Tips for buying the perfect bikini
Are you totally in the mood to get your wardrobe summer-ready? For example, light jeans, skirts, statement tops and summer sandals or sneakers. It’s also a good idea to start thinking about your current bikini collection. Is it completely up to date or could you use something new? We give you some tips for how you succeed in your quest for the perfect bikini.
Know your body shape
As you begin your search for that perfect bikini, it’s useful to keep your body shape in mind. That way, you can shop in a more focused way and you’ll be less likely to make a bad buy. Looking to hide a little belly? If so, choose a high waist brief combined with an eye-catching top to emphasise your upper body.
The right colour
Do you have very pale skin? Then go for pastel tones or other soft hues. If you already have a nice colour, you’re a lucky girl who’ll look good in lots of different colours. You may already have a lot of black in your collection. If so, why not go for a striking colour?! Do you dare?
We love bikini crop top shimmer.
What is the bikini for?
What are your plans for your next holiday? If you are planning an active holiday, it’s best to go for a sporty bikini or swimsuit that will stay in place. Are you a real sun worshipper? If so, choose a bikini with the fewest possible straps in order to avoid tan lines. Or perhaps you are going for a striking look that you can also wear at a festival: a crop top bikini or swimsuit would fit the bill!
Test your bikini
Of course you’ll only really know how a bikini feels when you wear it, but there are a few things you can do to try it out beforehand. Lift your arms up over your head to see whether the top rises up. You can also check out how it fits when you sit down, stand and run. For the best advice, you can always ask a member of staff in one of our Hunkemöller stores.
