Bikini Body Guide With Boohoo

It's that time of year again where we all start thinking about the summer, our summer holidays and most importantly what we are going to be wearing when were sunbathing in the scorching sun and getting a good dose of Vitamin D. I know for one how hard it can be to find that perfect bikini and bikini shopping is no easy task, I'm sure you will agree.

When shopping around for bikini's there is no doubt about it finding that perfect bikini can be difficult, because lets face it walking around in a bikini (holiday or no holiday) is pretty much like parading around in your underwear, which I think puts not only pressure on us to find the right bikini, but to look amazing in one too - We all want to show off our best bits, embrace our femininity and dare I say look damn sexy in one too. 

To find that perfect bikini, I think it's really important to be aware of your body shape and pick the right one for you - which its a whole lot easier said than done. However I do have some tips for finding that perfect bikini, which will hopefully help you in your search. 

Busty/ Hourglass Shape

First let me start with you ladies that have been blessed with a larger bust and have your curves in all the right places. When picking out a swimwear for you holiday you want something that is going to support you and keep all your private bits firmly in place. The best thing you can do is avoid those bikinis that just hold you in place with a few bits of string that you tie up. Halter neck bikinis bikinis are going to keep your bust nicely in place whilst enabling you to show of one your best assets at the same time. Another great bikini style too look out for is bikini tops that have under-wire in them and are built just like a bra, again enabling you to enhance your features whilst keeping them safe at the same time. 

Athletic Build

If your lacking some of those curves that the majority of women  secretly want, there is no need to be envious at all; For those of you have an athletic body shape, there is a lot of bikinis for you to choose from and you can get away with going a bit more wild and free in terms of deign, pattern and style. Strappy and bandeau bikinis are going to look great on your body and the best bit about these bikinis is that because they are on the skimpier side, you have a lot less tan lines to be worrying about - bonus! Not only are bandeau bikinis going to look stunning on you, you can also get away with choosing bikinis with embellishments, fringing and other cute accessories on them which are really going to stand out and emphasise your amazing figure.  

Bootyful or Tummy Conscious?

When it comes to wearing a bikini, there are going to be those of you who really dislike showing off your stomach, but at the same time, really don't want to wear a one piece and why should you? Ladies there are bikinis for you too that will help suck that bum and tum in and I'm not talking about those ghastly and unfashionable tankinis. The bikinis that I have in mind are the ones that have those high rise bottoms and bikini tops that sit a little lower. I love how these type of bikinis have a vintage retro feel to them and paired with the right sunglasses you will look a gorgeous sun-kissed beauty sitting by the pool side. The high rise bottoms not only take attention away from your stomach but also draws more attention to your booty which you know is worth showing off! 


If your really not one for bikinis then I think its a little God send that the one piece swimming costume has been revolutionised over the last few years and has been one of the best ways to make a bold fashion statement at the pool side; No matter what body shape or size you are, there is something to suit every one. The classic swimming costume no longer has to be boring and can make you look like a beach goddess, especially when you have tat beautiful golden tan. Boohoo have really gone all out when it comes to the designs of their swimsuits and below are a selection of my favourites, each one catering to the different body shapes that I've mentioned. 

Prepare For The Beach

All of us beautiful ladies have a variety of body shapes and I know for a fact, regardless of what body shape and type we have, none of us are ever truly satisfied with the way we look. We all have those areas that we wish were better, bigger, flatter or just not there all together. However there are some simple things that you can do right now to get your body looking good and bikini ready. Want curves, a rounded booty and killer legs? Start squatting regularly and tone that bottom, trust me you'll start seeing changes in no time at all. Is it your tummy that you're worried about showing off? Start going for long walks or running outside, add in some simple crunches and sit ups at home and you'll feel more confident. Now is the perfect time of year to start doing something about it. So many of us moan about exercise, but I can guarantee we moan about our bodies a lot more, so start incorporating some simple exercises into your daily routine two or three times a week you'll be looking bikini ready in no time. 

No matter what bikini you choose to go for, one thing I do know is that how confident you feel wearing one is all about your inner confidence. If you feel that you look amazing and strut your stuff with pride then any bikini is going to look amazing on you. You have to find one that you feel good in, and no matter what body shape or type you have find your feet and wear it with confidence.  Remember ladies, confidence is sexy and empowering so if you feel you look good the rest of the world will think so too. You should always wear the bikini and never let the bikini wear you. Now you know what type of bikini to go for, head over to the Boohoo Website for their full range of bikinis and beachwear.
