Swimsuits In The Spotlight | Ted Baker from UK Swimwear


Swimsuits are back in fashion – woohoo! I’ve always been a much bigger fan of swimsuits than bikinis, and I’m so glad that they have made an appearance again after so many years! And with so many gorgeous and flattering styles to choose from, it’s hard not to pick up a swimsuit or two this summer.

Up until a few years ago, the choice of swimsuits available in most shops – when compared to bikinis – was appalling. However, this year things are a little bit different, and there’s lots of choice whether you prefer swimsuits, bikinis or both. Overall, I find that swimsuits are a lot more flattering and comfortable to wear than bikinis, especially when you find one which fits just right.[/pipdig_padded_text]

[pipdig_padded_text]Ted Baker is by far one of my favourite brands when it comes to clothing and accessories, and when I came across this beautiful Ted Baker swimsuit on the UK Swimwear website I fell in love! The swimsuit is just super pretty, with a really love floral and butterfly print that is unlike any other swimwear item that I own.

What I love most about this particular swimsuit is just how flattering the fit of it is. The swimsuit has a hidden support built into it, along with slightly padded cups and removable adjustable straps to support and smoothen out your figure, whilst still feeling really comfortable to wear. The swimsuit also features a navy trim around the hips to give the illusion of a slimmer waist. This was available to order according to bra size and is true to size as it literally fits like a glove![/pipdig_padded_text]

Top tip: Check out Lil-lets who have an excellent range of tampons, pads and liners with a dedicated range for teens!

Are you more of a swimsuit or a bikini person?

Bright Beach Days With Hunkemoller


There’s no better time to add a splash of colour to your wardrobe than spring and summer! I love wearing colourful clothes throughout the whole year, but there’s something about the sunnier days that draws me towards even more colourful clothing at this time of year – and my swimwear collection is no different!

Hunkemoller is a brand that I was only recently introduced to. However, their selection of stunning swimwear, all in bold and striking designs and colours, has made me fall in love with the brand. The brand’s designs are all inspired by the season’s runway trends, and you can find anything from a pastel range of colours which look great with a tan, to bolder, richer colours that look amazing on those of us with fairer skin.[/pipdig_padded_text]

[pipdig_padded_text]After browsing through the Hunkemoller website, I decided to go for this gorgeous bikini in the ‘festival’ print. All the bikinis on the Hunkemoller website are sold as separate items – so you can get your perfect fitting bikini top and bottoms. This is great, especially for those of us who normally wear a different size on their top and bottom half.

The things I love the most about this particular bikini is the striking, colourful pattern, and the pleated strap detailing on the bikini top which makes this particular bikini look really unique! The top also has some removable padding, and because the bottom has some tie fastenenings on the sides, this makes it easy to adjust the bikini bottom to your perfect fit.[/pipdig_padded_text]

[pipdig_padded_text]Hunkemoller have also got a Swimwear Style Guide on their website, where you can find some information on the perfect bikini for your body type.

What type of swimwear do you prefer? Simple or striking?
