It is finally time to pack those winter coats away and swap them for floaty dresses, shorts and bikinis. I feel like the whole world has been waiting for this bit of serotonin for too long. So, regardless of whether you have had the holiday booked for months or even years after the effects of covid, a new bikini can help to brighten up your wardrobe and give you a new lease of life. There are so many different styles of bikinis out there it can be hard to choose just one, so maybe it is time to get one for every occasion. I have compiled 6 style of bikini that can be worn for different occasions over your holiday.

One Shoulder Bikini Set

The one shoulder style is growing ever popular, it has been seen on the runway and is all over Instagram and TikTok. It is perfect for the days lazing around the pool and has maximum comfort whilst oozing style. If you are feeling brave- the bikini top can also act as a crop top, turning the beach look into a night time look just add a flowing skirt, strappy sandals and a wicker handbag for the ultimate holiday look. 

Cut Out Bikini Set 

We have been seeing the cut out trend everywhere, it seems as if most clothing now has some form of cutout whether it is the muted small shoulder cut out or a waist high cut out to accentuate your curves. If there is any excuse to show some extra skin it is in the sun so go for a bikini with a cut out on the top and the bottoms such as a small cut on the side to accentuate the hips to have heads turning. 

Ribbed Bikini Set

If you want maximum comfort whilst still looking cute and classy then a ribbed bikini is perfect for this. There are so many colours and styles in this material it is easy to want them all but if you are looking to catch the best tan, I would opt for a triangle top bikini with a pair of high leg bikini bottoms. If you are wanting comfort over tan. then I would recommend a bandeau style top as this will keep you comfy and still catch a slight tan, pair this with a high leg bikini bottom to keep you secure perfect for lounging about.

Wide Strap Bikini 

For the girls who need an extra bit of support around the pool then a wide strap bikini top may be the perfect style for you. It can be hard finding a comfortable bikini if you have a bigger chest, the small spaghetti lace can make indents on the skin and leave your shoulders feeling sore. When you opt for a wider strap, it offers more coverage and on the shoulders so there is no need to worry about any indents being left on the skin and you can sunbathe happily.

Halter Neck Bikini

This classic style is not going anywhere so it would be the perfect investment, in fact you probably have one of these sat in your wardrobe. It is time to dig that out because halter necks are in and they are everywhere at the moment, they also offer support and accentuate your curves. The retro feel is refreshing and can be paired with a large floppy hat and 50s style sunglasses to complete the look. 

Underwire Bra Bikini

If you want that extra support and to know there is no chance of any fallouts around the pool then an underwire bra bikini is perfect for this occasion. The wiring helps to add structure and safety to the top keeping the bust where it should be. It also gives them a lift and helps to accentuate the curves. Pair with a sheer maxi skirt, large sunglasses and a bandana for a cool beach look the rest of the resort will be jealous of. 

I would recommend visiting Pretty Little Thing, ASOS, Misguided, Missy Empire, Sorelle UK, Zara and Mars the Label for bikinis that match these styles at great prices.
