Swimwear Wishlist 2016

Swimwear Wishlist 2016

I am sure you are reading the title of this post and wondering what is she on about. Swimwear in January? Has she gone nuts? Lol. No I haven’t gone nuts, and yes buying swimwear in January, is a good idea. This is the best time to stock up on your swimwear and swimming accessories in time for the holidays, because most people are not shopping for them at the moment, so they are usually seriously discounted in most stores, and with the January sales still on, more discount peeps.

I have been window shopping, and I have my eye on some one-piece Swimsuits at the moment. I find I get the best bargains in department stores, because there are so many HOT options to choose from.

I am more comfortable wearing a one-piece swimsuit, than a two-piece, because the one-piece shows off what I want showing off, and hides all that needs to be hidden. It is a perfect piece and I am lusting over these 6 beauties below:

 

Biba Summer Tropics Large Cup Tummy Control Swimsuit £55 £22

Biba Summer Tropics Large Cup Tummy Control Swimsuit

A love the multi-colours and the busy print on this beauty. The fact that it has some form of tummy control gives it extra points. The halter-neckline flatters my body shape a lot. This one-piece should be in every woman’s holiday suitcase this year.

 

Dickins & Jones Boat Print Swimsuit £45 £18

This Dickins & Jones swimsuit is simply beautiful. I love the very light price tag of £18, this is what I call a bargain, getting a £45 swimsuit for £18, perfect. The navy blue colour is one of my favourite colours, and I love the fact that it has a padded bra for support. Perfect for the not so busty ladies.

 

Linea Weekend Zig Zag Halter Neck Swimsuit £50 £20

This is another swimsuit I like. I love the print and colour, it also comes with a padded bra, which is fab. This will look good on me, and with a price tag of £20, I am seriously considering this piece, plus anything Linea is always top quality.

 

Speedy Sculpture Crystalshine Printed Swimsuit £56 £28

Speedo Sculpture Crystalshine Printed Swimsuit

This swimsuit is on my wish list because it is so different from the rest. The brand, Speedo, is known for their activewear, so I guess that is why this swimsuit looks completely different from the rest. It is not as stylish as the others, but I like it. Probably not a holiday piece, but it will be perfect for the gym, and for the kids swimming lessons. Love it.

 

Ann Summers Ocean Fringe Swimsuit £25

This one-piece is so SEXY, but then again, it’s an Ann Summers piece, and most of their pieces scream SEX in a posh way. This will be perfect in a private pool/beach kind of thing, not sure I will be bold enough to rock this in a public pool, but you never know. I love the fringe detail, it gives the piece an edgy look.

Which is your favourite? Drop me a comment please.

Thanks for reading and have a WICKED Friday. Be safe.

Swimwear Trends For 2015

It’s that time of year where we start to crave a holiday. If you’re lucky enough to have already booked your next getaway, you’ve probably already turned your attention to swimwear.
From bikinis to swimsuits, there’s so many styles, designs and prints to choose from. To help you select the best option for your shape, we’ve enlisted the help of Danielle Kisby from leading lingerie and swimwear retailer, Bras Galore. She’ll provide her expert opinion on this season’s hottest trends.

Fringing
Popular in the 80s and 90s, fringing has re-emerged in time for summer 2015. Shorter fringed bikinis are great for adding subtle detail to your swimsuit, while longer styles can create a more dramatic look.
Speaking of the trend, Danielle said: “Channelling boho chic, fringing is one of my favourite trends this season. It’s great for minimising the appearance of a larger bust, as well as disguising those pesky cellulite-prone areas on the hips. A fringed bikini is the perfect alternative to heavily printed swimwear. Choose a plain option to remain subtly stylish.”
High-waisted
Favourites with everyone from curvalicious Beyoncé to athletic Taylor Swift, high-waisted bikinis are a popular choice this season. Offering more coverage than your typical string bikini yet oozing sexiness, the style is reminiscent of 1950s pin-up girls.
“A 1950s-style bikini is perfect for showing off those va va voom curves!” says Danielle. “The high-waisted bottoms are great for highlighting an hourglass figure, and are incredibly flattering across problem stomach areas.
“If you are blessed with a larger bust, choose a bra- or halterneck-style bikini top. These are much more preferable to flimsy string designs, which can offer little support. Ditsy prints like polka dots are an absolute must for this style. You can wear them year after year!”

Sporty
Sports luxe has been a huge trend for a few seasons now, but it seems 2015 is the year it really starts to dominate the swimwear market. Sports bra-inspired high-neck tops complete with mesh detailing are big news, as are bright block colours with contrasting black trims.
Danielle says: “A sports inspired bikini is perfect for lazy days in the sun and splashing around in the pool. However, the shape isn’t for everyone. While they are incredibly flattering for athletic and boyish shapes, the high-neck cut can make ladies with a bigger bust look top-heavy.
“If you do have larger breasts and you are considering this style, I’d advise choosing one with mesh detailing to reduce the coverage over your bust. That way, you can have the best of both worlds.”
Plunge swimsuit
If you’re looking for something a little sexier, choose a swimsuit with a deep plunge neck. While you may think you’re covering up in a bathing suit, the plunge neck is sure to grab attention.
Danielle comments: “Plunge swimsuits are great as they can be worn by women of any size. Suits that offer little support around the bust are best suited to women will smaller busts. If you have larger breasts, choose a style that offers additional support to prevent squashing and provide an extra lift.
“Because the plunge adds detail to the swimsuit, choose a classic Ibiza-ready colour like black, white or red. Team with a floppy sunhat for ultimate glamour.”
Which styles will you be hitting the beach in this summer?
