8 Great Bikinis

Last week we gave you a feature on the best one-piece swimsuits your money could buy. Whether you prefer how they look or you’d rather not expose yourself too much, it’s always nice to know that you have that option. Sometimes though, a bikini can’t be beaten. And this morning, as women everywhere applaud this one lady who donned a bikini despite having a less than perfect stomach (who, other than supermodels, can really claim to love their midriffs?), we’re encouraging you to wear whatever you damn well please. Behold, our pick of the best two-piece bikinis on the market right now.

Be pretty in pink by the pool with this textured longline bikini with high-waisted pants. €28 for the set, Topshop.com

For those with particularly large boobies, this bikini with lace frill will cover your cups, giving you a less exposed feeling. €14.99 and €9.99, H&M.

Balcony bra options are always flattering. This is quite the sporty option from River Island, available on Asos.com too.

Sometimes it’s far more fun to mix and match with separates. We love these patterned bottoms – ideal for covering your tummy – from Asos, €34.16.

If it’s more cleavage you’re after, a bra that opens and closes at the front often gives you an added boost. So too does a padded halter, as you can see below. This one’s pretty, from Victoria’s Secret. $30.50 online.

Super sexy halter bikini, also from Victoria’s Secret. $58.50.

For the curvier shape who finds one piece swimsuits too confining, this breton number gives plenty of support. €27, M&S.
