celebrity bikini icon Cameron Diaz. Again a perfect physique for bikini dressing – pretty much any style will work for you, however the main aim is to create the illusion of extra curves! Detailed bikini tops – look for ruffles, gathers or padding to create extra shape. I’d avoid bandeau’s – as they can highlight your athletic figure. Look for bold colours and prints! Tie side or roll top briefs are spot on – just avoid boy cut briefs, as again they’ll just enhance your athletic shape. Again totally on trend – try a high cut bikini bottom, this will elongate your legs and as an added bonus this shape is totally hot right now! A fuller tie side also has the same effect – not only can you wear as high or low as you want, the tie side at the hip, in a print it will create the visual affect we’re looking for!

Bikini Tip 1. Know your shape – Hourglass? Are you Hourglass shape, Athletic? Pear shape or Apple shape? Are you are the ultimate sought after bikini shape – the Hourglass? Well yes to you!! Every ladies dream physique – and sitting alongside the bikini beauty Kourtney Kardashian. The perfect shape for bikini dressing – pretty much any style will work for you, as long as they don’t knock you out of proportion! Rather than mixing and matching prints and plains – your physique is better suited to all print, or all plain. Bikini tops with slightly thicker straps are best for women with bigger boobs, as they’ll give you more support and will absolutely be more comfortable for you! Skinny neck ties are a no go, as a sore neck is not the holiday accessory you want. If you want a more European look – slide the gold trims off of the Daydreamer bikini top! Under wiring in bikini tops will also help give more support – we’re launching the Spirit dancer bikini top this summer especially for you gorgeous ladies who want a bit more va va voom, so watch this space. I’d avoid padded bikini tops as this will make you look bigger on top, and it’s all about balance! Top bikini bottom tip is to avoid a tie side, as this can make your hips look wider – so go for a shape like the Sanddancer or Seasurfer.
Nicky's top bikini shopping tips - Bikini lesson 1, know your shape!
Bikini Lesson 1. Know your shape – Apple? Are you a Apple shape? Hourglass, Athletic or Pear? Are you are a classic apple shape – No this doesn’t mean that you are carrying a massive beer keg around your waist. It simply means that there isn’t as much difference between your hips, stomach and ribs. Looking for some celebrity inspiration – both Catherine Zeta Jones and Elizabeth Hurley fall into this body category! Not bad eh! The key to clever bikini picking for apples – is to draw the eye line away from the upper half of the body, and drawing the eye down to the lower part of her body. So in complete contract to our pear friends out there, I’d recommend printed bikini bottoms, and a plain top. Any bikini top shape is great for you – so either the Sanddancer bandeau or the Daydreamer are perfect shapes for you to try! Skimpy and stringy bikini tops aren’t a problem – as they automatically accentuate your bottom half – so try away!! Again totally on trend – try a high cut bikini bottom, this will elongate your legs and as an added bonus this shape is totally hot right now! A fuller tie side also has the same effect – not only can you wear as high or low as you want, the tie side at the hip, in a print it will create the visual affect we’re looking for!
Nicky's top tips for buying the perfect bikini! Bikini lesson 1 - know your shape...
Bikini Lesson 1 - Know your shape – Pear? Are you a pear shape? Apple shape? Hourglass or Athletic? Are you are a classic pear shape – like the gorgeous Rachel Bilson, Tiny up top, and curvier through the hips and thighs? Show off your tiny waist and highlight your favourite features by being clever with colour and shape!! Want to draw attention to your boobs? What about picking a printed bikini top, and going for plain bottoms to draw the eye line up? Either the Sanddancer bandeau or the Daydreamer are perfect shapes for you to try! Avoid string bikini tops – whilst you don’t need to worry about the support factor, super skimpy stringy styles can accentuate your bottom half and make it look even fuller. Saying this – following in the Kardashian ladies style, and Kylie Jenner – this might be exactly the look you are going for J Totally on trend – try a high cut bikini bottom, this will elongate your legs and as an added bonus this shape is totally hot right now! A fuller tie side also has the same effect – not only can you wear as high or low as you want, the tie side at the hip, makes your hips look slimmer!
Leopard print.....don't mind if I do ;)
It goes without saying, Leopard Print is a natural predator in the fashion world. You show up wearing leopard and you’re instantly in another league, placed on a pedestal for what most people consider being ‘brave’. Lately, however, we’ve seen more of this stealth statement print than what’s commonly expected and I think it’s purrfect for making a splash on the beach! As seen on Kendall Jenner, Kylie Jenner, Devin brugman, Gigi, Hadid, Hailey Baldwin and our ultimate beach babe Ashley Graham! Steal their style in the Amur print and be ready to make waves.
