You’ve heard it before, but I’ll say it again. Want to know how to get a bikini body this summer?
PUT ON A BIKINI. the end.
Every single one of us has a unique and beautiful body. And just because it doesn’t look the same as someone else’s, doesn’t mean it’s not as fabulous. We need to stop worrying, stop comparing and just start living! If you’re in a pair of togs, chances are you at the beach, or by the pool – so enjoy that time with your family or friends, and don’t waste any energy worrying about what you look like.
And trust me, I’ll be taking my own advice when we head off on a little family holiday to Vanuatu next week. It will be my first real summer post baby, and sure, I’m probably not as confident as I used to be wearing my togs, but I’m going to try really hard to get over that.
Part of my mission to do that, is to find some togs that I really love, like REALLY love. And I know that quite a few of you guys are starting to think about summer swimwear too, so I thought I’d put together my top five cozzies to feel amazing and confident this summer!
SHOP THE SWIMMERS AND WHY I LOVE THEM…
top left: Next mesh one piece from EziBuy $59 – Show off some flesh, but with added support of the mesh. This one piece is sexy, but gives you coverage if you want it. Classic black will never date, and you can run around all day with the kids on the sand feeling secure in this cozzie.
top right: Boohoo “barbados” underwire bikini top $14 + high-waisted briefs $14 – Love, love the underwire support in this little set. Just because you’ve got big boobs, or you’re a mum (hello breastfeeding sag haha!) doesn’t mean you can’t do strapless, just look for something with added underwire support. Add the high-waisted pant, and you’ve got a great set for under $40! (plus you can mix and match you top and bottom size to suit!)
bottom left: Lilly & Lime Dcup+ Full Cup Bikini top $80 + high-waisted bottoms $40 – If you have big boobs and you haven’t heard of Lilly & Lime, your life is about to change! This Aussie design due have created a range of fun, sexy swimwear that actually fits and supports a bigger bust, without looking like a nana! Cups go upto a HH!
bottom middle: Kmart splice bodice one piece $24 – Good old Kmart always delivers when it comes to togs! This is a great shape if you are smaller in the bust and want a little boost. It will also help define your waist (even if you don’t think you have one)
bottom right: Boohoo.com “Miami” flamingo frill one piece $28 – How could I not include this gorgeous number! IF you want something a bit more fun, but still with some tummy coverage, this is for you! The top even gives you some arm coverage if you want that too! plus flamingos! hello!
So there are 5 fun pieces, all below $100 too, that you will really feel good in this summer. I would be quite happy in any of these, so if I can rock them, so can you!
Want to know my little insider beach-body confidence secret too? FAKE BAKE BABY! A little bit of fake tan goes a long way to make you feel more comfortable beach-side too. My current fave is Little Honey NZ, and you can bet your bottom dollar I’ll be stocking up before we jump on the plane next week too!
So remember, what your body looks like in swimmers (or just in general actually) is nobody’s business but your own. If you love the togs, wear the togs – simple as that!
