Everybody loves prepping for their summer holidays, or even just those lazy and long-anticipated days at the beach. For the ladies though it leads the question of whether you want to pick a bikini or swimsuit.
Both obviously have their merits, and it is nice that we get a great choice, so the easiest way to decide is often to consider your beachside needs. To set you on the right path for those sunny days whether it’s at home or somewhere more exotic, check out our advice below.
What do you need it for?
Not all days at the beach are the same – some of us love to lounge the days away on a sun lounger, others are playing and building castles with the kids, and others are total water babies. With this in mind, you need to consider how you anticipate spending your days at the beach.
If you know you’re most likely to be sunbathing and reading book, then a bikini is going to be ideal, and if you love a tan, then the skimpier the better. If you prefer being a bit more active, then a swimsuit might be the better option, or at least a sportier bikini.
How much support do you need?
One of the most important things to think about when shopping for swimwear is how much support you need. For instance if you’re a bustier lady, a halter-neck bikini with inbuilt support can be the perfect way to feel comfortable without feeling like you’re covering up. Lots of swimsuits offer smoothing and slimming hidden magic too, which can be perfect way to sneak a bit of added confidence. When swimsuits offer this kind of support, it also often makes them less see-through too.
Have fun picking out your swimwear for your sunshine holidays – just remember to pick the right style for you!
