Bikini season is (nearly) upon us, which means it’s time to start thinking about how you want to look in your swimsuit. Whether you’re heading to the beach or poolside, having the right bikini can make all the difference between feeling confident and comfortable–or just plain uncomfortable.

A good bikini isn’t just an essential for the beach. It can be used for festivals, or for casual wear to pool parties, or even if you’re heading to clubs like Ocean Beach in Ibiza, you’ll need a good bikini set.

So, with all that in mind lets look at the tips to buy the right bikini for you….

Determine Your Body Type

Determine your body type

There are three main body types: apple, pear and hourglass.

Apple-shaped women have a larger upper body and smaller lower half; pear-shaped women have wider hips and narrower shoulders; hourglass-shaped women have an even distribution between their bust, waist and hips.

Choose a bikini that flatters your body type

  • If you’re an apple shape: choose a high waisted bikini bottom with extra coverage on the sides to balance out your top half.
  • If you’re a pear shape: opt for a strappy top with low cut bottoms that elongate the legs.
  • If you’re an hourglass shape: go for a halter top paired with high waisted bottoms or shorts that will draw attention away from the tummy area

Consider Coverage

The first thing to consider when buying a bikini is the level of coverage it provides. There are three main types:

  • Mini or micro bikinis that cover mostly just the nipples and a very small area of your breast (also offering zero support). They also have a very small brief, usually a thong. Bikini line maintenance essential.
  • Brazilian cut or smaller tops that cover more than just your nipples, but not your entire chest (this can be called various things, including “half cup” or “triangle”)
  • Full coverage bikinis – these tend to cover the full cup of your breast

Choose the Right Colour and Pattern

When it comes to choosing a bikini, colour and pattern are the most important factors. You want something that complements your skin tone and flatter your body type. If you have an hourglass figure, for example, then bold prints may not be right for you because they can make you look wider than usual.
If in doubt about what colours or patterns work best with your complexion, ask someone who knows their stuff (such as a stylist) for advice on what colours work well with yours!

Pay Attention to Details

  • Pay attention to details.
    A bikini is more than just a few pieces of fabric stitched together and thrown on your body. The right details can add interest and dimension, while the wrong ones can make you look frumpy or out of shape.
  • Think about how you want your bikini to fit on your body, then look for ties at the neckline, waistband or hips that will help it do so. If you have a larger bust size, look for styles that have ruffles along the top edge of their cups; this will draw attention away from any spillage over the sides of those cups (and give them a bit more support). If you’re petite-framed but curvy in all the right places (i.e., not flat-chested), consider buying one with cutouts along its sides so as not to hide away any curves under too much fabric!

Try on Different Styles

If you want to find the right bikini for your body, it’s important to try on different styles. This will help you figure out what kind of coverage is best for your body type and how much skin you’re comfortable showing off.
There are many different cuts and coverage levels available in bikinis:

  • Low-rise bikinis sit low on the hips and generally have minimal coverage in front (they can even be strapless). They’re great if you want something that shows off your midriff but doesn’t offer much more than that.
  • Mid-rise bikinis sit at or slightly above waist level, offering moderate coverage on both sides. They’re good if you don’t like wearing high-waisted bottoms or want something modest enough for everyday wear but still flattering on curves such as hips or thighs–or if those areas tend to get chilly easily!

Consider Practicality

When choosing a bikini, it’s important to consider what you will be doing with it. If you’re planning on swimming or sunbathing in your new swimwear, then practicality should be at the top of your list. You’ll want something that is comfortable and durable enough for use in water as well as land.

If you’re going to be using your bikini for both purposes (swimming and sunbathing), try looking for a style that has removable pads on the top so that they can easily come off when not needed in order to make room for tanning cream.

Tips for Buying a Bikini in the UK

  1. Shop online
    The UK has a wealth of online retailers, who can offer a wide selection of bikinis in all shapes, sizes and styles. The best thing about shopping online is that you can try on your bikini before buying it–and if it doesn’t fit perfectly (or at all), you won’t have to worry about going back to the store for an exchange or refund. This means less hassle for you and more time spent enjoying your new swimwear!
  2. Check sizing charts carefully
    When buying swimwear from an unfamiliar brand, always check their sizing chart first so that you know exactly what size to order based on your measurements; otherwise there’s no guarantee that they’ll fit correctly when they arrive at your door step! Also remember that some brands may use different terminology than others: For example “XS” might mean something completely different depending on which company makes them.”

Remember, the most important thing when buying a bikini is to feel good in it. You might want to choose a bikini that is trendy, but if it doesn’t make you feel comfortable and confident, then it’s not the right one for you. Don’t be afraid to try on different styles and colours until you find the one that works best for your body type and skin tone.

Another thing to keep in mind is that your bikini should make you feel good about yourself. Don’t worry too much about what other people think or say; as long as you feel confident and comfortable, that’s all that matters.

In addition to finding the right bikini, you should also take care of it properly. Make sure to follow the care instructions on the label, and rinse it thoroughly after each use to remove chlorine or salt water. This will help extend the life of your bikini and keep it looking good for longer.

Overall, buying the right bikini can be an enjoyable experience if you know what to look for. By considering your body type, coverage, colour and pattern, details, and practicality, you can find a bikini that flatters your figure and makes you feel confident and comfortable. So go ahead and hit the beach or pool with your new bikini, and enjoy the summer sun in style!
