With so many people heading off for some much needed sun I have been inundated with requests to find the perfect bikinis. Here are my favourite few on the High Street right now. Don't leave bikini shopping too late - if you find one you love and it fits then snap it up - before you know it, sizes are limited and all the dregs have gone into sale.
Topshop - Plunge Twist Front Halter Top, £21 (with bikini bottoms)
A great plain option which is offered in lots of colours and with matching tie-side bikini pants or fuller brief that are sold as separates. The halter top has moulded cups and gives decent support but i wouldn't recommend it if you are very well endowed as the halter strap may be very uncomfortable!
Ted Baker - Leaves Print Triangle Bikini Set, £64
This is just one of the many gorgeous printed bikinis Ted Baker have in this season. They are well worth a look for all you beach wear essentials with a fabulous range of stunning printed bikinis, beach cover-ups, sunglasses, footwear and beach bags.
Freya - Graphic Print Plunge Top With Fold-Over brief, £56
Freya offers a great collection of bikinis for larger busts (sizes start at D cup) and their whole collection is sold as separates. This gorgeous coral and black graphic printed bikini gives great support, shape and cleavage too! The top is more cut away than most making it a little sexier than the average larger sized bikini. There's also a halter neck version and smaller tab side bikini bottoms (which lengthen the leg) in the same range.
Seafolly (ASOS) - Vintage Rose Bikini, Top £60, Bottoms £39
A beautiful vintage rose print in pretty pastel shades. The bikini top has moulded cups and underwire support and the bottoms are low cut with ruched sides and bow detail - gorgeous!
French Connection - Dragonfly bikini set, £46
A fab dragonfly print in a triangle bikini top and tie side briefs.
Ted Baker (ASOS) - Pink stripe bikini set, £58
For something a bit more fun than the usual nautical navy stripe designs, try this bright pink bikini from Ted Baker.
M&S - Animal Print Swimsuit, £35
If you prefer a swimsuit to a bikini this a fabulous option from M&S. In a great black and white animal print, it has a detachable halter strap and a very effective tummy control panel with ruching from the side seams - super flattering!
