TOPSHOP Mirror Floral Bikini Set

DSC00205What a surprise, another bikini post! I have finally purchased my last bikini (that’s what I’m telling myself, anyway..) and I found this beauty in Topshop for £34! You can get it from: HEREDSC00206This bikini is so gorgeous, I loved it as soon as I saw it! It is a longline/bralette style bikini, which comes with some really flattering high waisted bottoms! This bikini doesn’t have any padding in it, but the cups are moulded for a more rounded shape!DSC00207There is a clip-clasp as the fastening, unlike my other one (which is easier for me compared to the last one – but that’s personal choice, although the other one looked nicer!). You can also take the straps off too, which is super handy!DSC00208I adore everything about this bikini! The pattern is so fresh and pretty, whilst still keeping a summery feel along with it! I cannot wait to wear this in Australia!DSC00209 DSC00210The bottoms are a really nice fit, although you can’t buy them separately! Preferably, I tend to buy the bottoms in a size up, because I have a larger bottom half whilst being petite on top. But these still fit really nicely and comfortably – I do think the size up could possibly be a little too loose anyway!

These have a really flattering high waist design, so it’ll suck the belly in whilst still keeping those butt cheeks at bay!DSC00211I believe that this is a brand new bikini for Topshop, so it should be available on the website for quite a while now! (Hopefully!),

Has everyone finished their summer clothes shopping now? Or waiting for the sales?
Let me know if you’re going anywhere nice this summer!

The Bikini Post! (Debenhams & Primark)

DSC00075

It is getting closer and closer to my Australia trip, so I thought that I would do a quick, cheeky little post on the bikinis that I have so far!
I thought I had more than this, but don’t you worry, I have had my eyes caught on another few which are in the post, at the moment!

Ok, so firstly I thought that I would tell you a little about my body shape (cringe). I am 5 foot 3, have quite a petite build, small top half and a larger bottom half. That’s that, briefly put! (BRIEFLY put.. funny me).

Moving on – the first bikini that I decided to get was this gorgeous navy floral padded bikini top from Debenhams. This was £26 and can be found HERE. This bikini top has a serious amount of padding going on, which yes I would like a little bit of assistance in that area, but boy it’s a LOT of padding! But still, I really liked the pattern and I feel pretty snug and secure in this one!
It has two options of wear, you can wear the top as a halterneck or strapless – as the straps fold down and back, into a thicker back piece which covers over the original back strap. I think this is great, as I tend to lose straps if I take them off and this one actually stays up without the straps on! This is definitely my favourite bikini so far!

Next bikini I found in Primark, it is this amazing yellow, orange and pink daisy print. This bikini also has a bit of padding (as I don’t want to look like an infant child) but not as much. I think this bikini top was around £8, which was an amazing price! This top also has the option of having a halter neck or a strapless design – exactly the same as the previous Debenhams bikini! I could only get the bikini bottoms in Size 8 and unfortunately they had to squeeze my bum in – so I returned them and hoped they had a larger size, but I’m still trying to hunt them down!

The last bikini that I have for you is also from Primark – this is one of the floaty, swing material tops. I’m not really sure what else I could call this, at this moment in time but I thought this was really cute when I tried it on! It has a layer underneath the front part, to make you feel more comfortable and has a thin layer of padding. You can also untie the straps on both top and bottom, which I had to do to make the bottoms fit more comfortably! I feel that this bikini balances out my proportions a bit, without obviously ‘boosting’ anything – it just creates a bit more depth, I guess, which is great! I have a feeling that this bikini was around £6 for the top and bottoms together, which was amazing!

I have ordered another bikini to try out from ASOS, and I am also thinking of trying one from Topshop and Next – so prepare yourselves for another bikini post! I will also be writing a big post on what I am taking to Australia with me, and I might do a condensed ‘clothing’ post too!
